1. Press the "Display On" button and wait for the projector to display the source that is chosen (usually PC at first). Make sure that the source and the monitor built into the cart are both powered on as well.
2. Once the monitor and projector are correctly displaying, choose the source that you would like to display from. Make sure that all cables are connected correctly and that the chosen source is powered on.
3. To adjust the volume of your source, turn the volume knob on the controller clockwise until the audio is the correct volume. Make sure the audio is also adjusted correctly on your source.
4. After you are finished using the teaching station, press the Display Off button to turn off the projector. Please leave other devices powered on.
