Safety Instructions
Children
Electrical devices do not belong in the hands of children. Do not
allow children to use electrical devices when not under supervision.
Children may not comprehend the presence of potential risks.
Rechargeable batteries and small parts represent potential choking
hazards. Keep batteries out of reach of children. If a rechargeable
battery is swallowed, seek medical help immediately. Keep all
packaging away from children as this can cause suffocation.
Charger and Rechargeable Battery
Insert the rechargeable battery with the correct polarity. Never
throw a rechargeable battery into fire. Remove the rechargeable
battery when the device is not to be used for a long time.
Danger of Explosion!
Non-intended use may cause explosion and danger to life. Only
replace the rechargeable battery with an equivalent or a type
recommended by the manufacturer. Never replace any batteries in
an explosion-sensitive environment. While inserting or removing
the batteries a spark may be produced causing an explosion.
Explosion-sensitive areas will normally (but not always) be labelled.
These include fuel storage areas such as below deck on a boat,
fuel line or tank areas, environments where the air contains
inflammable substances (e.g. cereals, dust or metal powder, etc.)
and any areas where you should normally switch off your car
engine.
Respect the environment. Old rechargeable batteries do not belong
in with domestic waste. They must be handed in to a collection
point for old batteries.
Cables
Always hold cables by the plug and never pull on the cable itself.
Never hold the power cord with wet hands as this may cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Never place the device, heavy
objects or furniture on the cable and take care that the cord does
not become trapped, especially at the plug and sockets. Never
English - 5
Safety Instructions

or an electric shock. Inspect the power cord from time to time. Do
not use an adapter plug or extension cable that does not meet the
required safety standards.

way: for example, when the charger or the housing of the DV1000HD is damaged, when liquid or objects have entered the
device, when the product has been exposed to rain or moisture,
when the product does not work normally or if the product has been
dropped. If you notice any smoke, unusual noise or strange smells,
switch off the device immediately and unplug the power cord from
the power supply. In these cases the device should not be used
further and should be inspected by authorized service personnel.
Please contact qualified personnel when servicing is needed.

Viewing Recordings on a Television Screen
Any recordings that you can view on the camcorder display can
also be played back on a regular TV set. For this, your television
set must have an appropriate Video In connector.
Depending on the connectors available on the TV set, you can use
the AV cable or the HDMI cable. The HDMI cable will provide digital
picture and sound and therefore offers the best quality.
Connecting via the HDMI Cable
1. Please make sure that your camcorder is powered off.
2. Open the cover of the ports (14) and (15) and insert the smaller
connector of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port (15) of your
camcorder.
3. Plug the larger connector of the HDMI cable into the HDMI
receptacle of your TV set.
4. Select the HDMI channel corresponding to the above input
connectors on your TV set. If necessary, read the User Manual
of your TV set for more information on how to do this.
5. Press the On/Off button (9) to power the camcorder on. The
device display remains off while the picture will be shown on the
TV Screen.
6. Further operation is as usual, the only difference is that the
