These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
x
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation distance between the equipment and the receiver.
•
If you are using the equipment with a mains adaptor, plug it into an outlet
which is on a different circuit from that to which the receiver is connected.

RADIO FREQUENCY EMISSIONS
Do not use in aircraft or hospitals. Some equipment in hospitals and aircraft are not
shielded from radio frequency energy. Do not use the NETBOOK PRO on board
aircraft, or in hospitals, without first obtaining permission.
Do not use near pacemakers. The product may affect the operation of some medically implanted devices such as pacemakers, causing them to malfunction. Avoid
placing your product next to such devices. Keep a minimum distance of 15 cm
between the device and the product to reduce the risk of interference. If you have
any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn off the NETBOOK PRO
and contact your cardiologist for assistance.
Note:
In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the
US adopted an updated safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency energy emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. The design of this
product complies with the FCC guidelines and those standards.
Use of non-approved accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This equipment was tested for FCC compliance under conditions that included the
use of shielded cables and connectors between it and the peripherals. It is important
that you use shielded cable and connectors to reduce the possibility of causing radio
and television interference. Shielded cables, suitable for the NETBOOK PRO, can
be obtained from an authorised Psion Teklogix dealer.
If the user modifies the equipment or its peripherals in any way, and these modifications are not approved by Psion Teklogix, the FCC may withdraw the user’s right to

2.5 Power Management
The NETBOOK PRO is powered by a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery pack (for
details, see “Battery Life Of The NETBOOK PRO” on page 102). The NETBOOK
PRO can be powered from AC when used with the AC adaptor. When the
NETBOOK PRO is powered from the AC adaptor, it will also charge the battery
pack.
Note:
How long your batteries last will depend upon how you use your NETBOOK PRO. The NETBOOK PRO will use considerably more battery
power when you have the brightness turned up, are using files stored on a
memory card, or are using infrared or a communications card.
You can take steps to help prolong your battery’s life:
• Turn the screen brightness down.
• Set the delay time to 10 minutes in the Switch to Suspend option of the
Battery Power scheme of the Power Schemes tab in the Power Properties control panel (see page 20).
• Open and use files from internal storage instead of from a memory card,
as the NETBOOK PRO requires more power to write to memory cards.

Battery
To check the battery power status, click on the Battery tab:
Figure 2.3 Power Properties: Battery
This tab describes the main and backup batteries, and their state. A warning message
to change or recharge the battery appears when the main or backup battery levels
become critically low.
This tab includes a checkbox, Using multiple main battery packs. When this checkbox is selected, the NETBOOK PRO calibrates each battery pack anew each time
the pack is inserted. When this checkbox is not checked, the NETBOOK PRO
retains the battery calibration information when the battery pack is removed. See
“Battery Calibration” below for details.
This tab also displays an indication of charge or discharge current for the main battery.The user can see how the current varies as the main battery charges and discharges, the backlight is adjusted, or a peripheral card is inserted.
Note:
2.5.1.2
The current measurement displayed may be up to ten seconds old.
Battery Calibration
The NETBOOK PRO uses ‘battery calibration’ to increase the accuracy of the
remaining charge indication for its rechargeable battery.
When a battery pack is first connected, the NETBOOK PRO tracks its discharge and
charge current and voltage over a full discharge/charge cycle. This enables it to form
a picture of how the battery behaves, and thus give accurate estimates of how long
16
Psion Teklogix NETBOOK PRO Win CE 4.2 User Manual
Chapter 2: Getting Started
Power Properties
the charge will last during day-to-day use. An indicator beside the estimate of
remaining charge in the main battery displays either ‘Not calibrated’, ‘Calibrating’,
or nothing:
•
When the Battery tab of the Power Properties dialog displays the ‘Not calibrated’ message, the NETBOOK PRO has not yet calibrated the battery.
•
When it displays the ‘Calibrating’ message, the NETBOOK PRO is setting
up its battery calibration. To do this, it tracks the performance of the battery
through a complete discharge and charge cycle.
The percentage capacity estimate of the battery is not very accurate in the 'Not calibrated' state, somewhat more accurate in the 'Calibrating' state, and should be very
accurate once the battery has been calibrated.
Note:
Psion Teklogix recommends that the battery be fully charged when first
used, then fully discharged before being charged again.
When the battery is calibrated, the ‘Calibrating’ indication vanishes. Once the
battery is calibrated, the NETBOOK PRO continues to refine its estimate every time
it sees a full charge or discharge cycle. The battery-charge indication is thus adjusted
for ageing battery packs.
A calibration cycle will abort if the AC power state is changed (if the power cable is
plugged in or removed). Calibration during charging can also abort if the unit gets
too hot.
The ‘Not calibrated’ indicator will reappear, and calibration of the gauge is lost, if
any of these four conditions occur:
•
The unit automatically shuts off due to low battery, when the capacity estimate is greater than 6%.
•
Battery charging ceases (charge current less than 100mA) and the capacity
estimate is less than 94%.
•
Capacity estimate reaches 0% and unit continues to run for more than 15
minutes.
•
Capacity estimate reaches 100% and unit continues to charge with charge
current greater than 100mA for more than 15 minutes.

