LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high-precision technology that
provides a pixel yield of 99.99%. This means that some very small number of pixels
may not light or may remain lit at all times. This is due to the characteristics of the
liquid crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.
Take test shots
Before shooting your final image, shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is
recording correctly.

If this happens, plug the charger into an outlet that is further away from the TV or
radio.
• Actual charging time depends on current battery capacity and charging conditions.

Appendix
. Data Error Precautions
Your digital camera is manufactured using precision digital components. Any of the
following creates the risk of corruption of data in camera memory.
– Removing the battery or memory card while the camera is performing some
operation
– Removing the battery or memory card while the back lamp is lighting green after
turning off the camera
– Disconnecting the USB cable while communication is in progress
– Using a battery that is low
– Other abnormal operations
Any of the above conditions can cause an error message to appear on the monitor
screen (page 82). Perform the action indicated by the message that appears.
. Operating Environment
• Operating Temperature Requirements: 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F)
• Operating Humidity: 10 to 85% (non condensation)

– In an area exposed to direct sunlight, or large amounts of moisture, dust, or sand
– Near an air conditioner or in other areas subjected to extreme temperature or
humidity
– Inside of a motor vehicle on a hot day, or in an area subjected to strong vibration
. Condensation
Sudden and extreme temperature changes, such as when the camera is moved from
the outdoors on a cold winter day into a warm room, can cause water droplets called
“condensation” to form on the interior and the exterior of the camera, which creates
the risk of malfunction. To prevent condensation from forming seal the camera in a
plastic bag before changing locations. Then leave the bag sealed to allow the air
inside to naturally change to the same temperature as the air in the new location.
After that, remove the camera from the bag and open the battery cover for a few
hours.
. Lens
• Never apply too much force when cleaning the surface of the lens. Doing so can
scratch the lens surface and cause malfunction.
• You may sometimes notice some distortion in certain types of images, such as a
slight bend in lines that should be straight. This is due to the characteristics of
lenses, and does not indicate malfunction of the camera.
75
Appendix

are exposed or cut), immediately contact your original retailer or a CASIO
authorized service center to request repair. Continued use of a damaged power
cord creates the risk of fire, malfunction, and electric shock.
• The USB-AC adaptor becomes slightly warm during charging. This is normal and
does not indicate malfunction.
• Unplug the power cord from the power outlet when you are not using the USB-AC
adaptor.
• Never use detergent to clean the power cord (especially the plug).
• Never cover the USB-AC adaptor with a blanket, etc. Doing so creates the risk of
fire.

