Safety Statements

Safety Statements

WARNING! The following safety precautions will increase the life of the Notebook PC. Follow all precautions and instructions. Except as described in this manual, refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Do not use damaged power cords, accessories, or other peripherals. Do not use strong solvents such as thinners, benzene, or other chemicals on or near the surface.

Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery pack(s) before cleaning. Wipe the Notebook PC using a clean cellulose sponge or chamois cloth dampened with a solution of nonabrasive detergent and a few drops of warm water and remove any extra moisture with a dry cloth.

DO NOT place on uneven or unstable work surfaces. Seek servicing if the casing has been damaged.

DO NOT place or drop objects on top and do not shove any foreign objects into the Notebook PC.

DO NOT press or touch the display panel. Do not place together with small items that may scratch or enter the Notebook PC.

DO NOT expose to strong magnetic or electrical fields.

DO NOT leave the Notebook PC on your lap or any part of the body while the Notebook PC is turned ON or is charging in order to prevent discomfort or injury from heat exposure.

DO NOT expose to or use near liquids, rain, or moisture.DO NOT use the modem during an electrical storm.

DO NOT expose to dirty or dusty environments.DO NOT operate during a gas leak.

DO NOT expose to extreme temperatures above 50˚C (122˚F) or to direct sunlight. Do not block the fan vents!

DO NOT expose to extreme temperatures (below 0˚C (32˚F), otherwise the Notebook PC may not boot.

Safety Statements

Transportation Precautions

To prepare the Notebook PC for transport, you should turn it OFF and disconnect all external peripherals to prevent damage to the connectors. The hard disk drive’s head retracts when the power is turned OFF to prevent scratching of the hard disk surface during transport. Therefore, you should not transport the Notebook PC while the power is still ON. Close the display panel and check that it is latched securely in the closed position to protect the keyboard and display panel.

Remove Floppy Disks

Make sure your floppy disk drive (external on some models) does not contain a diskette when transporting the floppy disk drive. When a diskette is inserted into the floppy disk drive, the eject button protrudes out. If you attempt to transport the floppy disk drive with a diskette in the drive, you risk damaging the eject button and also risk scratching the surface of the diskette when the floppy disk drive is jolted.

Cover Your Notebook PC

Use a carrying case such as the one supplied with your Notebook PC to protect it from dirt, water, shock, and scratches.

NOTE: The surface glaze is easily dulled if not properly cared for. Be careful not to rub or scrap the Notebook PC surfaces when transporting your Notebook PC.

Charge Your Batteries

If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your battery pack and any optional battery packs before going on long trips. Remember that the power adapter charges the battery pack as long as it is plugged into the computer and an AC power source. Be aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery pack when the Notebook PC is in use.

Airplane Precautions

Contact your airline if you want to use the Notebook PC on the airplane. Most airlines will have restrictions for using electronic devices. Most airlines will allow electronic use only between and not during takeoffs and landings.

CAUTION! There are three main types of airport security devices: X-raymachines (used on items placed on conveyor belts), magnetic detectors (used on people walking through security checks), and magnetic wands(hand-helddevices used on people or individual items). You can send your Notebook PC and diskettes through airport X- ray machines. However, it is recommended that you do not send your Notebook PC or diskettes through airport magnetic detectors or expose them to magnetic wands.

Safety Statements

UL Safety Notices

Required for UL 1459 covering telecommunications (telephone) equipment intended to be electrically connected to a telecommunication network that has an operating voltage to ground that does not exceed 200V peak, 300V peak-to-peak,and 105V rms, and installed or used in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70).

When using the Notebook PC modem, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:

Do not use the Notebook PC near water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool.

Do not use the Notebook PC during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.

Do not use the Notebook PC in the vicinity of a gas leak.

Required for UL 1642 covering primary (nonrechargeable) and secondary (rechargeable) lithium batteries for use as power sources in products. These batteries contain metallic lithium, or a lithium alloy, or a lithium ion, and may consist of a single electrochemical cell or two or more cells connected in series, parallel, or both, that convert chemical energy into electrical energy by an irreversible or reversible chemical reaction.

Do not dispose the Notebook PC battery pack in a fire, as they may explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions to reduce the risk of injury to persons due to fire or explosion.

Do not use power adapters or batteries from other devices to reduce the risk of injury to persons due to fire or explosion. Use only UL certified power adapters or batteries supplied by the manufacturer or authorized retailers.
