I have 3-way wall switches to lower and raise both the screen and projector from the ceiling. Is it necessary to return the switch to the neutral position, or can it be left in the up/down position without burning up the motor?

Re: 3-way wall switch left in up/down position
Most Projection screens which are electronically operated have a couple of switches inside, so that when the motor runs to the stop point, the switch activates and the motor stoops. The central point is there purely to allow you to have the screen at a custom height, say to make a 4:3 screen appear as 16:9 without loads of white space around the picture. Also, if the motor didn't stop, it wouldn't burn out at low point, as it would simply wind the screen back up the wrong way round the axle.

If opposite means that you want to rotate the image or picture for projector mount in the ceiling.
KEYS location: (keys are located back side of the projector there is 2 keys 1 for menu and second is a joystick witch have 4 arrow keys and center press is a enter key)
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 imagepositive to negative.
I don't know the model number for your projector, but most projectors are designed to place the image level with the bottom of the projector, which works great for tabletop mounting but not so great for ceiling mounts.
If you're mounted at ceiling height, try turning the projector upside down to see if it places the image in the right place on your screen. If that fixes it, then use the on-screen menus for your projector to flip the image and you should be all set.
okay most people think well its not hot up there but truely it is hot toward the cealing. If its overheating on the roof mount try to use a wall mount instead.. If they have it running for 5 days streight then is something your not oding right here and that might be the mount.
don't know much about the cinego ( resolution ect)
but on most laptops you will have a "F" button or function key near the top row.. mine is F5 that has 2 square icons to show 2 monitors, 1 black, 1 white, when your projector is hooked to your laptop, hold down the FN key probably lower left or right, and tap the F5 or f7 which ever has the 2 montiors on it, it should be a 3 position switch, 1..laptop only, 2 laptop and projector, 3rd position projector only.
that cingo is pretty low-end so you may have to goto display properties on your laptop and reduce the resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.
if you can't get a setting that works, try the 3rd position with just the projector display on, and laptop display off, since your laptop screen is higher resolution it corrects a lot of issues.
