• Unplug the AC power adapter from the AC outlet
when it will not be used for a long period of time. To
disconnect the AC power adapter, pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Do not open the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified
personnel only.
• Be sure that nothing metallic comes into contact with
the metal parts of the AC power adapter. If it does, a
short circuit may occur and the unit may be
damaged.
Operation
• Do not place the units in a location where it is:
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Vibrating
• Do not apply mechanical shock or drop the units.
• The units become warm during the use, but this does
not indicate a malfunction.
• Avoid exposing any part of the receiver ’s light
receiver to strong rays such as direct sunlight or
inverter fluorescent lamp rays or to another infrared
ray source such as a remote commander.
• Do not place any obstructions between the
transmitter and receiver, or the visual and sound will
disappear.
• Do not use this system with another infrared ray
transmitter such as cordless headphones or two pairs
of this system at the same time.
The signals may become mixed.
On cleaning and care
• Clean the units with a soft cloth slightly moistened
with water or mild detergent solution.
• Do not use alcohol, benzine or thinner to clean the
units, as they may mar the finish.

• Select the input of the receiver with the input selector on
the TV.
• If the angle of the transmitter or receiver is adjusted past
the movable range as illustrated, it can cause a
malfunction.
• Do not cover the light emitter or receiver of the
transmitter or the receiver with your hand, etc.
• The infrared rays will not penetrate walls or opaque
glass. Therefore, the infrared receiver must be used
within the “in sight” area of the transmitter.
• The brightness of the transmitter ’s light emitter is not
necessarily stabilized. This is not a malfunction and does
not affect the infrared coverage distance.
• Noise and beats appears when the transmitter and the
receiver are positioned too close.
