My image is blurred or out of focus. What should I do?
Try the following:
- Adjust the focus using the focus ring. Rotate the focus ring to sharpen the picture.
- There may be dirt on the lens. To remove dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper. If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
- Make sure the lens is not fogged by condensation. If you've just moved the projector from a cold environment, wait an hour before using it. If condensation forms, unplug the projector and wait an hour or two before use.
- Make sure the projector is placed the correct distance from the screen: no closer than 3 feet (0.9 meters) and no farther than 35.7 feet (10.9 meters.
- Adjust the Sharpness setting. See Adjusting Picture Quality.
- If you're using the Keystone adjustment, note that it lessens image quality. You may want to decrease the projection angle to reduce the amount of keystone correction needed. Try adjusting the projector's position relative to the screen.
- If you're using external video equipment, check Problems with External Video Equipment for additional solutions.
Caution: Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
