To prevent breakage during transport, the fluorescent tubes may be come with a
vinyl cap covering the end of each tube. If the lamp is left ON for several
hours, the vinyl caps may emit a very slight harmless odor. If you have this
problem, you may remove these caps if you wish.
This lamp might not operate at all even if only one tube is defective. You will
find instructions for replacing tubes on the back of this sheet.

1) UNIT DOES NOT LIGHT
If the unit does not light 3 seconds after the switch is turned ON, please
check that the plug is well inserted into the outlet. If this fails, try other
outlets. If the problem persists, check that both fluorescent tubes are EQUALLY
well seated in the sockets (there should be no space whatsoever between the end
of the tube and the socket . Still no luck, try putting tubes in a microwave
oven, one at a time for no more than 3 seconds. If both tubes light, put them
back in lamp and try again. Still no luck, call us. We will try to help you.
The most common side-effects are eye and/or skin irritation and headaches.
All three problems can usually be resolved. They are most prevalent in people
with blue or green eyes, blonde or red hair, and/or sensitive skin. All these
problems can usually be overcome by gradually increasing use of lamp. First,
stop using light until eye or skin irritation clears up. Then start using light
gradually, for five minutes at a time. Maybe increase the distance you sit from
the lamp as well. Gradually, over a period of maybe two weeks, without
discomfort, you should be able to lengthen your exposure and shorten the
distance till you achieve about 10,000 Lux for 20 to 30 minutes.

in some skin creams), and some chemotherapy drugs can make you very sensitive to
