Using Your Printer
Printing Without a Computer
This section describes how to print directly from a memory card, USB storage device, or PictBridgeenabled or other compatible camera.
Printing Tips
•
Before you print, make sure the power is connected, and the photo cartridge and photo paper
are loaded. For help, see your Setting Up Your Printer poster.
•
Printing starts when you press Print. The photo paper cycles 4 times during the printing
process. The first 3 passes apply layers of yellow, magenta, and cyan color. The fourth pass
applies the Dell Clear Life Coating that protects and preserves the photo.
NOTE: If you remove the card or disconnect the camera during printing, then printing will stop when the
current photo is printed.
•
For advanced print options (color and auto brightness, layouts, index prints, etc.), press the
Menu button. For help, see page 17.
NOTICE: Wait until a print is finished before removing it from the paper tray. Failure to do so can cause
paper misfeeds or jams and can damage the printer.
NOTICE: Do not load more than 20 sheets into the paper tray.
Printing From a Memory Card
You can print directly from a CF (CompactFlash), SD (Secure Digital), MS (Memory Stick),
MMC (MultiMedia Card), or SM (Smart Media), or a USB memory key.
NOTE: Your printer reads only one memory source at a time. Printing is disabled if multiple sources
(cards or camera) are loaded or connected.

Other Documents.
This Agreement may NOT be altered, supplemented, or amended by the use of any other document(s) unless
otherwise agreed to in a written agreement signed by both you and Dell. If you do not receive an invoice or

Payment terms are within Dell's sole discretion, and, unless otherwise agreed to by Dell, payment must be made at
the time of purchase. Payment for Product may be made by credit card, wire transfer, or some other prearranged
payment method. Dell may invoice parts of an order separately. Your order is subject to cancellation by Dell, at Dell's
sole discretion. Unless you and Dell have agreed to a different discount, Dell's standard pricing policy for Dellbranded systems, which include both hardware and services in one discounted price, allocates the discount off list
price applicable to the service portion of the system to be equal to the overall calculated percentage discount off list
price on the entire system. Dell is not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors, in any offer by Dell and
reserves the right to cancel any orders resulting from such errors.
3
Shipping Charges; Taxes; Title; Risk of Loss.
Shipping and handling are additional unless otherwise expressly indicated at the time of sale. Loss or damage that
occurs during shipping by a carrier selected by Dell is Dell's responsibility. Loss or damage that occurs during
shipping by a carrier selected by you is your responsibility. You must notify Dell within 30 days of the date of your
invoice or acknowledgement if you believe any part of your purchase is missing, wrong or damaged. Unless you
provide Dell with a valid and correct tax exemption certificate applicable to your purchase of Product and the
Product ship-to location, you are responsible for sales and other taxes associated with the order. Shipping dates are
estimates only. Title to software will remain with the applicable licensor(s).

ARBITRATION FORUM (NAF) under its Code of Procedure then in effect (available via the Internet at

U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA). Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be
entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Dell will be responsible for paying any arbitration filing
fees and fees required to obtain a hearing to the extent such fees exceed the amount of the filing fee for initiating a
claim in the court of general jurisdiction in the state in which you reside. Each party shall pay for its own costs and
attorneys' fees, if any. However, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys'
fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for fees, the Arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing
party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. Information may be obtained and claims may be filed with

