Do not drop, hit or otherwise abuse the Wii console, components or accessories.

When disconnecting any plugs from the console or wall outlet, first turn the Wii console off. Then carefully pull by the plug itself rather than by the cord.

Do not step on, sharply pull or bend any wire or cables.

Do not expose the Wii console, components or accessories to extreme heat or cold.

Do not spill any liquids on the Wii console, components or accessories.

To clean, use a soft slightly damp cloth. Use water only. Allow to dry completely before using.

TV and Audio/Video Settings

After you have completed all steps of the setup procedure and are ready to use the Wii system, you will need to set the appropriate "input select" setting for your TV, VCR or other audio equipment.

1.Turn ON the power for your TV and any audio equipment connected to your gameplay setup and the power on the Wii console.

2.Select the correct input setting for your TV (see Input Select Information below).

3.The Wii Menu should appear on the TV screen. See the Channel section of the Operations Manual for more information on this feature.

If the Wii Menu screen does not appear, check to make sure your input setting is correct and review the Troubleshooting section on pages 31-32.

Input Select Information

The input select allows you to switch between the different inputs on your TV or VCR.

Manufacturers of TVs and VCRs use different names and locations for "input select". The common names for the input select are: input, select, input select, line, line in, source, in, EXT, and AUX. Consult your TV or VCR instruction manual for details.

NOTE: More information on "Input Select" is available on our web site at www.nintendo.com/consumer/inputselects.html

Locate the input select for the component that the Wii AV Cable is connected to (either the TV or VCR). The most common locations for input select are:

•A button on the front of the TV or VCR. •A button on the remote control.

•A high-numberedor low numbered channel (92, 99, 00, or 02) on the TV or VCR. •Anon-screenmenu selection.

Setup of the Wii Remote

The remote uses AA batteries. Nintendo recommends high quality alkaline batteries for best performance and longevity of battery life.

WARNING - Battery Leakage

Leakage of battery acid can cause personal injury as well as damage to your remote. 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 different brands of batteries.

Nintendo recommends alkaline batteries. Do not use lithium ion, nickel cadmium (nicad), or carbon zinc batteries.

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

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.

Installing Batteries

1.Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote and insert two AA batteries.

2.Be sure to insert the minus (–)end first when inserting new batteries, and remove the plus (+) end first when replacing the batteries.

3.Replace the battery cover.

CAUTION - Use the Wrist Strap

Wii gameplay with the Wii Remote can involve rapid or vigorous motion. Please use the wrist strap to prevent losing your grip on the remote and causing damage to the remote or surrounding objects, or injury to other people.

WEAR THE WRIST STRAP WHEN USING THE Wii REMOTE.

Make sure all players use the wrist strap and that the strap lock is correctly tightened.

When sharing the Wii Remote between multiple players, make sure each person uses the wrist strap properly.

Wearing the wrist strap will prevent you from accidentally dropping or throwing the remote during gameplay, which could damage the remote or surrounding objects, or cause injury to other people.

DO NOT LET GO OF THE REMOTE DURING GAME PLAY.

Read the Instruction booklet for the game you are playing and follow all game control instructions for correct use of the Wii Remote or accessory controllers.

Hold the remote securely and avoid excessive motion, as it may cause you to let go of the remote and may break the wrist strap.

If your hands become moist, stop and dry your hands.

ALLOW ADEQUATE ROOM AROUND YOU DURING GAME PLAY.

Stay at least three (3) feet away from the television.

As you may move around during gameplay, make sure objects and other people are out of your range of movement or arm motion to prevent damage or injury.

Wearing the Wii Remote Wrist Strap

1. Place your hand through the wrist strap and hold the remote firmly in your hand.

2.Slide the strap lock up so that the strap will not fall off your wrist. Do not over tighten the strap lock so that it’s uncomfortable. It should just be tight enough to hold the wrist strap in place.

Synchronizing Your Wii Remote with the Wii Console

This procedure allows the remote to communicate with the console.

The Wii Remote included with your Wii system has been synchronized with the console at the factory.

There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing).

STANDARD MODE – The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes to your system or if you want tore-synchronizeyour original remote. Once synchronized, the remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite this setting by syncing the remote to a different console.

ONE TIME MODE – This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a console other than your own or to use a friends remote on your console.It does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the remote. In this mode, the remote will only communicate with the console while the power is on. When the power is turned off the remote will lose its sync with the console.

• Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the console power ON or OFF.
