7. SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE
SAFETY GUIDELINES
In order to achieve maximum safety while using your Razer Lycosa, we suggest that you
adopt the following guidelines:
1. Should you have trouble operating the device properly and troubleshooting does
not work, unplug the device and contact the Razer hotline or go to
www.razersupport.com for support. Do not attempt to service or fix the device
yourself at any time.
2. Do not take apart the device (doing so will void your warranty) and do not
attempt to operate it under abnormal current loads.
3. Keep the device away from liquid, humidity or moisture. Operate the device only
within the specific temperature range of 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F). Should the
temperature exceed this range, unplug and switch off the device in order to let
the temperature stabilize to an optimal level.
COMFORT
Research has shown that long periods of repetitive motion, improper positioning of
your computer peripherals, incorrect body position, and poor habits may be associated
with physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons, and muscles. Below are some
guidelines to avoid injury and ensure optimum comfort while using your Razer Lycosa.
1. Position your keyboard and monitor directly in front of you with your mouse
next to it. Place your elbows next to your side, not too far away and your
Keyboard within easy reach.
2. Adjust the height of your chair and table so that the keyboard and mouse are at
or below elbow height.
21 | razer™
3. Keep your feet well supported, posture straight and your shoulders relaxed.
4. During gameplay, relax your wrist and keep it straight. If you do the same tasks
with your hands repeatedly, try not to bend, extend or twist your hands for long
periods.
5. Do not rest your wrists on hard surfaces for long periods. Use a wrist rest to
support your wrist while gaming.
6. Customize the keys on your keyboard to suit your style of gaming in order to
minimize repetitive or awkward motions while gaming.
7. Do not sit in the same position all day. Get up, step away from your desk and
do exercises to stretch your arms, shoulders, neck and legs.
8. If you should experience any physical discomfort while using your Keyboard,
such as pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck
or back, please consult a qualified medical doctor immediately.
MAINTENANCE AND USE
The Razer Lycosa requires minimum maintenance to keep it in optimum condition.
Once a month we recommend you unplug the device from the computer and clean it
using a soft cloth or cotton swab with a bit of warm water to prevent dirt buildup. Do
not use soap or harsh cleaning agents.
