Chapter 2
Using the Stylistic 3500 Pen Tablet
This chapter covers the fundamental concepts, basic system operation and use, and
system functions of the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet. You should familiarize yourself with
this information before you attempt to operate the system.
System States
2
Before you begin using the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet, review the different system states
(or modes) that the pen tablet can use. Being familiar with these system states will
help you determine whether it is appropriate to turn on, resume, suspend, or shut
down the system when you begin a new session or end your current session. System
behavior for each system state is described briefly in the following, with each system
state listed in decreasing order of power usage:
• On state
The system is running and the display screen is on.
• Idle state
Some system functions are regulated or turned off to conserve power. The display
screen may be turned off. The system returns to the On state when stylus activity
or other input is detected.
• Suspend-to-RAM mode
System operation is suspended. Most system functions are turned off to conserve
power. Power to memory is on, maintaining data in programs that were running
before system operation was suspended. The system does not respond to the
stylus or other input when in Suspend-to-RAM mode. Refer to the “Resuming
System Operation” section later in this chapter for information on returning the
system to the On state.
• Save-to-Disk mode
System operation is suspended. All system functions are turned off to conserve
power. Active data in programs that were running before suspending system
operation is stored on the hard disk drive. The system does not respond to the
stylus or other input. Refer to the “Resuming System Operation” section later in
this chapter for information on returning the system to the On state.
15
• Off state
All system functions are turned off to conserve power. The system does not
respond to the stylus or other input. The system boots at the next system
power-on.
Note:
The system consumes the same amount of power whether it is in Save-to-Disk
mode or the Off state.
Your system may be configured to enter some of these states automatically after a
period of inactivity to conserve battery power.
When you use the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet, you can change the current system state
in a number of ways, depending on the current state of the system. To determine the
current system state, observe the Power icon in the Status display. Table 2-1 gives the
different system states represented by the Power icon and describes how you can
change the system state from the current state.

16
Your system may be configured to use either Suspend-to-RAM mode or Save-to-Disk mode.
Using the Stylistic 3500 Pen Tablet
Powering Up the Pen Tablet
2
Follow the procedure below to start the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet. Before you begin,
confirm that the system is in the Off state. To do so, observe the Status display. If the
Power icon is not visible in the Status display, the system is in the Off state or in
Save-to-Disk mode and it is safe to perform this procedure. If the Power icon is
visible (either blinking or on continuously), do not perform this procedure. See
“System States” earlier in this chapter for details on operational modes represented
by the Power icon.
1. Press the Power On/Suspend/Resume button to start the system.
2. Ensure that the battery pack in your pen tablet is sufficiently charged, or connect
an external power source such as the AC adapter or auto adapter to your pen
tablet. See “Status Display” in Chapter 1 to determine the percentage of charge
represented by the Battery Gauge icon in the Status display.
After performing system initialization, the system starts the operating system
installed on the hard disk drive. Once the operating system is running, you can use
the system.
Shutting Down the System
2
Follow these steps to shut down and turn off your system:
1. If system operation has been suspended, resume system operation. See
“Resuming System Operation” later in this chapter for details.
2. Save your work and close all running programs.
3. Choose Shut Down from the Windows (98, NT Workstation, or 2000) Start menu.
4. Carry out the Shut Down command.
The system is now in the Off state.
Powering Up the Pen Tablet
17
Suspending System Operation
2
The Stylistic 3500 pen tablet allows you to suspend the system operation without
closing programs or exiting the operating system. Use this feature to conserve battery
power when a system shutdown is not practical or when the battery needs to be
changed.
To suspend system operation:
1. Press the Suspend/Resume button, or carry out the Standby command from your
operating system or power management program. (If your system is configured
to suspend operation using Save-to-Disk mode, which is explained later in this
procedure, a message is displayed while data is saved to your hard disk.)
Caution
If you are replacing the battery pack, wait until system operation is
suspended and the power icon is flashing before you remove the battery
pack. Failure to do so could result in loss of your unsaved data.
