 Danger

  • Do not attempt to disassemble, repair, or alter the camera yourself. The high-voltage circuitry in the camera poses significant electrical hazard.

 Warning

  • Turn off the power immediately if any metallic object, water, liquid, or other foreign object gets into the camera. And contact the nearest service center. Do not continue using the camera if it has a failure or malfunction.

  • Keep the camera out of the reach of children. Young children cannot understand the information in Safety Precautions and Cautions on Use, which may cause an accident.

  • Do not touch the internal components of the camera if they become exposed as a result of being dropped or damaged. The high-voltage circuitry in the camera poses significant electrical hazard. Contact your nearest dealer or service center if it is damaged.

  • Do not use the camera near flammable gases, gasoline, benzine, thinner, or similar substances to avoid the risk of explosion, fire, or burns.
  • Do not use the camera in locations such as airplanes where usage is restricted or prohibited as this may lead to disasters or accidents.

  • Stop charging if the charging does not complete within the specified charging time.
  • Never put the battery in a microwave oven or high-pressure container.

 Caution

  • Contact with fluid leaking from the battery in the camera can lead to burns. If you touch the fluid, rinse the area with water immediately. (Do not use soap.) And contact the nearest service center. Do not continue using the camera if it has a failure or malfunction.

  • Do not get the camera wet. In addition, do not operate it with wet hands. Both pose the risk of electric shock.
  • Do not use the camera wrapped in a cloth, etc. Doing so may cause a fire.
  • Do not allow the metal of the terminals to short circuit. Doing so may cause a fire.
