Home Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema 4040

Part of my image is blurry or out of focus. What should I do?

    If the projected image is fuzzy or blurry, try the following solutions:

    • Adjust the image focus.
    • Clean the projector lens.
    • Check the lens for condensation.

      Note: To avoid condensation on the lens after bringing the projector in from a cold environment, let the projector warm up to room temperature before using it.

    • Position the projector close enough to the screen, and directly in front of it.
    • Position the projector so the keystone adjustment angle is not so wide that it distorts the image.
    • Adjust the Sharpness setting to improve image quality.
    • If you are projecting from a computer, display a uniformly patterned image on the screen and adjust the Tracking and Sync settings.
    • If you are projecting from a computer, use a lower resolution.
    • Check the resolution of your video source. If you are projecting from a standard definition video source, your image will not be as clear as an HD (720p/1080i/1080p) video source.
