SAR
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that
these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices
emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being
used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue),
exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might
occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. The SL6000L has been tested and found to comply with the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) guidelines on radio frequency energy (RF) exposures. The
maximum SAR levels tested for the SL-6000L has been shown to be 0.195 W/kg at
Body.
FCC WARNING
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

Troubleshooting
If you have a problem with your Zaurus, check the following points.
If the problem remains, contact our Support center.
The screen is dark.
I want to know how to turn the back light on.
• Adjust the brightness of the light setting in the Light & Power application (See the
Operation Manual: “Managing power (Light & Power)”).
• Is the back light turned on? When the back light has been turned off due to the
power saving setting of the Light & Power application, press the Back light key to
turn the light on.
The charge light blinks or will not turn on.
• When the battery has been fully charged, charging the battery is unnecessary and
the charge light will turn off. Tap the battery icon to check the battery status.

Disconnect the AC adapter and then connect it again.
• Remove and reinsert the battery. Make sure that the battery replacement switch
is set to the “ ” (see page 8).
• If the error persists, the battery or the unit may have a problem. Contact your local
SHARP dealer for repair.
The Zaurus does not turn on even after recharging.
The charge light does not turn off even though more than standard
charging time has elapsed since the charging began.
• When the battery has not been used for an extended period and has become
overly discharged (including the first use of a new one), the power may not turn
on for several minutes after charging and the charge light may not turn off even
after the standard charging time. In such cases, disconnect the AC adapter and
remove the battery. After approximately 5 seconds, replace the battery and
recharge the battery (see page 90).
• Charge at the specified temperature range: 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F).

passcode, but you will lose all data created and saved, and add-on programs
added to the Zaurus (see page 89).
The AC adapter and unit become hot while using the AC adapter or
during charging.
• This is not a malfunction. The AC adapter and the unit become hot when the AC
adapter is used or during charging.
A rainbow pattern is appearing on the screen.
• A rainbow pattern may appear on the screen when the unit is outdoors on a sunny
day, etc., but this happens because of the interference occurred by the light rays
and is not a malfunction.
Application start up is slow.
• The start up time can be shortened in some applications. Tap and hold an
application icon on the Home screen for a few moments, then check the “Fast load”
on the screen displayed. This will consume more memory (see page 46).
