COMMON QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Tell me more about the batteries. (HC-4000/HC-4100)
You must install both the two main batteries (alkaline) as well as the lithium
backup battery. The main batteries drive the unit while the backup battery
serves as the backup in case the main batteries become depleted. You can
also use the AC adaptor included in the optional Docking Station Kit for AC
power (which will not work if the main batteries are depleted).
How long will the batteries last?
Battery life varies from user to user. A number of factors will affect the
battery life, including how much the unit is used. The battery life is rated at
24 hours of continuous display of the HC-4000/HC-4100. (or 6 hours for the
HC-4500 with a fully charged battery pack.)
You can find out the battery level by using Power in the Control Panel. Also,
icon appears on the task bar, you can find out the battery level by
double-tapping the icon.
How can I use the internal fax/modem to fax from my unit?
You can fax from virtually any standard analog phone line. How do you find
out if a line is analog or otherwise? The basic rule to follow is that if you
can use a standard fax machine on the phone line, then it is analog and can
be used with the unit.
Use the supplied modular phone cable to connect your unit to the phone
line. Before sending faxes, you need to install fax software.
Can I use the unit for Internet access?
You can connect to an Internet service provider and browse the World Wide
Web or send/receive e-mail.
You need to set up a dial-up connection to your Internet service provider.
