You have just acquired the ultimate video game system!
Your Odyssey2 is even more sophisticated than most arcade games. It employs state-of-the-art electronic technology which was unthinkable only a few years ago.
It uses a tiny microprocessor, which is a miniature computer, to perform complex electronic functions formerly accomplished only by far more bulky and expensive equipment.
Your Odyssey2 has been engineered to give you many years of fun and entertainment. It is quite simple to set up and operate, but it is very important that you read and understand the information contained in this manual first.
1 COMPUTERIZED CONSOLE UNIT
2 HAND CONTROLS
1 TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR
1 AC ADAPTER CORD
1 GAME CARTRIDGE
1 GAME CORD
First Install the Antenna Connector
Your Odyssey2 will interconnect with any color or black and white television set. All you need is a flat-head screwdriver.
If you have a VHF antenna utilizing flat twin-lead wire, simply disconnect it from the VHF terminals on the rear of your television set.
Reconnect this wire to the terminals on the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR.
Now connect the flat twin-lead wire from the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR to the VHF terminals on the back of your television set.
If your VHF antenna cable is round with a screw-type connector (75 ohm), you will need to purchase a 75 ohm to 300 ohm Balun to permit connection of your TV antenna to the Odyssey2 TV Antenna-Game Switch. The 75 ohm to 300 ohm Balun's are available from your local Magnovox Dealer or any television service organization.
If you are using a 75 ohm round cable, your television will probably have a set of jumper plates or a switch which must be moved to select VHF-300 ohm terminals. Your television instruction manual will be of help.
Note: If you have only a UHF antenna, do not disconnect it from your television set. Just connect the flat twin-lead wire from the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR to the VHF terminals on the back of your television set.
Use the MOUNTING HOOK supplied to hang the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR from the back of your television set. First insert the hook in the back of the connector; then insert the end through one of the ventilating holes on the back of your TV.

Now Connect the Console
Then plug the GAME CORD from the CONSOLE into the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR.
Check to make sure the Power SWITCH on the CONSOLE is in the OFF position. UP is OFF. DOWN is ON.
Plug the AC ADAPTER jack into the CONSOLE. Important: Make certain the ADAPTER jack is completely inserted into the CONSOLE receptacle.
Plug the AC ADAPTER into any standard 120 volt electrical outlet.
Set the switch on the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR to GAME.
Set the channel of your TV to the unused channel (3 or 4) in your area.
Your Odyssey2 is normally set at the factory for operation on Channel 3 of your television set. If a television station is transmitting on Channel 3 in your area, you can switch your Odyssey2 to Channel 4 operation.
Turn the CONSOLE over with the CARTRIDGE slot facing away from you. Remove the three screws from the bottom of the CONSOLE.
Carefully remove the bottom of the CONSOLE. You will find the channel selector switch in a metal box located to the right of the printed circuit board at the upper right hand corner of the CONSOLE. Move the switch from the Channel 3 position to the Channel 4 position - then gently replace the bottom of the CONSOLE.
Insert the Cartridge
Make sure that the POWER SWITCH on the CONSOLE is in the OFF position (UP). This will protect the electronic components of both the CONSOLE and the CARTRIDGE. Hold the Odyssey2 CARTRIDGE so that the label side is facing you and reads right side up.
Insert the CARTRIDGE carefully in the cartridge slot on the top of the CONSOLE. Push it in firmly.
When you remove the CARTRIDGE, always make sure that the POWER SWITCH on the CONSOLE is in the OFF position.
Be sure your TV is set to the unused channel (3 or 4) in your area.
Press the POWER SWITCH on the CONSOLE to the ON position (DOWN).
SELECT GAME will appear on your TV screen. If it should not appear, press the RESET key on the CONSOLE keyboard. If SELECT GAME still does not appear on the screen, check to make sure the AC ADAPTER jack is completely plugged into the CONSOLE and be sure that the CARTRIDGE is properly inserted.
The sounds of the game will be coming from the speaker on your television set. Adjust your TV volume control to a comfortable level.
Adjust the fine tuning control of your television set to get the best possible picture.
See the OFFICIAL GAME RULES booklet that accompanies each CARTRIDGE for specific game instructions.
WHEN YOU WANT TO RETURN TO REGULAR TV PROGRAMMING, push the POWER SWITCH of the CONSOLE to the OFF position (UP).
Set the switch on the TV ANTENNA CONNECTOR to TV.
Do not remove or insert CARTRIDGES unless the CONSOLE is turned off!
Guide the CARTRIDGES into the cartridge slot of the CONSOLE. Don't use force.
Clean exterior parts of the CONSOLE and CARTRIDGES with a soft, slightly damp cloth. Don't immerse them in water or spill liquids on them.
Keep the CONSOLE, CARTRIDGES, and HAND CONTROLLERS away from extreme heat.
Avoid puncturing the keyboard. (Do not use pencils, penpoints or other sharp objects to press keys.)
Always turn the POWER SWITCH of the CONSOLE to off when not in use.
Only connect the CONSOLE to standard AC electrical outlets.
IMPORTANT: Turn off your Odyssey2 each time you have finished playing the games. Then unplug the AC ADAPTOR from the 120 v. outlet. Note: If you leave the same game pattern on your TV screen for more than 6-8 hours continuously, there is a possibility that the game pattern could be permanently imprinted on the picture tube screen.
