What should I do if I see static or noise in the image?
Try the following:
- 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 notebook computer and the projector, turn off the notebook's LCD display.
- Make sure the correct input signal is selected in the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings.
- If you're using a composite, S-Video, or component video source with 480i signals, turn on the Progressive setting on the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings.
- If you've used the Keystone adjustment, you may need to decrease the Sharpness setting in the Image menu. See Adjusting the Image.
- If you're projecting from a computer, make sure its signal is compatible with the projector.
If you're projecting from a computer, press the Auto button on the remote control to reset the projector's Tracking, Sync, and Position settings.
You must be projecting an image for the Auto button to have any effect. It works only with computer images projected through the Computer (Component Video) port.
