Basic Functions Preparations
❍ We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10 ˚C and
30 ˚C. Outside the temperature range of 0 ˚C to 40 ˚C, the CHARGE indicator
flashes rapidly and charging stops.
❍ A lithium ion battery pack can be charged at any charge state. Unlike
conventional battery packs, you do not need to completely use or discharge it
before charging.
❍ We recommend that you prepare battery packs 2 to 3 times longer than you
think you might need.
❍ To conserve battery charge, turn off the camcorder instead of leaving it in
record pause mode.

Maintenance/Others
Camcorder Handling Precautions
❍ Do not carry the camcorder by the LCD panel or viewfinder.
❍ Do not leave the camcorder in places subject to high temperatures, such as a sunheated car, and high humidity.
❍ Do not use the camcorder in places subject to magnetic or electric fields such as
near the TV transmitters or portable communication devices.
❍ Do not point the lens or viewfinder at strong light sources. Do not leave the
camcorder pointed at a bright subject.
❍ Do not use the camcorder in dusty or sandy places. Dust or sand getting inside the
cassette or camcorder may cause damage. Dust and sand can also damage the lens.
Attach the lens cap after use.
❍ The camcorder is not waterproof. Water, mud or salt getting inside the cassette or
camcorder may cause damage.
❍ Be careful of heat generated by lighting equipment.
❍ Do not disassemble the camcorder. If the camcorder does not function properly,
consult qualified service personnel.
❍ Handle the camcorder with care. Do not subject the camcorder to shocks or
vibration as this may cause damage.
❍ Avoid sudden changes in temperature. Moving the camcorder rapidly between hot
and cold temperatures may cause condensation to form on its internal surfaces
(
147).
Storage
❍ If you do not intend to use the camcorder for a long time, store it in a place free of
dust, in low humidity, and at temperatures not higher than 30 ˚C.
❍ After storage, check the functions of your camcorder to make sure that the
camcorder is still working properly.
Cleaning
Camcorder Body and Lens
❍ Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the camcorder body and lens. Never use chemically
treated cloth or volatile solvents such as paint thinner.
LCD Screen
❍ Clean the LCD screen using a commercially available cleaning cloth for glasses.
❍ Condensation may form on the surface of the screen when the temperature
changes suddenly. Wipe it with a soft dry cloth.
Downloaded
From VideoCamera-Manual.com Manuals
146
❍ At cold temperatures, the screen may be darker than usual. This is not a
malfunction. The screen returns to normal when the camcorder warms up.
E
Video Heads
❍ When the message “HEADS DIRTY, USE CLEANING CASSETTE” appears, or when
the playback picture becomes distorted, the video heads need to be cleaned.
❍ To maintain the best picture quality, we recommend cleaning the video heads
frequently with the Canon DVM-CL Digital Video Head Cleaning Cassette or a
commercially available dry cleaning cassette.
❍ Tapes already recorded with dirty video heads may not be played back correctly
even when you clean the video heads.
❍ Do not use wet type cleaning cassettes as this may damage the camcorder.
Condensation
Moving the camcorder rapidly between hot and cold temperature may cause
condensation (water droplets) to form on its internal surfaces. Stop using the
camcorder if condensation is detected. Continued use may damage the camcorder.
Condensation may form in the following cases:
When the camcorder is moved from an
air-conditioned room to a warm, humid
place
When the camcorder is moved from a
cold place to a warm room
When the camcorder is left in a humid
room
When a cold room is heated rapidly
❍ Unload the cassette, place the camcorder in an airtight plastic bag and let it adjust
to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag.
Downloaded From VideoCamera-Manual.com Manuals
Additional
Information
How to avoid condensation:
147
When condensation is detected:
❍ The camcorder stops operating and the warning message “CONDENSATION HAS
BEEN DETECTED” appears for approx. 4 seconds and “h” starts flashing.
❍ If a cassette is loaded, the warning message “REMOVE THE CASSETTE” appears and
“v” starts flashing. Remove the cassette immediately and leave the cassette
compartment open. Leaving the cassette in the camcorder may damage the tape.
❍ A cassette cannot be loaded when condensation is detected.
Resuming use:
❍ It takes about 1 hour until the water droplets evaporate. After the condensation
warning stops flashing, wait for 1 more hour before resuming use.
Battery Pack Handling Precautions
DANGER!
Treat the battery pack with care.
• Keep it away from fire (or it might explode).
• Do not expose the battery pack to temperature higher than 60 ºC. Do not leave
it near a heater or inside a car in hot weather.
• Do not try to disassemble or modify it.
• Do not drop or knock it.
• Do not get it wet.
❍ Charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. Therefore, charge them on
the day of use, or the day before, to ensure a full charge.
❍ Attach the terminal cover whenever a battery pack is not in use. Contact to metallic
objects may cause a short circuit and damage the battery pack.
❍ Dirty terminals may cause a poor contact between the battery pack and the
camcorder. Wipe the terminals with a soft cloth.
❍ Since storing a charged battery pack for a long time (about 1 year) can shorten its
lifecycle or affect performance, we recommend to discharge the battery pack fully
and to store it in a dry place at temperatures no higher than 30 ˚C. If you do not
use the battery pack for long periods, charge and discharge it fully at least once a
year. If you have more than 1 battery pack, perform these precautions at the same
time for all battery packs.
❍ Although the battery pack’s operating temperature range is from 0 ˚C to 40 ˚C, the
optimal range is from 10 ˚C to 30 ˚C. At cold temperatures, performance will
temporarily decline. Warm it in your pocket before use.
❍ Replace the battery pack if the usable time after full charge diminishes substantially
at normal temperatures.

