• Do not press against the LCD screen. The screen
may be discolored and that may cause a
malfunction.
• Exposing the LCD screen to direct sunlight for long
periods may cause malfunctions.
• The LCD screen is manufactured using extremely
high-precision technology, so over 99.99% of the
pixels are operational for effective use. However,
there may be some tiny black points and/or bright
points (white, red, blue or green in color) that
constantly appear on the LCD screen. These points
are normal in the manufacturing process and do not
affect the viewing in any way.
• Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a cold
location. This is not a malfunction.

• Using a battery other than the specified one may
result in the battery rupturing.
• Dispose of used batteries as specified by the local
authorities.
• Do not leave the remote control in a very hot and
humid place.
• Take care that no foreign objects get inside the
remote control when you, for example, replace the
battery.
• Incorrect use of the battery may cause leaking and
corrosion.
Setting the stand
1
Hold the photo frame tightly and
insert the stand straight into the
screw hole on the rear panel.
– Do not recharge the battery.
– Incorrectly inserting, shorting, dismantling, or
heating the battery, or throwing it into a fire
may cause the battery to rupture or leak.
About descriptions in this
manual
2
Screw the stand into the screw hole
firmly until the stand stops turning.
The operations described in this manual are
based on remote control operation. When an
operation is performed differently, for example,
with the remote control and the buttons on the
photo frame, it will be explained in a tip.
Setting to portrait or landscape
orientation
You can set the photo frame to portrait or
landscape orientation by rotating it without
moving the stand.
Continued
15 GB
Basic operations
– When the remote control will not be used for a
long period of time, remove the battery from the
remote control to prevent leaking and corrosion.
When the photo frame is placed in the portrait
orientation, the image is also automatically
rotated to its proper orientation.
DPF-D72 only: The directions indicated on the
direction button on the rear panel depend on the
orientation of the photo frame.
To display the photo
frame on the wall
You can hang the photo frame on the wall
using the following procedure.
1
Prepare screws (not supplied)
suitable for the screw holes on the
rear panel.
4mm (3/16 inch)
More than 25mm (1 inch)
4.2mm
(3/16 inch)
Notes
• Check whether the stand is stable. If the stand is not
set properly, the photo frame may fall over.
• DPF-A72/D72 only: When the photo frame is
placed in the portrait orientation, the Sony logo
doesn't light up.
• The photo frame does not detect and rotate the
orientation of images when [Auto display
orientation] of [General Settings] on the
(Settings) tab is set to [OFF].
• A magnet is contained in the storage portion of the
stand. Do not keep anything that is easily affected
by magnetism, such as a cash card or credit card,
near the photo frame.
If you place the photo frame near a cathode-ray tube
television, the colors of the television screen may be
affected.

provided on the rear when you hang the photo frame
on the wall.
To exchange a panel
(DPF-E72 only)
You can exchange the original panel with an
exchangeable panel supplied.
1
Since a magnet is contained in the
storage portion, you can keep the
stand attached to the portion.
• Connect the DC cable of the AC adaptor to the
photo frame and hang the photo frame on the wall.
Then connect the AC adaptor to the wall outlet.
• We take no responsibility for any accidents or
damage caused by defects of attachment, misuse, or

• If handled roughly, the AC plug may become
detached from the AC adaptor main unit and remain
in the wall outlet. If this occurs, grasp the AC plug
with dry hands as illustrated above and remove it
from the wall outlet. Do not use a tool. Be careful
not to touch the metal terminals at the rear of the
AC plug.
• Check to see if there is no trouble with the AC

Basic operations
• Do not short the plug of the AC adaptor with a
metal object. Doing so may cause a malfunction.
• Do not use the AC Adaptor placed in a narrow
space, such as between a wall and furniture.
• Insert the plug of the AC adaptor firmly, if the
connection is loose, the photo frame may turn off
when it is moved.
• After use, remove the AC adaptor from the
DC IN 5 V jack of the photo frame, and remove the
AC adaptor from the outlet.
• Even if your photo frame is turned off, power will
still be supplied if the AC adaptor remains
connected and plugged into the wall outlet.
• Do not turn the photo frame off or disconnect the
AC adaptor from the photo frame before the
standby indicator turns red. Doing so may damage
the photo frame.