The Power icon either flashes (Suspend-to-RAM) or is not displayed
(Save-to-Disk) when system operation is suspended, depending on how your
system is configured. At this point, programs that were running are stopped,
active data is saved, and the system enters one of two different low-power states,
or suspend modes, as explained in the following paragraphs.
2. Observe the Power icon in the Status display to determine which suspend mode
your system is using.
• Power icon is blinking: Suspend-to-RAM mode
In this mode, active data is saved by maintaining power to RAM while most
other system components are powered off. The Battery Gauge icon in the
Status display indicates the battery charge level.
• Power icon is not displayed: Save-to-Disk mode
In this mode, active data is stored on the hard disk drive and power usage is
reduced to the same level used in the Off state. When the system is in
Save-to-Disk mode, the Battery Gauge icon is not visible in the Status display.
In this mode, there is no danger of losing data if battery power is lost.
If you have successfully performed this procedure, system operation is now
suspended. Refer to “Resuming System Operation” later in this chapter to resume
18
Using the Stylistic 3500 Pen Tablet
system operation. Also, note the following with regard to suspending system
operation:
• You can remove the battery pack while the system is in Suspend-to-RAM or
Save-to-Disk modes in order to install a charged battery pack. To prevent losing
unsaved data, wait until system operation has suspended before you remove the
battery pack.
• Your system may be configured to suspend operation automatically after a period
of inactivity.
• Your system may be configured to enter Save-to-Disk mode automatically after a
period of time in Suspend-to-RAM mode.
• The system uses a small amount of battery power when in Suspend-to-RAM
mode. Eventually, the battery will become fully discharged.
Note:
If you will not be using the system for an extended period of time, shut down the
system rather than using Suspend-to-RAM mode.
• If the battery pack charge drops to a Low-Battery Warning level while the system
is running, the system will beep periodically. If this occurs, suspend system
operation, shut down the system, or attach an external power source, such as the
AC adapter, to the pen tablet.
• If the battery charge drops to a Critically Low level while the system is running,
the system is forced into a pre-selected mode (Suspend-to-RAM or Save-to-Disk).
If this occurs, you must either install a charged battery pack, or connect an
appropriate external power source such as the AC adapter before you can resume
system operation. (If the battery charge drops to a Critically Low level while the
system is in Suspend-to-RAM mode, the system stays in Suspend-to-RAM mode
until power is restored or totally dissipated.)
• Suspending system operation interrupts data communications; therefore, some
programs may block the system from suspending to prevent an interruption.
• The suspend action of the Suspend/Resume button may be disabled to prevent
accidental interruption. If this is the case, pressing the Suspend/Resume button
will not suspend system operation as described here. (In this case, suspend mode
can only be achieved using the system software). Contact your local help desk or
reseller if your system configuration is not suitable.
• If your system is equipped with a PC Card that allows you to connect to a wired
or wireless network, you may be logged off the network after a period of
inactivity while system operation is suspended. Contact your network
administrator or help desk for details on log-off parameters for your network.
Suspending System Operation
19
Resuming System Operation
2
To resume system operation, (from either Suspend-to-RAM or Save-to-Disk modes),
press the Suspend/Resume button.
• From Suspend-to-RAM mode
Status lights indicate that the system state is changing. It may take up to a minute
before the system returns to the On state and system operation resumes. Note that
the display turns on shortly before the stylus becomes active due to the power-up
sequences observed by the system.
• From Save-to-Disk mode
Active data is read from the hard disk drive, and the system returns to the On
state after a short period of time.
Note that power to several system components must be restored before system
operation resumes. Allow sufficient time for system operation to resume before
attempting to use the system. If your system uses Save-to-Disk mode, it will take
longer to resume operation as compared to using Suspend-to-RAM mode. Time is
needed to read data from the hard disk drive.
• Use the system as you normally would once system operation resumes.
All programs resume at the point where execution stopped when system operation
was suspended.
