Precautions for Proper Use
Supply voltage Make sure that the power is between 11 V and 15 V DC. If the power voltage is too low, abnormal color and increased noise may occur. Allowable ambient temperature and humidity Be sure to use this device within the allowable temperature range of 0C to 40C and a relative humidity of 30% to 80%. Using this device at a temperature or humidity outside the allowable ranges could result not only in malfunction but the impact on the CCD elements could be serious as small white spots may be generated. Strong electromagnetic waves or magnetism Noise may appear in the picture or audio and/or the colors may be incorrect if the camera is used near a radio or television transmitting antenna, in places where strong magnetic fields are generated by transformers, motors, etc., or near devices emitting radio waves, such as transceivers or cellular phones. Use of wireless microphone near the camera When a wireless microphone or wireless microphone tuner is used near the camera during recording, the tuner could pick up noise. Avoid using or placing this device in places; subject to extreme heat or cold; with excessive dirt or dust; with high humidity or moisture; subject to smoke or vapour such as near a cooking stove; subject to strong vibrations or on an unstable surface; also do not leave this device for long hours in a parked car under direct sunlight or near room heating equipment. Do not leave this device where it is subject to radiation or X-rays or where corrosive gasses occur. Protect this device from being splashed with water (especially when shooting in the rain). Protect this device from being wet when shooting on a beach. In addition, salt and sand may adhere to the camera body. Be sure to clean the camera after use. Protect this device against penetration of dust when using it in a place subject to sandy dust. Optical performance of lens Due to the optical performance of the lens, color divergence phenomena (magnification chromatic aberration) may occur at the periphery of the image. This is not a camera malfunction. Noise may appear in the viewfinder when switching between the playback picture and the EE picture. Use this device in an upright position. If placed on its side, heat release efficiency will deteriorate, adversely affecting the tape transport. Depending on circumstances the tape may also be damaged. Vibrations Colors may fail to appear and/or the image and sound may be disturbed during VTR playback in locations subjected to strong vibrations. Precautions for transportation Do not drop or hit this device against a hard object. Remove the videocassette before transporting this device.
Do not insert an object other than a videocassette in the cassette insertion slot. Be sure to close the cassette cover when this device is not to be used for a long period. Do not set the POWER switch to OFF or remove the power cable during recording or playback. Otherwise the tape may be damaged. The sensitivity level of the provided microphone is set lower than the reference input (60 dBs) setting. When this device is not in use, be sure to set the POWER switch to OFF in order to reduce power consumption. Cleaning the body: Wipe body with a dry, soft cloth. To prevent deformation of the body, etc. and to avoid operation hazards, do not allow volatile liquids such as benzine and thinner to touch the body, and do not wipe it with a cloth soaked in such a liquid. When it is extremely dirty, soak the cloth in a solution of neutral detergent, wipe the body with it, and then use a clean cloth to remove the detergent. The camera may not show stable pictures in the period immediately after the power is turned on, but this is not a malfunction. A sound occurs when the built-in head cleaner that runs when you load or eject a videocassette operates, but this is not a malfunction. The LCD monitor and the viewfinder screen The LCD monitor and the viewfinder screen are manufactured using high-precision technology. Black spots may appear on the LCD monitor and the viewfinder screen, or red, blue, green and/or white spots may not turn off. However, this is not a malfunction and these spots are not recorded on the tape. If you use this device continuously for a long period of time, the characters displayed in the viewfinder may temporarily remain on the screen. This is not recorded on the tape. In addition, they are no longer displayed if you turn the power off and then on again. If you use this device in a cold location, the images may appear to lag on the screen, but this is not a malfunction. This is not recorded on the tape. Do not insert fingers or foreign objects into the cassette insertion slot as this may result in personal injury or damage to the mechanism. To prevent damage to the connectors, use this device with the connector covers on when you are not using the video/ audio signal output connectors.

