Selected FAQ

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

  • 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.


  • 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 are projecting from a laptop computer, try turning off simultaneous display on the laptop screen to avoid splitting the video signal.


  • Check the settings on the projector’s Signal menu to make sure they match the video source.


  • Select a computer video resolution that is compatible with the projector.


  • If you are projecting from a computer, press the Auto button on the remote control to automatically adjust the tracking and sync settings.


  • If you adjusted the image shape using the projector controls, try decreasing the Sharpness setting to improve image quality.
