Caring For The netpad
1.4 Caring For The netpad
Screen
When used with the approved stylus, the netpad screen is very resistant to wear and
impact and should last for a considerable time. Use of any object, other than the
approved stylus, may result in damage to the netpad screen.
To maintain the life of the netpad screen, keep the screen clean. To clean the screen:
switch off the netpad and use a soft, clean, dry cloth to gently wipe the screen. (If the
netpad is set to turn on automatically when the screen is tapped, you should turn this
preference off before cleaning the screen.)
Warning:
Under no circumstances use chemical solvents to clean the screen.
Charging
To avoid damage to the netpad or the netpad battery packs, use only Psion Teklogix
approved chargers and docking stations (see Chapter 8: “netpad Accessories”).
Backup Battery
The netpad has a rechargeable backup battery designed to retain data while the main
battery pack is charging or changed over.
The backup battery is trickle charged from the main battery pack and has a limited
lifespan. To maximize the life of the backup battery, avoid excessive discharging and
recharging of the backup battery by keeping the netpad battery pack fully charged.
Important:
If both the main battery pack and the backup battery are allowed
to fully discharge, you will lose all your information on the internal disk. However, some of your data can be protected from loss
using the Flash folder. Please refer to page 87 for details.
The backup battery is not user replaceable. If the backup battery requires replacement the netpad must be returned to a Psion Teklogix approved service centre.

Power Management
2.3 Power Management
The netpad is powered by a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery pack, which under
optimal operating conditions will provide power for a full shift (for details, see “Battery Life Of The netpad Variants” on page 171). The netpad can be powered from
AC when used in the docking station (see page 43). When the netpad is powered
from the docking station, it will also charge the battery pack.
Note:
How long your batteries last will depend upon how you use your netpad.
The netpad will use considerably more battery power when you have the
brightness turned up, are using files stored on a multimedia card, or are
using Infrared.
You can take steps to help prolong your battery’s life:
• Turn the screen brightness down.
• Set the Power Saving Schemes timeouts to the shortest possible length.
Keep in mind that the least amount of power is consumed during the
Suspend state (see page 22).
• Use files on the internal disk instead of an MMC, as the netpad requires
more power to write to the multimedia card.
• Turn Flight Mode ON to conserve power when radio communications or
the PCMCIA card are not needed (see “Flight Mode Settings” on
page 24).
2.3.1 Battery Care
2.3.1.1
Fitting The Battery
Before you can use the netpad you must fit the battery—slide it into place until it

Battery Life
When your netpad is switched off, it is on “Suspend” and will continue to use a
small amount of battery power. If you are going to leave your netpad switched off
for a long period of time, you are advised to back up your data beforehand because
the batteries will eventually run out. For details on battery usage and life, please
refer to “Battery Life Of The netpad Variants” on page 171. See page 14 for steps to
take to prolong battery life.
2.3.1.5
Internal Backup Battery
The netpad has a rechargeable backup battery designed to retain data while the main
battery pack is being changed over. The backup battery is trickle charged from the
main battery pack and has a limited life span. To maximize the life of the backup
battery, avoid excessive discharging and recharging of the backup battery by
keeping the netpad battery pack fully charged.
The backup battery is not user-replaceable. If the backup battery requires replacement, the netpad must be returned to a Psion Teklogix approved service centre.
Important:
If both the main battery pack and the backup battery are allowed
to fully discharge, you will lose all your information on the internal disk. However, some of your data can be protected from loss
using the Flash folder. Please refer to page 87 for details.
2.3.2 Power Properties
Power Properties for the battery can be accessed either through the Power icon in
the Control Panel (for the Control Panel screen, see Figure 2.25 on page 31), or by
double-clicking the system status power icon in the taskbar (this icon changes
depending on power status, as described in Table 2.8 on page 17). The Power Properties menu tabs allow you to access the Main and Internal Battery status screens,
power saving Schemes, Battery Settings, and the Device Status screen.
Note:

Power Properties
Note:
The Power Properties Schemes settings are cumulative—that is, to determine when the netpad enters ‘Suspend’ state, the unit waits for the ‘Dim’
state to elapse, followed by the ‘Stand-By’ state and then, once the ‘Suspend’ state time has elapsed, ‘Suspend’ state is activated.
When setting the Dim, Stand-By, and Suspend states, keep the following in mind.
Because the netpad ‘wakes up’ from the Dim and Stand-By states almost
instantaneously following any user input (button press, screen tap), the timeouts you
set will not slow user activity. The sum of the Dim, Stand-By, and Suspend timeouts
should be selected carefully since the netpad will go to sleep (appear off) when this
time has elapsed, saving battery power. The length of the timeouts should be kept to
a minimum to help conserve battery life. The least amount of power is consumed
during the Suspend state.
Setting any of these timeouts to Never does not affect the other timeout options, but
will adversely affect the battery run time. If all three timeouts are set to Never, the
netpad will remain on.
To further reduce power consumption, carefully consider the duration of time that
the display backlight is ON or turned up (see “Backlight Properties” on page 30).
The following are the default values for the power schemes options:

Inactivity Timer Based On Last
This parameter allows you to choose what type of event is monitored by Power
Management. If you select User Event, the Inactivity Timer for switching into
Stand-By or Suspend is started from the last time you press a Navigation button, a
function key, or use the touchscreen.
“System Events” include activity on the serial port, an active radio session, IrDA
activity, or an active application. If you select User/System Event, then the Inactivity Timer starts from the last time a User Event occurred or the last time System
activity occurred. For example, in this mode an active radio would prevent the
netpad from going into Stand-By or Suspend until after that radio session has ended.
This parameter has no impact on the Switch to Dim Inactivity Timer.
Figure 2.13 Power Schemes: Inactivity Timer based on last
Switch To Dim
During Dim state (see Figure 2.14 on page 21), the backlight brightness is turned
down after the specified time has elapsed if the netpad does not receive any user
input, including activities such as a screen tap, a scan, and so on—any user-initiated
activity. When the netpad enters the Dim state, it begins to monitor the time specified in the Switch to Stand-By menu.
Press any navigation button or tap the screen the bring the netpad out of Dim state.

Switch to Suspend
Once the time specified in the Dim and the Stand-By states have elapsed, the netpad
begins to count down the time specified in the Switch to Suspend option. When the
time in the Suspend option elapses, the unit enters Suspend state.
In Suspend state, the netpad CPU suspends all activity, turns off the display, and
goes into a low power state. The state of the device (RAM contents) is preserved.
Select Suspend from the Start Menu or hold down the power button for 4 seconds to
put the netpad into Suspend state. Press the power button to wake up the unit. You
can also enable a screen tap to wake the unit from Suspend by checking that option

Chapter 3: Docking Station And Serial Port
Using The Docking Station
3.1 Using The Docking Station
The netpad docking station provides a permanently connected “drop-in” holder for
the netpad, supplying power for device operation, battery charging, and communications. The power jack is on the front and the serial communication sockets are situated at the right of the docking station. The connector to the netpad faces upwards
from the middle of the station. This connector mates with the connector on the
underside of the netpad to provide power.
For serial port pinouts, please see “Serial Pinouts And Cables” on page 45. For
details on a vehicle-mount for the docking station, please refer to “The In-vehicle
Docking Station” on page 162.
Place the netpad in the docking station and it will begin charging.

