Projection on smartboard is black/blue or projection on laptop screen is black

If you have a problem with the projection on the smartboard showing black but you can see it on your laptop screen, this could be resolved by pressing and holding the windows logo button on your keyboard and then pressing the letter P. This will bring up the option to select DUPLICATE. Keep tapping the P to move to DUPLICATE.

Another thing you can check is the document camera. Please make sure that there is power to the camera otherwise you will not be able to project. If you can't turn it on chances are your projection will not work either.

Another option would be to go to START, Programs, Accessories, Connect to a projector and click DUPLICATE:
