Question about Polaroid Polaview 211E Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Vertical control of viewing frame needs adjustment.

Our LCD projector projects an image of the desktop with the top half of the screen at the bottom and the bottom half on the top. I have tried the menu adjustments...but nothing is correcting the problem. I am using the LCD projector with an Apple G4 laptop with correct connections. It has worked in the past...but just started messing up recently. How can I correct this adjustment?

Re: Vertical control of viewing frame needs adjustment.

Did you try going into MENU --> PICTURE --> SIGNAL MODE, and then pressing > to go through all the signal modes? On mine, most of the signal modes split the screen weirdly as you described, but one of them (in my case XGA3, but I'm not using a Mac) looks right.

I have problem with christie projector roadster x9

If your's is the "s" model there is no keystone adjustment provided. Otherwise the keystone adjustment is found under MENU then 1, Size and Position and under MENU 2, Image Settings. Also, refer to this excerpt from the manual:
NOTE: This function is not available in "S" models.
Adjust the keystone control if images appears non-rectangular or keystoned in shape-that is, smaller at either the top or bottom edge. The effect of keystone adjustment is similar to
physically tilting the projector forward or backward in relation to the screen, and it affects all sources.
NOTES: 1) Keystone is enabled for a source only if Size is 1000 and Size x Vertical Stretch is 1,000,000.
2) Keystone adjustment is not available in "S"
models. 3) Avoid using Keystone with Blanking.

In projector menu you will find a setting called 'keystone correction'. Use horizontal and vertical keystone correction to correct the projected image.

Half inch crystal/ solid white vertical line on screen

Adjust the horizontal in the menu then try the overscan adjustment. If the image does not look dim you do not need a lamp.

The image from my cp x251 is uneven the top and right side are angled but the bottom and left side are straight and perfect on the screen.

this is a common problem with projection systems this is the reason that most screens are lined with black felt its non-reflective and works great to hide uneven edges also try balancing out the difference with the keystone adjustment

Screen adjustment

Adjust the screen area of the computer’s display settings to match the projector’s native resolution. Refer to your projector documentation for the optimum or native-resolution setting for your projector model. If you can't find this information or are uncertain, most projectors support a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels.
• With certain laptops, you might need to disable the laptop display to obtain the best image, especially when the native resolution of the laptop exceeds the native resolution of the projector.
• Font smoothing will automatically generate a cleaner font outline, both on your laptop and on the projector. To apply font smoothing, do the following:
In Control Panel, open Display.
On the Appearance tab, click the Effects button.
In the Effects dialog box, select the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts check box, and then select Standard or ClearType in the list.

If the projected image is dimmer than it was on the laptop, check your projector documentation for information regarding lamp timers. If the lamp life has expired, replace the lamp for maximum brightness.
If the projected image is not rectangular, try one or both of the following:
• Make sure that the projector is perpendicular to the viewing screen.
• Raise or lower the projector.
If the projected image displays vertical lines, "bleeding," or spots, try one or more of the following:
• Adjust the brightness of the image.
• Check the projector lens to see whether it needs cleaning.
• Adjust the sync and tracking on the projector.
