IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Your Unit is designed and manufactured to operate within defined design limits, and misuse may result in electric shock or fire. To prevent your Unit from being damaged, the following rules should be observed for its installation, use, and maintenance. Please read the following safety instructions before operating your Unit. Keep these instructions in a safe place for future reference.

  • Heed all warnings.
  • Follow all instructions.
  • Do not use this Unit near water.
  • Clean only with a dry cloth.
  • Do not block any ventilation openings. Install by the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other Units (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
  • Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong is provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for the replacement of the obsolete outlet.
  • Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at the ends where the plug is located, near convenience receptacles, or where they exit from the Unit.
  • Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
  • Use only with the stand, tripod, or bracket specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the Unit. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/Unit combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
  • Unplug this Unit during lightning storms or when unused for long periods.
  • Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the Unit has been damaged in any way, such as when the power supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the Unit, the Unit has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
  • To reduce the risk of electric shock or component damage, switch off the power before connecting other components to your Unit.
  • Unplug the power cord before cleaning your Unit. A damp cloth is sufficient for cleaning. Do not use a liquid or a spray cleaner on your Unit. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
  • Always use the accessories recommended by the manufacturer to ensure compatibility.
  • When moving your Unit from an area of low temperature to an area of high temperature, condensation may form in the housing. Wait before turning on your Unit to avoid causing fire, electric shock, or component damage.
  • Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the Unit are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of your Unit and to protect it from overheating, be sure these openings are not blocked or covered. Do not place your Unit in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
  • Never push any object into the slots and openings on your Unit. Do not place any objects on the top of your Unit. Doing so could short-circuit parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids on your Unit.
  • Do not block the subwoofer ports. Allow for 1-2 inches of space around all sides for ventilation.
  • WARNING: Exposure to loud sounds can damage your hearing causing hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ears). With continued exposure to loud noises, ears may become accustomed to the sound level, which may result in permanent damage to hearing without any noticeable discomfort.
  • When connected to a power outlet, power is always flowing into your Unit. To disconnect the power, unplug the power cord.
  • Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
  • The wall socket should be located near your Unit and be easily accessible.
  • Keep your Unit away from moisture. Do not expose your Unit to rain or moisture. If water penetrates your Unit, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer. Continuous use in this case may result in fire or electric shock.
  • Do not use your Unit if any abnormality occurs. If any smoke or odor becomes apparent, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer immediately. Do not try to repair your Unit yourself.
  • Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances. If your Unit is dropped and the housing is damaged, the internal components may function abnormally. Unplug the power
    cord immediately and contact your dealer for repair. Continued use of your Unit may cause fire or electric shock.
  • Do not install your Unit in an area with heavy dust or high humidity. Operating your Unit in environments with heavy dust or high humidity may cause fire or electric shock.
  • Ensure that the power cord and any other cables are unplugged before moving your Unit.
  • When unplugging your Unit, hold the power plug, not the cord. Pulling on the power cord may damage the wires inside the cord and cause fire or electric shock. When
    your Unit will not be used for an extended period, unplug the power cord.
  • To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not touch the connector with wet hands.
  • Insert the remote control batteries according to the instructions. Incorrect polarity may cause the battery to leak which can damage the remote control or injure the operator.
  • Read and follow all warnings printed on the Unit.
  • WARNING: This equipment is not waterproof. To prevent a fire or shock hazard, do not place any container filled with liquid near the equipment (such as a vase or
    flower pot) or expose it to dripping, splashing, rain, or moisture.
  • CAUTION: Danger of explosion or fire if batteries are mistreated. Replace only with the same or specified type.
  • Do not leave the batteries exposed to direct sunlight for a long period with doors and windows closed. Do not disassemble the batteries or dispose of them in the fire.
  • If the main wall plug or the appliance coupler is disconnected, the disconnected device will remain readily operable upon reconnection to an appropriate power source.
  • No open flames, such as lighted candles, should be placed on the Unit.
  • The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the ventilation openings with items, such as newspapers, tablecloths, curtains, etc.
  • The equipment shall be used at a maximum of 35 degrees C ambient temperature.

WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture.

Bluetooth Pairing

To pair the sound bar with a Bluetooth device:

  1. Press and hold the Bluetooth button on the sound bar or remote for five (5) seconds.

VIZIO M-Series All-in-One M213ad-K8 Immersive Sound Bar 12

In Bluetooth pairing mode, the LED indicators on the display panel on the front of the soundbar will light up from left to right continuously. Once the device is paired, the LED indicators will stop flashing.

