Projector Help

The most common reason your computer is not projecting is because the setting to "Duplicate" your display has turned off.

To check this setting:

 

  1. Doublecheck your Document Camera is on, and switched to Computer.
     
  2. Click on your Windows Start button. (Or do Windows/p instead of steps 2&3)

  5. If it is already selected, select COMPUTER ONLY, then repeat steps 1-3.
     

NOTE: If you do not see the "Connect to Projector" option, type "connect to" in your Search Programs and Files box on the Start Menu. Pick it from the list of suggestions, then do step 3 above.

RESET ELMO DOCUMENT CAMERA

Power Off your document camera, then power it back on.

Tap the Computer button, then tap the Doc Camera button to try and "wake it up".

 


RESET PROJECTOR SOURCE

Sometimes the projector forgets what it's source is (computer or document camera or vcr/dvd)

Press the Computer button a few times to have to re-try connecting to the computer.

Press the Video button 2-3 times.

If you have an INPUT or SOURCE SEARCH button, press it a few times to have it try and find your document camera/computer.