2.5.1.3
Power Saving Schemes
The Power Schemes tab specifies the settings for the two ‘power schemes’ named
On AC Power, and On Battery Power. These power schemes group settings to be
used when the NETBOOK PRO is running on battery power or when it is connected
to external power.
Figure 2.4 Power Properties: Schemes
Note:
The Power Properties Schemes settings are cumulative—that is, to determine when the NETBOOK PRO enters ‘Suspend’ state, the unit waits for
the ‘Switch to Dim’ time to elapse, followed by the ‘Switch to Stand-By’
time, and then, once the ‘Switch to Suspend’ time has elapsed, ‘Suspend’
state is activated.
When setting the Switch to Dim, Switch to Stand-By, and Switch to Suspend states,
keep the following in mind. Because the NETBOOK PRO ‘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 Switch to
Dim, Switch to Stand-By, and Switch to Suspend timeouts should be selected
carefully since the NETBOOK PRO will go to sleep (appear off) when this time has
elapsed, saving battery power.
Psion Teklogix recommends starting with a total of 10 minutes for this overall
timeout. 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 NETBOOK PRO 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).

Figure 2.6 Power Schemes: Switch To Standby Menu
Press any button to bring the unit out of Standby state.
Switch to Suspend
Once the time specified in the Switch to Dim and the Switch to Stand-By states have
elapsed, the NETBOOK PRO 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 NETBOOK PRO 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 press the Fn and Esc keys together to put
the NETBOOK PRO into Suspend state. The NETBOOK PRO may be configured
to allow entry into Suspend state if external communications connections are active;
these options can be set in the Advanced tab of the Power Properties dialog.

Performing A Soft Reset
If this does not work, or your NETBOOK PRO appears to have ‘locked up’, you can
perform a ‘soft reset’. This should restart your NETBOOK PRO while preserving
most of your information. After a soft reset, any changes to open files will be lost.
Files in internal flash storage are preserved.
It is worth trying a soft reset if the keys on the NETBOOK PRO do not appear to
respond, or if the NETBOOK PRO appears to switch on and you are sure that the
batteries are good, but the screen is otherwise blank.
It is possible, though unlikely, that performing a soft reset after a program failure
would cause the NETBOOK PRO to lose the information in its internal flash storage; it could even prevent the reset from working at all. If this happens, you will
have to perform a ‘hard reset’. This will erase all data in internal storage.
Important:
A hard reset resets the NETBOOK PRO completely. All running
programs, unsaved information, or programs installed to the
RAM disk will be lost.
Anything saved to non-volatile (flash disk) storage will be preserved. Any registry settings that have been written to non-volatile
storage will be preserved.
2.9.1 Performing A Soft Reset
To perform a soft reset:
1. Do one of the following:

To perform a hard reset:
•
Remove all batteries and AC power.
Notes:
1. When performing a hard reset, it is a good idea to remove the backup
batteries before the main battery, to avoid unnecessary drain of the
backup batteries.
2. Hard resetting the NETBOOK PRO will delete the ActiveSync

