Using the Batteries
Your PhotoPC 750Z comes with four Ni-MH
rechargeable batteries and the Ni-MH Battery
Charger. Though you can use four AA (LR6) alkaline
batteries (not included), the rechargeable batteries
help you save time and money you might otherwise
spend buying replacement alkaline batteries. Charge
your new rechargable batteries before installing them
in the camera.
Keep the following points in mind when using these
batteries.
❏
1-4
To fully charge batteries that have never been
used or haven’t been used for a long time, you
may have to charge them two or three times.
❏
Use batteries regularly so they continue to charge
well. Batteries which have not been used for a
long time will return to normal with regular use.
❏
Discharge batteries completely before recharging
them. If your batteries are not completely drained
of power, you may not be able to recharge them
fully.

Replace rechargable batteries when battery
power runs out soon after recharging.
Rechargeable batteries wear out with repeated
use. As their charging capacity decreases, your
camera’s operating time becomes shorter.
Charging the batteries
The Ni-MH Battery Charger charges your Ni-MH
rechargeable batteries quickly to last longer in your
camera.
Before charging your batteries, be sure to read the
safety instructions in “When using the charger and
batteries” on page 4.
Follow these steps to charge your Ni-MH batteries.

After the lights go off, unplug the charger. To
avoid overcharging, don’t leave the charger
plugged in for long periods of time after the lights
go off.

Using the AC adapter
Using CompactFlash Memory Cards
The PhotoPC 750Z comes with 4 MB of internal
memory, which holds up to approximately 3 HyPict
quality (1600 × 1200 pixels), approximately 5 super
fine quality pictures (1280 × 960 pixels), approximately
10 fine quality pictures (1280 × 960 pixels), or
approximately 35 standard quality pictures (640 × 480
pixels). You can add to the camera’s storage capacity
by installing an optional CompactFlash Card. The
storage capacity of the camera’s internal memory and

Picture problems
If you are not satisfied with the pictures you get from
your PhotoPC 750Z, you may need to adjust some of
the camera’s settings, or you may need to brush up on
your photography techniques. Read the suggestions
listed below and give them a try.
Your pictures images have poor image quality when
displayed on the screen or printed out.
The PhotoPC 750Z captures images in 24-bit color
(16 million colors). Your pictures will not display
maximum image quality if your monitor or your
computer's video controller does not support this
color depth. You may need to upgrade your
system to achieve the best possible image quality.
If your pictures look better on the screen than
when you print them out, you may need to
upgrade your printer. An EPSON color ink jet
printer, for example, will provide excellent image
quality.
