We have a universal remote and went into the menu and turned off all of the inputs but the HDMI input.

It sounds like your module that controls the menu and the "cycling through" may not be in sync or may needs to be replaced. I had times have had to make sure the Optoma EP716 had to be first plugged in and "on" before the PC can communicate with it. Once the Optoma is "ON", then turn your PC/Notebook on. If there is no connection via USB, "S" cable and/or your VGA (be sure your PC/Notebook is set to have the external VGA "active"). Let me know if this works or not. Then we can try to move forward with other options for troubleshooting. BTW...how long have you had this multimedia and how many hours of use does it have?...JGUAM

Green screen on VGA with Viewsonic PJD5122


VGA is separated analog signals in Red, Blue, and Green. Under normal cases, you'd be able to change the cable, source, or input port and resolve the issue. Unfortunately, if the green tint persists with all input ports on the projector (The two blue ones are Input, the black one is output. There is a potential that attaching input to the black output port could have caused the damage), different sources, and different cables, then it's likely a problem with the projector hardware itself and would require warranty service or otherwise repair or replacement of the projector. If you have an alternate way the projector can be attached, then try that (Such as SVideo), otherwise there may not be any good solution in this case short of checking the guts of the system.

Connect laptop cable


Hi Anna,

It is impossible to connect to a projector with just a usb cable. You will need a VGA cable (for older models of projectors and laptops) or an HDMI cable which can be used with newer models.

Best of luck to you.

Hey my InFocus LP530 wont detect my pc/laptop, ive changed the auto sorce select to on but still nothing, so i changed it to off and tried all sorces manually but still nothing, Any ideas?


set the pc screen resolution to a low setting.
connect the vga output on the pc to an external monitor and check that the video appears on the external monitor. change the mode of operation on the pc until it does appear.
then disconnect the external monitor at the end of the vga cable, and connect the free cable end to the projector and auto source search for the vga input signal

How do I set up my Elmo to a data projector & a laptop? Specifically, Where do I put the RGB cords - what get's hooked up to what? Thanks!


I am going to bet you got a manual with the TT-02rx that explains the connectivity. If not, you can go to www.elmousa.com and download the manual from the TT-02rx page. Look on page 30.

TT-02rx can be connected in a couple of ways:

1. Directly to Projector - connect a standard VGA cable from the RGB output on the TT-02rx to a RGB (VGA) input on your projector. This will allow you to directly display anything you put under the Elmo camera.
2. USB to laptop, VGA from laptop to your projector. You can connect a standard USB cable from the Elmo to an open USB port on your laptop. From the laptop, you will need to connect VGA cable from output jack to projector input. To view images from the Elmo, you need to have installed the Imagemate software on your laptop first. Elmo can only be viewed thru the software interface.
3. The last option is run VGA from your laptop to VGA input on the Elmo. Then run VGA from Elmo to your projector. This offers the greatest amount of versatility as you can switch between the image on your computer screen and the image on the doc camera. Adding the USB cable as described in 2 above will also allow you to use the digital features such as image capture, reveal, spotlight, etc.

HOW DO I CONNECT A AN EZPRO 610 PROJECTOR TO A LAPTOP COMPUTER.