Entering Owner and Password Information
3.1 Things To Do First
This section describes what you may need to do to set up your NETBOOK PRO:
•
Enter owner information in the Owner control panel, so that your
NETBOOK PRO can be returned if you lose it.
•
Set a password for your machine, so that other people cannot access
your information.
•

3.2 Things To Do Next
This section gives a brief overview of what else you may want to do when you first
use your NETBOOK PRO.
3.2.1 Setting Up ActiveSync
ActiveSync allows you to connect the NETBOOK PRO to a PC serially, or through
infrared or radio communication. File transfers, file synchronization and sending email can all be done via ActiveSync.
ActiveSync must be connected through serial or infrared at least once before other
connection types (Bluetooth, Ethernet, 802.11) are possible.
Install the most recent version of ActiveSync on your PC (check the Microsoft
website for the latest software).
3.2.1.1
Partnerships
There are two types of connection provided for by ActiveSync:
•
Guest - A guest connection allows file transfers. No synchronization is performed. If the NETBOOK PRO is password protected, the password
prompt will appear when connecting as guest.
•
Partnership - A partnership connection allows for synchronization of files,
e-mail and other data. If the NETBOOK PRO is password protected, a password prompt will appear before allowing synchronization. It is necessary to
establish a partnership before trying to connect to ActiveSync via Ethernet,
Bluetooth, or 802.11.
You can disconnect any ActiveSync connection by double-clicking on the blue icon
in the NETBOOK PRO’s system tray and selecting the Disconnect button from the
dialog.

Creating New Files
If you use NETBOOK PRO files with a PC, you may wish to create folders that
match equivalent folders on your PC. This will make transferring files between the
NETBOOK PRO and PC easier.
4.5.1 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,
“2002 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.
4.6 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.
4.7 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.

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.
4.8 Managing Folders
To move one or more folders or files from one location to another:
1. First highlight the file(s) or folder(s) to select them. Drag with the
stylus to select more than one file.
To select all the files/folders in the current folder, use the Select all
command on the Edit menu. To deselect items, press the Esc key.
2. Select the Cut command from the Edit menu. A dotted line appears
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.
Note:
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.

Memory-Card Folders
Important:
If you are deleting folders, remember that the entire contents of
the folders (including all the other folders contained within them
and all their files) will also be deleted.
4.9 Memory-Card Folders
Each memory card appears as a separate folder in My Computer.
Folder For MMC/SD Card
Folder For First CF/PCMCIA Card
Folder For Second CF/PCMCIA Card
The MMC/SD card has folder name 'MMC Card'. In the Storage Manager, it has
device name 'SMC1:' (see section 4.12 on page 56 for details about the Storage
Manager).
CompactFlash and PCMCIA cards are treated identically by the system. Whichever
of them is inserted first is assigned folder name 'Storage Card' and device name
'DSK2:'. Whichever is inserted second is assigned folder name 'Storage Card2' and
device name 'DSK3:'. These folder and device names remain constant while the
cards are connected (if one is removed, the names for the other do not change), but if
both the CF and PCMCIA cards are removed and replaced in reverse order, the designations will be swapped.
Note:
This assumes that there is only one partition on each card.

The Flash Folder
4.10 The Flash Folder
The Flash folder, accessed from the My Computer icon on the desktop, can be used
both to store data securely in case of power loss, and to install .cab (cabinet) files.
Folder For Internal Flash Storage
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.
The Flash folder can also be used to store .cab files that you want installed automatically following a cold boot. Place any .cab files you want installed into the Flash
folder named Auto Restore. 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.

Checking System Memory Use
4.11 Checking System Memory Use
To display the amount of system memory (RAM) 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.
4.11.1 What Happens When System Memory Is Full?
When the system memory is nearly full, you will see warning dialogs when running
programs to indicate that the NETBOOK PRO’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 dialogs, menus, etc. These can fail with a
message like ‘Memory full’. The NETBOOK PRO 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.
4.11.2 Additional Memory And Programs
You can insert memory cards into the slots of the NETBOOK PRO. You might use
them as additional memory for storing files, or to add more programs to the
NETBOOK PRO. For details, please refer to “Memory Cards” on page 24.
If a memory card contains additional programs:
their icons will be available in the card’s folder.