What will Dell do?
During the 90 days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited warranties: During the 90 days
of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited warranties, we will repair any Dell-branded hardware
products returned to us that prove to be defective in materials or workmanship. If we are not able to repair the product,
we will replace it with a comparable product that is new or refurbished.
When you contact us, we will issue a Return Material Authorization Number for you to include with your return. You
must return the products to us in their original or equivalent packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure the
shipment or accept the risk if the product is lost or damaged in shipment. We will return the repaired or replacement
products to you. We will pay to ship the repaired or replaced products to you if you use an address in the United States
(excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the product to you freight collect.
If we determine that the product is not covered under this warranty, we will notify you and inform you of service
alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to us, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage
device(s) in the product(s). Remove any confidential, proprietary, or personal information and removable media such as
floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. We are not responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary, or personal information; lost
or corrupted data; or damaged or lost removable media.
During the remaining years: For the remaining period of the limited warranty, we will replace any defective part with
new or refurbished parts, if we agree that it needs to be replaced. When you contact us, we will require a valid credit card
number at the time you request a replacement part, but we will not charge you for the replacement part as long as you
return the original part to us within 30 days after we ship the replacement part to you. If we do not receive the original
part within 30 days, we will charge to your credit card the then-current standard price for that part.
We will pay to ship the part to you if you use an address in the United States (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S.
possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the part freight collect. We will also include a prepaid shipping
container with each replacement part for your use in returning the replaced part to us.
NOTE: Before you replace parts, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage device(s) in the
product(s). We are not responsible for lost or corrupted data.
What if I purchased a service contract?
If your service contract is with Dell, service will be provided to you under the terms of the service agreement. Please refer
to that contract for details on how to obtain service.
If you purchased through us a service contract with one of our third-party service providers, please refer to that contract
for details on how to obtain service.
How will you fix my product?
We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and in building
replacement parts and systems. Refurbished parts and systems are parts or systems that have been returned to Dell,
some of which were never used by a customer. All parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality. Replacement
parts and systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you bought. Dell owns all
parts removed from repaired products.
May I transfer the limited warranty?
Limited warranties on systems may be transferred if the current owner transfers ownership of the system and records the
transfer with us. The limited warranty on Dell-branded memory may not be transferred. You may record your transfer by
going to Dell's website:

Appendix
Total Satisfaction Return Policy (Canada Only)
If you are an end-user customer who bought new products directly from Dell, you may return them to Dell up to 30 days
after you receive them for a refund or credit of the product purchase price. If you are an end-user customer who bought
reconditioned or refurbished products from Dell, you may return them to Dell within 14 days after the date on the
packing slip or invoice for a refund or credit of the product purchase price. In either case, the refund or credit will not
include any shipping and handling charges shown on your packing slip or invoice and will be subject to a fifteen percent
(15%) restocking fee, unless otherwise prohibited by law. If you are an organization that bought the products under a
written agreement with Dell, the agreement may contain different terms for the return of products than specified by this
policy.
To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-847-4096 to receive a Credit Return Authorization
Number. To expedite the process of your refund or credit, Dell expects you to return the products to Dell in their
original packaging within 5 days of the date that Dell issues the Credit Return Authorization Number. You must also
prepay shipping charges and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment. You may return
software for a refund or credit only if the sealed package containing the diskette(s) or CD(s) is unopened. Returned
products must be in as-new condition, and all of the manuals, diskette(s), CD(s), power cables, and other items
included with a product must be returned with it. For customers who want to return, for refund or credit only, either
application or operating system software that has been installed by Dell, the whole system must be returned, along with
any media and documentation that may have been included in the original shipment.
The “Total Satisfaction” Return Policy does not apply to Dell | EMC storage products. It also does not apply to
products purchased through Dell's Software and Peripherals division. For those products, please instead refer to Dell's
Software and Peripheral's then-current return policy (see the following section, “Dell Software and Peripherals [Canada
Only]”).
Dell Software and Peripherals (Canada Only)
Third-Party Software and Peripherals Products
Similar to other resellers of software and peripherals, Dell does not warrant third-party products. Third-party software
and peripheral products are covered by the warranties provided by the original manufacturer or publisher only. Thirdparty manufacturer warranties vary from product to product. Consult your product documentation for specific warranty
information. More information may also be available from the manufacturer or publisher.
While Dell offers a wide selection of software and peripheral products, we do not specifically test or guarantee that all of
the products we offer work with any or all of the various models of Dell computers, nor do we test or guarantee all of the
products we sell on the hundreds of different brands of computers available today. If you have questions about
compatibility, we recommend and encourage you to contact the third-party software and peripheral product
manufacturer or publisher directly.
Dell-Branded Peripheral Products
Dell does provide a limited warranty for new Dell-branded peripheral products (products for which Dell is listed as the
manufacturer) such as monitors, batteries, memory, docking stations, and projectors. To determine which limited
warranty applies to the product you purchased, see the Dell packing slip or invoice and/or the product documentation
that accompanied your product. Descriptions of Dell's limited warranties are described in preceding sections.

