Welcome!
PictureMate® Pal is your easy-to-use, personal photo
lab. Just insert a digital camera memory card and
you’re ready to print brilliant, long-lasting photos.
Because PictureMate Pal is light and portable, you can
print with it almost anywhere. Plus, your PictureMate
Pal photos are archival; generations from now your
PictureMate Pal prints will be as vibrant as they are
today.
A Quick Introduction to the Digital
Photography Process
With film cameras, the process was
simple; buy film, take pictures, leave
the film at the photo lab, and come
back later for your photos and
negatives. Since you had negatives,
you could take them back later if you
wanted reprints.
The digital process even simpler, and it gives you
complete control. Just follow the basic steps shown on
the right.
2
1. Review and Delete
After taking your photos, review them on your digital
camera’s screen. Delete the photos you don’t want.
2. Print
Insert your camera’s memory
card in PictureMate Pal, choose
your photos, and print.
3. Save
To preserve your digital photo
files (just like film negatives),
save them to your computer.
Then you can reprint them any
time.
4. Clear the Memory Card
After you save your photo files, use your camera to
delete them from your memory card (or format your
memory card) so you have space for more photos.
Special Features
If you have a Bluetooth®-enabled PDA,
cell phone, or computer, you can send
photos wirelessly to PictureMate Pal for
printing using the optional Epson®
Bluetooth Photo Print Adapter. (See
page 31.)
Printing with your PictureMate Pal becomes even
easier with these special features:
You can select all your photos for printing
by pressing
Select All, or select just
the ones you want from the photo viewer
screen. (See page 9.)
If you have a PictBridge®- or USB DIRECTPRINT™-enabled camera, you can
connect it to PictureMate Pal and control
printing right from your camera. (See
page 30.)
DPOF
If your camera supports DPOF™ (Digital
Print Order Format), you can pre-select
photos for printing while the memory
card is still in your camera. Then, when
you insert the card into PictureMate Pal,
you just select a layout and press
Print. (See page 10.)
Note: PictureMate Pal also supports the Exif Print image
enhancement standard that is built into many cameras.
Supported Photo Formats
Make sure your photos meet these requirements for
printing with PictureMate Pal (without a computer):
●
JPEG files or uncompressed TIFF files only
●
Resolutions ranging from 80 × 80 to
9200 × 9200 pixels
PictureMate Pal recognizes and prints the first 999
photos on your memory card.
3
Where to Find Information
See your Start Here sheet to unpack,
set up, and use your PictureMate Pal.
Basics (this book) explains how to
print photos directly from your
memory card. It also covers how to

The on-screen User’s Guide installed
from the CD provides comprehensive
information and instructions for using
PictureMate Pal.

Notices
Important Safety Instructions
Before using PictureMate Pal, read the following safety
instructions to make sure you use it safely and effectively:
● Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on
the printer.
● If you use the printer in places where the use of printers is
restricted, such as in airplanes or hospitals, follow all
instructions in those places.
● Do not insert objects through the slots in the printer.
● Take care not to spill liquid on the printer and the AC
adapter.
● Do not put your hand inside the printer or touch the photo
cartridge during printing.
● Do not use aerosol products that contain flammable gases
inside or around the printer. Doing so may cause fire.
● Always turn the printer off using the
On button. Do
not unplug the printer or turn off the power to the outlet
until the On light goes out.
● Before transporting the printer, make sure that the photo
cartridge is installed.
● Leave the photo cartridge installed. Removing the cartridge
can dehydrate the print head and may prevent the printer
from printing or cause ink to leak out.
50
● Do not remove the memory card or turn off the printer
while the computer and the memory card are
communicating (when the memory card light is flashing).
● The methods for using memory cards vary according to
card type. Be sure to refer to the documentation packaged
with your memory card for details.
● Use only memory cards compatible with the printer (see
page 6).
● Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends
beyond the base of the printer in all directions. The printer
will not operate properly if it is tilted at an angle. If you
place the printer by the wall, leave more than 4 inches
(10 cm) between the back of the printer and the wall.
● When storing or transporting the printer, do not tilt it, stand
it on its side, or turn it upside down. Otherwise, ink may
leak from the cartridge.
● Leave enough space in front of the printer for the paper to
be fully ejected.
● Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and
humidity. Also, keep the printer and the AC adapter away
from direct sunlight, strong light, water, or heat sources.
Caution: Keep PictureMate Pal out of the sun and
don’t leave it in your car or other location where it can
get too hot or too cold. Otherwise PictureMate Pal
may be damaged or ink may leak.
● Avoid places subject to dust, shock, or vibration.
● Leave enough room around the printer to allow for
sufficient ventilation.
● Place the AC adapter near a wall outlet where the plug can
be easily unplugged.
● Do not place or store the printer or the AC adapter
outdoors.
● Do not block or cover the vents and openings in the
printer.
● Power supply cords should be placed to avoid abrasions,
cuts, fraying, crimping, and kinking. Do not place objects on
top of power-supply cords and do not allow the AC adapter
or power-supply cords to be stepped on or run over. Be
particularly careful to keep all power-supply cords straight
at the ends and the points where they enter and leave the
AC adapter.
