Notes on use Use your product only with the AC adapter supplied with your computer. To disconnect the unit completely from the main voltage, unplug the AC adapter. Make sure that the socket outlet is easily accessible. Do not place the unit in locations that are:

Extremely hot or cold Dusty or dirty Very humid Vibrating Subject to strong magnetic fields Sandy Subject to direct sunlight

Do not apply mechanical shock or drop the unit. Make sure that nothing metallic comes into contact with the metal parts of the unit.

If this happens, a short-circuit may occur and the unit may be damaged. Do not operate the unit with a damaged cord. Do not operate the unit if the unit itself has been dropped or damaged. Always keep the metal contacts clean. Do not disassemble or convert the unit. While in use, it is normal for the unit to get warm. Keep the unit away from TV or AM receivers, because it can disturb TV or AM

reception. USB, i.LINK, PC-card slot, Printer, DVI-D and MONITOR are not supplied with

Limited Power Sources if those connectors are provided. When connecting or disconnecting the unit, handle it carefully. When transporting the unit, prevent foreign objects from causing a malfunction by

using the battery pack, the connector covers and the supplied slot protectors if there is any.

When transporting your computer, be sure to remove the unit first. Moving your computer with the unit installed could cause the unit to fall off, resulting in personal injury, or damage to the unit or your computer.

If there are any dust or dirt particles on the docking station connector, your computer may not be able to detect the docking station when it is connected (even if the particles are invisible to the eye). If the connection seems to be poor, remove the AC power adaptor and battery, and wipe off the connector and the area around it on both the computer and the unit. Commercial air dusters are also effective for blowing away residual dust and dirt. Be careful not to damage the connectors while cleaning them.

On cleaning Clean the unit with a soft dry cloth or a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of solvent, such as alcohol or benzine, which may damage the finish.
