General Precautions
This chapter aims to help you optimize safety and to prolong
the life of your Unibook S0006.


Provide Adequate Ventilation
Always make sure of your tablet and AC adaptor have adequate ventilation and are
protected from overheating when the power is turned on or when and AC adaptor is
connected to a power outlet. In this condition, observe the following:
This Unibook S006 should only be used in environments with ambient temperatures
between 10C (50F) and 35C (95F).
DO NOT carry or cover a Unibook S006 that is powered on with any materials that will
reduce air circulation such as a carrying bag.
DO NOT throw the Unibook S006 in municipal waste. This product has been designed to
enable proper reuse of parts and recycling. The symbol of the crossed out wheeled bin
indicates that the product (electrical, electronic equipment and mercury-containing
button cell battery) should not be placed in municipal waste. Check local regulations for
disposal of electronic products.
DO NOT throw the battery in municipal waste. The symbol of the crossed out wheeled
bin indicates that the battery should not be placed in municipal waste.

Creating a Friendly Environment
Place the Unibook S006 on a flat surface that is large enough for the tablet and any other
items you are using.
Leave enough space around the tablet and other equipment to provide adequate
ventilation. Otherwise, they may over-heat.
To keep your tablet in prime operating condition, protect your work area from:
Dirty or dusty environments.
Equipment that generates a strong electromagnetic field, such as stereo speakers (other
than speakers that are connected to the computer) or speakerphones.
Small items that may scratch or enter inside the tablet.
Extreme heat, cold, or humidity.
Liquids and corrosive chemicals.


Heat Injury
Avoid prolonged physical contact with the tablet. If the tablet is used for long periods, its
surface can become very warm. In this condition, make sure of the following:
Do not leave the Unibook S006 on your lap or any part of the body to prevent discomfort
or injury from heat exposure.
If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact with the metal plate
supporting various interface ports as this can become hot.
The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use but this condition does not
indicate malfunction.

Impact Damage
Do not place or drop objects on top of the tablet.
Do not shove any foreign objects into the tablet.
Do not throw the tablet.

Battery Safety Warning
Do not throw the battery in fire.
Do not short circuit the contacts.
Do not disassemble the battery.
Incorrect installation of battery may cause explosion and damage the Unibook S006.

Recycling your Battery
Over time, the batteries that run your tablet will begin to hold a charge for a
shorter amount of time; this is a natural occurrence for all batteries. When this occurs,
you may want to replace the battery with a fresh one*. If you replace it, it is important
that you dispose of the old battery properly because batteries contain materials that
could cause environmental damage if disposed of improperly.


Disposing of Used Batteries
The life of a battery pack depends on usage. When the battery pack needs replacing, the
main battery light flashes amber shortly after you have fully recharged the battery. You
must discard a battery if it becomes damaged.

Never attempt to dispose of a battery pack by burning or by throwing it into a
fire, and never allow exposure to a heating apparatus (e.g., microwave oven).
Heat can cause a battery pack
To explode and/or release caustic liquid, both which may possibly cause
serious injury.
Always dispose of used battery packs in compliance with all applicable laws
and regulations. Put insulating tape, such as cellophane tape, on the electrode
during transportation to avoid
a possible short circuit, fire or electric shock. Failure to do so could possibly
result in serious injury.

Transporting the Unibook Tablet

Protect the Tablet PC from severe shocks and extreme temperatures(e.g.
direct sunlight in a car).
Do not transport your tablet while it is turned on.
Carry your tablet with you while travelling, rather than checking it in as
Never put your unibook tablet through a metal detector; have it hand-
inspected by security personnel.
Switch the unibook tablet off.
Unplug the AC plug of the AC adapter and all external devices from the power
outlets. Disconnect the AC adapter cable and the data cables for all external

To protect the Tablet PC against damaging jolts and bumps, use a suitable
unibook tablet carrying case to transport your Tablet PC.

Transport tips:
Put your tablet in a protective care when not in use to prevent damage or
Place your tablet in a safe position so that it does not get caught when the
person in front of you leans back.
If you carry you tablet into an airplane, check with the airline for any
restrictions before boarding the airplane.
If there are restrictions on the use of tablets with the wireless feature on an
airplane, enable the Airplane mode.
Keep your eyes on the tablet at all times to prevent theft.
Extreme heat can not only shorten battery life, it can also reduce your tablets
longevity by causing internal parts to expand, potentially damaging them.
Do not store tablet or any of its accessories in the area over the air bag or in
the air bag deployment area.
Driving and riding safety. Be careful and attentive while driving or riding
Since it is easy to handle, there is no such problem on transporting more
importantly you should handle it with care.

If storing your tablet for a month or longer, turn it off, fully charge the
battery, then remove and store all Lithium Polymer batteries.
Store your tablet in a cool, dry location. Temperatures should remain
between 13F / -25C and 140F / 60C.

Store your tablet and batteries separately. If you store your tablet with a
battery installed, the battery will discharge, and battery life will be reduced.
In addition, a faulty battery might damage your tablet.
Always power off the tablet before transporting and/or packaging it. After
shutting down the tablet, wait until the status led panel indicates power off
condition (i.e., no lights are illuminated).
It is possible that the tablet may not automatically go to power-off or
hibernate mode when you close the lid. This situation may occur due to pre-
operating system boot password security settings or some other application
running on the tablet.
Attempting to transport the tablet while power is on may damage the tablet
due to shock or overheating.

