Hi, I have a mac book pro and a samsung pico h03 projector and can't make them work together. I connected the projector with a vga adaptor to the mac and can see on the wall only a blue window. With a notebook I can immediately see the desktop projected on the wall. Anyone could help me?

Does your MacBook Pro properly detect the Pico? In other words, can you open System Preference, Displays, and click on the tab "detect displays" and see your Pico?

hi, it seems that it recognise it (because of the blue screen i see on the wall) but i couldnt see in detect display.
May it be a problem with drivers i need to download? I read on other forum that the pico should work with the pico.
thanks, i hope that with my delay you will see my answear.

What adapter are you using? If you're using the mini displayport to VGA adapter from Apple - Apple released a firmware update for this adapter - while you have everything plugged in and turned on, try using Software Update to see if your adapter requires that update.

When you use the Detect Display button, you do not see a 2nd window for the Pico? Try moving the first window to see if it's hiding behind it.

While it's all connected and running, is there an Appearance tab in the Displays preference window?
If there is, put a check in the Mirror Displays box at the bottom.
If there is already a check, remove it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
