- Switch the on system using the switch on the back of the main unit on the left side marked “ON-OFF”.
- The user may get the most benefit from the system by adjusting the position of the Main Unit on the desk to suit their need.
- During normal use when conversation is taking place, the LED will flash ‘green’ in conjunction with speech to indicate that the unit is working.
- If the battery level becomes low, the LED will flash ‘red’ periodically. The unit should then be charged using the power adapter provided. (This may be done whilst the system is still in operation).
- To ensure that the unit is ready for use when required, and to preserve battery life, put on charge periodically, (e.g. once a month, using the power adapter). This should be plugged into a 13 amp mains socket with the flexible lead connected to the socket on the rear of the main unit marked “PWR”.
