Installing and Removing the Desktop Stand
The desktop stand is removable for convenience in wall mount environments. When
installed, the stand can be adjusted whether the frame is in landscape or portrait
orientation. When in either landscape or portrait orientation the stand has additional
fine adjustments so that the tilt angle of the display face can be adjusted to a wide
variety of look and appeal. Use the following procedure for best results:
Installing the Stand
1.
2.
Make sure to turn the power off and disconnect the
power plug from the outlet before moving the
product. Make sure to disconnect the connection
cables from other devices as well. Moving the
product without disconnecting the power cord may
damage it while moving, and may cause electric
shock or fire.

5.
Lay the frame with the display face down on a soft cloth to avoid scratches.
Insert the stand so that the arrow point of the stand matches to the arrow point of
the stand receptacle.
Turn the stand counterclockwise until the first click. The stand is now locked into
the receptacle with the smallest tilt angle.
When you continue to turn the stand counterclockwise further, additional clicks will
be felt. Each click increases the tilt angle slight for about 2 clicks yielding maximum
tilt angle.
Turning counterclockwise another click will become the maximum tilt angle when
the frame is in portrait orientation. With each additional counterclockwise click, the
tilt angle will decrease accordingly until the hard stop is felt.

Auto Play
By default, the frame will automatically play a slideshow when power is applied. External
media will be checked first starting with the card media slot, followed by the USB port. If
there is no media or content externally, the frame will play from internal memory. If there is
no content internally, the Main Menu will be displayed. A complimentary slideshow is
included so you may instantly see it operate while you become familiar with the operation
and controls. If a slideshow is playing from internal memory, and external media is inserted,
the frame will halt the current slideshow and automatically begin to play the new inserted
media. When the media card is removed, the frame will halt and play from internal memory.

Connecting to the USB Ports

The frame has a mini-USB port for connection to a PC. When connected to the PC, you can
drag-n-drop content into the internal memory of the frame. When connected to the PC, the
frame will halt, and the display will present a “PC connection established. Remote is
temporarily inoperative” message. The PC recognizes the frame as a USB storage class
device. The internal memory and the media slot are shown as separate drive letters. The
frame also has a USB port for connecting other USB devices such as
thumbdrives/flashdrives, card readers, and cameras. When connecting a USB device the
frame will display the device as USB. When connected, you can play directly from the
device by selecting USB option from the Media Menu

Remote Control
The remote control is a convenient way to access external devices and internal
memory or manage the way the content is played. The layout of the user interface is
designed for maximum ease of use. Because the menu functions all operate in a
similar manner, navigation is quick and easy to learn.

Rechargeable Battery
Certain models are equipped with an internal rechargeable battery. This allows full
operation of the frame when disconnected from main power. This option has high value
when mobility and portability are desired, such as sharing with groups, on vacation, or
quickly connect to a USB port to download more content. The battery charges when power
is applied. As with all rechargeable devices, occasionally the frame should be operated only
from the battery until the battery is fully discharged. This maintains the best performance of
the battery over time.

29.
Changing the Bezel
Certain configurations allow for changing the decorative bezel that surrounds the
display. The decorative bezel is designed with embedded magnetic discs that match up
to magnetic discs also embedded on the bezel channel of the unit. Changing the bezel
is very easy and quick to do, needing only a common paperclip or the supplied Bezel
Removal Tool to free the bezel from the unit. See below.
Changing the Frame
MemoryFrametm has the ability to mount a standard open frame so that you can
change the look of the frame to suit your decor. Standard 8”x10” open frames mount on
8.4” MemoryFrame and 9”x12” open frames mount on 10.4” MemoryFrame. Although
there are a wide variety of 8x10 and 9x12 frames, typical open frames have these
common cavity dimensions. The difference in cavities is typically the depth and whether
to accommodate matte, glass, and backing. The way the backing is attached to the
cavity determines how easy the frame can be used with the MemoryFrame. Refer to
the Frame Mounting Guide on our website www.memoryframe.com.

With the back of the frame facing you, use the Bezel Removal Tool or a
paperclip, slide it flat side through one of the slots in the frame. See above
pictorial.
Push the tool/paperclip through until the bezel is released from the unit and
remove the bezel.

3.
31.
Be sure that there is no bezel currently installed on the display.
Note that the IR remote control iris is located at the top of the bezel and
matches to the IR sensor at the top center of the frame. Care should be taken
to assure this iris is located at the top of the frame when inserting another
bezel. Otherwise the Remote Control operation may become unstable.
With the unit laying flat on a surface with the display facing up at you, place
the bezel on top of the front of the unit with the shiny side facing out, the
magnetic discs match up together, and the iris is in the upper center of the
frame.
Changing the Remote Control Battery
The Remote Control operates from battery power. The battery for the Remote Control
is mounted into a cavity that can be opened for convenient battery replacement. The
Remote Control uses a conventional CR2025 3VDC battery that is easily changed
using the guideline below:
1. Using your finger, press the release arm and slide the battery tray out
simultaneously. Note the orientation of the battery and holder.
2. Remove and replace with a new battery into the battery tray with the proper
orientation.
3. Slide the battery tray closed until the release level locks. The Remote Control
is now ready for operation.

32. Cleaning the LCD Screen
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
The digital frame should be treated with care. The screen is made of glass
and can be scratched or broken.
To clean fingerprints or dust from the LCD screen, use a soft, non-abrasive
cloth such as a camera lens cloth to clean the LCD screen.
When using a commercial LCD cleaning kit, apply the cleaning liquid to the
cloth, not directly to the LCD screen.
Do not use liquids that contain alcohol or other caustic cleaning solution.
For the outer surface of the digital frame (excluding the screen) use a soft
cloth dampened with water.
33. Tips, Techniques, Troubleshooting
Q. The unit does not turn On.
A Make sure the unit is plugged into a working AC outlet. Make sure the DC
power connector is securely connected.
Q. The unit does not operate from the battery when first tried.
A. To maintain the optimal life of the battery, it is discharged when shipped.
When connected to the AC adapter, the battery will charge. When first used,
the battery should charge for at least 24 hours. During the normal course of
use, it is always recommended that occasionally the unit operate on battery
only until fully discharged. In this manner, when recharged again, maximum
and life can be expected.
Q. Sometimes I see folders, but the filmstrip view is blank.
A. When you are in Photo mode, all folders will be shown, even if they do not
have images inside. When you navigate to a folder that does not have images,
the filmstrip will be blank, indicating that there are no images in this folder.
When you highlight a folder that has images, the filmstrip view will activate
presenting 5 images at a time, scrolling right to left.
Q. If I need Tech Support, how do I contact.
A. You can reach Technical Support by email at techsupport@dsicentral.com
Q. I don’t get as many images stored in memory as expected. What can be the
cause?
A. The number of images that can be stored depends on several factors. These
include:
• The megapixel rating of the camera
• The resolution setting of the camera when pictures are being taken
• The setting of Copy Picture Type in the Settings Menu
All of these factors together determine the number of images that can be
stored in the memory of the frame. By setting the camera to the lowest
resolution, the original images will be smaller, and when the Picture Copy
Type is also set to Resize when copying, additional compression will be
applied. This will maximize the number of stored images for the camera used.
