Question about Sanyo PLC-XU73 LCD Projector
Hello, Here is a step by step process on how to connect a laptop to your projector.
Start with projector and laptop turned off
Attatch all cables required, power and signal (VGA) for both proj and laptop
At the laptop end, ensure that the VGA is securely fastened using the screws attatched to the cable
at the projector you should notice there is more than one socket that the cable can go in, you need to make sure you are connecting to the INPUT not the OUTPUT.
Turn on the projector and allow it to go through it's start up process, once started select the input that you plugged the cable into (usually INPUT 1, PC, or VGA).
Turn on Laptop and wait for it to do it's start up process, log in if needed.
If by now you don't have an image on screen, you'll need to try and change your output arrangement.
THE FOLLOWING IS FOR PC ONLY, NOT MAC
This is very simple, but a bit awkward to explain so bare with me. To do this you need to hold down the 'Fn' key and press the correct F# key, this changes with every brand of laptop, so for instance HP and Compaq is F4, IBM is F7, Toshiba is F5. You may be able to tell just by looking at the symbols on your F# keys. If you don't know which it is you'll have to look it up (I don't know all of them sorry). So if you had a HP laptop you would hold the 'Fn' key and press the 'F4' key.
You should now have an image on your screen, if you have lost the image on your laptop's screen after doing the previous step, press the Fn F# again, and it should send to BOTH screens.
The projector that your using is designed to run a resolution of 1024x768. When the image came up on screen it should have changed it automatically, however if it didn't do this:
right click on your desktop and click on 'properties'
click on the settings tab up the top
under 'screen resolution' you should see a horizontal slide bar move that to 1024x768
If a box pops up asking you to confirm the setting click yes quickly or it will revert back.
I hope this helps,