Chapter 5: Using The PC Connection
Introduction
5.1 Introduction
This chapter explains how to use ActiveSync to copy files between a PC and the
NETBOOK PRO, and to ‘synchronize’ files between the two devices. It assumes
some basic knowledge of Windows® PC operating systems.
These instructions assume that you have established a link between your PC and
NETBOOK PRO. See “Setting Up ActiveSync” on page 40 for details on communication links.
•
Check that a link exists between the NETBOOK PRO and the PC by
looking in the PC’s System tray in the bottom right-hand corner of your
desktop. There should be a green circle in the system tray 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 NETBOOK PRO, check the taskbar for the blue monitor icon. If
there is no icon, your unit is not connected.
5.2 Using ActiveSync
ActiveSync allows Windows Explorer to see files on your NETBOOK PRO, using
the Explore icon in the ActiveSync window. You can copy your NETBOOK PRO
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.

Working With Your Files
5.4 Working With Your Files
5.4.1 Looking At Files On Your NETBOOK PRO
Using Windows Explorer, you can open, move, copy and delete files stored on your
NETBOOK PRO 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

folder.
•
Double-click on the NETBOOK PRO’s My
Computer folder under Mobile Device, to
display the files and folders on the drive. There
will be a folder for each inserted memory card.
5.4.2 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 NETBOOK PRO 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.

Chapter 5: Using The PC Connection
Copying A File Using Copy And Paste
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.
5.4.3 Copying A File Using Copy And Paste
Using Windows Explorer, you can copy files between your PC and NETBOOK
PRO 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 NETBOOK PRO.
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.

Opening NETBOOK PRO Files From Your PC
You can use Windows Explorer to manage files and folders stored on your
NETBOOK PRO in the same way as you can on your PC’s drives.
Warning:
When you delete a file on your NETBOOK PRO using your PC, it
is permanently removed from the NETBOOK PRO’s internal storage. The file cannot be retrieved from the PC’s Windows Recycle
Bin, which only stores files deleted from the PC’s drives.
5.4.4 Opening NETBOOK PRO Files From Your PC
You can open a file on your NETBOOK PRO 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 NETBOOK PRO when you have finished. To open a file from
Windows Explorer, navigate to the Mobile Device section of the file tree, locate the
file, then double-click on the file icon or press Enter.
When you save the file from within the PC application, ActiveSync transfers the
saved file back to your NETBOOK PRO.
5.5 Backing Up Your NETBOOK PRO With ActiveSync
5.5.1 Performing Your First Backup
You can use ActiveSync to back up all the files stored on your NETBOOK PRO to
your PC. Keeping backups of your NETBOOK PRO files on your PC means that
you have a separate copy of all your work that can be restored to your NETBOOK
PRO. For example, you can restore backed up files to your NETBOOK PRO 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 NETBOOK
PRO. ActiveSync displays a progress window showing how long the
backup will take and will inform you when it has completed.

Performing Regular Backups
5.5.2 Performing Regular Backups
You can set ActiveSync to automatically backup when the device connects, so you
do not need to back up your NETBOOK PRO manually.
5.6 Synchronizing Your NETBOOK PRO
5.6.1 What Is Synchronization?
You can use synchronization to manage information that you wish to keep up to date
on both your PC and NETBOOK PRO. When you synchronize, ActiveSync checks
the information in your PC program with the matching information on your
NETBOOK PRO, and then updates the files on both your PC and NETBOOK PRO
to include the new information. To synchronize, you must set up a partnership
between the NETBOOK PRO and the PC.
5.6.2 Synchronizing Your NETBOOK PRO
This section details the set-up and day-to-day use of ActiveSync to synchronize files
on the PC. The instructions assume some familiarity with the use of Windows, and
that you are using ActiveSync.
Partnerships are only necessary for synchronization, not to simply copy files from
the PC to the NETBOOK PRO.
5.6.2.1
Creating The Partnership
1. Make sure that your NETBOOK PRO is connected to the PC via the
serial cable.
2. Set the PC to listen on the port the serial cable is connected to.
3. On the NETBOOK PRO, check the PC Connection control panel to
make sure it is set to send to the correct port.

