Question about Panasonic PT-AE900U Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Aloha, I'm trying to connect a macbook pro to a PT AE900 projector using a DVI to HDMI cable. the projector will NOT display the movie when i play it on the computer. it will NOT display the desktop of the computer. but it DOES display some of the system preference windows (which is bizarre), so i know that a signal is getting from the computer to the projector. i set the projector to HDMI mode. can't think of what else to try. can anyone help?

SOURCE: panasonic pt ae900 wont fire up

First , start over and unplug it. Wait a few minutes. Turn on AV system that is connected to it but not video or dvd player. With remote, point at is corectly and push power 1 sec or as soon as you see green light come on. Be quick.
If this fails you can wait 4 hours and repeat. OR try only projector with out any feed.

Let me know if this worked.

SOURCE: Panasonic PT-AE2000U All three HDMI Ports stoped

WOW. I just experienced the same thing. None of my HDMI ports are working, though component is fine. I've had my unit since November 2007 and had no problems until this. I think the HDMI board has gone bad and will require replacing.

What might be the problem since my macbook pro is connected to the projector through a HDMI to VGA adapter, yet the screen remains black?


Vga and hdmi are different formats. Unless you are using a coverter box that translates the data from one format to another it won't work. Vga is analog and hdmi is digital

Recognize macbook connect


You may need to check the settings of your mac book that permits you to output the signal to an external display. Also you may need to purchase a display port adapter (VGA, HDMI or DVI) that is compatible with the input connector on the projector

How can I hook up MacBook Pro with Optoma 1690 Projector? Am I supposed to hit a certain function key to get Projector to see MacBook


You may need a certain connection (MiniDisplay Port to DVI, or MiniDisplay Port to VGA). If you're connecting to an HDMI-compatible projector, you'll need an adapter. You'll also need an adapter if connecting your MDP (MiniDisplay Port) to a DVI or VGA port. Here are some helpful links:
#1 MDP Adapter Video (YouTube)
#2 MDP to HDMI Adapter (RadioShack)
#3 MDP to VGA Adapter (Apple Store)
#4 MDP to DVI Adapter (Apple Store)

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini


Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken

Macbook recognizes dell projector, but not vice versa


Hello,
Your Macbook should automaticaly find the best resolution, if everything was OK. Is there any HDMI input on the dell projector? What projector is it? Is there is an HDMI input, you can use a HDMI to mini DVI cable: better picture and sound than VGA, and will probably solve your problem

It is probably mirroring the screens on your MacBook and the projector. If you want different resolutions and things on each screen, go to the Apple menu, System Preferences, Displays, Arrangement and uncheck the "Mirror Displays" checkbox.

Macbook pro + IBM m4000


Depends on the connections you have on both. Most MacBook Pros have a DVI connector on the side. If the IBM projector takes that sort of input, then all you need is that cable.
If the IBM projector has a VGA input, then you'll need an adaptor from DVI to VGA.
(VGA input is standard monitor looking connector.)
