This setting is suitable for measuring sensitivity conforming to EIA-639 (EIA* Standard for Low Light Sensitivity Measurement). *EIA : Electronic Industries Alliance Allows you to shoot dark scenes with no picture brightness adjustment.

If the lens is smeared or blurred, accurate focusing is not possible. Keep the lens clean, wiping with a piece of soft cloth if it gets dirty. When condensation occurs, wipe with a soft cloth or wait for it to dry naturally. When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom out first ( pg. 28).

When the focus level cannot be adjusted any farther or closer, or will blink.

White Balance Adjustment

A term that refers to the correctness of color reproduction under various lighting. If the white balance is correct, all other colors will be accurately reproduced.

SYMPTOM POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)

(cont.)

Although the SNAPSHOT Button is pressed, a still image is not stored in the built-in memory. Self-Timer Shooting is not available. When the number of remaining shots available reaches 0 (blinking), it becomes impossible to take your next shot. Perform DELETE function to remove some still images already stored in memory ( pg. 58). Pressing the Recording Start/Stop Button does not start recording in the Self-Timer Shooting procedure. Press the SNAPSHOT Button ( pg. 44). A still image is in the process of being stored in memory for approx. 2 seconds after the SNAPSHOT Button is pressed. During that time, it is impossible to take another shot. When the still image disappears and the scene you are currently aimed at appears on the screen, take another shot ( pg. 22).
It is not possible to shoot in sucession.
Although ALL is selected in the DELETE Menu Screen, all still images cannot be deleted. The Protect function is in effect for some still images. If they are not necessary, cancel the Protect function, then try deleting all still images again ( pg. 57).
Date/Time Insert is not performed while shooting a still image. Instant Titles are not displayed while shooting a still image. Some settings cannot be changed in the Menu Screen. It is not possible to display the date/time on a still image. It is not possible to display the Instant Titles on a still image. It is not possible to set REC TIME in the Menu Screen.
Since the camcorder is a microcomputer-controlled device, external noise and interference (from a TV, a radio, etc.) might prevent it from functioning properly. For example, when a still image you shot is stored in the camcorder's built-in memory, the above may cause the following: Although the remaining number of shots indicator shows that shooting is possible, a still image cannot be stored in memory after shooting. In such a case, initialize the memory by following steps 1 through 3 below. Please note that initialization deletes all the still images (including ones for which you performed the Protect function) stored in the camcorders memory. If you wish to keep any of the still images that are stored in memory, before initialization first transfer them to a PC and save them. If image data is corrupt, transfer is impossible.

Store cassettes
. make sure the cassette is positioned properly when inserting. do not load and unload the cassette repeatedly without allowing the tape to run at all. This slackens the tape and can result in damage. do not open the front tape cover. This exposes the tape to fingerprints and dust.
. away from heaters or other heat sources. out of direct sunlight. where they wont be subject to unnecessary shock or vibration. where they wont be exposed to strong magnetic fields (such as those generated by motors, transformers or magnets). vertically, in their original cases.
Memory Cards Battery Packs
The supplied battery pack is a lithium-ion battery. Before using the supplied battery pack or an optional battery pack, be sure to read the following cautions: To avoid hazards To properly use and store your memory cards, be sure to read the following cautions: During use
. make sure the memory card bears the SD or MultiMediaCard mark. make sure the memory card is positioned properly when inserting. never unload the memory card and never turn off the camcorder. away from heaters or other heat sources. out of direct sunlight. where they wont be subject to unnecessary shock or vibration. where they wont be exposed to strong magnetic fields (such as those generated by motors, transformers or magnets).
While the memory card is being accessed (during recording, playback, deletion, initialization, etc.)

Terminals

To prevent damage and prolong service life
. do not burn. do not short-circuit the terminals. When transporting, make sure the provided battery cap is attached to the battery. If the battery cap is misplaced, carry the battery in a plastic bag. do not modify or disassemble. do not expose the battery to temperatures exceeding 60C (140F), as this may cause the battery to overheat, explode or catch fire. use only specified chargers. do not subject to unnecessary shock. charge in an environment where temperatures are within the tolerances shown in the chart below. This is a chemical reaction type battery cooler temperatures impede chemical reaction, while warmer temperatures can prevent complete charging. store in a cool, dry place. Extended exposure to high temperatures will increase natural discharge and shorten service life. fully charge and then fully discharge the battery every 6 months when storing the battery pack over a long period time. remove from charger or powered unit when not in use, as some machines use current even when switched off.

How To Handle A CD-ROM

Take care not to soil or scratch the mirror surface (opposite to the printed surface). Do not write anything or put a sticker on either the front or back surface. If the CD-ROM gets dirty, gently wipe it with a soft cloth outward from the center hole. Do not use conventional disc cleaners or cleaning spray. Do not bend the CD-ROM or touch its mirror surface. Do not store your CD-ROM in a dusty, hot or humid environment. Keep it away from direct sunlight.
You have observed that pouring a cold liquid into a glass will cause drops of water to form on the glass outer surface. This same phenomenon occurs on the head drum of a camcorder when it is moved from a cool place to a warm place, after heating a cold room, under extremely humid conditions or in a place directly subjected to the cool air from an air conditioner. Moisture on the head drum can cause severe damage to the video tape, and can lead to internal damage to the camcorder itself.
