Contents of the recording cannot be compensated if recording or playback is not made due to a malfunction of the camcorder, MiniDisc, etc.
Step 1 Preparing the power supply
Charging the battery pack
Use the battery pack after charging it for your camcorder. Your camcorder operates only with the InfoLITHIUM battery pack (L series). If you want to use the camcorder right away indoors, use on the AC adaptor/charger (p. 15).
(1) Set the mode change switch to CHARGE. (2) Connect the power cord to the AC adaptor/charger. (3) Connect the power cord to a wall outlet. A beep sounds and the display window lights up. (4) Place the battery pack on the AC adaptor/charger with the b mark facing the terminal shutter. (5) Slide the battery pack in the direction of the arrow. Press the battery pack until the terminal shutter enters completely into the AC adaptor/charger.
Charging begins. When the remaining battery indicator becomes and the CHARGE lamp lights up, normal charge is completed. For full charge, which allows you to use the battery slightly longer than normal charge, leave the battery pack attached until the CHARGE lamp goes out. Remove the battery pack when required. It can be used even if the charging is not completed.
3 4, 5
To remove the battery pack
Slide the battery pack in the opposite direction of installing, then lift it straight out.
Notes When the mode change switch is set to VTR/CAMERA during charging, charging stops. If the CHARGE lamp does not light or flash, check that the battery pack is correctly attached to the AC adaptor/charger. If it is not attached it will not be charged. When you install the battery pack, be sure to not hit it to the terminal of the AC adaptor/charger. Be sure that nothing metallic comes into contact with the metal parts of the unit or connecting plate. If it does, a short may occur and the unit may be damaged.
The following table shows the charging time for the battery pack which is discharged completely.
Battery pack NP-F550 (supplied) Full charge (Normal charge) 115 (55)
Approximate minute to charge an empty battery pack fully (Full charge). Approximate minute in parentheses indicates the time when you charge normally (Normal charge). The charging time may differ depending on the condition of the battery pack or the temperature of the environment. Remaining battery indicator

Step 1 Preparing the power supply Installing the battery pack
Install the battery pack to use your camcorder outdoors.
(1) Slide OPEN (BATT) down to open the battery compartment lid. (2) With the V mark pointing down, insert the battery pack until it clicks. (3) Shut the lid.
Open the lid and push the catch.
Note Put your hand by the battery compartment lid to prevent the battery pack from dropping. Remaining battery time indicator of the camcorder Approximate time remaining for continuous recording will be displayed on the LCD screen or in the viewfinder. The time may not be correct depending on the condition or environment the camcorder is used. It will take about 1 minute for the camcorder to display a correct remaining time when you open or close the LCD screen. The remaining time displayed on the camcorder may differ from that on the AC adaptor/charger.
Step 1 Preparing the power supply Connecting to a wall outlet
When you use your camcorder for a long time, we recommend that you power it from a wall outlet using the AC adaptor/charger.
(1) Set the mode change switch to VTR/CAMERA. (2) Connect the power cord to a wall outlet. (3) Connect the power cord to the AC adaptor/charger. (4) Connect the connecting cord to the DC OUT connector of the AC adaptor/ charger. (5) Install the connecting cord to the camcorder. Insert the connecting adaptor until it clicks. Pass the cord through the cord shutter so that the cord is not caught by the battery lid.
To disconnect the connecting cord
Notes If you set the mode change switch to CHARGE while operating the camcorder, the power supply to the camcorder stops. Be sure that nothing metallic comes into contact with the metal parts of the AC adaptor/charger. If it does, a short may occur and the AC adaptor/charger may be damaged. You cannot charge the battery pack attached to the AC adaptor/charger while supplying the power to the camcorder. Keep the AC adaptor/charger away from the camcorder if the picture is disturbed. The power cord must only be changed at an authorized service shop. The AC adaptor/charger is not disconnected from the AC power source (house current) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the AC adaptor/charger itself has been turned off. Using a car battery Use Sony DC adaptor/charger DC-VQ800 (not supplied) or car battery adaptor DCC-L50 (not supplied).

If any solid object or liquid gets inside the casing, unplug your camcorder and have it checked by a Sony dealer before operating it any further. Avoid rough handling or mechanical shock. Be particularly careful of the lens. Do not touch the lens in the disc compartment. If the lens becomes dirty, playback may not be performed or pictures may dropout. To keep the lens away from dust, keep the disc lid shut except when you insert or eject a disc. To attach a tripod, use the supplied tripod attachment. If you do not use the tripod attachment, make sure that the tripod is securely attached and stable. Do not let sand get into your camcorder. When you use your camcorder on a sandy beach or in a dusty place, protect it from the sand or dust. Sand or dust may cause your camcorder to malfunction, and sometimes this malfunction cannot be repaired.
When a conversion lens is attached, do not look at the sun directly. If you have skin trouble after using the eyecup, stop using your camcorder and consult a doctor. Keep the input pen, the ferrite cores and the plastic tie of the cables out of the reach of children to prevent children from swallowing them.
If the camcorder is brought directly from a cold place to a warm place, moisture may condense inside and outside the camcorder. Using the camcorder in this condition may result in malfunction of the camcorder. If moisture condensation occurs, remove the battery, turn off the camcorder, and leave it for about one hour with the battery compartment open.