About the battery terminal cover
The battery terminal cover has a [ ]-shaped hole. This is useful when you wish to
differentiate between charged and uncharged battery packs. For example, with
charged battery packs, attach the terminal cover so that the [ ]-shaped hole shows
the blue label.

Cassette Handling Precautions
❍ Rewind tapes after use. If the tape becomes slack and damaged, it may cause picture
and sound distortion.
❍ Return cassettes in the case and store them upright.
❍ Do not leave the cassette in the camcorder after use.
❍ Do not use spliced tapes or nonstandard cassettes as they may damage the camcorder.
❍ Do not use tapes that have been jammed as video heads may become dirty.
❍ Do not insert anything into the small holes of the cassette, or cover them with
cellophane tape.
❍ Handle cassettes with care. Do not drop or subject them to severe impact as this may
damage the cassettes.
❍ Rewind tapes from time to time if they are stored for a long time.
❍ With cassettes equipped with a memory function, metal plated terminals may become
dirty with use. Clean the terminals with a cotton swab after about 10 times of
loading/unloading. The memory function is not supported by the camcorder.
Protecting Tapes from Accidental Erasure
To protect your recordings from accidental
erasure, slide the tab on the cassette to the
left. (This switch position is usually labelled
SAVE or ERASE OFF.)
If you load a protected cassette in CAMERA
mode, the message “THE TAPE IS SET FOR
ERASURE PREVENTION” appears for approx.
4 seconds and “v” starts flashing. If you wish to record on that cassette, slide the tab
back to the right.

Memory Card Handling Precautions
❍ Format new memory cards with the camcorder. Memory cards formatted with other
devices such as a computer may not operate correctly.
❍ We recommend saving backups of memory card images on your computer’s hard drive
or other external memory device. Image data may be corrupted or lost due to memory
card defects or exposure to static electricity. Canon Inc. makes no warranties for
corrupted or lost data.
❍ Do not turn off the camcorder, disconnect the power source, open the memory card
cover or remove the memory card while the card access indicator is flashing.
❍ Do not use memory cards in places subject to strong magnetic fields.
❍ Do not leave memory cards in places subject to high humidity and high temperature.
❍ Do not disassemble memory cards.
❍ Do not bend, drop, or subject memory cards to shocks and do not expose them to
water.
❍ Moving a memory card rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause
condensation to form on its external and internal surfaces. If condensation forms on
the card, put it aside until the droplets have evaporated completely.
❍ Do not touch or expose the terminals to dust or dirt.
❍ Check the direction before inserting the memory card. Forcing a memory card
backwards into the slot may damage the memory card or the camcorder.
❍ Do not remove the label from the memory card, or affix other labels on the memory
card.