slot automatically detects the card type. The slot is
also both a “Memory Stick” standard and Duo size
compatible slot, so you do not need a “Memory
Stick” adaptor.

or CompactFlash card/Microdrive (DPF-D72 only)
slots simultaneously. If multiple memory cards are
inserted, the photo frame will not work properly.

while it is connected to the wall outlet via the
AC adaptor.
Be sure to use the AC adaptor supplied with
the photo frame. Do not use other AC
adaptors, as this may cause a malfunction.
Do not use the supplied AC adaptor for other
devices.
Do not use an electrical transformer (travel
converter), as this may cause overheating or
a malfunction.
In case the cord of the AC adaptor is
damaged, do not use it any longer, as this
may be dangerous.
On moisture condensation
If the photo frame is brought directly from a
cold location to a warm location or placed in an
extremely warm or humid room, moisture may
condense inside the unit. In such cases the
photo frame will probably not work properly
and may even develop a fault if you persist in
using it. If moisture condensation occurs,
unplug the AC power cord of the photo frame
and do not use the photo frame for at least one
hour.
On transport

On the AC adaptor
• Even if your photo frame is turned off, AC
power (house current) is still supplied to it
On cleaning
Clean the photo frame with a soft dry cloth, or a
soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild
detergent solution. Do not use any type of
solvent, such as alcohol or benzine, which may
damage the finish.

Additional information
• Do not insert more than one “Memory Stick”
at the same time, or this may cause trouble
with the photo frame.
• If you use a “Memory Stick Micro” with the
photo frame, the “Memory Stick Micro”
needs to be inserted into an “M2” adaptor.
• If you insert a “Memory Stick Micro” into
the photo frame without an “M2” adaptor,
you may be unable to remove the “Memory
Stick Micro”.
• If you insert a “Memory Stick Micro” into an
“M2”adaptor, and insert the “M2” adaptor
into a “Memory Stick Duo” adaptor, the
photo frame may not operate properly.
• When you initialize a “Memory Stick”, use
the initialization function of your digital
camera. If you initialize it with your
computer, images may not be displayed
properly.
• When you perform initialization, all the
protected images are erased. To avoid
erasing important data by accident, make
sure to check the contents of the “Memory
Stick” before initialization.
• You cannot record, edit, or delete data if you
slide the write-protect switch to LOCK.
• Do not attach any other material than the
supplied label on the labelling position.
When you attach the supplied label, be sure
to attach it to the labelling position. Be
careful that the label does not stick out.
SD memory card
CompactFlash card (DPF-D72
only)

*7
Use a CompactFlash card with a power
specification of 3.3V or 3.3V/5V. You cannot use
a type for 3V or 5V only. Do not insert other types
of CompactFlash card into the photo frame’s
insertion slot. The photo frame may be damaged.
The photo frame has been demonstrated as
operable with a CompactFlash with a capacity of
32 GB or smaller.
When using a commercially available
CompactFlash card adaptor, refer to the operating
instructions of the adaptor you use for how to
install the card and adaptor. When using a
CompactFlash card adaptor, a write-protected card
may not work properly.
Notes on using a memory card
• When using a card, make sure to check the
correct insertion direction of the card and the
correct insertion slot.
• When inserting the memory card, it will only
insert part of the way, so do not try to force
it, as this could damage the memory card
and/or photo frame.
• Do not remove a card or turn off the photo
frame while the photo frame is reading or
writing data, or the access indicator is
flashing. Otherwise, data may be rendered
unreadable or be erased.
• We recommend that you save a backup of
important data.
