Solutions When the Image Brightness or Colors are Incorrect

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, Color Adjustment, and/or Color Saturation.
  • Make sure you selected the correct Input Signal or Video Signal 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.
  • If you are using the ECO Power Consumption setting, try selecting Normal in the projector's menus.
    Note: At high altitudes or locations subject to high temperatures, the image may become darker and you may not be able to adjust the Power Consumption setting.
  • Position the projector close enough to the screen.
  • If the image has been progressively darkening, you may need to replace the projector lamp soon.
