During Video Playback

Before Using This Camcorder
Make sure you only use cassettes with the Mini DV mark. This camcorder is designed exclusively for the digital video cassette. Only cassettes marked can be used with this unit. Remember that this camcorder is not compatible with other digital video formats. Remember that this camcorder is intended for private consumer use only. Any commercial use without proper permission is prohibited. (Even if you record an event such as a show, performance or exhibition for personal enjoyment, it is strongly recommended that you obtain permission beforehand.) Before recording important video, be sure to make a trial recording. Play back your trial recording to make sure the video and audio have been recorded properly. We recommend cleaning your video heads before use. If you havent used your camcorder for a while, the heads may be dirty. We recommend periodically cleaning the video heads with a cleaning cassette (optional). Be sure to store your cassette tapes and camcorder in the proper environment. Video heads can become dirty more easily if your cassette tapes and camcorder are stored in a dusty area. Cassette tapes should be removed from the camcorder and stored in cassette cases. Store the camcorder in a bag or other container. Use SP (Standard) mode for important video recordings. LP (Long Play) mode lets you record 50% more video than SP (Standard) mode, but you may experience mosaic-like noise during playback depending on the tape characteristics and the usage environment. So, for important recordings, we recommend using SP mode. It is recommended that you use JVC brand cassette tapes. Your camcorder is compatible with all brands of commercially available cassette tapes complying with the MiniDV standard, but JVC brand cassette tapes are designed and optimized to maximize the performance of your camcorder. Also read CAUTIONS on pages 43 45.

Zooming is possible to a maximum of 800X, or it can be switched to 25X magnification using the optical zoom. ( pg. 23) Zoom magnification of over 25X is done through Digital image processing, and is therefore called Digital Zoom. During Digital zoom, the quality of image may suffer. Macro shooting (as close as approx. 5 cm to the subject) is possible when the Power Zoom Lever is set all the way to W. Also see TELE MACRO in MANUAL Menu on page 24. When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom out first.

Dubbing To A Video Unit Equipped With A DV Connector (Digital Dubbing)
It is also possible to copy recorded scenes from the camcorder onto another video unit equipped with a DV connector. Since a digital signal is sent, there is little if any image or sound deterioration.
1 Make sure all units are turned off. 2 Connect this camcorder to a video unit
equipped with a DV input connector using a DV cable as shown in the illustration.
3 Start playback on the camcorder. ( pg. 20) 4 At the point you want to start dubbing, start
recording on the video unit. (Refer to the video units instruction manual.)
5 To stop dubbing, stop recording on the video
unit, then stop playback on this camcorder.
To DV OUT
It is recommended to use the AC Adapter as the power supply instead of the battery pack. ( pg. 13) If a blank portion or disturbed image is played back on the player during dubbing, the dubbing may stop so that an unusual image is not dubbed. Even though the DV cable is connected correctly, sometimes the image may not appear in step 4. If this occurs, turn off the power and make connections again. When using a DV cable, be sure to use the optional JVC VC-VDV204U DV cable.

Connection To A Personal Computer
It is also possible to transfer still/moving images to a PC with a DV connector by using the software equipped with the PC or commercially available software. If you are using a Windows XP, you can use Windows Messenger to conduct video conferences over the Internet, using a camcorder. For details, refer to the help for the Windows Messenger.
The Black & White Fader does not work.
The Sepia (SEPIA) or Monotone (MONOTONE) mode is activated. HDisengage the Sepia (SEPIA) and Monotone (MONOTONE). ( pg. 34)
The image looks like the shutter speed is too slow.

Coloured bright spots appear all over the LCD monitor or the viewfinder.
The LCD monitor and the viewfinder are made with high-precision technology. However, black spots or bright spots of light (red, green or blue) may appear constantly on the LCD monitor or the viewfinder. These spots are not recorded on the tape. This is not due to any defect of the unit. (Effective dots: more than 99.99 %)
The POWER/CHARGE lamp on the camcorder does not light during charging.
Charging is difficult in places subject to extremely high/low temperatures. HTo protect the battery, it is recommended to charge it in places with a temperature of 10C to 35C. ( pg. 43) The battery pack is not attached firmly. HDetach the battery pack once again and re-attach it firmly. ( pg. 11)
The cassette will not load properly.
The batterys charge is low. HInstall a fully charged battery. ( pg. 11)
