If you do not accept the terms of this Agreement, immediately return the unopened package of storage medium and enclosed materials (printed matter, external package, and all others) to your dealer, or return only the package of storage medium to your dealer. IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacture of your video product, safety is a major factor in the design of every instrument. But, safety is your responsibility too.
This page lists important information that will help to assure your enjoyment and proper use of DVD Palmcorder and accessory equipment. An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn. Power Lines — An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. Page 7: Cautions When Using. Cautions When Using Handle the liquid crystal display (LCD) with care: • The LCD is a very delicate display device: Do not press its surface with force, hit it or prick it with a sharp object. • If you push the LCD surface, unevenness in display may occur.
If unevenness does not disappear, turn the DVD Palmcorder off, wait for a few moments, and then turn it on again. Heat on surface of product: • The surface of the DVD Palmcorder will be slightly warm, but this does not indicate a fault.
Screen on connected TV: • Never leave the disc navigation screen, still image or camera image displayed on your TV to which the DVD Palmcorder is connected: Doing so could result in displayed image retention or phosphor degradation of TV screen. Be careful of moisture condensation: • When you move the DVD Palmcorder between places where the difference in temperatures is great - such as entering a lodge from a ski slope or going out of a cooled room or vehicle - condensation (vapor in air warmed or cooled to water droplets) could occur on the lens and/or inside the DVD Palmcorder.
