Troubleshooting
Before asking to have the projector repaired, try to diagnose the problem, following the
instructions below.
SymptomRemedy
The power is not turned on.Check if the AC power cord is firmly connected.When the “Panel Key Lock” is set to “On,” you cannot turn on the projector using the ?/1 key on the projector.If the air filter cover or air filter unit is not attached securely, the projector cannot be turned on.
No image.Check if the connecting cable is connected to external equipment properly. Check if the computer signal is set for output to an external monitor. If you set your computer, such as a notebook computer, to output the signal to both your computer’s display and an external monitor, the picture of the external monitor may not appear properly. Set your computer to output the signal to only an external monitor. Check if the input source is correctly selected. Check if the picture is muted. During “Zone Black Level Adj.” adjustment, a black image is automatically projected.
On-screen display does not appear.The on-screen display does not appear when “Status” in the Operation menu is set to “Off.”
The aspect ratio of the display is not right/the image is displayed smaller /a portion of image does not appear. The image may not be displayed correctly with an input signal the projector cannot interpret correctly. In such a case, set “Aspect” manually. Check if “Screen Aspect” is correctly selected.
The image is a trapezoid.The images become trapezoidal because of the projection angle. In such a case, you can correct the trapezoidal distortion, using a Keystone feature.
The image is distorted.Warping is set. Disable the warp correction feature.
The image is dark/too bright.The settings for “Brightness,” “Contrast,” and “Light Output Mode” affect brightness of the image. Check if the value is appropriate. The image will be dark when the light source is burnt out. Check “Light Timer,” and consult with qualified Sony personnel. “With Static Signal” is set to “On.” When video signal is not input, the light is dimmed to reduce power consumption. When the temperature around the unit is high, the brightness will be reduced to protect the unit.
SymptomRemedy
The image is not clear.Check if the projector is in focus.The picture will not be clear if condensation has accumulated on the lens. In such a case, let the projector sit for about two hours with the power on.
The image is noisy.Check if the connecting cable is connected to external equipment properly.
No sound.Check that the connecting cables between the projector and external video or audio equipment are securely connected. Check if the output setting of connected external audio equipment is set for output the audio signal from the projector.Check if the “Audio Output Vol.” is set to minimum.
The Remote Commander does not work.Check that the batteries are installed correctly. Check that the batteries are not exhausted. Check if the “ID Mode” of the projector corresponds to that of the Remote Commander. Check the setting for “IR Receiver.”
The fan is noisy.The sound from the fan is often greater than normal to cool the light source in the following cases. • When “Light Output Mode” is set to “High.” • The projector is in at high altitude (“High Altitude Mode” is set to “On”) • Temperature is very high. • Air filter is blocked. If the ventilation holes are blocked, the internal temperature of the projector rises and the fan noise becomes larger.
Cannot adjust the keystone setting.Disable the Edge Blending setting. Select “HV Keystone” in “Screen Fitting.”
Cannot adjust the Warp setting.Disable the Edge Blending setting. Select “Warping” in “Screen Fitting.”
