PowerLite 85 Multimedia Projector

Selected FAQ

What should I do if only part of the picture is displayed or the image looks distorted?
Check the following:

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

  • If projecting from a computer, press the Auto button on the remote control. Also make sure the image Position setting is correct in the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings.

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

  • Make sure your computer is not set to display an extended desktop or dual display.

  • Press the Esc button on the remote control to cancel the E-Zoom function.

  • 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. See Compatible Video Formats.

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