2.3. Never Carry Out Repairs Yourself
WARNING!
Never try to open or repair the device yourself. There is a
risk of electric shock.
• If there is a fault, contact the MEDION Help Desk or other suitable
specialist workshop.
2.4. Data Backup
ATTENTION!
Back up your data on external storage media after each
update. We do not accept any liability for claims for
compensation arising from loss of data or any consequential
loss or damage.
2.5. Power Supply
• Do not open the housing of the mains adapter. Opening the
housing may cause death by electrical shock. The housing contains
no parts requiring maintenance.
• The mains adapter should only be operated using earthed sockets
with AC 100-240V~, 50/60 Hz. If you are not certain of the electrical
supply at the installation location, ask the power supplier.
• The socket must be located near the PC and must be easily
accessible.
• Use the enclosed mains adapter with the enclosed mains
connection cable only.
• The adapter possesses an on/off switch. If the switch is on OFF (0),
no power is re-quired and the PC will not be supplied with power.
• For additional safety, we recommend the use of an overvoltage
protector, in order to protect your PC from damage by voltage
peaks or lightning carried through the power network.
• If you wish to separate the mains adapter from the power network,
first pull the plug out of the socket and then pull the plug on the
PC. Pulling the plugs in the wrong order may damage the mains
adapter or the PC. When pulling the plug, hold the plug itself.
Never pull on the cord.

4. Setting Up of the PC
You can freely adjust the monitor up and downwards so you can use it
at different angles.
4.1. Setup Location
• Keep your PC and all connected devices away from moisture and
avoid dust, heat and direct sunlight. Non-compliance with these
instructions can lead to faults or damage to the PC.
• Do not use the PC outdoors because external elements, such as
rain, snow, etc., could damage it.
• Set up and operate all components on a stable, level and vibration-free surface to prevent the PC from falling down.
• Do not operate the PC or power adaptor for long periods on your
lap or any other body part as the heat dissipation on the underside
can result in uncomfortable overheating.
4.2. Environmental Requirements
• The PC can be operated at an ambient temperature of between
10° and 35°C (+41° and +95°F) and at a relative humidity of
between 30% and 80% (without condensation).
• When powered off, the PC can be stored at temperatures between
0° C and 50° C (+32° F and 122° F).
• Unplug the cable during thunderstorms and especially make sure
to remove the antenna cables, if present. We recommend the
use of a surge protector for additional safety, in order to protect
your PC from being damaged by power peaks or lightning strikes
through the power network.
• After transporting the PC, wait until the device has reached room
temperature before switching it on. Large changes in temperature
or fluctuations in humidity can cause moisture build up within the
PC due to condensation. This can cause an electrical short circuit.
• Keep the original packaging in the event the device needs to be
sent in the post.

4.3. Ergonomics
PLEASE NOTE!
Avoid dazzle, reflections and strong bright-dark contrast in order to
protect your eyes.
The PC should never be placed next to a window because this is the brightest part
of the room in daylight. This brightness can make it more difficult for the eyes to
adjust to the darker display. The PC should always be positioned so that the
direction of vision is parallel to the window front.
Setting up the PC with your back to the window is incorrect as reflections from the
bright window on the screen will then be unavoidable. A position looking onto the
window is also incorrect as the contrast between the dark screen and the bright
daylight can cause problems for the eyes to adjust and result in problems.
The parallel line of vision should also be maintained in relation to artificial lighting
equipment.
In other words, the same criteria and principles apply where the workspace is
illuminated with artificial light. Where space restrictions make it impossible to set
up the screen as described, then correct positioning (rotating, tilting) of the
PC/screen can prevent dazzling, reflections and excessive bright-dark contrast, etc.
In many cases, an improvement can also be achieved by using slats or vertical blinds
on the windows, partition walls or by changing the artificial lighting equipment.
5. Connecting
PLEASE NOTE!
The devices listed are not necessarily included with your PC.
All the connections listed are optional and will not inevitably be
available on your PC.

5.1. Cabling
Please follow the instructions below in order to correctly connect
your PC:
• Arrange cables in such a way that no one can tread on or trip over
them.
• Do not place objects on the cables.
• Do not apply force when connecting cables and plugs and make
sure that connectors are the right way round.
• When you disconnect a cable from your device, pull it out by
holding the plug and not the cable
• In order to prevent short-circuits and cable breaks, do not crush or
bend cables
5.2. Connecting a Microphone
Product Diagram position: D
 You can use the pink socket to connect a microphone with a 3.5 mm mono jack
plug.
 Position the microphone in such a way that it does not point directly at the
speakers. If you hear feedback, characterised by loud whistling noises, reposition
the microphone until the sound stops.

