What should I do if I see static or noise in the image?
Check the following:
- Make sure the Input Signal is set correctly for your connected video equipment. See Other Setup Options.
- 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 your 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 displaying the same image on your laptop computer and projector screen, try turning off your laptop’s LCD display.
- If you’re using a computer cable longer than 6 feet (2 meters), or an extension cable, the image quality may be reduced.
- If you’re using a computer, keep your computer and video cables separated from the power cord as much as possible to prevent interference.
- Select the correct resolution. See Compatible Video Formats.
- If you’re projecting from a DVD player, or other video source, make sure the correct output signal is selected on the device.
