the battery compartment.) Remove the batteries if the remote control will not be used for

an extended period of time. If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid touching

the leaked material or letting it come in contact with clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly before installing new batteries.

Remote control operation range

Notes There should be no large obstacles between the remote control

and the main unit. If the remote control sensor is directly illuminated by strong

lighting (especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp, etc.), it might cause the remote control not to work correctly. In this case, reposition the main unit to avoid direct lighting.

Removing the protection sheet The remote control is shipped with a protection sheet to prevent the surface from being scratched during transportation. When removing the sheet, first put adhesive tape on an edge of the remote control so that the tape sticks to the sheet. Then peel the sheet off with the tape.