How to Clean
Follow these steps to quickly and completely remove all of those greasy fingerprints to
reveal a clean, polished surface that looks like new:

Dry Cloth:
1. To prepare for the job, turn the power off on your device. This makes the
screen darker, so the dirt is easier to see, but it also prevents any damage to
your device. Plus since it is a touch screen you dont want to accidentally
download an expensive app or send off an unwanted email while you are
wiping. You can also just use a hold setting, but this will slightly increase risk
because the power is still on, and a single button press will activate the
operating system.
2. For most cases you can just use these cloths dry. You dont really need to add
any moisture, except in extreme cases, and you will never have to use any
sort of cleanser. Just water, and only when necessary.

3. The high quality material will remove fingerprints, smudges and other grime
in a single swipe, and with almost no effort. It will also polish at the same
time, so you will have your tablet looking super nice in no time.
4. To clean, simply wipe the surface to reveal a shiny streak and smudge free
5. Start from the outside in, or move top to bottom. Use one continuous motion
to lift up dirt with just one pass. There will never be any lint left behind, and
you dont need to rub and scrub to achieve great results.
6. A dry approach will eliminate all standard grime in a matter of seconds. If any
stubborn stuff remains, simply wipe again, or proceed to the method below.

Wet Cloth:
1. If the build-up is extra thick because maybe you decided it was a good idea to
eat lunch while you work, then just add a little bit of water. When adding
moisture, you only need a very little bit, and if your cloth is dripping, then you
have way too much. Simply get it wet under the tap, and then wring until it is
left just barely damp, and not at all dripping. Once dampened these cloths can
really clean. Their power is increased as water acts like a detergent to cut
through and remove the most stubborn sticky stuff.
2. Wipe in the same way, and this time any food particles, boogers, or other
sticky and/or crusty particle that you might have glided over with your cloth
dry will now be wiped clean with ease.
3. Since the cloth is only damp, you are not running any risk of damage either. If
there is any residual moisture, it should be so little that it evaporates and
disappears in just a few seconds.
4. If you wiped with too much moisture, take a dry cloth to remove it quickly.


After The Cleaning
Once the screen is clean, you can keep wiping away to shine up any surface of your
tablet. The great thing about these cloths is that they are specially designed for the
screen, but will achieve great results on the other part of your computer too. Wipe every
side; clean the case, shine accessories and more. Use it for your phone or laptop and it
will work just as well, and dont worry about wearing it out because each one is good for
thousands of uses, and hundreds of washings. You will not need to launder it after every
use, and most folks will go months before it has to be washed. Even then, a quick spin in
the washer with your towel load will have it good as new, and ready to go with little

Its always best to disconnect any cords or accessories form your
computer prior to cleaning it. Also make sure you are using a freshly washed cloth for
best results. If not right out of the laundry, inspect to make sure there is no sand or
other abrasive debris in the fibers because they may cause scratches.


This chapter aims to help you solve many problems by yourself.
It covers the problems you are most likely to encounter.

Battery Problems
The battery does not last very long (less than eight hours)
Hot or cold conditions can adversely affect the battery charge. Use AC power if you are
operating the tablet in these conditions.
Condition the battery once a month by using the tablet on battery power and allowing
the battery charge to drop below 20 percent before connecting the battery to AC power.
Have the battery replaced. While the built-in lithium-ion battery is designed for a long
battery life, you may find the need to replace it. If so, contact your Sierra Customer
Service. Only authorized service providers can replace the battery.

Display Problems
When I connect to an external monitor, the cursor appears on the external monitor and
not on my tablet
If you have connected multiple touch-enabled displays, Windows may not assign touch
to the correct display.
To fix this issue, run Setup to assign touch to the appropriate display. Make sure a
keyboard is attached to your tablet and then open Unibook.
Tap Pen & Tablet, and then tap Tablet PC Settings.
Tap the Display tab, and then tap Setup next to Configure your pen and touch displays.
Tap Touch Input, and then press the Enter key until you see the instructions appear on
the display that you want to use for touch input.

When I disconnect an external monitor, the desktop area is larger than the tablet display
The tablet may have expanded the desktop beyond the display area of the tablet PC
display when it was connected to the external monitor. Open Unibook, tap Display.
Then, from the Display Scheme drop-down list, select Tablet Only.
The display is too dim
The display brightness may be set too low. Open Unibook, tap Display, then move the
brightness slider to the desired level.

Properties to reset the display settings. From Windows Control Panel, select Hardware
and Sound category. Under Display, change the desired settings.

Touch or Pen Problems
The tablet does not respond to the pen I am using
Use only the unibook pen with the tablet. The Unibook Tablet does not respond to
other digitizer pens.
The pen function button does not work
You may not be pressing the button early enough. Try pressing and holding the pen
function button before you touch the pen to the display surface.

Tablet. Tap Pen & Input Devices and tap the Pen Options tab. Tap the check box next to
the box, Use the pen button as a right-click equivalent
The Unibook responds to my finger but not my pen
The tablet may be configured to ignore pen input. To check, open Unibook then tap Pen
& Tablet. Tap Touch Settings and tap the Digitizer Options tab. Set Input mode to
recognize both touch and pen.
The Unibook tablet is too sensitive to touch
Consider changing a touch setting so that you have to double-tap the display to enable
touch. Open Unibook then tap Pen & Tablet. Tap Touch Settings and then Auto mode.
The touch pointer jumps around the display and the display flickers
In some cases, the tablets touch system gets out of sync. To fix it, you can re-tune it.
Open Unibook, then tap Pen & Tablet, tap Touch Settings, tap Touch Tuning, then Start.
A calibration program begins. Do not touch the display until the program has finished.

Audio problems
No sound is coming from the built-in speaker.
Ensure that nothing is connected to the audio in/out jack. Connecting headphones or
external speakers disables the built-in speaker.

Ports and Connectors Problems
