Application Launch/Media Player
Buttons
To change an application associated with one of
the buttons, click on the tab for the button you
would like to reconfigure. Click on the Browse
button. Scroll down to the application you want
to associate with the buttons, click on the
application you wish to launch with this button,
and then click Open. Click OK, and the button
will now launch the new application.
When Application mode is active, pressing any
of the four application buttons (A, B, Internet, or
Mail) will launch a user-defined application. When
Media mode is selected, the buttons operate the
media player.
One of the buttons (labelled “www”) may be
preconfigured to launch your default Internet
browser. In order to reconfigure it to launch a
different program, follow these easy steps:
Configuring the Application Panel
1. Click on the Internet tab of the application
panel utility. Click on the down-arrow in the
Specify the button action: field. Select Start
Other Program from the dropdown list.
When you press the Mode button, the indicator
light will change. If Application mode is selected,
the “app” indicator will be lit; if Media mode is
selected, the “player” button will be lit.
When you start your system, the LifeBook
Application Panel is automatically activated. As
an application launcher, the LifeBook Application
Panel is very flexible, giving you a variety of
options. To set up the panel to best suit your
needs, the Application Panel Setup utility will
quickly and easily help you make the most of this
valuable feature.
To configure your LifeBook Application Panel
with the Application Panel Setup utility:
1. Click on [Start] -> Control Panel. (Note that
depending upon the View you are using, you
may need to click Settings before clicking
Control Panel).
2. Double-click on Application Panel. The
Application Panel Setup utility will appear.
The utility window has tabs that correspond to
the application buttons on the application panel.
When you receive your notebook, these buttons
are pre-configured to launch specific programs.
The tabs in Application Panel Setup may not
be in the same order as the buttons on your
LifeBook notebook. Please select the tab you
wish to change carefully.
2. Click on the Browse button.
3. Scroll down the list of applications, and click
on the application you wish to launch with
this button. Click on Open.
4. Click OK.
The button will now launch the new application.
If you want to return to launching your default
Internet browser with this button, you need only
click on “Default Internet Browser” from the
dropdown list. Be aware that you will erase the
settings for the other application. If you wish to
go back to launching the other application from
this button, you will need to reconfigure it as
described above.
The E-mail tab can be modified in the same
manner as the Internet tab.
At the bottom of each application setup page are
two selectable options. The first will enable/
disable the button when your LifeBook notebook
is in Standby mode, and the second will enable/
disable the button when your LifeBook notebook
is in the pseudo-off state. You can enable/disable
either or both of these functions simply by clicking
on the option.

When you have finished with Application Panel
utility, click on OK, and the new settings will take
effect. You can reconfigure your LifeBook
Application Panel as often as you like.
Using the Media Player
The media player allows you to use your LifeBook
notebook’s optical drive as an audio media player.
If you shut down from Windows while the
media player is playing an audio CD, it
will stop.
You cannot go into Suspend Mode or
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) Mode while
the media player is playing a CD.
The media player will only play when the
system is powered on.
There is no configuration required for media
player operation. The buttons are pre-configured
to work like a normal media player. When the
selector switch is in the bottom position, the
buttons will operate as follows:
• Stop/Eject: This is the first button below the
Mode button. Press it once to stop an audio
CD that is playing. Press it twice to eject the
audio CD.
• Play/Pause: This is the second button below
the Mode button. Press this button to start
playing an audio CD starting at Track 1. While
the audio CD is playing, press it to pause.
Press it again to continue.
If you press the play button and nothing
happens, you either have the Selector
switch locked, there is no audio CD in the
media player drive, you have a CD other
than an audio CD in the drive, or system
is not powered on.
Because of the Windows CD autoinsertion function, audio CDs will start
playing immediately after they are
inserted if your LifeBook notebook is on.
This will not happen if you are using the
media player in Suspend or Pseudo-off
modes.
• Fast Backward: This is the third button below
the Mode button. Press this button once to skip
one track back.
• Fast Forward: This is the bottom button. Press
this button once to skip forward one track.
Desktop Control Panel
Your LifeBook notebook includes a desktop
control panel for your notebook’s desktop that
you can use at any time. You may use this panel
to operate the media player when you have the
Selector switch in the Application position or Lock
mode.

