Do I need to download drivers for the Brookstone pocket projector? I plugged in my HDMI cable but the images are fuzzy and won't focus.

SOURCE: Picture problem

Your problem might be a simple signal issue. Make sure with your cable provider that you have adequate signal coming into the cable box to convert the signal though all those components, especially the DVI-HDMI converter. The DVI SHOULD be configured to run video only. try bypassing the audio signal with an RCA component cable. This should take the audio load off of the DVI port and re-route it through the RCA jacks, thereby supporting a better video signal. If this doesn't work, then it might be an equipment issue. The 6200 was originally designed to run on RCA component cables. Hold out till after July 1st for new CableCARD ready HD devices.

Do a factory reset to the projector. In my experience that fixes alot of image problems.

Brookstone Pocket Projector - Good Dog Digital


Projector turns on, displays Brookstone logo and then turns off. It's not the power; the unit is plugged in.

It is most likely your lamp. If you replace the lamp then you need to reset the lamp timer back to zero or it will keep shutting off on you.

There is a blue line when plugged into laptop

I had the same problem. The projector works wonderfully connected to my iPhone (with an adapter), and connected to other kinds of laptops, but not with mine. Apparently the projector is not compatible with every laptop. I had to connect my projector to my laptop via a Netgear PTV1000 streaming player in order to use it.
You connect to the player wirelessly. Then use the HDMI cable to connect the player to the projector.
Streaming Players
I happened to already have the player so I didn't have to purchase a new device. I hope this helps you.


The Brookstone manual claims it will fully charge after 3-5 hours, but it takes much longer then that. Mine does not indicate green light, but it seems it stops blinking red when its fully charged. After that it run on power directly from the ac-adapter.

If you keep it connected to the AC-adapter after it have stopped blinking red (do not disconnect it at all), it will start to run on the adapter and will not turn off. You will feel the AC-adapter gets hot while its running, something it does not while regular charging.

If it still dont stop blinking red after having it connected to power for 3 days, your AC-adapter is probably faulty. This happened to me, and after allot of research I found this replacement from a US seller on ebay (only five dollars included shipping).

Good luck with your projector. It a really cool little thing, but it has some design flaws.

Best regards.

Check the system requirements on the Bluetooth dongle. If your system does not fit all the requirements, the device is not going to work. The requirements for the Bluetooth dongle are printed in the user manual and packaging. You may compare this to what is running on the computer by clicking "Start," "Control Panel" and "System." This displays the hardware running on the computer.

Disconnect the Bluetooth dongle, restart the computer, then plug it back into a USB port. If you power on the computer with the dongle already instead, the system may not detect the equipment. Restarting the computer and performing this action helps correct the problem.
    • 3
Remove the Bluetooth dongle from the USB port and plug it into a different connection. Some USB ports fail to detect certain computer hardware. Changing the connection port fixes this.

Install the driver on the provided driver installation CD. Without the driver, the computer is unable to detect and use the dongle. Insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer, then follow the on-screen steps to install the driver onto the system.
