Maintenance of the unit
When the front panel or case becomes dirty, wipe with a soft, dry
cloth.
Do not use thinner, benzine, alcohol, etc. for these agents may
cause discoloration.
Note on the built-in battery
· For the replacement of the built-in battery, contact your dealer.
· The battery built into this unit discharges spontaneously even
when this unit is not used. This means that the built-in battery
may be exhausted completely when this unit is left unused for
a long period. If this happens, recharge the battery before using
this unit.
· The battery recharging time is variable depending on the
condition of the battery and ambient temperature.
· The available playback time reduces when this unit is used under
low temperatures.
· The built-in battery can be recharged for about 500 times. (This is
a reference value and is not guaranteed.)
· The built-in battery is a consumable part, and the available
playback time reduces gradually after repeated use. If the
available playback time becomes very short even after the battery
has been recharged fully, the battery may be degraded; replace it
with new one.
· Kenwood will not assume any liabilities for the alteration or loss of
data caused due to complete discharging of the built-in battery.
· The built-in battery is a lithium ion battery.
It is free from the memory effect of Ni-Cd and nickel-hydrogen
batteries, with which the capacity decreases if the battery is
charged or discharged incompletely for several times.
The built-in battery therefore accepts additional charging before
it has exhausted completely.
Storage and maintenance of SD card
Before storage
· Be sure to put the SD card in the case before storing it.
· Do not leave the SD card in a place with extremely high
temperature (under direct sunlight, etc.) or extremely high
humidity.
When the SD card gets dirty
· Wipe lightly with a soft cloth, etc.
· Do not use lacquer thinner, benzine or alcohol.
Other cautions
· Do not open or modify the SD card.
· Do not peel off the label from the SD card.
· Do not attach a label or sticker on the SD card.
· Do not touch the metallic terminals on the backside with a finger
or metallic object.
Note on disposal/transfer of SD card
The "Format" and "Delete" functions of this unit or a PC simply
change the file management information and do not erase the
data in the SD card completely. Before disposing of or transferring
the SD card, it is recommended to destroy it physically or erase
the internal data completely using commercially available PC data
erasing software.
It is the user's responsibility to manage the data in the SD card
properly.
SD card (LOCK switch)
The SD card has a switch for protecting the card against data write.
Set the switch to the LOCK position to protect the data in the card.
Set the switch to the unlock position before recording, transferring,
editing or erasing the data.
