Question about NEC VT575 Multimedia Projector
Neither the s video or component video inputs are working on my NEC VT575 projector. Is there a menu setting I need to change? What else could be causing it? Both computer inputs are working
Normally in most laptops, you need to press a combination of keys to activate the external video outputs (such as your S-Video and/or the analog/vga/composite. It would be Fn + F? depending on the brand/model.
In desktop PCs, you need to activate the second monitor or TV out in your Display properties.
In your NEC VT575, you need to select the source manually if the auto source detect does not work.
In some cases, the PC's output whether S-Video or Composite would be detected by a projector but would still fail to display on the projector's screen. The reason is the PC's Screen resolution is higher than what the projector can handle. You need to lower the said Screen resolution in the PC's Desktop Properties/Settings. The NEC VT575 can handle max 1024 X 768 but would suggest you try lower settings first in your PC and gradually work the resolution upwards till it blanks out.
In some instances, the projector simply fails to detect incoming video signals and the only solution is to wait till autodetected. At times it is really a projector's fault. it may be necessary to send the unit in for service/upgrade of firmware or hardware fault diagnosis/repairs.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. It would be of help if you can likewise post brand/models of the PCs that would be used.
Good luck and kind regards.

You mustn't have them plugged in. So try pulling them out then plugging them in. If this doesn't work you will probably need new cords. When buying the cords keep receipt in case you need to get a refund because it was'nt the problem. Also make sure they are plugged inthe right spot!
Hope this helps - Josh
