11.2   What to do when Projector Won't Display

From David Hunter, Tue Sep 6 12:12:53 2005

UCs -- Next time you find that the projector is not displaying an image please do the following:

  1. Check that the computer is running properly (powered up and the display is working).
  2. Check that the proper input on the projector is selected. In the case of Weir 128 you need to make sure that it is set to Input 1 AND analog.
  3. Power cycle the projector via the off button on the remote.
  4. Cycle the KVM a couple of times.
  5. Shut down the computer then power off its UPS. Wait 10 seconds and then start things back up.
  6. Turn off the projector with the remote and wait for the fan to turn off (if you don't you may damage the lamp). Then, if you can reach the power switch (the actual flip switch, not the button) on the back of the projector or the power cord then unplug or switch it off, wait 10 seconds, then power it back on. The projector normally just "sleeps" when you turn it off; this does a hard reset.
  7. If it still does not work then there is nothing else that you can do.

Note: You can, of course, stop going through the above procedure if the projector starts working.
