Frequently Asked Questions & Troubleshooting
What is the optimal resolution of photos to be played back on Photo Book?
ƒ
The recommended resolution for the images is the actual screen
resolution of Photo Book, which is 800x600 (SVGA) resolution. Please
note that images of higher resolution will be automatically resized for
display according to the screen resolution.
ƒ
By resizing image that have a higher resolution than the screen resolution,
you will create smaller file sizes and will be able to store more photos in on
the Internal Memory.
ƒ
Alternatively, the zoom feature will provide sharper looking zoomed
images on higher resolution photos.
Can I rotate photos on Photo Book? How does Photo Book handle photos
shot in portrait?
ƒ
Photos on Photo Book will be displayed according to the photo orientation
information available in the EXIF data captured with the photo. Most digital
SLR cameras will have this photo orientation information. Photos taken in
portrait orientation will be automatically rotated when it is displayed on
Image Moments. If the digital camera does not capture this information
with the photo, the photo will be displayed in its original orientation.
ƒ
You can also manually rotate the photo on the screen. When you view a
photo full screen in manual mode, you can press OK to rotate the picture
by 90 degrees. Note that the rotated image will return to its original
orientation the next time you view it. To retain the orientation settings for
the pictures, you can rotate the images in your computer and copy the
edited images onto the Photo Book.
ƒ
Note that the rotate function will not work in Photo Book Slideshow or
Full-Screen Slideshow mode.
What is the aspect ratio of the screen? If I have photos with 3:2 or 16:9
aspect ratios, how will they be displayed on the device?
ƒ
The aspect ratio on Photo Book is 4:3. If you have photos in a 3:2 or 16:9
aspect ratio, the photo will be displayed in a letterbox with black bars on
top and bottom of the screen in the default view mode. There will be no
rescaling or distortion of your photos.
The slide interval is set to 1-Second, but it seems to take longer than 1
second to change the picture. Why is it like this?
ƒ
Photos of larger file sizes will take more time to load. Selecting 1-Second
does not mean that the next photo will appear in exactly 1 second. It
means that the next photo will start the loading process after 1 second.
Large files may take longer than 1 second to display.

will play in the background in random order.
I have both photos and video files in a photo album, but the videos files are
skipped in the slideshow.
ƒ

Digital Foci LCD Display Pixel Policy
This section defines the different types of pixel anomalies seen on LCD displays, explains why
such anomalies occur, and states standard pixel policy for warranty service. In order to qualify
for repair or replacement under warranty, the number of pixel anomalies on your LCD panel
must exceed these industry standards.
Why Pixel Anomalies Occur
Active-matrix LCD technology uses rows and columns of addressable locations (pixels) that
render text and images on the display. Each pixel location has three subpixels in the primary
colors of red, green, and blue that allow the image to be rendered in full color. Each subpixel
has a corresponding transistor responsible for turning the subpixel on and off.
The standard of production techniques for LCD manufacturing today cannot guarantee an
absolutely fault-free display. During the production process, it is not uncommon for one or more
pixels to be fixed in an unchanging state. The visible result is a pixel or subpixel with a fixed
color that does not change or one that is dark and does not light at all. In most situations, these
fixed pixels are unnoticeable and do not detract from the display quality or usability.
Types of Pixel Anomalies
There are two types of pixel anomalies: bright pixel anomaly and dark pixel anomaly.
Bright pixel anomaly: A bright pixel anomaly is defined as a pixel or subpixel that is always lit
or ‘on’. The bright pixel anomaly will constantly show as red, green, blue, or white.
Dark pixel anomaly: A dark pixel anomaly is defined as a pixel or subpixel that is always dark
or ‘off’. The dark pixel anomaly will always be dark and will not show any color.
Standard Pixel Policy
Digital Foci warrants that any LCD display with an unacceptable number of pixel anomalies
will be repaired or replaced. To qualify for repair or replacement under warranty, the number of
pixel anomalies on the TFT LCD panel must exceed these industry standards.

Regulatory Compliance
FCC Part 15 Compliance
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions:
1.
This device may not cause harmful interference.
2.
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operations.
The device has been tested and verified to be within the energy emission limits for Class B digital
devices as defined in Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential situation. This device generates, uses, and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Installed correctly, it probably will not
interfere with your radio or TV. However, we do not guarantee the absence of interference.
If you modify the device in any way, without approval from Digital Foci, Inc., your device may violate
FCC regulations. Violation of FCC regulations may cause the FCC to void your rights to use the
modified device.
If you suspect this device is causing interference, power off and on the device while your radio or TV
is showing interference. If the interference disappears when you turn the device off and reappears
when you turn the device on, something in the device is causing interference.
To reduce interference, try these suggestions:
•
Change the direction of the radio or TV antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the device and radio or TV.
•
Connect the device to a different outlet on a different circuit.
If these suggestions don’t help, consult your computer dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician.
