If an over-temperature condition occurs, perform the following checks while
you allow the projector to cool:
• Verify that the room temperature is below 86° F (30° C).
• Check the intake and exhaust vents. Clear any obstruction to the air flow.
• Make sure that the fans are working. If the projector has reached an
over-temperature condition and the fans are working, you should feel a
strong flow of hot air from the left rear vent. If the fans are not working,
the projector needs service.
NOTE: If you are using the projector at a high altitude location or in a warm
room, you may want to switch to High Altitude mode (Preferences menu) to
run the fans at a higher speed (see page 2-23).

each effect to start the desired effect.
THE PRESENTATION EFFECTS
The following are the Presentation Effects. To end any of the effects, press
the Esc key on your keyboard or the key on remote that you assigned for
that effect.
Break Timer is a digital timer that counts down from a duration you set.
Once you start the timer, click the MouseDisk once to lengthen the
duration.
You can also use Break Timer to play a sound or select a background color
or picture. If your computer is equipped with a sound card, you can select a
.WAV file and play it continuously while the timer is running, or use it as an
alarm that sounds when the timer expires.
To set a transparent background, uncheck Color and Picture. To display a
picture, check Picture, click File, then select the desired .BMP file.
Center Cursor centers the mouse pointer on the screen. This helps prevent
"losing" the cursor.
Custom Cursor changes the appearance of the mouse pointer to one of 30
images. Only the standard arrow pointer changes. The other standard icons
(such as the hourglass) are not affected.
Detail Cursor magnifies the area around the pointer in a small rectangle.
Effects Menu displays a list of effects. Use this feature to start effects that
you haven’t assigned to a button or key. To start an effect, double-click its
name. Press ESC on the keyboard to close the list without starting an effect.
Highlight Bar draws a horizontal bar across the screen. Move the bar up or
down to draw attention to different areas on the screen . You can also
change the color and width of the bar.
Highlighter works like a highlighter pen on your computer screen, by
overlaying a semi-transparent color on your screen. You can change the
color and width of the "pen."

Magnify enlarges a rectangular area around the mouse pointer. You can
choose from three levels of magnification (200%, 400%, or
800%).
NOTE: To enlarge the entire screen, use the Zoom effect.
Next/Previous advances to the next or previous slide.
Object allows you to draw rectangles, squares, ellipses, and circles. You can
change the color and width of each shape.
Refresh repaints the projected image. Use this feature to erase "remnants"
of Stamp and Telestrator effects.
Reveal hides the image, then lets you incrementally reveal more and more
of the image. You can specify a color for the hidden area, a horizontal or
vertical effect, and the size of the Reveal window.
Run Program starts a program that you choose.
Screen Blank blanks the screen to a color that you choose.
Sound plays a .WAV file when you press a button. You can play the sound
repeatedly or just once.
NOTE: You must have a sound card to use this effect.
Spotlight dims all of the image except for the area around the mouse
pointer. You specify the shape and size of the spotlight (circular, square, or
bar). Once you’ve started Spotlight, press the MouseDisk to change its size.
Another setting makes the Spotlight visible against a black background.
Stamp allows you to choose from 15 different bitmaps to "stamp," or paste,
over the projected image. You can also choose to play a sound each time you
stamp.
Switch to F/X switches to the Cyclops F/X main screen.
Telestrator turns the mouse into a freehand drawing tool. You can
customize the color and width of the line and "constrain" the drawing to
only horizontal or vertical lines.
Ticker Tape displays a scrolling text message across the image. Just specify
the text of that you want to appear, the typeface, and the point size. You can
play a sound file each time the message runs across the image, and
customize the background color and picture.

Title Screen projects an image from a .BMP file. You can use this effect to
show a predefined image with transition effects during a presentation. You
can also play an associated sound. Just specify which file to play and
indicate whether to play it when the image appears or continuously.
Zoom enlarges the entire image to 200%, 400%, or 800% of its original
size. You choose whether to show the mouse pointer during a Zoom and
indicate the level of magnification. If you check the Show Cursor During
Zoom checkbox, left-click to manually cancel the zoom. If you uncheck the
Show Cursor During Zoom checkbox, left-click to change the zoom factor.
