How can I stop my Qumi Q5 shutting down after a minute?

It is most probably overheating. First you need to open up the unit and see if the fan moter is frozen. It is probably because you can't hear it spinning. There are usually two bushings one in the front and one at the rear of the motor. They are usually permentally lubricated but as we know nothing is forever. So, try to take some good quality oil like 3 in 1 and try to drip a drop on either side of the motor where the shaft comes out and then try spinning it by hand. Hopefully that may work but if not then as a last resort try spraying just a very small amount of WD-40 and try spinning it again. If it then does work then use the 3 in 1 again. WD-40 will probably clean the gum out of those bushings but it is not a proper lubricant so that is why you need to use that 3 in one or any good quality lubricant like gun oil.

If all else fails then you probably have a bad fan motor and it will have to be replaced. Just so you know I have had this same problem, usually with air conditioning fan motors and most of the time the lubrication method that I just described worked very well.

Good luck,

Projector is suspended from the ceiling upside down and so it is projecting upside down. How do i get it to project the images the right way up?

Since you have not mentioned the model it is diffficult if the option of reverse image is available on the menu. If so all you need to do is to scroll the menu and reverse/invert this image. If not the other option is to mount the projector with the projector fitted on a small stand in the same direction and not invereted. I hope you will search for this in the menu or in the rear panel. If not mount it in the actual position with a stand so that you can corrrect the height using the provided screw adjusters.Helpful? Good day

Casting image lower on wall

I don't know the model number for your projector, but most projectors are designed to place the image level with the bottom of the projector, which works great for tabletop mounting but not so great for ceiling mounts.

If you're mounted at ceiling height, try turning the projector upside down to see if it places the image in the right place on your screen. If that fixes it, then use the on-screen menus for your projector to flip the image and you should be all set.

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!

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.
