be of sufficient magnitude
to constitute a risk of
electric shock to persons.
This symbol is intended to
alert the user to the presence
of important operating and

you are not sure of the type of electrical power
supplied to your home, consult your dealer or
local power company. For those sets designed to
operate from battery power, or other sources, refer
to the operating instructions.
[ Polarization
This set may be equipped with a polarized ac
power cord plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other).
This plug will fit into the power outlet only one
way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing
the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact
your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized
plug by forcing it in.
[ Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or
convenience receptacles beyond their capacity,
since this can result in fire or electric shock.

Never push objects of any kind into the set
through openings as they may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out parts that could result
in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any
kind on the set.

Precautions
[ Do not use/store the camera in
the following places
• In an extremely hot, cold or humid place
In places such as in a car parked in the sun, the
camera body may become deformed and this
may cause a malfunction.
• Under direct sunlight or near a heater
The camera body may become discolored or
deformed, and this may cause a malfunction.
• In a location subject to rocking vibration
• Near strong magnetic place
• In sandy or dusty places
Be careful not to let sand or dust get into the
camera. This may cause the camera to
malfunction, and in some cases this malfunction
cannot be repaired.
[ On carrying
Do not sit down in a chair or other place with the
camera in the back pocket of your trousers or
skirt, as this may cause malfunction or damage the
camera.
[ On cleaning
Cleaning the LCD screen
Wipe the screen surface with an LCD cleaning kit
(not supplied) to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.
Cleaning the lens
Wipe the lens with a soft cloth to remove
fingerprints, dust, etc.
Cleaning the camera surface

[ On operating temperatures
Your camera is designed for use under the
temperatures between 0°C and 40°C (32°F and
104°F). Shooting in extremely cold or hot places
that exceed this range is not recommended.
[ On moisture condensation
If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, moisture may condense inside or
outside the camera. This moisture condensation
may cause a malfunction of the camera.

This rechargeable battery is continually charged
as long as you are using the camera. However, if
you use the camera for only short periods, it
discharges gradually, and if you do not use the
camera at all for about one month it becomes
completely discharged. In this case, be sure to
charge this rechargeable battery before using the
camera.
However, even if this rechargeable battery is not
charged, you can still use the camera as long as
you do not record the date and time.
