This is done by all Macbooks when they connect to a display. The computer is setting itself up and fixing the resolution and size issues, so that the image will display correctly onto the second monitor (the Epson 410W)

Pink center in middle of Epson projector display


You have a problem with the blue UV filter. It has degraded. The UV is no longer being blocked and it has cooked the blue LCD chip as well.

Repair may be possible. But unless your projector is worth at least a grand or more then it is probably not economical.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

You may have disconnected the projector while your laptop was about to go to sleep. Try (force) restarting the computer by holding down the power button for a few seconds, wait til it shuts down, then power-up again!

My Macbook Pro wont boot - stays on the blue screen


The fact that the "BONG" sound (or better known as the MAC CHIME) does come on and nothing further means that the computer cannot find your hard drive or (sometimes worse) cannot find the operating system. This means that you will have to remove the hard drive... then insert it nice and firmly again. Try now to boot. If nothing happens then your drive has gone faulty and it could mean that you may have lost your data... NOT NECESSARILY though.... What I mean by that is that you may still be able to access the dat when you connect the "faulty" drive to another computer via USB with an external casing and then get your DATA off it.
