(such as necklaces, hairpins, etc.).

• This can result in a short circuit or heat generation and, if you touch the battery in this condition, you may be badly burned.

n

Battery

The battery is a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Its ability to generate power is based upon the chemical reaction that takes place inside it. This reaction is susceptible to the surrounding temperature and humidity, and, if the temperature is too high or too low, the operating time of the battery will be shorter.

After use, be sure to remove the battery.

Store the removed battery in the battery carrying case (supplied).

n

Charger

• If you use the charger near a radio, radio reception may be disturbed. Keep the charger 1 m or more away from radio.

• When the charger is in use, it may generate whirring sounds. However, this is not a malfunction.

• After use, be sure to disconnect the AC cable from the electrical outlet. (If it is left connected, a minute amount of current is consumed.)

• Keep the terminals of the charger and battery clean.

If you drop the battery accidentally, check to see if the battery body and terminals are damaged.

• Inserting a damaged battery in the camera will damage the camera.

121

VQT0Y60

Others

Conditions

Images are grainy or noisy.

Shooting of motion pictures stops unexpectedly.

The picture freezes momentarily when the shutter button is pressed halfway.

Causes

Is the ISO sensitivity high or the shutter speed slow?

(When set to [AUTO], ISO sensitivity increases for indoor and other shooting occasions. When set to [

ISO

], ISO sensitivity may increase depending on movements and brightness of the subject.)

• Reduce ISO sensitivity. (P83)

• Set [NOISE REDUCTION] in [PICT.ADJ.] to [HIGH] or set every item except [NOISE REDUCTION] to [LOW]. (P90)

• Improve the ambient light.

In [HIGH SENS.] (P67) in scene mode, the resolution of the recorded picture decreases slightly because of high sensitivity processing.

This is not a malfunction.

This camera is not compatible with motion picture recording on MultiMediaCards.

• When you set the [PICT.MODE] to [30fpsVGA], [30fps16:9L] or [15fps16:9H], we recommend using cards that offer 10

MB/second or higher speeds (shown on their packages and elsewhere) for best results.

• Depending on the type of SD Memory Card, recording may stop in the middle.

• Is the AF mode 3-area-focusing (high speed) or 1-areafocusing (high speed)? (P87) n

Black, red, blue and green dots appear on the

LCD monitor.

122

VQT0Y60

Conditions

The LCD monitor sometimes turns off although the camera is turned on.

The brightness of the LCD monitor becomes dark or bright for a moment.

The LCD monitor flickers indoors.

The LCD monitor is too bright or dark.

Causes

Have you set economy mode? (P22)

–In economy mode, the LCD monitor turns off while the flash is charged.

After recording, the LCD monitor is turned off until the camera is ready for the next picture to be taken. The LCD monitor is turned off for a maximum of 6 seconds particularly when using the built-in memory.

This phenomenon appears when pressing the shutter button halfway to set the aperture value and does not affect the recorded pictures.

The LCD monitor may flicker for a few seconds after turning the camera on indoors under fluorescent light.

This is not a malfunction.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor. (P21)

This is not a malfunction.

These pixels do not affect the recorded pictures.

Conditions

Noise appears on the

LCD monitor.

A vertical line appears on the LCD monitor.

Distortion in the LCD monitor.

Others

Causes

In dark places, noise may appear to maintain the brightness of the

LCD monitor. This does not affect the pictures you are recording.

This is a phenomenon called smear. It is a characteristic of

CCD and appears when the subject has a bright part.

Uneven colours may also appear around the smear. This is not a malfunction. It is recorded in motion pictures but is not recorded on still pictures.

When holding the edge of the LCD monitor, there may be some distortion, however this is not a malfunction. Moreover, this has no effect on the pictures taken or playback.

n

Flash

Conditions

Flash is not activated.

The flash is activated 2 times.

Causes

Make sure the flash is open.

Slide the [

<

OPEN] switch. (P42)

[SCENERY], [NIGHT SCENERY], [FIREWORKS], [STARRY

SKY], [AERIAL PHOTO] or [HIGH SENS.] in scene mode

(P61) is selected.

When you select red-eye reduction (P42), the flash is activated once before the actual recording to reduce the red-eye phenomenon (eyes of the subject appearing red in the picture) and then activated again for the actual recording.

n

Playback

Conditions

Pictures rotate unexpectedly.

The picture is not played back.

Causes

One of the features of this unit can automatically detect when you have turned the camera side on to take a picture, then rotate that picture for you when you play it back.

In some cases, the unit may detect that you have turned the camera side on, when in fact you are facing it up or down.

• Set [ROTATE DISP.] (P96) to [OFF] so that the camera does not rotate these kinds of pictures for you.

• You can use [ROTATE] (P96) to rotate the pictures when necessary.

123

VQT0Y60

Others

Conditions

Folder or file number appears as [–] and the display goes black.

The picture is displayed with a date different from the actual recording date in calendar playback.

Causes

The picture may have been changed on a computer or taken on a different manufacturer’s camera.

This problem can also occur if you remove the battery immediately after taking a picture or if the battery had very little charge left.

