LITHIUM-ION BATTERY
The controller contains a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. Do not handle damaged or leaking lithium-ion batteries. If the built-in battery fluid leaks, stop using the product immediately and contact the appropriate PlayStation customer service helpline which can be found within the accompanying documentation. If the material gets into the eyes, do not rub. Immediately flush the eyes with clean water and seek medical attention.

If the material comes into contact with the skin or clothes, immediately rinse the affected area with clean water and consult your doctor. Do not allow the battery to come into contact with fire or subject it to extreme temperatures such as in direct sunlight, in a vehicle exposed to the sun, or near a heat source. Never attempt to open, crush, heat, or set fire to the controller or the battery. Do not leave the battery charging for a prolonged period when the controller is not in use.

SURROUNDINGS AND PLAY AREA

  • Wearing the VR headset completely blocks your ability to see your surroundings. To avoid causing an accident or injury, such as hitting or stepping on people, walls, furniture, or objects, or losing balance and falling, be aware of the following:
  • Before wearing the VR headset, make sure there is sufficient clear space around you. Check that there are no people, pets, objects, furniture, or stairs around you or in the Play Area. Check that the floor is stable and has an even surface.
  • The Play Area function requires clear space to define a sufficient area. It may not detect space completely accurately so make sure to leave a buffer space between walls, furniture, or anything else that you may trip over or collide with when setting up the Play Area.
  • While you are playing, make sure to keep young children and pets away  from the Play Area
  • Do not move around when using content that does not support Roomscale ( page 13).
  • Before beginning play, check that the VR headset cable is not wrapped around your body or limbs, and check frequently during play.
  • While wearing the VR headset, use caution when moving around. Avoid extreme or excessively fast movements of the head, limbs, or body.
  • In a see-through view, your field of view is narrow and your sense of depth is different from normal conditions. Failure to follow these precautions may cause an accident or injury, such as hitting people, walls, furniture, or objects, or losing balance and falling. Check your surroundings and move slowly and carefully.

SURROUNDINGS AND USE OF THE CONTROLLER

  • Be careful that you do not hit a person or object when you use the controller. If either of the controllers hits a person or object, it may cause an accident, injury, or malfunction. Observe the following when you use the controller.
  • Check that there is enough space around you before using the controller.
  • Do not use either of the controllers while the USB cable is connected.
  • Pass your hands through the straps attached to each controller and secure them to your wrists before use.
  • Hold each of the controllers firmly to prevent them from being thrown out of your hands. Do not shake either of the controllers with excessive force.

YOUNG CHILDREN INJURIES
Keep the product out of the reach of young children. Young children may swallow small parts, pull on cables, and cause the VR headset or the controller to fall, or wrap the cables around themselves, which may inflict injury or cause an accident or a malfunction.

Precautions

Discomfort to your skin
Do not use the VR headset, headphones, or headset if they cause discomfort to your skin. If symptoms do not subside even after discontinuing use, seek medical attention.

Static shock
When using the headset or headphones in particularly dry air conditions, you may sometimes experience a small and quick (static) shock on your ears. This is a result of static electricity accumulated in the body and is not a malfunction of your headset or headphones. This effect could be reduced by wearing clothes made from materials that do not easily generate static shock.

Wearing the VR headset

  • It is important that you properly wear the VR headset during use.
  • You can check how to wear the VR headset properly from your PS5
    console’s home screen by selecting Settings > Accessories > PlayStation VR2.
  • Do not overtighten the adjustment dial.
  • You can use the VR headset while wearing glasses. When you adjust the position of the scope, be careful not to hit the lenses with your glasses.
  • Regularly check the VR headset’s fit to ensure it is being worn properly.

Moisture condensation
If PS VR2 is moved directly from a cold location to a warm location, moisture may condense inside the VR headset or controller. If this occurs, the product may not operate properly. In this case, disconnect the VR headset cable from your PS5 console, turn off the controller, and leave it for several hours. If the product still does not operate properly, please contact customer support( page 22).

Unusual or unresponsive behaviour
Press the (power) button on the VR headset for at least seven seconds to force a shutdown, and then turn on the headset again. If the problem persists, restart the PS5 console.

High-temperature message
If the VR system’s internal temperature becomes elevated, a message will be displayed. In this case, turn off the VR headset and leave it unused for a while. Make sure that you are not using it in a hot area or with the vents blocked. If you continue using it in these conditions, the VR headset will not function properly. After the VR headset cools down, move it to a location with good ventilation, and then resume use.

VR headset screen

  • Keep the VR headset’s attachment sensor free from any obstacles. If the attachment sensor is blocked, the screen will not turn off automatically even if you remove the VR headset. If an image appears on the screen for an extended period, it might cause a screen burn, and a faint image might remain permanently on the screen.
  • Black (dark) pixels and continuously lit pixels may appear in certain locations on the screen. The appearance of such spots is a normal occurrence associated with screens and is not a sign of a system malfunction. Screens are made using highly precise technology. However, a very small number of dark pixels or continuously lit pixels may exist and color irregularities or brightness irregularities may be visible on each screen.

Liquid, dust, smoke, steam, and heat

  • Always ensure the product and its connectors are free of liquid, excess dust, and small particles.
  • Do not leave the product in the following areas during use, storage, or transportation.
  • Areas exposed to smoke or steam

  • Areas near heating appliances, areas exposed to direct sunlight, or areas that retain heat.

About PS VR2
Connect PS VR2 to your PS5 console and enjoy virtual reality (VR mode) in supported PS5 games.

When you’re in cinematic mode and wearing the VR headset, video and audio are output to the VR headset only.

Play Area

  • The area where you can safely play in VR mode while wearing the VR headset is called the Play Area. If you approach the edge of the area during gameplay, you’ll see a boundary line in VR mode. If you move outside of the area, the game pauses, and the screen changes to display your surroundings (see-through view). For your safety, do not leave the Play Area during gameplay.
  • The tracking camera on the VR headset scans the room to set up the Play Area. You can also expand or exclude parts of the area.  Always follow all on-screen instructions for setting up and safely playing in your Play Area.

You can enjoy 3D audio with the included headphones as well as your stereo headphones (analog or USB). When you use headphones or headsets with a headphone jack, connect them to your VR headset. When you use USB headphones or headsets, connect them to your PS5 console.
