Question about Dell 1100MP DLP Projector Multimedia Projector

3 Answers

Why is my projection dark and muddy compared to the brightness on my computer screen?

I've just started using this projector and I'm no expert at it. I created a movie with iMovie (on my Mac), connected my Mac to this projector via VGA cable and adaptor for mac, and projected it in a darkened room about 10-12 feet from the projector onto a projection screen. The images on the screen were very dark and muddy. The images on my computer screen were bright and clear. Switching to another Dell projector (a friend's), it all worked fine. Seems this projector has been fine in the past. I loaned the projector to other novices recently. What can I do to maximize the brightness and sharpness with what I described above? Thanks! gadee

A lot of these problems aren't worth the cost to fix. If you havent fixed the problem I may be interested in buying your broken projector from you as a parts machine.

Email me at: nalexandrov251[A-T]gmail.com and we might be abe to work something out.

John here, customer advocate at Dell headquarters. If you can nvigate to the On Screen Display Menu, you should see an "all images" section on the main menu. There you will find brightness, contrast, color temp, white intensity, and gamma controls. You should be able to make adjustments from that menu to sharpen and brighten the image.
