Home Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite L400U

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 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 you selected the correct Video Range or EDID setting on the Signal menu, if available for your image source.
    • Make sure all the cables are securely connected to the projector and your video device. If you connected long cables, try connecting shorter cables.
    • Make sure the Brightness Settings options in the Settings menu are set correctly.
    • Position the projector close enough to the screen.
    • When using multiple projectors, make sure Light Source Calibration in the Reset menu is set correctly in all of the projectors. If light source calibration is performed only in some of the projectors, the white balance and the brightness level of the projected image may differ between the projectors.
