Q:
What should I do if I see static or noise in the image?
A:
See the solutions below for the type of equipment you have connected to the projector.

Video Equipment
  • Make sure the Input Signal is set correctly for your connected video equipment. See Other Setup Options.


  • If you’re projecting from a composite or S-video source, check the Video Signal setting in the Settings menu. In most cases, leave it set to Auto. If you’re using a 60-Hz PAL video source, change this setting to PAL60. See Other Setup Options.


  • If you’re viewing still images and you notice flickering or horizontal lines, select a different option for the Progressive setting. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.


  • If you’re viewing high resolution video (720p or higher), turn on the Noise Reduction setting in the Signal menu to reduce block and mosquito noise. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.




  • Note: This setting cannot be used when the Color Mode is set to x.v. Color or with a signal input through the PC port.

  • Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.


  • If you’re using an extension cable, you may pick up interference if the cable is not adequately shielded. You may need to use a signal amplifier for longer cables.


  • Keep your video cables separated from the power cord as much as possible to prevent interference.


  • Make sure the correct output signal is selected on the video device you’re projecting from.


Computer or Laptop
  • The video signal may be split between the computer and the projector. If you notice a decline in the projected image quality when the image is displayed simultaneously on your laptop computer and the projector, turn off the laptop’s LCD display.


  • Select the correct resolution. See Compatible Video Formats.


  • Try adjusting the Sync and Tracking settings in the Signal menu. See Adjustments for Computer Images.


  • Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.


  • If you’re using a computer cable longer than 6 feet (2 meters), or an extension cable, the image quality may be reduced.


  • If you’re using an extension cable, you may pick up interference if the cable is not adequately shielded. You may need to use a signal amplifier for longer cables.


  • Keep your computer and video cables separated from the power cord as much as possible to prevent interference.