Using the stylus
2
You can use the Stylistic 3500 stylus (also called a “pen”) to generate and create
electronic “ink”, to select items, and to navigate through programs on the pen tablet.
The stylus can be used like a two button mouse when used in conjunction with the
right-mouse button hotpad. Programs which support handwriting recognition allow
you to write characters directly on the screen with the stylus and then translate your
printed text into keyboard-style input.
Caution
• Ensure that a screen protector is installed on the pen tablet
screen before you use the stylus. The warranty does not
cover a screen that is scratched as a result of not using a
screen protector.
• Use only the stylus provided with your pen tablet. Do not use
substitutes that were not designed for the Stylistic 3500.
20
Using the Stylistic 3500 Pen Tablet
To toggle between using the stylus for inking and using it as a mouse, click on the
small pen icon in the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
Here are some hints on using the stylus similar to a two-button mouse on a desktop
system:
• To select an object, tap the mouse tip on the object once. This functions like a
mouse button click with the left mouse button.
• To “double-click” an object, tap twice on the object quickly.
• To generate a “right mouse button single-click”, tap on the hotpad icon once and
then tap once on the display. To generate a “right mouse button double click”,
tap on the hotpad icon once and then double tap on the display.
• To move, or “drag”, an object on the screen, place the stylus tip directly over the
object, then as you hold the stylus tip against the screen, move the stylus.
Calibrating the stylus
2
Calibration of the stylus adjusts the cursor position on the screen relative to the
position of the stylus tip. You calibrate the stylus to adjust the distance error between
where the stylus actually touches the screen and where the system “thinks” the
stylus is touching. If the event you wish to invoke is not displayed under the stylus
tip when you use the stylus, you should calibrate the stylus.
Stylus calibration may be required due to the following situations:
• The stylus is being used for the first time.
• The previous user of the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet writes with the opposite hand or
at a different stylus angle.
• The system has been in use for some time and the stylus has not been recalibrated.
• The original system image has been restored.
Using the stylus
21
To Calibrate the Stylus
2
1. Open the Control Panel from the Start|Settings menu, and double-tap the Pen
Configuration icon. Select the Calibration property sheet, then click on Pen
Calibration.
2. Position the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet as you normally would during use. Be sure to
hold the stylus at the angle that you regularly use. Touch the screen only with the
stylus tip; inadvertently touching the screen with your finger or hand during the
calibration process, may result in faulty calibration.
3. Perform the calibration steps according to the instructions on the screen. The
calibration utility displays a cross-hair symbol in the middle and corners of the
screen, one corner at a time. Hold the stylus as you normally would while using
the system and, as accurately as possible, tap the center of each crosshair as it is
displayed.
A dialog box is displayed after you tap the last of the four cross-hair symbols. Tap
the screen within 20 seconds if you wish to save your new calibration settings. If
you don’t tap the screen within 20 seconds, the default calibration settings will be
used.
4. When the Verify New Pen Calibration Settings window appears, choose one of
the following steps.
• If you are satisfied that you tapped the cross-hairs accurately, tap Yes. The
taps that you performed in step 3 are then used to calibrate the screen.
• If you do not want to use the new calibration, tap No.
• If you want to enter a new calibration, tap Recalibrate. The calibration
instructions reappear.
If you have successfully performed the procedure above, the stylus is now
recalibrated, and you can use the system as you normally would.
Replacing the Stylus
With use, the stylus tip may become worn or may pick up foreign particles that can
scratch the screen. A damaged or worn tip may not move freely, causing
unpredictable results when using the stylus. If your stylus exhibits these problems,
contact your reseller to purchase replacements.

Charging the Battery Pack
2
The Stylistic 3500 battery pack can be charged while it is installed in the pen tablet.
To do so:
1. Connect a DC power source, such as the AC adapter, to the DC input connector
on the pen tablet. The DC Input icon appears in the Status display. If the battery
pack charge level is below 90%, the battery pack begins charging and the
Charging icon appears in the Status display. If the battery pack charge is 90% or
higher when you connect DC power, the battery pack will not charge, preventing
overcharging the battery pack.
