About care and storage of the lens
• Wipe the surface of the lens clean with a soft cloth
in the following instances:
– When there are fingerprints on the lens surface.
– In hot or humid locations
– When the lens is exposed to salty air such as at
the seaside.
• Store in a well-ventilated location subject to little
dirt or dust.
• To prevent mold, periodically clean the lens as
described above. It is recommended that you
operate your camcorder about once a month to
keep it in optimum state for a long time.
On charging the pre-installed
rechargeable battery
Your camcorder has a pre-installed
rechargeable battery to retain the date, time,
and other settings even when the POWER
switch is set to OFF (CHG). The pre-installed
rechargeable battery is always charged while
your camcorder is connected to the wall
outlet via the AC Adaptor or while the battery
pack is attached. The rechargeable battery
will be fully discharged in about 3 months
if you do not use your camcorder at all. Use
your camcorder after charging the pre-
installed rechargeable battery.
However, even if the pre-installed
rechargeable battery is not charged, the
camcorder operation will not be affected as
long as you are not recording the date.
Procedures
x
Connect your camcorder to a wall outlet
using the supplied AC Adaptor, and leave it
with the POWER switch set to OFF (CHG)
for more than 24 hours.
