What should I do if I see static or noise in the image?
If the projected image seems to contain electronic interference (noise) or static, try the following solutions:
- Check the cables connecting your computer or video source to the projector. They should be:
- Separated from the power cord to prevent interference
- Securely connected at both ends
- No longer then 9.8 feet (3 m)
- Not connected to an extension cable
- 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. If available for your video source, adjust the Progressive and Noise Reduction settings. See Input Signal Settings.
- Select a computer video resolution that is compatible with the projector. See Supported Video Display Formats.
- If you are projecting from a computer, press the Auto button on the remote control to automatically adjust tracking and sync settings.
- If you adjusted the image shape using the projector controls, try decreasing the Sharpness setting to improve image quality.
- If you connected an extension cable, try projecting without it to see if it caused interference in the signal.
