the manufacturer.
10. Use only with the 
cart, stand, tripod, 
bracket, or table 
specified by the 
manufacturer, or 
sold with the 
apparatus. When a 
cart is used, use 
caution when 
moving the cart/
apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-
over.
11. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or 
when unused for long periods of time.
12. Refer all servicing to qualified service 
personnel. Servicing is required when the 
apparatus has been damaged in any way, such 
as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid 
has been spilled or objects have fallen into the 
apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to 
rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or 
has been dropped.
When the equipment is installed in a cabinet or on 
a shelf, make sure that it has sufficient space on 
all sides to allow for ventilation (10 cm (3-15/16")  
or more on both sides, on top and at the rear).
Do not block the ventilation holes.
(If the ventilation holes are blocked by a 
newspaper, or cloth etc. the heat may not be able 
to get out.)
No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, 
should be placed on the apparatus.
When discarding batteries, environmental 
problems must be considered and the local rules 
or laws governing the disposal of these batteries 
must be followed strictly.
The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or 
splashing.
Do not use this equipment in a bathroom or 
places with water.
Also do not place any containers filled with water 
or liquids (such as cosmetics or medicines, flower 
vases, potted plants, cups etc.) on top of this unit.
(If water or liquid is allowed to enter this 
equipment, fire or electric shock may be caused.)
Do not point the lens or the viewfinder directly into 
the sun. This can cause eye injuries, as well as 
lead to the malfunctioning of internal circuitry. 
There is also a risk of fire or electric shock.
CAUTION!
 
The following notes concern possible physical 
damage to the camcorder and to the user.
When carrying, be sure to always securely attach 
and use the provided strap. Carrying or holding 
the camcorder by the viewfinder and/or the LCD 
monitor can result in dropping the unit, or in a 
malfunction.
Take care not to get your finger caught in the 
cassette holder cover. Do not let children operate 
the camcorder, as they are particularly 
susceptible to this type of injury.
Do not use a tripod on unsteady or unlevel 
surfaces. It could tip over, causing serious 
damage to the camcorder.
CAUTION!
 
Connecting cables (Audio/Video, S-Video, etc.) to 
the camcorder and leaving it on top of the TV is 
not recommended, as tripping on the cables will 
cause the camcorder to fall, resulting in damage.