5.7 On-Schedule Outlook Sync
The NETBOOK PRO includes Pocket On-Schedule, a full-featured email, schedule,
and contact-management program. Pocket On-Schedule comes with On-Schedule
Outlook Sync, which enables it to synchronize information with Microsoft Outlook
running on Windows 2000. On-Schedule Outlook Sync runs on your PC and uses
the ActiveSync connection to communicate with the NETBOOK PRO.
To use On-Schedule Outlook Sync, you must be running Windows 2000 and
Microsoft Outlook, and you must have already established a partnership through
ActiveSync with the NETBOOK PRO.
On-Schedule Outlook Sync can be installed from the CD that accompanies the
NETBOOK PRO. After installation, help for the program is available from Start,
Programs, On-Schedule, On-Schedule Outlook Sync Help.
Help for Pocket On-Schedule itself is available on the NETBOOK PRO by selecting
Start, Programs, Pocket On-Schedule to open the program, then selecting File,
Help Contents. The manuals for both Pocket On-Schedule and On-Schedule
Outlook Sync can also be found on the CD.

application) on your NETBOOK PRO, 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 NETBOOK PRO, and then provide
step-by-step instructions.
6.5.1.1
Using The Internet On The NETBOOK PRO
You can use your NETBOOK PRO 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 NETBOOK PRO.
6.5.1.2
Using E-mail On The NETBOOK PRO
You can use your NETBOOK PRO to send and receive e-mail messages by connecting to a remote mailbox:
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 90 to continue.

Overview
6.5.1.3
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 NETBOOK PRO.
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 NETBOOK PRO
(i.e. you must use a PC). Move on to ‘Setting up your NETBOOK PRO’ 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 NETBOOK PRO” on page 92 to continue.
Web-based E-mail Account
This is an e-mail account that you must connect to using a web browser, such as
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 NETBOOK PRO for
Internet access. You will need to use the Internet Explorer program to
access your e-mail provider’s web site.
6.5.1.4
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 NETBOOK PRO.

Overview
•
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:
6.5.1.5
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.

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.
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.

How To Use Internet Explorer/Inbox
To access the Internet, and send and receive e-mail on your NETBOOK PRO 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 NETBOOK PRO to the telephone network. You can use the following types of modem with your
NETBOOK PRO:
• Standard external PC modems.
• PCMCIA- and CF-card modems.
• GSM radio modem, see “GSM/GPRS Radio Configuration” on page 80
for details. These are available as PCMCIA and CF cards.
• Infrared-enabled or Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones with built-in
modems.
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 account 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 account
is ‘data-enabled’.

