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
    • Adjust the Noise Reduction setting in the projector's Picture menu.
    • Select a computer video resolution and refresh rate that are compatible with the projector.
    • If you adjusted the image shape using the projector controls, try decreasing the Sharpness setting in the Picture menu to improve image quality.
    • Make sure you selected the correct EDID setting in the projector's Picture menu.
    • If you connected an extension power cable, try projecting without it to see if it caused interference in the signal.
    • Try turning on Frame Interpolation in the Picture menu.
