Trouble shooting.

 

If the display is not working log on to the unit remotely through its ip using VNC or other client to determine if there are any error messages. Clear any error messages that might be there.

Close any power point and close the Xibo client. Try restarting the Xibo client it will take a few seconds for the power point presentation to start running.  If it error out on running the presentation do a full reboot of the unit and try again.

If the presentation still errors out an update to Windows may have re written a registry enter that you will need to fix before the power point will run properly.

Navigate to c:\o-Digitalsign on the computer and run “pp2” file ( this will modify the registry ) you should get some prompts warning you about modifying the registry just say ok and yes. Restart the xibo client and check that it is running normally.
