I am not at the church where the projector is located. Would I need to be at that location to talk about problem on phone?
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 4 months ago

It would help, but isn't strictly necessary.

I'm not concerned about a setting issue, just more wanting to know if you can still pull up the setting/menu screens or not.

If so, then what is the source/content you're connected to where you get a blue screen?

I'm connecting with my disktop computer and it is running windows 10. The program I am using is easyworship.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 4 months ago

Do you have something else you could connect to the pj, even just temporarily, to test, such as a dvd player, cable/satellite box, etc?
