Yes, we have a Facebook page and we invite you to like us, please!
This page is mostly for those common mistakes everyone makes at one time or another. Aviva Rental Systems also believes in educating our clients to become the best presenters and meeting planners in the business. There has been a time or two we have been stumped only to find a surge protector wasn't turned on. Sometimes it 's just so simple we just smile and show the next slide
#1 Issue: All the equipment is turned on; however, there is nothing being projected on to the screen.
A. You may need to toggle the image from your laptop to the LCD projector. Hold down the Fn key and the corresponding function key (it is usually is F5 or F8 or may have a picture of a screen/ box or say CRT/ LCD) then release. Do this 3-4 times until the picture is on the screen and the laptop.
B. Press the input or source button on the projector until it reads Computer 1 or RGB 1 on the screen. Make sure the cable is attached from your laptop to the input ( computer 1) on the LCD projector and not plugged into the LCD monitor out. Retry toggling with the function key ( step A)
#2 Issue: My video embedded in my PowerPoint presentation is not showing up on the screen.
Solution: Your computer can only show the video on one screen at a time, so toggle the image to the LCD only using the function key mentioned above.
#3 Issue: I'm getting a slight tin sound or feed back from my lavaliere/lapel microphone.
Solution: Never cover the microphone with a name badge, hand, or clothing (collar, tie, or pocket). Never stand directly in front of any speaker. You should always be behind the speaker or to the side. The closer to the speaker you get the more probable feedback becomes.
Q: Do you rent single microphones to individuals?
A: Yes, we do. If your event is planning on having speakers as well as playing music, AVIVA can also provide you with a mixer or DI box to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Q: Do you rent projectors that will work with my Mac?
A: Yes, AVIVA carries all types of Mac adapters and yes there are quite a few of them.
Q: Can I pick up my equipment the day before my event?
A: Yes, if you are located in or near Richmond, VA, you can pick up equipment from our central office at 1609 Rhoadmiller Street, Richmond, VA 23220. Our Richmond warehouse is located behind the baeball Diamond off of Hermitage Road. We are located four parking lots east of the Richmond SPCA.
Q: I have a projector but I think it needs a new bulb? Do you sell bulbs for projectors?
A:Yes, AVIVA is an authorized reseller of lamps and bulbs from Professional Lamps, LLC.
