2. If you want to use your own computer with this console:

Please read and understand your computer’s instruction manual, with particular attention to the section referring to “video mirroring” which allows the image on your laptop’s screen to be “mirrored” by the projector.
Some older computers cannot send the image to the projector and the laptop screen at the same time.
Always carry your laptop’s manual and AC adapter with you.
There are hundreds of computer configurations currently available making this
a task that must be individualized for your computer.
You may also arrange for an AV specialist to accompany you to your classroom for a run-through.
Please call 81494 for more information.

Troubleshooting Information

1. No image through the projector:

Is the Console’s MAIN POWER SWITCH ON?
Can you see a blue light coming from the projector? (If not, the projector is not on)
Have you selected the correct SOURCE (INPUT 1=COMPUTER, INPUT 2 =DOC
CAM, INPUT 3=VIDEO?)
If you are using equipment in the console (TV/VCR/DVD) is the proper button on the
AV1 INPUT SELECTOR pressed?
If you are using the VCR/DVD player, make sure there is a small green light under
the unit you are using. If not, press the VCR/DVD button in the middle of the player
until the green light comes on.
If you are using a computer, check that the VGA cable is connected to your laptop
securely.

2. No Sound:

Is the Amplifier on? Are the MASTER LEFT & RIGHT Levels at 12:00 and the
AUDIO or COMPUTER LEVEL at 9:00 or higher?
If you are using equipment in the console (TV/VCR/DVD, Local Input) is the proper
button on the VIDEO Selector pressed?
Is there audio on the tape?
Is the volume up on your laptop?

3. The computer image is cut off on one side or jumping:

Press either AUTO PC ADJ button on the Projector Control in the console drawer.
If that does not work, restart the LAPTOP.

4. Can’t log on to the internet:

Your ethernet cable may not be working. You may check one out from AV.

Your computer is not configured properly to log on to the network.
Please go to Computing Services in ADM 110 for assistance.
The server may be down.
The wall jack in the room may be down.
Call 81494 to have someone come out and check it. No quick fix available.

If these steps do not work, call Audio Visual at 81494. Tell us:
1. What room you are in.
2. What the problem is.
We will try to assist you over the phone. If that fails, we will send an AV assistant to
your classroom.
