Hi,

Please check in the Device Manager if under "Monitors", two pnp monitors are displayed. Based on the info that you have provided, it should not be there. Try reinstalling the Video driver from the esupport page and try connecting it again and check if it works. If the issue still persists, try with another cable.

Please get back to me for any clarifications.

Thanks!!!!

Where is the projector connection on vaio fit


1

Insert one end of the VGA cable into your Sony Vaio. This is located on the left side of your computer.
2

Turn off the Infocus projector before connecting the opposite end of the VGA cable into the projector. The VGA input slot is located in the back of the projector.
3

Turn on the projector and allow time for it warm up.
4

Change the video output source on your computer to display through the projector. Press the "Windows" button and then "LCD/CRT" button on your Vaio keyboard to change the display source. On a Sony Vaio, the "LCD/CRT" button is usually "F7."
5

Focus the projector to most effectively display content from your computer. You can manually focus the projector or press the "Auto focus" button on the top of the projector.

My Canon LV-5210 displays no image for my computer. It has worked fine in the past. And it did not work a couple days ago and then it worked OK yesterday when we accidentently pushed the Input buttom. But...


If your projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?
If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 or F2 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.
this should help you :)

LCD VGA Display goes on and off.


Check refresh rate and setting for external display output. It won't work with unsuitable screen resolution, color depth or refresh rate. Check all three points and I believe you can troubleshoot the problem this way.

How to hook my ns230e to my hdtv


Looking at the spec for that model - you only have a VGA output On you HDTV do you have a VGA input for PC connection, often HD TV do - if not then we will need the make and model of the TV and type of connections available - also need to check the grahics driver on the laptop to see if it supports TV out via VGA if its to be connected to a different input on the TV anyway LETS ASSUME YOU HAVE A VGA input on the TV TV:- probably has a PC input - which is a VGA connector looks like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/SVGA_port.jpg and then you select PC input on the TV to display whats connected to that port Laptop: - Now on the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - there will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, My Sony uses F7 ---- (assuming F7) use the FN key and the F7 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>

Projector will not detect a Dell computer


Computers do not generally send an RGB signal, you should be connected via a VGA cable between the projector and the computer. The input menu on the projector should be set to VGA. The output of the computer should be equal or lower to the maximum resolution of the projector.

Multi-media projection without image


A great deal of the time DVD players are very restrictive on outputting to multiple sources due to copyright protection. In my experience, if you use your laptops function keys to toggle output (For example, on my laptop, I hit FUNCTION + F4 to cycle between LCD,LCD+VGA,VGA), you should be able to disable the laptop's LCD display, only outputting via the VGA cable. It's worked for me with my HP VP6111 and Windows XP in the past. Hope this helps!
