Installing 802.11b Radio Card (if applicable)

Note: This information applies only if you have a PB41 Printer with an 802.11b Radio.

Before installing the 802.11b Radio Card ensure that the protective battery tab strips are in place or remove the batteries before installing the radio card.

Your PB41 Printer with an 802.11b radio has been configured at the factory. FCC mandates that the radio card not be installed for shipment. The following information guides you through the process of installing the radio card.

The radio card is packed separately in an anti-static plastic bag taped to the inside of the printer box.

1 Remove the radio card cap.

2With the logo facing down, insert the radio card between the foam and the radio card strap.

3Carefully push the card into the connector until it is fully seated.

4 Replace the radio card cap.

Before Using Your Printer For The First

Time

Remove the protective tab strips underneath the batteries. They are placed there to keep your printer from discharging during shipment.

5Push against the battery lock tab and lift the battery up before pulling on the protective tab strips. These tabs prevent the battery contacts from touching and therefore, no charging occurs.

6If your printer won’t charge after removing the protective tabs, check for and remove any residue in the battery pin area.
