Question about Optoma H56 Multimedia Projector

3 Answers

Screen Display I instaled this unit in the ceiling yesterday and adjusted the size to fit the full screen, I removed the unit and ran the wires in a more permanent way and reinstalled. Now i cannot get the projector image to fill my scree. I have tried 4:3, 16:9, letter box, and one other. I believe the problem is with the computer as my son hooked it up to a tv while i was making the permanent installation of the projector. Help, Help, Help I have a church service in that room tonight.

TRY TO ADJUST THE SCREEN RESOLUTION OF YOUR COMPUTER. FOLLOW THHIS FEW STEPS TO MAKE CHANGES...

1.Navigate to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.

2.In the Control Panel window, open Display.

Note: In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.

3.In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.

4.Locate the Screen resolution slider on the left-hand side of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is 800 by 600 pixels or 1024 by 768 pixels, possibly higher if you're using a 19" or larger monitor. The "best" setting is highly subjective to your personal preferences.

Note: Some types of software require the screen resolution settings to be set at a specific size. If you receive errors when opening certain software titles be sure to make any changes here as necessary.

5.Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any additional on screen directions.

Hope this initial info helps.

Go to start-settings -control- panel - display - settings tab. change the desktop resolution around ( the slider that says "desktop resolution"), checking the screen as you do . this should help you find the edges of the screen.

You're projector is most likely fine. Check your satellite box. Go to the menu and see how its set to display video. It may be trying to up-convert TV signals. Try different adjustments from there to see if you see any change.

The screen switched upside down while i was trying to adjust setting - how do i get it back right side up?


Go into the setup menu. Go to Display and there should be a setting to invert the signal. You have inadvertently toggled that setting. There are settings for rear projection called image reverse (don't change that one and also for inverted which could be called ceiling mount.

If opposite means that you want to rotate the image or picture for projector mount in the ceiling.

Press MENU button to display the menu screen.
then use joystick UP and DOWN to select the OPTION menu. Press joystick for ENTER to display the option screen. Then press joystick UP and DOWN to select INSTALLATION.
Then press joystick RIGHT and LEFT to select your required image rotation there is four type of rotations.
1. FRONT DESK

3.REAR DESK (A translucent screen is required for rear projection)
4.REAR CEILING (A translucent screen is required for rear projection)

If opposite means negative to positive so there is no any setting in your projector witch is chang your picture or image positive to negative.

The image of my optoma hd803 became inverted.


Go into menu settings, look for a menu item that has to do with screen size and orientation. You'll be looking for the option to rotate the image for mounting the projector upside down on a ceiling mount.

Image on screen is upside down


The orientation of your projector can be setup from the "Option" menu. You may need to select the "FRONT" and "CEILING" options to display the correct orientation of the image.

Projector vertical running lines


Hi there

This is definatelly a interference from a power cable. If any of your signal cables in the ceiling is closer that 5cm to one of those , you will get interference.

The Company that did the installation should know this and I would suggest you call them and tell them that they should sort it out. They should either move the cables or insulate them by means of conduit.

This is called "keystone adjustment". If you still have the owner's manual, it will describe how to do it. If you don't have the book, look on the button console on the projector, or on the remote for an icon that looks like a rectangle that is either narrow at the top or narrow at the bottom and press it. That will get you in the control. If there's no button, you will probably find it on the set up menu. It's pretty easy to do the adjustment, one way makes the image narrower at the top, the other makes it narrower at the bottom. Some older projectors just have a **** on the unit that changes the angle of one of the mirrors inside to accomplish the same thing. The reason for this adjustment is to compensate for the distortion of the image caused by a projector mounted near the ceiling and pointing down at the screen, or sitting near the floor and point up at the screen.

Bulb screen


Make and enclosure to surround the projector everywhere except the lense, put a fan (muffin fans are nice) in the side with a nice big filter on its inlet side blowing into your box and wire it so its on when the projector is. A source of cool air would be nice instead of that hot stuff up by the ceiling. Yes, heat is way bad for projectors.
