In some situations, different shooting angles may provide more dramatic results. Hold the camcorder in the desired position and tilt the LCD monitor in the most convenient direction. It can rotate 270 (90 downward, 180 upward).
Recording From The Middle Of A Tape
1) Play back a tape or use Blank Search ( pg. 14) to find the spot at which you want to start recording, then engage the Still Playback mode. ( pg. 14) 2) Set the Power Switch to A or M while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch, then start recording.
Open the LCD monitor and tilt it upward to 180 so that it faces forward, then point the lens toward yourself and start recording.
The time code cannot be reset. During fast-forwarding and rewinding, the time code indication does not move smoothly. The time code is displayed only when TIME CODE is set to ON. ( pg. 27)

Self Recording Time code 00:00:00 Time code Time code 05:43:21 00:00:00

If recording starts from a blank portion, the time code begins counting from 00:00:00 (minute:second:frame). If recording starts from the end of a previously recorded scene, the time code continues from the last time code number. If during recording a blank portion is left partway through the tape, the time code is interrupted. When recording is resumed, the time code starts counting up again from 00:00:00. This means the camcorder may record the same time codes as those existing in a previously recorded scene. To prevent this, perform Recording From The Middle Of A Tape (See the right column) in the following cases;
When shooting again after playing back a recorded tape. When power shuts off during shooting. When a tape is removed and re-inserted during shooting. When shooting using a partially recorded tape. When shooting on a blank portion located partway through the tape. When shooting again after shooting a scene then opening/ closing the cassette holder cover.
If you load a memory card already set as shown below in a printer compatible with DPOF, it will make prints of the selected still images automatically. To print images recorded on a tape, first dub them to a memory card. ( pg. 19)

When using the AC Adapter in areas other than the USA The provided AC Adapter features automatic voltage selection in the AC range from 110 V to 240 V. USING HOUSEHOLD AC PLUG ADAPTER In case of connecting the units power cord to an AC wall outlet other than American National Standard C73 series type use an AC plug adapter, called a Siemens Plug, as shown. For this AC plug adapter, consult your nearest JVC dealer.
To properly use and store your cassettes, be sure to read the following cautions: During use
. make sure the cassette bears the Mini DV mark. be aware that recording onto prerecorded tapes automatically erases the previously recorded video and audio signals. 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.
It is normal for the battery pack to be warm after charging, or after use. Temperature Range Specifications Charging: 10C to 35C (50F to 95F) Operation: 0C to 40C (32F to 104F) Storage: 20C to 50C (4F to 122F) The lower the temperature, the longer recharging takes.