Connecting USB Devices
Product Diagram position: A, B
ATTENTION!
Connect your USB devices after initial set-up of your new PC.
This will prevent unnecessary confusion during installation.
These devices can generally be connected during operation.
Read the manual for your peripheral device first.
•
The voltage outputs of your PC for USB are protected by a fuse (limited power
source according to EN60950). This ensures that a malfunction of the PC will not
damage the peripheral devices connected to the respective jacks.
You have a choice of several connection sockets. It does not matter which you usen.
PLEASE NOTE!
Take care that the connector and the socket fit exactly to avoid
damaging the contacts. Because of its asymmetric form the plug only
fits into the socket in one position.
 If you wish to use a printer, scanner or other device with a USB port, connect the
cable to the USB socket on your PC.
PLEASE NOTE!
Connect your devices always to the same port otherwise your operating
system will give a new ID and asks for driver installation.

5.3. Connecting a Monitor
Product Diagram position: P
Your PC is equipped with a VGA connection.
PLEASE NOTE!
If your monitor has multiple inputs (e.g. VGA and DVI), only ever connect
one data cable at a time (to prevent signal mapping problems).
To prevent damage to the contacts, ensure that the plug and socket fit
together exactly. Due to its asymmetric shape, the plug will only fit into

9. The Hard Drive
The hard drive is your main memory medium and combines high storage
capacity with rapid data access. Your PC is supplied with an OEM version** of the
Microsoft Windows®8 operating system which supports all of the PC’s performance
features. We have configured your PC’s hard drive so that you will be able to work
with it optimally without having to install any additional drivers yourself. The
Windows®8 operating system requires part of the capacity to manage the hard drive
therefore the hard drive’s full capacity is not available. This explains any
differences between the BIOS display and the operating system display. The PC’s
operating system, other applications and security data are located on the hard drive
meaning that the full capacity is already reduced.
The first partition (C:\) contains the operating system, the applications and the
“Documents” folder for the configured user.
The second partition (D:\) is used for the data backup and also contains drivers
(D:\Drivers) and utilities (D:\Tools) for your PC.
ATTENTION!
The startup files for system restoration “„Resetting the PC to its
Factory Settings“) and the Windows® 8 installation files are
located in
non-rewritable partitions. These partitions cannot be deleted.

10. The Optical Drive
Product Diagram position: E, F
10.1. Loading and Removing a Disc
Unlike optical drives on a desktop PC, the PC uses a mount to hold the disc.
ATTENTION!
Do not use scratched, broken, dirty or poor quality discs. The
high speeds in the drive can cause these to break destroying
your data and damaging your device. Inspect discs
carefully before inserting them. If damage or dirt is visible, do
not use the disc. Damage caused by faulty media is not covered
under warranty and repairs will be chargeable.
Incorrectly positioning the disc in the mount can cause it to be
damaged when closing the drive drawer.
10.1.1. Loading a Disc
 With the device switched on, press the eject button on the optical drive (F) to
open the drawer.
 Pull the tray out completely with care.
 Place the disc on the tray so that it lays flat with the label facing forward. push
the disc right onto the locking mechanism so that it can lock in position.
ATTENTION!
The disc can be damaged when the drive drawer is pushed in, if
it has not been positioned on the support correctly.
 Push the tray back into the optical drive carefully.
 The ‘E’ drive letter will have been allocated to your optical drive in the delivery
status. You will have easy access to your files on your disks with Windows
Explorer (Computer). Start the Computer Help Program by means of the
Desktop link or by pressing the Windows key and the ‘E’ key at the same time.
ATTENTION!
While the PC is accessing the optical drive the media
activity indicator is lit. Do not try to remove the disc from the

