My image is blurred or out of focus. What should I do?
Try the following:
- Adjust the focus using the focus ring.
- Make sure the projector is placed the correct distance from the screen; no closer than 2.8 feet and no farther than 49.4 feet.
- There may be dirt on the lens. To remove dirt or smears, use lens cleaning paper to gently wipe the lens. If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with eye glass cleaning solution and gently wipe the lens surface.
Caution: Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
- Make sure the lens is not fogged by condensation. If you’ve just moved the projector from a cold environment, wait approximately one hour before using it. If condensation forms, unplug the projector and wait an hour or two before using it.
- Adjust the Sharpness setting. See Adjusting Picture Quality.
- If you’re using the Keystone adjustment, be aware that it lessens image quality. You may want to decrease the projection angle to reduce the amount of keystone correction needed. Try adjusting the projector’s position relative to the screen.
- If you’re using external video equipment, check Problems with External Video Equipment for additional solutions.
Note: You will achieve the best image quality from a Component connection followed by S-Video and then Composite. If your equipment has these connections try using them in this order.
