Operating Precautions
Before use
This unit is designed for use in
combination with the Memory Card
Video Recorder (sold separately)
and the Color Camera (sold
separately).
Installation and connections
Consult your supplier and request
installation and connection.

Operating procedures
• Disconnect the control panel cable
when transporting the unit.
• Never disconnect the control
panel cable during recording or
playback on the Memory Card Video
Recorder. Failure to heed this advice
could corrupt the setting file on the
Memory Card Video Recorder or the
management data on the P2 card.
• For how to operate the unit in
combination with the Memory
Card Video Recorder, refer to
the Operating Instructions of the
Memory Card Video Recorder.
Operating Precautions (continued)
LCD panel
• Do not place the unit on the
dashboard or other location where
temperature is excessively high or
low. Otherwise a chemical reaction
to the LCD panel will result and
the unit may be damaged.
• At low temperatures the display
goes dark and becomes less
responsive while reproduction of
movement appears to slow down
and the picture quality is degraded.
However, these phenomena are an
acceptable part of LCD technology
and are not malfunctions.
• The presence of red, blue or
green dots on the screen is not a
malfunction, but a characteristic
peculiar to LCD displays.
An LCD panel is a product of
high-precision technology. For this
reason, it is an accepted fact that
while 99.99 % or more of its pixels
will function normally 0.01 % may
either be dead or constantly lit.
• Sudden changes in in-car
temperature, for example, caused
by turning on the air conditioning
may generate condensation (water
drops) on the inside of the LCD
panel fogging it up and preventing
normal operation. Should this
happen, wait one hour for the
display to clear.
Maintenance
To clean the recorder, turn the
vehicle’s ignition switch to the
LOCK (OFF) position, and keep the
recorder power turned off.
Refer to “Turning the Recorder On
and Off → Off” in the Operating
Instructions of the Memory Card
Video Recorder.
• Do not use solvents such as
benzene, thinner or alcohol, as
these can deform the case or
damage the surface finish.
• Use a soft, dry cloth to dust off
the recorder. If severely soiled,
wipe it with a cloth moistened with
a weak solution of mild synthetic
detergent and wrung out, and
afterwards wipe with a dry cloth.
• If using a chemically treated cloth,
follow the instructions provided
with it.
Periodic maintenance
(Servicing & testing)
Performing necessary periodic
maintenance (servicing & testing)
allows you to feel at ease using the
unit, and keeps the unit running in
optimal condition.
Because maintenance ensures
stable functionality and performance,
in addition to preventing troubles
due to part degradation, we
recommend purchasing a periodic
maintenance contract.
The interval and costs for performing
maintenance, moreover, will vary
depending on the circumstances,
duration, environment, etc., in which
the unit is used.
For detailed information on paid
periodic maintenance, consult your
supplier.