2. Look at the Battery Gauge icon in the Status display to determine the percent of
charge in the battery pack. See “Status Display” in Chapter 1 of this manual for a
description of the Battery Gauge icon.
As long as DC power remains connected to the pen tablet, the charging process
continues until the battery pack charge reaches 100%. Charge times shown in Table
2-2 are for a fully discharged battery pack charging both while the pen tablet is and is
not in use.
Table 2-2 Battery Pack Charging Time

* Depends upon the applications in use.
Also note the following with respect to charging the battery pack:
• You can use the system, suspend system operation, or shut down and turn off the
system without interrupting the charging process; however, using the system
while the battery pack is charging will cause the battery pack to charge at a slower
rate, as noted in Table 2-2.
• As noted in the procedure above, the system will not begin charging the battery
pack if the battery pack charge level is 90% or higher when the system is initially
connected to external DC power. (This prevents the battery pack from being
overcharged.)
Charging the Battery Pack
23
• The Stylistic 3500 battery pack uses Lithium ion battery cells which have no
“memory effect.” You do not need to discharge the battery pack before you begin
charging.
Removing and Installing the Battery Pack
2
The battery pack can be removed from the pen tablet and swapped with a charged
battery pack. The battery pack can then be charged in an external charger if one is
available. To remove the battery pack from the pen tablet:
1. Choose one of the following:
• If a charged battery pack is available, you can suspend system operation. A
built-in “bridge” battery will maintain the system in Suspend-to-RAM mode
for about 5 minutes while the battery pack is removed; this allows time for
replacement with a charged battery pack.
• If a charged battery pack is not available, save your work and close all
running programs, then shut down the system or Save-to-Disk.
• Plug in an external DC power source.
2. Press and hold the battery release button. (See Figure 2-1.)
3. While holding the button, slide the battery release latch in the direction indicated
in Figure 2-1. The edge of the battery pack lifts away from the surface of the
system.
4. Remove the battery pack from the pen tablet.
If you are using an external battery charger, refer to the instructions provided with
the battery charger.
To install the battery pack:
1. Orient the battery such that the battery connector is positioned over the connector
in the empty battery pack tray. Lay the battery pack into the tray and press it
firmly into the tray until it is seated. When it is properly seated, the battery release
latch should move towards the battery release button.
2. When the battery is firmly seated, press the battery release latch towards the
battery release button until the release button pops up to the level of the system.
Once the battery pack is installed, you can resume system operation or start your
system and use the system normally.

Tips for Conserving Battery Power
2
You can extend the charge life of your battery pack by conserving battery power.
(Your results may vary depending on your application and how the system is
configured.) Here are some suggestions to help you conserve battery power:
• Use an external power source such as the AC adapter to power the system when
possible.
• Suspend system operation if you know that you won’t be using the system for a
while.
• Shut down the system if you won’t be using the system for an extended period of
time.
• Use power management (accessible through the BIOS setup) to help you conserve
power automatically. Contact your reseller before modifying the BIOS.
* Battery life is dependent upon the operating system, power settings, and
applications in use.
Tips for Conserving Battery Power
25
Operation of the Bridge Battery
When installed in the pen tablet, the battery pack provides power to some system
components—even when the system is in the Off state. When the battery pack is
removed, power is supplied to these components by a “bridge” battery that is built
into the pen tablet.
The bridge battery is not designed for long-term operation. To maintain the bridge
battery properly, observe the following measures:
Note:
The system arrives with the bridge battery in a discharged state.
• To prevent draining the bridge battery, always store the pen tablet with a charged
battery pack installed.
• If the bridge battery becomes drained, it takes approximately 11 hours for it to be
fully recharged.
• The bridge battery charges when the AC Adapter is connected and the system is
in On or Off states or Suspend mode. It charges from the battery only when the
system is in the On state.
