Notes and Safety Instructions
Notices regarding COPYRIGHT (VP-D323i/D325i/D327i only)
Television programs, video tapes, DVD titles, films, and other program materials may be copyrighted.
Unauthorized copying of copyrighted material may be against the law.
Notes regarding moisture condensation
1. A sudden rise in atmospheric temperature may cause condensation to form inside the camcorder.
for example:
- When you move the camcorder from a cold location to a warm location (e.g. from outside to inside during winter.)
- When you move the camcorder from a cool location to a hot location (e.g. from inside to outside during the summer.)
2. If the
(DEW) protection feature is activated, leave the camcorder for at least two hours in a dry, warm room with the
cassette compartment opened and the battery pack removed.
Notes regarding CAMCORDER
1. Do not leave the camcorder exposed to high temperature (above 60°C or 140°F).
For example, in a parked car in the sun or exposed to direct sunlight.
2. Do not let the camcorder get wet.
Keep the camcorder away from rain, sea water, and any other form of moisture.
If the camcorder gets wet, it may get damaged.
Sometimes a malfunction due to exposure to liquids cannot be repaired.

Notes and Safety Instructions
Notes regarding the battery pack
- Make sure that the battery pack is fully charged before starting to record.
- To preserve battery power, keep your camcorder turned off when you are not
operating it.
- If your camcorder is in CAMERA mode, and it is left in STBY mode without being
operated for more than 5 minutes with a tape inserted, it will automatically turn
itself off to protect against unnecessary battery discharge.
- Make sure that the battery pack is fitted firmly into place.
Dropping the battery pack may damage it.
- A brand new battery pack is not charged.
Before using the battery pack, you need to charge it completely.
- It is a good idea to use the viewfinder rather than the LCD when making a long
recording, because the LCD uses up more battery power.
* When the battery reaches the end of its life, please contact your
local dealer. The batteries have to be dealt with as chemical waste.
Notes regarding the Video Head Cleaning
- To ensure normal recording and a clear picture, clean the video heads regularly. If a square block-shape distorts playback,
or only a blue screen is displayed, the video heads may be dirty.
If this happens, clean the video heads with a dry type cleaning cassette.
- Do not use a wet-type cleaning cassette. It may damage the video heads.

Notes and Safety Instructions
Note regarding the LENS
- Do not film with the camera lens pointing directly at the sun.
Direct sunlight can damage the CCD(Charge Coupled Device).
Notes regarding electronic viewfinder
1. Do not position the camcorder such that the viewfinder is pointing towards the sun.
Direct sunlight can damage the inside of the viewfinder. Be careful when placing the camcorder under sunlight or near a
window exposed to sunlight.
Notes regarding ‘Record’ or ‘Playback’ using the LCD
1. The LCD display has been manufactured using high precision
technology. However, there may be tiny dots
(red, blue or green in colour) that appear on the LCD display.
These dots are normal and do not affect the recorded picture
in any way.
2. When you use the LCD display under direct sunlight or outdoors,
it maybe difficult to see the picture clearly.
If this occurs, we recommend using the viewfinder.
3. Direct sunlight can damage the LCD monitor.
Notes regarding the hand strap
- To ensure a steady picture while filming, check that the hand strap is properly adjusted.
- Do not force your hand into the hand strap as you could damage it.

Notes and Safety Instructions
Precautions regarding the Lithium battery
1. The lithium battery maintains the clock function and user settings; even if the battery pack or AC adapter is removed.
2. The lithium battery for the camcorder lasts about 6 months under normal operation from time of installation.
3. When the lithium battery becomes weak or dead, the date/time indicator will display “---” when you set the DATE/TIME to ON.
When this occurs, replace the lithium battery with a new one(type CR2025).
4. There is a danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type.
Warning: Keep the LITHIUM BATTERY out of reach of children.
Should a battery be swallowed, consult a doctor immediately.
SERVICING
Do not attempt to service this CAMCORDER yourself.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
REPLACEMENT PARTS
When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer and having the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.

The battery pack should be recharged in an environment of between 32°F (0°C) and 104°F (40°C).
The battery pack should never be charged in a room temperature that is below 32°F (0°C).
The life and capacity of the battery pack will be reduced if it is used in temperatures below 32°F (0°C) or left in temperatures
above 104°F (40°C) for a long period, even when it is fully recharged.
Do not put the battery pack near any heat sources (fire or flames, for example).
Do not disassemble, process, press, or heat the Battery Pack.
Do not allow the + and - terminals of the battery pack to be short-circuited. It may cause leakage, heat generation, induce
fire and overheating.

✤ Please refer to the table on page 25 for approximate continuous recording time.
✤ The recording time is affected by environmental temperature and conditions.
The recording time becomes very short in a cold environment.
The continuous recording time in the operating instructions are measured using a fully charged battery pack at 77°F(25°C).
As the environmental temperature and conditions may differ when you actually use the camcorder, the remaining battery
time may not be the same as the approximate continuous recording time given in these instructions.
✤ The grey bar shown here to indicate battery level, is actually white in the viewfinder. For example, on the viewfinder, "a" (full)
will be displayed as a full white bar, and "e" (empty) will be displayed as a battery outline with the background image behind it.
Tips for Battery Identification
A charge mark is provided on the battery pack to help you remember whether it has been
charged or not.
Two colours are provided (red and grey)-you may choose which one indicates charged and
which indicates discharged.
Note

Power Sources (United Kingdom Only)
The mains lead on the power adapter is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse.
The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to
BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable.
If a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point,
you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug.
Do NOT connect the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK.
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING
NOTE
Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal marked with the letter E or the earth symbol,
or coloured GREEN or GREEN and YELLOW.
