Question about Smart Technologies SMART Board 580 (SB580)

1 Answer

Smartboard 580 draws scribbly lines

When I draw a letter, number or something along those lines the S.B. interprets the inputs as "waves" instead of lines. It makes the writing on the board nearly impossible to read? Besides checking my Dips, any other suggestions?

Dip checking first is good. then reorient the board. press and hold the 2 large buttons on the pen tray until the 9-point orientation appears. use one of the smart pens to orient. don't just press the dots, start about 6 inches from the dot and draw an arc to the dot and hold it at the dot for a second, then release and do the same for the other 8. if there is still a problem, the usb voltage might be low coming from the hub/computer. try another usb cable or a shorter one. there shouldn't be more than 4 usb cables coming from one hub and the usb cables cannot be longer than 16 feet.

How to write letter verifing address

    • 1Before you begin, set your marginicon1.png 1 inch from the top, 1 inch from the bottom, and 1.25 inches on both sides.
    • 2If you're using letterhead, there's no need to type in your name and address. If you're using plain white paper, type in your name, address and phone number (phone number is optional), centering the text. Make the font in this portion of the letter slightly larger than the rest of the text. You should also type your name, address and phone number in boldicon1.png type.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3About four lines down from your name and address, type the date in full after strikingicon1.png the "Tab" key seven times to bring you a little further than the middle of the page. The date should be typed in full like this:
      February 1, 2009.
    • 4Four or five lines down from the date, at the left hand margin, type the name and address of the person you're sending the letter to. This portion of the letter is called the inside address. If the person you're addressing the letter to has a title, type his or her name first, then type in a comma, space once and type in the title, such as:
      Jamie L. Mulligan, Manager
    • 5Two lines down from the inside address, strike the "Tab" key seven times and type in the subject line. The subject line tells the recipient what the letter is about. In this case, it should look like this:
      Re: Verification of address
    • 6Two lines down from the subject line, type in the salutation. The salutation could be Dear Sir, Dear Ms. Mulligan, Gentlemen, or To Whom It May Concern (if you don't know the name of the contact person). The salutation should look like this:
      Dear Ms. Mulligan:
    • 7Two lines down from the salutation start the body of your letter five spaces in from left margin. The body of your letter should start out saying something such as:
      I am writing you this letter to verify that 101 Washington Street, Lynbrook, New York 11593 is the address I should ship your order to.
    • 8Two lines down from the body of your letter, after striking the "Tab" key seven times, type in a complimentary closing such as:
      Very truly yours, or
    • 9Four lines down from the complimentary closing and in line with the complimentary closing, type your full name in, like this:
      Jamie L. Mulligan
    • 10Sign your name in the space between the complimentary closing and your typed name.

My dell laptop types numbers instead of letters on some keys without pressing fn key

If you Are writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps

As I input characters - letters, it prints out

Go to Preferences, then general, then Digitizer.

You need to recalibrate the digitizer.

It will ask you to tap in two opposite corners, then at a target in the center of the screen.

Take input from user and tell either the letter is capital or small a...z A...Z should be solved with if else statement

Use asci code:
char input[]; or string

if(intput[0] <=90 && input[0] >=65) write capital
if(intput[0] <=122 && input[0] >=97) write small
or easy:
if(intput[0] <='Z' && input[0] >='A') write capital
if(intput[0] <='z' && input[0] >='a') write small

input[0] it's the first letter.
If you wanna use the asci press and hold alt then input the number in the Num Lock from the right (only!!) then relyse the alt the it's will write the char from the asci you write.
Rate me please, thanks.

    Your generator may be putting out a square wave instead of a true sinusoidal (sine) wave.

    There is usually a circuit in the microwave which monitors the AC line for timing purposes, and a square wave may not be interpreted correctly.

    I would consult the manual or contact the manufacturer or installer.

    We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
