Other Safety Considerations

Engaging in repetitive motions such as pressing keys or playing some games may cause

you to experience occasional discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other

parts of your body. Discontinue use of your device and consult a physician if you

experience discomfort. To reduce risk of these symptoms avoid prolonged use and take

frequent breaks.

Small parts contained in your device and its accessories may present a choking hazard to

small children.

Using your Kindle while operating a vehicle is not recommended and may be prohibited or

restricted in some areas. If you are in an area where using your Kindle while operating a

vehicle is allowed, always give full attention to the operation of the vehicle and stop using

your Kindle if it becomes a distraction.

Wireless Safety and Compliance

Turn your wireless connection off in areas where wireless use is forbidden or where it may

cause interference or danger. Some specific situations are described below. In general,

you should not use your Kindle with your wireless connection turned on anywhere you are

not allowed to use a mobile device.

Use Aeroplane Mode When Flying

To prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation

Administration regulations and many other aviation agencies require you to have

permission from a crew member to use your device's wireless service.

Using Your Kindle Around Other Electronic Devices

Kindle generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency (RF) energy and, if not used in

accordance with its instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications

and electronic equipment. External RF signals may affect improperly installed or

inadequately shielded electronic operating systems, entertainment systems, and personal

medical devices. While most modern electronic equipment is shielded from external RF

signals, if in doubt, check with the manufacturer. For personal medical devices (such as

pacemakers and hearing aids), consult your physician or the manufacturer to determine

whether they are adequately shielded from external RF signals.

Steps to Minimise Interference

If your Kindle does cause interference to radio or television reception (which you can

determine by turning your Kindle off and on), you can try to correct the interference by one

or more of the following measures: reorient or relocate the receiving antenna for the radio

or television; increase the distance between the radio or television and your Kindle;

connect equipment and receivers to different outlets; or consult the radio or television

manufacturer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
