Try changing to your S video wire input.If you hear a cracking sound it could be you've blown your speakers.It depends on your application but I run all my DVD equipment through my stereo system,just run the same video wire to your stereo and select that input on the stereo .And yes they do have remote controls,try ebay where you can get another vp800 w/remote under 100.

Can't get computer images to project
Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.

You don't probably, your laptop screen is not exactly becoming magnified, the resolution is being lowered to match the maximum resolution of your projector which is only 800x600. They are setup as "cloned" together. You could try setting up an "extended desktop" rather than having the projector "cloned" with your laptop screen, that way you can change the resolution (within their allowed limits) of both displays independently. To do this, Right click on desktop and select video setting or the control panel of whatever video card you have. If you can set up an extended desktop, it is here that you'll be able to do it.
How do you clean inside the lens
canned air. if you take the lens assembly apart to try and clean it any other way, there's a slim chance you'll get it back together properly. plus, they thread lock it. it's usually air-tight, but if it isn't, used the canned air to blow the dust out. chances are, the dust is inside the projector itself and on the back side of the lens assembly.
Won't turn on.
It is cheaper to buy a used one off of ebay than have it repaired.It is so out dated that most shops won't touch them.If you buy another keep the old one for parts ,they are great little projectors.
