Charging the battery pack Charge lamp Lit: Charging Off: Charging finished Flashing: Charging error or charging paused temporarily because the camera is not within the proper temperature range Connect the camera to the AC Adaptor (supplied), using the micro USB cable (supplied). 2 Connect the AC Adaptor to the wall outlet (wall socket). The charge lamp lights orange, and charging starts. • Turn off the camera while charging the battery. • You can charge the battery pack even when it is partially charged. • When the charge lamp flashes and charging is not finished, remove and re-insert the battery pack. . For some countries/regions, connect the power cord (mains lead) to the AC Adaptor, and connect the AC Adaptor to the wall outlet (wall socket). Notes • If the charge lamp on the camera flashes when the AC Adaptor is connected to the wall outlet (wall socket), this indicates that charging is temporarily stopped because the temperature is outside the recommended range. When the temperature gets back within the appropriate range, the charging resumes. We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F). • The battery pack may not be effectively charged if the terminal section of the battery is dirty. In this case, wipe any dust off lightly using a soft cloth or a cotton swab to clean the terminal section of the battery. • Connect the AC Adaptor (supplied) to the nearest wall outlet (wall socket). If malfunctions occur while using the AC Adaptor, disconnect the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket) immediately to disconnect from the power source. • When charging is finished, disconnect the AC Adaptor from the wall outlet (wall socket). • Be sure to use only genuine Sony brand battery packs, micro USB cable (supplied) and AC Adaptor (supplied). I Charging time (Full charge) The charging time is approximately 230 min, using the AC Adaptor (supplied). The charge lamp lights up and then turns off immediately when the battery pack is fully charged. Notes • The above charging time applies when charging a fully depleted battery pack at a temperature of 25°C (77°F). Charging may take longer depending on conditions of use and circumstances. GB I Charging by connecting to a computer The battery pack can be charged by connecting the camera to a computer using a micro USB cable. Connect the camera to the computer with the camera turned off. To a USB jack = • If you connect the camera to a computer when the power is turned on, although the battery will not charge, the camera will be powered by the computer, which allows you to import images to the computer without worrying about the battery running out. Notes • If the camera is connected to a laptop computer that is not connected to a power source, the laptop battery level decreases. Do not charge for an extended period of time. • Do not turn on/off or restart the computer, or wake the computer to resume from sleep mode when a USB connection has been established between the computer and the camera. That may cause the camera to malfunction. Before turning on/off, or restarting the computer or waking the computer from sleep mode, disconnect the camera and the computer. • No guarantees are made for charging using a custom-built computer or a modified computer.
