Playing with InteracTV requires you to insert an activity card into the controller. When inserting the activity card, make sure to point the controller at the DVD player.
If the controller is programmed correctly, the footage on the TV should change when the activity card is inserted. Some DVD players respond slower than others, so give it a second. The wait should be no longer than 5 seconds.
Footage of your favorite TV character will play on the TV. At some point the character will ask the child a question and footage on the TV screen will match the icons on the activity card. Wait for the character to finish asking the question or giving directions.
Then you can input your answer by pressing one of the icons on the activity card. Make sure the controller is pointed at the DVD player when you do this. Your selected answer should light up on the TV screen and the footage should continue.
At anytime you can press either the forward or back arrows to forward to the next section or skip back to the previous section. The green indication light will light up whenever you press an icon or arrow button.
Removing the activity card brings you back to the main menu screen. You can then put in a different activity card and continue playing. An activity card must be in the unit in order for the controller to work.
When testing with the test card, the consumer is getting no functionality
with the any buttons. A character macro maybe needed.
The controller is shipped with several default macros. Certain DVD
players require an enter command be sent after the numeric commands (arrow keys
do not require enter), others require that all commands be sent multiple times
The macros are programmed after the manufacture code has been programmed.
There are two sets of macros. One set controls the number of times a
command is sent.
The other sends additional characters with the number commands.
0001 – Will send only the numeric command (1-9)
0002 – Will send the numeric command (1-9), then enter (default)
0003 – Will send zero then the numeric command (1-9)
0004 – Will send zero then the numeric command (1-9) then enter.
Number of times command is sent
0005 – Will send the IR command one time
0006 – Will send the IR command 2 times (default)
0007 – Will send the IR command 3 times
If no macro is entered the controller will use the default macros. In most
cases the default macro will function fine and does not need to be changed.
The additional character macro is specific to the 3 pos. memory
switch. Every time a new manufacture code is programmed the Additional
character macro will reset to the default code.
The additional character macro only affects the number 1-9 it does not
affect the arrow buttons
The number of times command is sent macro is assigned to all positions of
the memory switch and will not reset to default even if a new manufacturers code
is entered. The consumer must reprogram it to change it.
When programming a macro each button pressed will flash the green indicator
light once. When the final digit is pressed and the macro is programmed
the green indicator light will flash twice (just like when inserting a card).
After any of these commands are entered into the controller, the controller
will stop responding to button presses until the card is removed and
Version 1.0 remotes do not support macros and will not display the double
blink after the 4th button is pressed.
You may need to replace the batteries in the handheld device. If the iXL™ handheld device still doesn't respond, the touch screen and stylus may need to be re-calibrated. Insert the tip of the stylus into the larger hole on the back of the handheld device. Then follow the on-screen directions.
If the software title does not appear on the handheld device, check the following:
During the software title installation process, you will be prompted to install iXL™Computer Software before installing the software title. After this installation is complete install the software title.
You may not have properly installed the software. Uninstall and then reinstall the software title.
You may have run out of storage space. Delete some content on the handheld device (using iXL™Computer Software) or install an SD card (sold separately) to increase space.
You may not have transferred the software properly. Please be sure you use only iXL™ Computer Software to transfer content to the handheld device. Also, handheld device power must be on and the handheld device must be open during the transfer process.
A.We recommend using alkaline batteries with our products, as they are great for long-term use and help optimize performance. We don't recommend using Carbon-Zinc batteries. While Carbon-Zinc batteries may work well with low-power devices, they can drain after a short period of time and cause certain products to not function properly.
The Power Wheels® 12V Quick Charger will not produce an output until it is plugged into a working Power Wheels® battery.The charger needs to detect a battery before it starts charging, so no voltage will be present when testing it with a volt meter.
