or expose them to flame or excessive heat, as it may
cause a fire or explosion.
WARNING! Do not allow the battery or its terminals
to come in contact with metals, as this can result in
a short circuit and possibly start a fire.
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.
(If you’re using a heating pad, make sure the battery
pack does not come in direct contact with it.)

To store the date/time in memory, the clock’s
rechargeable lithium battery is integrated in the
camcorder. While the camcorder is connected to an
AC outlet using the AC Power Adapter/Charger, or
while the battery pack attached to the camcorder
continues to supply power, the clock’s rechargeable
lithium battery is always charged. However, if the
camcorder is not used for approx. 3 months, the
clock’s lithium battery will become discharged and
the date/time stored in memory will be lost. When
this occurs, first connect the camcorder to an AC
outlet using the AC Power Adapter/Charger for over
24 hours to charge the clock’s rechargeable lithium
battery. Then perform the date/time setting before
using the camcorder.
Note that the camcorder can be used without setting
the date/time.
NOTE:
Even if you select “CLOCK ADJ.”, if the parameter is
not highlighted, the camcorder’s internal clock
continues to operate. Once you move the highlight
bar to the first date/time parameter (month), the
clock stops. When you finish setting the minute and
press the MENU Wheel in, the date and time begin
operation from the date and time you have just set.

Time Code
Recording From The Middle Of A Tape
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.
To perform Random Assemble Editing (墌 pg. 62 –
66), time code is necessary. 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.
● When shooting again after shooting a scene then
opening/closing the cassette holder cover.
1) Play back a tape or use Blank Search (墌 pg. 25)
to find the spot at which you want to start
recording, then engage the Still Playback mode.

Backlight Compensation
Like the pupil of the human eye, the iris contracts in
well-lit environments to keep too much light from
entering, and dilates in dim environments to allow
in more light.
Use this function in the following situations:
● When shooting a moving subject.
● When the distance to the subject changes (so its
size in the LCD monitor or the viewfinder
changes), such as when the subject is backing
away.
● When shooting on a reflective natural background
such as at the beach or when skiing.
● When shooting objects under a spotlight.
● When zooming.
Backlight compensation brightens the subject
quickly.
Press BACK LIGHT. The
indicator is displayed
and the subject is brightened. If pressed again,
disappears and the brightness returns to the previous
level.
● Using the BACK LIGHT Button may cause the light
around the subject to become too bright and the
subject to become white.
● Backlight compensations is also available when
the Power Switch is set to “A”.

Press R.A.EDIT ON/OFF to make the Random
Assemble Editing menu disappear, then press the
MENU Wheel in. The Menu Screen appears.
5
Rotate the MENU Wheel to select “t VIDEO”,
and press it. The VIDEO Menu appears.
6
Rotate the MENU Wheel to select “SYNCHRO”,
and press it. The value for “SYNCHRO” is
highlighted.
7
Based on the diagnostics performed, you can
now advance the VCR’s record timing by rotating
the MENU Wheel towards “+”. You can also
delay the VCR’s record timing by rotating the
MENU Wheel towards “–”.
The adjustment range is from –1.3 to +1.3
seconds, in 0.1-second increments.
Press the MENU Wheel in to finish the setting.
8
Rotate the MENU Wheel to select “BRETURN”,
and press it twice.
Now perform Random Assemble Editing
beginning with step 6 on page 64.
R.A.EDIT
ON/OFF
Some VCRs make the transition from Record-Pause
to Record mode faster than others. Even if you begin
editing for the camcorder and the VCR at exactly the
same time, you may lose scenes you wanted, or find
that you have recorded scenes you did not want. For
a cleanly edited tape, confirm and adjust the timing
of the camcorder against your VCR.
Diagnosing VCR/Camcorder Timing
1
Play back the tape in the camcorder, then point
the remote control at the camcorder’s remote
sensor and press R.A.EDIT ON/OFF.

Perform Random Assemble Editing on Program 1
only. In order to check VCR and camcorder
timing, select the beginning of a scene transition
as your Edit-In point.
3
Play back the dubbed scene.
● If any images from the scene prior to the
transition you chose for your Edit-In point were
recorded, that means your VCR moves too
quickly from Record-Pause to Record mode.
● If the scene you tried to dub starts in progress,
the VCR is slow to start recording.
NOTES:
● Before performing actual Random Assemble
Editing, do a few Random Assemble Editing trial
runs to check whether the value you have input is
appropriate or not, and make adjustments
accordingly.
● Depending on the recorder, there may be
situations where the timing difference cannot be
fully corrected.

exhausted. Replace them with fresh ones.
Use only the following batteries: AAA (R03) size x 2
Please make note of the following rules for battery
use. When misused, the batteries can leak or
explode.
1. When replacing batteries, refer to page 58.
2. Do not use any different size of batteries from
those specified.
3. Be sure to install batteries in the correct
direction.
4. Do not use rechargeable batteries.
5. Do not expose the batteries to excessive heat as
they can leak or explode.
6. Do not dispose of the batteries in a fire.
7. Remove the batteries from the unit if it is to be
stored for an extended period to avoid battery
leakage which can cause malfunctions.
8. Do not recharge the provided batteries.
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
Terminals
cautions:
1. To avoid hazards…
... 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 chart
below. 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.
NOTES:
● 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 ..........–20°C to 50°C (–4°F to 122°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.

• 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.
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

How To Handle A CD-ROM
• Take care not to soil or scratch the mirror surface
(opposite to the printed surface). Do not write
anything or put a sticker on either the front or back
surface. If the CD-ROM gets dirty, gently wipe it
with a soft cloth outward from the center hole
using a circular motion.
• Do not use conventional disc cleaners or cleaning
spray.
• Do not bend the CD-ROM or touch its mirror
surface.
• Do not store your CD-ROM in a dusty, hot or
humid environment. Keep it away from direct
sunlight.
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 Power Adapter/
Charger, etc.) and wait a few minutes and then reconnect it and proceed as usual from the
beginning.
