Handle the liquid crystal display (LCD) with
- The LCD is a very delicate display device:
Do not press its surface with excessive
force, hit it or prick it with a sharp object.
- If you push the LCD surface, display
unevenness may occur. If unevenness does
not disappear, turn the camcorder off, wait
for a few moments, and then turn it on again.
- Do not place the camcorder with the open
LCD screen down.
- Close the LCD monitor when not using the
Liquid crystal display:
- The LCD screen is a product of high
precision technology. Out of the total
pixels (approx. 230,000 pixels of an LCD
monitor ), 0.01% or less pixels may be out
(black dots) or may remain lit as coloured
dots (red, blue, and green). This shows the
limitations of the current technology, and
does not indicate a fault that will interfere
- The LCD screen will be slightly dimmer
than usual when the camcorder is at low
temperature, as in cold areas, or right after
the power is turned on. Normal brightness
will be restored when the temperature
inside the camcorder rises. Note that this
will have no effect on the image in a storage
media, so there is no cause for concern.
Hold the camcorder correctly:
- Do not hold the camcorder by the LCD
monitor when lifting it: the LCD monitor
could detach and the camcorder may fall.
