Cautions for Use
ª About condensation
If you turn the Camcorder on when condensation
occurs on the head or the tape, condensation
Indication [3] (yellow or red) is displayed on the
viewfinder or the LCD monitor and the messages
[3DEW DETECT] or [3EJECT TAPE] (only
when the tape is inserted) appear. If so, follow the
procedure below.
3 in yellow:
Dew is slightly adhering on the head or the tape.
3 in red:
Dew is adhering on the head or the tape.
1 Remove the tape if it is inserted.
≥It takes about 20 seconds to open the
cassette holder. This is not a malfunction.
2 Leave the Camcorder with the cassette
cover closed to cool or warm it to the
ambient temperature.
When [3] in yellow
≥You cannot use the Tape Recording/
Playback Mode. Leave the Camcorder for
about 30 minutes.
≥However, you can use the Card Recording
Mode or Picture Playback Mode when a
cassette is not inserted.
When [3] in red
≥The power Lamp blinks for about 1 minute
and then the Camcorder automatically turns
off. Leave it for about 2 to 3 hours.
3 Turn the Camcorder on again, set it to the
Tape Recording/Playback Mode and then
check if the condensation indication
disappears.
Especially in cold areas, moisture may be frozen.
If so, it may take more time before the
condensation indication disappears.
Watch for condensation even before the
condensation Indication is displayed.
≥The condensation indication may not appear
depending on circumstances. When
condensation occurs on the lens or the
Camcorder, it may also occur on the head and
the tape. Do not open the cassette cover.
When the lens is fogged:

ª About dirty heads
If video heads (the parts that closely contact
with the tape) become dirty, normal recording
and playback are not properly performed.
Clean the heads with the digital video head
cleaner.
≥Insert the head cleaner into the Camcorder, set
it to the Tape Playback Mode, and play it back
for about 10 to 20 seconds. (If you do not stop
the playback, it automatically stops about
30 seconds later.)
≥We recommend cleaning the heads periodically.
If the heads become dirty, “NEED HEAD
CLEANING” appears during recording. During
playback, moreover, the following symptoms
appear.
≥Mosaic-like noise appears partially or the
sound is interrupted.
≥Black or blue mosaic-like horizontal stripes
appear.
When normal playback cannot be performed
even after the head cleaning
One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another
cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

Explanation of terms
ª Automatic white balance
White balance adjustment recognizes the color of
light and adjusts so the white color will become a
pure white. The Camcorder determines the hue of
light that comes through the lens and white
balance sensor, thereby judging the recording
condition, and selects the closest hue setting.
This is called automatic white balance
adjustment. However, since the Camcorder only
stores white color information under several light
sources, automatic white balance adjustment
does not function normally under the other light
sources.

ª White balance
The image recorded by the Camcorder may
become bluish or reddish under the influence of
light sources. To avoid such phenomena, adjust
the white balance.
White balance adjustment determines the white
color under different light sources. By recognizing
which is the white color under sunlight and which
is the white color under a fluorescent lamp, the
Camcorder can adjust the balance among the
other colors.
Since white color is the reference of all colors
(light), the Camcorder can record pictures in a
natural hue if it can recognize the reference white
color.
ª Auto focus
Auto focus automatically moves the focusing lens
forward and backward inside the Camcorder to
bring the subject into focus.
Auto focus has the following characteristics.
≥Adjusts so that the vertical lines of a subject are
seen more clearly.
≥Attempts to bring an object with higher contrast
into focus.
≥Focuses on the screen center only.
Due to these characteristics, auto focus does not
work correctly in the following situations. Record
pictures in the manual focus mode.
Recording a subject with one end located
closer to the Camcorder and the other end
farther away from it
≥As auto focus adjusts at the center of an
image, it may be impossible to focus on a
subject that is located in both the foreground
and background.
Recording a subject behind dirty or dusty
glass
≥The subject behind the glass will not be
focused because the focus is on the dirty
glass.
Recording a subject that is surrounded by
objects with glossy surfaces or by highly
reflective objects
≥The recording subject may become blurry
because the Camcorder focuses on the
objects with glossy surfaces or on highly
reflective objects.
Recording a subject in dark surroundings
≥The Camcorder cannot focus correctly
because the light information that comes
