EPILEPSY WARNING

Some people are susceptible to epileptic seizures or loss of consciousness when exposed to certain flashing lights or light patterns in everyday life. Such people may have a seizure while watching certain television images or playing certain video games. This may happen even if the person has no medical history of epilepsy or has never had any epileptic seizures.

Certain conditions may induce undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no history of prior seizures or epilepsy.

If you or anyone in your family has ever had symptoms related to epilepsy (seizures or loss of consciousness) when exposed to flashing lights, consult your doctor prior to playing. We advise that parents should monitor the use of video games by their children. If you or your child experience any of the following symptoms: dizziness, blurred vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of consciousness, disorientation, any involuntary movement or convulsion, IMMEDIATELY discontinue use and consult your doctor.

FOR YOUR HEALTH

§Do not stand too close to the screen. Sit a good distance away from the television screen, as far away as the length of the cable allows.

§Preferably play the game on a small television screen.

§Avoid playing if you are tired or have not had much sleep.

§Make sure that the room in which you are playing is well lit.

§Rest for at least 10 minutes per hour while playing a video game.

WARNING

1.Do not expose the Sega Saturn to water, rain or moisture, as this can result in electric shock or fire.

2.Do not disassemble or alter the Sega Saturn and its peripherals in any way. No parts inside the unit can be serviced by the user. Misuse of the Sega Saturn in this way may lead to electric shock and damage to the unit. If you have a problem, contact your Sega dealer.

3.The Sega Saturn console operates at 220 - 240 V AC, ~ 50/60 Hz.

Unplug the Power Cord when connecting the Sega Saturn. Also ensure that the television and VCR to which the Sega Saturn is connected are switched off. If you do not, it may cause electric shock.

5.Turn off the Sega Saturn when not in use.

Leaving the Sega Saturn with the power on may constitute a risk of fire.

6.Power-cord Protection: The Power Cord should be routed so as to avoid being walked on or pinched by items placed on or against it. Pay particular attention to the area near the plug, outlet or receptacle, and the point where the Power Cord exits the Sega Saturn. A frayed, perforated or stripped cord can result in electric shock or fire.

7.Heat: The Sega Saturn should not be situated near sources of heat, such as radiators, heat registers, stoves or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat. Failure to comply with this can result in a risk of fire, electric shock or damage to the unit.
