Using PowerPoint Presenter

Getting Started

The PowerPoint Presenter RF allows you to control slides in any presentation or slide show software.  It also has a built in laser pointer.   The kit includes a remote with laser pointer, a receiver, a USB cable, and a case.  The PowerPoint Presenter RF uses radio frequency technology, so there is no need to point the remote at the receiver to control your slides.  The maximum operating distance between the remote and the receiver is 150 feet.

System Requirements

The only system requirements are USB compatibility.  The PowerPoint Presenter is plug and play compatible with Mac OS 8 or higher and Windows 98, NT, 2000, XP or higher.

Connecting the receiver to the Computer:

Using a USB connection (Mac OS 8 or higher and Windows 98, NT, 2000, or higher.)

  1. Turn on the computer and let it fully boot up.
  2. Plug one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the receiver.
  3. Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB port on your computer.

The computer should automatically recognize the receiver as a new hardware after about 5 to 15 seconds, depending on the computer.  Follow the instructions for installing new hardware (you may need to load the necessary USB driver from your operating system disk).  Once your computer has installed the receiver as new hardware, it will not need to run through the same steps again.

Using the Remote:

After connecting the receiver properly, simply start your presentation or slide show software, put it in slide show mode, and press the remote’s larger advance button to advance the slides and the smaller reverse button to go back to the previous slide.   Press the smallest button to activate the laser pointer.  (Avoid direct eye exposure to the laser beam as a small amount of laser radiation is emitted from the aperture.)

Check the cable connections

Verify that the LED on the remote comes on solid when the advance or reverse button is pushed and that the laser pointer is at full brightness when the laser button is pushed.  If not, replace the battery.

Verify that the correct operating system driver is loaded on your computer.  Try reloading the driver, or try unplugging the receiver, waiting 10 seconds, and them plugging it back in.
