Learn how to use electronic devices properly

Always ensure that you know how to use an electronic device and what is expected before you actually use it. If you haven’t used the device before, read the instruction pamphlet that comes with the product. It will also be beneficial to read the warning section as well as it may contain useful information about the device that you may need to know before using it for the first time.

You could alternatively ask someone who has used the device before to show you how it works.
