O If the adapter is used close to a TV, it may cause picture interference.
Move the
adapter away from the TV or the antenna cable.
O Do not connect any products that are not expressly recommended

and reconnect the power cord while charging a battery pack.
Charging may stop. The battery pack may not be charged correctly even if the
CHARGE
indicator is continuously
on. The battery pack may also not be
charged correctly when a power outage occurs during charging.
Remove the
battery pack and attach it back to the camcorder.
O When the power adapter or the battery pack is defective, the CHARGE
indicator flashes rapidly (at about 2 flashes/second)
and charging stops.

O We recommend
charging the battery pack in temperatures
between 10 °C and
30 °C (50 °F and 86 °F). Outside the temperature
range of 0 °C to 40 °C (32 °F
to 104 °F), the charging will not start. If the battery temperature
goes outside
this temperature
range while charging, the CHARGE indicator will start flashing
rapidly and the charging will stop.
O A lithium ion battery pack can be charged at any charge state. Unlike
conventional
battery packs, you do not need to completely
use or discharge it
before charging.
O We recommend
that you prepare battery packs 2 to 3 times longer than you
think you might need.
O To conserve battery power, turn off the camcorder instead of leaving it in record
pause mode.
