Re: picture become reversed

In the menu functions there is a place you can change the way the image is projected on the screen. If the projector is mounted in the ceiling you need to change it to front/ceiling, but if you scroll through the options you should be able to find the one that will work for you.

My projector screen is showing my computer screen upside down, how can I fix this?

I don't know your model but you just need to go into the menu and look for the section that explains how to reverse or rotate your image. Many people ceing mount them upside down and need to flip the picture which is what has happened to you.

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.

Picture is upside down

Your projector is set in ceiling mode. This is for when it hung upside down from the roof. Without a make and model it's not possible to give exact instructions but if you search through the on screen menus and either find "factory default reset" or the image/picture mode section you will be able to reset it.

Rotation of screen

The Cinego only reverses the picture, so that it can be reflected from a mirror. It won't rotate the picture.

Xd70u upside down image no remote how to control with PC

Try the menu feature, then installation, image reverse until it gets to the correct position. Note, the Image Reverse rotates in quarters. You can also access the Menu feature from the projector. It just happened to me and as I was looking for answers and playing around with it, I fixed it!
Good Luck!

Reversing the picture on the monitor

Here is the manual:
ScreenPlay 4805 ScreenPlay 4805
Check page 38 on picture settings, you can revers the image to project from behind a screen (mirror), I don' think you can have picture upside down (180 rotation) using projector settings. You need to reverse image source (eg. picture on computer).

Optoma H56 - turns off just after start up.

It's not a short, the blub is near the end of it's life ~ the optoma is designed to detect when the blub is about to blow and shuts itself down. Turning the projector upside down or right side up usually only gives you a brief reprieve (some have reported a modest amount of extra time gained) on the blub ~ but in the end it's on it's way out and the projector will shut down again.
