PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE HEALTH AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS BOOKLET INCLUDED WITH THE
NINTENDO GAMECUBE SYSTEM OR GAMES BEFORE USING THIS ACCESSORY. THIS BOOKLET
CONTAINS IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION.

The Nintendo GameCube WaveBird Wireless Controller allows you to play games on
your Nintendo GameCube without the inconvenience of long cords stretching between
the player and the video game console.

like the original Nintendo GameCube Controller.
Remove the battery cover on the back of the WaveBird and insert two AA batteries as
shown (Illustration 1). Be sure to insert the negative (-) ends first. Replace the battery
cover.
NOTE: Fresh high quality alkaline batteries will supply up to 100 hours of use,
however this will vary depending on surrounding temperature, type of game play,
type of battery and how long the WaveBird is left on when not in use.
Removing Batteries
Remove the cover on the back of the WaveBird and remove two AA batteries. Remove
the positive (+) ends first. Replace the battery cover.

WARNING
BATTERY LEAKAGE:
Leakage of battery acid can cause personal injury as well as damage to your WaveBird
Controller. If battery leakage occurs, thoroughly wash the affected skin and clothes.
Keep battery acid away from your eyes and mouth. Leaking batteries may make
popping sounds.
To avoid battery leakage:
• Do not mix used and new batteries (replace all batteries at the same time).
• Do not mix alkaline with any other type of battery (carbon zinc, nickel cadmium, etc).
• Do not mix different brands of batteries.
• Use only alkaline or carbon zinc batteries. Do not use nickel cadmium (nicad) or
nickel metal hydride (nimh) batteries.
• Do not leave used batteries in the WaveBird Controller. When the batteries are
losing their charge, the Power Indicator will become dim. When this happens,
promptly replace all
used batteries with fresh new batteries.
• Do not leave batteries in the WaveBird Controller for long periods of non-use.
• Do not leave the Power Switch ON after the batteries have lost their charge.
When you finish using the WaveBird Controller, always slide the Power Switch OFF.
• Do not recharge the batteries.
• Do not put the batteries in backwards. Make sure that the positive (+) and
negative (-) ends are facing in the correct directions. Insert the negative end first.
When removing batteries, remove the positive end first.
• Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.

Make sure that the receiver is fully inserted into the correct controller socket on the

Make sure that the power is ON, and that the Power Indicator is lit. If the power is
ON but the Power Indicator is not lit or is dim, try installing fresh new batteries.
Make sure that the channel settings match for each pair of controllers/receivers that
are connected to the console.
Try setting the controller/receiver to a different channel if the operation seems
inconsistent or incorrect.
If you are using more than one set of controllers/receivers, make sure that they are
not set to the same channel.
Reset the control stick/analog button alignment by following the procedure
described earlier, if the game control seems inconsistent or incorrect.
Make sure you are 20 feet (6 meters) or less from the receiver.
Make sure when you are playing, that the top of the controller is pointed in the
direction of the receiver.
Check for interference from radio frequency devices such as cordless phones,
microwave devices, or wireless LANs (local area networks). Try removing the
source of interference or move the game system away from any potential
interference or try turning off the source of interference if possible. Try changing the
channel settings on the controller/receiver pair.
