I have the App open and the projector is connected, why can’t I play the story?

  1. Have you launched your story by placing the Press N' Play on the screen?
  2. Is your tablet responding to the Press N' Play?
    • If not, make sure you are holding the Press N' Play with two fingers holding the black pads on each side of the vertical piece.
    • Or you may need to enter the code labeled on the back of the Press N' Play. (This feature is available for Android and will soon be available for iOS users).
  3. Have you downloaded the story content from the App Store? You need to do this first before the Press N' Play can activate the story automatically
    • To do this, you must connect to the internet and download from the app store.

My projector seems to be frozen, what can I do?

  1. Slide the Switch on the bottom to the off position for 20 seconds then back to on.

The story animation and swiping controls are not stable or seem to jump around. How do I fix that?

  1. This usually happens when the tablet is moving out of range or there is some external interference affecting the streaming content.
    • Solution: Move the tablet closer to the projector. The Projector can connect with the tablet from approximately 10 feet away.

I am touching the screen with the Press N' Play but nothing is happening. What can I do?

  1. Be sure to hold the Press N' Play by the two black contact pads when you touch your Press N' Play to the screen of your tablet.
  2. You may not have downloaded the story yet from the app. Remember, you must NOT be connected to the projector network, and you must be connected to the internet to download a story for the first time.
  3. Make sure your tablet does not have a screen protector on as this will interfere with the connection between the Press N' Play and the tablet.

Why does the projector time out and go to sleep?

  1. Your 3G connection may be running, in which case it means there is no “WIFI” and the projector will time out and go to sleep. Disconnect your 3G.
  2. You may have walked out of range of the projector. In this case, the projector will go to sleep.
  3. Your smart device may have powered down or gone to sleep. (The projector goes to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity). If this happens in the middle of a story, the projector will  sleep and then shut down. You should power up your smart device again.