Routine and Periodical Maintenance
The GY-HD250/GY-HD251 incorporates precision mechanical parts, which will collect dirt, wear out and deteriorate as this device is used. After this device has been used for a long period even in a normal environment, the heads, drums and tape transport mechanisms also collect dirt. Especially, dust which penetrates the inside of the VTR section during outdoor use will promote the wear and deterioration of mechanical parts by causing poor contact between tape and heads or failing to maintain the video and audio quality at high levels. To prevent wear and deterioration, clean the mechanical parts using a head cleaning tape as routine maintenance. However, cleaning with a head cleaning tape alone is not enough for cleaning the entire tape transport mechanism, so it is also recommended to apply periodical maintenance (inspection) to prevent the sudden occurrence of failure. As the replacement, adjustment and servicing of parts require advanced skill and equipment, please consult the person in charge of professional video equipment at your nearest JVCauthorized service agent.
The maintenance contents vary depending on the operating environment and method. Therefore, the data in the chart should be considered as a reference. Time management The accumulated running time of this device can be confirmed with the hour meter display (which shows the accumulated drum and fan motor running time). X See How to Display the Hour Meter on page 111. For consultations related to the maintenance planning or cost, please contact the person in charge of professional video equipment at your nearest JVC-authorized service agent.
Precautions for Use of Head Cleaning Tape
Please use cleaning tape produced by JVC. Adhere to the following precautions when using the head cleaning tape.
1. Insert the cleaning tape.
To maintain beautiful pictures and sound, be sure to use a head cleaning tape to clean the head periodically. X See Precautions for Use of Head Cleaning Tape. If head cleaning is not performed periodically, a type of mosaic noise called block noise may appear in the picture or sound may be interrupted.

Backup Recording of the GY-HD250/GYHD251s Camera Image and Sound Through the IEEE1394 Connector
The GY-HD250/GY-HD251s camera image and sound can be recorded for backup on another component that is equipped with IEEE1394 connector.
Backup unit Place in HDV/DV signal input mode. * Depending on the used component, it may be necessary to set REMOTE SELECT. When BR-HD50 is used, set the Backup Recording function to OFF. Also, set REM SEL HDV/DV in the REMOTE[1/2] menu of the BR-HD50 to ON or LOC+REM. Insert the tape and set to STOP or REC PAUSE status. CAUTION Set the IEEE1394 switch on both devices to either HDV or DV. Start recording after making sure that both devices are properly connected. If the RET button is pressed during backup recording, output from the IEEE1394 terminal is stopped, the image is switched to the image recorded on this device, interrupting the backup recording image.
Use the GY-HD250/GY-HD251 as the master unit. Connect the master unit and the backup unit with a IEEE1394 cable.
Start and stop of recording on the backup unit takes place in accordance with the operation of the REC/VTR trigger button on the master unit. (Depending on the GY-HD250/GY-HD251 or the backup unit, the image, audio, and/or time code may deviate from what they should be at the points where the recording is started or stopped.) MEMO When the backup recording is started, the TRIGGER TO DV or TRIGGER TO HDV indication is shown on the LCD or in the viewfinder for approx. 3 seconds. When the Series Recording function of BR-HD50 is used, the GY-HD250/GY-HD251s 1394 REC TRIG. item should be set to OFF. If the backup device is equipped with a feature to record time codes input from the IEEE1394 connector (TC DUPLICATE feature), time code data the same as on the master side can be recorded. If the master unit tape is paused or stopped when the master unit time code running mode is in REC RUN mode, the time code for the slave unit stops. When using BR-HD50 as a backup device and switching GY-HD250/GY-HD251 from the playback mode to the record mode, noise will be noticed on the monitor output screen of BR-HD50 (backup will be correctly recorded).
The synchronous video signal is momentarily disturbed when the REC item setting is switched. On the E model, the video format is fixed at HDV-HD24P when the FRAME RATE item is set to 24. [HDVHD24P] is displayed.

VIDEO FORMAT[1/2] Menu Screen (Contd)
* This is not displayed in VTR mode. Item
Sets the screen size for the recording video signal. (Can only be displayed and set in camera mode) 4:3 : Outputs the video with an aspect ratio of 4:3. 16:9 : Outputs the video with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The resolution in the vertical direction drops compared to 4:3 video.
When the format setting is HDV, the ASPECT item is fixed at 16:9. ([16:9] is displayed.) The synchronous video signal is momentarily disturbed when the ASPECT item setting is switched. HDV PB OUTPUT When playing back an HDV recorded tape, set video format for component output from the Y/PB/PR terminal or SDI output from the HD/SD-SDI output terminal. You can set the following depending on the FRAME RATE of the HDV recorded tape.
NATIVE 720P 1080I NTSC PAL
Outputs the signal being recorded on the tape. Converts the signal being recorded on tape to 720p and outputs it. Converts the signal being recorded on tape to 1080i and outputs it. Converts the signal being recorded on tape to 480i and outputs it. Converts the signal being recorded on tape to 576i and outputs it.
If you convert video recorded in HDV format to DV format and output it, the colors may change. This item is also applied to EE images when HDV signals are input to the IEEE1394 terminal. Fixed at NATIVE during DV recorded tape playback or DV signal input. DOWN CON. [HDV] Set the style to display down-converted images in aspect ratio 4:3. SQUEEZE : Image that is squeezed horizontally is displayed. LETTER : Wide image with the top and bottom blackened is displayed.
This setting is only valid in HDV mode. In DV mode, the style becomes SQUEEZE regardless of the setting of this item.
