Link Status
Data Transmission
The wireless mimio module and receiver are programmed at the
factory and are packaged as a mated pair to work “out of the
box” without user intervention*. They are an exclusive pair of
components that will only communicate to one another. This
allows for more than one wireless mimio system to co-exist in the
same environment without causing confusion over which
wireless module communicates to which wireless receiver.
Since the wireless module and wireless receiver are designed to
work exclusively as a pair, you cannot casually interchange a
wireless module from one wireless system with a wireless
receiver from another wireless system and expect it to work;
mixed components will not be able to communicate unless they
have been programmed as a pair. A wireless module can only be
paired with one wireless receiver at any given point in time; you
cannot program one wireless module to work with multiple
wireless receivers and vice versa.
Mating the wireless module and receiver:
If you own multiple wireless mimio systems and mistakenly get
the wireless module and receiver components mixed together,
you can manually re-program any pair of wireless module and
receiver components to work exclusively together through a
learning process. The learning process is described in the steps
listed below.
Link Status
Green: A wireless link is established between the unit and the PC.
Amber: There is no wireless link between the unit and the PC.
Refer to the Troubleshooting section.
Flashing amber and green: Unit is in a learning process**.
Data Transmission
Slow flashing green: System is idle.
Fast flashing green: mimio stylus pen is in use.
Off: No data is being communicated between the unit and the PC.
Refer to the Troubleshooting section.
* Refer to mimio Xi User Guide for more information.

your PC.
3. Using a paper clip, press the teach button on the wireless
receiver to initiate the learning process.
4. Press the recessed learn button on the wireless module with
the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip to complete the
learning process.
5. The Link Status LED
will start flashing amber and green
while the learning process is underway. Once the wireless
module and receiver are mated, the Link Status LED will
turn to a solid green color to identify the 2 components
have been paired and that a wireless connection is
If the Link Status LED
on the mimio wireless module is
amber, a wireless connection cannot be made between the
mimio wireless module and the wireless receiver. Please try the
following steps to establish a wireless connection:

Description of problem
1. Ensure the PC is powered and turned on.
2. Ensure the wireless module is plugged into an available USB
port on your PC.
3. Ensure the mimio Xi capture bar is powered on and has a
green power LED. If the power LED is amber, replace the
four AA batteries in the mimio Xi capture bar.
4. Move the mimio Xi with wireless module closer to the
computer with the wireless receiver connected to it.
If you still cannot establish a wireless connection after
following the four steps listed above, try unplugging the
receiver USB cable from the PC and then reinserting in the
receiver USB cable into the PC. If this does not help, then
follow the steps outlined in the Learning Process section to rebind the wireless module and wireless receiver.
If completing the Learning Process does not result in a wireless
connection, please contact our Technical Support department
