Cause and solution:
When using battery power, make sure the batteries are fresh and replace
if necessary.
Check that the speaker “tuned” indicator light is illuminated blue.
Change the position of the channel select switch (1, 2 or 3) to change the
operating frequency. The speaker will detect the loss of signal and
retune automatically. However, you can also press the power/volume/scan
control once to make the speaker retune.
Change the location of the transmitter. Place it as high and away from
obstructions as possible. Avoid placing the transmitter directly on top of or
behind a TV.
Move the transmitter and speakers closer together. Sending the signal
through certain materials, such as glass, tile, and metal, can decrease the
effective transmitting distance of the system.
VIII. Troubleshooting
The following troubleshooting guide takes you through some of the more
common problems associated with the installation and/or operation of a wireless
system. If the problem persists, please call 1-800-732-6866 and a knowledgeable
customer service representative will assist you.
Cause and solution:
• Check that the transmitter AC power adapter is fully inserted into the wall
outlet and the power cord from the AC adapter is firmly connected to the
transmitter power input jack.
• Confirm that the speakers are turned ON and tuned to the transmitter –
the blue “tuned” indicator light should be glowing steadily.
• Confirm that the speaker AC power adapters are fully inserted into the wall
outlet and the power cord from each AC power adapter is firmly
connected to the speaker power input jack.
• Check that the C-cell batteries are fresh and inserted with correct polarity
(+, –).
• Check that the audio source component (stereo, TV, etc.) is turned on and
transmitting sound as it normally should.
• Check that the speaker volume is turned up.
• If you are using a Tape 2 Monitor output from your receiver/amp as the
audio output, check that you have pressed the Tape Monitor/Tape 2
button on the front of the receiver. This will turn on the Tape 2 outputs,
which may not have been active.