Note:
Pins 6 and 10 can carry power to peripherals, but are only powered on
newer netpad models. RS-232 ports that can carry power are standard on
all netpad models, and can be identified by their orange plastic casing.
The powered serial port allows you to connect to various peripherals
such as an RFID reader, Bluetooth module, or a tethered imager.
The equivalent pins on the docking station have no power.
The current standard null modem cable for netpad is P/N A2203 0004 0001. It has a
grey sleeve, with the part number printed on the cable.
In both directions, DTR at one end is connected to both DCD and DSR at the other.
To assist in creating cables to interface with other devices, the current serial cables
contain a wire to each pin of the netpad, running the full length of the cable. The
wires to pins 4 and 9 are only joined in the 9-way plug—they will be separate data
lines if the 9-way pin is cut off.
Note:

Chapter 4: Configuring The netpad
Things To Do First
4.1 Things To Do First
This section describes what you may need to do to set up your netpad:
•
Customize the screen rotation of the netpad.
•
Enter owner information in the Owner Properties menu, so that your netpad
can be returned if you lose it.
•
Set a password for your machine, so that other people cannot access
your information.
•
Set the current time and date.
4.1.1 Screen Rotation
Screen rotation on the netpad is accessed from the Rotate icon
found on the
Windows taskbar. To rotate the screen, click on the Rotate icon. It will rotate the
screen in 90° increments.
Rotation is not fully supported by some programs. For instance, Windows Explorer
should be closed and re-opened after rotation, otherwise the scroll bars will not
redraw correctly.
In auto-hide mode, the taskbar may not be properly displayed after rotation. Menus
from icons in the taskbar should not be activated before the screen is rotated. Menus
should be closed before rotation.
Warning:
Some applications do not support screen rotation and rotating the
screen may cause some programs to become difficult to use.
Some programs, such as Control Panel, may not support rotation
at all.

Things To Do Next
4.2 Things To Do Next
This section gives a brief overview of what else you may want to do when you first
use your netpad.
4.2.1 Setting Up ActiveSync
ActiveSync allows you to connect the netpad to a PC serially, or through Infrared or
radio communication. File transfers, file synchronization and sending e-mail can all
be done via ActiveSync.
ActiveSync must be connected serially at least once before other connection types
are possible. To use ActiveSync with the netpad:
•
The most recent version of ActiveSync should be installed on your PC
(check the Microsoft website for the latest software).
•
Attach the netpad ActiveSync serial cable to the communications port on
your computer (usually COM1).
•
Attach the other end of the serial cable to the netpad port labelled RS-232.
•
On the netpad, go into the Control Panel and open PC Connection. Verify
that the checkbox is checked and that the unit will connect using Serial
Port 3.
•
On the PC, configure the Connection Settings in ActiveSync to use the
communications port to which you have attached the serial cable. The
ActiveSync icon in the taskbar should be green and the arrows should be
rotating, indicating the PC is trying to establish a connection.
•
On the netpad, click on the Start button, then Programs, then ActiveSync,
and select direct from the ActiveSync menu. This should bring up a dialogue box indicating that the netpad is attempting to connect.
•

Double Click
Click Time (msec)
This parameter controls the maximum gap time (in milliseconds) for a double-click.
If the time between the first and second clicks of the scanner trigger is within this
time, it is considered a double-click. The allowable range is 0 to 1000. A value of
zero disables this feature. The default value is 250.
To execute a double-click, first fire the scanner's laser by pressing the scanner
button, but do NOT attempt to decode a bar code immediately. Next, press the
button to trigger the laser once while the laser is still firing, then attempt to decode a
bar code. If successful, you will see the double-click data following the bar code.
Note:
If you are having difficulty with this feature, adjust the value in the LaserOn Time parameter (page 63).
A double-click produces different results depending on whether or not a value is
assigned in the Click Data parameter (below). When a value is not assigned for the
Click Data, double-clicking initiates a normal scan sweep. If a value is assigned for
the Click Data parameter, double-clicking the scanner trigger inserts the Click Data
value after the bar code.
Note:
I you want to insert the click data without the bar code, execute the doubleclick procedure without scanning the bar code.
Click Data
This parameter determines which character is sent following a double-click. Enter
the ASCII value of the character desired from 0 to 255 by clicking on the on-screen
keyboard keys (both upper and lower case). The default character is 00 and is input
with the <Esc> key.

FIELD SIZE / CHARS
Field Size
The field size is the length of the field after the first character is stripped and the
prefix and suffix characters are added. If the field size is non-zero, only bar codes of
that length are passed through.
Prefix Char
This character, if non-zero, is added before a successfully decoded bar code. Enter
the desired character, or enter a value of 00 (zero) if no prefix is to be added. The
default character is 00 and is input with the <Esc> key. To append a control character (in the range of 0 to 32 ASCII) as a prefix, press the <Ctrl> key and the corresponding letter (a=0, b=1, c=2, etc.).

Bar Codes
Suffix Char
This character, if non-zero, is added after a successfully decoded bar code. Enter the
desired character, or enter a value of 00 (zero) if no prefix is to be added. The default
character is 00 and is input with the <Esc> key. To append a control character (in the
range of 0 to 32 ASCII) as a prefix, press the <Ctrl> key and the corresponding
letter (a=0, b=1, c=2, etc.).
Strip Leading
This parameter determines the number of characters that will be removed from the
beginning of the bar code before the prefix character is added.
Note:
1.The appended character is treated as any other keyboard character. For
example, if <Tab> is pressed, the usual action for that key is performed.
Strip Trailing
The value entered in this parameter determines the number of characters that will be
removed from the end of the bar code before the suffix character is added.

Bar Codes
C39 Full ASCII
If this parameter is ON, the ASCII character set assigns a code of letters, punctuation marks, numerals, and most control keystrokes to the keyboard. The bar code
special characters $ + % / are used as escape characters. C39 Full ASCII interprets
the combination of an escape character and the following Code 39 character as an
equivalent ASCII character.
Note:
C39 Full ASCII and Trioptic C39 (see above) should not be enabled
simultaneously. Turn this parameter OFF if Trioptic C39 is ON.
C39 Check Digit Verify
If this parameter is enabled, the scanner checks the integrity of all Code 39 symbols
to verify that the data includes a module 43 check digit. Only Code 39 symbols that
contain a module 43 check digit are decoded when this feature is ON.
Xmit C39 Check Digit
If this parameter is ON, the check digit is included with the decoded bar code data.
Set Lengths
The length of a code refers to the number of characters (human readable characters)

Decode Supplementals
Supplementals are additionally appended characters (2 or 5) according to specific
code format conventions (e.g. UPC A+2, UPC E+2, EAN 8+2). Three options are
available:
Ignore
If the scanner comes across a UPC/EAN plus supplemental symbol, the
UPC/EAN is decoded, while the supplemental characters are ignored.
Decode
If the scanner comes across a UPC/EAN plus supplemental symbol, UPC/EAN
symbols without supplemental characters are not decoded.
Auto-discriminate
This parameter enables the scanner to differentiate and decode UPC/EAN
symbols with or without supplementals. This option should be used in conjunction with Supplemental Redundancy, below.
Note:
To minimize possible invalid data transmissions, select either the Ignore or
Decode option when possible.
Supplemental Redundancy
With Auto-discriminate enabled, this parameter limits the number of times a symbol
without supplementals will be decoded before transmission. The options are:
5 times, 7 times, 10 times, or 15 times. Five or above is recommended when
scanning a mixture of bar codes with and without supplementals.
UPC/EAN Coupon Code
If this parameter is ON, the scanner can decode UPC-A, UPC-A with 2 supplemental characters, UPC-A with 5 supplemental characters, and UPC-A/EAN 128 bar
codes. The Auto-discriminate option under Decode Supplementals must be enabled.
UPC/EAN Security Level
There are four Levels of decode security for UPC/EAN bar codes: 0 to 3. Increasing
levels of security are provided for decreasing levels of bar code quality. There is an
inverse relationship between security and scanner aggressiveness, therefore only
choose the level of security needed for the application.

Bar Codes
Level: 0
This is the default setting. The scanner operates in its most aggressive state
while providing sufficient security in decoding “in-spec” UPC/EAN bar codes.
Level: 1
As bar code quality diminishes, certain characters become prone to mis-decodes
before others (i.e. 1, 2, 7, 8). Where the mis-decodes of poorly printed bar codes
are limited to these characters, select this security level.
Level: 2
Where the mis-decodes of poorly printed bar codes are not limited to characters
1, 2, 7, 8, select this security level.
Level: 3
When security Level: 2 has not been successful with mis-decodes, select security Level: 3. This security level is an extreme measure against mis-decoding
bar codes that are severely out of specification. Level: 3 severely impairs the
scanner’s decoding ability, so improve bar code quality whenever possible.

