● Since the AC Adapter processes electricity internally,
it becomes warm during use. Be sure to use it only in
well-ventilated areas.
● The following operation stops charging:
• Set the Power Switch r to “PLAY”, “ ” or “ ”.
• Disconnect the AC Adapter from the camcorder.
• Unplug the AC Adapter from the AC outlet.
• Detach the battery from the camcorder.
● This camcorder will be automatically turned off if its power
is supplied from the AC adapter and about 5 minutes pass
since it has entered into the recording standby mode with
a cassette inserted. If, under those conditions, the battery
is attached to the camcorder, its charging will start.
● Using the optional AA-V40U AC Power Adapter/Charger,
you can charge the BN-V408U/V416U/V428U battery
pack without the camcorder. However, it cannot be used
as an AC adapter.
● To avoid interference with reception, do not use the AC
Adapter near a radio.
● Perform charging where the temperature is between
10°C and 35°C (50°F and 95°F). 20°C to 25°C (68°F to
77°F) is the ideal temperature range for charging. If the
environment is too cold, charging may be incomplete.
● Charging time varies according to the ambient
temperature and the status of the battery pack.

The Benefits Of Lithium-Ion Batteries
Lithium-ion battery packs are small but have a large
power capacity. However, when one is exposed to cold
temperatures (below 10°C/50°F), its usage time
becomes shorter and it may cease to function. If this
happens, place the battery pack in your pocket or other
warm, protected place for a short time, then re-attach it
to the camcorder. As long as the battery pack itself is
not cold, it should not affect performance.

Time Code
Normal Playback
During recording, a time code is recorded on the tape.
This code is to confirm the location of the recorded
scene on the tape during playback.
If recording starts from a blank portion, the time code
begins counting from “00:00:00” (minute:second:frame).
If recording starts from the end of a previously recorded
scene, the time code continues from the last time code
number.
If during recording a blank portion is left partway
through the tape, the time code is interrupted. When
recording is resumed, the time code starts counting up
again from “00:00:00”. This means the camcorder may
record the same time codes as those existing in a
previously recorded scene. To prevent this, perform
“RECORDING FROM THE MIDDLE OF A TAPE” in the
following cases;
• When shooting again after playing back a recorded
tape.
• When power shuts off during shooting.
• When a tape is removed and re-inserted during
shooting.
• When shooting using a partially recorded tape.
• When shooting on a blank portion located partway
through the tape.

NOTES:
AC Adapter
When using the AC Adapter in areas other than
the USA
The provided AC Adapter features automatic voltage
selection in the AC range from 110 V to 240 V.
USING HOUSEHOLD AC PLUG ADAPTER
In case of connecting the unit’s power cord to an AC
wall outlet other than American National Standard C73
series type use an AC plug adapter, called a “Siemens
Plug”, as shown.
For this AC plug adapter, consult your nearest JVC
dealer.
Plug adapter
If there is dust or dirt on the AC Adapter, wipe it
clean before using.
Battery Packs
The supplied battery pack is a
lithium-ion battery. Before using
the supplied battery pack or an
optional battery pack, be sure to
read the following cautions:
1. To avoid hazards . . .
Terminals
... do not burn.
... do not short-circuit the terminals. When
transporting, make sure the provided battery cap
is attached to the battery. If the battery cap is
misplaced, carry the battery in a plastic bag.
... do not modify or disassemble.
... do not expose the battery to temperatures
exceeding 60°C (140°F), as this may cause the
battery to overheat, explode or catch fire.
... use only specified chargers.
2. To prevent damage and prolong service life . . .
... do not subject to unnecessary shock.
... charge in an environment where temperatures are
within the tolerances shown in the following chart.
This is a chemical reaction type battery—cooler
temperatures impede chemical reaction, while
warmer temperatures can prevent complete
charging.
... store in a cool, dry place. Extended exposure to
high temperatures will increase natural discharge
and shorten service life.
... fully charge and then fully discharge the battery
every 6 months when storing the battery pack
over a long period time.
... remove from charger or powered unit when not in
use, as some machines use current even when
switched off.
● It is normal for the battery pack to be warm after
charging, or after use.
Temperature Range Specifications
Charging ................ 10°C to 35°C (50°F to 95°F)
Operation ............... 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F)
Storage .................. –10°C to 30°C (14°F to 86°F)
● Recharging time is based on room temperature of 20°C
(68°F).
● The lower the temperature, the longer recharging takes.
Cassettes
To properly use and store your cassettes, be sure to
read the following cautions:
1. During use . . .
... make sure the cassette bears the Mini DV mark.
... be aware that recording onto prerecorded tapes
automatically erases the previously recorded
video and audio signals.
... make sure the cassette is positioned properly
when inserting.
... do not load and unload the cassette repeatedly
without allowing the tape to run at all. This
slackens the tape and can result in damage.
... do not open the front tape cover. This exposes the
tape to fingerprints and dust.
2. Store cassettes . . .
... away from heaters or other heat sources.
... out of direct sunlight.
... where they won’t be subject to unnecessary shock
or vibration.
... where they won’t be exposed to strong magnetic
fields (such as those generated by motors,
transformers or magnets).
... vertically, in their original cases.
LCD Monitor
1. To prevent damage to the LCD monitor,
DO NOT . . .
... push it strongly or apply any shocks.
... place the camcorder with the LCD monitor on the
bottom.
2. To prolong service life . . .
... avoid rubbing it with coarse cloth.
3. Be aware of the following phenomena for LCD
monitor use.
These are not malfunctions:
• While using the camcorder, the surface around the
LCD monitor and/or the back of the LCD monitor
may heat up.
• If you leave power on for a long time, the surface
around the LCD monitor becomes hot.

