Home Support Projectors BrightLink Series Epson BrightLink 430i

My pen doesn't work. It lags, skips, or does not write on the projected image. What should I do?

    Try the following solutions:
    • Make sure nothing is blocking the signal between the pen and the interactive module on the projector.
    • Try holding the pen at a different angle so that your hand is not blocking the signal.
    • Make sure the pen batteries have enough power. If the light on the pen doesn't turn green when you press the button, you need to replace the batteries.
    • Make sure the Easy Interactive Driver is installed and running on your computer. You should see the pen icon in your taskbar (Windows) or in the Dock (Mac OS X).
    • Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescent lights. Make sure the projection surface and interactive module are not in direct sunlight or other sources of bright lighting.
    • Make sure the receiver window on the interactive module is clean and free from dust.
    • Make sure there is no interference from infrared devices such as infrared remote controls, infrared microphones, and infrared mice.
    • Make sure the location is free from electromagnetic interference from nearby equipment (such as electric motors or transformers).
    • For the best performance, connect your computer to the projector using an HDMI or VGA cable. Using a USB cable to display your computer image (USB Display) may slow interactive pen function.
    • Make sure you have calibrated the system. Try recalibrating.
    Note: You cannot use both pens at the same time.
