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 and Mosquito NR settings 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.
