malfunction or may produce audible/visible noise.
If it is not practical to use a separate electrical
outlet, connect a power supply noise filter
between this unit and the electrical outlet.
302
● The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after
long hours of consecutive use. This is normal, and
is not a cause for concern.
303a
● The use of an AC adaptor is recommended as the
unit’s power consumption is relatively high. When
using batteries, please use nickel metal hydride
batteries.
304a
● When installing or replacing batteries, always turn
off the power on this unit and disconnect any other
devices you may have connected. This way, you
can prevent malfunction.
Placement

***]
● Depending on the circumstances of a particular
setup, you may experience a discomforting
sensation, or perceive that the surface feels gritty
to the touch when you touch this device,
microphones connected to it, or the metal portions
of other objects. This is due to an infinitesimal
electrical charge, which is harmless to humans;
however, if you are concerned, please use
batteries as necessary.
351
● Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other
equipment containing large power transformers)
may induce hum or visible noise. To alleviate the
problem, change the orientation of this unit; or
move it farther away from the source of
interference.
352a
● This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of
such receivers.
352b
● Noise may be produced if wireless
communications devices, such as cell phones, are
operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise
could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or
while conversing. Should you experience such
problems, you should relocate such wireless
devices so they are at a greater distance from this
unit, or switch them off.
354a
● Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it
near devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an
enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it to
temperature extremes. Excessive heat can
deform or discolor the unit.
Maintenance
401a

IMPORTANT NOTES
Additional Precautions (continued)
Handling Hard Disks (continued)
551
● Damage or breakdown of the unit or mistakes in
operation may result in the loss of data stored in
memory. To avoid problems in the event of the
loss of important data, we recommend to save the
data to your computer or USB mass storage.
• Please do not block the cooling fan vent on the
side panel.
• Do not leave the unit in any environment
subject to temperature extremes; for example,
in a closed automobile in summer or outdoors
during winter.
• Do not use the unit in conditions of high

subject to rapid temperature changes.
• If batteries are not installed, please do not
unplug the unit from the outlet or turn off the
breaker at the installation site while the power is
turned on.
552
● Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the
contents of data that was stored on a removable
storage, or USB mass storage once it has been
lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability
concerning such loss of data.
553
● Use a reasonable amount of care when using the
unit’s buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when
using its jacks and connectors. Rough handling
can lead to malfunctions.
554
● Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
556
● When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp
the connector itself—never pull on the cable. This
way you will avoid causing shorts, or damage to
the cable’s internal elements.
Handling Hard Disks
Important Performance and Image Data
811
● Once a hard disk fails to function normally, all data
that has been stored on it could be destroyed.
All hard disks eventually wear out. We
recommend that you consider the hard disk not as
a permanent storage site, but as a place to store
data temporarily. We also recommend that you
back up important performance and image data
that cannot be recorded again onto your computer
or USB mass storage (p. 29, 33, 40, 41).
Note that Roland assumes no liability whatsoever,
including monetary compensation, for the loss of
any recorded content in the event of the
malfunction of, or physical damage to the hard
disk, or for any direct or incidental damages
resulting from the loss of such data.
Precautions Regarding Setup and Use
812
● Certain hard disk setup procedures and usage
conditions may result in the corruption of recorded
data, malfunctioning, or physical damage to the
disk, so be sure to observe the following
precautions.
• Do not subject the hard disk to vibration or
shock, especially while the unit is in operation.
• Do not set up the unit in any location where it
may be affected by vibration from external
sources, or on any surface that is not stable.
10
Emergency Procedures
813
* The following procedures are to be used as
emergency measures only, and are not
recommended for normal operation.
● If the device fails to respond to operational
commands or does not complete operations, use
the following procedures to turn off the power:
• Hold down the [ (power)] button for about
four seconds to switch off the power.
• Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
(If batteries are installed, remove the battery
case.)
If the unit does not operate normally when the
power is turned on again, it may mean that the
hard disk has been damaged. In such instances,
consult your dealer or the nearest EDIROL/
Roland Service Center. Note, however, that it may
not be possible to recover any data from the hard
disk once it has been lost.
Also, please perform periodic scans of the hard
disk (p. 39) even if operating normally.

Capturing Video and Audio
You can capture high quality audio from the microphone input and line input.
Audio capture happens at the same time as HDV/DV stream capture. You can capture the
audio on location and synchronize to the video.
* The timing of the capture of video and audio will not match perfectly. A slight gap (a few frames)
occurs between the timing of the capture of audio and video, because although audio is input in real
time, the HDV/DV stream output from the camera is not in real time.
The timing gap between video and audio capture can be corrected. See “Capturing while Correcting
the Synchronization Gap between Audio and Video” (p. 46) for details.

DV camera.
* When listening to the audio, there will be a delay between the video displayed on the HDV/DV
camera display and the audio output from the PHONES jack.
This gap in output timing can be corrected by delaying the audio. See “Delaying Audio Output

* Set the format of the HDV/DV camera so it matches the format of the material file to be played.
If the formats do not match, then the stream cannot be played on the F-1.
There are also cameras that have a mode that automatically switches the HDV/DV format.
Even if this mode is set, you may not be able to play the stream on the F-1.

