Fixing PowerPoint PPT files that display incorrectly from a memory card
If certain elements in a PowerPoint PPT slide are missing or displayed incorrectly, you
should check these possible solutions:
1
•
•
If the slide includes large graphic images or uses several fonts, the slide may
require more memory than available in the projector. Try using fewer fonts, or try
using fonts that use less memory (you can check font file sizes by looking in the
font folder on the memory card). Or try reducing the memory size of the graphics
(see the next topic below).
Certain PowerPoint features are not supported while presenting a PowerPoint PPT
file from a memory card. Try editing the slide to use supported features (see the
second topic below).
Reducing large graphics in a PowerPoint file
A large graphic image may not display in a PowerPoint presentation shown from a
memory card due to memory requirements on the projector. You can use an editor to
create a smaller image file. Or you can try the following steps in PowerPoint to reduce
the size of an image.
1. Right-click the graphic, then select Copy.
2. Click Edit > Paste Special, and select the option to paste in PNG format.
3. Delete the old image.
An alternative solution is creating a mobile presentation PDB file.
Selecting PowerPoint features for a memory card presentation
When you show a PC-free presentation from a memory card, the projector has available
only the information stored on the memory card—it does not have access to the Microsoft
PowerPoint application. Although the projector provides most of the popular features of
PowerPoint 2002, not all features are supported during a memory card presentation. To
avoid unexpected problems, select features that are supported for either a PowerPoint
PPT file or a mobile presentation PDB file. See the table of supported PowerPoint
features at the end of this document.
Creating mobile presentations for a handheld organizer or memory card
You can use HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go to create mobile presentations from
PowerPoint. In some situations, a mobile presentation you create may omit certain
PowerPoint elements, such as special fonts, vertically oriented text, or arrowheads. If this
occurs, try choosing a lower animation setting in the Wireless Presenter-to-Go creator
window.
Creating mobile presentations from portrait documents
If you want to create a mobile presentation (PDB file) by printing from an application,
you should check the page setup first. If the page has portrait orientation (vertical layout),
you should do one of the following to avoid losing the bottom of all pages in your
presentation:
• Before printing, change the document to landscape orientation (horizontal layout),
or
• In the print window, change the printer properties to use portrait orientation
(vertical layout).
2
Choosing a memory card for presentations
The projector supports several standard types of memory cards, which you can connect to
the CompactFlash slot or to a USB port. Such cards are available from HP and many
other manufacturers. However, you may find that some memory cards or adapters do not
work properly with the projector, such as some USB 2.0 devices. If you have a memory
card or adapter that does not work with the projector, try a different brand or type of card.
For example, the HP USB digital drive with SD memory card (DG921B) is supported.
Viewing images on a memory card
If you are viewing a picture presentation from a memory card, certain problems may
cause a picture to be shown as "X", a missing picture:
• The image is larger than 3.5 MB or requires more memory than available on the
projector. Check file sizes, and edit large images or convert them to JPG format
so they are smaller than 3.5 MB.
• The image file is not a valid JPG, BMP, or PNG file.
• The file name contains any of the characters \ / : * ? " < > , | [ ] ; =
Locating ports on the enhancement module
The USB ports on some enhancement modules may be covered by a label. If you want to
use these ports, remove the label. Note that use of the audio port is not supported.
Increasing security on the projector
The projector includes several security options for preventing unauthorized access. You
can set up all of these security settings using the projector's embedded web server. The
first two options are required to secure the projector.
• Admin password. In Networking > Admin. Account you can set a password that
prevents unauthorized access to most settings in the embedded web server. This
password protects all other security settings below.
• SNMP community names. In Networking > SNMP you can specify secure
community names for read-only and read-write access to the embedded SNMP
server.
• Wireless Presenter password. In Networking > Wireless Presenter you can set a
password that prevents unauthorized network presentations via wired and wireless
connections.
• WEP encryption and shared mode authentication. In Networking > Wireless
Settings you can set an encryption key and key index, then use them to
authenticate wireless connections and encrypt wireless data.
• Access control. In Networking > Access Control you can defines ranges of IP
addresses that are authorized to access the projector.
Using a wireless network
While you are using HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go, you have access to only one wireless
network: the infrastructure or ad-hoc network that connects to the projector. If you use a
different wireless network to connect to other computers or to the internet, you do not
3
have access to those connections whenever HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go is running. This
software disables wireless network services while it is running and restores those services
when it closes. If you want to change to your normal wireless network or view available
networks, you should exit HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go first.
Making a connection with a personal firewall
If your computer has personal firewall protection installed, you can still make a network
connection to a projector.
• If you disable the firewall software, available projectors are listed when you start
HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go.
• If you do not disable the firewall software, no projectors are listed, but you can
click Other Projector, enter the projector's network settings, and make a
connection.
Making a direct network connection
If you need to make a direct network connection between a computer and the projector,
you may need to use a cross-over network cable, not a standard network cable. You
might need such a connection when you are upgrading firmware without having access to
a standard network. If you make such a connection, you must configure the network
settings on the computer and projector.
• On the computer, open the properties for the network connection and edit the
TCP/IP settings. Disable the automatic addressing (DHCP) and set or write down
the IP address of the computer. For example, you could set the IP address to
10.2.3.4.
• On the projector, open the on-screen menu and go to Setup > Network. Disable
the DHCP option, then set the IP address to a value that differs from the computer
address in the 4th field (assuming the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0). For
example, you could set the IP address to 10.2.3.5.
Setting up simultaneous wireless and wired connections
If you want to set up the projector for both wired and wireless connections, you should
try to have the wired IP address and wireless IP address on different network subnets.
This means the access point and the projector would not be connected to the same section
of the network. You can confirm this with your network administrator.
If you do not have access to two subnets, both projector connections may not be available
in Wireless Presenter-to-Go. However, you should be able to connect to the projector and
make a presentation.
Presenting from a Pocket PC Organizer
After you install HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go software on a Pocket PC handheld
organizer, you have the option of showing the organizer display on the projector screen.
• To show the organizer display, start the Wireless Mirror program, select the
projector you want to connect to, then tap Connect. To remove the Wireless Mirror
screen, tap Hide.
4
•
•
To change the projected image, open the Wireless Mirror program and select from
the options shown on the screen. For example, you can enlarge and rotate the
projected image.
To end the presentation, open the Wireless Mirror program, tap the wireless icon,
then tap Disconnect.
Support for Apple Macintosh
You can use an Apple Macintosh computer to manage the projector via the embedded
web server. The projector supports the Safari web browser provided with Mac OS X
version 10.2 and later, in addition to browsers listed in the user’s guide.
If you use Internet Explorer to upgrade the projector firmware, you should rename the
DLD file you download from the web so Internet Explorer can process it correctly. After
downloading the file, add “.binary” at end of DLD file name, then upgrade the projector.
Installing the HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go software
After you install HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go on a computer, if you get a presentation
error when starting your first presentation, try rebooting the computer. This step may be
required on some computers.
Upgrading the HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go software
In the future, HP may release new versions of HP Wireless Presenter-to-Go. They will be
available for download at the Support website listed at the beginning of this document.
Upgrading the projector firmware
If you use a network connection to upgrade the projector firmware, your browser must
not block popup windows. Popup windows are required for a successful upgrade.
