My sharptv lcd-52e77un main board was replaced,but everything works except that the picture is upside down,how do I remedy this problem?


Hi Marvin,
This is a common problem after main board replacement. You will have to open the service menu, go to mirror effect and correct it there.
Good luck.

Why is everything upside down when looking in the simmons telescope


Most "astronomical" telescopes do invert. You can add an inverting mirror between the telescope and eyepiece, like this one:

You'll get rightside up, but left/right backwards images.

Cannon DSLR lens autofocus not working


This is a problem with the mirror and the sensor. Have you out the camera in sensor clean mode? turning the camera to P then use the menu buttons to go to the second set of tool. clean sensor is there. You must have a good battery charge for it to work. take off the lens then hold the camera face down and activate the sensor. This did not work for me but this was one of the suggestions, if the mirror does lift back up when you put the camera in sensor clean mode then it is not the hinge that some are paying to be replaced. I took my camera and oddly enough turned it upside down in af mode in auto mode and it started shotting photos and focusing again. i did this about ten shots and when I put it back right side up everything worked fine! Try it and let me know.

Upside down


Hi - I think you may have activated the "mirror mode" by rotating the LCD panel.

See page 33 in the manual:
