Adjusting the Brightness
The brightness of an image depends on the source you are projecting
and the amount of light in the room. If the image is too bright or not
bright enough, here are two ways you can adjust it:
■ Change the Brightness setting in the Image menu. See page 49.
■ Select Low or High for the Brightness Control option in the
Advanced menu. (See page 54.) Low brightness mode extends the
