To replace the button-type battery of the Remote Commander
Insert CR2025 lithium battery by matching the + and on the battery to the + and terminals in the battery compartment.
WARNING Battery may explode if mistreated. Do not recharge, disassemble or dispose of in fire. CAUTION Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions. Notes On the Remote Commander The button-type battery CR2025 is used in the Remote Commander. Do not use a battery other than the CR2025. 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 DVD 2 Commander mode. Commander modes 1, 2 and 3 are used to distinguish your camcorder from other Sony DVD players to avoid erroneous remote control operation. If you use another Sony DVD player in the DVD 2 Commander mode, it is recommended that you change the Commander mode of the DVD player or cover the sensor of the DVD player with black paper.
