Home Support Projectors LightScene Series Epson LightScene EV-100

Vertical bands, static, or noise appear in the image. What should I do?

    If the projected image seems to contain electronic interference (noise) or static, try the following solutions:

    • 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
    • Make sure the SD card is inserted correctly.
    • Check the settings on the projector's Signal menu to make sure they match the video source.
    • Select a computer video resolution and refresh rate that are compatible with the projector.
