Handling the recorder

f Warning:

• Do not use the recorder near flammable or explosive gases.

• Keep young children and infants away from the recorder.

Always use and store the recorder out of the reach of young children and infants to prevent the following dangerous situations which could cause serious injury:

1 Becoming entangled in the recorder strap, causing strangulation.

2 Accidentally swallowing the battery, cards or other small parts.

3 Accidentally being injured by the moving parts of the recorder.

• Do not use or store the recorder in dusty or humid places.

• Do not disassemble, repair or modify the unit yourself.

• Use SD/SDHC memory cards only.

Never use other types of cards.

If you accidentally insert another type of card into the recorder, contact an authorized distributor or service center. Do not try to remove the card by force.

• Do not operate the unit while operating a vehicle (such as a bicycle, motorcycle, or car).

Safety precautions

f Caution:

• Stop using the recorder immediately if you notice any unusual odors, noise, or smoke around it.

Never remove the batteries with bare hands, which may cause a fire or burn your hands.

• Be careful with the strap.

Be careful with the strap when you carry the recorder. It could easily catch on stray objects and cause serious damage.

• Do not leave the recorder in places where it may be subject to extremely high temperatures.

Doing so may cause parts to deteriorate and, in some circumstances, cause the recorder to catch fire. Do not use the charger or AC adapter if it is covered (such as a blanket). This could cause overheating, resulting in fire.

• Handle the recorder with care to avoid getting a low-temperature burn.

• When the recorder contains metal parts, overheating can result in a low-temperature burn. Pay attention to the following:

• When used for a long period, the recorder will get hot. If you hold on to the recorder in this state, a low-temperature burn may be caused.

• In places subject to extremely cold temperatures, the temperature of the recorder’s body may be lower than the environmental temperature. If possible, wear gloves when handling the recorder in cold temperatures.

Battery handling precautions

Follow these important guidelines to prevent batteries from leaking, overheating, burning, exploding, or causing electrical shocks or burns.

f Danger:

• The recorder uses a lithium ion battery specified by Olympus. Charge the battery with the specified AC adapter or charger. Do not use any other AC adapters or chargers.

• Batteries should never be exposed to flame, heated, short-circuited or disassembled.

• Never heat or incinerate batteries.

• Take precautions when carrying or storing batteries to prevent them from coming into contact with any metal objects such as jewelry, pins, fasteners, etc.

• Never store batteries where they will be exposed to direct sunlight, or subjected to high temperatures in a hot vehicle, near a heat source, etc.

• To prevent causing battery leaks or damaging their terminals, carefully follow all instructions regarding the use of batteries. Never attempt to disassemble a battery or modify it in any way, solder, etc.

• Do not connect the battery directly to a power outlet or a cigarette lighter of an automobile.

• If a battery fluid gets into your eyes, flush your eyes immediately with clear, cold running water and seek medical attention immediately.

• Keep batteries dry at all times.

• If rechargeable batteries have not been recharged within the specified time, stop charging them and do not use them.

• Do not use a battery if it is cracked or broken.

• Never subject batteries to strong shocks or continuous vibration.

• If a battery leaks, becomes discolored or deformed, or becomes abnormal in any other way during operation, stop using the recorder.

AC adapter

f Danger:

• Be sure to use the AC adapter with the proper voltage (AC 100 - 240 V). Using it with other voltage levels may cause fire, explosion, overheating, electric shock or injury.

• For safety, be sure to unplug the

AC adapter from the outlet before performing maintenance or cleaning.

Also, never plug in or disconnect the power plug with a wet hand. This may cause electric shock or injury.

f Warning:

• Do not attempt to disassemble, repair or modify the AC adapter in any way.

• Keep foreign objects including water, metal, or flammable substances from getting inside the product.

• Do not moisten the AC adapter or touch it with a wet hand.

• Do not use the AC adapter in the vicinity of flammable gas (including gasoline, benzine and lacquer thinner).

Safety precautions

In case

• ... the internal parts of the AC adapter are exposed because it has been dropped or otherwise damaged:

• ... the AC adapter is dropped in water, or if water, metal flammable substances or other foreign objects get inside it:

• ... you notice anything unusual when using the AC adapter such as abnormal noise, heat, smoke, or a burning odor:

1 do not touch any of the exposed parts;

2 immediately disconnect the power supply plug from the power outlet, and;

3 call your dealer or local Olympus representative for servicing. Continued use of the AC adapter under these circumstances could result in electric shock, fire or injury.

f Caution:

• Do not use the AC adapter if the power plug is damaged or the plug is not completely connected to the outlet.

This may cause fire, overheating, electric shock, short circuit or damage.

• Unplug the AC adapter from AC outlet when not using. If this precaution is not followed, fire, overheating or electric shock may occur.

• Make sure to hold the plug when removing the power plug from the outlet. Do not bend the cord excessively or put a heavy object on it. This may cause fire, overheating, electric shock or damage.

• If something appears to be wrong with the AC adapter, unplug the AC adapter from the outlet and consult your nearest service center. Using the AC adapter may cause fire, overheating, electric shock or injury.

• Do not use or keep the AC adapter in very hot places, such as in direct sunlight, in a closed car on a sunny day, near a heater, on an electric carpet, etc.

Do not use the AC adapter if something is covering it (such as a blanket). This may cause fire, explosion, leakage or overheating.

LCD monitor

• The LCD used for the monitor is made with high-precision technology.

However, black spots or bright spots of light may appear constantly on the LCD

Cautions concerning the rechargeable battery

Read the following descriptions carefully when you use the lithium ion battery (LI-42B).

Discharging:

The rechargeable battery self-discharge while this is not in use. Be sure to charge them regularly before use.

Operating temperature:

The rechargeable battery is chemical products.

The rechargeable battery efficiency may fluctuate even when operating within the recommended temperature range. This is an inherent nature of such products.

Recommended temperature range:

When operating appliance:

0°C - 42°C/ 32°F - 107.6°F

Charging:

5°C - 35°C/ 41°F - 95°F

Storage for a long period:

–20°C - 30°C/ –4°F - 86°F

Using the rechargeable battery outside the above temperature range may result in declining efficiency and shorter battery life. In order to prevent battery leakage or rust, remove the rechargeable battery from the products when you will not be using them for a long time, and store them separately.

Notes

• This recorder is designed to fully charge battery regardless of their energy level. However, for best results when charging newly purchased rechargeable battery that have not been used for a long time (more than one month), it is recommended to fully charge the battery then discharge repeatedly for 2 to 3 times.

• When disposing rechargeable battery, always observe the local laws and regulations. Contact your local recycling center for proper disposal methods.

• If lithium ion battery is not fully discharged, protect against short-circuiting (e.g. by taping the contacts) before disposing.

For customers in Germany:

Olympus has a contract with the GRS (Joint Battery

Disposal Association) in Germany to ensure environmentally friendly disposal.
