Be sure the RESET Switch (located on the back of the Power Touch unit) is in the ON position. If the product does not seem to be functioning correctly, try sliding the RESET switch to OFF and then back to ON again. If this does not correct the problem, your batteries may be weak or completely dead. Try inserting a new set of 4 “AA” alkaline batteries.
The light lit at the top of the unit will indicate the active mode of the product. The default mode is the “Words” mode, so whenever you do not actively select a mode, the product will default to the “Words” mode. This will also happen if you make selections that do not correspond with the active mode.
The system uses touch-sensitive technology, thus responding to any touch. You do not need to press hard. For best results, users should use only one finger to touch each word or picture, allowing time for the interactive response before touching the next selection.
During play, the unit must be completely open so that it lies flat. If the unit is even partially closed, the page activation may not work properly thus giving responses for another page, other than the active page .
If the book is torn, bent, curled, written on, marked up, etc, the unit may not work properly and may not recognize the active page. Taping torn pages will not fix the problem. You will need to replace the damaged books.
If something is blocking the optical sensors, such as dirt, sand, the user’s hands, etc., the page activation may not work properly.
To properly load a book, hold the book closed with the cover facing up toward you, fit the top end of the bookbinding into the top of the unit, then lower the bottom end of the book binding into the bottom of the unit.
Make sure the back cover of the book is lying flat against the right side of the base unit.
If the book is open to any inside page, make sure the front cover is lying flat against the left side of the base unit.
Make sure all other pages are lying flat.
Make sure the book is not upside down.
You may play with only one book at a time when inside the unit.
The alphabet on the base unit does not work if a book is loaded into the unit (even though you can see half of the alphabet when using the front cover or back cover of a book.)
The two starter books that come with the base unit do not require a cartridge. To play with these books, make sure there is no cartridge or any other object inserted into the cartridge port located at the top right side of the unit.
You can store only one cartridge inside the unit at a time.
We recommend that you keep the book and corresponding cartridge together.
The cartridge has been designed to clip to the binding of its book for storage. Simply turn the cartridge sideways and clip the top edge (where the little nubs protrude) of the cartridge onto the binding.