10.1.2. Removing the Disc
 To remove the disc, press the eject button again.
 Take the disc out and place it in a CD case.
 Close the drive again.
10.1.3. Emergency Release of a Blocked Disc
In the event of the drawer no longer opening automatically, it can be opened
manually providing your device has an emergency eject hole.
 Exit Windows® 8 and switch off the PC.
 Insert a long pointed object (e.g. straightened paperclip) into the emergency
release until you feel some resistance.
 A slight push now opens the drawer.
 Remove the disc and restart the PC.
10.2. Playing/Reading Discs
Your optical drive is capable of playing audio CDs, DVD films or data CDs/DVDs.
Once a disc has been loaded, a dialogue box opens containing various playback
options. Normally, there will be a number of different options available.
If the dialogue box does not open, there is always the option of accessing the
optical drive via Explorer.
10.3. Regional Playback Information for DVDs
Playback of DVD film titles includes decoding MPEG2 video, digital AC3 audio data
and decoding CSS-protected content. CSS (sometimes also referred to as Copy
Guard) is the name of a data protection program used by the film industry to
protect against illegal copying.
Among the many controls for CSS licensees, the most important of the playback
restrictions involve country specific content.
To make it easier to create geographically separate film releases, DVD titles are
coded for specific regions. Copyright laws required that each DVD film be limited to
a specific region (usually the region where it is sold).
DVD film versions can be published in multiple regions but CSS rules require that
each CSS decoder system may only be used for one region.
PLEASE NOTE!
The region setting can be changed up to five times via the viewing
software before the last setting becomes permanent. If you then wish
to change the region setting again, this must be carried out by the
manufacturer. Any shipping and configuration costs must be borne by
the user.

This section only concerns devices supplied with a CD-RW, a combination CD/DVD
read drive or a DVD-RW drive. First some information about blank discs
10.4.1. Blank CDs and DVDs
Normal CDs are pressed by a glass master and then sealed. With blank discs,
digital information is burned onto them using the drive’s laser. They are therefore
more sensitive then conventional discs.
Because of this, it is essential to avoid, particularly in the case of unused blanks:
• exposure to direct sunlight (UVA/UVB radiation)
• scratches and damage
• extreme temperatures

14. Network Operation
14.1. What is a Network?
We talk about a network when multiple computers are directly connected to one
another. This allows users to transfer information and data with one another and to
share their resources (printers and drives).
Here are a few concrete examples:
• In an office, messages are exchanged by email and appointments are managed
centrally.
• Users share one printer on the network and back up their data to a central
computer (server).
• Two or more computers are connected to one another to play network games or
exchange data.
14.2. Wireless LAN (Wireless Network)
Wireless LAN is an optional feature. This function enables you to establish a network
connection to a corresponding remote station. Please read about the necessary
requirements.
The wireless LAN function is enabled and disabled via the Windows® 8 menu and is
activated by default.
ATTENTION!
Do not operate the WLAN function in locations (e.g.: hospitals,
planes, etc.) where there is sensitive equipment. Do not switch
the device unless you are sure it will cause no interference.

14.2.1. Requirements
A so called WLAN access point may be used as a remote station. A WLAN access
point is a radio transmitting device that communicates with your PC and controls
access to the connected network.
WLAN access points are frequently found in large offices, airports, train stations, universities or Internet cafés. They provide access to particular services and networks or
to the Internet.
Access permissions are generally necessary and often result in usage charges.
Access points often have built-in DSL modems. These so called routers establish the
connection to the existing DSL Internet connection and the wireless LAN.
A connection can also be established to another end device with wireless LAN
functionality without an access point. Without a router, however, the network is
restricted to those devices directly connected to it.
The wireless network connection works in accordance with the IEEE 802.11n**
standard and is compatible with the IEEE 802.11b/g standard.
If encryption is used for the transfer, the same procedure must be used for all
devices. Encryption is a procedure to protect the network from unauthorised access.
The transfer speed can vary depending on the distance and the number of users
accessing the remote station.
15. The Universal Serial Bus Port
Product Diagram position: A, B
PLEASE NOTE!
Devices connected directly to the USB bus should not draw more than
500 mA. The voltage output is protected by a fuse (Limited Power
Source according to EN 60950). Should the devices need more power
than this, it will be necessary to provide a hub (distributor / booster).
The universal serial bus (USB 1.1 and USB 2.0) is a standard for connecting input
devices, scanners and other peripherals. Up to 127 devices can be connected to the
USB ports via a single cable.
The USB 3.0 ports are fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1.
PLEASE NOTE!
Where possible, always connect your USB devices to the same port that
they were originally installed on. Otherwise they will be assigned a new
ID and the drivers will need to be reinstalled.
** To make use of the full performance, a WLAN router compatible with the 802.11n
standard is required.