Using Bluetooth Mode

  1. Your sound bar supports music streaming from devices with Bluetooth capability.
  2. (Device compatibility will vary, see your device’s documentation for more information.)
  3. Once you have paired your source device to the sound bar your device should remain paired. (within range)
  4. If the source is changed back to Bluetooth, any paired Bluetooth device will reconnect automatically.
  5. If the input is changed, the Bluetooth device will disconnect (will stay connected if Auto VA BT is on).

Maximizing Signal

A Bluetooth signal has a range of up to 30 feet.
Keep in mind that Bluetooth is a compressed audio format, so streamed music may lose some integrity when compared to a wired connection. Try the following if your sound quality is less than optimal:

  • If you hear any break-up or disconnect while streaming music from your device, move the source device closer to the soundbar.
  • Be sure that there are no solid obstructions in the line of sight between the sound bar and the source device.
  • Other wireless devices can affect Bluetooth range, including wireless security cameras, wireless video baby monitors, cordless phones, and microwave ovens. Turning off or moving these devices may improve Bluetooth range.

Binding Arbitration Agreement; Class Action Waiver (U.S. Residents Only)
UNLESS YOU HAVE BROUGHT AN ELIGIBLE CLAIM IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR HAVE OPTED OUT AS DESCRIBED BELOW, ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR VIZIO PRODUCT, INCLUDING ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS WARRANTY, A BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY, OR THE VIZIO PRODUCT’S SALE, CONDITION OR PERFORMANCE, WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION AND CONDUCTED BY A SINGLE ARBITRATOR APPOINTED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION, BY ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND ITS SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES. You may learn more about the American Arbitration Association and its rules for arbitration by visiting www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879.

Since this warranty concerns a transaction in interstate or international commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act will apply. The filing fees to begin and carry out arbitration will be shared between you and VIZIO, but in no event will your fees ever exceed the amount allowable by the American Arbitration Association, at which point VIZIO will cover all additional administrative fees and expenses. VIZIO waives its right to recover attorneys’ fees in connection with any arbitration under this warranty. If you are the prevailing party in an arbitration to which the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes applies, then you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees as the arbitrator may determine.

The dispute will be governed by the laws of the state or territory in which you resided at the time of your purchase (if in the United States). The place of arbitration will be Irvine, California, or your county of residence (if in the United States). The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, except as may be required by statute. The arbitrator will not award consequential damages, and any award will be limited to monetary damages and will include no equitable relief, injunction, or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount.

Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator will be binding and final, except for any right of appeal provided by the Federal Arbitration Act, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Except as may be required by law, neither you nor VIZIO nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration under this warranty without the prior written consent of you and VIZIO. ANY DISPUTE, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION, IN COURT, OR OTHERWISE, WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

VIZIO AND YOU AGREE THAT NO PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED AS A CLASS ACTION, A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. NO ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WILL BE JOINED, CONSOLIDATED, OR COMBINED WITH ANOTHER ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ANY SUCH ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING.

In addition, you may pursue a claim in small claims court in your county of residence (if in the United States) or in Orange County, California. In such case the provisions of the section titled “Binding Arbitration Agreement; Class Action Waiver (U.S. Residents)” will not apply.

Exclusions and Limitations
TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THERE ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES OTHER THAN THOSE DESCRIBED ABOVE. ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WILL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD SET FORTH ABOVE. SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

VIZIO WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, COMMERCIAL LOSS, LOST REVENUE OR LOST PROFITS, OR OTHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF VIZIO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF THE REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. INSTEAD OF ANY OTHER REMEDY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING VIZIO’S NEGLIGENCE, ALLEGED DAMAGE, OR DEFECTIVE GOODS, NO MATTER WHETHER SUCH DEFECTS ARE DISCOVERABLE OR LATENT), VIZIO MAY, AT ITS SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE OPTION AND IN ITS DISCRETION, REPAIR OR REPLACE YOUR PRODUCT, OR REFUND ITS PURCHASE PRICE. AS NOTED, SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state and province to province. This warranty applies to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law.

General
No employee or agent of VIZIO may modify this warranty. If any term of this warranty, other than the class action waiver, is found to be unenforceable, that term will be severed from this warranty and all other terms will remain in effect. If the class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entire section titled “Binding Arbitration Agreement; Class Action Waiver (U.S. Residents Only)” will not apply. This warranty applies to the maximum extent not prohibited by law.
