1.1 Welcome

Congratulations on your new Starlight Fun Center mobile entertainment unit brought to you by Starlight Children’s Foundation.

For more than 20 years, Starlight has partnered with Nintendo of America to bring the

Starlight Fun Center unit to facilities in the U.S. and Canada. We are proud of this legacy and hope you will enjoy this mobile entertainment unit.

This Fun Center unit contains a TV, a Wii U™ console, a Wii U GamePad, a Wii Remote™ Plus, and a Nunchuk™. It rolls bedside – or almost anywhere – to provide physical therapy activities, distractive entertainment, or just some much-needed play time during a child’s healing process.

The enhanced capabilities of the new Fun Center unit, powered by Nintendo Wii U, offers many new features, including:

• Wii U GamePad—The one-of-a-kind controller only for the Wii U.

• Struggling to see the TV screen from the bedside? Many games and video apps. are playable using just the screen on the Wii U GamePad!

• Is it quiet time? Plug your headphones directly into the Wii U GamePad to enjoy all the excitement without disturbing those around you.

• Variety of Content

• Each Fun Center unit comes with 25 pre-installed games and plenty of hard drive space for additional games.

• Have a favorite game at home? Bring your own game discs and play them on this

Fun Center unit! The Nintendo Wii U can play both Wii U and Wii Game Discs.

• Video-On-Demand. Tired of throwing away damaged DVDs or losing them altogether? Patients can now use their own Netflix, huluPLUS, or amazon instant video accounts to watch movies and shows!

• Simplicity of Service

• Replacing a controller can now be done without opening your Fun Center unit, and it only takes about 5 minutes!

• Is there a game everyone is asking for? Purchase and download popular Wii U titles directly to your Fun Center unit from the Nintendo eShop!

Starlight Fun Center units play an important role in the overall health and well-being of pediatric patients. Nurses, physicians, and child-life specialists report that Fun Center units:

• Engage and entertain children during long hours of treatment or extended stays

• Some people (about 1 in 4000) may have seizures or blackouts triggered by light flashes or patterns, and this may occur while they are watching TV or playing video games, even if they have never had a seizure before.

• Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptoms linked to an epileptic condition should consult a doctor before playing a video game.

• Parents should watch their children play video games. Stop playing and consult a doctor if you or your child has any of the following symptoms:

• Convulsions

100425-C 3


To reduce the likelihood of a seizure when playing video games:

• Play video games on the smallest available television screen.

• Do not play if you are tired or need sleep.

• Play in a well-lit room.

• Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour.

Warning – Repetitive Motion

Playing video games can make your muscles, joints, skin, or eyes hurt. Follow these instructions to avoid problems such as tendinitis, eyestrain, skin irritation, or carpal tunnel syndrome:

• Avoid excessive play. Parents should monitor their children for appropriate play.

• Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour, even if you don’t think you need it.

• If your hands, wrists, arms, or eyes become tired or sore while playing, or if you feel symptoms such as tingling, numbness, burning, or stiffness, stop and rest for several hours before playing again.

• If you continue to have any of the above symptoms or other discomfort during or after play, stop playing and see a doctor.

Warning – Do Not Replace Battery in the Console

Do not replace the battery in the Wii U console. If the battery is incorrectly replaced, there can be danger of explosion.

Warning – Oxygen-enriched Environment

There is a risk of fire if the unit or controllers are used in an oxygen-enriched atmosphere. Store the controllers away from the bed when not in use or when using oxygen-administering equipment.

To avoid electric shock when you use this system, observe the following warnings:

• Do not use the Fun Center unit during a lightning storm. There may be a risk of electric shock from lightning.

• Use only the AC adapters that come with your Fun Center unit.


• Do not use the AC adapters if they are damaged, or have split or broken cords or wires.

1.4.3 Cautions

Caution – Power

Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug—The Fun

Center unit is equipped with a hospital-grade, 3-wire grounding-type plug. The grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong provided for your safety. This plug only fits into a grounding-type power outlet.

Power cord—Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched. The power cord must be routed safely to prevent people from stepping on it, or objects resting on it. When the Fun Center unit is not in use, make sure the cord is properly stored by coiling it over the power cord hook located in the back of the unit below the cabinet.

Power source—This unit must operate on a designated power source shown on the specification label located on the back of the cabinet.

Power connection—Make sure that the power cord plug and power socket are easily accessible and that the unit can easily be disconnected.

Caution – Attachments and Accessories

Only use attachments and accessories specified by the manufacturer.

Caution – Inserting Foreign Material

Foreign objects—Never insert an object into the Fun Center unit through vents or openings. High voltage flows in the unit; inserting an object can cause electric shock and/or short internal parts. Only insert Wii U and Wii Game Discs into the

Wii U console. Inserting any foreign material into the Wii U console may cause it to stop functioning.

100425-C 5

Multiple discs—Do not insert multiple discs into the Wii U console disc slot.

Inserting multiple discs damages the disc drive and can cause all discs to become stuck in the console. Removal of discs will require the console be sent to Nintendo for service.

Caution – Motion Sickness

Playing video games can cause motion sickness in some players. If you or your child feel dizzy or nauseous when playing video games, stop playing and rest. Do not drive or engage in other demanding activity until you feel better.

Caution – Laser Device

The Wii U console is a Class 1 Laser Product. Do not attempt to disassemble the Wii U console. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.

Following are the laser specifications:

• Laser type: Semiconductor laser

• Laser wavelength range: 405 nm, 660 nm

• Laser power: Max. 0.6 mW, Max. 0.9 mW

1.5 Cleaning and Servicing

Cleaning—Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet before cleaning the unit.

Use a damp cloth to gently wipe down the Fun Center unit.

• Do not spray liquid or aerosol cleaners directly onto the unit.

• Do not use any detergent or bleach-based wipes on the TV or controllers as these substances will damage the parts.
