General Information
SECTION 1
Backlight and Display Contrast
Adjustment
Your hand-held computer display contains a backlight for
operating in dark conditions. Although it greatly improves
operating in dark conditions it does shorten your battery
run time. Your hand-held computer will shut the backlight
off when there is no activity. Section 2 explains how to turn
on the backlight and adjust the contrast of the display.
Battery
Main Battery Pack
This hand-held computer uses a rechargeable lithium ion
(Li Ion) battery pack.
Your hand-held computer senses the capacity (run time) left
in your main battery pack before it goes into a low battery
condition.
This user’s guide may occasionally use the term “cycles”
when presenting rechargeable battery instructions. Cycles
are the number of times the rechargeable battery pack can
be drained, and recharged during the life of the battery. The
rechargeable battery design should give you many cycles of
use.
When you press the ON key to suspend operation, your
hand-held computer does not completely turn itself off. The
main battery pack is protecting data and if the pack is completely charged it will protect the data for about six days.
Backup Battery
When your hand-held computer goes into shutdown mode
because of low battery condition, the data is protected by
the backup battery. Your hand-held computer will not accept data or process transactions until you deal with the
6212 Hand-Held Computer User’s Guide
1-9
General Information
SECTION 1
low battery condition. A fully charged backup battery will
save data for about 10 hours.
Your hand-held computer contains a rechargeable NiCd
backup battery. Most of the time the backup battery is in a
rest mode, ready to take over data protection instantly
when the main battery cells are in low condition or out of
the hand-held computer.
If you are storing your hand-held computer for a long period
remove all batteries. This will prevent any damage that
could occur to your hand-held computer should the cells develop a leak.
Memory
This hand-held computer design uses these types of
memory:
"
"
Main Memory DRAM
Flash ROM
Main Memory
Your main memory DRAM is 8 Megabytes. This memory is
protected by the backup battery during low main battery
conditions or when the main battery pack is removed.
Flash ROM
Your hand-held computer has 2 MB of flash ROM. This
stores the BIOS and DOS firmware. Applications stored in
flash ROM are copied into DRAM for execution. Flash does
not require a battery in your hand-held computer to maintain its contents.

SECTION 1
Reset Switch
In the rare event that your hand-held computer fails to respond to your input, it may be necessary to “reset.” Avoid
using the reset switch as this increases the chances that
data will be lost. Only use the reset switch after trying all
other solutions. Refer to the Troubleshooting Table in Section 4 and try those solutions before resetting your computer.
The Reset switch access is located behind the 15-pin connector. To access use a straightened large paper clip, insert
one end in the reset switch hole.

"
"
Install the main and backup batteries
“Power-up” your hand-held computer
Install optional memory cards
Connect to peripheral devices
Getting Started
Unpack your 6212 Hand-Held Computer and inspect it for
signs of physical damage that may have occurred in shipment or storage.
Fully charge the batteries in your hand-held computer before using them. Put the computer on a charging source for
at least 10 hours to ensure that the backup battery and
main battery pack are completely charged.
When you start using your hand-held computer or any time
that all power has been completely removed, you are “cold
booting” your hand-held computer. The method you use depends on your application.
For example you may download (transfer from the host
computer to your hand-held computer) the application and
data. Or, you may use PC cards to load the application and
data.

Introduction
Your 6212 Hand-Held Computer is designed to withstand
normal use in harsh environments. Occasional maintenance
is required to ensure trouble-free operation. The procedures
in this section should help keep your hand-held computer in
good working condition.
Maintenance procedures included in this section provides
instructions on identifying Low Battery conditions, replacing the handstrap, and cleaning your hand-held computer.
Low Battery Indication
When you press the ON key to resume operation and it does
not respond at all, this usually indicates a low main battery
condition. Insert your hand-held computer in a printer or
other charging source and your hand-held computer will
turn on.
If it does not respond when inserted in the equipment that
provides charging, another problem could exist. Refer to the
Troubleshooting section for solutions.

Cleaning Your Hand-Held Computer
Periodic cleaning helps maintain the appearance and reliability of your hand-held computer. When cleaning your
hand-held computer, inspect the keyboard, handstrap, covers, display, connectors, and peripheral products for obvious
signs of damage or wear.
B CAUTION:
Do not use any abrasive cleaning compounds, ketonic solvents
(acetone or ketone) or aromatic solvents (toluene or xylene) to
clean any part of your hand-held computer. These solutions will
cause permanent damage to your hand-held computer.
Never pour cleaners directly on the hand-held computer.
Instead put the cleaner on a soft cloth and gently wipe the
case.
Case and Display
We recommend cleaning the exterior of your hand-held computer using a soft cloth dampened with:
"
"
MICRO-CLEAN II cleanser, made by Foresight International, Inc. 4887 F Street, Omaha, NE
68127-0205 (telephone number 1-800-637-1344)
Glass cleaners or isopropyl alcohol
Surface Connectors
If surface connectors become dirty or tarnished, clean them
with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. It may also be
necessary to lightly burnish them with a pencil eraser.
Check the connectors on the docks or printers to ensure
they are clean.

APPENDIX B
stopped when temperatures fall below 0° C (32° F) or rise
above 40° C (104° F).
Considerations
As battery conditioning removes charge from the batteries,
take care to keep the computer on charge once you start a
conditioning cycle or if a condition cycle stops due to error.
If the computer is removed from charge during a condition
cycle, the computer may suffer data loss or reset itself depending on the battery condition. Also, as the state of the
batteries is unknown, improper functioning of the backup
battery system may occur and result in improper computer
behavior and data loss if the computer is used for data processing purposes before the batteries can be fully recharged.
Due to the risk involved in conditioning, remove important
data from the computer before you start a condition cycle. If
anything goes wrong, this data can be restored.
If errors are reported during the condition cycle, the condition cycle terminates. If this occurs, the battery being conditioned should charge completely or be replaced with a
charged battery before you use it. It takes two hours for the
main battery to charge and 12.5 hours for the backup battery to charge. To reduce chances of condition cycle errors,
keep the computer on charge until the cycle is complete and
only cycle the batteries in temperatures below 30° C (86° F).
