This section provides many useful tips on how to solve common problems while using the
AVerVision PL50.
There is no picture on the presentation screen.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Check all the connectors again as shown in this manual.
Check the on/off switch of the display output device.
Verify the setting of the display output device.
If you are presenting from a notebook or computer through the display output device, check the
cable connection from computer RGB (VGA) output to RGB input of AVerVision PL50 and make
sure AVerVision PL50 is in PC Mode.
5. For HDMI display output, a delay occurs while waiting for both the display device and AVerVision
PL50 to sync up. Wait for around 4 to 7 seconds until you see the camera image on the screen.
I have set up the AVerVision PL50 and checked all the connections as specified in
the manual but I cannot get a picture on the preferred presentation screen.
1. The unit POWER button turns orange in standby mode. Press the POWER button again to turn
on and the LED light will turn blue.
2. The default camera display resolution setting is on 1024x768. If your output device does not
support this resolution; no image can be projected. Simply press hold the FREEZE and ► button
to the change the resolution setting.
3. If your display output device is on TV or any analog device, please switch the TV-RGB dip switch
to TV.
The picture on the presentation screen is distorted or the image is blurry.
1. Reset all changed settings, if any, to the original manufacturer default setting. Press DEFAULT on
the remote or select Default in Basic tab OSD menu.
2. Use the Brightness and Contrast menu functions to reduce the distortion if applicable.
3. If you discover that the image is blurry or out of focus, press the Auto Focus button on the control
panel or remote control.

There is no computer signal on presentation screen.
1. Check all the cable connections among the display device, AVerVision PL50 and your PC.
2. Connect your PC to the AVerVision PL50 first before you power on your computer.
3. For notebook, repeatedly press FN+F5/F8 to toggles between display modes and display the
computer image on the presentation screen. For different command, please refer to your laptop
manual.
The presentation screen does not show the exact desktop image on my PC or
Notebook after I toggle from Camera to PC mode.
1. Return to your PC or Notebook, place the mouse on the desktop and right click, choose
“Properties”, choose “Setting” tab, click on “2” monitor and check the box “Extend my Windows
desktop onto this monitor”.
2. Then go back one more time to your PC or Notebook and place the mouse on the desktop and
right click again.
3. This time choose “Graphics Options”, then “Output To”, then “Intel® Dual Display Clone”, and
then choose “Monitor + Notebook”.
4. After you follow these steps, you should be able to see the same desktop image on your PC or
Notebook as well as on the presentation screen.
AVerVision PL50 can’t detect the inserted USB flash drive.
Make sure the USB flash drive switch is set to the left and check if the USB flash drive is properly
inserted.
I have connected the mouse/AP20T and switch to playback single image preview or
in camera freeze mode but still the Annotation control panel doesn’t show up.
1. Check the USB switch on the rear panel is set to
.
2. Make sure the resolution setting is set to the annotation supported resolution setting of either
1024 x 768, 1280 x 720, or 1280 x 1024.
The recorded video on MAC with the bundled software doesn’t have sound.
Due to some limitation, we recommend recording the audio directly from the MAC MIC IN port for
better audio quality.
