    6. CMOS-LSI circuits are used in the module, so guard against damage from electrostatic discharge. Be sure to wear a wrist or ankle ground when handling the module. TECRA A8 /Satellite Pro A120 Maintenance Manual (960-573) [CONFIDENTIAL]...

  • Page 350

    7. Do not expose the module to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet rays for long periods. 8. Do not store the module at temperatures below specifications. Cold can cause the liquid crystals to freeze, lose their elasticity or otherwise suffer damage. [CONFIDENTIAL] TECRA A8 /Satellite Pro A120 Maintenance Manual (960-573)

  • Page 351

    10. If you transport the module, do not use packing material that contains epoxy resin (amine) or silicon glue (alcohol or oxime). These materials can release gas that can damage the panel’s polarization. TECRA A8 /Satellite Pro A120 Maintenance Manual (960-573) [CONFIDENTIAL]...
