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.

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.
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.
on the bottom side of the steering column, there's a hole in the plastic about the size of a pencil. push a pencil or pen into the hole about 1/2 inch. you will feel a spring loaded pin push up easy against spring and turn key. will come right out. learned about this as i was tearing down steering column to get my key out. you will use this alot with a aztek.
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.
To load more lead into the Zebra Z Grip mechanical pencil you must follow these steps:
1. Use the extra provided lead or purchase a refill package in 0.7mm size.
2. Remove the plastic cap that covers the eraser on the end of the pencil.
3. With the cap removed, gently tug the eraser out of the end.
4. When the eraser is removed, place a few pieces of lead into the open tube.
5. Insert the eraser.
6. Replace the cap on the end of the pencil.
7. Depress the end of the pencil a few times to feed the lead through the tip.
