WARNING

PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE HEALTH AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS BOOKLET INCLUDED WITH THE NINTENDO GAMECUBE SYSTEM OR GAMES BEFORE USING THIS ACCESSORY. THIS BOOKLET CONTAINS IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION.

Operation of the WaveBird Controller

Installing Batteries

Remove the battery cover on the back of the WaveBird and insert two AA batteries as shown (Illustration 1). Be sure to insert the negative (-)ends first. Replace the battery cover.

NOTE: Fresh high quality alkaline batteries will supply up to 100 hours of use, however this will vary depending on surrounding temperature, type of game play, type of battery and how long the WaveBird is left on when not in use.

Removing Batteries

Remove the cover on the back of the WaveBird and remove two AA batteries. Remove the positive (+) ends first. Replace the battery cover.

WARNING

BATTERY LEAKAGE:

Leakage of battery acid can cause personal injury as well as damage to your WaveBird Controller. If battery leakage occurs, thoroughly wash the affected skin and clothes. Keep battery acid away from your eyes and mouth. Leaking batteries may make popping sounds.

To avoid battery leakage:

Do not mix used and new batteries (replace all batteries at the same time).

Do not mix alkaline with any other type of battery (carbon zinc, nickel cadmium, etc).

Do not mix different brands of batteries.

Use only alkaline or carbon zinc batteries. Do not use nickel cadmium (nicad) or nickel metal hydride (nimh) batteries.

Do not leave used batteries in the WaveBird Controller. When the batteries are losing their charge, the Power Indicator will become dim. When this happens, promptly replace all

used batteries with fresh new batteries.

Do not leave batteries in the WaveBird Controller for long periods of non-use.

Do not leave the Power Switch ON after the batteries have lost their charge. When you finish using the WaveBird Controller, always slide the Power Switch OFF.

Do not recharge the batteries.

Do not put the batteries in backwards. Make sure that the positive (+) and negative (-)ends are facing in the correct directions. Insert the negative end first. When removing batteries, remove the positive end first.

Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.

Controller Neutral Position Reset

NOTE: If the L or R Buttons are pressed or the Control Stick or C Stick are moved out of neutral position when the power is turned ON, those positions will be set as the neutral position, causing incorrect game control during game play.

To reset the controller, release all buttons and sticks to allow them to return to the correct neutral position, then turn the power OFF and then ON again on the WaveBird Controller (Illustration 2).

Installing and Removing the Receiver

1.Set the same channel on both the WaveBird and the Receiver. When using more than one WaveBird and Receiver, use a different channel for each pair of WaveBirds and Receivers.

2.Insert the Receiver into the Nintendo GameCube Controller Socket (Illustration 3). Be careful to insert the Receiver into the Controller Socket straight, parallel to the socket as shown. The Controller Socket used will vary depending upon the game. Please read the Game Disc instruction booklet for the game you are playing for more information about which Controller Socket to use.

3.To remove the Receiver, pull it out of the Controller Socket (Illustration 4). Be careful to pull the Receiver straight out of the Controller Socket, parallel to the socket as shown.

For best results, follow these guidelines:

Use the WaveBird and Receiver within 20 feet (6 meters) of each other. The effective range may vary depending on outside interference from radio frequency sources.

Avoid using the WaveBird around devices that may cause radio frequency interference such as cordless phones, microwave devices or wireless LANs (local area networks).

Change the channel settings on matching pairs of WaveBirds and Receivers if they seem to be working improperly.

Replace the batteries if the Power Indicator becomes dim.

Be sure to turn the Power Switch OFF when not using the WaveBird.

Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble getting the WaveBird Controller to work properly, try the following solutions before calling for service:

Make sure that the receiver is fully inserted into the correct controller socket on the front of the Nintendo GameCube.

Make sure that the power is ON, and that the Power Indicator is lit. If the power is ON but the Power Indicator is not lit or is dim, try installing fresh new batteries.

Make sure that the channel settings match for each pair of controllers/receivers that are connected to the console.

Try setting the controller/receiver to a different channel if the operation seems inconsistent or incorrect.

If you are using more than one set of controllers/receivers, make sure that they are not set to the same channel.

Reset the control stick/analog button alignment by following the procedure described earlier, if the game control seems inconsistent or incorrect.

Make sure you are 20 feet (6 meters) or less from the receiver.

Make sure when you are playing, that the top of the controller is pointed in the direction of the receiver.

Check for interference from radio frequency devices such as cordless phones, microwave devices, or wireless LANs (local area networks). Try removing the source of interference or move the game system away from any potential interference or try turning off the source of interference if possible. Try changing the channel settings on the controller/receiver pair.
