What should I do if I see the message No Signal?
The projector has an on-screen help system you can use to solve this problem. If the on-screen help does not solve the problem, try the following solutions:
- Press the Source Search button and wait a few seconds for an image to appear.
- Turn on the connected computer or video source, and press its play button to begin your presentation, if necessary.
- Check the connection from the projector to your video sources.
- If you are projecting from a laptop computer, make sure it is set up to display on an external monitor.
- If necessary, turn the projector and the conected computer or video source off and then on again.
