SAFETY-RELATED COMPONENT WARNING!!

COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED BY MARK

0

OR DOTTED

LINE WITH MARK

0

ON THE SCHEMATIC DIAGRAMS

AND IN THE PARTS LIST ARE CRITICAL TO SAFE

OPERATION. REPLACE THESE COMPONENTS WITH

SONY PARTS WHOSE PART NUMBERS APPEAR AS

SHOWN IN THIS MANUAL OR IN SUPPLEMENTS PUB-

LISHED BY SONY.

SAFETY CHECK-OUT

After correcting the original service problem, perform the following safety checks before releasing the set to the customer.

1. Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly-soldered connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes and bridges.

2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are

“pinched” or contact high-wattage resistors.

3. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly transistors, that were installed during a previous repair. Point them out to the customer and recommend their replacement.

– 2 –

4. Look for parts which, though functioning, show obvious signs of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and recommend their replacement.

5. Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified.

6. Flexible Circuit Board Repairing

• Keep the temperature of the soldering iron around 270 ˚C during repairing.

• Do not touch the soldering iron on the same conductor of the circuit board (within 3 times).

• Be careful not to apply force on the conductor when soldering or unsoldering.

NOTE FOR REPAIR

SERVICE NOTE

When remove a connector, don’t pull at wire of connector.

It is possible that a wire is snapped.

Make sure that the flat cable and flexible board are not cracked of bent at the terminal.

Do not insert the cable insufficiently nor crookedly.

When installing a connector, don’t press down at wire of connector.

It is possible that a wire is snapped.

Cut and remove the part of gilt which comes off at the point.

(Be careful or some pieces of gilt may be left inside)

[Discharging of the FLASH unit’s charging capacitor]

The charging capacitor of the FLASH unit is charged up to the maximum 300 V potential.

There is a danger of electric shock by this high voltage when the battery is handled by hand. The electric shock is caused by the charged voltage which is kept without discharging when the main power of the MVC-FD87/FD92 is simply turned off. Therefore, the remaining voltage must be discharged as described below.

Preparing the Short Jig

To preparing the short jig. a small clip is attached to each end of a resistor of 1 k

/1 W (1-215-869-11).

Wrap insulating tape fully around the leads of the resistor to prevent electrical shock.

1 k

/1 W

Discharging the Capacitor

Short-circuit between the positive and the negative terminals of charged capacitor with the short jig about 10 seconds.

R: 1 k

For the number of images you can record on a floppy disk or a

“Memory Stick”

See page 46.

Notes

When recording bright subjects, the color of the LCD screen may change after the

AE is locked. However, this will not affect the recorded image.

While the image is being recorded on a floppy disk or a “Memory Stick,” the access lamp lights. When this lamp is lit, do not shake or strike the camera. Also, do not turn the power off, not change the position of the MS/FD selector, or not remove the battery pack/floppy disk/“Memory Stick.” Otherwise, an image data breakdown may occur and the floppy disk or the “Memory Stick” may become unusable.

When you press the shutter button fully down at once, the camera starts recording after the automatic adjustment is complete. However, the recording cannot be carried out while the lamp (page 8) is flashing. (During this time, the camera is charging the flash.)

Checking the last recorded image (Quick Review)

You can check the last recorded image by clearing the menu bar from the screen

(page 39) and pressing b on the control button.

To return to the normal recording mode: press the shutter button lightly, or select

[RETURN] with b/B on the control button and then press the center z.

To delete the image: first select [DELETE] on the Quick Review screen with b/B on the control button and press the center z, and then select [OK] with v/V on the control button and press the center z.

Tips

The digital still camera saves recorded images as digital data. The format of the saved data is called as the file format. The formats that can be used with this camera are as follows:

JPEG format

Most digital still cameras, operating systems of computers, and browser software adopt this format. This format is able to compress files without appreciable deterioration. However, if the image is compressed and saved on repeated occasions, the image will deteriorate. This camera records still images using the

JPEG format for normal recording.

GIF format

Using this format, the image will not deteriorate even if the image is compressed and saved on repeated occasions. This format limits the number of colors to 256 colors. This camera records still images using the GIF format in Clip Motion

(page 47) or TEXT mode (page 51).

TIFF format

Stores shooting images without compression, so the image does not deteriorate.

Most of operating systems and applications correspond to this format. This camera records still images using the TIFF format for the TIFF mode (page 52).

MPEG format

This format is very typical for moving images. This camera records audio using the MPEG format for the moving images recording and the VOICE mode

(page 50).

Notes

If you try to record 55 images or more on a floppy disk, even if the remaining disk capacity is sufficient, “DISK FULL” appears on the LCD screen and you cannot record any more images.

If you try to record 3001 images or more on a “Memory Stick,” even if the remaining memory capacity of the

“Memory Stick” is sufficient, “NO

MEMORY SPACE” appears on the LCD screen and you cannot record any more images.

Tips

The size of the image is indicated by the pixel unit. The higher the number of pixels, the more information is included.

So, an image that is saved using a large number of pixels is suitable for a largeformat print and one that is saved using a smaller number of pixels is suitable for attaching to an E-mail. Normally, an image is recorded in the ratio of four to three to fit the monitor ratio. This camera can also record the image in the ratio of three to two to accommodate the most common printing paper size. This is the same ratio as the one used in photodeveloping shops.

Creating Clip Motion

Files

Clip Motion is an animation function that plays back still images in succession. Clip Motion images are played back on this camera at approximately 0.5 s intervals. The images are stored in GIF format, which is convenient for creating home pages or attaching images to an e-mail.

Notes

Reading and writing data takes more time than normal image recording.

