IMPORTANT

SAFEGUARDS

For your protection, please read these safety instructions completely before operating the appliance, and keep this manual for future reference.

Carefully observe all warnings, precautions and instructions on the appliance, or the one described in the operating instructions and adhere to them.

Use

[ Power Sources

This set should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of electrical power supplied to your home, consult your dealer or local power company. For those sets designed to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

[ Polarization

This set may be equipped with a polarized ac power cord plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other).

This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed.

Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug by forcing it in.

[ Overloading

Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or convenience receptacles beyond their capacity, since this can result in fire or electric shock.

[ Object and Liquid Entry

Never push objects of any kind into the set through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the set.

[ Attachments

Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.

[ Cleaning

Unplug the set from the wall outlet before cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth lightly dampened with water for cleaning the exterior of the set.

Installation

[ Water and Moisture

Do not use power-line operated sets near water – for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.

[ Power-Cord Protection

Route the power cord so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to the plugs, receptacles, and the point where the cord exits from the appliance.

[ Accessories

Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The set may fall, causing serious injury to a child or an adult, and serious damage to the set. Use only a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer.

[ Ventilation

The slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the set, and to protect it from overheating, these slots and openings must never be blocked or covered.

– Never cover the slots and openings with a cloth or other materials.

– Never block the slots and openings by placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.

– Never place the set in a confined space, such as a bookcase, or built-in cabinet, unless proper ventilation is provided.

– Do not place the set near or over a radiator or heat register, or where it is exposed to direct sunlight.

[ Lightning

For added protection for this set during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system.

This will prevent damage to the set due to lightning and power-line surges.

Service

[ Damage Requiring Service

Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

– When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.

– If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the set.

– If the set has been exposed to rain or water.

– If the set has been subject to excessive shock by being dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged.

– If the set does not operate normally when following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are specified in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the set to normal operation.

– When the set exhibits a distinct change in performance – this indicates a need for service.

[ Servicing

Do not attempt to service the set yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards.

Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

[ Replacement parts

When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original parts.

Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.

10 x Notes on using the camera

Internal memory and “Memory

Stick Duo” back up

Do not turn off the camera, remove the battery pack, or remove the “Memory Stick Duo” while the access lamp is lit. Otherwise, the internal memory data or “Memory Stick Duo” may be damaged. Be sure to make a backup copy to protect your data.

On management files

When you insert a “Memory Stick Duo” without a management file into the camera and turn on the power, part of the “Memory Stick

Duo” capacity is used to automatically create a management file. It may take some time until you can perform the next operation.

Notes on recording/playback

• Before you start recording, make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly.

• The camera is neither dust-proof, nor splash-

proof, nor water-proof. Read “Precautions”

(page 57) before operating the camera.

• Avoid exposing the camera to water. If water enters inside the camera, a malfunction may occur. In some cases, the camera cannot be repaired.

• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the malfunction of the camera.

• Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio waves or emits radiation. Otherwise, the camera may not properly record or play back images.

• Using the camera in sandy or dusty locations may cause malfunctions.

Troubleshooting

If you experience trouble with the camera, try the following solutions.

1 Check the items below, and refer to “Cyber-shot Handbook” (PDF).

If a code such as “C/E: ss : ss ” appears on the screen, refer to “Cyber-shot

Handbook.”

2 Remove the battery pack, wait for about one minute, re-insert the battery pack, then turn on the power.

3

Initialize the settings (page 48).

4 Consult your Sony dealer or local authorized Sony service facility.

On repairing cameras with internal memory or Music files function included, data in the camera may be checked on minimum necessity to verify and improve the malfunction symptoms. Sony will not copy or save any of those data.

Battery pack and power

Cannot insert the battery pack.

Insert the battery pack correctly to push the battery eject lever (page 15).

Cannot turn on the camera.

• After inserting the battery pack into the camera, it may take a few moments for the camera to power up.

Insert the battery pack correctly (page 15).

The battery pack is discharged. Insert a charged battery pack (page 13).

• The battery pack is dead. Replace it with a new one.

• Use a recommended battery pack.

The power turns off suddenly.

• If you do not operate the camera for about three minutes while the power is on, the camera turns off automatically to prevent wearing down the battery pack. Turn on the camera again

(page 17).

• The battery pack is dead. Replace it with a new one.

The remaining charge indicator is incorrect.

