Precautions
General precautions










Do not use or store the product in dusty, dirty, or sandy areas,
as its components may be damaged.
Do not store the product in a hot environment. High
temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage
batteries and warp or melt certain plastics.
Do not store the product in cold areas. When the product
warms up to its normal temperature, moisture can form inside;
this may damage the electronic circuits.
Do not attempt to open the casing or attempt your own repairs.
High-voltage internal components create the risk of electric
shock when exposed.
Do not drop or knock the product. Rough handling may
damage the internal components.
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents or strong
detergents to clean the product. Wipe the product with a
slightly damp soft cloth.
Do not fire the flash while it is too close to the subject's eyes.
Intense light from the flash can cause eye damage if it is fired
too close to the eyes. When using the flash, the camera should
be at least one meter from the eyes of the subject.
Do not open the battery cover while an image is being
recorded. Doing so will not only make storage of the current
image impossible, it can also corrupt other image data already
stored in file.
If the product or any of its accessories are not working
properly, take them to your nearest qualified service center.
The personnel there will assist you and if necessary, arrange
for the product to be repaired.
Test for proper operation before using the camera.
v
Notes on the LCD Screen
Caution must be observed when dealing with the fluid contained in
the LCD. Ensure that fluid does not leak if the screen becomes
cracked or damaged. If this occurs, follow these steps:



If the fluid makes contact with skin, wipe it with a clean cloth
then rinse with a large amount of water.
If the fluid makes contact with eyes, wash eyes with clean
water for at least 15 minutes and seek immediate medical
attention.
If the fluid is swallowed, first rinse mouth with water, then
drink a large amount of water and induce vomiting. Seek
immediately medical attention.
Operation conditions


This camera is designed for use in temperatures ranging from
0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F).
Do not use or keep the camera in the following areas:
- In areas subject to direct sunlight
- In areas subject to high humidity or dust

Power supply


vi
Use only the type of battery that came with your camera.
Using any other type of battery may damage the equipment
and invalidate the warranty.
Make sure that batteries are inserted correctly. Inserting the
batteries incorrectly can cause damage to the product and
possibly start a fire.


Remove the batteries to avoid fluid leakage if the camera is not
going to be used for a long time.
If one of the batteries is crushed or damaged, remove it
immediately to avoid the battery fluid from leaking.