Due to the limitations of the GIF format, the number of colors for Clip Motion images is reduced to 256 colors or less.

Therefore, the picture quality may deteriorate for some images.

The file size is reduced in MOBILE mode, so the picture quality deteriorates.

GIF files not created on this camera may not be displayed correctly.

Tips

Under normal recording conditions, the camera automatically makes various adjustments, such as those for the focus, iris, exposure, and white balance, as it shoots. However, you may not be able to carry out your desired shooting depending on shooting conditions. The program AE function provides you with near-optimum adjustments to suit your shooting situation.

Note

If a subject is under extremely bright or dark situations, or the flash is used, the exposure adjustment may not be effective.

Tips

Normally, the camera automatically adjusts the exposure. If the color of the image is too dark or bright as illustrated below, we recommend that you adjust the exposure manually. When the color of the image is too dark, set it toward +, and when it is too bright, set it toward –.

Additional information

Precautions

On cleaning

Cleaning the LCD screen

Wipe the screen surface with a cleaning cloth (not supplied) or an

LCD cleaning kit (not supplied) to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.

Cleaning the camera surface

Clean the camera surface with a soft cloth slightly moistened with water, then wipe the surface dry. Do not use any type of solvent such as thinner, alcohol or benzene as this may damage the finish or the casing.

After using your camera at the seashore or other dusty locations

Clean your camera carefully.

Otherwise, the salty air may corrode the metal fittings or dust may enter the inside of your camera, causing a malfunction.

On floppy disks

To protect data recorded on floppy disks, note the following:

Avoid storing floppy disks near magnets or magnetic fields such as those of speakers and televisions.

Otherwise, permanent erasure of disk data may result.

Avoid storing floppy disks in areas subject to direct sunlight or sources of high temperature, such as a heating device. Floppy disk warping or damage may result, rendering the disk useless.

Avoid contact with the disk’s surface by opening the disk shutter plate. If the disk’s surface becomes blemished, data may be rendered unreadable.

72

Avoid getting liquids on the floppy disk.

Be sure to use a floppy disk case to ensure protection of important data.

Even when you use a 3.5 inch 2HD floppy disk, image data may not be recorded and/or displayed depending on the using environment. In this case, use a disk of other brand.

On operating temperature

Your camera is designed for use between the temperatures of 0°C to

40°C (32°F to 104°F). Recording in extremely cold or hot places that exceed this range is not recommended.

On moisture condensation

If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense inside or outside the camera.

Should this occur, the camera will not operate properly.

Moisture condensation occurs easily when:

The camera is brought from a cold location such as a ski slope into a warmly heated room.

The camera is taken from an airconditioned room or car interior to the hot outdoors, etc.

How to prevent moisture condensation

When bringing the camera from a cold place to a warm place, seal the camera in a plastic bag and allow it to adapt to conditions at the new location over a period of time (about an hour).

Charging the built-in rechargeable lithium battery:

Connect your camera to house current (mains) using the AC power adaptor supplied with your camera, and leave your camera with the power turned off for more than 24 hours.

Or install the fully charged battery pack in your camera, and leave your camera with the power turned off for more than 24 hours.

If any problem occurs, unplug your camera and contact your nearest Sony dealer.

About “ InfoLITHIUM ” battery pack

What is the “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack?

The “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack is a lithium-ion battery pack that has functions for communicating information related to operating conditions between your camera and the AC power adaptor.

The “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack calculates the power consumption according to the operating conditions of your camera, and displays the remaining battery time in minutes.

Charging the battery pack

Be sure to charge the battery pack before you start using your camera.

We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10

°

C to 30

°

C (50

°

F to 86

°

F) until the POWER ON/OFF (CHG) lamp goes out, indicating that the battery pack is fully charged. If you charge the battery pack outside of this temperature range, you may not be able to efficiently charge the battery pack.

After charging is completed, either disconnect the AC power adaptor from the DC IN jack on your camera or remove the battery pack.

Effective use of the battery pack

Battery performance decreases in low-temperature surroundings. So, the time that the battery pack can be used is shorter in cold places. We recommend the following to use the battery pack longer:

— Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in your camera immediately before you start taking shots.

— Use the large capacity battery pack (NP-F550, optional).

Frequently using the LCD panel or frequently operating the zoom wears out the battery pack faster. We recommend using the large capacity battery pack (NP-F550, optional).

Be certain to turn the POWER switch to off when not taking shots or playing back on your camera.

We recommend have spare batteries handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and make a trial shots before taking the actual shots.

Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not waterresistant.

Remaining battery time indicator

If the power goes off although the battery remaining indicator indicates that the battery pack has enough power to operate, charge the battery pack fully again so that the indication on the battery remaining indicator is correct. Note, however, that the correct battery indication sometimes will not be restored if it is used in high temperatures for a long time or left in a fully charged state, or the battery pack is frequently used.

Regard the remaining battery time indication as the approximate shooting time.

The E mark indicating there is little remaining battery time sometimes flashes depending on the operating conditions or ambient temperature and environment even if the remaining battery time is 5 to 10 minutes.

How to store the battery pack

Even if the battery pack is not used for a long time, store it in a dry, cool place after fully charging it once per year and then using the battery pack up on your camera. This is to maintain the battery pack’s functions.

To use the battery pack up on your camera, leave the POWER switch to on in PLAY mode until the power goes off without a floppy disk or a

“Memory Stick” inserted.

Battery life

The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases little by little as you use it more and more, and as time passes. When the battery operating time is shortened considerably, a probable cause is that the battery pack has reached the end of its life. Please buy a new battery pack.

The battery life varies according to how it is stored and operating conditions and environment for each battery pack.
