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:

    • Check the Color Space and Dynamic Range settings in the Signal menu and make sure they match the input signal. Select Auto for each setting.
    • Try selecting a color mode that best fits 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, White Balance, and/or Color Saturation.
    • Make sure you selected the correct Video Range or EDID setting on the Signal menu, if available for your image source.
    • Make sure all the cables are securely connected to the projector and your video device. If you connected long cables, try connecting shorter cables.
    • Make sure the Light Output setting in the Image menu is set correctly.
    • Position the projector close enough to the screen.
    • If the above solutions do not correct your image, try resetting all of the projector's settings using the Reset menu.