Input
This string entry parameter is compared with the decoded bar code reading. If there
is a match, the Output string is translated into the decoded bar code. The first character of the Input string specifies where the rest of the string can occur within the
decoded bar code reading. The possible values for this character include:
b
e
x
a
Compare with the beginning of decoded bar code.
Compare with the end of decoded bar code.
Compare with the entire decoded bar code.
Compare anywhere within the decoded bar code (default).
If the first character is none of ‘b’, ‘e’, ‘x’ or ‘a’, the character is assumed to be an
‘a’ and is stripped from the rest of the “In” entry.
Note:
Translation of the decoded bar code occurs after all other modifications
to the bar code have been done (e.g., prefix char, suffix char, strip, etc.).
Output
If there is a match between the decoded bar code and the corresponding Input string,
the decoded bar code will be translated into the Output string. This string entry
parameter can be null, or it may contain any combination of standard and special
characters (e.g., function keys, <ENTER>, etc.).

Introduction
5.1 Introduction
Windows Explorer is the netpad’s file manager. It is accessible by double-clicking
on the My Computer icon.
Note:
When you turn the netpad on from a suspend, the programs that were previously open will still be open and will display on the screen. When you
turn on the netpad from a cold or warm boot, you will see the Desktop.
5.2 Moving Around
To move the highlight between the files and folders on the screen:
click on the names, or use the arrow keys. If there are more files in the folder
than can be displayed on screen, scroll the screen using the scroll bar.
To view the files on a multimedia card:
change the current folder by opening the My Computer folder and selecting the
Storage Card icon.
5.3 Opening Files, Folders And Programs
To open a file or folder in Windows Explorer:
double-click, or highlight it and press Enter. In most cases, if a program is
already running, opening a file associated with that program will open another
instance of that program.
To run a program:
Open the Start Menu by clicking on the Start button in the bottom left corner of
the screen. Click on Programs to display all the programs available. Click on
the name of the program you wish to run.

How can I see which programs are open?
The taskbar across the bottom of the screen displays buttons for programs that are
open. To switch between programs, click on the button in the taskbar.
5.4 Closing Programs/Files
To close the current folder:
click on the X icon at the top left corner of the screen. When you close all open
folders, you will see the Desktop.
To close a file:
use the Close command on the File menu, in the program in which the file is
open.You will be prompted to save your changes.
You can also close files or programs by selecting the list of open files and programs
by using the X button in the upper right corner of any window.
5.5 Creating New Folders
You can keep documents in the My Documents folder under My Computer. It is possible to create a number of folders inside My Documents, in which to store all your
files to prevent the My Documents screen from becoming too full.
To create a new folder:
1. Move to the folder in which you wish to create the new folder.
2. Select the New folder command from the File menu, and type in the
folder name. You can also right-click on the blank space in a folder and
select New folder from the context menu.
You cannot use the following characters in a folder name: < > : / \ * ?
If you use netpad files with a PC, you may wish to create folders that match equivalent folders on your PC. This will make transferring files between the netpad and
PC easier.

Creating New Files
5.5.1 Creating New Files
You can create files from within programs. As a general rule, open the program in which
you want to create the file, and select New from the File menu. A file name is suggested.
If you do not wish to use this, type a name of your own before pressing the OK button.
What names can I use for my files & folders?
You can use most characters in file and folder names including spaces, for example,
“1997 Purchase Orders and Invoices”. The only characters which cannot be used in
a file or folder name are: / < > : \ * ?
You may encounter difficulties if you use very long file names for files stored in
folders with long names, which are nested within other folders with long names, and
so on. If you do exceed the maximum allowed length, rename a folder or file to a
shorter name.
5.6 Start Menu - Documents
A quick way to find a file that has been recently used is to look in the Documents
menu on the Start menu. The Documents menu will list up to ten of the most recent
files opened.
5.7 Changing File Attributes
You can prevent a file from being accidentally changed by making it a “read-only”
file. To do this, right-click on the file and select Properties from the context menu.
Then check the Read-only box.
Files that have been created on a PC and then transferred to the netpad will also be
“read-only” files.
Note:
If you transfer a “read-only” file to another machine, it can be viewed,
and the “read-only” attribute can be removed.

around the file/folder icon(s).
3. Go to the folder into which the highlighted items are to be moved.
4. Select the Paste command from the Edit menu.
Notes: Moving a folder also moves all the files within that folder.
To copy a file or folder, or multiple files/folders to a different folder:
follow the earlier instructions, but select the Copy as opposed to the Cut
command from the Edit menu.
To make a copy of a file or folder within the same folder:
highlight it and select the Copy command followed by the Paste command. A
new file is automatically created for you using the following naming convention
(with Wordpad as the example): Copy of Doc1, etc. You can rename the file or
folder later if you wish.
To rename a single file or folder:
right-click, select Rename from the context menu, and then type in a new name.
To remove one or more files or folders:
first highlight them and then either press the Delete key, or select the Delete

The Flash Folder
5.9 The Flash Folder
The Flash folder, accessed from the My Computer icon on the desktop, can be used
to store data securely in case of power loss. It can also be used as the backup location for the Total Recall application (see “Profile Location” on page 90).
Data stored in this directory will still exist even if the main battery and backup
battery are discharged. Data will also remain in this directory after a “soft” or “hard”
reset. The size of storage is limited—to see the amount of space available in this
folder, right-click on the Flash icon in My Computer, and select Properties in the
dropdown menu.
Important:
Before performing an operating system upgrade, always back up
any data stored in Flash. If the new O/S image requires more
space than that allocated for the previous version, space in the
user’s Flash folder may be re-allocated, and all stored data would
be deleted.
If there are some files you don’t want installed automatically with a cold boot but
want to keep secure, either back those up to your PC or place in another folder
within the Flash folder. The Flash folder has device name ‘DSK1:’ in the Storage
Manager (see page 94).

Checking System Memory Use
5.11 Checking System Memory Use
To display the amount of system memory remaining:
double-click the System icon in the Control Panel and select the Memory tab.
You can see the amount of free memory in the slider bar.
5.11.1 What Happens When System Memory Is Full?
When the system memory is nearly full, you will see warning dialogues when
running programs to indicate that the netpad’s memory is almost full, and there is
not enough memory to perform some tasks. Many actions need just a little free
memory in order to work—displaying dialogues, menus, etc. These can fail with a
message like ‘Memory full’. The netpad will not allow you to use all of the available
memory; it will always set aside enough memory for you to close a program or save
an open file to a multimedia card.
Files saved on the internal flash memory, files saved on memory cards, and ‘open’
programs do not use system memory.
Applications running from RAM, or files stored outside the Flash folder or memory
cards, do use system memory. To free memory, close these files, delete any
unwanted files, or move files to a multimedia card or your PC.
5.11.2 Additional Memory And Programs
You can insert multimedia cards into the MMC slot on the right-hand side of the
netpad. You might use them as additional memory for storing files, or to add more
programs to the netpad. For details, please refer to “Multimedia Cards” on page 25.
If a multimedia card contains additional programs:
their icons will be available in the Storage Card folder.

