Note
The LCD screen is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of
the pixels are operational for effective use. However, some tiny black and/or bright dots (white, red,
blue or green) may appear on the LCD screen. These dots are a normal result of the manufaturing
process, and do not affect the recording.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
1.If the LCD image is not clear when shooting, how can the focus be adjusted?
Try to switch between Macro and Normal Mode. Macro Mode: For object in distance about 20 cm (0.67
feet) , Normal Mode: For object in distance beyond 200cm (6.7 feet).
2.The files on the memory card do not display smoothly when the LCD shows the “!” marking.
The” !” means the SD card is low speed or has wrong content inside. The way to solve this condition
is to format SD card by camera instead of PC.(Please read the detail Format instruction in Section
5).You may use a higher speed SD/SDHC card.

3.Why do some of my indoor pictures look blurry and dark?
Camera extends pictures exposure time under low light/ indoor condition. Keep camera (and
photographed subject) steady for several seconds when taking pictures. Shutter will sound when
picture has been taken.
4.How do I charge battery?
You must use the supplied AC charger or USB cable.
Camera must be turned OFF; blinking light confirms charging, but light is constant when charging has
been completed.
