What should I do if I see static or noise in the image?
Check the following:
- Make sure the cables are securely connected.
- If you're using a computer cable longer than 6 feet (1.8 meters), or an extension cable, the image quality may be reduced.
- Keep your computer and video cables away 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.
- Make sure the correct input signal is selected in the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings for details.
- If you've used the Quick Corner or Keystone adjustment, you may need to decrease the Sharpness setting in the Image menu. See Adjusting the Image for details.
- If you're projecting from a computer, make sure its signal is compatible with the projector. See Compatible Video Formats.
- Press the Auto button on the remote control or the Enter button on the projector to reset the projector's Tracking, Sync, and Position settings. If further adjustment is needed, you can fine-tune the Sync and Tracking settings manually using the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings.