the taskbar, so that you can always open it with a single click. You can also rearrange
the icons on the taskbar by simply clicking on them and dragging them to the
desired position. Move the mouse pointer over the icons and thumbnails of each
file or each open window and that program will be displayed. If you move the
mouse pointer over the thumbnail, a full screen preview of the window in question
appears. When you move the mouse pointer away from the thumbnail again, the
full screen preview closes.
Jump Lists
Jump lists offer a practical way of calling up recently opened files. To display the
recently used files, simply right-click on the application icon in the taskbar. Thus if
you right-click on the Word icon, the recently used Word documents are displayed.
You can also easily place other files you wish to have easily to hand in the jump list
so that they are always displayed. This allows you to access documents that you use
frequently in just a few mouse clicks.
The jump lists for certain programs such as Windows® 8 Media Player can be
populated in advance with frequently used commands. Thus, for example, you will
see options to play all music or to reopen the last playlist in the jump list for Windows® 8 Media Player.
The frequently visited and last visited websites are displayed in the jump list for
Internet Explorer. This therefore allows you to quickly access commands for certain
programs that could previously only be called up from the program itself, such as
the command to compose a new email message.
Improved Desktop
Windows® 8 simplifies working with windows on the desktop. You therefore have
more intuitive options for opening and closing, changing sizes and rearranging.
Windows® 8 makes completing everyday tasks even simpler. The locking function
(snaps) makes it easier to compare two open windows, for example. You do not
need to manually adjust the size of the opened windows to make a comparison.
Simply drag the window to one of the screen margins using the mouse and it will fill
half of the screen.
Click the window’s title bar, “shake” it and all other opened windows are displayed
as icons on the task bar. “Shake” the window once more and the other windows are
displayed again.

Improved Device Management
Windows® 8 allows you to connect, manage and use all devices via the central
“Devices” function.
All devices are shown in a central location.
With the new “Device Stage” technology, however, Windows® 8 goes one step
further with device management. Device Stage helps you to use all compatible
devices that are connected to the computer. Thanks to Device Stage you can now
display the device status and perform frequently used commands within a single
window. Here you will even find images of the devices so you can easily see which
devices are connected. The device manufacturers can even adjust Device Stage. For
example, if your camera manufacturer releases an updated version of Device Stage,
you can see details such as the number of photos on the camera and get links to
useful information when you connect the camera to your PC.
HomeGroup
With home network groups, a Windows® 8 function, connecting home computers
becomes child’s play. A home network group is set up automatically when you
connect the first PC running Windows® 8 to the home network. Adding
additional PC’s running Windows® 8 to the home network group can be done very
quickly. You can specify precisely what should be shared on each PC with all
other PCs in the home network group. Sharing files on the various home PCs – and
on many other devices – is then as easy as if all the data were located on a single
hard drive. Thus, you can save digital photos on the computer in the study and then
access them easily on a PC in any other room. Similarly, the printer in the study is
automatically shared among all PCs in the house once they are part of the home
network group.
16.4. Overview
The greatest innovation with Windows® 8 is the Start screen.

17.3. Resetting the PC to its Factory Settings
In the event of problems with the installation or other software problems which
make it necessary to reinstall the software, Windows® 8 offers three options for
reinstalling Windows® 8 on your PC.
First ensure that you have backed up all important data
and programs.
17.3.1. Running System Restore
 After restarting, press the F11 key or start up the PC with the F11 key held down
to launch PowerRecover.
or
 Click the PowerRecover Windows® 8 desktop app to run the program from the
Windows® 8 desktop.
You will be offered 3 possible options:
− Burn Drivers and Tools to an Optical disc
Create a support disc
− Refresh your PC without affecting your files
Update your PC without deleting your data.
− Restore
Choose between two recovery options:
● Restore to HDD – no backup of user data
All data on the PC will be permanently deleted.
The factory settings will be restored.
● Restore to HDD – with backed up user data
The factory settings will be restored and all user data under C:\USER will
be backed up.
PLEASE NOTE!
Always perform any type of recovery using mains power.
ATTENTION!
The recovery process takes a long time when you select the
option to back up user data. Only the data located in the
folder C:\USER will be backed up. All other data will be deleted.
It is therefore important to perform regular data backups to
external data media. We do not accept any liability for claims
for compensation arising from the loss of data or any
consequential damages incurred.
 Click Next and follow the on screen instructions to restore the factory settings.

