    Projector

    Hi all

    I have a problem with a view sonic pjd6221, when you try to power up the projector the blue light comes on but nothing shows on the screen, I have checked the blub in another projector and it works fine.

    Does anyone have any ideas why the projector is not displaying anything?

    Thanks for all your replies

    Has your laptop/computer detected the projector and vice-verse?

    So you get no menu options when you select it from the remote?

    Do you have any options at all on the remote for menu's?
    If you are using Vista or W7 you could try typing in 'Connect to external display' in the search box to see if the projector is being picked up by the computer.

    Hmm. Are you trying to connect to it over LAN or VGA?

    OK, what you need to do is to see if Windows detects the projector. Plug it in and run the 'Connect to an external display' wizard. Can you see the projector listed besides the laptop display (you should see a second screen shown)?
    I have included a screen grab of more than one display being listed on my office computer as an example.

    Oh, and I would try powering down the projector before connecting (ensuring the laptop is switched on and fully booted) and then start it up.

    perhaps the lamp ballast has gone, it may not show any symptom but it won't strike the lamp.

    this may be a call for @Marc engineer

    OK, you need to click on the second display labelled '2', and if possible check 'Make this my primary display' then click 'Apply'. As you are using XP it can be a little tricky to sometimes convince it to use another display.

    oaktech is the lamp ballast some inside the projector or on the bulb itself? i have used a different bulb in this projector that i know works.

    Dos_Box i have clicked on the second display and set it to primary but all that happens is the screen goes blank and i get nothing at all.
