I just ceiling mounted a new Panasonic PT-AE2000U projector. The image is upside down. How can I fix this? Manual describes installation procedure for setting projection method. (front/desk, front/ceiling, etc) I don't know if this would change anything, but I don't know how to accesss this control. I am mounting in the front/ceiling mode. Would appreciate any advice. thx

I do not have this projector, but most if not all projector are set up so that you select the setting that you want. You want to set it for front ceiling. Go to where it shows projector method in the menu and press the right or left arrow button on the remote control. It will cycle through each of the choices. Once you have front ceiling showing press enter.

Those ARE the settings for changing the image orientation. They are accessed through the projector menu. I don't have that projector, but the manual will tell you how to get to those settings. Select Front/Ceiling.

I disagree. Clearly pdean needs to flip his screen upside down so the image will be right-side up.

Uh.....are you nuts? Why would you do that when you can simply turn the whole house upside down instead?

Flipping the screen wont work because the image will then be switched right to left. Turning the house over will work but do you have any idea how much something like that will cost. Moving to Australia is the best solution so far but all that Blokes and Shelia and G'day stuff would get to me.

Everyone has missed the easy solution and what many have done and that is to simply bolt the couch to the ceiling and install seatbelts.

Right, but how would you get up there? And what about when you want to eat and drink? I can think of some solutions but none of them seem easy...

Of course, I completely overlooked the obvious solution. Thanks.
