I see static or noise in the image. What should I do?

    Check the following:
    • If you're using a computer cable longer than 6 feet (1.8 meters), or an extension cable, the image quality may be reduced.
    • Keep your computer and video cables separated from the power cord as much as possible to prevent interference.
    • If you're using an extension cable, you may pick up interference if the cable is not adequately shielded. You may need to use a signal amplifier for longer cables.
    • The video signal may be split between the computer and the projector. If you notice a decline in the projected image quality when the image is displayed simultaneously on your laptop computer and the projector, turn off the laptop's LCD display.
    • Make sure the correct input signal is selected in the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings for details.
    • If you're projecting from a composite, S-Video, or component video source with 480i signals, turn on the Progressive setting in the Signal menu. See Adjusting Signal Settings.
    • Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.
    • If you're projecting from a computer, make sure its signal is compatible with the projector. See Compatible Video Formats.
    • If you've used the Keystone adjustment, you may need to decrease the Sharpness setting in the Image menu. See Adjusting the Image.
    • If you're projecting from a computer, press the Auto button on the remote control to reset the projector's Tracking, Sync, and Position settings.