Chapter 6: Connecting netpad To A PC
Introduction
6.1 Introduction
This chapter explains how to use ActiveSync to copy files between a PC and netpad,
and how to synchronize items such as Calender, Contacts, Inbox and Tasks files. It
assumes some basic knowledge of Windows PC operating systems.
These instructions assume that you have established a link between your PC and
netpad. See “Setting Up ActiveSync” on page 53 for details on communication
links.
•
Check that a link exists between the netpad and the PC by looking in the
PC’s taskbar in the bottom right-hand corner of your desktop. There should
be a green circle in the taskbar if you have successfully linked, as shown.
If this circle is grey there is no connection.
•
Make sure that your link cable is connected.
•
On the netpad, check the taskbar for the blue monitor icon. If there is no
icon, your unit is not connected.
6.2 Using ActiveSync
ActiveSync allows Windows Explorer to see files on your netpad, using the Explore
icon in the ActiveSync window. You can copy your netpad files in most of the ways
you can copy any normal PC file, including copying or moving files to your PC in
order to print them. The methods outlined in this chapter are representative of ways
that you might use Explorer, but are not the only possibilities.
Note:
You can change the look of Explorer using options in the View menu;
therefore, the appearance of your own screen may vary slightly from
those shown.

Working With Your Files
6.4 Working With Your Files
6.4.1 Looking At Files On Your netpad
Using Windows Explorer, you can open, move, copy and delete files stored on your
netpad from your PC.
•
On the PC, double-click on the Mobile Device
icon in your PC’s My Computer folder. The
Mobile Device window opens, displaying icons
for the files and folders in the My Computer folder.
•
Double-click on the netpad’s My Computer
folder under Mobile Device, to display the files
and folders on the drive. A folder for the multimedia card will be present as the Storage Card folder.
6.4.2 Copying A File Using Drag And Drop
1. Go to the folder you want to copy files from. The left-hand pane of the
Explorer window shows a list of all the disk drives on your PC, along
with netpad and network drives (if any). You can expand a branch by
clicking on the
symbol next to it, or close the branch by clicking
on the
symbol. The right-hand side of Explorer shows the contents
of the folder selected on the left.
2. Use the scroll bar on the right of the left-hand Explorer pane until you
can see the drive that contains the folder that you want to copy the file
from. Left-click and hold to drag the file or folder to copy.
3. Drag the file or folder up the folder list in the left pane, until you can
see the folder that you wish to copy the file into. If the folder you want
to copy to is not visible because its branch has not been expanded,
hover the dragged file over the folder for a second and it should expand.
This step can be repeated until the folder you want is visible.
4. Drop the file onto the folder name in the left pane, or into the right pane
if the folder is open, by releasing the left mouse button.
If necessary, the file is converted into the correct PC format. The file can be used in
the same way as any other file on your PC.

Chapter 6: Connecting netpad To A PC
Copying A File Using Copy And Paste
6.4.3 Copying A File Using Copy And Paste
Using Windows Explorer, you can copy files between your PC and netpad in the
same way you would copy files to a floppy disk, or another PC on a network.
ActiveSync can convert files as they are copied so that you can open them on the
other computer immediately.
Within Windows, clicking the right mouse button often displays a context-sensitive
(pop-up) menu – a range of commands relevant to the object that you right-click on.
In Explorer, you can use these menus to copy files between folders, regardless of
whether they are on the PC or the netpad.
1. Open Windows Explorer.
2. Navigate to, and expand, the Mobile Device branch of the folder list.
Find the folder that contains the file you wish to copy to the PC and
click on it so that its contents are shown in the right-hand pane of the
Explorer window.
3. Right-click on the file and select Copy from the pop-up menu that appears.
4. Navigate to the folder you want to copy this file to, and select it, so that
its contents (if any) appear in the right-hand pane of the Explorer
window. Right-click in the right-hand pane of the Explorer window,
and select Paste from the pop-up menu.
You can use Windows Explorer to manage files and folders stored on your netpad in
the same way as you can on your PC’s drives.
Warning:
100
When you delete a file on your netpad from your PC, it is permanently removed from the netpad’s drive. The file cannot be retrieved
from the Windows Recycle Bin, which only stores files deleted from
your PC’s drives.

Chapter 6: Connecting netpad To A PC
Opening netpad Files From Your PC
6.4.4 Opening netpad Files From Your PC
You can open a file on your netpad using a PC application without first having to
copy it to your PC drive. You can edit the file on your PC and then save it back to
your netpad when you have finished. To open a file from Windows Explorer,
double-click on the file icon or press Enter.
When you save the file within the PC application, ActiveSync saves the edited file
back to your netpad.
6.5 Backing Up Your netpad With ActiveSync
6.5.1 Performing Your First Backup
You can use ActiveSync to back up all the files stored on your netpad to your PC.
Keeping backups of your netpad files on your PC means that you have a separate
copy of all your work that can be restored to your netpad. For example, you can
restore backed up files to your netpad if you accidentally delete a file, wish to revert
back to an older version of a file, or need to restore files if you forget to change
the batteries.
To make a backup:
1. Open ActiveSync on the PC by double-clicking on the green circle in
the taskbar.
2. Click on the Tools menu, then on Backup/Restore.
3. Click Back Up Now to start backing up the files on your netpad.
ActiveSync displays a progress window showing how long the backup
will take and will inform you when it has completed.
6.5.2 Performing Regular Backups
You can set ActiveSync to automatically backup when the device connects, so you
do not need to back up your netpad manually.

Chapter 6: Connecting netpad To A PC
Synchronizing Your netpad
6.6 Synchronizing Your netpad
6.6.1 What Is Synchronization?
You can use synchronization to manage information that you wish to keep up to date
on both your PC and netpad, such as appointments or address book entries. When
you synchronize, ActiveSync checks the information in your PC program with the
matching program on your netpad, and then updates the files on both your PC and
netpad to include the new information. To synchronize, you must set up a partnership between the netpad and the PC.
Some examples of synchronization are:
•
You add a new appointment in your netpad schedule; the date, time and
notes for the entry will be copied to your PC scheduler and notify you at the
appropriate time.
•
You change a phone number in your PC address book; it will be amended in
your netpad’s address book.
•
You enter overlapping appointments in your PC and netpad schedules;
ActiveSync will warn you of the conflict.
6.6.2 Synchronizing Your netpad
This section details the set-up and day-to-day use of ActiveSync to synchronize
files, e-mail, schedules, and so on, on the PC. The instructions assume some familiarity with the use of Windows, and that you are using ActiveSync (supplied with
netpad). You must also have a local installation of the e-mail and schedule programs
to synchronize.
Partnerships are only necessary for synchronization, not to simply copy files from
the PC to the netpad. Before creating your partnership, note which types of information you want to synchronize. You can synchronize the Calendar, Channels, Contacts, Files, Inbox, Pocket Access and Tasks. ActiveSync will tell you to which
desktop applications each of these relates.
102

Using An Existing Partnership
6.6.3 Using An Existing Partnership
Once you have set up the partnership as above, you can use it whenever you wish.
When the netpad and the PC are connected afterward, it will automatically use the
current partnership.
To force synchronization, make sure the netpad and the PC are already connected.
Press the Sync button in the PC’s ActiveSync window. To stop synchronization,
click on the Stop button.
Note:
Hard resetting the netpad will delete the partnership on the netpad. You
may delete and re-create the partnership on the PC, or create another
partnership with a new name. Refer to ActiveSync’s online help for more
details on this operation.

2. When you’ve set the parameters, press OK to save the changes.
SSID
The SSID (Service Set Identifier) is a string of characters, to a maximum of 32, that
the netpad uses to determine with which access points it can communicate. The
netpad will only communicate with access points configured with the same SSID. If
a value is not assigned for this parameter, the netpad will communicate with any
available access point that is configured to allow broadcast SSIDs.
Client Name
The Client Name is a string of characters, to a maximum of 16, that corresponds
with the access point’s list of connected devices. This logical name makes it easy to
determine the devices connected without the need to memorize every MAC address.
Keep in mind that each terminal on the network must have a unique client name.

