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 Lithium-ion is vulnerable in
this happens, place the
colder temperatures.
battery pack in your pocket
or other warm, protected
place for a short time, then
re-attach 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.)
For other notes, 墌 pg. 38.
Grip Adjustment
1 Adjust the velcro strip.
2 Pass your right hand through the loop and grasp the
grip.
3 Adjust your thumb and fingers through the grip to
easily operate the Recording Start/Stop Button, Power
Switch and Power Zoom Lever. Be sure to fasten the
velcro strip to your preference.

If recording starts from the end of a previously recorded
scene, the time code continues from the last time code
number.
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

Exposure Control
Manual exposure control is recommended in the
following situations:
● When shooting using reverse lighting or when the
background is too bright.
● When shooting on a reflective natural background such as
at the beach or when skiing.
● When the background is overly dark or the subject is bright.
Like the pupil of the human eye, the iris contracts in welllit environments to keep too much light from entering,
and dilates in dim environments to allow in more light.
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.
Before doing the following, perform steps 1 – 5 in

● 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 time is based on room temperature of 20°C
(68°F).
● 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 wellventilated areas.
● The following operation stops charging:
• Set the Power Switch to “PLAY”, “A” or “M”.
• Disconnect the AC Adapter from the camcorder.
• Unplug the AC Adapter from the AC outlet.
• Detach the battery from the camcorder.
● Using the optional AA-V40U AC Power Adapter/Charger,
you can charge the BN-V408U/V416U/V428U battery pack
without the camcorder. However, it cannot be used as an
AC Adapter.
● When you use the LCD monitor outdoors in direct sunlight,
the LCD monitor may be difficult to see. If this happens, use
the viewfinder instead.
● The cassette holder cannot be opened unless a power
supply is attached.
● There may be a delay after you open the cassette holder
cover until the cassette holder opens. Do not use force.
● Once the cassette holder is closed, it recedes
automatically. Wait until it recedes completely before
closing the cassette holder cover.
● When the Recording Start/Stop button is pressed, it may
take a few seconds before actual recording starts. The “T”
indicator starts rotating when the camcorder actually starts
recording.
● The time required to calculate and display the remaining
tape length, and the accuracy of the calculation, may vary
according to the type of tape used.
● “TAPE END” appears when the tape reaches its end, and
the power goes off automatically if left in this condition for 5
minutes. “TAPE END” also appears when a cassette at its
end is loaded.
Loading/Unloading A Cassette (pg. 10)
● It takes a few seconds for the cassette holder to open. Do
not apply force.
● If you wait a few seconds and the cassette holder does not
open, close the cassette holder cover and try again. If the
cassette holder still does not open, turn the camcorder off
then on again.
● If the tape does not load properly, open the cassette holder
cover fully and remove the cassette. A few minutes later,
insert it again.
● When the camcorder is suddenly moved from a cold place
to a warm environment, wait a short time before opening
the cassette holder cover.
● Closing the cassette holder cover before the cassette
holder recedes may cause damage to the camcorder.
● Even when the camcorder is switched off, a cassette can
be loaded or unloaded. After the cassette holder is closed
with the camcorder switched off, however, it may not
recede. It is recommended to turn the power on before
loading or unloading.
● When resuming recording, once you open the cassette
holder cover a blank portion will be recorded on the tape or
a previously recorded scene will be erased (recorded over)
regardless of whether the cassette holder came out or not.

The provided AC Adapter features automatic voltage
selection in the AC range from 110 V to 240 V.
Cassettes
USING HOUSEHOLD AC PLUG ADAPTER
In case of connecting the unit’s power cord to an AC wall
outlet other than American National Standard C73 series
type use an AC plug adapter, called a “Siemens Plug”, as
shown.
For this AC plug adapter, consult your nearest JVC
dealer.
... make sure the cassette bears the Mini DV mark.
... be aware that recording onto prerecorded tapes
automatically erases the previously recorded video and
audio signals.
... make sure the cassette is positioned properly when
inserting.
... do not load and unload the cassette repeatedly without
allowing the tape to run at all. This slackens the tape and
can result in damage.
... do not open the front tape cover. This exposes the tape to
fingerprints and dust.
Plug adapter
To properly use and store your cassettes, be sure to read
the following cautions:
● During use…
● Store cassettes…
The supplied battery pack is
a lithium-ion battery. Before
using the supplied battery
pack or an optional battery
pack, be sure to read the
following cautions:
● 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 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 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.

● To prevent damage to the LCD monitor, DO NOT…
... push it strongly or apply any shocks.
... place the camcorder with the LCD monitor on the bottom.
● To prolong service life…
... avoid rubbing it with coarse cloth.
● Be aware of the following phenomena for LCD
monitor use. These are not malfunctions…
... While using the camcorder, the surface around the LCD
monitor and/or the back of the LCD monitor may heat up.
... If you leave power on for a long time, the surface around
the LCD monitor becomes hot.

”
In such cases, use an optional cleaning cassette. Insert it and
play back. If the cassette is used more than once
consecutively, damage to the video heads may result. After
the camcorder plays back for about 20 seconds, it stops
automatically. Also refer to the cleaning cassette’s
instructions.
If, after using the cleaning cassette, the problems still exist,
consult your nearest JVC dealer.
Mechanical moving parts used to move the video heads and
video tape tend to become dirty and worn out over time. In
order to maintain a clear picture at all times, periodic checkups are recommended after using the unit for about 1,000
hours. For periodic check-ups please consult your nearest
JVC dealer.
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.
● 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.

CAUTIONS EN
● 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.
