  • A remaining charge indicator appears on the upper right area of the LCD screen.
    • The displayed remaining charge indicator may not be correct under certain circumstances.
    • It takes about 30 seconds until the correct remaining charge indicator appears.
    • If the battery pack runs out quickly even though the remaining charge indicator is high, fully charge the remote control again. The remaining charge indicator will be then displayed correctly. Note that it may not be displayed correctly in the following situations:
      • The remote control is used for a long time at high ambient temperature.
      • The remote control is left fully charged.
      • The remote control is used heavily.
  • Use the AC Adaptor (sold separately) for charging if you do not have a computer.
  • You can charge the remote control even if it is not completely discharged. Also, even if the remote control is not fully charged, you can use the partial charge capacity of the battery pack as is.
  • When the remote control is fully charged, the CHG (Charge) lamp turns off immediately.


  • When the power of the remote control is turned on, it is supplied with power but not charged.
  • Be careful not to short out the terminal section of the cradle by using materials such as metals.
  • To maintain the remote control’s function, fully charge the remote control at least once from six months to a year while storing. Also, store it in a cool, dry place.
