Question about InFocus Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have an Acer laptop approx. 2 years old. I am trying to show a folder from My Pictures on a InFocus in 20 series. Projector is up and on computer source. When I start up the computer, the projector displays the Windows screen, then stops showing what is on the computer monitor. I have pressed Fn and F5 with the monitor symbol on it, but nothing works. All I have is a blue screen with a searching message in lower left corner.

You need to enable the 2nd video output in the video card settings!

right click on desktop select properties and select the settings tab
I have an Acer laptop - 34111b4.jpg

Select the monitor 2, click on extend my desktop to this monitor.

Then you can drag windows either out from your main monitor, to up, down, or the sides debends on where you set the 2nd display, you can also change the position of the 2nd screen by draging it around in the middle.

After having the projector on for 15-20 minutes the lamp will go out for 1-2 minutes then turn back on with no intervention This will repeat at no set intervals. The projector is not quite 5 years old...


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Cannot see computer displyed on output of infocus screen shot


Many laptop computers do not automatically turn on their external
video port when a projector is connected. On many laptops, the activation function key is labeled with an icon or the text CRT/LCD.

Try the Function Key with the Icon of a monitor to enable the external video port.

If that does work, look at the settings on the projector using the buttons on the top.

Check the "Default Source"

Default Source toggles among Computer 1 analog, Computer 1 digital, Computer 2, and Video. This determines which source the
projector checks first for active video during power-up. Highlight
Default Source and click the left or right mouse button to toggle
among the options.

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.

Infocus IN72 Projector. NO POWER OR NOT POWERING UP


This model projector is very sensitive to internal heat. I f by some reason the projector was abruptly powered down without the use of its normal procedure, in other words, unpluging cord from wall while on or power outage in premises, then the heat remains trapped and the sensors overheat and subsequently shuts down the unit. Now, although, once the sensors cool down it should reinstate operation some sensors become permanently damaged due to the extreme heat. In this case without having more facts, i believe it is the cause. I recommend a free check up to your nearest shop, most shops will offer free check ups.

Infocus IN72 powers up but no image, replaced the bulb but still no image...


Hi there

This is most probably a Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) problem.

Make 100% sure that this unit is out of warranty because InFocus Projectors come out standard with a 2 year warranty.

Infocus x1a projector shuts down after 30 seconds - dust problem ??


There is a safety themostat inside the unit (looks like a silver button the approx size of a dime) that will shut the system down if you do not have adequate airflow. You can dis-assemble the projector by removing the screws on the bottom and rear of the housing and pressing in the plastic locking tabs inside the cover all around the perimeter but I would advise against this unless you are comfortable with delicate nature of the projector.
