The built-in battery is not charged at the time of purchase.
At the time of purchase or in case of the battery is not used for a long period
of time, the charging time will be longer than usual. The camera does not
turn on if the remaining battery power is low. In this case, charge the battery
for more than 20 minutes before turning on the power.
Charging time: Approx. 4 h 40 m (when charging at 25 ℃)
The battery cannot be charged outside the room temperature range of
10°C to 35°C. The CHARGE lamp does not light up when the battery is
not being charged. If the temperature increases or decreases during
charging, the CHARGE lamp will blink slowly and charging will stop. In this
case, remove the AC adapter, press the Reset button and wait until the
room temperature is within the above stated range before charging again.
You can record or play back videos during charging. (However, the
charging time will be longer than usual. In addition, the remaining battery
power may decrease according to conditions.) If the internal temperature
rises when using the unit, stop the charging temporarily. (The CHARGE
lamp goes off.)
If malfunctions (such as overvoltage) occur, charging will stop. In these
cases, CHARGE lamp blinks quickly as a notification.
During charging, the P icon on the screen changes to O to indicate that
charging is in progress. (when the provided AC adapter is used)
When the recording time becomes extremely short even when the battery
is fully charged, the battery needs to be replaced. For details on replacing
the built-in battery (subject to a fee), consult the nearest JVC service
center.

Do not open/close the cover or insert/remove an SD card or any cables
while using underwater or on the beach, or if your hands contain water
droplets or sands. Doing so may cause water to enter into the camera or
malfunction.
Do not subject the camera to high pressure or vibration resulted from swift
current, waterfall or diving into water.
The waterproof performance is not guaranteed if the camera is dropped
or subjected to other impact shock. If the camera has been subjected to
impact shock, consult your nearest service center.
While shooting underwater, noise generated inside of the camera
(zooming sounds, etc) may be picked up. This is not a malfunction.
Do not immerse into hot spring, or hot water above 40°C. Doing so
deteriorates waterproof performance.
Keep away from hands with sun oil or sun screen. Doing so may cause
discoloration or deterioration of material.
The accessories are not waterproof.

After using the camera under the sea or on the beach, immerse the
camera in fresh water for about 10 minutes to remove salt particles,
replace the water and rinse the camera.
Open and close the LCD screen, and operate the buttons or zoom
operations to get rid of sands or dusts in the gap.
Do not rinse the camera under running tap water or strong pressure
water.
Dry the camera.
Wipe the camera completely with a soft dry cloth and allow it to dry in a
well-ventilated and shady location.
0 Place the camera with the lens facing downward while the LCD
monitor is closed, and leave it for approximately 10 minutes. (By doing
so, microphone and LDC part are dried out easily.) Place the camera
in a up right position on a dry cloth afterward Close the terminal cover
after the camera is dried out completely.
0 Wipe off any foreign materials or water droplets inside the cover.
If you leave the camera immersed in salt water or allow water droplets from
the salt water to remain on the camera, this may cause corrosion,
discoloration or deterioration of waterproof performance.
If you wipe or dry the camera with sand particles adhered, this may cause
scratches on the camera.
Do not wash with chemicals, soap, neutral detergents, or alcohol.
Do not dry the camera with a hair dryer or other heat sources. This could
impair its waterproof performance.
Cautions on Using under Low Temperature

The performance of the battery will drop temporarily when the temperature
is -10°C to 0°C, this will cause the remaining recording time to shorten.
Charging cannot be performed when the surrounding temperature is
below 10 °C.
Turning on the camera while it is still cold will deteriorate the performance
of the LCD monitor. Problems such as the screen becoming dark
momentarily or residual image can occur.
If snow or water droplets adhere to the camera under sub-zero
temperature environment, ice can formed between the gaps around the
buttons, speaker or microphone. This will cause difficulty in operating the
buttons as well as decrease in the volume level.
Direct contact with exposed metal part under cold temperature can cause
the skin to stick on the metal part resulting in injuries such as frostbite. Do
not touch with bare hands.

Do not leave the camera under low temperature in cold climates or under
high temperature above 40 °C (such as under direct sunlight, inside a

Battery Pack
Power supply
Unable to charge the battery.
Unable to turn on the power.
When the battery pack is fully charged, the lamp does not light up.
Be sure to charge using the supplied AC adapter. Malfunction in the unit that
occurred due to the use of an AC adapter other than the one provided is not
included in the warranty.
Check the connection, then disconnect and reconnect the charging adapter
cable.
Charging cannot be performed under low or high temperature environments.
Charge under the room temperature range of 10°C to 35°C. (Under
environments beyond the temperature range, charging may stop to protect
the battery pack.)
Using a non-original AC adapter may result in damage to this unit. Be sure
to use an original AC adapter.
The camera does not turn on if the remaining battery power is low.
In this case, charge the battery for more than 20 minutes before turning on
the power.
The remaining battery display is not correct.
If this unit is used for long periods of time in high or low temperatures, or if
the battery pack is repeatedly charged, the amount of remaining battery may
not be displayed correctly.
The battery runs out quickly even after charging.
Be sure to charge using the supplied AC adapter. Malfunction in the unit that
occurred due to the use of an AC adapter other than the one provided is not
included in the warranty.
The performance of the battery will drop temporarily when the temperature
is -10°C to 0°C, this will cause the remaining recording time to shorten.
When the recording time becomes extremely short even when the battery is
fully charged, the battery needs to be replaced. For details on replacing the
built-in battery (subject to a fee), consult the nearest JVC service center.