Connecting an External Audio
Device
Your TV Tuner and Instant MyMedia will work “outof-the-box”, but if you want to connect your
notebook to an external device, follow the
instructions in this section.
You can listen to media from an external device
such as an external CD player by connecting it
to your notebook. In order to connect an audio
device, you will first need to purchase a standard
RCA cable harness (red/white, max 1Vrms), as
shown in Figure 7.
If you are connecting external devices to your
notebook, be sure to read the instructions that
accompany them before connecting them.
The following external devices can be connected
to the notebook to work with Instant MyMedia:
• Image devices such as video decks and video
cameras. These can be connected either with
composite cables or S-Video cables.
• Audio devices can be connected via the video
audio input jack on the notebook.
Connecting an Antenna
In order to receive television signals, you must
first hook up an antenna to your notebook. An
RF antenna adapter was included with the
notebook for hooking up the antenna. Note that
this requires an antenna (either cable or
standalone) with a coaxial connection.
To connect the audio cable:
1. Connect the cable to the audio output jacks
on the external device by matching the
colors of the cable with the colors of the
jacks.
2. Connect the cable to the audio input jacks
on the notebook by matching the colors of
the cable with the colors of the jacks (See
Figure 8).

LITHIUM ION BATTERY
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery
that provides power for operating your notebook
when no external power source is available. The
battery is durable and long lasting, but should
not be exposed to extreme temperatures, high
voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may
become shorter if it is used under the following
conditions:
• The operating temperature range of the
Lithium ion battery is 5°C to 30°C. If the battery
is used outside these temperature ranges,
charging efficiency will be greatly reduced and
the likelihood of battery deterioration will
greatly increase. The Battery Charging
indicator on the Status Indicator Panel will flash
orange when you try to charge a battery that
is outside its operating temperature range.
• When using a high current device such as a
modem, DVD, or hard drive, using the AC
adapter will conserve your battery life.
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features,
power management settings, battery
condition and other customer
preferences. Media player drive or hard
drive usage may also have a significant
impact on battery life. The batter y
charging capacity is reduced as the
battery ages. If your battery is running low
quickly, you should replace it with a new
one.
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter, or your LifeBook notebook
itself. It may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current
into the bad battery.
Under federal, state, or local law, it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting
them in the trash. Please take care of our
environment and dispose of batteries
properly. Check with your local
government authority for details regarding
recycling or disposing of old batteries.
Recharging the Batteries
If you want to know the charge condition of the
primary Lithium ion battery, check the Battery
Level indicator located on the Status Indicator
panel. The indicator changes as the battery level
changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally
using the AC adapter. To recharge the battery,
make sure the battery is installed in your
notebook and connect the AC adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging indicator
and the percentage charge is indicated by
the Battery Level icon on the Status Indicator
Panel.
It is not necessary to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. Charge times will
be much longer if your notebook is in use while
the battery is charging. If you want to charge the
battery more quickly, put your notebook into
Suspend mode, or turn it off while the adapter is
charging the battery.
Using heavy current devices such as a
modem or frequent media player accesses
may prevent charging completely.

Low Battery State
Replacing the Battery
When the battery is running low, a low battery
notification message will appear. If you do not
respond to the low battery message, the batteries
will continue to discharge until they are too low
to operate. When this happens, your LifeBook
notebook will go into Suspend mode. There is
no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
With the purchase of an additional battery, you
can have a fully charged spare to swap with one
that is not charged. (Figure 5-1)
1. Have a charged battery ready to install.
2. Shut down your LifeBook notebook and
disconnect the AC adapter.
3. Press the battery release latches while lifting
the battery.
4. Remove the battery from the bay.
Once the low battery notification message
appears, you need to either plug in an
AC power adapter, or save all your active
data, power down your system, and install
a charged battery as soon as possible.
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power source
active. If you remove all power sources
while your LifeBook notebook is in
Suspend mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
Once your LifeBook notebook battery goes dead,
you will be unable to resume operation until you
provide a source of power either from an adapter
or a charged battery. Once you have provided
power, you will need to press the Power/Suspend/
Resume button to resume operation. If your
battery dies, your data will be lost if a power
source is not provided promptly. Once you
provide power, you can continue to use your
LifeBook notebook while an adapter is charging
the battery.
5. Insert the new battery into the bay. The pins
will automatically align with the connector.
6. Press the battery down until the battery
release latches snap into place.
7. Plug in the AC adapter and turn the power
on.

