SOME DO’S AND DON’TS ON THE SAFE USE 
OF EQUIPMENT
This equipment has been designed and 
manufactured to meet international safety 
standards but, like any electrical equipment, 
care must be taken if you are to obtain the 
best results and safety is to be assured.
DO read the operating instructions before you 
attempt to use the equipment.
DO ensure that all electrical connections (including 
the mains plug, extension leads and 
interconnections between pieces of equipment) are 
properly made and in accordance with the 
manufacturer’s instructions. Switch off and withdraw 
the mains plug when making or changing 
connections.
DO consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt 
about the installation, operation or safety of your 
equipment.
DO be careful with glass panels or doors on 
equipment.
DON’T continue to operate the equipment if you are 
in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is 
damaged in any way — switch off, withdraw the 
mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON’T remove any fixed cover as this may expose 
dangerous voltages.
DON’T leave equipment switched on when it is 
unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is 
designed for unattended operation or has a standby 
mode. Switch off using the switch on the equipment 
and make sure that your family knows how to do 
this. Special arrangements may need to be made 
for infirm or handicapped people.
DON’T use equipment such as personal stereos or 
radios so that you are distracted from the 
requirements of road safety. It is illegal to watch 
television whilst driving.
DON’T listen to headphones at high volume, as 
such use can permanently damage your hearing.
DON’T obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for 
example with curtains or soft furnishings. 
Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life 
of the equipment.
DON’T use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs 
with wood screws — to ensure complete safety 
always fit the manufacturer’s approved stand or legs 
with the fixings provided according to the 
instructions.
DON’T allow electrical equipment to be exposed to 
rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL
● NEVER let anyone especially children push 
anything into holes, slots or any other opening in 
the case — this could result in a fatal electrical 
shock;
● NEVER guess or take chances with electrical 
equipment of any kind — it is better to be safe 
than sorry! 
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 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.
