❏
w
When setting up your printer
Observe the following when setting up the printer:
❏
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 cords 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.
Warning:
Refer to the rating plate for the voltage and
check that the appliance voltage
corresponds to the supply voltage.
❏
Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as photocopiers or
air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
❏
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 and the 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. Doing so
may result in injury, electric shock, or fire.

Maintaining PictureMate
Checking and Cleaning the Print Head
Nozzles
If your print quality is not as good as it used to be, if
your photos are light or faint, or you are missing colors
in your prints, your print head nozzles may be clogged.
Note:
❏ Print head cleaning consumes some ink. To avoid
wasting ink, clean the print head only if print quality
declines; for example, if the printout is blurry or the
color is incorrect or missing.
2.
Load a sheet of paper. See “Loading Paper” on
page 16.
3.
Press x Menu.
4.
Select Maintenance, and then press OK.
5.
Select Nozzle Check, and then press OK.
6.
Press z to print the nozzle check pattern.
7.
Examine the nozzle check pattern you printed.
Below are sample printouts.
❏
Use the Nozzle Check function first to confirm that
the print head needs to be cleaned. This saves ink.
Okay
❏
1.
50
If a message on the LCD screen tells you that the
cartridge needs replacement or is low on ink, you
cannot clean the print head. You must first replace
the photo cartridge.
Make sure that PictureMate is turned on and no
warnings or errors are displayed on the LCD
screen.
Maintaining PictureMate PictureMate PM 260 / PM 290
Needs Cleaning
The above sample may be shown in black and white, but the actual
test prints in color (Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow).
If the nozzle check pattern is satisfactory (Okay),
Press OK.
If the nozzle check page does not print
satisfactorily (for example, if any segment of the
printed lines is missing), your print head nozzle
may be clogged. Go on to the next step.
9.
Press y Back. If a confirmation message is
displayed, press OK to clean print head.
10. When cleaning finishes, press z to print another
nozzle check pattern and check the pattern again.
Note:
If you do not see any improvement after cleaning
about two times, check the solutions beginning on
page 56. You can also turn the printer off and wait
for at least 6 hours - this allows any dried ink to
soften-and then try cleaning the print head again.

Then, check the printer labels.
Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged.
To clean the print head, see “Checking and
Cleaning the Print Head Nozzles” on page 50.
❏
PictureMate will not work properly if it is tilted or
at an angle. Place it on a flat, stable surface that
extends beyond the printer base in all directions.
❏
Make sure paper is not jammed and is loaded
correctly so it can feed into PictureMate. Make
sure the handle is not resting on the paper. See
“Preparing to Print” on page 13.

Caution:
If the voltage does not match, DO NOT PLUG
YOUR PRINTER BACK IN. Contact your
dealer.
Print and Noise Problems
PictureMate makes an unexpected noise after you
install a photo cartridge.
The first time you install the photo cartridge,
PictureMate will charge its print head for about three
and a half minutes. Wait until charging finishes before
you turn it off, or it may charge improperly and use
more ink the next time you turn it on.
PictureMate sounds as though it is printing, but
nothing prints.
❏
PictureMate may be preparing to print.
The memory card does not work correctly.
❏
Make sure you are using a compatible memory
card. See “Memory card” on page 64.
❏
Make sure only one card is inserted at a time.
PictureMate does not read from multiple cards at
once.
❏
Photos must be in JPEG or Uncompressed TIFF
format and taken with a DCF-compliant camera.
❏
PictureMate can recognize and print the first 999
photos on your memory card.

Problems With Paper Feeding
Paper does not eject fully or is wrinkled.
If it is wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp
or too thin.
Paper does not feed correctly or jams in the
printer.
❏
Make sure the top cover is open, and is not leaning
on the handle. The handle should be back of
PictureMate. Make sure the handle is not resting
on the paper. See “Preparing to Print” on page 13.
❏
If paper does not feed, remove it from paper
feeder, reload it in the center, then slide both edge
guides against the paper (but not too tightly).