Figure 5-1. Replacing the Battery
Damaged Batteries
The Battery Level indicator displays the operating
level available in that battery. If this icon is red
and blinking, it means that the battery is damaged
and must be replaced so it does not damage any
other parts of your notebook.
If the Lithium ion battery connector is not fully
seated, you may not be able to use your
LifeBook notebook or charge your battery.

MEMORY STICK/SECURE
DIGITAL MEDIA
Your LifeBook notebook supports Memory Stick/
Memory Stick Pro and Secure Digital (SD) cards,
on which you can store and transfer data to and
from a variety of digital devices. These cards use
flash memory architecture, which means they
don’t need a power source to retain data.
Memory Stick is a flash memory technology
developed by Sony Electronics. Memory Stick
allows you to record, transfer and share digital
content, such as digital pictures, movies, music,
voice, and computer data and applications.
Secure Digital (SD) Cards are very similar to
Memory Sticks, but they are shorter. Like the
Memory Stick, SD Cards allow portable storage
among a variety of devices, such as cell phones,
GPS systems, digital cameras, and PDAs. SD
Cards transfer data quickly, with low battery
consumption. Like the memory stick, it uses flash
memory architecture.

1. Unlock the card from the slot by pressing the
eject button associated with the slot in which
the card is located. When pressed, the button
will pop out.
2. Firmly press the button again until it is flush
with the notebook. This will eject the card
slightly out of the slot allowing you to remove
the card.

Caring your Fujitsu notebook
• Always disconnect the power by pulling the
plug, not the cord.
• Clean your LifeBook notebook with a damp,
lint-free cloth. Do not use abrasives or solvents.
• Use a soft cloth such as a lens cleaning cloth

Caring for your Batteries
Caring for your Media
(DVD/CD/CD-R/DVD+/-R/DVD+/-RW)
• Always handle batteries carefully.
• Do not short-circuit the battery terminals (that
is, do not touch both terminals with a metal
object). Do not carry loose batteries in a pocket
or purse where they may mix with coins, keys,
or other metal objects. Doing so may cause
an explosion or fire.
Media discs are precision devices and will
function reliably if given reasonable care.
• Always store your media disc in its case when
it is not in use.
• Always handle discs by the edges and avoid
touching the surface.
• Do not drop, puncture, disassemble, mutilate
or incinerate the battery.
• Avoid storing any media discs in extreme
temperatures.
• Recharge batteries only as described in this
manual and only in ventilated areas.
• Do not bend media discs or set heavy objects
on them.
• Do not leave batteries in hot locations for more
than a day or two. Intense heat can shorten
battery life.
• Do not spill liquids on media discs.
• Do not leave a battery in storage for longer
than 6 months without recharging it.
• Do not scratch media discs.
• Do not put a label on media discs.
• Do not get dust on media discs.
• Never write on the label surface with a ballpoint
pen or pencil. Always use a felt pen.
Increasing Battery Life
• Power your LifeBook notebook with the AC
adapter whenever possible.
• If your LifeBook notebook is running on battery
power all day, connect it to the AC adapter
overnight to recharge the battery.
• Keep brightness to the lowest level
comfortable.
• Set the power management for maximum
battery life.
• If a media disc is subjected to a sudden change
in temperature, cold to warm condensation
may form on the surface. Wipe the moisture
off with a clean, soft, lint free cloth and let it
dry at room temperature. DO NOT use a hair
dryer or heater to dry media discs.
• If a disc is dirty, use only a DVD/CD cleaner or
wipe it with a clean, soft, lint free cloth starting
from the inner edge and wiping to the outer
edge.
• Put your LifeBook notebook in Suspend mode
when it is turned on and you are not actually
using it.
• Limit your media drive access.
• Disable the media player auto inser t
notification function.
• Always use fully charged batteries.
• Eject PCMCIA cards when not in use.
