ENGLISH
Make a backup of important recorded data
Make a trial recording
Before the actual recording of important data, make a trial recording and play back the
recorded data to check that the video and sound have been recorded correctly.
Reset the camera if it does not operate correctly
This camera uses a microcomputer. Factors such as background noise and interference
can prevent it from operating correctly. If the camera does not operate correctly, reset the
camera. ( pg. 33)
Precautions on handling batteries
• Be sure to use the JVC BN-VF808U/VF815U/VF823U battery packs.

camera for repair. If one of them is not included, the cause of the malfunction cannot be
diagnosed, and the camera cannot be repaired.
• Recorded data may be erased while the camera is being repaired or inspected. Back up
all data before requesting repairs or inspections.
Because the camera may be used for demonstration in a shop,
the demonstration mode is set to [ON] by default
To deactivate the demonstration mode, set [DEMO MODE] to [OFF] from the MENU.
When connecting the camera to other devices using an
optional DV cable, make sure to follow the procedure below.
Connecting the cable incorrectly may cause malfunctions to
the camera and/or other devices.*

To avoid hazards
... do not burn.
... do not short-circuit the terminals. Keep it away
from metallic objects when not in use. 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, as this may cause the battery
to overheat, explode or catch fire.
... use only specified chargers.
• To prevent damage and prolong service life
... do not subject to unnecessary shock.
... charge within the temperature range of 10°C
to 35°C (50°F to 95°F). 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.
