Typical Issues for ACK105


  • No sound – This isn’t too common but sometimes a user has muted the computer, then forgot to un-mute it. The next user does not realise this and cranks the sound up, before fixing any sound issue make sure the sound is down towards 20, you don’t want to blow speakers if it is simply on mute. Other issues is that the sound cable is unplugged, or in the wrong jack. If all else fails it could be a sound card issue or blown speakers, best way to test is to bring a DVD and run it in the DVD/VHS player, if there is sound you rule out a speaker issue.
  • Can’t find mouse/keyboard/Remote – Since users sometimes close the doors and forget about putting equipment away, sometimes it is much easier for themselves to simply place the forgotten equipment behind the TV, rather than open the cabinet and put them back the correct way. Other places are in the other side of the cabinet (the door without the lock), or the equipment has been stolen (very rare).
  • Why are there 2 DVD players? – The language department needed a multi-region DVD player installed in this classroom. The Philips unt will play any region DVD disk that is put into it. The input for that DVD player is AV2.
