Projector output is blurry or incorrect

 In

My projector output is blurry or incorrect. What can I do to resolve the issue?

  • Try to adjust the focus using the buttons on the projector or projector remote control
  • Check the cable coming from your computer to ensure it is going straight to the projector (or wall port for the projector).
    • If there is a “Y” splitter that both the projector and your classroom computer monitor connect to before plugging into the computer, it can cause blurry images.
      • You can carefully remove the splitter and attach the projector directly to the PC to see if the problem disappears.
        • Make sure the connector pins on the projector cable match the socket on the computer before attempting this.
        • If they are a different style, STOP and contact your Site Based Technician!
      • Some document scanners pass the video connection through it before it goes to the projector.
        • This can be removed and the projector connected directly to your computer for testing purposes.
          • Make sure the connector pins on the projector cable match the socket on the computer before attempting this.
          • If they are a different style, STOP and contact your Site Based Technician!
      • Some older Dell computers only had one Video-Out connector with these splitters and were designed to be connected this way from the factory. They carried the signals from 2 ports across one cable and didn’t actually “split” it.
      • Newer computers should have each display device connected to a seperate video port on the computer.
  • Contact your SBT, a repair request may need to be created in the Famis (replacement for Maximo) system.
  • Contact your office staff, a repair request may need to be created in the FAMIS system.
