How is the remote control battery replaced?
The DiggiDitto™ remote control uses a CR2025 battery which
can be purchased at most electronics stores. To
change the battery:
1. Turn over the remote control so that the back
side faces up.
2. Push in the notch located on the side of the
battery holder and pull.
3. Replace with a new CR2025 battery.
Why is there no image?
ƒƒMake sure the cables and power cord are properly connected.
Check to make sure the power switch is turned on. It’s also
possible that the fuse needs to be replaced.
The image is bending; how is a straight image obtained?
ƒƒAdjust the camera position.
Why is the image out of focus?
ƒƒThe object may be too close to the lens.
ƒƒThe Focus may be at the maximum Zoom setting. Press
Zoom —.
ƒƒTry pressing Auto Focus.
ƒƒIf you are in a damp climate, moisture may accumulate on
the lens. It will disappear gradually as the equipment warms
up.
Why is the image so dark?

lights then increase the brightness level.