Appendix
Charging Precautions
. If the camera’s back lamp starts flashing green at high speed...
• Ambient temperature or the temperature of the battery may be either too high or
too low. Disconnect the USB cable and wait until temperature is within the
allowable charging range before trying again.
• Battery contacts may be dirty. Wipe them with a dry cloth.
• Try connecting to a different computer USB port. Depending on the setup of your
computer, you may not be able to charge the camera’s battery over a USB
connection.
If problems continue to occur after you perform the above steps, it could mean that
the battery is faulty. Contact your nearest CASIO authorized service center.
Battery Precautions
. Precautions during Use
• Operation provided by a battery under cold conditions is always less than operation
under normal temperatures. This is due to the characteristics of the battery, not the
camera.
• Charge the battery in an area where the temperature is within the range of 5°C to
35°C (41°F to 95°F). Outside this temperature range charging can take longer than
normal or even fail.
• Do not tear or remove the battery outer label.
• If a battery provides only very limited operation following a full charge, it probably
means the battery has reached the end of its service life. Replace the battery with a
new one.
. Storage Precautions
• Storing the battery for a long time while it is charged can cause deterioration of
battery characteristics. If you do not plan to use a battery for some time, fully use
up its charge before storing it.
• Always remove the battery from the camera when you are not using it. A battery left
in the camera can discharge and go dead, which will require some time to charge
when you need to use the camera.
• Store batteries in a cool, dry place (20°C (68°F) or lower).
• To prevent over discharging of an unused battery, fully charge it, and then load it in
the camera and fully use up the charge about once every six months.
78
Appendix
Using the Camera in another Country
. Precautions during Use
• The bundled USB-AC adaptor is designed for operation with any power supply in
the range of 100V to 240V AC, 50/60Hz. Note, however, that the shape of the
power cord plug depends on each country or geographic area. Before taking the
camera and USB-AC adaptor along on a trip, check with travel agent about the
power supply requirements in your destination(s).
• Do not connect the USB-AC adaptor to a power supply through a voltage converter
or similar device. Doing so can lead to malfunction.
. Extra Batteries
• Taking along extra fully charged batteries (NP-80) is recommended while on a trip
in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
Memory Card Precautions
. Using a Memory Card
Write enabled
• SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards, and SDXC
memory cards have a write protect switch. Use the
switch when you need to guard against accidentally
deleting data. Note, however, if you write protect an
Write disabled
SD memory card you must then turn write protection
off whenever you want to record to it, format it, or
delete any of its images.
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally during image playback, you can
restore normal operation by reformatting it (page 64). However, it is recommended
that you always take along multiple memory cards whenever using the camera far
away from the home or office.
• As you record data to and delete data from a memory card a number of times, it
loses its ability to retain data. Because of this, periodic re-formatting of a memory
card is recommended.
• Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause data to
become corrupted or even lost. Make sure that you always back up important data
on other media (CD-R, CD-RW, hard disk, etc.).
79
Appendix
. Discarding or Transferring Ownership of a Memory Card or the
Camera
The format and delete functions of the camera do not actually delete files from the
memory card. The original data remains on the card. Note that responsibility for the
data on a memory card lies with you. The following procedures are recommended
whenever you discard a memory card or the camera, or if you transfer ownership to
another party.
• When discarding a memory card, either physically destroy the memory card or use
commercially available data delete software to completely delete the data on the
memory card.
• When transferring ownership of a memory card to another party, use commercially
available data deletion software to completely delete the data on it.
• Use the format function (page 65) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.
About Folder and File Names
Your camera automatically creates specific directory of folders in the internal memory
cards to organize captured images and videos.
File Naming
File names begin with “CIMG” and followed by a 4-digit number that increases in
sequence. File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.
If the highest folder number is 999 and the highest file number exceeds 9999, the
camera will display the warning message “Folder cannot be created”. When this
happens, try one of the following ways:
• Reset the file number. See “Setting File Numbering” on page 64.
. About DCF
The following operations are supported for DCF-compliant images. Note, however,
that CASIO makes no performance guarantees concerning these operations.
• Transferring this camera’s DCF-compliant images to another manufacturer’s
camera and view them.
• Printing this camera’s DCF-compliant images on another manufacturer’s printer.
• Transferring another camera’s DCF-compliant images to this camera and view
them.

. Supported Image Files
• Image files shot with this camera
• DCF-compliant image files
This camera may not be able to display an image, even if it is DCF-compliant. When
displaying an image recorded on another camera, it may take a long time for the
image to appear on this camera’s monitor screen.
. Built-in Memory and Memory Card Data Handling Precautions
• Whenever copying memory contents to your computer, you should copy the DCIM
folder and all of its contents. A good way to keep track of multiple DCIM copies of
the DCIM folders it to change its name to a date or something similar after you copy
it to your computer. If you later decided to return the folder to the camera, however,
be sure to change its name back to DCIM. The camera is designed to recognize
only a root file with the name DCIM. Note the camera also will not be able to
recognize the folders inside the DCIM folder unless they have the names they
originally had when you copied them from the camera to your computer.
• Folders and files must be stored in accordance with the “Memory Folder Structure”
shown on page 81 in order for the camera to be able to recognize them correctly.
• You also can use a computer card adapter or a memory card reader/writer to
access camera files directly from the camera’s memory card.
• A Subject Image File (CIMG****.JPE) contains special image data. Never edit a
Subject Image File on your computer and transfer it back to the camera. Doing so
can cause abnormal camera operation.
NOTE
• Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your computer.
It may be unable to playback the data using the camera.
