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 removed.
2.

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
long recordings, because the LCD uses up more battery power.
DISPLAY
-
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 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.

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 flash for about five seconds when you set the power switch to
CAMERA.
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.

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
short-circuited.
It may cause leakage, heat generation, induce fire and overheating.

The recording time becomes very short in a cold environment.
The continuous recording times in the operating instructions are measured

Do not touch the built-in microphone.
4. Choose a comfortable, stable position for the shots that you are
taking.
You can lean against a wall or on a table for greater stability.
Do not forget to breathe gently.
5. Use the LCD frame as a guide to determine the horizontal plane.
6. Whenever possible, use a tripod.
Recording with the Viewfinder
1. Hold the camcorder firmly using the hand strap.
2. Place your right elbow against your side.
3. Place your left hand under the camcorder to support it.
