LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high-precision technology that
provides a pixel yield of 99.99%. This means that some very small number of pixels
may not light or may remain lit at all times. This is due to the characteristics of the
liquid crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.
Take test shots
Before shooting your final image, shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is
recording correctly.

Precautions During Use
. Data Error Precautions
Your digital camera is manufactured using precision digital components. Any of the
following creates the risk of corruption of data in camera memory.
– Removing the battery or memory card while the camera is performing some
operation
– Removing the battery or memory card will cause Data Error while the LED indicator
is flashing green for data saving.
– Disconnecting the USB cable while communication is in progress
– Shooting with a battery that quickly goes low right after it is charged
• Shooting with a battery that quickly goes low right after it is charged can also
cause camera malfunction. Replace the battery with a new one immediately.
– Other abnormal operations
Any of the above conditions can cause an error message to appear on the monitor
screen (page 86). Perform the action indicated by the message that appears.
. Operating Environment
• Operating Temperature Requirements: 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F)
• Operating Humidity: 10 to 85% (non condensation)
• Do not place the camera in any of the following locations.
– In an area exposed to direct sunlight, or large amounts of moisture, dust, or sand
– Near heating or cooling devices, or in other areas subjected to extreme changes
in temperature or humidity
– Inside of a motor vehicle on a hot day, or in an area subjected to strong vibration
. Condensation
Sudden and extreme temperature changes, such as when the camera is moved from
the outdoors on a cold winter day into a warm room, can cause water droplets called
“condensation” to form on the interior and the exterior of the camera, which creates
the risk of malfunction. To prevent condensation from forming seal the camera in a
plastic bag before changing locations. Then leave the bag sealed to allow the air
inside to naturally change to the same temperature as the air in the new location.
After that, remove the camera from the bag and open the battery cover for a few
hours.
79
Appendix
. Lens
• Never apply too much force when cleaning the surface of the lens. Doing so can
scratch the lens surface and cause malfunction.
• You may sometimes notice some distortion in certain types of images, such as a
slight bend in lines that should be straight. This is due to the characteristics of
lenses, and does not indicate malfunction of the camera.
. Caring for your camera
• Never touch the lens or flash window with your fingers. Finger smudges, dirt, and
other foreign matter on the lens or flash window can interfere with proper operation
of the camera. Use a blower or other means to keep the lens and flash window free
of dirt and dust, and wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth.
• To clean the camera, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
. Old Rechargeable Battery Handling Precautions
• Insulate the positive and negative terminals with tape, etc.
• Do not peel the covering off of the battery.
• Do not try to take the battery apart.
. Discarding or Transferring Ownership of a Memory Card or the
Camera
The format and delete functions of the camera do not actually delete files from the
memory card. The original data remains on the card. Note that responsibility for the
data on a memory card lies with you. The following procedures are recommended
whenever you discard a memory card or the camera, or if you transfer ownership to
another party.
• When discarding a memory card, either physically destroy the memory card or use
commercially available data delete software to completely delete the data on the
memory card.
• When transferring ownership of a memory card to another party, use commercially
available data deletion software to completely delete the data on it.
• Use the format function (page 66) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.
. Other Precautions
The camera becomes slightly warm during use. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.