1-Year End-User Manufacturer Guarantee (Latin America and the Caribbean Only)
Guarantee
Dell Inc. (“Dell”) warrants to the end user in accordance with the following provisions that its branded hardware
products, purchased by the end user from a Dell company or an authorized Dell distributor in Latin America or the
Caribbean, will be free from defects in materials, workmanship, and design affecting normal use, for a period of 1 year
from the original purchase date. Products for which proper claims are made will, at Dell’s option, be repaired or replaced
at Dell’s expense. Dell owns all parts removed from repaired products. Dell uses new and reconditioned parts made by
various manufacturers in performing repairs and building replacement products.
Exclusions
This Guarantee does not apply to defects resulting from: improper or inadequate installation, use, or maintenance;
actions or modifications by unauthorized third parties or the end user; accidental or willful damage; or normal wear and
tear.
Making a Claim
Claims must be made in Latin America or the Caribbean by contacting the Dell point of sale within the guarantee
period. The end user must always supply proof of purchase, indicating name and address of the seller, date of purchase,
model and serial number, name and address of the customer, and details of symptoms and configuration at the time of
malfunction, including peripherals and software used. Otherwise, Dell may refuse the guarantee claim. Upon diagnosis
of a warranted defect, Dell will make arrangements and pay for ground freight and insurance to and from Dell’s
repair/replacement center. The end user must ensure that the defective product is available for collection properly
packed in original or equally protective packaging together with the details listed above and the return number provided
to the end user by Dell.
Limitation and Statutory Rights
Dell makes no other warranty, guarantee or like statement other than as explicitly stated above, and this Guarantee is
given in place of all other guarantees whatsoever, to the fullest extent permitted by law. In the absence of applicable
legislation, this Guarantee will be the end user’s sole and exclusive remedy against Dell or any of its affiliates, and
neither Dell nor any of its affiliates shall be liable for loss of profit or contracts, or any other indirect or consequential
loss arising from negligence, breach of contract, or howsoever.
This Guarantee does not impair or affect mandatory statutory rights of the end user against and/or any rights resulting
from other contracts concluded by the end user with Dell and/or any other seller.

environments, or wear from ordinary use.
THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS
WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE (OR JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION). DELL’S RESPONSIBILITY
FOR MALFUNCTIONS AND DEFECTS IN HARDWARE IS LIMITED TO REPLACEMENT AS SET FORTH IN
THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT. FOR CANADIAN CUSTOMERS, EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES
CONTAINED IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, DELL DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND
CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, FOR THE PRODUCT. FOR U.S.
CUSTOMERS, ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES FOR THE PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT
LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR
A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE LIMITED IN TIME TO THE TERM OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. NO
WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WILL APPLY AFTER THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD
HAS EXPIRED. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, OR LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY OR
CONDITION LASTS, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY COVERAGE
TERMINATES IF YOU SELL OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER THIS PRODUCT TO ANOTHER PARTY. DELL
DOES NOT ACCEPT LIABILITY BEYOND THE REMEDIES PROVIDED FOR IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY
OR FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT
LIMITATION, ANY LIABILTY FOR THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES, FOR PRODUCTS

that may apply.
Regulatory Notices
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or conducted along power or signal
leads, that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation or other safety service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or
repeatedly interrupts a licensed radio communications service. Radio communications services include but are not
limited to AM/FM commercial broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, air-traffic control, pager, and Personal
Communication Services (PCS). These licensed services, along with unintentional radiators such as digital devices,
including computers, contribute to the electromagnetic environment.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of items of electronic equipment to function properly together in
the electronic environment. While this computer has been designed and determined to be compliant with regulatory
agency limits for EMI, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause interference with radio communications services, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
Reorient the receiving antenna.
•
Relocate the computer with respect to the receiver.
•
Move the computer away from the receiver.
•
Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the computer and the receiver are on different branch circuits.
If necessary, consult a Dell Technical Support representative or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions.
For additional regulatory information, see the User’s Guide that accompanied your computer.

