Question about Dell 3200MP Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Won't project; can't find signal

I have Dell projector 2300 attached to Dell computer with Windows XP Professional operating system. It was projecting fine. Then I placed a CD with a video on it and the computer monitor screen went "crazy " Then I lost projection. The projector hasn't been able to pick up the computer's signal since. I know that the projector is still working fine because I've attached it to other computers and it projected fine. But not with original computer. The computer is brand new. I figure there must be something that got triggered "off" when the Cd was put into the computer and started. But can't figure out what to do.

    Hi, I have a very similar problem in that my 3200mp projector won't recognise the signal from my Acer WinXP laptop or my brothers hp WinXP laptop and i've tried all the display/Fn options and still no luck.
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I have a HP Pavillion tx2000, which is attached to a HP xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base. I was watching Doctor House from a internet stream from Hulu.com, when the computer made that sound it makes when a device is unplugged from it (but nothing was unplugged), then the lights on the buttons of the computer flashed while the sound was made, then the screen went black (but you could still hear the audio, then the screen came back but the video was frozen, and then I lost connection. And the projector hasn't been able to recieve the signal since then.

What worked for me was instead of pressing Fn while pressing F8. I pressed Fn and F4. The first time doing this my laptop screen went black, but the image was projected on to my projector. When I did this once again the image then appeared on both my laptop and on my computer.

Make sure that your computer was turned on first (don't ask me why). Then hold down the Fn key while pressing F8. Hope that helps.

We are using a Dell 2300 projector. The Power


check that you have a signal going out of the monitor socket on your lalptop.

On Dell with projector connected and switched on, press the blue fn button bottom left usually, and while holding, press one marked CRT/LCD, (maybe f8) this will cycle to the following.
laptop only, laptop and monitor, monitor only, while holding Fn button press until you have desired outcome.

hope this helps.

give it to me its broken.

but no really, its broken. you might try an alternative input, but short of that its a pickup sensor issue- not seeing the signal.

replace the master circuit board in it, or just buy a new one.

NEC LT35 color problem


If you're trying to project video, then the unit needs professional service. If you're trying to project from a computer, you may have a loose display cable, broken pins in one or both ends of the display cable, or broken conductors (wires) within the display cable. The computer sends its image information as a template of RED image components, GREEN image components and BLUE image components with the projector overlays to create the complete image with blended color values. (The computer also sends HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL synchronization signals, but those don'e affect the color content of the projected image.) That's why I'm suspicious of the display cable, conductors or pins.

Dell 2200mp searching for signal


One problem may be that you must tell the PC to send the signal to the external monitor. Usually, if you hold down the function button and hit the F5 key you will see several options on the screen. (Other laptops use different function keys. Look for the one that shows two tv screens. You want the option which shows the laptop and the external monitor.) To advance between options, you hit the F5 button again and it moves over to the next option.

My computer needs me to lower the resolution on the laptop in order to send the signal to the projector. If you also need to do that, you can do it in Control Panel, Display, and Settings, and lower the resolution on screen number 1.

Doing both of these things should work.

Also, confirm that it is finding signals by hooking it to a DVD or video and see if it finds the signal through one of the other ports.
