I see static or noise in the image. What should I do?

    Check the following:
    • Make sure the Input Signal is set correctly for your connected video equipment. See Other Setup Options.
    • If you're projecting from a composite or S-Video source, check the Video Signal setting. In most cases, leave it set to Auto. If you're using a 60-Hz PAL video source, change this setting to PAL60. See Other Setup Options.
    • If you're viewing still images, or video through the S-Video or composite inputs, and you notice flickering or horizontal lines, make sure the Progressive setting is set to Video. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.
    • Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.
    • Select the correct resolution. See Compatible Video Formats.
    • If you're projecting from a DVD player, VCR, or other video source, make sure the correct output signal is selected on the device.
    • 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 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.
    • Keep your computer and video cables separated 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.
