No, Iam not talking about mirror view type of invertion.... I am talking about turning LCD "UPSIDE DOWN". This should normally make the image too upside down, so that when it's projected, the picture is straight..... but it doesn't. The image remains standing striaght even when the LCD is turned upside down.

Yes, ilango_slk.... you got it now..!!! that's exactly what I was trying to explain. The image adjusts itself to normal viewing, irrespective of the position of the lcd.... It's mentioned there on the box also, but I ignored it.

But anyways... it's all in a good situation now. There was an option in the setup that went unnoticed by me.
One has to scroll down through the menu to get that option. There, not only I can disable this feature, but also do a tonns of other settings like switching between as many as 10 aspect ratio formats - right from 4:3 to 16:9. Also, I can invert or make the image appear in mirror view, or just a normal image... it's too good. The brand is named SUPER, but all the circuit boards are of SHARP make.

Looks like this monster will come live by this weekend...!!!
BINGO..!!!

Best wishes Maks! Looking forward to see your completed project. Mine is coming up very slowly, as I am finding it difficult to get time in between my work to spend on this hobby!.

Thanks pollok.... I am going to start the third phase of testing tonite... this's gonna be one that will show the actual performance of the PJ, when I run it for a prolonged time and the heat is really ON inside. If it passes through this fire test, I'll finish the final fittings in next couple of days.

You know what Pollok... just like you, I too was finding it difficult to get time in between my work and the construction of the PJ. But then I started working on it late nights. We have a 5-day week here. So I lock myself in the work room on weekends, and get buried with the projector construction. I haven't taken my wife out on weekends for last over two months... neither have we watched a latest release DVD at home.... the reason why I want to conclude this project at earliest.

Default Gotcha..!!!

Guyz, while constructing this projector, I have learnt a lots of new things besides just the optics. Something that I got to know lately, I would want to share this with you all.

As I was struggling the feature in the LCD wherein, the image adjusts itself to normal viewing, irrespective of the position of the LCD whether striaght or upside down, I figured ou how to disable that in the setup... okay, no big deal. But last night, when I fitted the circuit board back in it's place, it was back to square one. This time even changes to the setup didn't help. After breaking head for atleast 30 mins, what I found was astonishing... There's a small bulb type glass component, which has a drop of mercury inside it. The mercury moves as we move the circuit board. If it is in downward position, then the LCD is used as a normal viewing. But if the mercury is in upward position (LCD turned upside down) then the picture adjust itself to normal irrespective of the position of the LCD. Isn't that great..???

Glad to hear that you are back on track. If you lcd has a position tracker "that little mercury gadget" then it should of reasonable quality. Hope you have found one of the best LCDs around in the market. Waiting to see the finished results of this LCD...

ALL THE BEST