Modem Connection
Note:
2
• The internal 56 Kbps LAN/modem module installed in the Stylistic 3500 pen
tablet has actual maximum transfer rates of 53 Kbps (receive), 33.6 Kbps (send),
and 14.4 Kbps (fax). Download rates are limited to 53 Kbps in the United States
due to FCC restrictions.
• The LAN portion of the internal LAN/modem module can only be used when the
system is used with the optional mini-dock or port replicator; there is no LAN
port on the system itself.
The Stylistic 3500 pen tablet is designed to accept a standard RJ-11 telephone plug.
Connect the plug to the modem jack located on the top of the pen tablet, to the left of
the IrDA port (reference Figure 1-1). The telephone plug can be installed whether or
not the pen tablet has power applied.
If you need assistance configuring the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet modem or LAN,
contact your local help desk or your reseller.

Care and Maintenance
This chapter gives you pointers on how to care for and maintain your Stylistic 3500
pen tablet.
Protecting the Display Screen
3
The Stylistic 3500 pen tablet is designed to provide you with years of service. Using a
screen protector will help ensure that the screen remains as clear as possible. When
installed, the screen protector becomes a durable, replaceable writing surface that
protects the display screen from abrasion.
To obtain additional screen protectors use Fujitsu part number FMWSP10 (12-pack)
when ordering. Additional information about installation is included with the screen
protectors.
Caution
During normal use of the pen tablet, small particles from the
environment can become embedded in the stylus tip and
scratch the screen. To prevent scratching the screen, ensure
that a screen protector is installed before using your pen
tablet. The warranty does not cover a screen that is scratched
as a result of not using a screen protector.
To install a new screen protector on your pen tablet:
1. If a screen protector is already installed on the display screen, remove it before
installing the new screen protector.
The screen protector is held onto the display screen surface by a thin strip of
adhesive around the edges. A notch in one corner of the screen protector allows
you to slide your fingernail under the screen protector for easy removal.
2. Clean the display by wiping the screen surface gently using a soft cotton cloth
dampened with isopropyl alcohol. Ensure that all residue has been removed from
the screen before applying a new screen protector.
29
Caution
The Stylistic 3500 pen tablet is not waterproof. Do not pour
liquids on the system or wash it with a heavily soaked cloth.
3. Remove the protective coating from the adhesive side of the screen protector first.
4. Apply the screen protector to the display screen surface. When doing so, orient
the screen protector with the adhesive side of the screen protector facing the
display screen and the notched corner of the screen protector toward the lower
left corner of the display screen.
5. Apply pressure to the screen protector with your finger using a continuous
wiping motion along the edges. The adhesive sets completely within 48 hours. To
ensure a good seal between the screen protector and the display, do not lift the
screen protector from the display once it has been applied.
6. Remove the protective plastic cover from the face of the screen protector.
7. Clean any residue left behind by the protective coating from the exposed surface
of the screen protector by wiping gently with a soft cotton cloth dampened with
isopropyl alcohol. Wipe the screen protector with a soft dry cloth to remove any
low-tack adhesive; this will help prevent the stylus tip from squeaking.
The screen protector is now installed.
Storing the Stylistic 3500 Pen Tablet
3
Caution
Do not store your Stylistic 3500 with the screen side down,
otherwise damage to the display may occur.
Store the Stylistic 3500 pen tablet in the Off state with a fully charged battery pack
installed. You can store the pen tablet in the Off state for about 30 days with a fully
charged battery pack installed. After this period, the battery pack should be
recharged or replaced with a charged battery pack.
If you intend to store the pen tablet for a longer period of time, the small battery that
maintains system time may need to be replaced. Replacement of the clock battery
should only be performed by authorized technicians.

Troubleshooting
3
Solutions to some common problems are described in the following sections. If you
are experiencing a problem with your Stylistic 3500 pen tablet that you cannot solve
by taking the actions described, contact your local help desk or your reseller for
further assistance.