● Use only the power-supply cord that comes with this
product. Use of another cord may result in fire or electrical
shock, or injury.
● The AC adapter model A381H is designed for use with the
printer with which it was included. Do not attempt to use it
with other electronic devices unless specified.
● Use only the type of power source indicated on the AC
adapter’s label, and always supply power directly from a
standard domestic electrical outlet with the AC power cord
that meets the relevant local safety standards.
● Avoid using electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or
automatic timers.
● Keep the entire computer system away from potential
sources of electromagnetic interference, such as
loudspeakers or the base units of cordless telephones.
● Do not use a damaged or frayed power cord or AC adapter.
● If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure
that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the
extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating.
Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all devices
plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall
outlet’s ampere rating.
● Never disassemble, modify, or attempt to repair the AC
adapter, power cord, printer, and options by yourself
except as specifically explained in the printer’s guides.
● Unplug the printer and the AC adapter and refer servicing
to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
The power cord or plug is damaged; liquid has entered the
printer or the AC adapter; the printer or the AC adapter has
been dropped or the casing damaged; the printer or the AC
adapter does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct
change in performance. (Do not adjust controls that are
not covered by the operating instructions.)
● Do not use with wet hands.
● Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as photocopiers or
air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
51
Warning: The cords included with this product contain chemicals,
including lead, known to the State of California to cause birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after
handling. (provided in accordance with Proposition 65 in Cal.
Health & Safety Code §25249.5 et seq)
Photo Cartridge Safety Instructions
● Keep photo cartridges out of the reach of children and do
not drink the ink.
● Do not shake the photo cartridge after removing it from the
bag; this can cause leakage.
● Be careful when you handle used photo cartridges, as
there may be some ink remaining around the ink supply
ports. If ink gets onto your skin, wash the area thoroughly
with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems
continue after a thorough flushing, see a doctor
immediately.
● Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; this can
cause leakage.
● Do not dismantle photo cartridges or try to refill them. This
could damage the print head.
● Install the photo cartridge immediately after you remove it
from its package. If you leave a cartridge unpacked for a
long time before using it, normal printing may not be
possible.
52
● Do not use a photo cartridge beyond the date printed on
the cartridge carton; otherwise, it may result in reduced
print quality. For best results, use up the photo cartridge
within six months of installing it.
● After bringing a photo cartridge inside from a cold storage
site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for at least
three hours before using it.
● Store photo cartridges in a cool, dark place.
● Store each photo cartridge so that the bottom of its
packaging faces down.
● Do not touch the green IC chip on the bottom of the
cartridge. Doing so may prevent normal operation and
printing.
● The IC chip on the photo cartridge retains a variety of
cartridge-related information, such as the amount of ink
remaining, so that the cartridge may be removed and
reinstalled freely. However, each time the cartridge is
inserted, some ink is consumed because the printer
automatically performs a reliability check.
● If you remove the photo cartridge for later use, protect the
ink supply ports from dirt and dust and store it in the same
environment as the printer. A valve in the ink supply ports
makes covers or plugs unnecessary, but the ink may stain
items that come into contact with this area of the cartridge.
Do not touch the ink supply ports or the surrounding area.
Photo Viewer Screen Safety Instructions
● The screen contains a few small bright or dark spots. These
are normal and do not mean that the screen is damaged in
any way.
● Only use a dry, soft cloth to clean the screen. Do not use
liquid or chemical cleansers.
● If the screen is damaged, contact your dealer. If the liquid
crystal solution gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly
with soap and water. If the liquid crystal solution gets into
your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort
or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a
doctor immediately.
● Please consult your state and local regulations regarding
disposal or recycling. Do not put in the trash.
Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to
the original retail purchaser that the Epson printer covered by
this limited warranty statement, if purchased and operated
only in the United States or Canada, will be free from defects
in workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year
from the date of original purchase. For warranty service, you
must provide proof of the date of original purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your
Epson printer prove defective during the warranty period,
please call the Epson ConnectionSM at (562) 276-7282 (U.S.)
or (905) 709-2567 (Canada) for warranty repair instructions
and return authorization. An Epson service technician will
provide telephone diagnostic service to determine whether
the printer requires service. If service is needed, Epson will, at
its option, exchange or repair the printer without charge for
parts or labor. If Epson authorizes an exchange for the
defective unit, Epson will ship a replacement printer to you,
freight prepaid, so long as you use an address in Canada or
the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. Possessions).
Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. You
are responsible for securely packaging the defective unit and
returning it to Epson within five (5) working days of receipt of
the replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card
number to secure the cost of the replacement printer in the
event that you fail to return the defective one. If your printer
is being repaired, Epson will direct you to send your printer to
Epson or its authorized service center, where the printer will
be fixed and sent back to you. You are responsible for
packing the printer and for all costs to and from the Epson
authorized service center. When warranty service involves the
exchange of the printer or a part, the item replaced becomes
Epson property. The replacement printer or part may be new
or refurbished to the Epson standard of quality, and, at
Epson’s option, may be another model of like kind and
quality. Epson’s liability for replacement of the covered printer
will not exceed the original retail selling price of the covered
printer. Exchange products and parts assume the remaining
warranty period of your original product covered by this
limited warranty.
