Adjusting the Aspect Ratio
You can use the Aspect button on the remote control to adjust how
projector changes to the next setting.
When Connected to Video Equipment
If you’re projecting from video equipment such as a DVD player, set
the projector’s Aspect setting to match that of the player. For
example, if the video player is set to output images at a 16:9 aspect
ratio, set the projector’s Aspect setting to 16:9 so they match. If the
player outputs images at a 4:3 aspect ratio, select 4:3 (PowerLite 1725)
or Normal (PowerLite 1735W).

Note that the projector’s native aspect ratio (XGA or WXGA,
depending on the model) is narrower than 16:9. Therefore,
widescreen movies and HDTV broadcasts will display with black bars
at the top and bottom when 16:9 is selected as the Aspect setting. For
the PowerLite 1735W, you can select Full to stretch the image

When Connected to a Computer
For computer images, Normal is usually the best setting to select.
This displays the image at the largest possible size without stretching
it. For computers with wide-panel WXGA displays, the PowerLite
1735W displays the image at WXGA resolution, making full use of
the display area; likewise, the PowerLite 1725 displays XGA images to
their best advantage.
Depending on your computer display and projector model, you may
see black bars at the edges. In that case, try selecting 4:3 (PowerLite note
If part of the image remains
1725 only) or 16:9. The PowerLite 1735W also lets you select:

the Aspect setting has now effect. Also, if you’re projecting through
your computer’s USB port, you can’t change the projector’s aspect
ratio; instead, change your computer’s resolution to match that of the
projector.

the color, brightness, and other aspects of your image. This lets you
quickly adjust the image for various uses.
