We recommend that you read the instruction manual thoroughly in order to learn how to fully operate and enjoy your NOVAG STAR RUBY. The LCD chessboard and the function section at the bottom of the LCD screen are touch-sensitive and can be accessed with the special Pen, located on the left side of the unit. Always use this pen when operating the unit to avoid scratching or breaking the LCD glass, which is not covered by the limited warranty. The LCD screen is protected by a cover. To flip the protective cover back, please pull the button on the right side of the unit to release it.
