    sooo...the tech support came in 1/2 hour after the presentation began and after a 20 minute struggle he fixed the problem but no idea what he did...It was kind of fun to improvize thought. Hopefully things will work tomorow:) thanks for all the help.

    I connect my 1201mp to my Inspiron 2200 but the projector does not display the computer screen. It keeps saying "searching for signal". I've tried different cables and pressing the Fn and F7 keys, but it doesn't work. I tried the projector on my Inspiron1525 and it worked perfectly. What can it be?

You guys need to check Drivers of VGA (display).
sometime, it does not find if there is no proper driver for it.
so just
right click on My computer>Manage>Device manager (under system tools)>Expand Display adapters>and disable your driver except remte one (Double click on it then choose do not use this device (disable) and try to search again if you PC/Laptop finds then you got driver problem. And to fix it your need to download right driver from your Laptop manufacturer website.

Assuming no probs on the projector, PC and cables -
Try lowering down the screen display resolution of your PC before pressing the FN + F7. Once displayed on the projector, you can increase to desired/workable settings. (Right click on a clear space of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, in Screen resolution, move slider towards the extreme left).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things went or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Does anyone know how many rooms and floors there are? I've been combing each episode trying to look at the reception desk and the elevator control panel but I can't seem to find anything solid.

That's maybe because Hotel Cortez has several walled corridors and secret rooms. However Hotel Cortez is inspired by the real Cecil Hotel, also located in Los Angeles which has 14 floors, maybe they get inspiration for floors count too. This is a photo of the exterior of the Hotel Cortez, which can come in handy. Remember to keep into account the dungeons and the Penthouse. Here , instead, Hotel Cortez plans as studied by Will Drake. As you can see there are several worksheets, unfortunately the picture is not really clear because of the colors. This is the board with the rooms keys at Gabriel's checking in. They seems to be approximately eighty rooms (also taking into account the numbers of known rooms).

When I turn the projector on I get scattered bright white pixels showing up on the screen with no color. What causes this.

Bad news: the problem is the light engine! most expensive part of the projector. Due to high temperature inside and extended usage with poor ventilation, plastic filters inside the light engine start melting and picture gets "spotty". Next, the color matrix quits and one of primary colors is missing. In any case, light engine is "goner". It's very big job to replace it. I would surrender to repair facility in your place. Or, if you can get replacement projector for a good price, just do that. Your projectors repair bill might be $500+,or more. due to high cost of light engine.
Good luck,

Our Samsung dcs 12b phone won't let us dial in another number for a conference call. I get as far as the area code when it beeps and shows "plug out" message on the screen.

Hi, have you checked that you have enough channels (lines) available, and I know it sounds obvious but have you dialled 9? I've put a Video on explaining Conference - it is off this might help I hope.

My son wants to use a projector along with PS3 stand alone, for both gaming and movies. the projector would therefore require inbuilt speakers or connectors to external speakers. Any suggestions best...

 if he is spends a lot of time gaming, i am not so sure a projector is the best bet. all projectors use bulbs, that have a certain life-span. ( the infocus i have is about 3,000-4000 hours) that might seem like a lot. but if he starts to use it for movies and tv, it can add up fast.  to replace a bulb, it costs about $350 - $400 .  most projectors need a dark room to look their best. if the room that he uses his system is well lit, the image will be "washed out".  the high end "hi-def" projectors are costly, and personally i would not want an small expensive piece of electronics around a bunch of hyped up teens.  his gaming experience would be the same (or in some cases better)  with lets say a 32" LCD  720p in a dark room but sitting more closer to the set than normal, and now there are some great buys, much less than you would spend for a projector. ( dont forget, with a projector, you  also need a screen)

The projectors periodically go to a blue screen in the middle of a presentation.

are they hooked up to a laptop? we've had the same problem with that before. When hooked up to the laptop it goes to sleep or turns off. bringing up the blue screen. maybe change the settings in the computer.
