1 Answer

I want to send a wireless signal from my laptop to two viewsonic pro8400 projectors at the same time. I think I need a wpd-100 wireless adapter for each projector. Is that right? What do I need to send the signal from my laptop to the projectors. There is about 60 feet between them.

You cannot display an image over a wireless network to your projector. All you will be able to do is control the projector through wireless. The image signal has to come from a cable input such as hdmi or vga, composite or component. This particular projector though HAS to be hard wired to allow wireless devices to control it anyway. So you idea of sending a wireless signal to view images from your laptop will NOT work.

My router isnt sending signal to my printer


The router doesn't send signals to a printer. The Linksys transmits a radio signal recieved by the wireless adapters on other devices, if your printer has wireless compatibility it must be setup on the printer, in the wireless settings. I don't think it's a Linksys issue. It a computer software issue. If you post the Computer Make, Model, and your OS, the Printer Make, mode,l I will try to help you. Is this the first time using the Printer?

Is toshiba satellite Satellite C660-1EL compatible with projectors?


Laptops have a video connector that you can attach an external monitor or data projector.
If you power up the external monitor or data projectorfirst before you boot up the laptop then the video signal will automatically switch to the external monitor or data projector.

I am trying to hook my notevision projector to my laptop so that i can show a powerpoint. I did not receive a cord with my projector. Which cords will i need? I received a usb to usb and VGA cord but i...


I tend to use the VGA cable. Once connected, switch the laptop on until you get to the desktop, then switch on the projector. Some will see the signal, if not, simoultaneously press your FN and relevant 'F' key to send the signal out to the VGA. You may need to do this 3 times, once to send to projector, one to send back to laptop screen and then once to send the signal to both projector and laptop screen. Sometimes this can take a short amount of time. You may want to change the projector settings to the VGA input so it doesn't constantly search for a source. If you still have problems, go into properties on your laptop and advanced. you m,ay need to unclick the box saying 'Extend to..........' (You should find what I mean from this, I am in front of a pc therefore the settings are slightly different.)

If nothing then works, it may be your video card.

Good luck

I have my computer on and connected to the projector viewsonic pj550. I then turn on the projector but it does not read the computer.


Assuming that you have all the connections between your computer and the projector already performed, you should check in you computer's manual what is the key combination necessary to switch between normal mode and presentation mode.

For instance, some Dell laptops and computers need you to press the function key (key marked with Fn in blue) and, while keeping it pressed, press also the F8 key (marked with CRT/LCD in blue) to cycle between the options.

Some HP laptops and computers will need you to do the same operation, but now using the function key and the F4 key, to select between "Computer only", "Extended (dual) presentation mode" or "Projector only" modes.

Some computers have an icon in the tray area at the bottom right part of your screen for the display characteristics. Clicking on it shows a menu where you can select the graphical options for your computer, and there must be an option for the selection of a dual display mode through which you can select computer + monitor (projector)

This same function can be called from the Control Panel in your computer. Assuming that you are using Windows XP, you will need to go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > (Graphics Adapter Configuration Setup), where (Graphics Adapter Configuration Setup) will depend on the graphics adapter chipset used in your computer (Intel, nVidia, ATI, VIA, etc). There, you might have the same options to select a dual presentation mode, to show the things in your computer display and/or your projector.

If even with these indications you are still not able to make your computer show its information through the projector, please send us more details on how you connected your computer to the projector, as well as the brand and model of your computer and the operating system you are using.

Hope this information can be helpful!

Need to get a torpedo projector to work with laptop


Unfortunately, there is no simple VGA-to-RCA adapter cable if you're connecting to a composite video input (usually colored yellow) or s-video input. VGA output is separate red, green and blue video and synchronizing signals, and they all need to be combined. You need a VGA-to-video converter to do this.

If the projector has component video input jacks, then you can buy a simple adapter cable.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

My hp laptop plays the dvd but the viewsonic does


Try pressing the "Fn" function key, holding it and pressing a key on the laptop in the "F" series that either says CRT/LCD or something similar to get it to show up on the projector. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

Viewsonic Projector PJ557D "Screen Flip"


Check the power settings o nthe laptop, go to control panel, power options. see if its set to turn off the screen if theres no activity. I doubt this is your problem but worth a try. Going back to the viewsonic picture means its not getting a signal. So either the cable may be faulty which is less likely, or it is a software problem. Does the screen flicker on the laptop when doing the same thing (if the projector is not connected)?

LCD projector no signal message


Usually means that the computer is not sending a signal out the the projector via the monitor cable. Most Windows based laptop computers allow you to connect to a second monitor by pressing the Fn + F7 or F8 key, once to allow just the projector, twice to allow both the projector and laptop screen and three times back to only the laptop.
