To use the HappyLight Deluxe Sunshine Supplement Light System:
- Plug into properly grounded outlet.
- Turn the unit on using the on/off switch. Allow a few minutes at the start of each session for bulbs to achieve full illumination.
- Position yourself facing the HappyLight. Light therapy consists of sitting close to the Sunshine Simulator with eyes open. Do not stare directly into the unit. While staying oriented toward the light feel free to engage in other activities such as reading, checking emails, hobby making and crafting, sewing, needlepoint, painting, or working at a computer/desk.
- Time Exposure Recommendation for 10,000 Lux treatment:
|Distance From Unit
||Approx. 2 Hours
||Approx. 1 Hour
||Approx. 1/2 Hour
Usage time depends upon your body and how it responds to light. Typical exposure is 30 minutes per day. The ideal exposure time is in the morning, soon after waking. You should experience results within a week of daily exposure. It is recommended that you limit your exposure to the light during the evening, as it might effect your ability to fall asleep. Each person's sensitivity to light is different. It is important to establish a distance and schedule that is comfortable for you. Verilux recommends you use the light regularly and at about the same time each day. It is not necessary to sit in front of the unit continuously. You can divide the time into several mini sessions. Continue to use the HappyLight daily until you feel an improvement in your mood and activity level.
Note: Tinted glasses will reduce the amount of light reaching your eyes.

Place the screw (included) into the wall leaving approximately 3mm between the screw head and the wall. Be sure to use the included anchor if mounting into sheet rock or other soft material. Insert the screw head into the hole located in the upper part of unit. (Figure 2)

Bulb Replacement Instructions
Step 1: Opening the Lens Cover
Place the HappyLight on its back on a large flat surface. Press down gently on the center of the lens cover. This releases the locking tabs located under the grey handles. Open the lens cover by grasping the grey handles with your hands. Remove the lens and gently place it nest to the unit with the logo face up.
Step 2: Opening the Bulb Clips
Locate the clear plastic clips across each fluorescent tube. Put a finger under the clear plastic clip on the outer side and pull up (See Figure 7). The clip should pop open. Repeat on other side.
Step 3: Removing Bulbs
Gently lift the fluorescent tube up and out of the clip holder. Grasp the tube by the white plastic base with the Verilux logo and remove the tube from the socket by pulling the tube towards the black cushions pads (See Figure 8). Repeat removal of the second bulb.
Step 4: Installing New Bulbs
Ensure the HappyLight is on its back on a large flat surface. Hold the fluorescent tubes by the white plastic base, not the glass. Ensure the Verilux logo is facing up. Line up the pins on the base of the fluorescent tube with the holes in the socket. Gently push the bulb into the socket until it snaps securely in place. Repeat on other side.
Step 5: Closing the Bulb Clips
Ensure the plastic bulb clips are centered on the white protective bands. Gently push on the upper portion of the fluorescent tube until it slides snuggly into the clear plastic clip. Close the clip over the tube. The clip will click when fastened. Repeat on other side.
Step 6: Replacing the Lens Cover
Align the lens cover over the open face of the unit with the HappyLight logo at the bottom of the lamp. Place your thumbs one inch beyond the grey handles towards the center of the unit while your other fingers grasp under the lip of the grey handles (see Figure 10). Pull outward with your fingers while pushing down on the lens with your thumbs. Release your fingers to snap the lens into place.
Plug your HappyLight into an electrical socket and turn it on to ensure the bulbs were properly installed into their sockets. If the bulbs do not illuminate, ensure the bulbs are fully seated into the sockets.
Care & Cleaning
Your HappyLight Deluxe Sunshine Supplement Light System is made from high quality materials that will last for many years with minimum care. You may want to periodically clean the inside of the lens and outside parts, using a mild non-abrasive cleaner and soft cloth. When cleaning, make sure you have turned off and unplugged the unit, and allowed sufficient time for the unit to cool.
DO NOT USE SOLVENTS OR CLEANERS CONTAINING ABRASIVES, OR AMMONIA BASED CLEANERS.
Cleaning the lens is important for maintaining optimum light output. Periodically remove the lens (refer to lens removal instructions) and clean with soft damp cloth. All liquid should be properly wiped away and dried prior to restoring power.
