The Memory Stick

112

The internal rechargeable button 
battery

This camera has an internal rechargeable 
button battery for maintaining the date and 
time and other settings regardless of 
whether the power is on or off. 
This rechargeable button battery is 
continually charged as long as you are using 
the camera. However, if you use the camera 
for only short periods it discharges 
gradually, and if you do not use the camera 
at all for about one month it becomes 
completely discharged. In this case, be sure 
to charge this rechargeable button battery 
before using the camera. 
Note that even if this rechargeable button 
battery is not charged, you can still use the 
camera as long as you do not record the date 
and time. 

How to charge

Connect the camera to a wall outlet (wall 
socket) using the AC Adaptor (not 
supplied), or install the charged nickel-
metal hydride batteries, or new alkaline 
batteries and leave the camera for 24 hours 
or more with the power turned off.

The rechargeable button battery is located 
inside the battery insertion slot. Never remove 
the rechargeable button battery.
