How to Run the Audio/Visual Equipment


PROJECTOR

  • Play CD disks,
  • Play DVD movies w/sound, or
  • Display Internet pages w/sound.

Important note:  Please power up the computer or turn the VCR on prior to pushing the Extron button for that device.  This will allow the Extron system to detect the equipment and provide the interface needed to project the images on the screen.   In addition, please do not push the Extron buttons at a rapid pace.  Doing so could delay the system from recognizing the device you wish to use causing a blue screen to appear.  If you get a blue screen, see the troubleshooting section below for more help.

Laptop note:  Their will be a cable for hooking up the laptop in the drawer.  Connect this cable to your laptop and to the audio /comp port (PC1 Input) on the Extron system.

SHUTDOWN
In order to maintain the integrity and continuous proper functioning of the system, it needs to be shut down correctly.  To shut down the projector, please press the power button; the red light on the Extron board will blink and a message will appear on the screen indicating for the user to please wait.  After a few moments the projector lamp will shut off, even though the fan will continue to run.   This is normal.  After a few minutes, the fan will shut off and the projector will be in standby mode for future use.  Please shut off all other devices as well, including the sound to maintain the reliability of the system.