Chapter 7: Troubleshooting And Tips
General Tips
7.1 General Tips
You should read this chapter if you have any questions or experience problems
using your NETBOOK PRO.
7.1.1 Times Aren’t Correct In The Time Program
This is likely to be 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
NETBOOK PRO 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.
7.1.2 If You Forget Your Password
If you forget the power-on password, you will not be able to use the NETBOOK
PRO unless you reload the operating system. To do this:
1. Press a thin object such as an unfolded paper clip onto the reset switch.
The NETBOOK PRO turns off.
2. Press and hold the Ctrl, D, and On keys simultaneously. The
NETBOOK PRO’s boot loader appears.
3. Press the ! (exclamation mark) key. The NETBOOK PRO reloads its
operating system and displays the Desktop.
Warning:
All installed programs and files in internal storage, except for those
in the Flash folder, will be lost and cannot be retrieved. Registry
entries will also be deleted.
7.1.3 The NETBOOK PRO Doesn’t Turn On/Off
If the NETBOOK PRO doesn’t seem to turn on:
Psion Teklogix NETBOOK PRO Win CE 4.2 User Manual
101
Chapter 7: Troubleshooting And Tips
Resetting The NETBOOK PRO
•
Recharge the main battery. If you continue to use the NETBOOK PRO
when the main battery is low, it will eventually not have enough power and
the NETBOOK PRO will switch off. You will not be able to switch it on
again until you reconnect the AC power to recharge the battery, or replace
the main battery with a charged one.
If the NETBOOK PRO doesn't seem to turn off:
•
Check the automatic switch off time using the Power icon from the
Control Panel. See “Power Management” on page 14.
7.1.4 Resetting The NETBOOK PRO
If you find that you cannot exit a program normally, right-click or alt-tap 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.
Press Alt Tab or Ctrl Alt Delete briefly to bring up the task manager. This is useful
when a misbehaving program is monopolizing system resources and slowing the
system.
Note:
If you hold Ctrl Alt Delete for more than 3 seconds, the NETBOOK PRO
will soft reset.
If this does not work, or if your NETBOOK PRO appears to have “locked up”, you
can always perform a “reset”. For instructions, please see “Performing A Soft
Reset” on page 31. This should restart your NETBOOK PRO while preserving most
of your information.
It is worth trying a reset if the keys on the NETBOOK PRO do not appear to
respond, or if the NETBOOK PRO appears to switch on and you are sure that the
batteries are good, but the screen is otherwise blank.
7.1.5 Battery Life Of The NETBOOK PRO
Many variables affect NETBOOK PRO power consumption and battery life. Unlike
batteries using other 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 NETBOOK PRO battery pack
will decline by approximately 15-20% of initial capacity over 400 charge/discharge
cycles. The battery capacity also declines slowly with aging, i.e. in storage.
102
Psion Teklogix NETBOOK PRO Win CE 4.2 User Manual
Chapter 7: Troubleshooting And Tips
ActiveSync Connection Problems Using Windows® 95/98/NT 4.0
Conventionally, the NETBOOK PRO battery pack is considered to have reached
'end-of-life' when its capacity has declined to 50% of the pack’s initial capacity.
Therefore, a NETBOOK PRO battery pack will typically reach its ‘end of life’ after
approximately 1000 charging/discharge cycles (although the battery will still work
for some time after this point).
7.1.5.1
Charging Times
The standard NETBOOK PRO battery charging solution does not use trickle charging or fast charging. The NETBOOK PRO 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 time is 3 to 4 hours.
7.2 ActiveSync Connection Problems
Using Windows® 95/98/NT 4.0
This section is a guide to troubleshooting connection problems between a
NETBOOK PRO 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 NETBOOK PRO 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.
7.2.1 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:
You must re-start your PC before re-installing ActiveSync or you
will experience problems.

Basic Troubleshooting For Your PC
• 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

Device Conflicts
• 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.
7.2.4 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 dialog, check for
icons marked with a
symbol.
Note:
106
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
Windows NT Diagnostics dialog box. If you do not have this option or
you are in any doubt about it, you should contact your Systems Administrator.

Chapter 7: Troubleshooting And Tips
Fax/Modem On COM 1/2/3/4
7.2.5 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 NETBOOK
PRO.
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
NETBOOK PRO 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.
108

Temp Folder
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.
7.2.6 Temp Folder
The ActiveSync connection can be affected if you have not specified, or have incorrectly specified, your Temp folder. To specify this:
1. Click Start and
select Run. Type
sysedit in the dialog
and click OK.

Troubleshooting ActiveSync Synchronization Problems
7.3 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
NETBOOK PRO 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.
The majority of synchronization problems are caused by setting up a synchronization incorrectly. Please make sure you have read the appropriate sections in
Chapter 5: “Using The PC Connection” first. These explain the correct way to set
up a synchronization.
7.3.1 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
NETBOOK PRO correctly, verify that the e-mail addresses in the NETBOOK PRO
outbox are valid. ActiveSync will provide some error text on synchronization to
help you detect such problems. Conflicting settings in ActiveSync can result in emails being transferred as headers only, or without attachments. Check the settings
for the ActiveSync service in Inbox on the NETBOOK PRO to resolve this issue.

Chapter 7: Troubleshooting And Tips
Other Things To Try
7.3.2 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 NETBOOK PRO on your PC.
Sometimes this information can become corrupt.
• Open ActiveSync by double-clicking on the ActiveSync icon in the
PC’s system tray. This will bring up the ActiveSync dialog.
• 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
NETBOOK PRO, the partnership will be created as “WindowsCE”.
2. Make a new backup and recreate any synchronizations.
