you turn it ON or OFF. Point the Menacer at your choice and pull the TRIGGER.
HINTS FOR SHOOTIN’ THE FRUIT

and insert four (4) “AA” batteries as indicated inside the compartment (alkaline batteries recommended). Replace the battery compartment door.
• Use the ADJUST AIM SCREEN to set your targeting accuracy. Aim at the
center of the target. If the mark hits the center, your aim is perfect. If the

aim a little differently down the BARREL of the Master Module.
• Whack a Sign and the game scrolls backward. Now fire away at the foes
you missed before.

memory function. All game data will be erased when the power is turned off

Before the game starts, shoot at your choices on screen to select them:
• Use only the recommended battery type.
• Do not leave it in direct sunlight or near a radiator or other source of heat.
• Be sure to take an occasional break during extended play, to rest yourself
and the Play TV system.
This product will not operate properly if connected to a Projection, LCD,
Plasma, Flat Screen or High Definition TV (HDTV). Use only a standard tube
type glass screen TV.
If the screen is too dark, please increase the brightness on the television and
try again. If brightness increase is not satisfactory, check for low batteries.
To locate your auxiliary channel, which is usually not 3 or 4, but a gaming channel found mostly found between 2 and 99 (example 2, 1, 0, 99), first try 00 to
see if it is the auxiliary channel. Channels downwards from 3 until a Line 1 or
Line 2, Video 1 or Video 2, Front, Aux, AV, etc., appears on screen, then push
the power button on the game and it should automatically come on if you have
selected the correct channel. If this does not work, another way to determine
your auxiliary channel is to take a look at your television remote. There may be
a button on the remote that may take you directly to the correct channel. The
buttons you are looking for may be labeled Input, AUX, AV, Line, TV/Video, or
Video. If your remote has one of these buttons, turn your television back to
Channel 3 and select that button. The power button on the game should be
turned on in order for the game to appear on the television. If your television
remote does not have any of these buttons, and channel 00 is not working, you
may need to search the main menu for a way to determine your auxiliary channel. If none of these methods have helped you locate your auxiliary channel,
you may need to check your owner's manual and/or contact a local television
When connecting to a VCR, you must first start with a blue background showing on your television screen. To obtain a blue screen, try inserting a videotape
into the VCR, let it start to play, then hit the stop button. This may give you a
blue screen, then you can channel down to your auxiliary channel. If the blue
screen still does not appear, try entering your TV and/or VCR main menu and
see if it gives you options to select a blue screen background. Many times if
you enter the main menu on your television you can change the setting from
cable to video and display a blue screen. Also if you have an older television,
you may locate a hidden door on your television that has color, picture, horizontal, vertical, and cable, antennae buttons. If your television includes this panel,
you can select the antennae/cable button and see the blue screen appears. If
you have tried all of these options and are still unsuccessful connecting the
console, then you may need to check your VCR owner’s manual or contact the
manufacturer to find out how to set up your VCR for console games.
