When the Battery Pack Has Deteriorated, Replace It with a New One

Continued use of a damaged battery pack may result in heat generation, ignition or battery rupture.

Do not touch the terminals on the battery pack. The battery pack may no longer function properly if the contacts are dirty or damaged.

Do not expose the battery pack to water, or allow it to become wet.

If the battery pack will not be used for a long period of time (a month or more), charge or discharge (use) the battery pack until the remaining battery level becomes

30% to 40% and store it in a cool, dry place.

This computer prevents overcharging of the battery by recharging only when the remaining power is less than approx. 95% (when Economy Mode (ECO) is enabled:

75%) of capacity.

The battery pack is not charged when the computer is first purchased. Be sure to charge it before using it for the first time. When the AC adaptor is connected to the computer, charging begins automatically.

Should the battery leak and the fluid get into your eyes, do not rub your eyes. Immediately flush your eyes with clear water and see a doctor for medical treatment as soon as possible.

CAUTION:

Risk of Explosion if Battery is replaced by an Incorrect Type.

Dispose of Used Batteries According to the Instructions.

58-E-1

NOTE

The battery pack may become warm during recharging or normal use. This is completely normal.

Recharging will not commence if internal temperature of the battery pack is outside of the allowable temperature range (0 °C to 55 °C {32 °F to

131 °F}). ( Reference Manual “Battery

Power”) Once the allowable range requirement is satisfied, charging begins automatically. Note that the recharging time varies based on the usage conditions. (Recharging takes longer than usual when the temperature is 10 °C {50 °F} or below.)

In high-temperature environments, the battery takes longer to fully recharge. In low-temperature environments, the battery takes longer to fully recharge and the operating time is shorter. Only use the computer within the allowable temperature range.

The battery pack is a consumable item. If the amount of time the computer can be run by using a particular battery pack becomes dramatically shorter and repeated recharging does not restore its performance, the battery pack should be replaced with a new one.

When transporting a spare battery inside a package, briefcase, etc., it is recommended that it be placed in a plastic bag so that its contacts are protected.

Always power off the computer when it is not in use. Leaving the computer on when the AC adaptor is not connected will exhaust the remaining battery capacity.

A lithium ion battery that is recyclable powers the product you have purchased.

Please call 1-800-8-BATTERY for information on how to recycle this battery.

Maintenance

To clean display (LCD)

Use the soft cloth included with the computer (For more information, refer to Reference Manual “Suggestions About

Cleaning the LCD Surface”.)

Cleaning the display while the power is on may cause the computer to malfunction. Also, dirt on the touchscreen is easier to see when the computer is powered off, and so is easier to clean.

To clean the touch pad

Wipe lightly with a gauze or other dry, soft cloth.

To clean areas other than the LCD panel and touch pad

Wet a soft cloth with water or a diluted kitchen cleanser (neutral), wring the cloth out thoroughly, and wipe the dirty area gently. Using a detergent other than a neutral kitchen cleanser (e.g., a weak alkali cleanser) may adversely affect painted surfaces.

CAUTION

z Do not use benzene, thinner, or rubbing alcohol since it may adversely affect the surface causing discoloration, etc.

Do not use commercially-available household cleaners and cosmetics, as they may contain components harmful to the surface.

z Do not apply water or detergent directly to the computer, since liquid may enter inside of the computer and cause malfunction or damage.

If You Spill Water on the Keyboard

Note that repairs resulting from liquids being spilled on the computer are not free of charge, and not covered by warranty.

The keyboard on this computer incorporate a drain system (a moisture protection mechanism) that minimizes the amount of liquid reaching the inside of the computer even if water is spilled on the keyboard.

Any water that comes in contact with the keyboard is drained off through holes in the bottom of the computer, so that virtually no water is left inside the computer. However, this is not a guarantee against damage to the hard disk or other internal parts, or against the loss or deletion of data.

The drain system is incorporated into only the keyboard. It does not apply to any other components.

z If you spill water or any other liquid on the keyboard, even a small amount, be sure to perform the following steps.

Failure to perform these steps may result in damage to the computer. The drain system will not provide complete protection against water entering the computer.

1 Immediately turn off the computer, and remove the AC adaptor.

2 Wipe any water droplets off of the top of the keyboard using a soft, dry cloth.

3 Slowly lift up the computer, keeping it level, and wipe any water coming out of the holes on the bottom using a soft, dry cloth.

If the computer is tilted during this step, liquid may seep inside the computer resulting in damage.

4 Keeping the computer level, move the computer to a dry place.

If the computer is placed back on the wet surface, water may seep inside the computer from the bottom.

5 Remove the battery pack.

6 Be sure to contact your technical support office to have the computer checked for any malfunctions.