Infrastructure Mode
When this parameter is set to Yes, the netpad operates in Infrastructure mode,
passing data through an access point—terminals cannot communicate directly with
other terminals in the network. If this parameter is set to No, the netpad operates in
“ad hoc” or “peer-to-peer” mode, passing data directly to other terminals—an access
point is not required. The default setting is Yes.
Power Save Mode
The value assigned to this parameter determines the operating method the netpad
uses to conserve power. The default setting is Fast PSP.
CAM (Constantly Awake Mode) keeps the Cisco radio (TRX7441) powered up
continuously ensuring quicker message response. This mode is generally recommended for desktop computers and devices using AC power.
Fast PSP (Fast Power Save Protocol), enables the netpad radio to switch between
Max PSP mode and CAM, depending on network traffic. The netpad radio switches
to CAM when retrieving a large number of packets and then switches to Max PSP
once the packets have been received. This mode is recommended where power consumption is a concern but greater throughput than that allowed by Max PSP is
required. This is the default setting.
Max PSP (Maximum Power Save Protocol) powers the Cisco radio on and off
based on a time algorithm. Packets are retrieved only when the radio is scheduled to
be ‘on’. When the time expires, the radio turns off for the required time and then
turns back on again to retrieve more data. This mode is recommended where power
consumption is a significant concern.
Network Security Type
This parameter allows you to specify the type of 802.1X authentication that your
netpad will use. The default setting is None.
None disables 802.1X authentication.
LEAP enables LEAP authentication. LEAP is an authentication protocol that is proprietary to Cisco and is designed to operate with Cisco access points. It is encapsulated in an EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) packet used in conjunction
with the 802.1X standard to authenticate users at the MAC layer. The 802.1X stan-

Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Cisco 802.11b DS SS PC Card Radio
dard does not specify EAP types. LEAP also provides the netpad with a new WEP
key. Each terminal has a unique WEP key to increase the security of the 802.11b
radio link.
Important:
Note:
This parameter must be enabled before setting a LEAP User Name,
User Password, and User Domain (see page 119).
Host Based EAP is not supported.
WEP (Wired-Equivalent Privacy)
This parameter specifies the type of wired equivalent privacy (WEP) that your client
adaptor will use. The default setting is No WEP.
No WEP disables WEP for your client adaptor. This is the default value.
Static WEP Keys enables static WEP for your client adaptor after you enter a valid
WEP key.
Dynamic WEP Keys enables WEP keys to be derived automatically during EAP
authentication. If you set the Network Security Type (see page 117) to LEAP,
Dynamic WEP Keys is set automatically and the RADIUS server assigns a
dynamic, session-based WEP key to the adaptor. If you set the Network Security
Type to Host Based EAP, you must set the WEP parameter to Dynamic WEP Keys.
Authentication Type
The value assigned for this parameter determines how the netpad authenticates the
access point. The default setting is Open.
Open authentication allows the netpad, regardless of WEP settings, to associate
with an access point.
Note:
If LEAP is enabled on the netpad, Open Authentication is the only available option.
Shared Key authentication allows the netpad to associate only with access points
that have the same WEP key. The access point sends a known unencrypted “challenge packet” to the netpad; the netpad encrypts the packet and sends it back to the
access point. The access point attempts to decrypt the encrypted packet and sends an
authentication response packet indicating the success or failure of the decryption
back to the netpad.

Note:
This option is available only if Static WEP Keys is enabled (see “WEP
(Wired-Equivalent Privacy)” on page 118), and LEAP is not enabled (see
“Network Security Type” on page 117).
Important:
Shared Key Authentication is not recommended as it presents a
security risk.
User Name
Important:
BEFORE assigning a User Name, User Password, and User
Domain, the LEAP parameter must be Enabled. To enable this
parameter in the Aironet Client Utility (ACU), review “Network
Security Type” on page 117.
The LEAP User Name, User Password, and User Domain are used by the Cisco PC
card to perform mutual authentication with the RADIUS server through the access
point. The LEAP User Name, User Password, and User Domain are stored in the PC
card’s volatile memory; they are temporary and need to be entered each time power
has been removed from the PC card.
User Password
The LEAP User Name, User Password, and User Domain are used by the Cisco PC
card to perform mutual authentication with the RADIUS server through the access
point. The LEAP User Name, User Password, and User Domain are stored in the PC
card’s volatile memory; they are temporary and need to be entered each time power
has been removed from the PC card.
User Domain
The LEAP User Name, User Password, and User Domain are used by the Cisco PC

Mixed Mode
When this parameter is set to Enabled, the netpad can communicate with Cisco
access points that have encryption set to ‘optional’—that is, whether or not encryption is available, the netpad will be able to communicate with a Cisco access point.
If Mixed Mode is set to Disabled, the netpad can only communicate with Cisco
access points that have full encryption enabled. The default is Disabled.
Note:
For security reasons, it is recommended that WEP-enabled and
WEP-disabled clients not operate in the same cell because broadcast
packets will be sent unencrypted, even to clients running WEP.
World Mode
World Mode is designed for users who travel between countries and want their terminals to associate with access points in different regulatory domains. Setting World
Mode to Enabled allows the netpad to adopt the maximum transmit power level and
the frequency range of the access point to which it is associated, provided that the
access point is also configured for World Mode. The default is Disabled.
Note:
This parameter is only available in Infrastructure Mode.
Note also that when World Mode is enabled, the netpad is limited to the
maximum transmit power level allowed by the country of operation’s regulatory agency.
Data Rates
The value entered in this parameter specifies the data rate to be used for message
transmission. The data rate can be set to one of the following: Auto (uses the 11 Mb
data rate when possible, dropping to lower rates when necessary), 1 Mb Only, 2 Mb
Only, 5.5 Mb Only, or 11 Mb Only. The default is Auto.
Note:
In Infrastructure Mode, the netpad data rate must be set to Auto or must
match the data rate of the access point. If you are using ad hoc Mode, all
the terminals must be set to the same data rate.
Transmit Power
This parameter defines the power level at which your netpad transmits. The value
assigned must not be higher than that allowed by your country’s regulatory agency
(FCC in the U.S., DOC in Canada, ETSI in Europe, MKK in Japan, etc.)

radio range.
If the netpad is running, ACU queries the adaptor and displays the settings
programmed into the adaptor. If the netpad is not running, ACU displays
power level options based on the last known radio type.
When World Mode is enabled (see page 120), the netpad is limited to the
maximum transmit power level allowed by the country of operation’s regulatory agency.
If you are using an older version of a 340 or 350 series PC card, your
power level options may be different from those listed here.
Offline Channel Scan
Enabling this parameter causes the netpad to periodically scan for a better access
point with the same SSID, if the signal strength falls below 50%. The default value
is Enabled.

Bluetooth is a global standard for wireless connectivity for digital devices. The technology is based on a short-range radio link that operates in the ISM band at 2.4 GHz.
When two Bluetooth-equipped devices come within 10 meters’ range of each other,
they can establish a connection. Because Bluetooth utilizes a radio-based link, it
doesn't require a line-of-sight connection in order to communicate.
Note:
The Bluetooth radio card uses an internal antenna.
The following menus provide the configuration settings for the Bluetooth radio
card. For details on setting up a modem through the serial port, please refer to “Connecting The Modem” on page 153.
Important:

Scan
In the Devices menu page, click on the Scan button and wait for the netpad to complete its scan (approximately 20 seconds). When scanning starts, the ‘Scan’ button
will change to ‘Stop’, and if needed you can click on this button to stop the process.
Once scanning is complete, all discovered devices will be displayed in the list box,
with Name, Address, Active status, and PIN information.
If the discovered device has been given a unique Name by its owner, that name is
used to identify it along with its Bluetooth Address. To see the Address of the Bluetooth radio in your netpad, click on the Property tab of the Bluetooth Controls menu
(see “Property Menu Page” on page 136).
Note:
During scanning, addresses are scanned for first, and then the names.
Therefore, for remote devices that are not in good Bluetooth radio coverage, the scanning process may complete without retrieving all the names.
The Active column indicates whether any service is activated for that device. When
a service is activated, the device will show up on the list even when it is not detected
during the scan.
The PIN column indicates whether you have a PIN (password) set for the device.
At this point you can either query for services or set the PIN for each device.
Once you highlight a device in the list box, both the Services and Set PIN buttons

