4.Connect Power Source

•Locate the output jack behind the Seville chair in the lower right-hand corner of the chair back (if viewed from behind). The input jack will be found along the side of the chair cushion near the control panel. Making sure to line up the arrows, firmly insert the input jack into the output jack to connect the massage mechanism with the control panel. See Figure 7.
TIP: You may wish to thread the input jack just inside the edge of the chair back frame before connecting it so that the cords are less visible.

Power Adapter Instructions

Connect the Adapter jack to the massage chair power receptacle located along the right side of the chair. Once inserted, plug the other end into an AC power outlet. Use only the AC power Adapter provided with this unit.

AC Power Adapter Information

Your massage chair is powered by an attached custom AC home Adapter. Use only the supplied AC home Adapter as other similar-looking adapters may cause irreparable damage to the unit and will void your warranty.

Massage Chair and Control Panel Instructions

The control panel is located along the side of the chair cushion as shown (Figure 8). It opens away from the chair to expose the control buttons(Figure 9). Press the POWER button once to activate the control panel. The LED indicator will illuminate. T o deactivate, press again. For complete instructions, please see page  11.

The Seville chair includes an integrated, layered cushion for customized comfort as shown in Figure 10. You may choose to use this cushion or flip it behind the chair back to have less padding covering the massage mechanism. It is most likely that you will have the cushion in the forward position when the chair is not in use or when just sitting in the chair. When enjoying the massage function, the use of the cushion will depend on your personal preference — you may soften the massage intensity by using the layered cushion and strengthen the intensity by not using it.
