Do you have anything on the projectors display or is it blank?

It is blue. Would it be easier to call me? I can give you my number. I have a Mac OS X 10.5.8 system.

If you move the mouse off the side of your main monitor does it show up on the projectors screen?


Thanks

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No.
Expert:  Claws224 replied 7 years ago.

Ok,

 

Int at case can you click the apple icon then open System preferences and then open Displays and let me know if the Projector is shown as an option?

 

If so can you see if it will allow you to enable to projector as a second monitor.

 

Let me know


Thanks

there is no option for projector. I changed the display to 800x600 stretched. BUt I can't figure out how to mirror what's on my monitor to the projector
Expert:  Claws224 replied 7 years ago.

Ok,

 

When you get the displays menu open can you hit detect displays and let me know if anything appears on the projector as you should get a display settings window on it and you should see an arraingement dialogue on your iMacs screen so you can choose how to lay out the displays.

 

Let me know what happens.

Thanks

Eric
