Alot of times if the projector is not displaying the info from your computer it has to do with drivers or the actual resolution that the video card is set to. Note most projectors only support standard resolutions like 800x600 and 1024x768. You might try setting the video card to these resolutions to see if this makes a difference. The links below will help you do this.

If you still have trouble the issue may be with the driver all together and you just need to uninstall and reinstall your video card drivers.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Computer screen on, Projector off


If you are running Windows 7\8:
Leave the ViewSonic projector on.
Right click anywhere on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution".
In the display column, it will give you an option to select your computer monitor, the ViewSonic, or to clone the displays.
Select your computer monitor display only.
Shut off the ViewSonic projector.

If you are running Windows XP:
The process is basically the same except you find the settings under Control Panel > Display.

My projector won't project anything. the computer recognizes the projector, but the projector does not recognize the computer. also when i turn on the projector the benq logo doesn't show.


Disconnect all inputs to the BENQ and power on. Do the lights come on as per normal operation. Does the lamp come on when the power button is pressed. Does anything show when the menu is selected.

"clean and reset filter" alert is displayed even


You can reset the "Filter Time" on your projector and it will clear this error out of the system.

1) Clean Filter
2) Turn the power on
3) Hit the Menu button
4) Once the menu appears choose "Options"
5) Choose "Filter Time"
7) While the time is displayed hold the "Reset" button on the remote for 3 seconds
8) The "Reset" menu will pop-up and choose reset.

That should take care of it.

I have my computer on and connected to the projector viewsonic pj550. I then turn on the projector but it does not read the computer.


Assuming that you have all the connections between your computer and the projector already performed, you should check in you computer's manual what is the key combination necessary to switch between normal mode and presentation mode.

For instance, some Dell laptops and computers need you to press the function key (key marked with Fn in blue) and, while keeping it pressed, press also the F8 key (marked with CRT/LCD in blue) to cycle between the options.

Some HP laptops and computers will need you to do the same operation, but now using the function key and the F4 key, to select between "Computer only", "Extended (dual) presentation mode" or "Projector only" modes.

Some computers have an icon in the tray area at the bottom right part of your screen for the display characteristics. Clicking on it shows a menu where you can select the graphical options for your computer, and there must be an option for the selection of a dual display mode through which you can select computer + monitor (projector)

This same function can be called from the Control Panel in your computer. Assuming that you are using Windows XP, you will need to go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > (Graphics Adapter Configuration Setup), where (Graphics Adapter Configuration Setup) will depend on the graphics adapter chipset used in your computer (Intel, nVidia, ATI, VIA, etc). There, you might have the same options to select a dual presentation mode, to show the things in your computer display and/or your projector.

If even with these indications you are still not able to make your computer show its information through the projector, please send us more details on how you connected your computer to the projector, as well as the brand and model of your computer and the operating system you are using.

Hope this information can be helpful!
