About Batteries
To DC
connector
To AC outlet
DANGER! Do not attempt to take the batteries apart,
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.
Lithium-ion is vulnerable in colder temperatures.
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 reattach 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.)

TAPE RECORDING (cont.)
Time Code
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 ( pg. 56 – 60), 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” below in the following cases;

recorded tape.

FEATURE: Auto Focus
PURPOSE:
The camcorder’s Full Range AF system offers continuous shooting ability from close-up (as close as approx.
5 cm (2") to the subject) to infinity.
However, correct focus may not be obtainable in the situations listed below (in these cases use manual
focusing):
• When two subjects overlap in the same scene.
• When illumination is low.*
• When the subject has no contrast (difference in brightness and darkness), such as a flat, one-color
wall, or a clear, blue sky.*
• When a dark object is barely visible in the viewfinder.*
• When the scene contains minute patterns or identical patterns that are regularly repeated.
• When the scene is affected by sunbeams or light reflecting off the surface of a body of water.
• When shooting a scene with a high-contrast background.
* The following low-contrast warnings appear blinking: , ,
and
NOTES:
● If the lens is smeared or blurred, accurate focusing is not possible. Keep the lens clean, wiping with a piece of soft
cloth if it gets dirty. When condensation occurs, wipe with a soft cloth or wait for it to dry naturally.
● When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom out first (墌 pg. 18). If zoomed-in in the auto focus mode, the
camcorder may automatically zoom out depending on the distance between the camcorder and the subject. This
will not occur when “TELE MACRO” (墌 pg. 46) is activated.
FEATURE: Manual Focus
PURPOSE:
To obtain correct focus.
OPERATION:
1) If you are using the viewfinder, you should already have made the necessary viewfinder adjustments
(墌 pg. 10).
2) Set the Power Switch to “ MANUAL ” while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch, then press
FOCUS (墌 pgs. 76 and 77, # FOCUS Button). The manual focus indicator appears.
3) To focus on a farther subject, rotate the MENU/BRIGHT wheel towards “+”. “ ” appears and blinks.
To focus on a nearer subject, rotate the MENU/BRIGHT wheel towards “–”. “ ” appears and blinks.
4) Press the MENU/BRIGHT wheel in. Focus adjustment is complete.
To reset to Auto Focus, press FOCUS twice or set the Power Switch to “ AUTO ”.
If FOCUS is pressed once, the camcorder will enter the focus adjustment mode again.
NOTES:
● Be sure to focus the lens in the maximum telephoto position when you use the Manual Focus mode. If you focus in
on a subject in the wide-angle position, sharply focused images cannot be obtained when zoomed up because the
depth-of-field is reduced at longer focal lengths.
● When the focus level cannot be adjusted any further or closer, “ ” or “ ” will blink.

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.
When the subject is close, keep the iris locked. Even
when the subject moves away from you, the image
will not darken or brighten.

White Balance Adjustment
Manual White Balance Operation
A term that refers to the correctness of color
reproduction under various lighting. If the white
balance is correct, all other colors will be accurately
reproduced.
The white balance is usually adjusted automatically.
However, more advanced camcorder operators
control this function manually to achieve a more
professional color/tint reproduction.
Perform Manual White Balance when shooting under
various types of lighting.

● In step 2, it may be difficult to focus on the white paper.
In such a case, adjust focus manually (墌 pg. 41).
● A subject can be shot under various types of lighting
conditions indoors (natural, flourescent, candlelight,
etc.). Because the color temperature is different
depending on the light source, the subject tint will differ
depending on the white balance settings. Use this
function for a more natural result.
● Once you adjust white balance manually, the setting is
retained even if the power is turned off or the battery

Remote) is set to operate with your brand of VCR
(see VCR CODE LIST), but can also be performed by
operating the VCR manually.
Use the optional RM-V700U remote control.
Before operation, make sure the battery is installed in
the remote control (墌 pg. 53).

NOTES
❍ Perform charging where the temperature is between 10°C and 35°C (50°F
and 95°F). 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F) is the ideal temperature range for
charging. If the environment is too cold, charging may be incomplete.
❍ Charging times are for a fully discharged battery pack.
❍ Charging time varies according to the ambient temperature and the status of
the battery pack.
❍ To avoid interference with reception, do not use the AC Adapter near a radio.
❍ Since the AC Adapter processes electricity internally, it becomes warm
during use. Be sure to use it only in well-ventilated areas.
❍ The following operation stops charging:
• Set the Power Switch to “PLAY”, “ AUTO ” or “ MANUAL ”.
• Disconnect the AC adapter from the camcorder.
• Unplug the AC adapter from the AC outlet.
• Detach the battery from the camcorder.

1. To avoid hazards . . .
Terminals
... 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

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:

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 ................... –10°C to 30°C (14°F to 86°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 . . .

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 Adapter, etc.) and
wait a few minutes and then re-connect it and
proceed as usual from the beginning.