• The battery charge is quickly used up in the following cases:

– When you use the camera in an extremely hot or cold location.

– When you use the flash and zoom frequently.

– When you repeatedly turn the power on and off.

– When [Brightness] of the (screen display) is set to [Bright].

• A discrepancy arose between the remaining charge indicator and the actual remaining battery charge. Fully discharge the battery pack once, then charge it to correct the indication.

The battery pack is discharged. Insert the charged battery pack (page 13).

• The battery pack is dead. Replace it with a new one.

Cannot charge the battery pack while inside the camera.

• You cannot charge the battery pack using the AC Adaptor (not supplied). Use the battery charger (supplied) to charge the battery.

Shooting still images/movies

Cannot record images.

Check the free capacity of the internal memory or “Memory Stick Duo” (pages 27, 30). If it is

full, do one of the following:

Delete unnecessary images (page 36).

– Change the “Memory Stick Duo”.

• You cannot record images while charging the flash.

• When shooting a still image, set the shooting mode other than (Movie).

• Set the shooting mode to (Movie) when shooting movies.

• The image size is set to [640(Fine)] when recording movies. Do one of the following:

– Set the image size to other than [640(Fine)].

– Record images in the internal memory or on a “Memory Stick PRO Duo.”

Vertical streaks appear when you are shooting a very bright subject.

• The smear phenomenon is occurring and white, black, red, purple or other streaks appear on the image. This phenomenon is not a malfunction.

Viewing images

Cannot play back images.

• Press

(Playback) button (page 19).

• The folder/file name has been changed on your computer.

• No guarantees are made for playing back, on this camera, files containing images which were processed on a computer or images which were shot using other cameras.

• The camera is in USB mode. Delete the USB connection.

• You may not be able to play back some images stored on the “Memory Stick Duo” shot using

other cameras. Play such images in Folder View (page 34).

• This is caused by copying images on your computer to the “Memory Stick Duo” without

using the “PMB”. Play such images in Folder View (page 34).

Precautions

Do not use/store the camera in the following places

• In an extremely hot, cold or humid place

In places such as in a car parked in the sun, the camera body may become deformed and this may cause a malfunction.

• Under direct sunlight or near a heater

The camera body may become discolored or deformed, and this may cause a malfunction.

In a location subject to rocking vibration

Near strong magnetic place

In sandy or dusty places

Be careful not to let sand or dust get into the camera. This may cause the camera to malfunction, and in some cases this malfunction cannot be repaired.

On carrying

Do not sit down in a chair or other place with the camera in the back pocket of your trousers or skirt, as this may cause malfunction or damage the camera.

On cleaning

Cleaning the LCD screen

Wipe the screen surface with an LCD cleaning kit (not supplied) to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.

Cleaning the lens

Wipe the lens with a soft cloth to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.

Cleaning the camera surface

Clean the camera surface with a soft cloth slightly moistened with water, then wipe the surface with a dry cloth. To prevent damage to the finish or casing:

– Do not expose the camera to chemical products such as thinner, benzine, alcohol, disposable cloths, insect repellent, sunscreen or insecticide.

– Do not touch the camera with any of the above on your hand.

– Do not leave the camera in contact with rubber or vinyl for a long time.

On operating temperatures

Your camera is designed for use under the temperatures between 0°C and 40°C (32°F and

104°F). Shooting in extremely cold or hot places that exceed this range is not recommended.

On moisture condensation

If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense inside or outside the camera. This moisture condensation may cause a malfunction of the camera.

If moisture condensation occurs

Turn off the camera and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate. Note that if you attempt to shoot with moisture remaining inside the lens, you will be unable to record clear images.

Precaution when disposing of the camera

Formatting the camera does not completely delete all of the data in the internal memory.

Therefore, when disposing of the camera, physically destroying the camera is recommended.

On the internal rechargeable backup battery

This camera has an internal rechargeable battery for maintaining the date and time and other settings regardless of whether the power is on or off.

This rechargeable battery is continually charged as long as you are using the camera.

However, if you use the camera for only short periods, it discharges gradually, and if you do not use the camera at all for about one month it becomes completely discharged. In this case, be sure to charge this rechargeable battery before using the camera.

However, even if this rechargeable battery is not charged, you can still use the camera, but the date and time will not be indicated.

Charging method of the internal rechargeable backup battery

Insert charged battery pack in the camera, and then leave the camera for 24 hours or more with the power off.