5. Dirty heads can cause the following problems:
Main Unit
1. For safety, DO NOT . . .
... open the camcorder’s chassis.
... disassemble or modify the unit.
... short-circuit the terminals of the battery pack.
Keep it away from metallic objects when not in
use.
... allow inflammables, water or metallic objects to
enter the unit.
... remove the battery pack or disconnect the power
supply while the power is on.
... leave the battery pack attached when the
camcorder is not in use.
2. Avoid using the unit . . .
... in places subject to excessive humidity or dust.
... in places subject to soot or steam such as near a
cooking stove.
... in places subject to excessive shock or vibration.
... near a television set.
... near appliances generating strong magnetic or
electric fields (speakers, broadcasting antennas,
etc.).
... in places subject to extremely high (over 40°C or
104°F) or extremely low (under 0°C or 32°F)
temperatures.
3. DO NOT leave the unit . . .
... in places of over 50°C (122°F).
... in places where humidity is extremely low (below
35%) or extremely high (above 80%).
... in direct sunlight.
... in a closed car in summer.
... near a heater.
4. To protect the unit, DO NOT . . .
... allow it to become wet.
... drop the unit or strike it against hard objects.
... subject it to shock or excessive vibration during
transportation.
... keep the lens directed at extremely bright objects
for long periods.
... expose the lens to direct sunlight.
... carry it by holding the LCD monitor or the
viewfinder.
... swing it excessively when using the shoulder strap
or the grip.
• No picture during playback.
• Blocks of noise appear during playback.
• During recording or playback, the Head Clog
Warning indicator “ ” appears.
• Recording cannot be performed properly.
In such cases, use an optional cleaning cassette.
Insert it and play back. If the cassette is used more
than once consecutively, damage to the video heads
may result. After the camcorder plays back for about
20 seconds, it stops automatically. Also refer to the
cleaning cassette’s instructions.
If, after using the cleaning cassette, the problems
still exist, consult your nearest JVC dealer.
Mechanical moving parts used to move the video
heads and video tape tend to become dirty and worn
out over time. In order to maintain a clear picture at
all times, periodic check-ups are recommended after
using the unit for about 1,000 hours. For periodic
check-ups please consult your nearest JVC dealer.
About moisture condensation . . .
● You have observed that pouring a cold liquid into a
glass will cause drops of water to form on the glass
outer surface. This same phenomenon occurs on the
head drum of a camcorder when it is moved from a
cool place to a warm place, after heating a cold room,
under extremely humid conditions or in a place directly
subjected to the cool air from an air conditioner.
● Moisture on the head drum can cause severe
damage to the video tape, and can lead to internal
damage to the camcorder itself.
Serious malfunctioning
If malfunctioning occurs, stop using the unit
immediately and consult your local JVC dealer.
The camcorder is a microcomputer-controlled
device. External noise and interference (from a TV,
a radio, etc.) might prevent it from functioning
properly. In such cases, first disconnect its power
supply unit (battery pack, AC Adapter, etc.) and wait
a few minutes and then re-connect it and proceed
as usual from the beginning.
