Manual Shutter Speed Adjustment
(l 36) You may see vertical lines of light in the playback image of a brightly shining subject or highly reflective subject. During Normal Playback, transition from one scene to another may not appear smooth. Because the color and brightness of the playback image may become unstable, avoid recording under fluorescent light, mercury light, or sodium light. If you are using either Gain up Mode, Program AE Mode or MagicPix Function, you cannot adjust the shutter speed. If the shutter speed is adjusted manually, this setting will be cancelled. Manual Iris Adjustment (l 36) Depending on zoom magnification, the iris value may not be displayed correctly. If you are using Program AE Mode you cannot adjust the iris. If you attempt to adjust the Shutter Speed after setting the Iris, the value set for the Iris will be cancelled. White Balance (l 37) In the following cases, you cannot change White Balance: When you set [EFFECT1] of [DIGITAL EFFECT] Sub-Menu on the [CAMERA FUNCTIONS] Main-Menu to [GAIN UP] or [EFFECT2] to [SEPIA] or to [B/W]. When you set the Zoom to 10k or higher. During Digital Still Picture Mode. When you display a Menu. When you use the MagicPix. In the following cases, the  indication flashes: The flashing indicates that the previously adjusted White Balance setting is still kept. This setting will be kept until White Balance is adjusted again. You may not be able to achieve correct White Balance adjustment manually under weak illumination.
Digital Effect Functions (Camera Mode) (l 39)
It is not possible to use [MULTI], [P-IN-P], [WIPE], [MIX] or [TRAIL] of [EFFECT1] together with the digital modes of [EFFECT2] on the [DIGITAL EFFECT] Sub-Menu. If you set [EFFECT1] on [DIGITAL EFFECT] Sub-Menu to [GAIN UP], you need to adjust the focus manually. However, you cannot adjust the shutter speed and cannot select White Balance. You cannot use Sports Mode, Portrait Mode or Low Light Mode with Gain up Mode [GAIN UP]. If [EFFECT2] on the [DIGITAL EFFECT] Sub-Menu is set to [B/W] or [SEPIA], the selected White Balance Mode cannot be changed. Setting the Cinema Mode cancels the Picture-in Picture Mode and the Multi-Picture Mode. In the following cases, using the [EFFECT1] on the [DIGITAL EFFECT] Sub-Menu is not possible. When [PROGRESSIVE] is set to [ON] When the MagicPix Mode is set In the following cases, using the Digital Effect Function is not possible. Card Mode Title In Wipe Mode and Mix Mode (l 40) If either one of the following operations is carried out, stored images will be erased, and Wipe and Mix Functions cannot be used. Use the Camera Search Function Press the [STILL] Button Switch the [TAPE/CARD/CARD MODE] Selector. P-IN-P Mode (l 40) If the Palmcorder power is turned off, the smaller picture will disappear. A title cannot be inserted into the smaller picture. Multi-Picture Mode (l 41) When [PROGRESSIVE] on the [CAMERA SETUP] Sub-Menu is [ON], Multi-Picture Mode cannot be used. If the [MULTI] Button is pressed while self-recording Mirror mode (l 29) is used, the still picture is displayed from the upper right corner of the screen, but, in reality, the picture is recorded from the upper left corner as usual. The quality of images recorded in Multi Mode deteriorates slightly. Multi Mode cannot be used in still picture mode. The top and bottom of the Multi pictures will be cut off slightly.
Auto Focus Adjustment
The Auto Focus System automatically moves the internal focusing lens forward or backward and adjusts the focus so that the subject can be seen clearly. However, the Auto Focus System does not function properly for the following subjects or under the following recording conditions. Please use the Manual Focus Mode instead. 1) Recording a subject whose one end is located closer to the Palmcorder and the other end farther away from it Because Auto Focus makes adjustments at the center of an image, it may be impossible to focus on a subject that is located in both foreground and background. 2) Recording a subject behind dirty or dusty glass Because the focus is on the dirty glass, the subject behind the glass will not be in focus. 3) Recording a subject in dark surroundings Because the light information that comes through the lens decreases considerably, the Palmcorder may not focus correctly.
4) Recording a subject that is surrounded by objects with glossy surfaces or by highly reflective objects Because the Palmcorder focuses on the objects with glossy surfaces or on highly reflective objects, the recording subject may become blurry. 5) Recording a fast-moving subject Because the focus lens inside moves mechanically, it may not be able to keep up with the fast-moving subject. 6) Recording a subject with little contrast Because the Palmcorder achieves focus based upon the vertical lines of an image, a subject with little contrast, such as a white wall, may become blurry.
When a new (previously unrecorded) Cassette is inserted, the Time Code automatically starts from zero. If a recorded Cassette is inserted, the Time Code picks up from the point where the last scene was recorded. (In this case, when the Cassette is inserted, the zero display [0h00m00s00f] may appear, but the Time Code starts from the previous value.) The Time Code cannot be reset to zero. Unless the Time Code is continuously recorded from the beginning of a tape, accurate editing may not be possible. To ensure that the Time Code will be recorded with no breaks, we recommend the use of the Camera Search Function (l 28) or the Blank Search Function (l 45) before recording a new scene.
White Balance Adjustment
Depending on the type of light source, the colors recorded by the Palmcorder may be affected. In some cases, images may be recorded with a bluish or reddish hue. To minimize the effect of light on the subjects color, White Balance Adjustment becomes necessary.

Before Requesting Service (Problems and Solutions)
If you are experiencing one of the following problems with your Digital Palmcorder, it may be something you can correct yourself. Check the list below for Problems and Solutions.
The Palmcorder power cannot be turned on. The Palmcorder power turned off automatically.
Is the power source connected correctly? If you leave the Palmcorder in Recording Pause Mode for more than 5 minutes, the power is turned off automatically to protect the tape and to save the Battery power. Is the Battery low? Charge the Battery or attach a fully charged Battery. Press the [RESET] Button on the Palmcorder with a pointed object. If this does not solve the problem, first disconnect the power supply and wait for a minute or so, and then reconnect the power supply to turn the power back on. (If the above operation is performed when the [ACCESS] Lamp of the Card Slot is lit, the data on the Card may be damaged.) Is the Battery fully charged? Charge it with the AC Adaptor. Are you using the Battery in an extremely cold place? In cold places, the operating time of the Battery becomes shorter. Has the Battery worn out? If the operating time is still too short even after the Battery is fully charged, the Battery has worn out. If the DC Cable is connected to the AC Adaptor, charging cannot be performed. Disconnect the DC Cable. Is the accidental erasure protection tab on the Cassette open? If it is open (set to [SAVE]), recording cannot be performed. Is the tape wound to the end? Insert a new Cassette. Is the Palmcorder power turned on? Is the [CAMERA] Lamp on? If the [CAMERA] Lamp is not on, no recording function can be operated. Has condensation occurred? Wait until the [DEW DETECTED] Indication disappears.
