•Do not attempt to operate this unit, if it becomes damaged.
•This unit is intended for indoor use only, use of this product outdoors voids all warranties.
•During long periods of non-use, disconnect the unit’s main power.

Micro Hypnotic
Laser Warnings and Safety
The Micro Hypnotic contains high power laser devices internally. Do
not open the laser housing, due to the potential exposure to unsafe
levels of laser radiation. The laser power levels, if the unit is opened,
can cause instant blindness, skin burns and fires.
Micro Hypnotic
Laser Warnings and Safety
After setting up, and before public use, test laser to ensure proper
function. Do not use if any defect is detected. Do not use if laser
emits only one or two laser beams rather than dozens/hundreds, as
this could indicate damage to the diffraction grating optic, and could
allow emission of higher laser levels above Class 3R.
Do not point lasers at people or animals. Never look into the laser
aperture or laser beams.
The light source emitted from this product can potentially cause eye
injury if not set up and used properly. The light source emitted from a
laser is very different from any other light sources with which you may
be aware of. Laser light is thousands of times more concentrated
than any light from any other kind of light source. This concentration
of light can cause instant eye injuries, primarily by burning the retina
(the back of your eyeball contatining cells that are sensitive to light).
Even if you cannot feel “heat” from a laser beam, it can still potentially injure or blind you or your audience. Even very small amounts
of laser beam light are potentially hazardous even at long distances.
Laser eye injuries can be sustained faster than you can blink.
Do not point lasers in areas in which people can potentially get
exposed, such as uncontrolled balconies, etc.
Do not think that because this laser splits the laser beam into hundreds of beams and that the laser beam is scanned out in high
speed, that an individual laser beam is safe for eye exposure. This
laser uses dozens of milliwatts of laser power (Class 3B levels internally) before it splits into multiple beams (Class 3R levels). Many of
the individual beams are potentially hazardous to the eyes.
Do not use the laser if the housing is damaged, the housing is open,
or if the optics appear damaged in any way.
Do not that because the laser light is moving, it is safe. This is not
true. Nor, do the laser beams always move. Since eye injuries can
occur instantly, it is critical to prevent even the smallest possibility of
any direct eye exposure. In the laser safety regulation, it is not legal
to aim Class 3R lasers in areas which people can get exposed. This
is true even if it is aimed below people’s faces, such as on a dance
Do not operate the laser without first reading and understanding
all safety and technical data in this manual.
Always set up and install all laser effects so that all laser light is at
least 3 meters (9.8 feet) above the floor on which people can stand.
DJ® - www.americandj.com - Micro Hypnotic Instruction Manual Page 5
Do not point lasers at highly reflective surfaces, such as windows,
mirrors and shiny metal. Even laser reflections can be hazardous.
Never point a laser at aircraft, this is a federal offense.
Never point un-terminated laser beams into the sky.
Do not expose the output optic (aperture) to cleaning chemicals.
Do not use laser if the laser appears to be emitting only one or two
Never open the laser housing. The high laser power levels inside of
the protective housing can start fires, burn skin and will cause instant
eye injury.
Never leave this device running unattended.
The operation of a class 3R laser show is only allowed if the show
is controlled by a skilled and well- trained operator, familiar with the
data included in this manual.
The legal requirements for using laser entertainment products vary
from country to country. The user is responsible for the legal requirements at the location/country of use.
Always use proper lighting safety cables when hanging lights and
effects overhead.

Micro Hypnotic Cleaning
Fixture Cleaning: Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning
the internal and external lenses should be carried out periodically to
optimize light output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the out-
side casing.
2. Clean the external optics with a microfiber cloth every 20 days.
3. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging the unit back in.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture
operates (I.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew). In heavy use we recommend cleaning on a monthly basis. Periodic cleaning will ensure longevity, and crisp beam output.
Micro Hypnotic Trouble Shooting
Trouble Shooting: Listed below are a few common problems that
you may encounter, with solutions.
No laser output from the unit;
1.Be sure you have connected your unit into a standard wall outlet.
2. Be sure that the unit is not in blackout mode.
3.In cold temperature situations it might take the laser a little longer to produce output. It can take up to 3-5 minutes for the laser to produce a beam. This is due to the laser diode which is very sen-
Unit does not respond to sound;
1. Low frequencies (bass) should cause the unit to react to sound.
Tapping on the microphone, quiet or high pitched sounds may
not activate the unit.
