Installation
Placing Center and Station
IMPORTANT!
– Install your Center and Station near
the AC outlet and where the AC power
plug can be reached easily.
Take the following steps to optimize the
Wi-Fi connection between Center and
Station:
– Keep your Center and Station away from the
source of interference (wireless routers,
microwave ovens, DECT phones, bluetooth
devices, cordless phones, other Wi-Fi products,
etc.)
– Avoid placing your Center or Station close to
the plasmaTV. It may result in improper display
on your Center’s 2-way remote control.
– Keep Stations adequately apart or in different
angles (e.g. in different rooms blocked by one
wall). Within a distance and angle (e.g. in the
same room), your Center’s remote control is
powerful enough to simultaneously operate
several Stations, which may also result in
improper display on the 2-way remote control.
Mounting stand onto Station
WAS5 Station is equipped with a stand. To
mount the stand onto your Station,
1 Align the supplied stand to the slot at Station’s
bottom
2 Insert the stand into the slot firmly
Helpful hints:
– Once inserted, the stand is undetachable.

antenna, or adjust the location of your Center and
Station.

wireless PC network.To learn about how to change
channels, see the manual Connect to your PC:
Option 2.
– If possible, change the operating channels of the
otherWi-Fi devices at your home.

Problem Solution
Troubleshooting
✔ Check you have placed the Center and Station
side by side on a flat and firm surface.
✔ Check you have connected the Center to power
supply.
✔ When adding a new station, check your center is
in Installation mode
✔ Turn off the wireless router nearby if there is
difficulty in connecting your Center and Station.
If you are playing the set, stop playback and take
the appropriate measures as follows:
✔ Keep the Center or Station at least 3 meters
away from such devices.
✔ Use the WEP key when connecting your
Center and Station to an existing wireless PC
network. Refer to the owner’s manual of your
router and Option 2 in Connect to your
PC.
✔ Change the operating channel of your Center
and Station when connecting them to an existing
wireless PC network.To learn about how to
change channels, see the manual Connect to
your PC.
✔ If possible, change the operating channels of
the other Wi-Fi devices at your home.
✔ Turn the devices in different directions to
minimize interference.
✔ Remove the protective plastic tab before using
the Station’s remote control.
✔ Reduce the distance between the remote
control and the set.
✔ Replace the battery.
✔ Point the remote control directly towards the IR

Wi-Fi connection:
During the first-time setup, Station’s
display shows “Searching for Center”
I get interference on my wireless (WiFi)
link between center and station.
The Wireless Music Center/Station operate in
the 2.4GHz radio frequency spectrum. Many
other household/IT devices also operate in the
frequency spectrum, for example: microwave
ovens, Dect phones, Bluetooth devices like
Bluetooth headphones, computer mouse,
wireless routers, cordless phones, WiFi
compatible printers, PDAs.
These devices can interfere with the WiFi link
between Center and Station, resulting in such
interference as the pause during playback , the
set’s slow response to your operation. The
severity of interference varies depending on the
extent of radiation from the device and the
strength of Wi-Fi signals in the position.
Remote control:
The remote control does not function
properly.
