Beginner Panel Set
When KUMIITA veers off course, it will blink red and chime an error sound.
When KUMIITA's batteries are running low, it will blink red and yellow, and notify you by sound.
Always start KUMIITA on the Start Panel.
To experience the fundamentals of programming, KUMIITA must always be set on the Start Panel to begin.
Pick up KUMIITA and hold for 2 seconds, then set on the Start Panel.
KUMIITA has three volume levels: loud, medium and quiet.
Printed on the instruction manual (included) are icons to adjust the volume. These icons are located on the lower right back side of the instruction manual.
Pass KUMIITA over these icons and a sensor on the bottom of KUMIITA will read the icons and adjust the volume accordingly.
There is also an inset volume switch located on the bottom of KUMIITA. Push with a thin, pin-like object to adjust the volume.
KUMIITA is equipped with an auto power down feature that will give a chime notification then automatically shut OFF the power when KUMIITA is at rest for 3 minutes with the power switch in the ON position.
If KUMIITA automatically powers down, set the power switch located on the bottom to OFF and then back to ON to restart.
If you think KUMIITA's movement has become erratic, check the rollers (the ball parts that let KUMIITA move).
Moving them around with a finger, check for dirt, dust and grime. If the rollers appear dirty, clean by removing or wiping off unwanted material.
The program data is imprinted on the panels.
If the panel surface becomes dirty, wipe clean.
Please note that the panels may become unreadable if scratched or dented, so please use with care.
