Re: Upside down projection

Download the latest display driver for your video card. If you are using ATI vc's then download and install the Catalyst Application which will allow you to rotate the screen orientation .

My image is upside down after I mounted my projector to the ceiling

There are projection mode settings which will allow you to adjust the orientation of the image. Adjusting this setting will rotate the image so that it is not displayed upside down when attaching the projector to the ceiling.

To activate this setting:

  1. Press the Menu button on the projector.
  2. Using the Arrow buttons, select the Image icon on the left side.
  3. On the Image screen under the Projection label, select the icon that represents ceiling mounted projection. Note: You may see both front and rear ceiling mounted projection modes. You may choose which ever best suits your needs.
  4. Press Menu on the projector controls to exit the settings menu.

Hi, Your projector is probably set for ceiling mount which will project an upside down image because the projector is normally mounted upside down when installed on the ceiling. Go into the menu and select extended then select projection then select front. That should return the image to right side up.

I want to hang it on the ceiling face down, but the it projects upside down!

almost all projectors have a menu setting to allow the image to be flipped when ceiling mounted. Be careful not to confuse this with the rear projection setting which it is also likely to have...this makes a mirror image.

Just go in to the menu using the remote or the buttons on the projector and you will find a setting in there

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.

Mounting the Projector from the Ceiling

Projectors, in general want to project the bottom of the image 1 foot above the lens at a typical range. When mounted upside down, they project the top of the image 1 foot below the center of the lens. If you don't want to turn the projector over, you'll have to change the angle and probably go to the extreme on the keystone correction.