Appendix
Power Supply
Charging
. If the camera’s LED indicator starts flashing green at high speed...
• Ambient temperature or the temperature of the battery may be either too high or
too low. Disconnect the USB cable and wait until temperature is within the
allowable charging range before trying again.
• Battery contacts may be dirty. Wipe them with a dry cloth.
• Try connecting to a different computer USB port. Depending on the setup of your
computer, you may not be able to charge the camera’s battery over a USB
connection.
If problems continue to occur after you perform the above steps, it could mean that
the battery is faulty. Contact your nearest CASIO authorized service center.
Battery Precautions
. Precautions during Use
• Operation provided by a battery under cold conditions is always less than operation
under normal temperatures. This is due to the characteristics of the battery, not the
camera.
• Charge the battery in an area where the temperature is within the range of 10°C to
30°C (50°F to 86°F). Outside this temperature range charging can take longer than
normal or even fail.
• Do not tear or remove the battery outer label.
• If a battery provides only very limited operation following a full charge, it probably
means the battery has reached the end of its service life. Replace the battery with a
new one.
. Storage Precautions
• Storing the battery for a long time while it is charged can cause deterioration of
battery characteristics. If you do not plan to use a battery for some time, fully use
up its charge before storing it.
• Always remove the battery from the camera when you are not using it. A battery left
in the camera can discharge and go dead, which will require some time to charge
when you need to use the camera.
• Store batteries in a cool, dry place (20°C (68°F) or lower).
• To prevent over discharging of an unused battery, fully charge it, and then load it in
the camera and fully use up the charge about once every six months.
82
Appendix
Using the Camera in another Country
. Precautions during Use
• The bundled USB-AC adaptor is designed for operation with any power supply in
the range of 100V to 240V AC, 50/60Hz. Note, however, that the shape of the
power cord plug depends on each country or geographic area. Before taking the
camera and USB-AC adaptor along on a trip, check with travel agent about the
power supply requirements in your destination(s).
• Do not connect the USB-AC adaptor to a power supply through a voltage converter
or similar device. Doing so can lead to malfunction.
. Extra Batteries
• Taking along extra fully charged batteries (NP-80) is recommended while on a trip
in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
Using a Memory Card
See page 16 for information about supported memory cards and how to load a
memory card.
. Using a Memory Card
• SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards, and SDXC
Write enabled
memory cards have a write protect switch. Use the
switch when you need to guard against accidentally
deleting data. Note, however, if you write protect an SD
memory card you must then turn write protection off
Write disabled
whenever you want to record to it, format it, or delete
any of its images.
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally during image playback, you can
restore normal operation by reformatting it (page 66). However, it is recommended
that you always take along multiple memory cards whenever using the camera far
away from the home or office.
• As you record data to and delete data from a memory card a number of times, it
loses its ability to retain data. Because of this, periodic re-formatting of a memory
card is recommended.
• Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause data to
become corrupted or even lost. Make sure that you always back up important data
on other media (CD-R, CD-RW, hard disk, etc.).
83
Appendix
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
• Certain types of memory cards can slow down processing speed. Whenever
possible use an Ultra High-Speed Type memory card. Note, however, that not all
operations can be guaranteed even if an Ultra High-Speed Type memory card is
used. Certain movie quality settings can result in too much time being required to
record data, which can result in breaks in the image and/or audio during playback.
If this happens, the » and Y will flash on the monitor screen.
About Folder and File Names
Your camera automatically creates specific directory of folders in the internal memory
(or memory card) to organize captured images and videos.
File Naming
File names begin with “CIMG” and followed by a 4-digit number that increases in
sequence. File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.
If the highest folder number is 999 and the highest file number exceeds 9999, the
camera will display the warning message “Folder cannot be created”. When this
happens, try one of the following ways:
• Reset the file number. See “Setting File Numbering” on page 65.
. About DCF
The following operations are supported for DCF-compliant images. Note, however,
that CASIO makes no performance guarantees concerning these operations.
• Transferring this camera’s DCF-compliant images to another manufacturer’s
camera and view them.
• Printing this camera’s DCF-compliant images on another manufacturer’s printer.
• Transferring another camera’s DCF-compliant images to this camera and view
them.

• Image files shot with this camera
• DCF-compliant image files
This camera may not be able to display an image, even if it is DCF-compliant. When
displaying an image recorded on another camera, it may take a long time for the
image to appear on this camera’s monitor screen.
. Built-in Memory and Memory Card Data Handling Precautions
• Whenever copying memory contents to your computer, you should copy the DCIM
folder and all of its contents. A good way to keep track of multiple DCIM copies of
the DCIM folders it to change its name to a date or something similar after you copy
it to your computer. If you later decided to return the folder to the camera, however,
be sure to change its name back to DCIM. The camera is designed to recognize
only a root file with the name DCIM. Note the camera also will not be able to
recognize the folders inside the DCIM folder unless they have the names they
originally had when you copied them from the camera to your computer.
• Folders and files must be stored in accordance with the “Memory Folder Structure”
shown on page 85 in order for the camera to be able to recognize them correctly.
• You also can use a computer card adapter or a memory card reader/writer to
access camera files directly from the camera’s memory card.
NOTE
• Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your computer.
It may be unable to playback the data using the camera.
