Use of batteries
• If this unit is not used for a long period of time or is used
only from an AC power source, remove all the batteries
to prevent potential damage due to possible battery
leakage.
• Insert so the poles (+ and –) match those in the remote
control.
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Do not use different types of batteries at the same time.
• Do not take apart or short circuit the batteries.
• Do not attempt to recharge alkaline or manganese batteries.
• Do not use batteries if the covering has been peeled off.
• Do not heat or expose to flame.
• Do not leave the battery(ies) in an automobile exposed
to direct sunlight for a long period of time with doors and
windows closed.
• Mishandling of batteries can cause electrolyte leakage,
which may cause a fire.
✒ Note
Before any function starts, the battery indicator may flash
although the batteries are not drained. The indicator will display
its current status when the unit is powered from the household
mains socket by using the AC mains lead.
Memory back-up
