Prevent object and liquid entry. Never spill liquid of any kind on the video display unit. Liquid
increases the risk of electrical shock and damage to the product.
The unit is not shock-resistant. Do not use Explorer Compact as a hammer and avoid high
impact resultant from things such as dropping the unit from height
Do not immerse camera handle or LCD screen in water. Avoid moisture, and store product in
a dry place. Such measures reduce the risk of electric shock and damage. The lens and the tube
are water resistant when the unit is fully assembled, but the LCD screen and handle are not.
Do not use the camera if condensation forms inside the lens. Let the water evaporate before
using again.
Turn off the system if it is not in use.
Attention should be given to the environmental aspects of battery disposal.
Remove the batteries when cleaning the unit.
Remove the batteries before storing the unit for a long time.
When necessary, REPLACE ALL FOUR (4) BATTERIES in this unit with new ones, not one (1) or
two (2) batteries at a time.
Use only the size and type of battery specified.
Be sure to install the battery with the correct polarity as indicated in the battery compartment.
Properly dispose of batteries. Exposure to high temperatures can cause batteries to e
xplode,
so do not dispose of in a fire. Place tape over the terminals to prevent direct contact with other
objects.
Some countries have regulations concerning battery disposal. Please follow all applicable
regulations.
