I am stuck in the Boston gate magic lantern puzzle in the PC version of Assassins Creed 3.

The one I'm talking about is the one farthest to the left. I know how you are supposed to solve the puzzle, the problem is I can't seem to see the symbols. I have all the other doors unlocked except for this one.

I mean instead of seeing this: enter image description here

I see it without the symbols. Pretty much what the door used to look like, almost like this enter image description here

but zoomed in and with the directions like you would normally get

Is it a glitch? If so, what can I do about it?

Do you have any details? What do you mean by you can't see the symbols? (It should look like this, video here.) – Schism Jan 7 '13 at 5:07
What platform are you playing on? – Shinrai Jan 7 '13 at 7:51
why didn't you post a screenshot while using the item to see the symbols and move them? – Samuele Mattiuzzo Jan 7 '13 at 10:16
You could try changing the options/filters, both in game and for the graphics card. Chances are that turning off an option will give you a lower quality effect that works. – Keith Jan 17 '13 at 12:04

I encountered this once on the PS3 version. Rebooting my system solved it for me. I'm not sure how saving on the PC version works--you might want to try leaving the sewers, saving, rebooting, then going back into the sewers to see if that fixes it.
