If any button is pressed while the unit is in `Hold’ mode, the screen will display a lock icon in the top right hand side.

Battery Use

Slide open the battery cover (Ref.10) and insert 2 x AA batteries (included) into the battery compartment. Ensure that the polarities are correct and the negative (-) side is aligned with the smooth end of the battery, and the positive side (+) is aligned with the opposite end of the battery. 2 new AA batteries will provide for approximately 7 hours of battery life.

AC Adapter Use
