About the RCX Computer.
Before showing you how to transfer programs, it is important to become familiar with your RCX Computer.
There needs to be a clear line of sight between the Infer-Red transmitter and the Infra-Red Port at the top of the RCX Computer. - click on the RCX photo.
When you are ready to transmit your program, check the broad arrow at the top left of your program window. - see the movie.
If the arrow is broken, this indicates that there is an error or mistake in your program. Make sure you check your "wiring" first and that each icon is wired into the program.
Switch your Cart on - see photo and make sure Programming Slot 3, 4 or 5 is selected. - slots 1 and 2 are reserved for other programs. - You can change the programming slot being used by pressing the Program button (Prgm)
Then click the Transmit arrow shown in the movie. If you are successful you will hear three beeps. Then you are ready to run your program. Click here for instructions on running programs.
