PC image onto projector slightly to big, advise please


Standard Member
As the title states, using the pc connected to both the local monitor and a Panasonic ax100 via vga through a vga amplifier to boost the signal over the extra length of cable (the type used in lecture theatres), picture quality is now good since the amplifier is used but can't seem to get the the correct size image on the projector, the image is just slightly too wide and too deep chopping off the task bar and half the width of the first row of desktop icons.

Tried using powerstrip as i thought i had read this would help but don't know what iam doing with it to be honest. Resolution is at 1024x768.

Advice appreciated :lease:

Has the projector got Digital zoom? or compression/keystone features?
Usually, you can use the digital zoom to compress the image from top to bottom and side to side within the PJ's menu.

Alternatively, you may be able to adjust the PC's image output. Try manually setting the screen/image resolution (eg: 1280 x 1024 = Change to 1280 x 994 or similar)

The major option would be to buy/create a screen to fit the PJ's image.

If none of these are possible, highlight the top of your desktop bar and drag it up into the screen area.

Hope this helps?
