IMPORTANT Please follow the below mentioned instructions carefully in order not to damage the equipment while using it.

Location The MIB must never be placed in a manner or place in which it is subjected to high temperatures. As an addition to this, please avoid the following: · putting the MIB in a closed cupboard or cabinet · placing the MIB directly on top of a hot equipment · covering the MIB with items of clothing · installing the MIB upright (vertically)

On / Off The MIB has to be powered on (updates are done during night). In cases where it is necessary to turn of the MIB, please use the power button on the front. Never shut down the MIB by cutting of power directly at the socket.

Cleaning Make sure to clean the area around the MIB to avoid it from getting clogged with dust.

If the above mentioned recommendations are not followed, the risk of machine break down will rise notably.

NB! NB! Allways try to reboot the MIB before calling the support. (Remember that it takes about 2 minutes before the music starts to play after a shot down!)

Quick-test in case of no sound (music): Unplug the sound cable from the MIB (see picture VII). Hereby music should be heard from the internal loudspeaker of the MIB. This indicates that the MIB is operating properly. Put the sound cable back into the MIB. Then check: - is the Yoga mini-amplifier connected correctly? (see picture VIII-X) - is the amplifier (e.g. Harman Kardon) turned on and set to the right source? Please enjoy your new MIB MediaButler.
