Ok, my SmartBoard projector has sounded like there is a cricket living inside of it since December! I have put in requests to the tech department in the hopes that it would be fixed. They changed the bulb and then I had a purple haze across the top 10 inches of the board. <!--grumpy-->

I was really hoping it would be fixed when I returned for the new school year. I went in today, and guess what! Crickets!!!!! My P won't spend more than 5 minutes in my room (not a bad thing) because of the sound, but they still haven't fixed it. In the meantime, every room without a projector has gotten a projector this summer from our old high school. So, where's my fixed projector? :confused:

Well, still a couple more weeks, so I'll keep my fingers crossed! :rolleyes:

Sounds like your tech dept needs help. Can they contact the distributor? I have had great support that way. But, then, I'm the only one with a SmartBoard at my school because I pursued a grant... so I have more freedom to contact them directly.

I completely agree! Our tech department is a little backwards and is headed by a super controlling woman. Nothing happens without her approval, and god help you if she doesn't like you!