Troubleshooting
If you suspect a malfunction, please check the following points. If this does not resolve the
problem, contact a nearby EDIROL/Roland Service Center.
Power Supply
Problem
Cause and Action
The power won’t turn on
● Are you using an AC adaptor other than the one supplied?
➔ Please use the included AC adaptor (p. 23).
● Are the batteries oriented properly?
➔ Check that the battery terminals (+ and -) are oriented correctly (p. 25).
The power turns off
suddenly
● If no operations are performed within a set period of time, the power may
automatically turn off according to the Auto Power Off settings.
➔ Set the menu item “Auto Power OFF” to “Off” (p. 52).
● When using batteries, the power will turn off if the batteries are low.
➔ Replace with new batteries (p. 24).
● Does the “Battery Type” setting match the batteries being used?
➔ Please set the menu item “Battery Type” to match the batteries being used
(p. 26). Incorrect battery settings can cause a problem in operation due to
voltage drops.
Problems during Capture
Problem
Cause and Action
Cannot perform capture
● Is the HDV/DV stream being input?
➔ If there is no HDV/DV stream being input, a capture will not start even if the
[
(REC)] button is pressed.
● Is the removable storage inserted properly?
➔ If the removable storage is not detected properly, the “Media is not exist”
error message is displayed. After turning off power, re-insert the removable
storage (p. 37).
● Is the rear cover open?
➔ If the rear cover is not completely closed, the “Rear cover is opened.” error
message is displayed. Please close the rear cover.
Timecode display stops
during capture
● The timecode output from the HDV/DV camera may not be correct.
➔ Please confirm the capture time with the Total Time shown on the Home
Screen.
“i.LINK TC Error.” is
displayed
● Timecode is not included in the input DV/HDV stream.
➔ The capture is performed but the timecode is not saved correctly in the “*.dv”
or “*.m2t” file that is created.
Furthermore, if audio is captured at the same time, the timecode in the
created WAV file starts from “00:00:00:00.”

Troubleshooting
PC Problems
Problem
Cause and Action
Cannot connect to the PC
using USB
● Could you have turned on the power to the F-1 after the PC and the F-1
were already connected using USB?
➔ First turn on power to the F-1, then connect the PC and F-1 using USB (p. 29).
*.dv files do not play on
the PC
● Is QuickTime™ installed on your PC?
➔ *.dv files cannot be browsed or edited on a PC that does not have
QuickTime™ installed. Please download the QuickTime™ application from the
Apple website.
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/
Playback Problems
Problem
Cause and Action
“Format Disagreement.” is
displayed
● Does the format of the HDV/DV camera match that of the material file
being played?
➔ Set the format of the HDV/DV camera so it matches the format of the material
file to be played. If the formats do not match, then the stream cannot be
played on the F-1.
There are also cameras that have a mode that automatically switches the
HDV/DV format. Even if this mode is set, you may not be able to play the
stream on the F-1.
Timecode is not output
correctly
● Could you be capturing an HDV/DV stream that does not include
timecode?
➔ If you capture an HDV/DV stream without timecode, the timecode won’t be
saved correctly in the “*.dv” or “*.m2t” file that is created. As a result, upon
playback, the timecode that’s output will be incorrect.
Audio Problems
Problem
Cause and Action
The microphone cannot be
used
● Is a condenser microphone connected?
➔ When a condenser microphone requiring +48v phantom power is connected,
please set the [+48V] switch to “ON” to supply phantom power (p. 13).
The volume of the device
connected to the AUDIO IN
Connector is low
● Is the [GAIN] switch set to “-20dB”?
➔ If the audio input from the microphone is still too low after adjusting the input
level, please set this to “MIC” (p. 13).
The captured audio is too
low
● Did you adjust the audio input level?
➔ Turn up the audio input level using the [AUDIO IN Level] knob (p. 14).

Troubleshooting
Network Problems
Problem
Cause and Action
When connecting from a
PC (Windows), I’m asked
for a user password
● Have you set the login password for the PC?
➔ Please set the PC login password.
The F-1 is not displayed in
the PC (Windows)
workgroup
● The F-1 may not be shown depending on the Windows network usage
status.
➔ Enter the following in Explorer on the PC.
\\(IP address of the F-1)\F1DRIVE
Example: \\169.254.78.100\F1DRIVE
* Verify the IP address of the F-1 using the menu items “Network Setting” →
“IP Address.”
Other Problems
Problem
Cause and Action
The POWER lamps and
other lamps do not light
● Are the lamps set to be off?
➔ Set the menu item “LED” to “ON” (p. 52).
The internal clock (date/
time setting) resets
● Was the power supply disconnected?
➔ The internal clock operates using power supplied from either the AC adaptor
or batteries. When the power is off, the internal clock settings can be
maintained for a maximum of thirty days using the power *1 stored in the unit.
If power is not supplied for longer than this, the internal clock settings are
reset.
If batteries are inserted as a backup power supply, the internal settings can
be maintained for a longer period (p. 24).
*1 To achieve storage of the maximum amount of power, it takes 24 hours in
the following state.
Connect the AC adapter or supply power or insert batteries.
58
Remaining battery power
is not displayed correctly
● Does the “Battery Type” setting match the batteries being used?
➔ Please set the menu item “Battery Type” to match the batteries being used
(p. 26).
Amount of space
remaining on the
removable storage is not
displayed correctly
● If the F-1 is started with USB mass storage connected, the USB mass
storage may be mistakenly identified as removable storage.
➔ Restart the F-1 after removing the USB mass storage and checking that the
removable storage is correctly connected.
The display is difficult to
read
● The display may be difficult to read depending on where the unit is placed
and on the conditions.
➔ Adjust the menu item “Display Brightness” (p. 51).
The display is dark
● The display turns off when there is no activity for a fixed amount of time
according to the display timer settings.
➔ Set the menu item “Display Timer” to “OFF” (p. 51).

Troubleshooting
Other Problems (continued)
Problem
Cause and Action
No response to actions/
Operations do not
complete
● If the unit becomes unresponsive to your actions or if operations fail to
complete, please turn off power following the procedure below.
* The following procedures are to be used as emergency measures only, and
are not recommended for normal operation.
• Hold down the [ (power)] button for about four seconds to switch off
the power.
• Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