Services
A discovered device may display several service profiles that it can use to communicate, and you will want to activate the type you need. Supported profiles that can be
activated include: DUN (Dial-Up Networking service), Printer (serial service), and
LANPPP (LANAccessUsingPPP service). ASync (ActiveSync) is another available
profile—for connection details, refer to “Connecting Via Bluetooth” on page 55.
To start the service scan, highlight a device (for example, BELKIN_00db7...) in the
Devices menu list, then click on the Services button or double-click on the entry.
Note:
If the remote device is out of reach or turned off, it could take a long time
for the Services dialogue box to come up, and it will appear frozen.
When the device’s service profiles are displayed in the Services list box, highlight
the desired service and right-click (or press the space bar) to access the activation
options, then click on Active, Authenticate, or Encrypt as required.
Once the service is successfully activated, the assigned port (if applicable) will
appear in the Port column of the Services list box. You can choose to use BSP or
COM as the port name (see “Property Menu Page” on page 136). BSP is the latest
Microsoft Bluetooth stack standard, but older applications assume serial ports are
COM. When using COM as the port name, the Bluetooth manager will try to find
and use a free port between COM7 and COM9. When using BSP as the port name,
BSP2 to BSP9 are available for use. The port is available as soon as it is activated.
Notes: netpad will automatically assign COM8 to the Printer profile.
The CH column shows the RFCOMM channel of the service IF the service
is RFCOMM-based. This information is not generally needed except for
debugging purposes.

The Authenticate and Encrypt options can be changed only before activation. To
change those after activation, deactivate the service first, then change the options.
Once a service is activated, all the information regarding the service, including the
RFCOMM channel number, is saved in the registry. (Some remote devices may
change their RFCOMM channel numbers when they reboot, so your saved setting
may not work when the remote device is rebooted. In that case, you must deactivate
the service and reactivate it to detect the current RFCOMM channel.)
Set PIN
PINs can be set for each device by pressing the Set PIN button in the Devices menu,
or you can skip this step and try to connect to the device first (see page 135).

Internet And E-Mail Settings
7.5 Internet And E-Mail Settings
7.5.1 Overview
Before you can use Internet Explorer (the Internet browser) and Inbox (the e-mail
application) on your netpad, you need to set up certain details. This section covers
some general questions that people ask about using e-mail and the Internet, and
provides a glossary of terms. The later sections list the information you will need
to know before you start setting up the netpad, and then provide step-by-step
instructions.
7.5.1.1
Using The Internet On netpad
You can use your netpad to:
•
Access the Internet and view web pages using the Internet Explorer program.
•
View locally stored web pages and graphics files.
•
Download files, e.g. additional programs for your netpad.
7.5.1.2
Using E-mail On netpad
You can use your netpad to send and receive e-mail messages using either one, or
both, of the following methods:
Connecting By Telephone Line To A Remote Mailbox
This is for making a ‘live’ connection to your e-mail mailbox via a telephone line
(without needing a PC). For example, you could access your personal mailbox by
dialing your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or access your work mailbox by dialing
your company's service provider or office mailbox.
What to do next…
If you want to access your work mailbox, you will first need to contact your
network administrator to find out whether you can make a ‘remote’ (dial-up)
connection to your mailbox. See “Types Of E-mail Account” on page 146
to continue.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
145
Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Overview
Connecting A PC To Access Your Mailbox
This is for connecting directly to a PC that can access your mailbox. Using
ActiveSync's ‘Inbox Synchronization’, you can write e-mails on your netpad,
and then connect to your PC to send and receive messages.
How do I do this?
To access your mailbox via a PC, you will first need to install ActiveSync on the
PC and set up a partnership to use ‘Inbox Synchronization’.
7.5.1.3
Types Of E-mail Account
There are a number of different types of e-mail account. See the list below to
find out which types of account you can connect to using the e-mail program
on your netpad.
Personal Dial-up Account
This is most likely a dial-up e-mail account which you’ve signed-up for with an
Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Which ISPs can I use?
You can use most ISPs which use ‘Internet standard’ methods for connecting to
your e-mail account. However, some ISPs (such as America Online) use proprietary methods for connecting, and cannot be accessed by your netpad (i.e. you
must use a PC). Move on to ‘Setting up your netpad’ to continue.
Remote (e.g. Office) E-mail Account
This is most likely an e-mail account at your workplace, e.g. using Microsoft
Exchange or Lotus Notes.
How do I find out if I can use my account?
You will need to find out from your network administrator whether you can
access your e-mail mailbox using this type of account. If you can, move on to
“Setting Up Your netpad” on page 148 to continue.
146
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Overview
Web-based E-mail Account
This is an e-mail account that you must connect to using a web browser, e.g.
HotMail or Yahoo! Mail.
Note:
You can’t connect to this type of account using the e-mail program.
To use web-based e-mail, you must first set up your netpad for Internet
access. You will need to use the Internet Explorer program to access your email provider’s web site.
7.5.1.4
If You Don’t Have An Internet/E-mail Account
You will require an e-mail account before you can access the Internet, and send and
receive e-mail messages on your netpad.
•
To get a personal e-mail account, you must ‘sign-up’ with an Internet
Service Provider (ISP). ISPs usually provide an e-mail account as part of an
Internet access package.
•
Most ISPs will provide software (e.g. a CD-ROM) which will help you set
up Internet access and the e-mail account on a PC.
Important:
7.5.1.5
Some ISPs require that you connect to them using a PC in order
to sign-up. If you can’t do this, contact the ISP to find out if you
can sign-up without using a PC. If you have Internet access, see
www.psion.com/mobile for more details.
Glossary Of Terms
DNS
The Domain Name System (DNS) is an Internet service that translates domain
(or ‘host’) names into IP addresses. Domain names are alphabetic but the Internet is based on numeric IP addresses. Therefore when a domain name is used, a
DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For
example, the domain name www.psionteklogix.com might translate into the IP
address 194.129.243.153.
Hostname (or Domain Name)
A unique identifier in alphabetic characters for a network device.
The hostname corresponds to the device’s numeric IP address. For example,
www.psionteklogix.com could be the same as the IP address 194.129.243.153.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual

Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Setting Up Your netpad
IP address
A computer’s unique Internet address, e.g. 194.129.243.153, used by computers
to communicate with each other.
ISP
Internet Service Providers are companies that provide you with access to the
Internet. An ISP ‘account’ normally includes the facility to send and receive email using a personal e-mail address.
POP3/IMAP4
Internet ‘protocols’ (standards) for receiving e-mail.
SMTP
An Internet protocol used for sending e-mail.
TCP/IP
An Internet protocol used by computers to communicate with each other. See
also “IPv6 Support” on page 151.
7.5.2 Setting Up Your netpad
7.5.2.1
How To Use Internet Explorer/Inbox
To access the Internet, and send and receive e-mail on your netpad you must have
the following:
1. An appropriate e-mail account.
To access the Internet and use e-mail, you will need a standard
e-mail account.
2. A modem.
You will need a modem to connect your netpad to the telephone network. You can use the following types of modem with your netpad:
• Standard external PC modems.
• Internal radio modem (GSM variant), see “GSM/GPRS Radio Configuration” on page 124 for details.
• Infrared-enabled mobile phones with built-in modems.
148
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Setting Up Your netpad
3. A telephone connection.
If you are using a standard external modem, you will need to connect
your modem to a telephone socket. If you are using a mobile phone,
your network operator will need to enable your SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card so that you can make fax and data calls on your
phone. If your phone has been enabled for fax and data calls, you
should have two extra phone numbers. Contact your network operator
if you are unsure whether your phone's SIM card is ‘data-enabled’.
7.5.2.2
Getting Help
If you are having connection problems, you can find information about connecting
using specific service providers, modems or mobile phones on our web site at
www.psion.com/mobile.
7.5.2.3
What Information Do I Need?
Before you can set up your netpad, you will need to find out some information about
your modem and your Internet e-mail account by:
•
Checking any documentation your ISP supplied about your Internet
account, or contacting your network administrator at work.
•
Contact your network administrator to determine whether you should use
IPv6 (for details see “IPv6 Support” on page 151).
•
Checking your ISP’s web site for technical support.
•
Contacting your ISP by e-mail or phone for technical support.
•
Checking the Psion Teklogix web site at www.psion.com/mobile for
details of worldwide ISPs and to use the ISP configuration wizard.

