Question about BenQ PB6100 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Angle of projected image

When the projector is on a flat surface (shelf/table) the image is projected at approx 30 degrees upwards of the centreline of the unit. i.e. if you place the projector on a waist-high table, at 10 feet half the image is on the ceiling. is there any way this can be adjusted (it is not a menu option; this adjustment is a matter of pixels, the issue here is a matter of feet!)

Re: angle of projected image

Hi there

No this can not be changed , the PB6100 was actually designed to mounted upside down in your ceiling and therefore the lens is 28-30 degrees upwards when projected on a flat surface.

Flip it upside down and you'll see what I'm getting at.

Bottom of screen is projecting at an angle. Other 3 sides are at 90 degree angles

It is called as keystone distortion. To correct the problem press the "Keystone" button on the projector, then press left, right, down & up arrow buttons to adjust the angle at 90 degrees.

Cannot focus uniformly across the projected screen. This seems to be more than a focus problem in that some areas of the image seem blurry as opposed to out-of-focus. Also, in what may be a related...

try bringing the screen up as close as possible to the projector and still get a focused picture. check keystone here and also for image clarity. if you still have problems, check for dust or moisture etc in the optics. check the lamp for a clean front surface. clean the air filter also. Try a different image source for differences

Dell 4100MP Image Not Centered Thru Lens

No to your question. The lens is fixed it cannot shift horizontally only although there are projectors that can do this. I am sure you have the front foot retracted? I have had to do the same as you are doing or find a lower table.

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.

My picture slants in towards the top from bottom

The issue has to do with something called "Keystone". This allows you to set the projector at an angle and project on an angle. When you set the projector on a flat surface, you would need to adjust the keystone to get rid of the "trapazoid" look of the image.

Aiming picture.

This unfortunately is the configuration of the lens. The projector normally does this to project the image upward for viewing.

The only way you are going to bring it down, is to jack up the rear of the projector, either with a book or something of that nature.

Good Luck

Upside down projection

Hi career link

If you enter the User Menu on the Projector you will see a subfolder that will read Mirror or Flip Image.

Scroll down to this folder and press left or right until the image is flat fronted ( table front projection )

Thanks for using Fixya !

DELL 1200MP projector problem

I don't know that particular model, but usually these are hung u pside down and the projector can flip the image. That should take care of it. Also, depending upon the angle to the screen, you may need to adjust the "keystone" as well. That will allow the final picture to be square as if the projector was at the correct angle.
