Knoy 202 Table of Contents

The Knoy 202 Dean's Conference Room is a meeting facility equipped with videoconference cameras, a desktop computer, two laptop connections, audiovisual equipment, two large video displays, a projector, and other gear. It is used primarily by College of Technology faculty and staff.

ECN is developing documentation for using the equipment in this room. This page summarizes the articles under development and will eventually serve as a table of contents.

FAQ & troubleshooting

  • Projector lamp dead? Use the video displays instead (Flat Panel 1 and Flat Panel 2 on the Crestron)
  • The most reliable way to test this is to use the Crestron, select Flat Panel 1, and send the "Polycom" to it.

    If it is working and responsive, you should see the room with yourself in it on the screen, possibly with some text superimposed.

    If you do not see yourself, please look at the front of the cabinet next to the PC and look for a VCR-sized device that says "Polycom".

    Is there a light on it?

    • No - Open the small panel to the left of the light, and press the power button for 1 second. 

      1. In 3 minutes, the Polycom cameras should swivel, and you should see the room on the flat screen as mentioned above.

      2. In 5 minutes, the speakerphone should be fully operational.  It might display the (incorrect) time on it before then, but will be unable to make/receive calls.

    • Yes -

      1. It might be asleep. 

        1. Open the small panel to the left of the light and press the power button for one second.

        2. You should see the room on the flat screen within a minute - if not, go to "It might be stuck/frozen" below

        3. The phone should now work to make/receive calls

      2. It might be stuck/frozen.

        1. Open the small panel to the left of the light.

        2. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.

        3. Press the power button for 1 second.

        4. In 3 minutes, the Polycom cameras should swivel, and you should see the room on the flat screen as mentioned above.

        5. In 5 minutes, the speakerphone should be fully operational.  It might display the (incorrect) time on it before then, but will be unable to make/receive calls.

If you cannot get it working with the above troubleshooting (or feel uncertain about the above troubleshooting), please let us know at purdue.edu/ecn/contactus or visit KNOY 365, 366, 367, or 369 and look for an ECN employee that can help.
