Charging the battery pack
When the camera is turned on, you cannot charge the battery pack. Be sure to turn off
the power of the camera.
Getting started
1
Insert the battery pack into your camera.
2
Open the DC IN cover and connect the DC connecting plug to the
DC IN jack of your camera with the v mark facing up.
3
Connect the power cord (mains lead) to the AC power adaptor and
then to a wall outlet (mains).
The ON/CHG lamp (orange) below the LCD screen lights up when charging
begins. When the ON/CHG lamp goes off, normal charge is completed. For
full charge, which allows you to use the battery longer than usual, leave the
battery pack inserted for about one hour after normal charge is completed.
Battery remaining indicator
The LCD screen or finder on the camera shows the remaining time for which you can
still record or play back images.
This indication may not be entirely accurate depending on the conditions of use and
the operating environment.
Auto power-off function
If you do not operate the camera for about three minutes during recording, the camera
turns off automatically to prevent wearing down the battery pack. To use the camera
again, slide the POWER switch to the right to turn on the camera again.

Getting started
• The battery life and number of images will be decreased when using at low temperature, using
the flash, turning the power on/off frequently, or using the zoom.
• The capacity of the floppy disk is limited. The above figures are a guide when you continuously
record/play back by replacing the floppy disk.
• If sufficient battery remaining time is indicated but the power runs out soon, fully charge the
battery so that the correct battery remaining time appears.
• Do not short the DC plug of the AC power adaptor with a metallic object, as this may cause
malfunction.
• Do not expose the battery pack to water.

• While the image is being recorded on a floppy disk, the ACCESS lamp lights.
When this lamp is lit, do not shake or strike the camera. Also, do not turn the power
off, or not remove the battery pack/floppy disk. Otherwise, an image data
breakdown may occur and the floppy disk may become unusable.
• When using a “Memory Stick,” writing and reading images take about twice times
than using a floppy disk.
Recording images with the finder
Turn the finder adjustment dial until the image appears clearly within the finder, then
record the image.

Notes
• The recommended shooting distance is 0.6 to 2.5 m (23 5/8 inches to 8 1/3 feet).
• Attaching a conversion lens (not supplied) may block the light from the flash and the recorded
image may be eclipsed.
• You cannot use the built-in flash and an external strobe at the same time.
• The
indicator appears when the flash is not popped up under situations that you should use
the flash.
• Auto red-eye reduction may not produce the desired red-eye reduction effects depending on
individual differences, the distance to the subject, if the subject does not see the pre-strobe, or
other conditions. In addition, red-eye reduction effects are also difficult to obtain if you select a
slow shutter speed in shutter priority mode of the PROGRAM AE function.
• The flash effect is not obtained easily when you use forced flash in a bright location.

Precautions
On cleaning
Cleaning the LCD screen or finder
Wipe the screen surface with a
cleaning cloth (not supplied) or an
LCD cleaning kit (not supplied) to
remove fingerprints, dust, etc.
Cleaning the camera surface
Clean the camera surface with a soft
cloth slightly moistened with water,
then wipe the surface dry. Do not use
any type of solvent such as thinner,
alcohol or benzene as this may damage
the finish or the casing.
• Avoid getting liquids on the floppy
disk.
• Be sure to use a floppy disk case to
ensure protection of important data.
• Even when you use a 3.5 inch 2HD
floppy disk, image data may not be
recorded and/or displayed depending
on the using environment. In this
case, use an other brand of disks.
On operating temperature
Your camera is designed for use
between the temperatures of 0 °C to
40 °C (32 °F to 104 °F). Recording in
extremely cold or hot places that
exceed this range is not recommended.
On moisture condensation
After using your camera at the
seashore or other dusty locations
Clean your camera carefully.
Otherwise, the salty air may corrode
the metal fittings or dust may enter the
inside of your camera, causing a
malfunction.
On floppy disks
Moisture condensation occurs
easily when:
• The camera is brought from a cold
location such as a ski slope into a
warmly heated room.
• The camera is taken from an airconditioned room or car interior to
the hot outdoors, etc.
How to prevent moisture
condensation
When bringing the camera from a cold
place to a warm place, seal the camera
in a plastic bag and allow it to adapt to
conditions at the new location over a
period of time (about an hour).

Additional information
To protect data recorded on floppy
disks, note the following:
• Avoid storing floppy disks near
magnets or magnetic fields such as
those of speakers and televisions,
permanent erasure of disk data may
result.
• Avoid storing floppy disks in areas
subject to direct sunlight or sources
of high temperature, such as a
heating device. Floppy disk warping
or damage may result, rendering the
disk useless.
• Avoid contact with the disk’s surface
by opening the disk shutter plate. If
the disk’s surface becomes
blemished, data may be rendered
unreadable.
If the camera is brought directly from a
cold to a warm location, or is placed in
a very damp room, moisture may
condense inside or outside the camera.
Should this occur, the camera will not
operate properly.

masterpage:Left
01cov.book Page 56 Thursday, March 9, 2000 10:26 AM
If moisture condensation occurs
Immediately eject the floppy disk, then
turn off the camera and wait about an
hour for the moisture to evaporate.
Note that if you attempt to record with
moisture remaining inside the lens, you
will be unable to record clear images.
On AC power adaptor
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet
(mains) when you are not using the
unit for a long time. To disconnect
the power cord (mains lead), pull it
out by the plug. Never pull the power
cord (mains lead) itself.
• Do not operate the unit with a
damaged cord (mains lead) or if the
unit has been dropped or damaged.
• Do not bend the power cord (mains
lead) forcibly, or place a heavy object
on it. This will damage the cord
(mains lead) and may cause fire or
electrical shock.
• Prevent metallic objects from coming
into contact with the metal parts of
the connecting section. If this
happens, a short may occur and the
unit may be damaged.
• Always keep metal contacts clean.
• Do not disassemble the unit.
• Do not apply mechanical shock or
drop the unit.
• While the unit is in use, particularly
during charging, keep it away from
AM receivers and video equipment.
AM receivers and video equipment
disturb AM reception and video
operation.
• The unit becomes warm during use.
This is not a malfunction.
• Do no place the unit in locations that
are:
— Extremely hot or cold
— Dusty or dirty
— Very humid
— Vibrating
On battery pack
• Use only the specified charger with
the charging function.
• To prevent accident from a short
circuit, do not allow metal objects to
come into contact with the battery
terminals.
• Keep the battery pack away from fire.
• Never expose the battery pack to
temperatures above 60 °C (140 °F),
such as in a car parked in the sun or
under direct sunlight.
• Keep the battery pack dry.
• Do not expose the battery pack to any
mechanical shock.
• Do not disassemble nor modify the
battery pack.
• Attach the battery pack to the camera
securely.
• Charging while some capacity
remains does not affect the original
battery capacity.
On vanadium-lithium battery
Your camera is supplied with a
vanadium-lithium battery installed so
as to retain the date and time, etc.,
regardless of the setting of the POWER
switch. The vanadium-lithium battery
is always charged as long as you are
using your camera. The battery,
however, will get discharged gradually
if you do not use your camera. It will
be completely discharged in about six
months if you do not use your camera
at all. Even if the vanadium-lithium
battery is not charged, it will not affect
the camera operation. To retain the
date and time, etc., charge the battery if
the battery is discharged.

adaptor supplied with your camera,
and leave your camera with the
power turned off for more than 24
hours.
• Or install the fully charged battery
pack in your camera, and leave your
camera with the power turned off for
more than 24 hours.
