CARE
Your RadioShack EC-219 24K Electronic Organizer with Web Site Directory is an example of superior design
and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your organizer so you can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the organizer dry. If it gets
wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that
can corrode electronic circuits.
• Use and store the organizer only
in normal temperature environments, and avoid sudden temperature
changes.
Temperature
extremes can shorten the life of
electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic
parts.
• At very low temperatures, the display’s response time might slow
70
65-743.fm Page 71 Wednesday, February 9, 2005 9:17 AM
down or the display might fail
completely. This is only temporary. The organizer works normally again when it returns to
normal temperature.
• Handle the organizer gently and
carefully. Dropping it can damage
the circuit boards and cause it to
work improperly.
• Wipe the organizer with a damp
cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean it.
• If the organizer is exposed to
strong static electrical charges,
the display might become dim or
the organizer might fail to
respond. This rarely happens, but
if it does, reset your organizer
71
65-743.fm Page 72 Wednesday, February 9, 2005 9:17 AM
(see “Resetting the Organizer” on
Page 76).
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and type. Always
remove old or weak batteries.
They can leak chemicals that can
destroy the electronic circuits.
Modifying or tampering with the organizer’s internal components can cause
a malfunction and might invalidate the
warranty. If the organizer is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
REPLACING THE
BATTERIES
Your organizer is powered by two 3volt CR2032 lithium batteries and
72
65-743.fm Page 73 Wednesday, February 9, 2005 9:17 AM
backed up by another CR2032. When
the display dims or stops working
properly, replace the main batteries.
To protect the data stored in your organizer, replace the back-up battery once
a year. We recommend RadioShack
Cat. No. 23-162 for both main and
back-up batteries.
Cautions:
• Never remove all three batteries
inside the battery compartment at
the same time. If you do, you
could lose stored information.
• Be sure to turn off your organizer
when replacing the battery. Otherwise, you could lose the stored
information.
• To protect the data stored in your
organizer, remove the old batter73
65-743.fm Page 74 Wednesday, February 9, 2005 9:17 AM
ies and install the new ones as
quickly as possible.
Follow these steps to replace the main
batteries or the back-up battery.
74
1. Press ON/OFF to turn off the organizer.
2. Use a Phillips screwdriver to
remove the screw on the battery
compartment cover, then slide the
cover off in the direction of the
arrow on the cover.
3. Use the end of a screwdriver or
other object to pry out the battery
or batteries you are replacing,
74
65-743.fm Page 75 Wednesday, February 9, 2005 9:17 AM
then install the new one(s) with
the positive (+) side(s) facing up.
Warning:
• Always dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly.
• Never burn batteries.
• Keep batteries out of reach of
children. Swallowing a battery
could be fatal.
Caution: Be sure to keep the two
main batteries in the battery compartment while replacing the
back-up battery.
4. Replace the cover, then reinsert
and tighten the screw.
