Slides not advancing automatically

All functions are set properly: Slide Transition = Sound entered in .wav file,
advance= checked on automatic after 4 sec.
clicked on "apply" (not apply to all)
Then click "Slide Show" (bottom of window)

Music starts but slides only advance one slide while music plays through.
I have to click each slide. Checking back, slide transition is still sitting on automatic.
Can you help? Thank you

    Previous solution useless.
    I repeat:
    Setting as follows:
    No transition
    Advance automatically after 4 sec
    Sound: .wav file
    Apply: click (not click all)
    Loop until next slide: unchecked
    then clicking slide show (icon bottom left of window)
    Music starts playing - slide advances to next slide and stops - while music plays through - after that I have to click each slide.

    There is no problem with the timing. To repeat:
    The music plays on but the slides stop advancing after the first slide


  • loulubensky Jan 24, 2009

    you need to reharse timeings. open up the powerpoint
    click on slide show then on reharse timeings, go with the speed you want. and when the slide ends, click yes to the question, and the new timeing will be enabled now view the show again by pressing f5 and it should play on its own.

    Previous solutions of Jan 24 useless.
    I performed an uninstallment and I reinstalled Office 2000. Rebooted my computer.
    Reloaded Power Point, performed the same functions as stated above ---- no difference.
    The music plays on while slides stop advancing automatically after 2 second slide.
    I repeat:
    Setting as follows:
    No transition
    Advance automatically after 4 sec
    Sound: .wav file
    Apply: click (not click all)

    I dont know where these answers come from. It seems that all solutions are automatic responses and do not address my problem

  • loulubensky Jan 26, 2009

    Hi Wiz,
    I have done all these exercises previously without results trying it out on different .ppt slides, saving it in .pps format but the slide just goes to the second slide and no further. Beyond that I have to click.
    I am afraid I have a malfunction in my 2000 Power Point. It worked once or twice before but no longer.
    Unless you can think of another solution I will have to live with.
    Incidentally, I also have OpenOffice.org Impress installed on my computer. It works just fine there. Slides advance automatically with the music playing trough. Unfortunately though, you can't email it out, the sound is not imbedded and won't transfer.
    Thanks for your help but it did not solve the problem.

Have you tried activating transitions?
This way the sound will be playing while transitions occur, and not wait till the end of music to advance.
Also the way you insert you wav file is important, as the sound may be refering to a single slide or to the full presentation (all slides). And the latter is what you want so i suggest you check this setting.

I just set up a small power point presentation. It would seem to me that you need to apply your changes to all slides, if you want automation from slide to slide. I also had to remove the check from "use mouse click" after doing these 2 things and applying the changes to all the slides you want transitioning. That should fix the problem your having with transition and having to use the mouse.

I hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa,

Hey lou,

have you tried saving your presentation first?

Set up a presentation to start automatically

  1. On the File menu, click Save As.
  2. In the Save as type box, select PowerPoint show (.pps).
  3. In the File name box, enter a file name, and then click Save.
Notes
  • To start the presentation, double-click the file name in Windows Explorer.
  • To advance through the presentation, click anywhere on the screen.
  • To exit the presentation before it is finished, press ESC.

well, im not sure if this is what your looking for, but i think if you just want the slides to move automatically, you should get use of the timings...

  1. On the Slide Show menu, click Set Up Show.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To turn timings on, under Advance slides, click Using timings, if present.
    • To turn timings off, under Advance slides, click Manually.

Check the animation times,
as you've included a wav or movie file into your slideshow, the slides will wait for the song to complete before advancing, unless you set the animation timing properly..

    If you also want it to advance automatically
    without hitting "space" you need to go to the Slide Show menu... choose
    Set Up Show, then click on the checkbox called Loop continuously until
    Esc. Then when you hit
    F5, it will advance automatically unless you uncheck that box again.

    Do it this way:

    1. View all slides (Slide Sorter View)

    2. Right click first slide.

Try Slide Show|Slide Transition| and transition to change slides automatically after x seconds. You need to tell it how many seconds.

HOW DO I LOOP A SOUND FILE TO KEEP PLAYING TO THE END OF THE SLIDES WITHOUT EXTENDING THE TIME OF EACH SLIDE?


1) File > New > Presentation > Create (new presentation with all default settings)
2) Panel at right: Slide Transition > Modify Transition > Sound = "apert" (fourth in the drop down list)
You should hear a short (~2s) sound at this point, as the effect is "previewed". If you don't hear it, try the "Play" button at the bottom of the Slide Transition panel. If that doesn't work, then OOo is not able to play sounds and you have to fix that before proceeding.
3) Slide Transition > Modify Transition > Sound = "Other sound" > (select your long music file).
You may or may not hear the preview for this, it depends on whether your music file has a quiet leader at the beginning. If the audio starts right away, you should hear it. If the audio starts after 1-2s of silence, you won't hear anything.
4) Click "Slide show" (bottom of the Slide Transition panel) or F5.
You should hear the music start. It will continue to play even after you advance to the next slide (which is the black "End of show" screen. Advance again to end the show and the music should stop.

I just dragged this projector out of my grandma's basement. I have a new bulb and the projector appears to be in working condition except for the slide advance--the slides advance continuously. How...


