    EMP-S4 projector issue with video signal

    We have an issue with one of our Epson EMP-S4 projectors.

    This takes input from either the computer or from a video recorder via a SCART/comp video adapter. On some tapes the picture does not display, and errors saying that the signal is no correct - on other tapes it plays fine.

    I've connected the video recorder directly to a telly with a SCART cable and the video plays with non problems, therefore there is not an issue playing the video on that machine. I've changed the cable to the projector and replaced the SCART/comp video adapter with a known good one from another room.

    Somehow the signal from certain video tapes is not recognized by that projector, though given that the signal is being produced by the VCR I can't work out how that could be tape-specific.

    Any ideas?

    They are all PAL and not NTSC or SECAM?

    This seems to me to be a proceses of eleimination. I would also check the tapes and also try a fully wired scart adaptor along with a high quality cable. In some schools that i have been into the quality of cables for video use are really designed for audio use, hence thinner cables of which are not designed for video signals, this will probably be where the problem lies. I always reccommend Gold video cables of which are only around £15.00 so they wont break the bank. Try this
