Note If you press DISPLAY/TOUCH PANEL with DISPLAY set to V-OUT/LCD in the menu settings, the picture from a TV or VCR will not appear on the LCD screen even when your camcorder is connected to the output jacks on the TV or VCR. When recording a close subject When REC LAMP is set to ON, the red camera recording lamp on the front of your camcorder may reflect on the subject if it is close. In this case, we recommend you set REC LAMP to OFF. In more than five minutes after removing the power source The PROGRAM AE, FLASH LVL, AUDIO MIX, WHT BAL, HiFi SOUND and COMMANDER items are returned to their default settings. Other menu items are held in memory even when the battery is removed.
Charging the battery pack
Be sure to charge the battery pack before you start using your camcorder. We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10 C to 30 C (50 F to 86 F) until the CHARGE lamp goes off. If you charge the battery outside of this temperature range, you may not be able to efficiently charge the battery pack. After charging is completed, either disconnect the cable from the DC IN jack on your camcorder or remove the battery pack.
Effective use of the battery pack
Battery pack performance decreases in low-temperature surroundings. So, the time that the battery pack can be used becomes shorter. We recommend the following to use the battery pack longer: Put the battery pack in a pocket to warm it up, and insert it in your camcorder immediately before you start taking shots. Use the large capacity battery pack (NP-FM70/QM71/FM90/FM91/QM91, optional). Frequently using the LCD panel or frequently operating playback, fast forward or rewind wears out the battery pack faster. We recommend using the large capacity battery pack (NP-FM70/QM71/FM90/FM91/QM91, optional). Be certain to turn the POWER switch to OFF (CHARGE) when not taking shots or playing back on your camcorder. The battery pack is also consumed when your camcorder is in tape recording standby or playback pause. Have spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected recording time, and make trial recordings before taking the actual recording. Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water resistant.
Remaining battery time indicator
If the power goes off although the remaining battery time indicator indicates that the battery pack has enough power to operate, charge the battery pack fully again so that the indication on the remaining battery time indicator is correct. Note, however, that the correct battery indication sometimes will not be restored if it is used in high temperatures for a long time or left in a fully charged state, or the battery pack is frequently used. Regard the remaining battery time indication as the approximate shooting time. The E mark indicating little remaining battery time sometimes flashes depending on the operating conditions or ambient temperature and environment even if the remaining battery time is about five to 10 minutes.
About the name i.LINK
i.LINK is a more familiar term for IEEE 1394 data transport bus proposed by SONY, and is a trademark approved by many corporations. IEEE 1394 is an international standard standardized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
i.LINK Baud rate
i.LINKs maximum baud rate varies according to the equipment. Three maximum baud rates are defined: S100 (approx. 100Mbps*) S200 (approx. 200Mbps) S400 (approx. 400Mbps) The baud rate is listed under Specifications in the instruction manual of each equipment. It is also indicated near the i.LINK on some equipment. The maximum baud rate of equipment on which it is not indicated such as this unit is S100. When units are connected to equipment having a different maximum baud rate, the baud rate sometimes differs from the indicated baud rate. *What is Mbps? Mbps stands for megabits per second, or the amount of data that can be sent or received in one second. For example, a baud rate of 100Mbps means that 100 megabits of data can be sent in one second.

To prepare the Remote Commander
Insert two size AA (R6) batteries by matching the + and polarities on the batteries to the + marks inside the battery compartment.
Notes on the Remote Commander Point the remote sensor away from strong light sources such as direct sunlight or overhead lighting. Otherwise, the Remote Commander may not function properly. Your camcorder works in the commander mode VTR 2. Commander modes 1, 2 and 3 are used to distinguish your camcorder from other Sony VCRs to avoid remote control misoperation. If you use another Sony VCR in the Commander mode VTR 2, we recommend changing the commander mode or covering the sensor of the VCR with black paper.
