Q Q Do not attempt to disassemble, alter, or directly solder the battery.
Q Q Do not put the battery in a fire, attempt to heat it, or use or leave it in a
high temperature environment such as next to a fire or inside a car. Do not
put it into water or the sea or allow it to get wet.
Q Q Do not attempt to pierce, hit, compress, drop, or subject the battery to any
other severe impact or force.
Q Q Do not use a battery that is significantly damaged or deformed.6
Warning
Q Q Turn off the power immediately in the event of abnormalities such as
smoke or unusual odors being emitted. Remove the battery as soon as
possible, being careful to avoid electric shocks or burns. If you are drawing
power from a household electrical outlet, be sure to unplug the power
plug from the outlet. Failure to observe this precaution could result in
fire or electric shocks. Contact the nearest service center at your earliest
convenience. Stop using the camera immediately if it is malfunctioning.
Q Q Turn off the power immediately if any metallic object, water, liquid, or oth-
er foreign object gets into the camera. Remove the battery and memory
card as soon as possible, being careful to avoid electric shocks or burns.
If you are drawing power from a household electrical outlet, be sure to
unplug the power plug from the outlet. Failure to observe this precaution
could result in fire or electric shocks. Contact the nearest service center
at your earliest convenience. Stop using the camera immediately if it is
malfunctioning.
Q Q If the monitor is damaged, avoid any contact with the liquid crystal inside it.
Follow the appropriate emergency measures below.
• SKIN: If any of the liquid crystal gets on your skin, wipe it off and rinse the
affected area thoroughly with water, then wash well with soap.
• EYES: If it gets in your eyes, wash your eyes with clean water for at least 15
minutes and seek medical advice immediately.
• INGESTION: If any of the liquid crystal is ingested, rinse the mouth out
thoroughly with water. Have the person drink a large amount of water and
induce vomiting. Seek medical assistance immediately.
Q Q Follow these precautions to prevent the battery from leaking, overheat-
ing, igniting, or exploding.
• Do not use a battery other than those specifically recommended for the
camera.
• Do not carry or store the battery together with metal objects such as ball-
point pens, necklaces, coins, and hairpins.
• Do not put the battery into a microwave or high pressure container.
• If leakage of battery fluid, a strange odor, color change, etc. is noticed
during use or during charging, remove the battery from the camera or
battery charger immediately and keep it away from fire.
Q Q Observe the following in order to prevent fire, electrical shock, or cracking
of the battery while charging.
• Use only the indicated power supply voltage. Also avoid the use of
multi-socket adapters and extension cords.
• Do not damage, bundle, or alter the AC plug cord. Also, do not place heavy
objects on, stretch, or bend the AC plug cord.
• Do not connect or disconnect the power plug with wet hands. Always grip
the plug section when disconnecting a power plug. Do not cover the cam-
era while charging the battery.7
Q Q Keep the battery and SD memory card used in the camera out of the reach
of children to prevent accidental swallowing. The battery and memory
card are harmful if swallowed. Seek medical assistance immediately.
Q Q Keep the camera out of the reach of children. For children, accidents may
occur because they cannot understand the contents of “Safety Precau-
tions” and “Precautions for Use” .
Q Q Do not touch the internal components of the camera if they become ex-
posed as a result of being dropped or damaged. The high-voltage circuitry
in the equipment could lead to electric shocks. Remove the battery as
soon as possible, being careful to avoid electric shocks or burns. Take the
camera to your nearest dealer or service center if it is damaged.
Q Q When using the camera in wet areas such as a kitchen, be careful not to
wet the inside of the camera. Failure to observe this precaution could re-
sult in fire or electric shocks.
Q Q Do not use the camera near flammable gases, gasoline, benzine, thinner,
or similar substances. Failure to observe this precaution could result in an
explosion, fire, or burns.
Q Q Do not use the camera in a location where usage is restricted or prohib-
ited, such as on airplanes. Failure to observe this precaution could result
in an accident.
Q Q Wipe off any dust that accumulates on the power plug. Failure to observe
this precaution could result in fire.
Q Q When using a household power outlet, always use the dedicated AC
adapter. Failure to observe this precaution could result in fire, electric
shocks, or product malfunction.
Q Q Do not use the battery charger or AC adapter with commercially available
electronic transformers when traveling abroad. Failure to observe this pre-
caution could result in fire, electric shocks, or product malfunction.8
Caution
Q Q Contact with fluid leaking from a battery can lead to burns. If part of your
body comes in contact with a damaged battery, rinse the area with water
immediately. (Do not use soap.)
