Question about InFocus ScreenPlay 5700 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

2 ISSUES: 1) Pencil tip size dot in the middle of the projection. 2) weird smell coming from projector vent.

1) My projection has a pencil head sized dot that is projected in the top middle of my projection. Anyone have an idea about what this is and how to get rid of it? 2) Unfamiliar smell coming from the projector vent. It's not a strong smell but it's noticable enough to irritate the senses. Anyone have an idea about what this is?

Might be a speck of dirt on your lens, possibly on the inside. I assume youe have wiped the outside of the lens? ;-) (I have to ask) If the dot seems to be following pixels exactly your projector might be broken. The smell might be from some dirt or possible an insect in the projector. Try using compressed air to blow out any dirt and dust. It might just be dirt acumulated over time that is burning to create the smell. t t might be a long shot, but if the bulb is easily removed, yo ou might try to shine a flashlight through the lens to see if there is dirt on the lens inside. If you adjust the image size mechanically, or use lens shift, does the speck move on the picture? If so, it's probably on the lens.

How do I reset a pioneer deh-x36ui dech

If there is no reset switch on either the face or sub panel (usually a pencil tip sized indentation on the face or small pencil tip sized hole on the sub panel), you can reset the deck by disconnecting power to it by disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes if you are unable to remove the radio from the dash and disconnect the wire harness.

How to sharpen a pencil so the tip doesn't break

When I was in school it would always frustrate me that the tips of the pencil were always breaking in the sharpener. It took many tries of turning the pencil and turning the sharpener, different amounts of pressure and I finally found the secret.

Sharpening a pencil is a very easy thing to do. When you are using a hand sharpener, either a small plastic one with a cartridge to catch the shavings or the really small ones that don't catch the shaving, your put the utencile end of the pencil into the sharpener keeping it has straight as possible.

Applying a little pressure turn the pencil in the clockwise motion (you can turn either the pencil or the sharpener both will work). The shavings will begin to fall off and you keep turning until either you are satisfied with the sharpness of the tip or the shavings stop coming off. Make sure that you don't put more pressure on the pencil to make the shaving keep coming off because that will make the tip break and get stuck in the sharpener.

Pull the pencil out and clean the sharpener, it should be good to go. What I discovered was that if I had dropped a pencil a few times then the lead inside the pencil would be broken and this would cause the tip to break after sharpening. Treating your pencils nicely will keep them from breaking tips when you sharpen.

Please how do I refill my Bic Quantech #2 0.5 pencil? I have the correct size leads, but cannot figure out the mechanics. Thanking you, Margaret

Got it, thanks to the chap at OfficeWorks. Take the plastic cover off the eraser at the top of the pencil. Then wiggle the eraser out of its seat. Then you will find a hole going down the centre of the pencil, under where the eraser was. Drop a couple of leads into there, put the eraser back in, put the eraser cover on and Bob's your Uncle.
