Precautions
02
Before using PhotoMaker Pro, please ensure that you read and under-
03 stand the safety precautions described below. Always ensure that the
PhotoMaker Pro is operated correctly.
03
1. Do not try to open the case of the PhotoMaker Pro or attempt to
04 modify it in any way. High-voltage internal components create the
risk of electric shock when exposed. Maintenance and repairs should
05 be performed only by authorized service providers.
06 2. Keep PhotoMaker Pro away from water and other liquids. Do not
use with wet hands. Moisture creates the danger of fire and electric
08 shock.
09 3. If you notice smoke or a strange odor coming from the PhotoMaker
Pro, turn the power off immediately. Contact the Kaiser Baas Support
14 Centre to organise repair. Never attempt to repair PhotoMaker Pro on
your own.
15 4. Use only the supplied power accessories. Use of power sources
16 not expressly recommended for the PhotoMaker Pro may lead to
overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire, electrical shock or
17 other hazards.
5. PhotoMaker Pro may become slightly warm during use. This does not
21 indicate malfunction.
22 6. If the exterior of PhotoMaker Pro needs cleaning, wipe it with a soft,
dry cloth.
