training are the same as those required for
dictating directly to the computer using a
headset microphone.

2 Make sure that the operation indicator
does not light.
3 Disconnect the IC recorder from the
USB AC adaptor, and then disconnect
the USB AC adaptor from the AC outlet.
P Notes
• During recording (the operation indicator
lights or flashes in red) or accessing data (the
operation indicator flashes in orange),
– the IC recorder should not be connected to
or disconnected from the USB AC adaptor
connected to the AC outlet.
– the USB AC adaptor connected to the IC
recorder should not be connected to or
disconnected from the AC outlet.
Doing so may damage the data. If the IC
recorder is required to process a large
amount of data, the start-up window may be

GB
displayed for an extended period of time.
This is not a malfunction of the IC recorder.
Wait until the start-up display disappears
from the display window.
• While a USB AC adaptor (not supplied) is
being used, the remaining battery indicator
does not appear in the display window.
Precautions
On power
Operate the unit only on 1.5 V or 1.2 V DC.
Use one NH-AAA rechargeable battery or
one LR03 (size AAA) alkaline battery.
On safety
Do not operate the unit while driving,
cycling or operating any motorized vehicle.
On handling
Additional Information
• Do not leave the unit in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust or mechanical
shock.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the unit, remove the battery and have the
unit checked by qualified personnel
before operating it any further.
• Be careful not to allow water to splash on
the unit. The unit is not water-proof. In
particular, be careful in the following
situations.
– When you have the unit in your pocket
and go to the bathroom, etc.
When you bend down, the unit may
drop into the water and may get wet.
– When you use the unit in an
environment where the unit is exposed
to rain, snow, or humidity.
– In circumstances where you get sweaty.
If you touch the unit with wet hands or
if you put the unit in the pocket of
sweaty clothes, the unit may get wet.
• You may feel pain in your ears if you use
the headphones when the ambient air is
very dry. This is not because of a
malfunction of the headphones, but
because of static electricity accumulated
in your body. You can reduce static
electricity by wearing non-synthetic
clothes that prevent the emergence of
static electricity.
On noise
• Noise may be heard when the unit is
placed near an AC power source, a
fluorescent lamp or a mobile phone
during recording or playback.
• Noise may be recorded when an object,
such as your finger, etc., rubs or scratches
the unit during recording.

On maintenance
To clean the exterior, use a soft cloth
slightly moistened in water. Do not use
alcohol, benzine or thinner.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your unit, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
Backup recommendations
To avoid potential risk of data loss
caused by accidental operation or
malfunction of the IC recorder, we
recommend that you save a backup copy
of your recorded messages on a tape
recorder or to a computer, etc.
