How To Connect RCA Projector To iPhone | Step-By-Step Guide

Most RCA projector users are continually on the search for information about connecting their projectors to their iPhones. Well, look no further because you’ve found the solution.

Apple devices are growing in popularity every year and one of these popular devices is the iPhone. The iPhone is one of the most popular smartphones in the world and it’s definitely the most popular in the US where it has a 47.7% market share. If you have an iPhone and you want to connect it to a projector, then here is a step-by-step guide on how to connect RCA projector to iPhone.

How To Connect RCA Projector To iPhone (Wirelessly):

Step. 1

The very first thing you need to do is turn on your projector and make sure you select the wireless projection option. This will allow you to connect your iPhone wirelessly with your RCA projector.

Step. 2

Once you have your projector on and in wireless projection mode, press the button with the image of a signal on your remote control. This is probably going to look like an open casing when pressed or a signal icon when selected.

Step. 3

By choosing “Device” you can control the device from which you want to project. You can choose from “iPhone,” “Computer,” or even an option for “Unknown Device.” Selecting “Wi-Fi Name” will pull up a list of available Wi-Fi networks, allowing you to select which one to project through.

Step. 4

Projectors are just like iPhones – but stronger and projecting visuals to a wall. If you’re using an iPhone, then you have your own projector at the ready in your hands. To connect it to your project, locate the “Wi-Fi signal” on your iPhone, and select the same Wi-Fi signal as that of the projector you’re planning to use.

Step. 5

If you have an iPhone, it is possible to use it as a wireless receiver for your PowerPoint presentation. Connect your iPhone to the same Wi-Fi network as the one your projector is connected to, then open the Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of your screen. From there, select AirPlay Mirroring so that both devices will be ready to pair together.

Step. 6

Apple TV offers exciting possibilities for the classroom, so we are constantly working on making it better for educators. Now you can check out the running time of your movies right within the AirPlay Mirroring menu with a convenient new overlay icon designed to show you at a glance how much longer you have to play.

Step. 7

Now that your RCA projector is connected to your iPhone, it’s time to start watching some videos. Simply open a multimedia app like YouTube or Netflix and pick out a video you want to watch, and the big screen will display it in great quality.

How To Connect RCA Projector To iPhone Using Cable:

Connecting your iPhone to a projector may require some minor leg-work, but it’s certainly worth it in the end. Every projector has a standard video connector or cable of some sort that allows you to connect it to your laptop, tablet, or phone and project whatever is currently on the device onto a screen. In this instance, since the iPhone lacks a standard video port, you will need an adapter to enable communication between the two devices.

This adapter connects to the bottom of an iPhone and VGA cables. With this 2-in-1 adapter, you can connect an iPhone to a monitor using either an HDMI or VGA cable.

If you don’t regularly use the same projectors, buy an extra cable so that you can have a backup. Either VGA or HDMI should work, but make sure to check what connector your project needs before purchasing two cables of the same type (you wouldn’t want to get caught out in the middle of presenting with no way of showing your presentation).

If you’re always on the go, making sure you have a VGA cable is a good idea because not every meeting space or presentation room has HDMI ports. It makes sense to be prepared for any situation and know exactly when your presentation space lacks the type of port that can accommodate your computer’s output.

When Your RCA Projector Not Connecting To iPhone:

If you are having trouble connecting your iOS device to the RCA projector by wire or wirelessly, try the following solutions:

1. Fix Audio

If you’re using a portable projector screen, you must connect it to a laptop computer or a tablet device. Standard projectors require either VGA or an HDMI cable to connect to your laptop or tablet. You’ll need something like the Digital A/V Adapter mentioned above if you don’t have HDMI connectivity on your laptop or tablet and plan on using a projector screen. If you do have built-in speakers on your smartphone, they should work fine with the model of Digital A/V Adapter we carry here.

2. Fix Connections

The very first thing you should do when you have connectivity problems is to check your cables, reset your router/modem or try using a new connection until it finally works. If the problem persists and it’s your app that isn’t showing you any video or playing audio then the app may not be compatible with your device. Go to the app store, Google information about the app or contact the developer directly to check the compatibility of its application.

How to connect my phone to my RCA projector using USB?

If your projector is up to date, it should come equipped with a Type C connector. This connector will allow you to connect both the cable and the receiver for mirroring your phone’s screen. Place both ends of the receiver into their respective ports on the projector, switch its input channel to USB-C and you’re good to go.

Is it possible to mirror iPhone to a projector?

Use the Lightning Digital AV adapter to connect iOS devices to any HDMI projector or TV. If you are using a projector, and it does not have an HDMI input available, check out our Flip for Business app.

It has the ability to mirror your iPhone or iPad’s screen wirelessly when connected through an Airplay-enabled device like Apple TV (Airplay) or a projector equipped with Miracast™ technology. Or, consider purchasing one of our AirBeam Receivers™ which will extend your network and allow you to wirelessly project an image up to 300 feet from any room in your building.

Why RCA projector is not working?

Make sure the circuit breaker on your RCA home theatre system hasn’t tripped. If you reset the breaker and nothing has changed, it is important to move on to the next possible steps. One of these could be that there is a problem with your home’s AC outlet or even at the input for your RCA home theatre system. You can try switching out another input or connecting another device externally to see if something else is causing interference.
