Notes About the Monitor
• Monitors and electronic viewfinders are constructed with extremely
high precision; at least 99.99% of pixels are effective, with no more than
0.01% being missing or defective. Hence while these displays may
contain pixels that are always lit (white, red, blue, or green) or always off
(black), this is not a malfunction and has no effect on images recorded
with the device.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim
or flicker, contact your Nikon-authorized service representative.

Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of
Canada (IC)
Declaration of Conformity

device must accept any interference, including interference that may

FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with
any other antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems
are associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof,
however, that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low
power wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in
the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can
produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that
does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health
effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological
effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by
additional research.
COOLPIX S9600, which is equipped with a DW092 (FCC ID: EW4DW092/
IC ID: 4634A-3149EC) Wireless LAN Module, has been tested and found to
comply with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an
uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF)
Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC
radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. Please refer to the SAR test report
that was uploaded to FCC website.
