Directions for using your TV-B-Gone
1. Point it at a TV set
2. Press the button (no need to hold the button down)
3. Keep pointing it at the TV until the TV turns off (which may take up to 69 seconds)
We have 2 models of TV-B-Gone
- North American & Asian model
- European model
The North American & Asian model works for televisions in US, Canada, Mexico, as well as many Asian countries (may also work in other countries that use NTSC video). The European model works for televisions in European countries and Australia (may also work in other countries that use PAL or SECAM video).
Tips on effective use of your TV-B-Gone
Your TV-B-Gone remote control is very small and weighs very little compared to most other remote controls. The batteries are also extremely small, but be assured that batteries (watch batteries) are included and already installed within the device!!!
It may take up to 69 seconds for the television to turn off, but most TVs will turn off within the first few seconds. Although we tried our best to make your TV-B-Gone remote control turn off any and all TV's, there may be some few that it won't turn off.
Instant Reactivation Feature: This new feature allows you to press the button at any time to RESTART transmission of all of its infrared codes. Since the codes for the most popular TVs are closest to the beginning of the sequence, you can shut off more TVs faster, without waiting the full 69 seconds, as with the original version.
Bigger Battery: Another new feature is that it has a bigger battery, allowing it to last even longer than the original model.
Flashing LED: This light indicates that the unit is sending out its signal. (If you don't want the flashing LED on, simply double-click at the beginning of a new sequence.) The small, clear emitter node at the front will not light up or glow – actually, it does light up with infra-red light but you can't see it!
