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 the Color Space and Dynamic Range settings in the Signal menu and make sure they match the input signal. Select Auto for each setting.
    • 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.
    • Make sure all the cables are securely connected to the projector and your video device. If you connected long cables, try connecting shorter cables.
    • If you are using the ECO Power Consumption setting, try selecting High in the projector's menus.
    • Position the projector close enough to the screen.
    • If the image has been progressively darkening, you may need to replace the projector lamp soon.
