LCD monitor
The LCD monitor is manufactured
using extremely high-precision
technology, so over 99.99% of the
pixels are operational for effective
use. However, there may be some
tiny black points and/or bright points
(white, red, blue, or green in color)
that appear constantly on the LCD
monitor. These points are normal
results of the manufacturing process
and do not affect the recording in any
way.
Camcorder temperature
If you use the camcorder
continuously for a long time, the
camcorder gets very warm. This is not
a malfunction.

Overheat protection
Depending on the camcorder and
battery temperature, you may be
unable to record movies or the power
may turn off automatically to protect
the camcorder. A message will be
displayed on the LCD monitor before
the power turns off or you can no
longer record movies. In this case,
leave the power off and wait until the
camcorder and battery temperature
goes down. If you turn on the power
without letting the camcorder and
battery cool enough, the power may
turn off again or you may be unable
to record movies.
