use and charging. This is not a 
malfunction. 

• Use the supplied cradle or AC adaptor 
for this unit. 

• Pull the plug out of the electrical outlet 
after completing the charge. 

• Do not disassemble or alter the cradle 
or AC adaptor. 

■ Battery indicator 

The remaining battery power is displayed 

on the LCD monitor in use. 

The indication is changed as follows 
EEZDI ^ (blinking) 
according to the consumption of the 
battery. 

When the indicator is shown as 

(blinking), the battery will be 
exhausted in a few minutes. Charge the 
battery. 


■ Charging time and available 
recording time 
(Recording condition)

(The battery should also be the same 
temperature) 

• The charge Lamp blinks while 
charging. (Blinks approx, every 2 
seconds when charging is normal.) 
When the charge Lamp blinks more 
quickly or slowly (or turns off), some 
abnormality may have occurred. The 
blinking speed suggests the following 
states. 

Blinking approx, every 6 seconds: 

• The ambient temperature or that of 
the battery itself is too high or too 
low. Charging proceeds, but will take 
a longer time. 

Blinking approx, every 0.5 seconds: 

Refer to P70. 

Turning off: 

Charging is completed. 

• If the charge Lamp turns off when 
charging is not completed, the AC 
Adaptor or the battery is probably 
defective. Contact your nearest 
Panasonic dealer.

68 


■ Battery 

The battery is a rechargeable lithium 
ion battery. Its ability to generate 
power is based upon the chemical 
reaction that takes place inside it. 

This reaction is susceptible to the 
surrounding temperature and 
humidity, and, if the higher or lower 
the temperature becomes, the more 
the battery will be affected. 

Be sure to detach the battery after 
use. 

• If it is left attached to this unit, a minute 
amount of current is consumed even 
when this unit power is off. If it is left for 
a long time, over discharge takes 
place. The battery may become 
unusable even after it is charged. 

Have spare batteries on hand when 
you use this unit outdoors. 

• In a cold place, the recordable time will 
be shorter. 

• When you travel, be sure to bring the 
supplied AC adapter and USB cradle 
for charging in the place you are 
visiting. 


If the battery is dropped, check that 

the terminal is not deformed. 

• If the battery attached to this unit with 
the terminal is deformed, it may 
damage the body of SD Multi Camera. 

Be sure to pull out the battery and the 

card, disconnect the plug after use. 

• Store the battery in a cool and dry 
place with a relatively stable 
temperature. 

(recommended temperature: 59 - 77°F 
(15-25X), 

recommended humidity: 40 - 60%) 

• Extremely high or low temperatures 
will shorten the life of the battery. 

• If the battery is kept in hot, humid, 
smoky or dusty places, the terminals 
may rust and cause malfunctions. 

• Store the battery in a completely 
discharged state. To store the battery 
for a long period of time, we 
recommend charging it once every 
year and storing it again after you 
completely use up the charged 
capacity. 


Do not throw the battery into a fire. 

• If you heat or burn the battery, it may 
cause an explosion. 

• The battery has a limited life. 


Cautions for Use (Continued) 


■ AC adaptor 

• If you use the AC adaptor near a radio 
(especially when you are tuning in AM 
stations), radio reception may be 
disturbed. Keep the AC adaptor 1 m or 
more away from radio. 

• When the AC adaptor is in use, it may 
generate whirring sounds. However, 
this is normal. 

• After use, be sure to disconnect the 
AC adaptor. (If it is left connected, 
about 0.1 W of current is consumed at 
most.) 

• Keep the electrodes of the AC adaptor 
clean at all times. 

Put this SD Multi Camera near the 
outlet to make it easy to reach for the 
interrupting device (plug). 

■ Charging error 

When the charge lamp blinks approx, 
every 0.5 seconds, it suggests the 
following states. 

• The ambient temperature or that of the 
battery itself is too high or too low. 
Charge the battery after warming the 
temperature of periphery or battery 
adequately. 

• The SD Multi Camera, battery or AC 
adaptor may be defective. Contact 
your nearest Panasonic dealer. 


■ Condensation 

When using the camera outdoors during 
very cold weather, dews can be formed 
on the camera and the lens when you 
return to a warm place. 

If condensation takes place, the lens may 
be fogged or the camera may not 
properly operated. Take care not to 
cause condensation and take the 
appropriate countermeasures. 

Causes of condensation 

Differences in temperature and humidity 
as shown below cause condensation. 

• When this unit is brought into a warm 
room from outdoors in the cold. 

• When this unit is brought inside a car 
from outside. 

• When warming a cold room suddenly. 

• When cool air from an air conditioner 
is directly blowing on the unit. 

• When the place is humid. 


When condensation has taken place: 

• Turn the power off and leave this unit in 
this condition for about 1 hour. When 
the camera become close to the 
ambient temperature, the fog 
disappears naturally. 

• When you move this unit from a cold 
place to a warm place, enclose the 
camera in a plastic bag, wait until the 
camera is warmed, and then take it out 
of the bag.

Blinking (when the card is being read), 
do not remove the card, turn the 
power off, or subject it to vibration or 
impact. 

Do not leave the card in piaces where 
there is high temperature or direct 
sunlight, or where eiectromagnetic 
waves or static eiectricity are easily 
generated. Do not bend, drop, or 
subject it to strong vibration. 

• If the above precautions are not taken, 
the card or the recorded content may 
be damaged. 

Be sure to puil out and store the card 
after use. 

• Keep the card in the storage bag to 
store or carry the card around. 

• Do not allow dirt, dust or water to enter 
the terminals on the back of the card. 
Do not touch it with your fingers.

■ LCD monitor 

• In a place with drastic temperature 
changes, condensation may form on 
the LCD monitor. Wipe it with a soft, 
dry cloth. 

• Do not push the LCD monitor strongly. 
It may cause unevenness and 
malfunctions to the monitor. 

• If this unit is extremely cold when you 
turn the power on, the image on the 
LCD monitor is slightly darker than 
usual at first. However, as the internal 
temperature increases, it goes back to 
the normal brightness. 


• Extremely high precision 
technology is employed to produce 
the LCD monitor screen featuring a 
total of approximately 76,800 
pixels. The result is more than 
99.99% effective pixels with a mere 
0.01% of the pixels inactive or 
always lit. However, this is not a 
malfunction and does not affect the 
recorded picture. 


■ Format 

• Format the card on this unit. If 
formatting the card using PC, use 
SD-Jukebox Ver.4 (supplied). 
Particularly for the Card containing 
music files, check in the card using 
SD-Jukebox Ver.4, with which the 
music files were recorded, then format 
it. (For details, read the operating 
instructions for SD-Jukebox Ver.4.) 

• Do not use PC (Explorer) to format it. 
Otherwise, it may not be recognized by 
this unit. 

• When using the card formatted with 
PC or the other equipment, format the 
card using this unit again.
