make sure you're on the correct source on the projector. now i'm not sure if you're using a laptop, if you are, then you're gonna have to press FN and F5 (depending what type of laptop you have, sometimes it's F8) buttons on your laptop. this activates the computer port of your laptop.
The PC interigates the projector when it is booted, that is why it works when connected for the second time. If you connected it up and after waiting for the projector to boot, then boot the PC, it may well save you the trouble of resetting the resolution to match the projector. Hope that helps.
You must tell the laptop to change display mode--there are 3...Normally, the key-press is something like "function key, F4"--look for a small tv screen symbol on one of the "F" keys--default mode is "laptop only", Press and hold "fn" and then press the appropriate "F" key, the laptop will switch to "laptop/external display". Another set of key presses will get "external display only" mode. And, finally, the next sequence will bring you back to the default mode. Make sure you turn on the computer and *then* turn on the projector to head off any sync probs.---Rick
The light bulb must be seated in perfectly, otherwise it won't see a connection and won't come on. take the bulb out, and make sure the connections don't have any dirt on it. Anything that can obstruct a connection. Give that a try.
Hi Stella, There is a button on the projector called "Auto Image" Most people don't realize it's even there. Press it while you are seeing this problem and most likely the projector will figure out the image issue and all will be well. Note: this feature is nowhere in the menu(s)
I bought mine new... hooked it up and got the same response. I would have torn my hair out but I am bald! Checked everything. Great frustration. Finally, I thought to replace the cable with one I have on my monitor. Worked perfectly! A brand new cable and it was faulty! Contacted the company and they sent out a new one. Even sent a packet to ship my bad one back so they could find out what happened. No connection problems with the new cable.
