United States Radio and TV Interference Regulations

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

The Microsoft hardware device(s) that accompanies this software can radiate radio frequency (RF) energy. If not installed and used in strict accordance with the instructions given in the printed documentation, the device may cause harmful interference with radio and TV reception. Any cable that is connected to the device must be a shielded cable that is properly grounded.

Your Microsoft hardware device has been tested, and it complies with the limits for a Class B computing device in accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful RF interference in a residential installation. There is, however, no guarantee that RF interference will not occur in a particular installation.

To determine if your hardware device is causing interference to other radio-communication devices, disconnect the device from your computer. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the device. If the interference continues after you disconnect the hardware device, turn the computer off and then on again. If the interference stopped when the computer was off, check to see if one of the input/output (I/O) devices or one of the computer internal accessory boards is causing the problem. Disconnect the I/O devices one at a time and see if the interference stops.

If this hardware device does cause interference, try the following measures to correct it:

  • Relocate the radio or TV antenna until the interference stops.
  • Move the hardware device farther away from the radio or TV, or move it to one side or the other of the radio or TV.
  • Plug the computer into a different power outlet so that the hardware device and radio or TV are on different circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.
  • If necessary, ask your computer dealer or an experienced radio-TV technician for more suggestions. You may find helpful information in the booklet “The Interference Handbook” (1995), published by the FCC. The booklet is available from the Compliance and Information Bureau of the FCC (1-888-CALL FCC) and on their website at http://www.fcc.gov/cib/.
NOTE: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by Microsoft could void the user authority to operate this device.

Tested to comply with FCC standards. For home and office use. Model Number: KB3, KB4, KB5, KB6
