WARNING
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this
appliance to rain or moisture.
The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or
slashing and that no objects filled with liquids, such as
vases, shall be placed on the apparatus.
The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the
ventilation openings with items, such as newspapers,
table-cloths, curtains, etc.
No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles,

IMPORTANT
Since CD circuitry may cause interference to other
radio tuners nearby, switch this unit off when not in use
or move it away from the affected radio tuner.
This class[B] digital apparatus complies with
Canadian ICES-003.
WARNING
NOTE: This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from the digital apparatus
as set out in the Radio Interference Regulations of Industry in Canada. 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. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television (which can be
determined by turning the equipment off), the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
! Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
! Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
! Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
! Consult the dealer or an experienced radio / TV technician for help.
AUTOMATIC DEGAUSSING
All color television receivers are sensitive to magnetic influences, usually caused by either moving the receiver from
one place to another or using certain electrical appliances near the receiver. The residual magnetism as it is called,
sometimes causes distortion which gives rise to “blotchy” areas of color in the picture. To avoid these effects the
receiver incorporates an automatic degaussing circuit which operates for a short while immediately each time the
receiver is switched on using the main switch. This circuit removes any residual magnetism in the metal parts of the
picture tube and therefore ensures that each time the receiver is switched on. If the set is moved or faced in a
different direction, the main switch must be switched off for at least 10 minutes in order for the automatic degaussing
circuit to operate properly.

Please use the provided CDG disc to test the connections. The lyrics and music of songs on the disc will be
displayed on the Singing Machine.
COMMON WAYS TO CONFIGURE YOUR TV OR VCR
If you have never used the video input RCA jack or coaxial cable on your TV/VCR you should consult your
TV/VCR user guide. If you don’t have your manual, please contact your TV/VCR manufacturer for information
either by phone or by viewing their website for online assistance. They will be able to tell you very quickly how to
configure your TV or VCR to display the video connection.
The three most common ways to set up the TV/VCR are:
1) A ‘Video’ button may be on the TV/VCR or on the remote control. Pressing ‘Video’ may display the input from
your Singing Machine.
2) Try looking for a ‘Video’ channel between the regular channels on your TV/VCR. Do this by setting the channel
on the TV/VCR to channel 2 then pressing the ‘Down’ channel button to see if there is a ‘Video In’ or ‘Line In’
between the lowest channel and the highest channel on your system.
3) The configuration may also be located in the set-up menu on the TV/VCR. Look for a section on ‘Input
Selection’ where you might be able to choose the input source i.e.’Cable/Ant.’, ‘Video 1’, ‘Line In’ or ‘Video In’.

In addition to all of the terminology associated with consumer electronics products, a few additional terms are used
almost exclusively in karaoke. These terms are meant to familiarize you with the world of Karaoke. The features
listed below may not necessarily pertain to the particular model Singing Machine that you have. The following are
some brief explanations of karaoke terms:
Echo:
Echo adds depth and resonance to a singer's voice without affecting the music. This echo is produced by creating
minor controlled feedback in the singer's voice.
Multiplex:
Our multiplex recordings contain 2 copies of the same song. One version is a stereo recording of the song without
the lead singer. The second version is recorded with the music and background vocals on the left channel and the
lead singer recorded on the right channel. This ‘split track’ recording allows you to control the volume of the lead
singer by adjusting the balance control. You can sing a duet with the lead singer or use the lead singer as a guide as
you learn the song, gradually fading them out with the balance control until you are able to sing the song on your
own.
Auto Voice Control (A.V.C.):
When the AVC function is activated, the vocals on a multiplex recordings are eliminated as soon as the singer
begins singing into the microphone. When the singer stops singing, the vocals on the multiplex recording are
automatically re-activated. This useful function is used primarily during practice sessions while a singer is learning a
song. Please note that the AVC function only works with multiplex recording and not with standard audio recordings.
Key Controller:
Key Controller changes the key of the CD/CDG, MP3, DVD, Cassette music to adjust to the singer’s voice.
CDG:
This is an acronym for Compact Disc plus Graphics. You will also see variations CD+G, and CD+Graphics. This is a
regular audio CD with information stored on a data track simultaneous to music. In laymen's terms, CDG has a
video output for simple graphics (not full motion video). In the case of karaoke, the graphics function is used to store
song lyrics, and display the lyrics in synch with music. In most cases, CDG software displays lyrics which change
color as they are to be sung. A regular television is all that is required to display CDG lyrics.
Standard audio discs and cassette tapes will not display lyrics on your TV. Audio CDs do not contain the software
necessary to display lyrics.
