Any Smartboard Technicians in the North East?
The school have purchased and installed a second hand smartboard, which does not seam to be working, projector works and is on but then when a computer is connected the projector goes off, tried a laptop and fn +f5 key and also a desktop with splitter box and still same.
I have no other ideas on what to do. If any one has any suggestions please let me know.
Or if anyone knows of a firm in or around Darlington that will have a look please PM me.

Bit of a strange one that. The projector and whiteboard should work independantly. I don't necessarily think this is a problem caused by the whiteboard. How's it all setup? Was the projector and connection to it already there before you had the whiteboard installed or did have them put in along with the whiteboard?

Does the projector actually turn itself off or does it just go blank? It could be the resolution on the pc/laptop being set to high .. try setting it to the minumim and see if that makes any difference

Im not at the school at the moment, but its one of those all in one things. The projector is sort of built into the arm on the smartboard.
You turn everything on and the projector comes on shows a screen saying something like what do you want to do connect to a computer usb conect to a video ect.
then you turn the computer on and after about 5-10 seconds the procector goes blank

Hi Mark, it is a unifi35. I think its a vixill ultra close projector. But wont be able to get in the room for another hour to check.

Hi Matt unfortunatly Unifi35 are not the best projector, i am trying to be as kind as i can here, search for it in here you will see what i mean.
Does it shut down or just blank the screen if you leave it connected does all fans stop after 5 mins or so?
or is it just blanking the screen so if you remove the connection to the computer does it come back on from a blank screen?
