PrecautionsBefore using this product, carefully read this manual and retain it for future reference. Parents and guardians of children should read this manual and make sure that children follow all safety precautions.


  • If you come into contact with material from a leaking battery, take the following actions:
    • If the material gets into the eyes, do not rub. Immediately flush the eyes with clean water and seek medical attention.
    • If the material comes into contact with the skin or clothes, immediately rinse the affected area with clean water. Consult your doctor if inflammation or soreness develops.
  • Do not place batteries in water or fire. Do not disassemble, heat, modify, or charge the batteries. Doing so may cause the batteries to leak or become damaged, which may lead to injury or burns.
  • Use only AA batteries. Do not combine old and new, or different types of batteries. Using batteries of different capacities may cause explosion or leakage, which may lead to injury or burns.

  • Dispose of used batteries according to the battery manufacturer’s instructions or local regulations.
  • Remove batteries when they have reached the end of their life, or when storing the media remote for an extended period of time. Leaving them in the remote may cause leakage due to battery overdischarge, which may lead to injury or burns.
