Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just bought a used canon realis sx60 with about 100 hour of use. I have connected this 1400x1050 projector to my laptop which has a resolution of 1280x800. My laptop only has a vga out. Yes I do know that this is not the most favorable situation and I wonder if this is what's causing the ghost/blurry images. Or, would better cables solve this problem. Thank you Cynthia

    Thank you H4cker. I tried making resolution changes before but the one you suggested along with better cables did the trick. Thanks!

Try setting your PC resolution to a matching aspect ratio. In this case 1400 x 1050 = 4:3 and your PC resolution is 16:10. So something like 1024 x 768 on your PC *MIGHT* do the trick.
Otherwise try going through the menus on the projector to reset the display. Maybe the previous owner had specific settings for their environment. Details here: https://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/projectors/lcos_projectors/realis_sx60#BrochuresAndManuals

Projector starts, goes into search mode with a laptop plugged into it, but does not connect with the laptop.


Try looking at your screen resolution settings on your laptop. For Windows right click on the desktop screen then click screen resolution, or display settings and see if the projector is recognized on your laptop. If yes try changing the resolution as the laptop may be trying to connect at a resolution that isn't supported by the projector.

DVD video shows on laptop, but black on projector.


Assuming you are connected to the projector via the VGA port 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, but can be any of the F keys ----- (assuming F5 as an example ) use the FN key and the F5 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>

Projector can't connect to laptop


We just solved a similar issue. Most likely your PC or laptop is currently set to a display resolution that is too high for the projector or is one that it cannot handle. Try setting your computer display to 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 and see if you can get the projector to work. If it does, then you can figure out the maximum display resolution you can use. Also consult your projector documentation for supported resolution modes.

For the PICO in particular, it looks like those are in general for small mobile devices (320 x 240 or less displays), and the PK102 model has native VGA (640 x 480) support with extended support for 800 x 600. You will not be able to use this on most modern computers except at the lowest resolution setting for the PC.

No display on expantion vga port for projector


The problem might be related to your native screen resolution. The C702TU laptop has a resolution of 1280 x 800. Most projectors do not support this resolution and if you cloned the main display, your projector cannot sync at this resolution. Look for an option to output a second display )instead of cloning) within your display settings. If your projector is plugged into your VGA port and turned on, Windows usually detects the second display automatically. Change the resolution on the second screen to something like 1024x768 or 800x600. These resolutions are supported almost universally across projectors.

Infocus projector 4805 connected to Toshiba laptop


1.
Connect the external display port on your laptop computer to the projection system, and then turn on the projector. For information about connecting external devices to your laptop, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
2.
Set the display resolution of your laptop computer to match the resolution of the projector system. First, on your laptop, open the Display Properties dialog box by using the Display icon in Control Panel, and click the Settings tab. Then, in Screen resolution area, move the slider to adjust the display resolution of your laptop. If you don't know which setting to choose, try 800 x 600 pixels; this is a common setting for many projector systems.

Compaq Evo N800C


Try setting your resolution to 1400x1050, or the max that is available.
Also, use only 60Hz.
Use the native resolution of the screen, otherwise the laptop will interpolate pixels and make text look fuzzy.
