While it is frozen on that "Searching" screen, hold the SRC button down on the actual projector for an extended time. Then after letting it up, hit it briefly one or two times until it finds a source. Make sure that under Projector Setup/Management/ "Auto Source Select" is checked. This brought my Cinego back from the dead.

You can't, since the unit doesn't have the ability to do what the remote can do. However, the remotes are inexpensive and easy to obtain. Simply type in "Cinego Remote" as a search expression on your search engine, and several places will pop up. Alternatively, contact your local Radio Shack store.
Three (3) things you can try: 1. Lower down the Screen resolution of your laptop as well as the Color quality and the Screen refresh rate before doing the Fn + F5. If it works, adjust thereafter; 2. Do a soft (Factory) reset of your Cinego in the in the Management Menu (credit to Cooljazz); and/or 3. it is just "slow" in sensing the presence of a VGA source as it
cycles in its selection, internal DVD, VGA, Composite Video IN. Since
it does not have a manual source selection, your only option is to
really wait or ...Verify that "Auto Source Select" is enabled in the
Management Menu (buttons-Proj/Setup then >/9) and "tap" the "SRC"
button on the projector itself to manually initiate the input/source
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