7.5.2.4
IPv6 Support
The proliferation of users and devices connected to the Internet necessitated an
expanded addressing system for TCP/IP. Windows CE .NET supports the next generation of network layer protocol, Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), which provides increased data security and the maximum number of user addresses. IPv6
increases the address space from 32 to 128 bits, providing for a generally unlimited
number of networks and systems. Also, routing is streamlined since IPv6 uses a
hierarchical routing infrastructure that enables Internet backbone routers to have
much smaller routing tables.
IPv6 is especially useful for mobile devices that roam across networks, since they
encounter fewer problems during roaming than with the previous protocol version,
IPv4. With IPv6 support network transitions are more transparent to devices and
applications.
1. The netpad uses IPv4 by default. In order to enable IPv6 open the
Control Panel to find the IPv6 Support icon.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual

Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Setting Up Your netpad
2. Double-click on the IPv6 Support icon to access the dialogue that
enables this feature.
3. To enable IPv6 network support, check the box, and click OK. Because
the netpad must reset in order to activate the change, a dialogue box
will open to confirm the change or allow you to cancel to prevent resetting. You may also disable the IPv6 feature by unchecking the box, and
allowing the netpad to reset once again.

Teklogix modem cable adaptor. You can only use a Psion Teklogix adaptor,
which can be obtained from your local distributor.
2. Connect your modem to the telephone socket and switch on
the modem.
7.5.3.2
Setting Up Dialing
When you connect to the Internet, your netpad will need to dial your service provider’s telephone. You can set up different dialing ‘locations’ so that your netpad
knows how to dial the number correctly, e.g. if you're dialing from the ‘office’ location, you might need to add a ‘9’ before the number you want to dial.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
General Tips
9.1 General Tips
You should read this chapter if you have any questions or experience problems
using your netpad. If you’re having trouble configuring a program, remember to
refer to the Windows CE Help online document by tapping the ? icon located on
the top right of the program’s menu bar.
9.1.1 Times Aren’t Correct In The Time Program
Note:
Always select the Time Zone first and apply it before setting the time
and date.
If the time is wrong inspite of the correct time zone, this is likely because of “daylight saving” or “summer time” settings (where clocks are put forward for the
summer months).
The dates that clocks are set to change vary from country to country, and sometimes
even within a country; some countries do not use summer times at all. Therefore, the
netpad clock will not change automatically on the date that the clocks change. You
will need to make sure that each zone is set to use its “summer time” setting when
the clocks change in those countries.
9.1.2 If You Forget Your Password
If you forget the machine password, you will not be able to use the netpad until
you perform a “hard reset”. All the files on the internal disk will be lost and
cannot be retrieved (unless stored in Flash—see “The Flash Folder” on page 87).
9.1.3 The netpad Doesn’t Turn On/Off
If the netpad doesn’t seem to turn on:
•
Check the screen contrast to make sure it isn’t set too low.
•
Remove any peripheral cards and connections to check whether they are the
cause of the problem.
•
Recharge the main battery. If you continue to use the netpad when the main
battery is low, it will eventually not have enough power and the netpad will
switch off. You will not be able to switch it on again until you place the
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
169
Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Resetting The netpad
netpad in the docking station to recharge the battery or replace the main
battery with a charged one.
•
If after charging the main battery, the netpad won’t turn on, perform a soft
reset (see “Performing A Soft Reset (WarmBoot)” on page 32). If this
doesn’t correct the problem, perform a hard reset (see “Performing A Hard
Reset” on page 33).
•
If none of the above solutions corrects the problem, contact your local Psion
Teklogix office (see Appendix A: “Support Services And Worldwide
Offices” ).
If the netpad doesn't seem to turn off:
•
Check the automatic switch off time using the Power icon from the
Control Panel.
9.1.4 Resetting The netpad
If you find that you cannot exit a program normally, right-click on the taskbar and
select Task Manager from the context menu. Select the task that appears to be unresponsive and click on the End Task button.
If this does not work, or if your netpad appears to have “locked up”, you can always
perform a “soft reset”. For instructions, please see “Performing A Soft Reset
(WarmBoot)” on page 32. This should restart your netpad while preserving most of
your information.
It is worth trying a soft reset if the keys on the netpad do not appear to respond, or if
the netpad appears to switch on and you are sure that the batteries are good, but the
screen is otherwise blank.
It is possible (although unlikely) that a program failure causes the reset to lose the
information on the Internal disk; it could even prevent the reset from working at all.
If this happens, you will have to perform a “hard reset”. For instructions, please see
“Performing A Hard Reset” on page 33.
9.1.5 Can’t Place The netpad In The Docking Station
If you are having difficulty putting the netpad in the docking station, you may be
attempting to insert it upside down. Push the netpad into the docking station until
you hear a click.

Battery Life Of The netpad Variants
9.1.6 Battery Life Of The netpad Variants
Many variables affect netpad power consumption and battery life. Unlike other
battery chemistries, Lithium Ion batteries do not suddenly fail unless they have been
abused in some way. The battery capacity gradually reduces over the lifetime of the
battery. Typically, the capacity of a netpad battery pack will decline by approximately 15-20% of initial capacity over 300 deep charge/discharge cycles. The
battery capacity also declines slowly with aging, i.e. in storage.
Note:
The Power Properties menus described on pages 16 to 23 are designed to
allow users to set the optimal power management settings that will deliver
the best battery life performance for a given usage scenario. Please refer to
“Usage Scenarios” on page 172 for examples.
‘End-of-life’ expectancy is about 300 deep charge/discharge cycles, with 50% of
original capacity remaining at approximately 500 cycles. A deep charge/discharge
cycle is when the battery is fully charged and then fully discharged. The number of
cycles is proportional to the depth of the charge/discharge—for example, if the
battery is only half discharged and then recharged, about 600 cycles can be
expected.
Table 9.1 shows the measured battery life for the netpad product range under
various conditions. The battery life figures quoted are for guidance only. Actual
battery life experienced may vary from the figures quoted.

Notes:
1. Figures quoted are the number of hours the battery will last if the usage
pattern is repeated until the battery is fully discharged. (Excludes
reserve tank capacity.) See “Usage Scenarios”, below.
2. Battery life times have been rounded to the nearest hour.
3. All battery life figures quoted above are based on units with 64MB
RAM and Transmissive LCD.
4. Battery life for netpad 5x10 and 5x20 variants is dependant on network variables.
5. The figures quoted are based on new, fully-charged battery packs.
6. Maximum initial capacity of the battery packs: 1100/1800/4400 mAh.
7. The figures quoted assume that the battery Suspend threshold has
been set to 20%.
9.1.6.1
Usage Scenarios
The following usage patterns were used to determine the netpad battery life figures
quoted in Table 9.1 on page 171.
Warehouse:
Using a netpad with an 802.11b radio, the user performs five transactions per
minute, which includes a scan, a transmission to the host, a response from the
host and a screen update. The backlight is on for ten seconds/off for two
seconds for the duration of the shift. The user takes no breaks, and the unit is
always able to receive transmissions.
Meter Reading:
Using a netpad without a radio, the user performs one scan per minute, with the
backlight on for ten seconds/off for 50 seconds. User activity continues for 45
minutes, followed by a 15 minute break, during which the terminal would enter
Stand-By mode. There is no radio activity.
Field Service:
Using a netpad with a GSM radio, the user performs 12 transactions per minute,
where each transaction includes a scan, a transmission to the host, and an update
from the host. The terminal is used for 20 minutes, followed by 40 minutes in
Stand-By mode.