17.5. Kaspersky Internet Security
Kaspersky Internet Security is a comprehensive tool to protect your data. The use
of it not only offers you full protection against viruses, but also against spam and
attacks against your network. Further components of the software will protect your
computer against threats and phishing attacks unknown up to now and allows the
access to the Internet to be restricted sensibly. Full protection will cover all areas of
data transfers and exchanges.
Kaspersky Internet Security is already installed, so that additional installation
will not be necessary. If you nevertheless have to carry out an installation (e.g.
after system restoration), you will find the software package on the Application &
Support disc supplied with the machine.
Kaspersky Internet Security consists of the following security components:
• File Anti-Virus
File Anti-Virus will protect the file system of the computer against infection.
The components will be started when the operating system is started. They
will be permanently located in the working memory of the computer and will
check all the files that are opened, saved or started on your computer and all
the connected hard drives. Kaspersky Internet Security will intercept any attack
on a file and will check the respective file for known viruses. A file will then only
be released for use if it is virus-free or has been successfully disinfected by the
program.
• Mail Anti-Virus
Mail Anti-Virus will check the incoming and outgoing emails on your computer.
An email will only be delivered to the respective recipient if it does not contain
any dangerous elements.
• Web Filter / Child Protection
The Web Filter will block visits to dangerous web pages and will create a safe
working environment during Internet surfing in this way. Child protection allows
access to Internet resources and programs to be restricted flexibly for different
users of the computer depending on age.
PLEASE NOTE!
Kaspersky Internet Security will be activated automatically if the Internet
connection is active. Manual activation will not be necessary. Kaspersky
Internet Security will be deactivated automatically after a test period.
We recommend the acquisition of a licence in good time, to ensure the
optimum protection of your computer, for this reason.

information about this on the internet at: http://www.Kaspersky.com.
PLEASE NOTE!
The operating system and anti-virus software are automatically updated
when the first online connection is made. These processes usually take
a few minutes, during which time the operating speed of the computer
may be affected although this is only noticeable on initial start-up.

18. FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to install the discs supplied?
− No All programs are preinstalled. The discs are provided as backup copies
only.
Where can I find the necessary drivers for my PC?
− The drivers can be found in the second hard drive partition in the
Drivers and Tools folders.
What is Windows® 8 activation?
− You will find a relevant section in these operating instructions containing
detailed information on this topic.
How do I activate Windows® 8?
− Windows®8 is activated automatically as soon as an Internet connection is
established.
How do I activate Windows® 8 without an Internet connection?
− Windows® 8 can also be activated over the telephone. Follow the instructions
in the section “„Windows Activation“to activate Windows® 8 by telephone.
When is restoring factory settings recommended?
− This method should only be selected as a last resort. Read about the
alternatives in the System recovery section.
How do I perform a data backup?
− Perform a backup or backup synchronisation of selected data onto external
media to familiarise yourself with the technology. A backup is of no use if you
are unable to recover the data or if the medium is faulty or is no longer
available.
Why do I need to reinstall my USB device even though I have already done it?
− If the device is not operated on the same USB port as the one it was installed
in, it automatically receives a new identifier. The operating system then treats
it like a new device and tries to reinstall it.
− Use the installed driver or connect the device to the port on which it was
originally installed.

19.1. What To Do In Case of Hardware Problems
Malfunctions can sometimes have quite trivial causes, but they may also be the
result of defective components. We have included a brief troubleshooting guide
below which may help to solve any problems.
If these tips don’t do the trick, then we’ll be more than pleased to assist you. Just
give us a call!
19.2. Find The Cause
Start by carefully checking all the cable connections. If the indicator lamps are not
on, ensure that the PC and all peripheral devices are connected to the power
supply.
• If you are in battery mode, connect the PC to the mains adapter and check that
the battery is charged.
• If you wish to operate the PC using the mains adapter, disconnect the mains
adapter from the socket and connect an electrical appliance such as a lamp to
the same socket to test it. If the lamp does not work either, seek the advice of an
electrician.
• Turn off the PC and check all cable connections. If the PC is connected to
peripheral devices, check all cable connections. Do not swap around the cables
for the various devices, even if they look alike. The pin assignment within the
cables may be different. Once you have ensured that the device’s power supply
is functioning and all connections are intact, then switch the PC back on.

Before contacting your technology centre, however, prepare the following
information:
• Have you made any upgrades or modifications to the initial configuration?
• What peripheral devices do you use?
• What messages, if any, appear?
• What software were you using when the problem occurred?
• What steps have you already taken to try and rectify the problem?
19.4. Driver Support
The system has been thoroughly and successfully tested with the installed drivers
in our test laboratory. It is normal in the computer sector, however, for the drivers to
need updating from time to time. This is because there may be compatibility
problems with other components (programs, devices) which have not yet been
tested. You can find current drivers on the Internet at the following address:
http://www.medion.com
Please use the service address for the country where the device was purchased.

