any harm in placing the H2 projector like this?

Hi all
as the title says is there any harm to putting the Xgimi H2 projector up side down?
pic attached
placing the projector as normal makes the picture show on roof, and manual keystone does not help.

It has the ceiling mode so I don't think it should present any problems.

Just be sure that the vent's are not covered or buttons pressed.
there is a teardown of the H2 so that you can see how the innards are arrange for research purpose

All you have to do is read the placement and ventilation recommendations in the manual. For Most projectors it’s recommended that you leave space above the projector for heat dissipation. Although I assume this applies for upside down projectors, I think it’s ok to leave it as you did, because there’s plenty of space for heat be released from the projector all around it.

You said manual!!!!

This isn't an Epson.

This thing comes with like a quarter page Ikea set of instructions as the 'manual'.
