You can provide power to the Nino in three ways: 1) the AC power
adapter, 2) the Nino rechargeable battery pack, or 3) AA batteries.
If connecting to AC power is not convenient and you would like to
try out your Nino immediately, you can install the AA batteries,
being careful to correctly align the positive and negative ends. Be
aware that data you enter may not be properly maintained until the
built-in backup battery is adequately recharged.
Philips recommends that you first install the rechargeable battery
pack and leave your Nino plugged in overnight. Follow these steps:
1
Open the door of the battery compartment.
2
Insert the rechargeable battery pack.
Only use the Nino rechargeable battery pack.

NINO OWNER’S GUIDE
Installing Windows CE Services
To prepare your PC for a “partnership” with your Nino, you need
to install Windows CE Services from the Microsoft CD.
N O T E If you will be connecting the Nino via a Remote Access
Server (RAS), if you run the Windows NT® operating system with a
service pack, or if you want to use the infrared connection to dock,
you need to follow the special installation instructions in the
Microsoft Palm-size PC User’s Guide .
Before you start, save the work on your PC and quit all programs.
If this is the first time you are installing Windows CE Services on
your PC, you may also need to use your Windows CD during the
process.
1
Insert the Desktop Software for Windows CE CD in your
CD-ROM drive.
The Windows CE Services Welcome screen appears automatically.
(If it doesn’t, select Run from the Start menu, type d:startup, where
d is the name of the drive with the Microsoft CD, and press Enter.)
The Installation Wizard presents welcome and licensing
information, asks you to fill in your name and company, and then
choose a setup.
NINO OWNER’S GUIDE

2
Click the Typical option and follow the on-screen instructions.
When you have installed the software, the Get Connected dialog
box appears:
3
Make sure the Nino is turned on and in the Nino dock.
Then click Start.
It takes a few moments for the software to locate your Nino and to
configure communication settings. When the process is finished,
the Mobile Devices window appears on your PC screen.
4
Wait a few moments until the New Partnership Wizard
appears.
(If Windows CE Services fails to detect your Nino, refer to the
section on communications settings in the Microsoft Palm-size
PC User’s Guide.)
12
NINO OWNER’S GUIDE
5
Use the New Partnership Wizard to establish the PC-Nino
partnership.
Fill in the device name and description (“Nino”). Leave the
“On Connect” option checked for synchronization. This will
synchronize your Nino each time it is connected.
6
A few moments after the partnership is established,
ActiveSync on your PC automatically starts the initial
synchronization process.
Information from desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook
is transferred to your Nino.
During this process you may see a screen asking you to
“Combine” or “Discard” information on the PC and the Nino.
Choose Combine.
When initial synchronization is successfully completed, your PC
desktop displays the Mobile Devices window with the message
“Connected, Up-to-date” in the lower right corner.
During installation, Windows CE Services places a Mobile Devices
shortcut on your desktop. (Mobile Devices also shows up as an
entry in My Computer.) For details about the Mobile Devices
program window, see the Microsoft Palm-size PC User’s Guide.
N O T E
To disconnect the Nino from the PC, take it out of the Nino Dock.
NINO OWNER’S GUIDE
13
About Synchronization
You can synchronize your Nino and your desktop PC to make sure
that both devices have the most up-to-date information.
Synchronization starts automatically when you put the Nino in
the Nino Dock (if you left the “Automatically synchronize upon
connecting” option checked when you established the Nino-PC
partnership). Exactly what gets synchronized depends on the
settings you choose from ActiveSync Options on the Tools menu in
the Mobile Devices window.
What can get synchronized?
Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks—Information stored in these
programs on your Nino is synchronized with Schedule+ or Outlook
on your desktop computer. The most recently modified
information, wherever it resides, replaces the older information.
Inbox Messages—Messages in Exchange or Outlook on your
desktop computer are copied to your Nino. Messages you created
on your Nino are stored in your Outbox and transferred to your
desktop for transmission.
Files—Files in NoteTaker and Voice Recorder on your Nino are
synchronized with files in the My Documents folder (Windows
95), or your Personal folder (Windows NT) on your PC.
Channel Information—The most recent information for the
channels you subscribe to on your PC is downloaded to your Nino.
(A “channel” is an Internet information service that automatically
sends out news, stock updates, or other information of interest.)
If you also receive channel information on your Nino, these two
sources are merged and only the most recent information appears
on the Nino.
Resolving conflicts
If an item such as a task or appointment has been modified on both
your desktop PC and your Nino, you’ll need to decide which version
you want to keep. You can do this automatically or manually. See the
Microsoft Palm-size PC User’s Guide for details.

