Solution
Insert the barrel connector from the power supply into the DC connector
on the back of the inMotion iMX2. After this connection is made, insert
the power supply into a wall outlet.

surge protector is switched on.
Plug another device into the same wall outlet to confirm the outlet is
working.

top of the unit. A blue LED will light around the button when the power

Install four AA batteries (not included) into the battery compartments on
the bottom of the inMotion iMX2 (two to each compartment). Make sure
the batteries are installed as illustrated in the battery compartments.
Turn on the inMotion iMX2 by pushing the power button located on the
top of the unit. A blue LED will light around the button when the power
is on.
