There is a "mute" screen which will hide the picture on your projector. If thats not the case there seems to be a problem with the remotes/controls fo rthis projector, as my functions do not workcorrectly all the time.
Lastly, the red x in the upper corner meant that you had no signal going to the projector, and would have no effect on shutting down.
Hope this helps

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 :)

Blinks blue then green and turns off after that.


All of these sets had bad picture tubes--the tubes are no longer available--can only be got on a rebuild basis--very expensive----Blue tube seems to be the most common to go bad.

If the screen goes bright blue the set will shut down as the set detects too much current is being pulled by that tube--

Other than replacing the tube you do have one option that may resolve your problem--it may return the set to operation----it also may just only buy you some time.

These sets have a black plastic block located behind the front speaker grill--there is a inspection plate behind the grill and behind it is the square black plastic block with 6 controls molded into it----it is the Screen/Focus block.


I can tell you how to get at it---what you want to do if you do this is get the grill and inspection plate off and locate the block.

There will be two rows of 3 controls---one row will be marked Focus---do not touch those.

The other row will be marked SCREEN---you have to look very close to see which is red, green, blue.

With the front grill and inspection plate removed you turn the set on----have it on a Video input2.gif with nothing connected to it---if you locate the Blue screen control you turn it to the left until you do not see blue or curved blue trace lines---if you turn it the wrong way the set will shut down---

Once you get the blue set---look at the screen on the blank input---you should only see the video input display---if you see some green or red you need to adjust those controls also.

Understand--even if this works--you may only be buying some time--if one of the tubes caused this sooner or later it may happen again.

Let me know if you have questions or need advice.

The screen was green with lines through it. Periodically it will flash and power off. Now it's all blue and will not stay on.

Display has red tint across entire screen. Could it be the bulb? If so, is that still available? Approximate cost?


two possible solutions----either a problem on the small circuit board that is connected to the RED picture tube OR the red screen control is turned up too high. These sets have a small square block with RED,Green, Blue screen controls(same place also has red, green, blue Focus controls) if you remove the speaker grill you will find an inspection plate made of masionite---the focus/screen block is visable behind it----get a flashlight and look carefully at the block---one row of 3 plastic shafts is Focus(don't touch those) the other 3 are Screens(you should see R, G, B marked) go to a blank video input(one with nothing attached) and turn the RED SCREEN CONTROL JUST SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT UNTIL the red goes away.

A Function Key cpmbination is driving display choice: on my Acer (travelmate) is FN + F5 on your model could be different (On Compaq 6710 is FN+F4)
Check your manual or your keyboard for function symbol (Blue marked).

This is going to hurt..
You probably have a polarizer failing on one of the LCD panels inside.
There are 3 of these in LCD projectors, red, green, and blue. They all get the light fed into them, that light is then combined and fed through the projection lens.

You will need to contact Sanyo to find a service centre to replace it.
