PowerLite 826W Multimedia Projector

Selected FAQ

The image from my computer appears stretched when it’s projected. What should I do?
Try the following:

  • Press the Aspect button on the remote control to select a different setting. See Adjusting the Aspect Ratio.

  • You also may need to modify existing presentation files if you created them for a different resolution. See your software documentation for specific information.

  • Make sure your computer’s resolution setting is correct. Ideally, it should be 1280 x 800 to match the projector’s native resolution for the PowerLite 826W, or 1024 x 768 for the PowerLite 825 or 85. If this option isn’t available, select one of the other compatible video formats.

  • Check the projector’s Resolution setting. Select Normal or Wide, depending on the size of your computer’s display panel.
