How Do You Flip a Projector Image Upside Down?
Flipping your projector’s image upside down is no difficult task. Most projectors come with their projection mode settings set to Front as default. If you want to mount the projector to the ceiling, you have to change the projection mode from Front to Front-Ceiling to flip your image upside down.
This will enable proper viewing of the image when the projector is mounted. Follow the following steps to access your projector’s projection mode menu to change the settings:
- Press the menu button on either your remote control or on the projector.
- Select “Extended” from the main menu.
- From the Extended menu, select Front-Ceiling from the list to flip your image upside down.
- Press “Menu” or “ESC” to exit.
This procedure could differ slightly depending on the projector brand you are using. With some projector brands, you will have to access a different option from the main menu to get to the Projection mode menu. On some projectors, you will have system settings instead of Extended. In the System settings menu, select “Basic” to find the projection mode menu.
Projectors like EPSON offers a shorter way to flip your projected image upside down using the remote control: the image will automatically flip upside down when you press the A/V button for 6s.
Why is My Projector Image Upside Down?
If it is a brand-new projector, the reason could be that the default projection mode of the device was set to Front-Ceiling. In cases where you use the projector with other people, it is possible the last user mounted the projector before using it.
You could have also changed the projection mode yourself or anyone else by mistake; projector brands like EPSON have a shortcut on their remote controls that can flip the image upside down when you press and hold it, thus the A/V button.
Regardless of what the reason is, know that the projection method has been set to Front-Ceiling. To fix this, access the projection method menu and change the settings to Front to have an upright image when mounted from a table.
How Do You Flip the Screen Upside Down on an EPSON Projector?
With EPSON projectors, there are two ways you can flip your image upside down. The first and easiest way is using your remote control; the A/V button can flip the image upside down when pressed down for 6s.
The other alternative is to access the Projection method menu. You can get to the menu with either the remote control or the buttons on your EPSON projector. Access the menu and select the “Extended” menu. Here, you will find the Projection menu. Select it and choose the Front-Ceiling mode.
In as much as finding solutions for common problems on old brand devices is difficult, it should not rule out using them at all. Some of these devices are of high quality and can still work fairly efficiently for you. They may not have some modern features like other projectors, but they can be very durable.
People have different ways they will want to mount a projector, and with each way, you have to change the projection mode accordingly to be able to view the projected image properly.
When your projector has projected an image that appears in a different direction, know that it is perfectly normal for that to happen. You just have to follow guidelines and procedures that will help you change the projection method to suit your needs.
