This quite very easy to connect,all you need to do is to follow the procedures,
1. Check your DVD player for compatible RBG ports; the RGB ports on your projector are for component video cables. You can purchase component video cables from your local electronics store if you can't locate the originals.
2. Find a place to set up up the projector. A table or desk will work fine. The built-in keystone effect will allow your projector to adjust its beam if it's not directly centered. So don't worry about perfectly centering the projector or mounting it at an angle. You can find the keystone effect in the projector's menu and settings when you turn it on.
3. Position the DVD player near the projector. Match the red, blue and green heads of the component cable to the corresponding ports on the DVD player and the projector. Plug the ends securely into their respective ports.
4. Connect the heads of the RCA cable to the red and white ports on the back of the DVD player that are labeled "Audio Out." Connect the other ends to the "Audio In" port on your surround-sound receiver.
5. Plug the the power cables of both the projector and the DVD player into power outlets, then turn on the power. As the projector warms up, it will search for sources of input, like RGB ports or composite ports. Insert a DVD into the player to test your setup.
6. Correct "trapezoid' screen angles with the keystone effect. Press the "Menu" button on your projector and navigate to the settings. Under the "Settings" menu, you will see the keystone effect. Select it and adjust it to "square" out your screen

But if you want to use VGA, DVI or S -video output cable, you take the following steps,

1. Locate the DVI, VGA or S-video output port on the DVD player. Many modern DVD players come equipped for a variety of video output formats. Popular digital video formats, like DVI, are prevalent on newer, and especially high-definition, models, while analog video formats, like VGA and S-video, are more popular among older DVD players with analog output.
2. Locate the video output port on the DVD player that corresponds to your available video cable. VGA, DVI and S-video cables are designed to fit only into the proper port on a DVD player or other device. If the DVD player complies with standard color coding for ports, the DVI port will be either white or surrounded by a white-shaded area on the DVD player. VGA connectors will be similarly colored blue, while S-video connectors will be small, round and black.
3. Connect one end of the cable to the "Out" port on the DVD player. With the output port identified, gently but firmly push the video cable into the port. If it does not go in easily, check the cable connector to verify that you're using the correct gender (male cables should plug in to female ports, for example); if the cable is the same gender as the port, check the other end of the cable for compatibility. If neither end of the cable will fit into the "Video Out" port on the DVD player, you may need a gender changer for your cable; these adapters are inexpensively and readily available at most electronics stores. When the cable is connected, use the protruding knobs on either side of the cable terminal to screw the cable gently in place (note that S-video cables do not need to be screwed in place).
4. Connect the loose end of the cable to the "In" port on the projector. Examine the projector to find the video "In" port on the projector; there may be several ports, but they should follow the standard color format described in Step 2 above. Gently but firmly press the cable connector into the port, checking for gender compatibility, and screw the cable in place. The DVD player is now connected to the projector and ready for use.

Hope this help in solving the problem, Take care.....

Projector signal goes bad after 25 minutes

It appears the projector was over heating. Why it affected the DVD signal and not the computer signal, I do not know. The other confusing thing was the projector was hanging off the ceiling and should have had plenty of circulation. When I climbed up to check for excessive dust, I found that the lens cap had been placed over the intake vent. I blew off the dust and removed the cap. After running the projector for an hour, it appears that the problem has been solved.

Dell 2300mp projector

I have this same projector and am pushing 4500hr on my current bulb. its starting to get a little dim being that the bulb is only rated for 2000hrs. There are brightness setting is the setup of the projector. There are also 4 display modes. game and PC being the brightest. You can change those with the remote. These are the only factors that should effect the brightness. I would say that you might have gotten a bad bulb. try putting the bulb from the "bright" projector into the "new" one and see if that makes a diffrence. also im looking for parts and bulbs for this model projector. If you would like to get rid of anything please let me know. Hope this helps and good luck.
