Nothing projects on the screen. What should I do?

    If no image appears, try the following solutions:

    • Press the A/V Mute button on the remote control to see if the image was temporarily turned off.
    • Make sure all necessary cables are securely connected and the power is on for the projector and connected video sources.
    • Press the projector's power button to wake it from standby or sleep mode. Also see if your connected computer is in sleep mode or displaying a blank screen saver.
    • Adjust the Brightness setting on the Image menu.
    • Select the Normal Power Consumption setting.
    • Check the Display menu to make sure the Messages setting is set to On.
    • For images projected with Windows Media Center, reduce the screen size from full screen mode.
    • For images projected from applications using Windows DirectX, turn off DirectX functions.
    • The projector may not be able to project copyrighted videos that you play back on a computer. For details, see the manual supplied with your computer.
    • If the other solutions do not solve the problem, reset all of the projector settings using the options on the Reset menu.