Note on moisture condensation Moisture may condense when you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place (or vice versa) or when you use your camcorder in a hot place as follows: You bring your camcorder from a ski slope into a warm place. You bring your camcorder from an air-conditioned car or room into a hot place outside. You use your camcorder after a squall or a rain shower. You use your camcorder in a place with high temperature and humidity. How to prevent moisture condensation When you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place, put your camcorder in a plastic bag and tightly seal it. Remove the bag when the air temperature inside the plastic bag has reached the surrounding temperature (after about one hour).
LCD screen (touch panel)
Use only the supplied input pen. Using another pen may damage the touch panel. Do not push the LCD screen too hard. Doing so may cause uneven color or malfunction of the LCD screen. If your camcorder is used in a cold place, a residual image may appear on the LCD screen. This is not a malfunction. The back of the LCD panel may heat up during operation. This is not a malfunction. Do not grab the LCD screen when you move or carry your camcorder. Doing so may cause malfunction of the LCD screen.
The supplied Remote Commander operates only this camcorder and cannot operate other model. It is not possible to operate this camcorder with a Remote Commander supplied with other model. If any problem occurs, unplug your camcorder and contact your nearest Sony dealer.
Precautions and maintenance information Maintenance
Clean the camcorder body with a dry soft cloth, or a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of solvent which may damage the finish.
Clean the lens with a commercially available blower.
If fingerprints or dust make the LCD screen dirty, we recommend using a LCD Cleaning Cloth (not supplied) to clean the LCD screen.
Charging the vanadium-lithium battery in your camcorder
Your camcorder is supplied with a vanadium-lithium battery installed so as to retain the date and time, etc., regardless of the setting of the POWER switch. The vanadiumlithium battery is always charged as long as you are using your camcorder. The battery, however, will discharge gradually if you do not use your camcorder. It will be completely discharged in about four months if you do not use your camcorder at all. Even if the vanadium-lithium battery is not charged, it will not affect the camcorder operation. To retain the date and time, etc., charge the battery if it is discharged. Charging the vanadium-lithium battery: Connect your camcorder to house current using the AC adaptor/charger supplied with your camcorder, and leave your camcorder with the POWER switch turned off for more than 24 hours.
Calibrating the LCD screen (touch panel)
If the touch panel does not react correctly when you touch it, calibrate the touch panel.
(1) Set the POWER switch to OFF. (2) Eject the disc. If you have connected other equipment, disconnect them. (3) Open the LCD panel. (4) While pressing DSPL and x together, set the POWER switch to PLAY/EDIT. (5) Touch the marks displayed on the LCD screen one by one.
(6) Turn the LCD panel over and close it to the camcorder body, marks displayed on the LCD screen one by one. (7) Touch the (8) Touch FINISH. The index display appears.
Structure of MiniDisc
The 2.5-inch MiniDisc (MD) is compact and easy to handle requiring less caution as it is encased in a plastic cartridge that looks like a 3.5-inch diskette.
MiniDiscs come in three types: MDs to enjoy music, MD DATA and MD DATA2 discs to record computer data, etc. Your camcorder uses MD DATA2 disc to record pictures. MD DATA2 disc Records and plays digital data of moving pictures, etc.
MD DATA disc Records and plays digital data of computers, etc.
Audio MDs Comes in two types: pre-mastered (pre-recorded) and recordable (blank). Premastered MDs are played like regular CDs.
MD DATA and MD DATA2 are registered trademarks of Sony Corporation. MD VIEW is a registered trademark of Sony Corporation for MD DATA2 discs.
Usable MDs with your camcorder
For recording and playing audio and picture: MD DATA2 For playing audio only: Audio MD You cannot use any other discs with your camcorder.
Notes on MDs
The MiniDisc (MD) is easy to handle requiring less caution about dust or fingerprints as it is encased in a plastic cartridge. However, if the cartridge is dusty or warped, a malfunction may occur. To keep the quality of the picture and sound, handle the MD as follows. Do not open the shutter to expose the MD. Close the shutter immediately if the shutter opens.
Do not leave the MD in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight. Do not leave the MD where sand may get into the MD such as at the beach. Wipe the disc cartridge with a dry cloth to remove dirt.
System limitations of the MD
The recording system in your camcorder is radically different from those used in cassette and DAT decks and the system has limitations as described below. Note, however, that these limitations are due to the inherent nature of the MD recording system itself and not to mechanical causes. The remaining recording time does not increase even after erasing numerous short tracks. Tracks under 8 seconds long are not counted, so erasing them may not increase the recording time. It takes a long time to save or edit pictures Saving and editing on a disc which has hundreds of recorded pictures will take a long time. The total recorded time and the remaining time on the MD may not reach the maximum recording time. Repeated editing may reduce the recordable time of the disc. The picture or sound may dropout while fast-forwarding or reversing the edited tracks. Tracks created through editing may exhibit picture or sound dropout during fastforwarding or reversing because high-speed playback takes more time to search the position on the disc when the tracks are scattered on the disc.
Notes Your camcorder conforms to the Video MD format.
An MD recorded by equipment without bearing Video MD logo cannot be used on your camcorder. An MD recorded a video signal other than NTSC system cannot be used on your camcorder.
If you run into any problem using your camcorder, use the following table to troubleshoot the problem. If the problem persists, disconnect the power source and contact your Sony dealer.