System Will Not Resume Operation
3
If the system will not resume operation after system operation has been suspended,
check the following possible causes:
• The battery pack may either be defective, or discharged to the critically low level.
When the battery pack reaches the critically low level, the system is forced into
Suspend-to-RAM mode to avoid a total system power failure. To correct this
problem, either connect an external power supply (such as the AC adapter), or
install a charged battery pack in the pen tablet.
• The system may be at the critical thermal limit. To avoid damage to heat-sensitive
components, the system enters Suspend-to-RAM mode when it gets too hot.
System operation cannot be resumed until the pen tablet cools off to a tolerable
temperature. Move the pen tablet to a cooler location.
Display Screen Is Blank or Difficult to Read
3
If the display screen on your Stylistic 3500 pen tablet appears blank or is unreadable,
confirm that the system is running (the Power icon is displayed continuously on the
Status display), and check the following:
• The system brightness may be set too low, causing the screen to appear too dark.
Use the brightness hotpad to adjust the screen brightness.
• An external monitor may be selected. Tap on the Display Select hotpad to
determine whether the pen tablet display screen is selected.
• The video timeout may have expired. Tap on the display screen to reactivate the
display. Note that this is a normal, power-saving feature.
Cursor Is Not Tracking Stylus
If the cursor on the screen appears to be misaligned with the stylus or is not
accurately tracking the stylus, calibrate the stylus. See “Calibrating the Stylus” in
Chapter 2 for details.
32
Care and Maintenance
3
Infrared Data Transfer Is Not Working
3
If you are experiencing problems transferring data over the system’s infrared
interface, note the following:
• Can the IrDA port on the pen tablet “see” the IrDA port on the other device? A
direct line-of-sight path must exist between the IrDA port on the pen tablet and
the IrDA port on the other device.
• The distance between the two devices must not be more than approximately 3
feet.
• The viewing angle from the IrDA port on the pen tablet must not be more than 15
degrees from a center line between the IrDA port on the pen tablet and the IrDA
port on the other device.
• The device with which you are trying to communicate must be compliant with the
IrDA Standard Revision 1.1 (or 1.0).
Pen Tablet Is Not Responding to the Stylus
3
If your pen tablet is not responding to the stylus, connect an external keyboard to the
system to see if it responds to keyboard commands. If the system doesn’t respond to
the keyboard, the application or system may have crashed, and it may be necessary
to reset the system. If the system responds to the keyboard but not to the stylus,
contact your local help desk or reseller for further assistance.
Audio Volume Too Low
3
If the audio volume on your pen tablet speaker or external headphones is too low,
check the following:
• Ensure that the speaker (or headphone output if using headphones) is enabled. To
do so, tap the Speaker Mute hotpad. The system beeps when the speaker or
headphone output is turned on using the hotpad.
• Ensure that the volume level set with the Volume hotpads is set to an audible
level.
• Ensure that the mute box in the system volume control (accessible from the
system tray) is not set.
• Ensure that any volume control in your audio software is set to an audible level.

Digitizer Technology Notice
Additional Display Information
3
The display for your pen tablet incorporates a breakthrough digitizer technology that
dramatically improves outdoor viewability. Compared to traditional outdoor
displays, the new display excels in providing superior visibility in full sunlight, and a
clear, bright picture indoors, in low light conditions, or at night.
This new technology involves the use of a liquid between the digitizer layers to
minimize light refraction and reduce glare. As a result of this technology, users may
notice the appearance of tiny air bubbles which are caused by changes in pressure
(such as that experienced in an airplane). These tiny bubbles are temporary and do
not affect system performance or usability. The digitizer functions normally when
the air bubbles are present.
The air bubbles are formed when the liquid vaporizes due to pressure change. When
the pen tablet is returned to normal use conditions, the tiny air bubbles are absorbed
back into the liquid after a short amount of time.
If these air bubbles are visually distracting, or if they form a larger bubble, gently rub
the screen with a soft cotton cloth in a circular motion, similar to cleaning the screen
of fingerprint oil.
