extremely high-precision technology so over
99.99% of the pixels are operational for
effective use. However, some tiny black and/
or bright dots (white, red, blue or green) may
appear on the LCD screen. These dots are a
normal result of the manufacturing process,
and do not affect the recording.

the LCD screen and make it wet,
immediately wipe off the screen with a soft
cloth. Leaving liquids on the LCD screen
surface can harm the quality and cause a
malfunction.
• Do not press against the LCD screen. The
screen may be discolored and that may cause
a malfunction.

temperature, you may be unable to record
movies or the power may turn off
automatically to protect the camera.
A message will be displayed on the LCD
screen before the power turns off or you can
no longer record movies.

Battery pack and power
Cannot insert the battery pack.
• Make sure the direction of the battery is correct, and insert it until the battery eject lever is
locked (page 14).
Cannot turn on the camera.
• After inserting the battery pack into the camera, it may take a few moments for the camera to
power up.
• Insert the battery pack correctly (page 14).
• The battery pack is discharged. Insert a charged battery pack (page 12).
• Use a recommended battery pack.
• Depending on the camera and battery temperature, the power may turn off automatically to
protect the camera. In this case, a message is displayed on the LCD screen before the power
turns off.
• If you do not operate the camera for about two minutes while the power is on, the camera
turns off automatically to prevent wearing down the battery pack. Turn on the camera again.
Others
The power turns off suddenly.
55GB
The remaining charge indicator is incorrect.
• This is caused when you use the camera in an extremely hot or cold location.
• A discrepancy arose between the remaining charge indicator and the actual remaining battery
charge. Fully discharge the battery pack once, then charge it to correct the indication.
• Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. When the operating time per
charge decreases markedly, the battery pack needs to be replaced. Purchase a new battery
pack.
Cannot charge the battery pack while it is inside the camera.
• You cannot charge the battery pack using the AC Adaptor (sold separately). Use the battery
charger to charge the battery.
The CHARGE lamp flashes while charging the battery.
• Remove and reinsert the battery pack, making sure it is installed correctly.
• The temperature may be inappropriate for charging. Try charging the battery pack again
within the proper charging temperature range (10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F)).
Shooting still images/movies
Cannot record images.
• Check the free capacity of the internal memory or “Memory Stick Duo” media (pages 24, 30,
34). If it is full, do one of the following:
– Delete unnecessary images (page 39).
– Change the “Memory Stick Duo” media.
• You cannot record images while charging the flash.
• Movies with the size set to [1280×720] can only be recorded on a “Memory Stick PRO Duo”
media. When using recording media other than “Memory Stick PRO Duo” media, set the
movie image size to [VGA].
• Set [Demo Mode] to [Off].

• The folder/file name has been changed on your computer.
• No guarantees are made for playing back, on this camera, files containing images which were
processed on a computer or images which were shot using other cameras.
• The camera is in USB mode. Delete the USB connection.
• You may not be able to play back some images stored on the “Memory Stick Duo” media shot
using other cameras. Play such images in Folder View (page 49).
• This is caused by copying images on your computer to the “Memory Stick Duo” media
without using the “PMB”. Play such images in Folder View (page 49).

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

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 (sold separately) to remove fingerprints,
dust, etc.

Wipe the lens with a soft cloth to remove
fingerprints, dust, etc.
Cleaning the camera surface
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.
If moisture condensation occurs
Turn off the camera and wait about an hour for
the moisture to evaporate. Note that if you
attempt to shoot with moisture remaining
inside the lens, you will be unable to record
clear images.

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, but
the date and time will not be indicated.
