Dot grid pattern on projector


Novice Member
Hi all, looking for help in fixing my epson powerlite home cinema 1440. Turned it on this morning(was working fine last night)and it’s displaying a grid pattern of four dots in lines across the screen. Tried the obvious on/off, then I reset the projector, switched hdmi cables, hdmi ports, even hooked up my Nintendo 64 with video cables. Nothing has worked.
I spoke with epson and they said it’s an HDMI port issue, but I don’t believe it since it happens with video input also.
Any ideas?

Any ideas
Looks just like this post, one of the fixes seemed to be reseating cables internally

I just had the same problem tonight, Epson 2030. Took the thing apart, reseated the ribbon cables, and yes it worked for me.

Thanks for the info, y'all.
