I see static or noise in the image. What should I do?
Check the following:
- If you're using a computer cable longer than 6 feet (2 meters), or an extension cable, the image quality may be reduced.
- 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.
- If you're projecting from a composite or S-Video source, check the Video Signal setting in the Signal menu. In most cases, leave it set to Auto. If you're using a 60-Hz PAL video source, change this setting to PAL60. Also make sure the Progressive setting is On. See Adjusting the Input Signal.
- Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.
- Select the correct resolution. See Compatible Video Formats.
- If you're projecting from a computer, press the Enter/Auto button on the remote control or the Enter button on the projector to adjust tracking and sync automatically. If that doesn't work, try adjusting the Sync and Tracking settings in the Signal menu. See Adjusting the Input Signal.
