Home Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8500 UB

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

    Check the following:
    • Check the settings in the Input Signal menu to make sure they match your video equipment. See Customizing Projector Features for details.
    • If you're viewing still images and you notice flickering or horizontal lines, turn on the Progressive setting. See Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings.
    • Make sure the cables are securely connected at both ends.
    • 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.
    • If you're using a computer cable longer than 6 feet (2 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.
    • 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.
    • Select the correct resolution. See Compatible Video Formats.
    • If you're projecting from a DVD player, VCR, or other video source, make sure the correct output signal is selected on the device.
