What should I do if I see static or noise in the image?
Check the following:

  • Check the settings in the Input Signal menu to make sure they match your video equipment. See Customizing Projector Features for details.

  • If you’re viewing still images and you notice flickering or horizontal lines, turn on the Progressive setting. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • If you’re projecting from a DVD player, VCR, or other video source, make sure the correct output signal is selected on the device.
