Q: How do I backup my information?
A: It is important to always have a back-up of your electronic information.
Here are some suggestions:
· You can connect the unit to your desktop PC and backup your data to the
PC using the Windows CE Services.
· You can copy your files to a PCMCIA SRAM Memory Card or a PCMCIA
Flash Memory Card. Flash Memory Cards (space permitting) require no
battery backup system.
Q: The unit does not seem to work. I changed the batteries
but still nothing happens. What should I do?
A: Check that the battery replacement switch on the back of the unit is in the
NORMAL OPERATION position, otherwise the unit will not turn on. Make
sure the batteries are fresh (HC-4000/4100) or the installed battery pack is
fully charged (HC-4500).
Also, try to reset the unit by pressing the RESET button with the stylus. As
a last resort, remove the backup battery and main batteries for 30 seconds.
Then put the main batteries and backup battery back in.

This procedure will cause the loss of all data in the unit! If the problem still
persists, contact your local dealer for servicing.
