Notes and Safety Instructions
Notices regarding COPYRIGHT
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.
-
DEW
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.
Faults caused by ingress of fluids may not be possible to repair.

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 CAM 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 located correctly and firmly in 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
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
-
-
8
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.
ENGLISH
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.
2. Do not pick up the camcorder using the viewfinder.
3. Excessive force when pulling the viewfinder out may damage it.

Notes regarding ‘Record’ or ‘Playback’ using the LCD
1. The LCD display has been manufactured
using high precision tech-nology.
However, there may be tiny dots (red,
blue or green in color) 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.
Playback

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.
1.
2. The lithium battery for the camcorder lasts about 6 months under
normal operation from time of installation.
2.
3.
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. There is a danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type.
Warning:
10
Keep the LITHIUM BATTERY out of reach of children.
Should a battery be swallowed, consult a doctor
immediately.

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.
When using SB-L220 Battery, use of Viewfinder is inconvenient.
The use of LCD Monitor is preferable.

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

✤ 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.
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 colors are provided (red and grey)-you may
choose which one indicates charged and which indicates
