  • Do not expose the SHIELD to any gas which is not normally contained in the atmosphere. It may cause mis-operation or defects.
  • Never turn on any equipment when there is evidence of fire, water, or structural damage.
  • Place the product away from radiators, heat registers, stoves, amplifiers, or other appliances that produce heat.
  • Never force a connector into a port. Check for obstructions on the port. If the connector and port don't join with reasonable ease, they probably don't match. Make sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
  • Operate the AC adapter in a ventilated area.
  • When you are using the NVIDIA SHIELD, it is normal for the system and/or AC power adapter to get warm.
  • Do not use conductive tools that could bridge live parts.
  • Do not make mechanical or electrical modifications to the equipment.

A lire avant toute utilisation d'un jeu vidéo par vous-même ou par votre enfant.

 

I. - Précautions à prendre dans tous les cas pour l'utilisation d'un jeu vidéo.

Evitez de jouer si vous êtes fatigué ou si vous manquez de sommeil.

Assurez-vous que vous jouez dans une pièce bien éclairée en modérant la luminosité de votre écran.

Lorsque vous utilisez un jeu vidéo susceptible d'être connecté à un écran, jouez à bonne distance de cet écran de télévision et aussi loin que le permet le cordon de raccordement.

En cours d'utilisation, faites des pauses de dix à quinze minutes toutes les heures.

 

II. - Avertissement sur l'épilepsie.

Certaines personnes sont susceptibles de faire des crises d'épilepsie comportant, le cas échéant, des pertes de conscience à la vue, notamment, de certains types de stimulations lumineuses fortes: succession rapide d'images ou répétition de figures géométriques simples, d'éclairs ou d'explosions. Ces personnes s'exposent à des crises lorsqu'elles jouent à certains jeux vidéo comportant de telles stimulations, alors même qu'elles n'ont pas d'antécédent médical ou n'ont jamais été sujettes elles-mêmes à des crises d'épilepsie.

Si vous-même ou un membre de votre famille avez déjà présenté des symptômes liés à l'épilepsie (crise ou perte de conscience) en présence de stimulations lumineuses, consultez votre médecin avant toute utilisation.

Les parents se doivent également d'être particulièrement attentifs à leurs enfants lorsqu'ils jouent avec des jeux vidéo. Si vous-même ou votre enfant présentez un des symptômes suivants : vertige, trouble de la vision, contraction des yeux ou des muscles, trouble de l'orientation, mouvement involontaire ou convulsion, perte momentanée de conscience, il faut cesser immédiatement de jouer et consulter un médecin.
