Using a Household Power Source

Connect to a household power source to use the camcorder without worrying about the battery power. You can keep the battery pack attached; the battery power will not be consumed.

  1. Turn the POWER switch to OFF.

  2. Connect the power cord to the power adapter.

  3. Plug the power cord into a power outlet.

  4. Connect the power adapter to the camcorder' s DC IN terminal.
  • Turn off the camcorder before connecting or disconnecting the power adapter.
  • If the adapter is used close to a TV, it may cause picture interference. Move the adapter away from the TV or the antenna cable.
  • Do not connect any products that are not expressly recommended to the camcorder' s DC IN terminal or to the power adapter.
  • You may hear some noise from the power adapter during use. This is not a malfunction.
  • Do not disconnect and reconnect the power cord while charging a battery pack. The battery pack may not be charged correctly even if the CHARGE indicator glows steady. The battery pack may also not be charged correctly when a power outage occurs during charging. Remove the battery pack and attach it back to the camcorder.
  • When the power adapter or battery pack is defective, the CHARGE indicator flashes rapidly (at about 2 flashes/second) and charging stops.
  • The CHARGE indicator informs you about the charge status.
    • 0-50%: Flashes once every second
    • More than 50%: Flashes twice every second
    • 100%: Glows steadily
