Each time a button is pressed, “K” value increases.
However, once a button has been pressed, it is no longer taken into account.
“V” value increases in the manner of 0, 1, 2, 3... if [VOLUME] knob is turned clockwise, or it decreases in the manner of 0, 9, 8, 7... if [VOLUME] knob is turned counterclockwise.
8. When [ENTER] button is pressed after all LEDs and segments in fluorescent indicator tube light up, alternate segments in fluorescent indicator tube and LEDs would light up, all RGB LEDs would light up in red color. If you press [ENTER] button again, another half of alternate segments in fluorescent indicator tube and LEDs would light up, all RGB LEDs would light up in green color. Pressing [ENTER] button again would cause all segments in fluorescent indicator tube and LEDs light up, all RGB LEDs would light up in blue color. Pressing [ENTER] button again would turn off all segments in fluorescent indicator tube and all LEDs including RGB LEDs.
9. To release from this mode, press the buttons in the same manner as step 1, or disconnect the power cord.
