Question about Gateway Projector 210 Multimedia Projector
Greetings, I recently purchased a used Gateway DLP 210 projector. Upon turning the device on, the screen displays a black haze/hue on the left side and top. When the image is flipped between front, rear, upside down and so forth the distortion remains as if there is some sort of physical impediment. I have taken the bulb out and do not see any indication of physical blockage. Have you ever seen this type of failure before?
The color wheel may not be turning. Remove the lamp and see if it will turn manually.

Then 'No signal' or 'unsupported signal' messages are usually because your display is set too high. To see if this is your issue, hoop it back up too your computer & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. Assuming you are using windows, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes, then drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector.
Note for Laptop users-- By default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue <fn> button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control <crtl>) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you

If the problem is what I describe as a blue haze over the entire image projected, I was told this is a defect in the cable - we have a Dell Video Projector 2300 - and it takes only a dell VGA cable.
So, the problem is in the cable - solution is replace cable.
