Page 19 of 35 Inserting a PCMCIA Card NOTE NEC recommends using an AC Adapter (optional on some models) when using PCMCIA cards, or modems. This will avoid potential data loss caused by the high energy consumption of some PC Cards.
Be certain to turn off the power before inserting a PCMCIA card. Be sure you insert the PCMCIA card in the right direction. Inserting a PCMCIA card in the wrong direction may cause damage to the MobilePro HPC. Return to Table of Contents http://kbase/mobilpro/400/docs/mprouser.htm...
Step 1 Press the Eject button as shown to eject a PCMCIA card from the PCMCIA card slot. CAUTION Make sure to turn off the Power on the MobilePro HPC before pressing the Eject button. Return to Table of Contents http://kbase/mobilpro/400/docs/mprouser.htm...
Raise the display cover on both HPC devices as shown below. Step 2 Position the MobilePro HPC and the other HPC facing each other (8 to 20 inches apart). Be sure that there is nothing obstructing the path between the optical communication ports on both HPCs.
Input 100V to 240V AC, 60Hz, 8W Output DC3V, 1000mA Step 1 Make sure the MobilePro HPC is turned off. Insert the plug on the AC Adapter into the AC jack socket on the MobilePro HPC (located on the left side of the unit). Step 2 Plug the AC Adapter into an AC outlet.
MobilePro Users Guide Page 24 of 35 Disconnecting an AC Adapter Step 1 Make sure the MobilePro HPC is turned off. Step 2 Remove the power plug from the AC outlet. Step 3 Disconnect the AC Adapter by removing the plug from the AC Adapter jack socket on the MobilePro HPC.
When using the AC Adapter, the socket-outlet should be near the MobilePro HPC and easily accessible. Be certain that the MobilePro HPC is off before connecting or disconnecting an AC Adapter. It is important to keep the main batteries loaded when running the AC Adapter. You cannot power up the MobilePro HPC without the main batteries installed.
Replacing the Batteries CAUTION For replacing batteries: The power is automatically turned off if the MobilePro HPC is kept running when the batteries are too weak. You must replace the batteries immediately if the power is turned off. Always, use two new batteries of the same type, same manufacturer.
MobilePro Users Guide Page 27 of 35 Step 4 Insert two new AA Alkaline batteries into the battery compartment. Make sure the batteries are placed on top of the ribbon, as shown below.
