Q:
The image is too light or dark, or colors are incorrect. What should I do?
A:
Because of the different technologies used, your projected image may not exactly match the colors on your notebook or computer monitor.

  • Press the Color Mode button on the remote control to select a different color mode. See Adjusting the Color Mode.


  • Try adjusting the brightness and color settings in the Image menu. See Adjusting the Image.


  • Try changing the Brightness Control in the Settings menu. See Customizing Projector Features.


  • Make sure the input signal setting on the Signal menu matches the signal from the connected device. See Adjusting Signal Settings.

    If the image is too purple and you’ve connected a computer or RGB video device to the Computer1 or Computer2 port, select RGB as the input source. If you’ve connected a component video device to one of these ports, select Component.

    If you’re projecting from a composite video or S-Video source, make sure the correct Video Signal is selected on the Signal menu.


  • Check your computer display settings to correct the color balance.


  • If the image seems dark, the lamp may be nearing time for replacement. Check the lamp hours and replace it, if necessary. See Replacing the Lamp.


  • In the Image menu, select Reset to change the color settings back to their defaults.