Using a netpad with a GSM radio, the user performs one transaction per minute,
where each transaction includes a scan, a transmission to the host, and an update
from the host. The terminal is used for 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes in
Stand-By mode.
9.1.6.2
Charging Times
The standard netpad battery charging solutions do not use trickle charging or fast
charging. The netpad battery pack is charged at a constant rate. The actual charge
time experienced is dependant on capacity of the battery pack and the ambient temperature. The approximate charging times for fully discharged netpad battery packs
are given in Table 9.2.
Important:
As a safety precaution, charging the netpad battery should be
limited to the temperature range: 0°C to +45°C (32°F to 113°F).
Outside of these limits, the safety circuits of the netpad battery
pack will not allow the battery to charge. Discharging should be
limited to the temperature range: -20°C to +60°C (-4°F to 140°F),
and -20°C to +55°C (-4°F to 131°F) for scanner variants.

ActiveSync Connection Problems Using Windows® 95/98/NT 4.0
9.2 ActiveSync Connection Problems
Using Windows® 95/98/NT 4.0
This section is a guide to troubleshooting connection problems between a netpad
and a PC running Windows 95/98/NT 4.0 and ActiveSync. It also presumes you
have already gone through the online help documents that come with ActiveSync,
and still have no success in linking. A basic knowledge of using the netpad and
Windows 95/98/NT 4.0 is necessary. For information about using Windows
95/98/NT 4.0, check your Windows manual or contact the Windows helpline.
9.2.1 Tips When Installing ActiveSync
Close any other programs that are running. This includes virus checkers, uninstallers, floating toolbars etc. If you need to re-install ActiveSync, make sure you uninstall the previous version first.
1. Click on the Start button and select Settings, then Control Panel.
2. Double click the Add/Remove Programs icon. Select ActiveSync in
the list and then click the Add/Remove button.
Important:
174
You must re-start your PC before re-installing ActiveSync or you
will experience problems.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Basic Troubleshooting For Your netpad
9.2.2 Basic Troubleshooting For Your netpad
1. Close down all applications. To see all active programs, look on the
taskbar. Each program running will have a button. The programs can be
activated then closed normally, or if necessary, you can right-click on
the program’s taskbar button and choose Close from the context menu.
2. Check that the PC Connection setting in the Control Panel is enabled
and set to the correct serial port. Note that a partnership must already
exist for the Infrared port to use ActiveSync correctly.
3. Perform a soft reset on the netpad.
9.2.3 Basic Troubleshooting For Your PC
1. Close down any other open applications in Windows.
2. If you have a laptop:
• Make sure you have no PC Cards (PCMCIA cards) plugged in.
• Most laptops have power-saving features that disable the COM ports.
Turn these power saving options OFF.
• If your PC has an Infrared port, make sure it is disabled and your
serial/COM ports are enabled. Psion Teklogix can support you with any
of these issues. Check the laptop’s manual or contact the manufacturers
support department to get these issues rectified.
3. The ActiveSync Connection server icon is in the bottom right-hand
corner of your PC Screen. When you are not connected, it is a grey
circle. When you have made a successful connection, it becomes a
green circle.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Basic Troubleshooting For Your PC
• Right-click the ActiveSync icon and
choose Connection Settings from the
context menu.
• Make sure that the correct connection
type is checked.
• It is possible for ActiveSync to conflict with a modem or mouse. Symptoms are the mouse pointer intermittently locking up or software that
uses the modem intermittently freezing. Check your PC’s device
manager for conflicts.
4. If you are using Windows NT 4.0, check that you have at least
Service Pack 3 installed. If necessary, install it or contact your Systems
Administrator.

Device Conflicts
9.2.4 Device Conflicts
To check for device conflicts:
1. Click on the Start button, select Settings and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click on the System icon.
3. On the Device manager page of the System properties dialogue, check
for icons marked with a
symbol.
Note:
This symbol means that the marked device is conflicting with another
device. If a modem or COM port is conflicting, this could be a cause of
ActiveSync not connecting. Contact the person or organization that supports your PC to resolve the conflict.
4. There is no Device Manager in Windows NT 4.0. The closest is a list of
IRQs, I/O ports and DMA channels. These are accessed by the Start
button, selecting Programs, then Administrative Tools (Common),
then Windows NT Diagnostics. Select the Resources page in the
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
177
Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Fax/Modem On COM 1/2/3/4
Windows NT Diagnostics dialogue box. If you do not have this option
or you are in any doubt about it, you should contact your Systems
Administrator.
9.2.5 Fax/Modem On COM 1/2/3/4
If you have a Fax/Modem using COM Port 3 or 4, and ActiveSync on COM 1 or 2
(or vice versa), you may have trouble when trying to connect with the netpad.
Because of the way a PC handles COM ports, COM1 and COM3 are ‘linked’, as are
COM2 and COM4. Specifically, they share the same Interrupt Request (IRQ).
In practice, this means that if you have a modem on COM3, it may conflict with the
netpad on COM1 (and the same applies for COM4 and COM2). The solution is to
try using ActiveSync on a different port or to assign a different IRQ.
You can check the COM port properties by following the steps above to get to the
Device Manager page and double-clicking on the COM port.
Again, if you are in any doubt about whether you are able to do this safely, you
should contact the person or organization that supports your PC.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Troubleshooting ActiveSync Synchronization Problems
If you have an external modem and have unplugged it to use the Psion Teklogix
serial cable on the same port, you will not get a connection. Windows 95/98/NT 4.0
reserves this port for use with the modem and so you will have to use another port.
9.3 Troubleshooting ActiveSync
Synchronization Problems
This section discusses various problems that may be encountered when synchronizing using a partnership.
Some familiarity with these applications, Windows 95/98/NT 4.0, and your netpad
is assumed. You will also need a full installation of your PC PIM.
Note:
This section should be used in conjunction with the manual to setting up a
synchronization for each application.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
179
Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Basic Troubleshooting For Synchronization Problems
The majority of synchronization problems are caused by setting up a synchronization incorrectly. Please make sure you have read the appropriate sections in
Chapter 6: “Connecting netpad To A PC” first. These explain the correct way to set
up a synchronization.
9.3.1 Basic Troubleshooting For Synchronization Problems
Some common causes of sychronization errors include incorrect settings, and
e-mail issues.
Incorrect settings can result from the wrong program being associated with a particular synchronization event. If you have Outlook installed on your PC, ActiveSync
will most likely automatically assume that Tasks, E-mails, etc., should all be associated with Outlook. Verify that the programs you are using are associated with the
type of synchronization you require.
E-mail issues usually stem from conflicts in address books, and conflicting settings
in ActiveSync itself. To verify that e-mails get synchronized to and from the netpad
correctly, verify that the e-mail addresses in the netpad outbox are valid. ActiveSync
will provide some error text on synchronization to help you detect such problems.
Conflicting settings in ActiveSync can result in e-mails being transferred as headers
only, or without attachments. Check the settings for the ActiveSync service in Inbox
on the netpad to resolve this issue.
9.3.2 Other Things To Try
1. Delete and recreate your partnership in ActiveSync.
When ActiveSync connects to a machine using a partnership for the
first time, it uses the name “WindowsCE”. Every subsequent partnership created after the first asks you to enter a name for that machine.
Partnerships register details about your netpad on your PC. Sometimes
this information can become corrupt.
180
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 User Manual
Chapter 9: Troubleshooting And Tips
Other Things To Try
• Open ActiveSync by double-clicking on the ActiveSync icon in the
PC’s taskbar. This will bring up the ActiveSync dialogue.
• Click on the File menu and select Delete Partnership from the menu.
The Delete Partnership menu item will not be available if there are no
partnerships.
If you have deleted all the partnerships, the next time you connect your
netpad, the partnership will be created as “WindowsCE”.
2. Make a new backup and recreate any synchronizations.
