Question about Lightware VP 800 Plus Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Can't get computer images to project

Our church has a Lightwave VP800 projector we need to use for vacation bible school. When I hook my Dell computer up to it with a S-video cable, the logo image being projected "blinks" but my images don't show up.

I have gone thru the trouble-shooting items I've found online but still can't get an image to show up. Help!

Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.

Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

Dell 4100MP Image Not Centered Thru Lens


No to your question. The lens is fixed it cannot shift horizontally only although there are projectors that can do this. I am sure you have the front foot retracted? I have had to do the same as you are doing or find a lower table.

Vp800 LCD Projector has dark blob on display.


blow out any dust with canned air. chances are there is an object blocking the image. or there is a crack or burn spot on the 2nd fly-eye lens (diffuser). the first one is right next to the lamp (if you remove the lamp, you'll see it). the second is right on the other side of it.

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.

Won't project; can't find signal


Make sure that your computer was turned on first (don't ask me why). Then hold down the Fn key while pressing F8. Hope that helps.
