If it's a laptop, you might need to activate the vga output, using the blue "fn" button in combination with f4,f6, f7 or f8, depending on your manufacturer.

On an HP, you press FN+F4 once, to turn off the LCD, and use the projector. Press it again to run both at the same time, and press a third time to use just the LCD. The cycle repeats on each press.

    also, make sure your laptop's output resolution does not exceed the projector's resolution.

I have hooked up my computer to the projector. I get the blue screen and nothing else. How can I get the image to project? Thank You!


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.

My office has a Dell 4210X projector. When we turn the projector on, a message appears that says it cannot display the current resolution. If we re-start the Dell Desktop computer that is hooked up to...


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.

Full Desktop does not appear, video does not show.


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

Stuck in standby mode


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.

Colors showing red on screen


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)

Good Luck!

Hi there

You cannot hook up a PC & Projector with just a USB cable , you have to use a VGA cable for signal ( picture )

The USB cable is just to use the scroll up or down function from the standard remote controll when doing a presentation.

Connecting a Optoma Projector to a Toshiba Laptop


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.
