Home Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema 4040

The image is too dark or light, or the colors are incorrect. What should I do?

    If the projected image is too dark or light, or the colors are incorrect, try the following solutions:

    • Press the Color Mode button on the remote control to try different color modes for the image and environment.
    • Check your video source settings.
    • Adjust the available settings on the Image menu for the current input source, such as Brightness, Contrast, Tint, Advanced, and Color Saturation.
    • Turn off the HDR mode in the Dynamic Range setting or set the Color Space setting to BT.709.
    • Make sure all the cables are securely connected to the projector and your video device. If you connected long cables, try connecting shorter cables.
    • Position the projector close enough to the screen.
    • If the image has been progressively darkening, you may need to replace the projector lamp soon.