• You will need to reformat the card to delete this type of picture. (P105) (Remember that all data will be irretrievably erased when you format the card, so save your data and check the card before proceeding.)

• Pictures edited or rotated with a PC may be displayed in black in playback mode (P35), multi playback (P76) and calendar playback (P77).

Was the picture edited with a PC or recorded with a digital camera from another manufacturer?

This kind of picture may be displayed with a date different from the actual recording date in calendar playback. (P77)

Is the clock in the camera set properly? (P19)

For example, if the clock setting on the camera is different from the date and time set on the PC and you acquire pictures recorded with the camera to the PC and then write them back to the card, the pictures may be displayed with dates different from the actual recording dates in calendar playback etc.

n

Connecting to a TV, computer or printer

Conditions

The picture does not appear on the television.

The TV screen is disturbed or displayed in monochrome.

The display areas on the

TV screen and the camera’s LCD monitor are different.

Cannot play motion pictures on a television.

Cannot upload pictures to your computer.

Causes

Is the camera connected to the TV correctly?

Check it.

Set the TV to video input mode.

Depending on the TV model, the area display may be smaller so the picture may be stretched horizontally or vertically and the top and bottom or left and right of the picture may be cut off when it is displayed. This is due to the TV specifications and is not a malfunction.

You cannot play motion pictures if you have inserted the card into a card slot on a television.

Connect the camera to the television with the included AV cable and play the pictures on this unit. (P113)

Check the connections.

Check that the computer has correctly recognised the camera.

Set the camera’s mode dial to a mode other than Print mode

(P106).

124

VQT0Y60

Others

Conditions

The computer does not recognise the card.

(The built-in memory is recognised.)

The pictures cannot be printed with printers.

Disconnect the USB connection cable, then insert the card and reconnect the cable.

Causes

The sides of printed images are cut off.

The picture size does not fit the TV screen.

Does the printer support PictBridge? You cannot print pictures with printers which do not support PictBridge. (P109)

Set the camera’s mode dial to Print mode (P109).

• If your printer has trimming and border settings, change the settings so that there is no trimming and no border. (Read your printer’s operating instructions.)

• Some photography shops can handle pictures shot in the

[ j

] aspect ratio (P59). Enquire before sending them for printing.

Check the [TV ASPECT] setting on this unit. (P24) n

Others

Conditions

Unreadable language was selected by mistake.

The camera will make sounds caused by internal mechanical movement when it is shaken.

Cannot change the auto review setting.

Causes

Press [MENU/SET], select the [SETUP] menu icon [ ] and then select the [ { ] icon to set the desired language. (P24)

The sound arises when the lens moves. This is not a malfunction.

A certain part of the picture blinks.

When the shutter button is pressed halfway, a red lamp turns on sometimes.

The AF assist lamp does not turn on.

You cannot change the auto review setting when using auto bracket, using burst modes, shooting motion pictures, using

[SELF PORTRAIT] in scene mode, recording sound and setting quality to [RAW].

• Is [HIGHLIGHT] set to [ON]? (P23)

–This appears due to the highlight display function which shows white saturated areas. (P39)

In dark places, the AF assist lamp (P89) lights red to make it easier to focus on a subject.

Is [AF ASSIST LAMP] on the [REC] mode menu set to [ON]?

(P89)

Are you taking pictures in dark places? The AF assist lamp does not turn on in bright places.

The AF assist lamp does not turn on when [SCENERY],

[NIGHT SCENERY], [SELF PORTRAIT], [FIREWORKS] or

[AERIAL PHOTO] in scene mode (P61) is selected.

125

VQT0Y60

Conditions

The camera gets hot.

The lens clicks.

The clock setting is reset.

Strange colours appear around the edge of the image.

File numbers are not created in order.

The file numbers are recorded in ascending order.

Others

Causes

The camera may get a little warm while you are using it, but this is normal.

When brightness has changed due to the zoom or the movement of the camera or other, the lens may click and the picture on the screen may be drastically changed, however, the pictures are not affected.

The sound is caused by automatic adjustment of the aperture. It is not a malfunction.

If you do not use the camera for a long time, the clock setting may be reset. When the message [PLEASE SET THE

CLOCK] appears, set the clock again. (P19)

When you take a picture before setting the clock, [0:00 0. 0.

0] is recorded.

Depending on the zoom magnification, the picture may have some coloured fringes around the subject. This is called chromatic aberration and may be more visible when recording distant subjects. However this is not a malfunction.

Certain operations cause pictures to be saved in folders with different numbers. (P107)

If the battery is inserted or removed when the camera is not turned off, the recorded folder numbers are lost.

However if you turn the camera on again and record pictures, the recorded folder numbers are different from the prior recorded folder numbers.

• When you select [RAW], the recording pixel size is fixed to the maximum number of recording pixels for each aspect ratio.

• The number of recordable pictures and the available recording time displayed on the LCD monitor may not decrease in order.

• This unit does not support recording motion pictures on MultiMediaCards.

• The extra optical zoom does not work in [HIGH SENS.] (P67) in scene mode so the picture size for [EZ] is not displayed.
