22. Important Information Regarding Use of Video
Games, Computer, Captions or other Fixed Image
The extended use of a fixed image program material can
cause permanent “Shadow Image” on the LCD Panel.
The background image is viewable on normal programs
in the form of a stationary fixed image. Limit this type of
irreversible LCD panel deterioration by observing the
following steps:
a. Reduce the brightness/contrast setting to a minimum
viewing level.
b. DO NOT display the fixed image for extended periods
of time.
c. Turn the power off when not in actual use.
23. Safety Caution
The Lightning flash with the arrowhead symbol
within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert
the user to the presence of uninsulated
“ DANGEROUS VOLTAGE” within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk or electric shock to persons.
The Exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and maintenance
(servicing instructions in the literature
accompanying the product).
24. Federal Communication Commission Information
This Equipment has been tested and found to comply
with the limits for a TV Broadcast Receiver, pursuant to
Part15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. If this equipment does cause or
receive interference, which can be determined by turning
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one of the following
a. Reorient or relocate the TV antenna.
b. Increase the separation between the TV and other
c. Connect TV into separate outlet from equipment.
d. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
FCC Caution: Any changes or modifications not
expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the
user’s authority to operate this equipment
a. Receiver Location — Locate for comfortable viewing.
Avoid placing where sunlight or other bright light will
fall on the screen. Use of some types of florescent
lighting can reduce remote control transmitter range.
Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent internal
component failure. Keep away from areas of
excessive heat. To ensure optimum picture quality do
not position magnetic equipment nearby.
b. Cable Equipment — The audio/video connection
between components can be made with shielded
video and audio cable. For best performance, antenna
cables should utilize 75 Ohm coaxial shielded wire.
Cables are available from your dealer or electronic
supply store. Before you purchase any cables, be sure
you know what type of output and input connectors
your various components require. Also, determine the
length of cable you’ll need.
c. Optimum Quality picture — Turn off florescent lamps
near the LCD and place in a location not exposed to
outdoor light.

CAUTION: Adjust the battery stand within –5° ― +45°.
E. Rechargeable Battery
Rechargeable Battery Installation and Use
The unit utilizes a set of long-life Ni-MH batteries for a
portable power supply. Ni-MH batteries feature high
storage capacity and a low level of degradation. This
means that the Ni-MH batteries do not have “Memory
Effect” and thus can be recharged safely, regardless of
whether the battery is fully or only partially discharged.
Fully charge the battery prior to first use.
NOTE: Before you use the battery for the first time,
ensure that the battery has been charged for at least
eight hours. If you plan not to use the battery for an
extended period of time (one week or longer), we
recommend that you first fully charge the battery and
store it away properly. For longer periods of storage,
please recharge the battery at least once every two
months to keep the battery in optimum condition. Never
short the battery terminals, store the battery in a metal
container, or leave the battery in a humid or damp
environment. Store the battery in an airtight container
with desiccant or other dehumidifying agent. Each full
recharge takes approximately four hours and one full
charge can provide power to the unit for approximately
2 hours. During recharge, the red indicator will stay on.
Once fully recharged, the red light will turn off. At this
point you may remove the wall plug and stop charging.
Switch for rechargeable battery
1. Switch to “On” to charge and operate the product at
the same time.
2. Switch to “Off” can operate the unit but cannot be
NOTE: Always switch the unit off when it is not being
Precautions related to Battery Recharge
Warning: Do not recharge the battery using an in-car
DC adapter !
1. Once the battery is fully discharged, immediately
recharge (regardless of whether you plan to use
battery or not) in order to maximize battery life.
2. To charge the battery, remove the adapter cable from
the DC12V input jack on the right side of the main unit
and connect the power jack of the AC adapter directly
into the battery. The red charging indicator will light.
When the battery is fully charged, the indicator light
will turn off.
3. When recharging in your car, make sure the voltage is
lower than 16V, and 3 amps. If over, the value may
result in an electric shock or other hazards.
Using and Maintaining your Rechargeable
1. Use only the AC adapter included with the unit to
recharge the battery.
2. Recharge efficiency will degrade when environmental
temperatures drop below 50°F (10°C) or exceed 95°F
3. Remove the battery from the unit and store it properly
if you are not planning to use the unit for a month or
more. During this period, please recharge the battery
at least once every two months to avoid irreparable
damage to the battery. If the battery is attached to the
unit for a long period of time, recharge the battery at
least once every two weeks.
