No image using an LCD panel with my overhead projector

Problem: My portable overhead projector works fine with transparencies but when I put my LCD panel on the unit I don't get any image at all.

Solution: You may be using a "reflective" style overhead projector. LCD panels must be used with "transmissive" overhead projectors. Transmissive overheads have the light source below the stage glass where the panel is placed. If your overhead has a lamp in the head (the top part which moves for focusing), you have the wrong type of projector and will need a different one to use your LCD panel.
