The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse, the value
of which is indicated on the pin face of the plug.
Should the fuse need to be replaced, an ASTA or BSI approved BS 1362 fuse must be used of the
same rating. If the fuse cover is detachable never use the plug with the cover omitted. If a
replacement fuse cover is required, ensure it is of the same colour as that visible on the pin face of
the plug. Fuse covers are available from your dealer.
DO NOT cut off the mains plug from this equipment. If the plug fitted is not suitable for the power
points in your home or the cable is too short to reach a power point, then obtain an appropriate
safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer.
If there is no alternative to cutting off the mains plug, ensure that you dispose of it immediately,
having first removed the fuse, to avoid a possible shock hazard by inadvertent connection to the
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured
BLUE or BLACK.
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured
BROWN or RED. On no account connect either of these wires to the terminal marked E or by the

Cautions When Using
Handle the liquid crystal display (LCD) with care:
The LCD is a very delicate display device: Do not press its surface with force, hit it or prick it with
a sharp object.
If you push the LCD surface, unevenness in display may occur. If unevenness does not disappear
soon, turn the DVD video camera/recorder off, wait for a few moments, and then turn it on again.
Do not place the DVD video camera/recorder with the open LCD screen down.
Close the LCD monitor when not using the DVD video camera/recorder.
Liquid crystal display (LCD) and viewfinder:
The LCD screen and viewfinder are the products of highly precise technology. Among the total
number of pixels (approx. 120,000 pixels for LCD monitor and equivalent to approx. 200,000 pixels
for viewfinder), 0.01% or less pixels may be missing (black dots) or may remain lit as coloured dots
(red, blue, green). This shows the limitations of the current technology, and does not indicate a
fault that will interfere with recording.
The LCD screen and viewfinder will be slightly dimmer than usual when the DVD video camera/
recorder is at low temperature, as in cold areas, or immediately after power is turned on. Normal
brightness will be restored when the temperature inside the DVD video camera/recorder rises.
Hold the DVD video camera/recorder correctly:
Do not hold the viewfinder or LCD monitor when lifting the DVD video camera/recorder: The
viewfinder or LCD monitor could detach and the DVD video camera/recorder may fall.
Do not subject the DVD video camera/recorder to impact:
This DVD video camera/recorder is a precision machine. Take great care that you do not strike it
against a hard object or let it fall.
When using a tripod, firmly secure the DVD video camera/recorder on it. Do not use the DVD
video camera/recorder with a tripod in a place where it is subject to severe vibrations or impact.
No sand or dust!
Fine sand or dust entering the DVD video camera/recorder or AC adapter/charger could cause
malfunctions or defects.
No water or oil!
Water or oil entering the DVD video camera/recorder or AC adapter/charger could cause electric
shock, malfunctions or defects.
