The installation and operations documentation and control equipment are often shipped inside the crated sign. The location of these items is indicated by a large label attached to the display when it leaves the factory. The items should be removed from the sign and kept in a secure place until needed.
Controller accessories may ship separately from the display.
In general, all orders are shipped F.O.B. Des Moines, Iowa and freight is arranged by the factory on a “prepay and add” basis. Any shipment via a third-party carrier, arranged by the buyer or buyer’s agent, becomes the property of the buyer upon loading at the seller dock. IMPORTANT: Please inspect your sign before the carrier leaves your premises and note all visible damage on the bill of lading and report to the carrier immediately.
Next, check what you’ve received against the packing list. Because the display and the controller may arrive separately, please ensure that all equipment has arrived before beginning sign assembly.
A packet of documentation ships with each display. Typically this includes a packing list, operating manuals for the controller and installation drawings if requested. Other documentation may include:

If the control does have power, wait for the signal lock to re-establish. There is a built in delay time that holds the wireless receiver at the channel it was on for at least 10 seconds before it starts to look for a signal on other channels. If after a minute or so the signal hasn’t come back, try the following:
Turn scoreboard and control power off, wait a minute, turn the scoreboard back on then turn the control back on.
If the control is transmitting in the SEL mode, change to a different channel in both the control and the scoreboard you’re trying to run. Be sure to turn control and scoreboard power off during the change. OR turn the control off, set the transmit mode switch to the ALL SCBDS position, wait a minute, then turn the control back on.
If there’s no response to either of these efforts, run the scoreboard with conventional data cable for the duration of the game until you have more time to determine the cause of the problem.
If you exercise this option, be sure to set the wireless MP-70’s channel switch (located on the back panel) to position E, F or 0, and the transmit mode switch to SEL. This will turn the radio transmitter off and prevent damage to the scoreboard processor.
