Menu flipped on screen

Hi Guys, Can I flip the menu on a CX85 or CX 86 when I am running it in a flipped horizontal mode. I am not rear projecting. I am running a mirror image of the same image on two projectors. cheers Andy

    Hi Nic,

    I'm fine with inverting and flipping the image.
    My question is 'if the image is flipped horizontally or vertically the menu is also flipped. eg the text is reversed.'

    This is fine if you rear project but when they sit side by side and one is flipped the above menu problem appears on the one that is flipped. In this case, horizontally.

    Do I remedy that in the menu settings?

    cheers

    Andy

    Hi M8 and Nic,

    Thanks for the info.
    I'll have a look at the full manual and see if I can come up with a workaround.

    cheers

Hi Andy!

Yepp, you can do that, each and one of your projectors have separete settings. So you can run one hanging from the roof and the other one standing on a table if you want. How the picture is showing depends on how you set up the the settings in the specific projector. The the signal that comes to the projectors are always the same, its only the settings on the projector that can change that.

Good luck
Nic

Your projector has been set up for rear projection - you need to change it to front projection. Access the setup menu, then use the option to flip the image horizontally. Viewing the image in a mirror may make it easier for you while navigating through the menu options

Need to know how to invert a picture on a epson projector


You didn't give your model, but on the Epson I have (a PowerLite S1), the projection mode is controlled through the "Settings" menu. This may not be right for your model, but I'd think another Epson would be similar.

On mine, this is how it works:

1) Press "Menu" on the projector (or remote, which will work the same way)
2) Use the "V" (down arrow) to highlight "Setting"
3) Press "Enter" to select the "Setting" menu
4) Press "Enter" to select the "Screen" sub-menu
5) Down-arrow to "Projection" and press "Enter" to select it
6) Use the up- and down-arrows to highlight the arrangement you want from the choices offered:
  • "Front": normal use
  • "Front/Ceiling": image is vertically flipped
  • "Rear": image is horizontally flipped
  • "Rear/Ceiling": image is flipped both horizontally and vertically
7) Press "Enter" to select
8) Press "Menu" to exit the menus

I hope this works for you, or at least gives you a starting point. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Image is upside down on the screen


Alot of projectors (being all projectors that are designed to be hung from a roof) have an image flip function. This is because when you install a projector in a roof you have to flip the projector upside down so the projector doesn't have to be pointed down and doesn't cause any problems with keystoning.
If you have just bought a new projector and installed it in the roof or perhaps bought it second hand and are projecting from the floor (when the previous owner may have had it in the roof), you will need to go through the menu screen until you find this setting. I don't know exactly what Epson call this function but it should be in there somewhere. If you have it on the floor you want image flip off, if you have it in the roof you want vertical image flip on, horizontal image flip is for when your projecting onto a special screen surface from behind the screen.

My project image is flipped horizontally on the screen, but displays normally on my laptop. How do I fix my projector image?


The projector may have a menu function for flipping the image dependent on whether it is merely set on a desk, or mounted upside down on the ceiling. See the manual, printed or online.

How can i mirror image on the ce100, the directions in manual are not working. are there updates to capibilities?


As far as I remember there was no function "Flip hor./ver." in Futura 1.0.0.x. You could upgrade your software to version 2.5.0.x which is working with ce100/200 sewing machine models and contains functionality as newer models have. In this software version you will find function "Flip" in the context menu of Select mode (select design or color blocks you'd like to mirror, click right mouse button and select in the menu "Flip horizontally" or "Flip vertically").

Hi cajun51man

If you go into the User Menu of the Projector look for a subfolder that reads either Flip Image or Mirror.

Scroll down to it and scroll left or right - this will switch between the image features.
