The VTech V.Smile is an interactive learning system that functions like a standard cartridge-style video game system. It has a controller and replaceable "Smartridges." The V.Smile can run off an AC adapter or batteries, but -- unlike portable systems -- it has no display. You must connect the V.Smile to your TV set using the audio/video cables connected to the main unit.
Turn off the TV and the V.Smile system.
Locate the composite audio/video inputs on your TV. Most TVs have the connections on the back, but some have additional connections on the right or left.
Plug the yellow connector into the yellow video jack.
Plug the red and white audio cables into the red and white coded jacks. If your TV is monaural, use the white connector.
If your TV doesn't have any audio/video connections, you can connect the V.Smile through a VCR or other auxiliary device. Plug the connectors on the V.Smile into the audio/video input jacks on the device.
Test the power source before plugging in the V.Smile. You can use three C batteries or an optional AC adapter.
