Setup

When the OFF/ON switch is set to ON, the power 
can be turned on and off with the LCD monitor 
and the viewfinder when the unit is in video 
recording mode or picture recording mode.

∫ To turn on the power
Open the LCD monitor or extend the 
viewfinder.

The status indicator lights and the power turns 
on.

∫ To turn off the power
Close the LCD monitor and retract 
the viewfinder.

The status indicator goes off and the power turns 
off.
≥ The power will not turn off unless the LCD 

monitor is closed and the viewfinder is 
retracted.

≥ The power will not turn off while recording on a 

disc even if the LCD monitor is closed and the 
viewfinder is retracted.

Inserting/removing a disc

When inserting or removing the disc, fit the 
charged battery pack or connect the AC adaptor 
to the unit. The cover of the disc compartment 
will not open unless the unit is powered.

1

Fit the battery or connect the AC 
adaptor.

2

Slide the DISC EJECT lever once 
and release it.

When the power is turned on for the first time 
after changing the disc or battery, the unit 
carries out a recognition procedure to check 
that there are no problems with the disc.
This takes approximately 25 seconds with 
DVD-RAM.
If you want to start using the unit as soon as 
you turn on the power, do the following.
1) Turn on the power.
2) After “READING DISC...” disappears from 

the screen, turn off the power.

You can start recording approximately 
8 seconds after you turn on the power again.
≥ Depending on the condition of the disc, it 

may take longer than this.

≥ If the date and time are not set, it will take 

longer than usual before you can start 
recording.

How to turn the power on and off 
with the LCD monitor/viewfinder

Set the OFF/ON switch to OFF when the unit 
is not being used.