Keeping your data safe
Your Nino comes with a non-removable, built-in lithium backup
battery that will maintain the integrity of your data in the absence
of other power sources. Note these important points:
■
You can check the status of the backup battery by tapping
Start > Settings > Power.
■
It may take a few days of normal usage before this backup battery
is fully recharged and appears as good. (It recharges when you
are plugged in to AC power or when you are running the Nino
on the rechargeable battery pack or AA batteries.)
■
To prevent the backup battery from running down and failing to
protect your data, do not leave the Nino for an extended period
of time without AA batteries or the rechargeable battery pack
installed, or without a connection to AC power.
■
When AA batteries become low, replace them promptly. If the
rechargeable battery pack is low, recharge it as soon as possible.
■
Don’t use NiCad rechargeable batteries with your Nino.
Only use the Nino rechargeable battery pack or AA batteries.
Using a modem
You can use your Nino and a U.S. Nino Modem Click-on or a
European Telephone Connectivity Kit (TCK) to connect to:
■
An Internet Service Provider (ISP)
■
A corporate network through a Remote Access Server (RAS)
connection
■
A remote desktop computer via RAS
■
A remote desktop computer via dial-up connection
Some U.S. models of the Nino include the Nino U.S. Modem
Click-on.
For your convenience, settings information about many ISPs is
maintained at the Nino Web site at http://nino.philips.com.

Adding a Data Storage Card
To install a CompactFlash data storage card in your Nino, follow

24
Identify the connecting edge of the card. (There may be an
arrow symbol on the card to help you do this.)
NINO OWNER’S GUIDE
3
Insert the CompactFlash card.
The ridge on the back edge of the card should be facing up.
(This allows you to easily remove the card when you need to.)
4
Close the door.
You now have the option of saving data to the card. In NoteTaker,
for example, create a new note and then choose Save As from the
File menu. Tap Option and then the location arrow to choose the
storage card.

Taking Care of Your Nino
General handling
Avoid dropping the Nino. Keep it away from extremes of hot or cold.
Screen care
Use only the Nino stylus to write or tap on the Nino screen. Using a
pen or other sharply pointed object can cause damage. Protect the
screen from scratches by keeping the unit in the pouch provided.
Battery management
Conserve battery life by taking these steps:
■
Recharge the batteries while you’re on the road by plugging in
the Nino with the AC adapter whenever circumstances permit.
■
Change your Nino’s default shut-off time when running on
batteries. The default is three minutes. Choose Power from the
Settings menu and then choose the Power Off tab.
■
Set the backlight feature to turn off automatically when running
on battery power. Choose Display from the Settings menu.
■
Disable sounds you don’t need to hear. Choose Volume &
Sounds from the Settings menu.
Memory and task management
Manage the amount of memory allocated to programs and storage.
Choose System from the Settings menu and then choose the
Memory tab. You can end a task (program), or switch to a different
task from the Task Manager tab.
Cleaning and maintenance
Clean your Nino casing with a damp, soft cloth. To clean the
screen, turn off the unit and then use a damp cloth or a moistened
pad designed specifically for computer monitor screens.
And finally...
For worry-free use of your Nino, dock it whenever you’re near your
PC. This recharges the batteries (if your Nino Dock is plugged in to
AC power), and synchronizes information with your PC. Docking
frequently protects your data.

Troubleshooting
I can’t see anything on the Nino screen.
Make sure the unit is on and adjust the screen contrast.
Tapping or using other software controls doesn’t
seem to work.
If smARTwriter is active, make it inactive by tapping its icon in the
icon tray.
I get a screen message saying the backup battery is
running low and I should replace it.
The rechargeable backup battery on the Nino is not removable.
Dock the Nino or plug it in with the AC adapter in order to
recharge the backup battery.
Tapping the screen doesn’t seem to work or produces
unexpected results.
You may need to recalibrate the Nino. Hold down the Exit button,
and then press the Action button to display the Calibration screen.
The Nino screen is frozen and nothing happens when
I tap the screen or press the Quick Start buttons.
Using the end of a paperclip, press the Soft Reset button on the
back of the unit. This restarts the Nino without erasing any stored
information.
Even after pressing the Soft Reset button, the screen
is still frozen.
Remove the batteries. Plug in the Nino to AC power and then use
the end of a paperclip to press the Soft Reset button on the back of
the unit.
My battery doesn’t last long enough.
See Battery Management in the previous section of this guide.
If you can’t find an answer to your problem here, in the Microsoft
Palm-size PC User’s Guide, from on-line Help, or at the Nino or
Microsoft Windows CE Web sites, call Philips for telephone
support. Refer to the Philip’s Support Card that comes with your
Nino for the phone number nearest your location.
