46 EN Appendix Battery and charger This camera uses one Olympus lithium ion battery (LI-42B/LI-40B). No other type of batteries can be used. CAUTION There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with the incorrect battery type. Dispose of the used battery following the instructions (p. 54). Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used. During the conditions described below, power is consumed continuously and the battery becomes exhausted quickly. The zoom is used repeatedly. The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto focus. A picture is displayed on the monitor for an extended period of time. The camera is connected to a computer or printer. Using an exhausted battery may cause the camera to turn off without displaying the battery level warning. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged at the time of purchase. Charge the battery fully with the LI-41C/LI-40C charger before use. The provided rechargeable battery usually takes approximately 2 hours to charge (varies with usage). The supplied LI-41C battery charger is used only for LI-42B/LI-40B battery. Do not charge other type of battery with the supplied battery charger. It might cause explosion, leaking, overheating or fire. For plug-in type battery charger: This power unit is intended to be correctly orientated in a vertical or floor mount position. • • • • • • • • • • • • Camera care Exterior Wipe gently with a soft cloth. If the camera is very dirty, soak the cloth in mild soapy water and wring well. Wipe the camera with the damp cloth and then dry it with a dry cloth. If you have used the camera at the beach, use a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung well. If any dirt, dust, sand, or other foreign material adheres to the periphery of the lens cover after use, or the lens cover does not move smoothly, wash the camera using the method described on P. 50. Monitor Wipe gently with a soft cloth. Lens Blow dust off the lens with a commercial blower, then wipe gently with a lens cleaner. Battery/Charger Wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use strong solvents such as benzene or alcohol, or chemically treated cloth. Mold may form on the lens surface if the lens is left dirty. Storage When storing the camera for extended periods, remove the battery, AC adapter and card, and keep in a cool, dry place that is well ventilated. Periodically insert the battery and test the camera functions. Avoid leaving the camera in places where chemical products are handled since this may result in corrosion. • • • • • • • book_oima_d4388_en.indb 46 book_oima_d4388_en.indb 46 2008/11/25 14:45:19 2008/11/25 14:45:19

47 EN Using an AC adapter An AC adapter is useful for time-consuming tasks such as image downloads to a computer or when running a slideshow for a long period of time. To use an AC adapter for this camera, the multi-adapter (CB-MA1/accessory) is required. Do not use any other AC adapter with this camera. Using your charger and AC adapter abroad The charger and AC adapter can be used in most home electrical sources within the range of 100 V to 240 V AC (50/60Hz) around the world. However, depending on the country or area you are in, the AC wall outlet may be shaped differently and the charger and AC adapter may require a plug adapter to match the wall outlet. For details, ask at your local electrical shop or travel agent. Do not use travel voltage converters as they could damage your charger and AC adapter. Using an xD-Picture Card A card (and internal memory) also corresponds to the film that records images in a film camera. Otherwise, the recorded images (data) can be erased, and retouching is also available with the use of a computer. Cards can be removed from the camera and exchanged, but this is not possible with the internal memory. Use of larger capacity cards enables you to take more pictures.

If any water drops are found, be sure to wipe them off before using the camera. Notes after use Any foreign material may be adhered to the periphery of the lens cover, after you use the camera in an environment containing foreign material including dirt, dust or sand, or when the lens cover won’t move smoothly. If you continue to use the camera in such a condition, the lens may be damaged or the lens cover may become stuck, causing a failure. To avoid such a failure, wash the camera using the following method. 1 Insert the battery and close the battery/ card compartment cover and connector cover firmly so that each lock makes the clicking sound. 2 Fill a bucket with fresh water, immerse the camera in the bucket with the lens surface downward and shake the camera thoroughly. 3 Press the n button several times in the water and close/open the lens cover repeatedly. 4 Furthermore, shake the camera further with the cover opened. • • • • Follow Steps 1 to 4, then check if the lens cover moves smoothly. If the lens cover does not move smoothly, rinse the lens face by placing it directly under a strong stream of tap water and pressing the n button repeatedly. Storage and Maintenance Do not leave the camera in an environment at high temperature (40°C (104°F) or more) or at low temperature (0°C (32°F) or less). Failure to do so may break down water resistance. Do not use chemicals for cleaning, rust prevention, anti-fogging, repairing, etc. Failure to do so may break down water resistance. Do not leave the camera in water for a long time. Failure to do so will cause damage to the camera’s appearance and/or deteriorate water resistance. In order to preserve the water resistant feature, as with any underwater housing, it is recommended that the waterproof packing (and seals) are replaced annually. For the Olympus distributors or service stations where the waterproof packing can be replaced, visit Olympus website for your local area. • • • • book_oima_d4388_en.indb 50 book_oima_d4388_en.indb 50 2008/11/25 14:45:25 2008/11/25 14:45:25
