6 Steps – How To Connect A PS4 To A Projector Using HDMI
Step No. 1: Unplug Both Devices
Many people don’t consider it an important step, but it actually is. Before connecting any device to the other, you have to unplug its power cable. We recommend unplugging the devices rather than just switching off their power button. It keeps you on a much safer side from taking any earthen shocks.
Step No. 2: Connect The HDMI Cable
Take an HDMI cable. Make sure you buy a new one of high quality so you don’t face image quality issues later. Now, connect one end of the cable with the projector and the other one with your PS4. Remember that you have to use an additional adapter for connecting a mini projector to your PS4.
Step No. 3: Turn On The Projector First
Does it matter to turn on the projector first? Yes, it is important because many projectors take time to turn on and off. Gaming consoles usually take less time to boot because they are optimized for high performance. So, turn on your projector first before turning on your PS4.
Step No. 4: It Is Time For The PS4
Now, turn on your PS4. Do you see the output on the projector screen? Not so fast because there are a few more steps to make things work. Let your devices turn on completely before moving on to the next step.
Step No. 5: Finish Settings In Your Projector
Open the settings of your projector using buttons (or remote if it has). Look for the Input/Source menu and open it. There, you will see many connectivity options. Select HDMI (or in some projectors HDMI1) to set the input to HDMI.
Step No. 6: Start Playing
After Step No. 5, you will see the contents of your PS4 on the projector screen. Now, run your favorite game and enjoy it on your big projector screen.
