    Hello,

    is there a way to enter the service mode for the Hewlett-Packard
    projector vp6100?
    If so, how do I enter it?

    The projector has the following error: It searches for a signal on all
    inputs when connected to a computer (Laptop, PC, Mac, I tried them
    all). For the glimpse of a moment you can see a picture, but for some
    reason it then continues searching. When I switch to manual selection
    of the input device, it doesn't find an input signal at all.
    I also tried different cables, different resolutions/frequencies and
    different inputs (S-VHS, VGS...) with the same result.
    I hoped that there is an entry in the service menu which sets back
    this behaviour.
    If not, what do you think: Is it a software misbehaviour or a hardware
    fault? If it is a software misbehaviour, how can i "reset" the
    software???

    Forgot do mention: I already tried "Set back menues" and "Set back
    lamp". Doesn't work.

    I don't know exactly for the model you have, but I can suggest generically
    from servicing these types of units. This may be a failure on the input
    processor board in the projector. The procedure is to swap out the board to
    verify this. If so, then leave the good board in the unit, and dispose of
    the old one.

    Many of these devices do not have an internal way to enter the service mode.
    They use an external PC interface with the manufacture software to get in to
    the service mode. It is very rare that the service mode is required. When a
    fault occurs it is usually a failed component. Service on these units is
    done by board exchange. There is very little component level service
    supported with these devices.

    OK. Thanks you for your reply. Then I will wait for a broken one on
    ebay to exchange the faulty component/board.
