    I'm trying to use my MacBook with an Eiki projector. We have 2 Eiki projectors at my church. One is model Eiki LC-XB42 and it works perfect. When I plug it in my MacBook screen blinks then comes back on with different dimensions but it is showing through the projector. Perfect for me.

    But when I plug into the other projector, Eiki LC-XB28, it doesn't work. My screen blinks but comes back exactly as it was and the projector keeps saying no input or whatever.

    I've checked the settings on the projector to make sure I have the right one selected, etc. When I check settings on my MB it doesn't show anything helpful in the displays preferences window.

    Please help! Thanks :)

    Are they both using the same adaptor and cable? Try swapping the cables from one projector to another and see if it works, because you might have a bad cable (or incompatible)
