Do you offer helpful tips for using the Crayola Digital Light Designer
We hope the following tips help you enjoy hours of fun with the Digital Light Designer! Troubleshooting tips if the unit is not functioning as expected: 1. Do you have new, fresh batteries and are they installed correctly? 2. Is the unit being used on a flat, hard, level surface? The switch underneath must be engaged. 3. Does the Red LED on the wand light up? If not, check the batteries are in properly. (new) 4. If you cannot get past the main menu screen, turn off nearby lights in the room or move out of direct sunlight. Strong outside or indoor light can interfere with the operation of the unit. 5. The wand is similar to a remote. It needs to be aimed rather than held like a pencil. It works from about an inch away, when with the light beam on or tap wand directly on the dome surface. 6. When the unit is turned on, the unit cycles the colours line by line. You can interrupt this process by tapping on the dome. If you don’t see the coloured lines, something in the room is causing interference. 7. You cannot draw on the top of the dome, only the sides. 8. To rotate the displayed image, hold the stylus on the dock (the 2 white lines near the base). The lines will turn red, then blue. When the lines turn blue, move the stylus along the dock to rotate the images around the Digital Light-Designer. 9. There are 3 menus available, however, only 2 appear at first. 10. Two wands CANNOT be used at the same time. Two wands cause issues similar to having lights on in the room. 11. What type of adapter are you using? USE ONLY AC ADAPTERS WITH MATCHING SPECIFICATIONS. AC ADAPTER SPECIFICATIONS INPUT: 100 – 120VAC, 50 – 60 Hz, 0.8A OUTPUT: 6.0VDC, 2.0A, 12.0W/VA

In 1900, prior to the introduction of Crayola Crayons, we produced black marking crayons. Today these are known as Staonal brand Marking Crayons and are used in many industrial settings. These crayons were created with dry carbon black and different waxes. The first box of Crayola Crayons was produced in 1903 as an 8 count box. It sold for a nickel and contained the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. We provide extensive information about Crayola and our products on our sites. A history timeline can be found on the Crayola.com web site at our history.
In 1903, we introduced the first box of 8 Crayola Crayons and sold them for a nickel. Included were the same 8 colours that are found in an 8‑pack today: red yellow blue green orange brown violet (purple) black.
In 1958 the box of 64 CRAYOLA Crayons was introduced. It was the first package to include a built-in sharpener design. We continue to manufacture this package design today in the 64 and 96 count Crayola Crayon package.
In 1993 we conducted a poll to find out the most popular colours in America. Blue was voted the most popular CRAYOLA Crayon colour. Rounding the top ten were red, violet, green, carnation pink, black, turquoise blue, blue green, periwinkle and magenta. In 2000, we did another Crayola Colour Census, and blue again reigns as number one!
