Vertical bands, static, or noise appear in the image. What should I do?
- Check the cables connecting your computer or video source to the projector. They should be:
- Separated from the power cord to prevent interference
- Securely connected at both ends
- Not connected to an extension cable
- No longer than 10 feet (3 m) for VGA/computer cables or 24 feet (7.3 m) for HDMI cables
- Check the settings on the projector's Signal menu to make sure they match the video source. If available for your video source, adjust the Noise Reduction setting.
- Select a computer video resolution and refresh rate that are compatible with the projector.
- If you are projecting from a computer using a VGA cable, press the Auto button on the remote control to automatically adjust the tracking and sync. If the problem remains, display a uniformly patterned image on the screen and manually adjust the Tracking and Sync settings.
- If you connected an extension power cable, try projecting without it to see if it caused interference in the signal.
If the projected image seems to contain electronic interference (noise) or static, try the following solutions:
Image Quality Settings - Image Menu
Input Signal Settings - Signal Menu
Supported Video Display Formats
