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

  • See the solutions below for the type of equipment you have connected to the projector.

    Video Equipment
    • 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 the Settings menu. 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 and you notice flickering or horizontal lines, select a different option for the Progressive setting. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.
    • If you're viewing high resolution video (720p or higher), turn on the Noise Reduction setting in the Signal menu to reduce block and mosquito noise. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.

      Note: This setting cannot be used when the Color Mode is set to x.v. Color or with a signal input through the PC port.
    • Make sure the 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.
    • Keep your video cables separated from the power cord as much as possible to prevent interference.
    • Make sure the correct output signal is selected on the video device you're projecting from.
    Computer or Laptop
    • 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.
    • Select the correct resolution. See Compatible Video Formats.
    • Try adjusting the Sync and Tracking settings in the Signal menu. See Adjustments for Computer Images.
    • Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.
    • 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.