53
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty does not
apply to refurbished or reconditioned products. This warranty
covers only normal use in the United States and Canada.
Using this product for continuous production or similar high
duty purposes is not considered normal use; damage,
maintenance or service from such use will not be covered
under this warranty. This warranty is not transferable. This
warranty does not cover any color change or fading of prints
or reimbursement of materials or services required for
reprinting. This warranty does not cover damage to the Epson
product caused by parts or supplies not manufactured,
distributed or certified by Epson. This warranty does not cover
ribbons, ink cartridges or third party parts, components, or
peripheral devices added to the Epson product after its
shipment from Epson, e.g., dealer or user-added boards or
components. Epson is not responsible for warranty service
should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial
number be removed or should the product fail to be properly
maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse,
abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping,
damage caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and lightning,
improper electrical current, software problems, interaction
with non-Epson products, or service other than by an Epson
Authorized Servicer. If a claimed defect cannot be identified
or reproduced, you will be held responsible for the costs
incurred.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE
EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED
54
WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND
IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY
PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE. UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY
STATEMENT OR REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER
PERSON OR FIRM ARE VOID. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS
WRITTEN WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR
ITS AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS,
INCONVENIENCE, OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING
FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT,
WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY
OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and
conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an
implied warranty lasts, and some jurisdictions do not allow
the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not
apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and
you may have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to
jurisdiction.

How Many Photos Will I Get From a PictureMate
Print Pack?
Epson has packaged the PictureMate Photo Cartridge with a
quantity of 4 × 6 PictureMate Photo Paper, so that purchasing
supplies for PictureMate is convenient and affordable. The
number of sheets of photo paper in your PictureMate Print
Pack is stated on the Print Pack’s box. The photo ink cartridge
in the Print Pack contains enough ink to allow borderless,
color printing of about the stated number of sheets.
Our estimate of the number of photos you can print with a
PictureMate Print Pack is based on test printing with a range
of 20 different color photos. Actual yields will vary based on
images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use
and temperature. For example, printing many copies of the
same photo, or printing many black and white or sepia
photos, may result in fewer photos per PictureMate Photo
Cartridge. Also, the PictureMate Photo Cartridge once
installed should be replaced with a new one within 6
months. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in
the cartridge after the “Replace Print Pack” indicator comes
on.
You may be able to print more photos with a PictureMate
Photo Cartridge than the number of sheets of photo paper in
your PictureMate Print Pack. In this case the cartridge monitor
indicates the cartridge can still be used. You can continue
printing with paper from another PictureMate Print Pack or
Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper in the 4 × 6 borderless
size which is available from many resellers or
Epsonstore.com. There are other photo papers available but
most are not formulated to be fully compatible with the
PictureMate Photo Cartridge. Using other papers may result
in poor color reproduction, print quality problems or more
fading.
Both a PictureMate Photo Cartridge and some PictureMate
Photo Paper were included in the box with your PictureMate
printer. The included cartridge contains enough ink to allow
borderless, color printing of about the number of included
paper sheets. The other comments above also apply to the
cartridge and paper included in the printer box.
PictureMate Print Pack Satisfaction Guarantee
If you are dissatisfied because you receive fewer prints than
the number of sheets of paper stated on your PictureMate
Print Pack, you can return the remaining sheets of paper with
the dated sales receipt and UPC code from the PictureMate
Print Pack packaging within one year of purchase and Epson
will give you a pro-rated refund for the number of sheets
returned, plus a maximum of $1.10 for postage. The amount
of the refund depends on the number of sheets stated on
your Print Pack and the Print Pack’s suggested retail price. For
example, if you purchased a 150-sheet Print Pack of glossy
photo paper with a suggested retail price of $39.99, Epson
will refund 27 cents per sheet returned ($39.99 divided by
150 sheets equals 27cents per sheet.). This Satisfaction
Guarantee is a prorated refund that covers only end-user
claims in the U.S. and Canada. It does not cover use of any
non-Epson ink or paper, commercial use of the printer, or
paper consumed by proofs or printing errors.
55
This Satisfaction Guarantee also applies to the PictureMate
Photo Cartridge and PictureMate Photo Paper which were
included in the box with your PictureMate printer, if you are
dissatisfied because you receive fewer prints with the
cartridge than the number of sheets included. The per-sheet
refund in that case is 27 cents.
If you are making a claim based on the number of prints
you were able to make with the initial cartridge and
paper which were included in the box with your
PictureMate printer, please submit:
a) Fully completed PictureMate Print Pack Satisfaction
Guarantee Form
b) Copy of Original UPC code of PictureMate printer
