Can I view the image on my laptop or computer at the same time it is displayed on my product screen?

    If you're using a PC laptop, hold down the Fn key and press the function key that lets you display on an external monitor. It may have an icon labeled CRT/LCD. Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after pressing it. Check your laptop's manual or online help for details. On most systems, the CRT/LCD key lets you toggle between the LCD screen and the projector, or display on both at the same time. Depending on your computer's video card, you might need to use the Display utility in the Control Panel to make sure that both the LCD screen and external monitor port are enabled. See your computer's documentation or online help for details.

    If you're using a PowerBook or iBook running OS 9.x or earlier you may need to set up your system to display on the projector screen as well as the LCD screen. Do the following:
    1. From the Apple menu, select Control Panels, then click Monitors and Sound.

    2. Click the Arrange icon and drag one monitor icon on top of the other.


    If the Arrange option isn't available, you may need to select one of the Simulscan resolution settings:

    1. Click the Monitor icon, if necessary.


    2. Select a Simulscan resolution. Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after making the selection.

    If you're using a PowerBook or iBook running OS X, you may need to set up your system to display on the projector screen as well as the LCD screen. Do the following:
    1. From the Apple menu, select System Preferences, then click Displays.

    2. Select VGA Display or Color LCD, click Arrange or Arrangement, and make sure Mirror Displays is checked.
