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!)

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.

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

Overhead Projector Tip- best results!!

For best results, slant the screen forward slightly so it meets at a 90 degree angle with the projected image light beam. In not, then a keystone effect results where the projected image is taller on top or on the sides; in other words, the projected image is a parallelogram, not a square.

If I understand correctly you want to project an image on the wall.

If this is correct, then open following links to Texas Art Supply:

Turn on projector, and image is projected to wall or piece of paper hanging on wall.
Trace image or paint directly on the surface.

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.

Image problem

IF I understand the problem from the limited info in your question, the problem is a distorted picture on whatever surface [probably a wall, or screen] onto which the image is projected.

With all lenses, the axis [centerline of the lens projected] MUST be absolutely PERPENDICULAR [in both the vertical and horizontal planes] to the perfectly plane [flat] surface onto which the image is projected.

IF for example, the projector is mounted in a rear corner of the room, and the camera is aimed downward and to one side to project the image on the center of the opposite wall, or a screen located there, the image will be distorted. It will be larger on one edge [fartherist from the lens] and smaller on the opposite [nearest] edge.

If it is non-perpendicular in only one axis, then two opposite edges will be different lengths, and if out of perpendicular in two axis then no edges will be the same length.

The solution to this problem is that the center axis of the lens must be perpendicular to the surface projected on, in both vertical and horizontal axis.

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.