There is usually a sliding tab on the side of the projector (behind the handle) that toggles between "manual" and "automatic" advance. (Some models will have a couple of pre-set advance settings between "manual" and "automatic." These usually advance the slides every three to ten seconds.) Push the tab to the manual setting--this will allow you to use the buttons towards the front of the machine to advance your slides.If moving the tab doesn't work it may be broken or jammed.

I bought a used Elmo TRV-35H 35mm projector. The camera works fine, but the tray only moves in reverse when I press the forward or reverse button. And after moving through a few slides it then moves...


Remember, mains voltages exist within the projector and thus the unit MUST be disconnected from the supply line whilst carrying out any servicing.

The reported fault sounds like sluggish operation of the advance/reverse mechanism. Lubricants used in the past tend to age and dry out so that the mechanism doesn't function correctly. IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT TO DO SO, remove the top of the unit and locate the slide mechanism. Carefully clean with cotton buds dipped in pure electronic cleaner and then re lubricate, using an oil dripper with the finest industrial sewing machine oil - emphasis is on a 'drip' of oil on the moving pivot points. Put the top back on and try again.

Problems with remote controllers are suually associated with tarnished contacts either in the hand unit or the projector. Once again, the contacts can be carefully cleaned and all should be well once more.

If you are using Kodak Carousel magazines, make sure you are using the correct magazine for your slides - cardboard or glass mounts. Don't mix slides in a magazine, as this can also cause problems.

How can I add a .wav file to an entire PowerPoint slideshow? I only know how to add sound to a single slide and want the file to play through the entire presentation. Thanks in advance for your help.


Since you have not mention the power point version that you are currently using I give you the method to embed sound in your entire slide show for both PowerPoint 2003 and PowerPoint 2007.

Lets start with PowerPoint 2003 : Go to the slide where you want to initiate the sound track in .wav form.(1st slide is the default).

Go to Insert> Movies and Sound> Sound from file
Select your .wav sound file and click ok.
After you click OK you will se a dialogue box appearing asking you "How do you want the sound to play". You have to specify that. If you are not sure select "Automatically" so when you land on that slide during the slide show your music or sound will start automatically.

Select Slide Show ->Custom Animation to enter the Custom Animation pane. Confirm Your soundtrack is listed below in the pane.
  • In the drop-down list of the sound, choose Effect Options. Then the Play Sound interface appears. In the Effect tab, click the radio button beside Stop Playing After XXX slides (which indicates how many slides you want this song to play across) to enter the number of slides you intend to add. For example, you can enter a number from 1 to 999 for this field. Then the sound will play throughout the specified slides.
  • Next, check the settings in the Timing tab. To play automatically, you can set to Start After Previous with a 0-second delay. Click OK to exit the dialog box.

  • Then go to Sound Settings tab, adjust the sound volume as you like. You can also tick to hide sound icon during slide show if you don't want it appear.
Now your sound will play from the first slide till the last.

Life is much much easier with PowerPoint 2007
  • On the slide, click Insert to pick the Sound drop-down list on the very right below the tab. Select Sound from File in the list and choose the specified sound track from your hard drive.
  • Click OK and a message prompts, saying How do you want the sound to start in the slide show? Click Automatically.
  • Now click the sound icon to display the Options tab. Click on the tab, and set Play across slides for Play Sound.
  • sound-2007.gif
At the moment, it is time for you to play the entire slide show while enjoying this pleasant sound score.
NOTE:
  • The sound you insert must be as long as your slide show. That is, if the slide show lasts 5 minutes, your soundtrack should also be at that length. Otherwise, the sound would be cut off until the slide show ends.
  • It is highly recommend that you take PowerPoint 2007 for your convenience.

I made a powerpoint presentation with PP2003, first added 6 slides, then added another 20. When I add music to the presentation, the music stops at the 6th slide. HELP!


To make a sound continue through multiple or all slides, follow these steps:
  • Go to the slide where you want to begin your audio track (defaulted as the first slide), and select Insert -> Movies and Sounds -> Sound from File to insert the sound.
  • After you click OK, you can see a message pop up asking how you want the sound to start in slide shows. Click Automatically.
  • Select Slide Show ->Custom Animation to enter the Custom Animation pane. Your soundtrack is listed below in the pane.
  • In the drop-down list of the sound, choose Effect Options. Then the Play Sound interface appears. In the Effect tab, click the radio button beside Stop Playing After XXX slides (which indicates how many slides you want this song to play across) to enter the number of slides you intend to add. For example, you can enter a number from 1 to 999 for this field. Then the sound will play throughout the specified slides.

  • custom-sound-2002.gif

    play-sound-2003.gif
  • Next, check the settings in the Timing tab. To play automatically, you can set to Start After Previous with a 0-second delay. Click OK to exit the dialog box.
  • Then go to Sound Settings tab, adjust the sound volume as you like. You can also tick to hide sound icon during slideshow if you don't want it appear.
Now you can play the soundtrack from the very beginning to the end of your slideshow.

No sound


Check Control Panel SOUND and make sure non of the boxes ( advanced option) (More) are not muted and the volume and balance slides are up.
Put an earphone into the sound out port ( usually green) to see if the sound is there. Make sure the unit sees that it has a sound card installed. One of the best checks is to select a Wav to play. It is in this that you will find that if a sound card IS installed and you can hear the WAV then the problem is in an internal volume slide or incorrectly plugged up set of speakers
