Maintaining the MC40
For trouble-free service, observe the following tips when using the MC40:
Do not scratch the screen of the MC40. When working with the MC40, use only a finger. Never use an actual pen
or pencil or other sharp object on the surface of the MC40 screen.
The touch-sensitive screen of the MC40 is glass. Do not to drop the MC40 or subject it to strong impact.
Protect the MC40 from temperature extremes. Do not leave it on the dashboard of a car on a hot day, and keep it
away from heat sources.
Do not store or use the MC40 in any location that is dusty, damp, or wet.
Use a soft lens cloth to clean the MC40. If the surface of the MC40 screen becomes soiled, clean it with a soft
cloth moistened with a diluted window-cleaning solution.
Periodically replace the rechargeable battery to ensure maximum battery life and product performance. Battery
life depends on individual usage patterns.
