Maintenance and Support

What is the typical life of the MimioProjector bulb?
In Normal mode: 3000 hours. In Eco mode: 4000 hours.

Can the bulb be replaced without dismounting the projector?
Yes. Bulb replacement is accomplished from the side, without dismounting the projector. It usually takes less than five minutes.

Where can I obtain a replacement bulb?
Mimio resellers can provide replacement bulbs.

Does the MimioProjector device keep track of the hours of bulb use?
Yes. The MimioProjector menu displays bulb hours separately for Normal and Eco modes. It also provides a Lamp Life Reminder.

Can the dust filters be replaced without dismounting the projector?
The two MimioProjector dust filters can be removed from the top, without dismounting the projector. Replacement usually takes less than five minutes. They can be cleaned with a vacuum; please see the User Guide for specific instructions.

How often will the dust filters need to be cleaned?
The filter cleaning schedule depends on the operating environment — dust filters are usually needed only in very dusty environments. One of the advantages of DLP projection technology is that it is a sealed system. The filters can be cleaned with a vacuum; please see the User Guide.

Does the MimioProjector device keep track of the hours between filter cleanings?
Yes. The MimioProjector menu displays filter hours. It also provides a Filters Reminder.

What is the warranty for the MimioProjector device?
The MimioProjector device comes with a 2-year general warranty and a 90-day warranty on the bulb.

Does the MimioProjector support the MimioCapture™ ink recorder?
The MimioCapture recorder works in tandem with only the MimioTeach™ interactive whiteboard and the MimioBoard™ interactive whiteboard.

Does the MimioProjector include MimioStudio software?
The interactive MimioProjector configurations include MimioStudio software. When a non-interactive MimioProjector device is upgraded to interactive, the IR Module includes MimioStudio software.

How many interactive pens can the 280I pen-interactive model support simultaneously?
The 280I can support up to 10 interactive pens simultaneously. The 280I is delivered with two interactive pens; additional pens can be ordered through your Mimio reseller.

Are the interactive pens used with the MimioProjector 280I device compatible with the interactive pens used with the MimioProjector 240i device?
The interactive pens used with the MimioProjector 280I device produce a different wavelength of infrared light and are not compatible with the interactive pens used in the MimioProjector 240i device.

How many touch points can the 280T simultaneously support?
The 280T can support up to 10 simultaneous touch points.

Why are the interactive pens provided with the 280I called “pens” and those provided with the MimioProjector 280T called “styli”?
The naming convention of “interactive pen” and “stylus” exists to differentiate between the two very different devices. The interactive pens provided with the 280I interactive projector are battery-powered, active devices that emit infrared light when pressed against the projection surface. The stylus provided with the 280T touch projector is a passive device – essentially the plastic equivalent of a human finger.