19.5. Transporting the PC
Please observe the following guidelines when transporting the PC:
• To avoid damage during transport, store the PC in its original packaging.
19.6. Maintenance
You can increase the lifespan of your PC with the following measures.
•
•
•
•
•
•
ATTENTION!
None of the parts inside the PC housing require cleaning or
maintenance.
Always unplug the device, disconnect all cables and remove the
battery before cleaning.
Clean the PC with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Dust or grease on the touchpad can affect its sensitivity. Remove
the dust or grease from the surface of the touch pad with a strip of
adhesive tape.
Over time, dust can collect inside the PC which then blocks the
vents. This can lead to an increase in the fan speed and, therefore,
also increase the operating volume of your PC. It can also lead to
overheating and malfunctions. Therefore, have the interior of the
PC cleaned by your service department or a specialist at regular
intervals.
Do not use solvents, corrosive or aerosol-based detergents to clean
the device.
Do not use CD-ROM cleaning discs or similar products that clean
the lens of the laser to clean your optical drive.
19.7. Upgrading/Modifying and Repair
• Upgrades and modifications to your PC should only be carried out
by qualified specialists. If you do not have the necessary
qualifications, have the work carried out by a qualified service
technician. Please contact your customer service department if you
have technical problems with your PC.
• If a repair must be carried out, please contact only our authorised
service partners.

19.7.1. Notes for Service Technicians
• Only service technicians may open up the PC housing or upgrade
or modify your PC.
• Use only original replacement parts.
• Before opening the housing, disconnect all power and connecting
cables and remove the battery. If the PC is not disconnected from
the power supply before being opened, there is a risk that
components could be damaged.
• Internal components of the PC may be damaged by
electrostatic discharge (ESD). Carry out repairs, as well as system
enhancements or modifications, at an ESD workplace. If such a
workplace is not available, wear an antistatic cuff or ensure you are
touching an earthed, metallic object. We will charge for any repairs
to damage caused by incorrect handling.
19.7.2. Information on Laser Radiation
• The PC can contain laser equipment classified as laser class 1 to
laser class 3b. The equipment meets the requirements for laser
class 1.
• By opening the housing of the optical drive, you will have access to
laser equipment classified up to laser class 3b.
The following should be observed when removing and/or opening
this laser equipment:
• The integrated optical drive contains no parts that require repair or
maintenance.
• Repairs to the optical drive should only be carried out by the
manufacturer.
• Do not look directly into the laser beam, even when using optical
instruments.
• Do not expose the laser beam. Avoid exposing your eyes or skin to
the laser beam – either directly or through scattered laser
radiation.

20.1. Handling Batteries
Batteries may contain combustible materials. If not handled
correctly batteries can leak, become very hot, ignite or even explode,
which could damage your appliance and/or your health.
It is very important that you follow the instructions below:
• Keep batteries away from children. Contact your doctor
immediately if a battery is swallowed.
• Never charge batteries (unless they are designed to be recharged).
• Never discharge the batteries by means of high power output.
• Never short-circuit the batteries.
• Never expose the batteries to excessive heat such as sunlight, fire
or similar.
• Do not dismantle or deform the batteries. You could injure your
hands or fingers or battery fluid could come into contact with your
eyes or skin. If this happens, rinse the affected areas immediately
with plenty of clean water and contact your doctor immediately.
• Avoid heavy impacts and vibrations. Always observe the correct
polarity. Make sure that the plus (+) and minus (−) poles are
correctly inserted to avoid short circuits.
• Do not mix up new and old batteries or different types of batteries.
This could cause your device to malfunction. In addition, the
weaker batteries would discharge too much.
• Remove spent batteries from the device immediately.
• Remove the batteries from the device if you do not intend to use it
for a long period of time.
• Replace all of the old batteries in a device with new batteries of the
same type.
• Cover the contacts of the batteries with sticky tape if you want to
store or dispose of them.
• Before inserting the batteries, check that the contacts in the device
and on the batteries are clean and, if necessary, clean them.
• Do not dispose of used batteries in the household rubbish! Please
protect our environment and dispose of batteries in the correct
manner. If you have any questions, please ask your dealer or our
customer service department.

Please be aware that if your product is capable of retaining user-generated data
(such as files stored on a computer hard drive, telephone numbers stored on a
mobile telephone, songs stored on a portable media player, games saved on a
games console or files stored on a USB memory stick) during the process of repair,
some or all of your stored data may be lost. We recommend you save this data
elsewhere prior to sending the product for repair.
