Cameras need to have the Dip Switch #2 (the tiny white
switches seen along the side) gently pushed UP
to use a LCD projector. (All Dip switches need to be
in the UP position to use with LCD projectors.)
Dip switch troubleshooting tips:
1) Check the dip switch setting on the unit. It is located
next to the Light module DC input. Make certain that
all the dips are on UP position.
2) If all the dips are on UP, but the unit still not
working. Set the dips to DOWN first, then set to UP
3) Disconnect all the cables from the unit, and connect
the power cord first, then connecting the LCD projector.
4) Reset the unit to original default setting, to do
so: go to Menu> Default Setting> Yes.
