Notices regarding COPYRIGHT

(VP-D101i/D103i/D105i 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.

1.

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.

2.

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 installed, 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 recordings, 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.

-

1.

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.

3.

Notes regarding the hand strap

To ensure a steady picture during 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.

In this case, replace the lithium battery with a new one(type CR2025).

4. Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.

Replace only with the same or equivalent type.

Notes

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 source (fire or flames, for example).

Do not disassemble, process, pressure, or heat the Battery Pack.

Do not allow the + and - terminals of the battery pack to be shortcircuited. It may cause leakage, heat generation, induce fire and overheating.

(The camcorder will turn off soon, change the battery as soon as possible)

✤ Please refer to the table on page 25 for approximate continuous recording times.

✤ The recording time is affected by environmental temperature and conditions.

The recording time becomes very short in a cold environment.

The continuous recording times 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 times given in these instructions.
