MimioTeach

A flashing amber means the Mimio device is looking to connect to any USB hub—it recognizes that there is a hub available to communicate to. If using Windows, open MimioStudio and go to Tools > Settings > Classroom Devices. If using Mac, go to the Apple header and select Notebook > Preferences > Classroom Devices to make sure that MimioTeach or Vote is connected. If it is not connected (might show available), then highlight the MimioTeach and click Connect. If you are successful re-pairing the Mimio wireless components, the power/status LED on the Mimio devices should turn to solid green. This initiates the pairing process. A flashing green means that the USB hub is plugged in and recognizes the MimioTeach or Vote because it was connected to it before but mimiosys.exe has been terminated, and once MimioStudio is open you will get a solid green. If you continue to have issues, please reach out to Technical Support for additional troubleshooting.

If a MimioVote handset shows EE with other characters (click here for an example), this means the handset’s ID has been assigned to a different handset. This is normal. To correct the display, place the handset in the MimioVote tray and the correct ID will be assigned to the handset.

If a MimioVote handset shows EE with no other symbols (click here for an example), it means:

  • The handset was removed during a firmware update. Replace the handset to the MimioVote tray and the message will be cleared.
  • The handset is incapable of successfully installing a firmware update. When this failure occurs, the handset will attempt to download firmware every time it is placed in the station. However, it will always display EE when removed from the station—even when the firmware download has been allowed to complete. This will indicate that the handset will need to be replaced and you should reach out to Technical Support for warranty verification. Click here to contact Technical Support for a replacement handset.

The MimioVote system requires the MimioHub wireless receiver, which comes standard with the system. The receiver integrates automatically with the MimioVote system, allowing it to send data instantly to your computer.

The remote has a range of up to 9 m (30 ft). In addition, you don’t have to ensure that there is a line of sight between the remote and the MimioTeach device, because the MimioVote system uses radio frequency technology.

Try to isolate the issue to the specific handset by making sure that another Vote handset placed in the same spot is working correctly. If another Vote handset is working correctly on that same spot, then we have isolated the issue to the specific handset. Next, unscrew the Vote handset and check to see if the battery has become loose. If the battery is in place and the handset still has a blinking backlight, then contact Technical Support to inquire about an RMA.

The life of the replaceable batteries is typically 3 years. A full charge of a unit that has lost all power (due to being left out of the charging tray for a long time) takes about 10 to 12 hours. Teachers can easily recharge the units in their tray overnight.

Radio frequency technology offers a major advantage over infrared frequency as it does not require that there be a line of sight between the remote and the MimioTeach device. There are other benefits as well, including:

  • Students can comfortably hold and operate their remotes.
  • Students can effectively operate their remotes from anywhere in the classroom.
  • Teachers can connect and position their receivers to best suit their environment.

Other wireless devices, such as microwave ovens or wireless routers, do not normally interfere with the MimioVote response system, but it is possible. MimioStudio software has the ability to choose a different channel whenever it detects channel interference. However, this is an automatic feature and there is no way to manually change this within the software.
