Back Up High-Definition Images
on DVD Discs!
Video can easily be backed up on a DVD disc by connecting to
a separate DVD burner (CU-VD40).
• This DVD disc can then be played in the camera or a PC, but
not in a DVD player.
• If a CU-VD40 is used, the DVD burner can be connected
directly to a television so the disc can be played without using
the camera.
Edit High-Definition Images on a

the 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 cameras may be used

long time.
• The battery heats up during charging.
• When playing back a video file, the
image stops momentarily or the sound is
interrupted at junctions between scenes.

Cautions
AC Adapter
When using the AC adapter in areas other
than the USA
The provided AC adapter features automatic
voltage selection in the AC range from 110 V to
240 V.
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.
... fully charge and then fully discharge the
battery every 6 months when storing the
battery pack over a long period of time.
... remove from charger or powered unit when
not in use, as some machines use current
even when switched off.
Recording Medium
•
Be sure to follow the guidelines below
to prevent corruption or damage to your
recorded data.
• Do not bend or drop the recording medium, or
subject it to strong pressure, jolts or vibrations.
• Do not splash the recording medium with water.
• Do not use, replace, or store the recording
Plug Adapter
•
Battery Packs
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:
•
Terminals
•
•
• When formatting or erasing data using the
camera, only the file administration information
is changed. The data is not completely erased
from the hard disk. If you want to completely
erase all of the data, we recommend either
using commercially available software that
is specially designed for that purpose, or
by physically destroying the camera with a
hammer etc.
•
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 (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 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.

medium in locations that are exposed to strong
static electricity or electrical noise.
Do not turn off the camera power or remove
the battery or AC adapter during shooting,
playback, or when otherwise accessing the
recording medium.
Do not bring the recording medium near objects
that have a strong magnetic field or that emit
strong electromagnetic waves.
Do not store the recording medium in locations
with high temperature or high humidity.
Do not touch the metal parts.
Hard disk
• Do not use the unit where it is subject to
vibrations or loud sounds.
• If you move the unit suddenly, the drop
detection function may operate and the power
may be turned off.
LCD Monitor
•
To prevent damage to the LCD monitor, DO
NOT
... push it strongly or apply any shocks.
... place the camera with LCD monitor on the
bottom.
• To prolong service life
... avoid rubbing it with coarse cloth.
• For safety, DO NOT
... open the camera’s chassis.
... disassemble or modify the unit.
... allow inflammables, water or metallic objects
to enter the unit.
... remove the battery pack or disconnect the
power supply while the power is on.
... leave the battery pack attached when the
camera is not in use.
... place naked flame sources, such as lighted
candles, on the apparatus.
... expose the apparatus to dripping or splashing.
... leave dust or metal objects adhered to the
power plug or an AC wall outlet.
... insert any objects in the camera.
• Avoid using the unit
... in places subject to excessive humidity or dust.
... in places subject to soot or steam such as
near a cooking stove.
... in places subject to excessive shock or vibration.
... near a television set.
... near appliances generating strong magnetic
or electric fields (speakers, broadcasting
antennas, etc.).
... in places subject to extremely high (over 40°C
or 104°F) or extremely low (under 0°C or
32°F) temperatures.
... in places where air pressure is low (more than
3000 m (9870 ft) above the sea level).
• DO NOT leave the unit
... in places of over 50°C (122°F).
... in places where humidity is extremely low
(below 35%) or extremely high (above 80%).
... in direct sunlight.
... in a closed car in summer.
... near a heater.
... in high places such as on a TV. Leaving the
unit in high places while a cable is connected
may result in a malfunction if the cable is
caught and the unit falls onto the floor.
• To protect the unit, DO NOT
... allow it to become wet.
... drop the unit or strike it against hard objects.
... subject it to shock or excessive vibration
during transportation.
... keep the lens directed at extremely bright
objects for long periods.
... expose the lens to direct sunlight.
... swing it excessively when using the hand strap.
... swing the soft camera case excessively when
the camera is inside it.
... place the camera in dusty or sandy areas,
such as on a beach.
•
To prevent the unit from dropping,
• Attach the shoulder strap securely and fasten
the grip belt securely.
• When using the camera with a tripod, attach the
camera to the tripod securely.