Dell™ Software License Agreement
This is a legal agreement between you, the user, and Dell Products, L.P (“Dell”). This agreement covers all software that
is distributed with the Dell product, for which there is no separate license agreement between you and the manufacturer
or owner of the software (collectively the “Software”). By opening or breaking the seal on the Software packet(s),
installing or downloading the Software, or using the Software that has been preloaded or is embedded in your computer,
you agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement. If you do not agree to these terms, promptly return all Software
items (disks, written materials, and packaging) and delete any preloaded or embedded Software.
You may use one copy of the Software on only one computer at a time. If you have multiple licenses for the Software,
you may use as many copies at any time as you have licenses. “Use” means loading the Software in temporary memory or
permanent storage on the computer. Installation on a network server solely for distribution to other computers is not
“use” if (but only if) you have a separate license for each computer to which the Software is distributed. You must ensure
that the number of persons using the Software installed on a network server does not exceed the number of licenses that
you have. If the number of users of Software installed on a network server will exceed the number of licenses, you must
purchase additional licenses until the number of licenses equals the number of users before allowing additional users to
use the Software. If you are a commercial customer of Dell or a Dell affiliate, you hereby grant Dell, or an agent selected
by Dell, the right to perform an audit of your use of the Software during normal business hours, you agree to cooperate
with Dell in such audit, and you agree to provide Dell with all records reasonably related to your use of the Software. The
audit will be limited to verification of your compliance with the terms of this agreement.
The Software is protected by United States copyright laws and international treaties. You may make one copy of the
Software solely for backup or archival purposes or transfer it to a single hard disk provided you keep the original solely for
backup or archival purposes. You may not rent or lease the Software or copy the written materials accompanying the
Software, but you may transfer the Software and all accompanying materials on a permanent basis if you retain no copies
Appendix
71
www.dell.com | support.dell.com
and the recipient agrees to the terms hereof. Any transfer must include the most recent update and all prior versions.
You may not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Software. If the package accompanying your computer
contains compact discs, 3.5" and/or 5.25" disks, you may use only the disks appropriate for your computer. You may not
use the disks on another computer or network, or loan, rent, lease, or transfer them to another user except as permitted
by this agreement.
Limited Warranty
Dell warrants that the Software disks will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for
ninety (90) days from the date you receive them. This warranty is limited to you and is not transferable. Any implied
warranties are limited to ninety (90) days from the date you receive the Software. Some jurisdictions do not allow limits
on the duration of an implied warranty, so this limitation may not apply to you. The entire liability of Dell and its
suppliers, and your exclusive remedy, shall be (a) return of the price paid for the Software or (b) replacement of any disk
not meeting this warranty that is sent with a return authorization number to Dell, at your cost and risk. This limited
warranty is void if any disk damage has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, or service or modification by
someone other than Dell. Any replacement disk is warranted for the remaining original warranty period or thirty (30)
days, whichever is longer.
Dell does NOT warrant that the functions of the Software will meet your requirements or that operation of the Software
will be uninterrupted or error free. You assume responsibility for selecting the Software to achieve your intended results
and for the use and results obtained from the Software.
DELL, ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS SUPPLIERS, DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, FOR THE SOFTWARE AND ALL ACCOMPANYING WRITTEN
MATERIALS. This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may have others, which vary from jurisdiction to
jurisdiction.
IN NO EVENT SHALL DELL OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER
(INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS
INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF
USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES. Because some jurisdictions do not allow an exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or
incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
U.S. Government Restricted Rights
The software and documentation are “commercial items” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101, consisting of
“commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in 48
C.F.R. 12.212. Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4, all U.S. Government end
users acquire the software and documentation with only those rights set forth herein. Contractor/manufacturer is Dell
Products, L.P., One Dell Way, Round Rock, Texas 78682.
General
This license is effective until terminated. It will terminate upon the conditions set forth above or if you fail to comply
with any of its terms. Upon termination, you agree that the Software and accompanying materials, and all copies
thereof, will be destroyed. This agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Texas. Each provision of this
agreement is severable. If a provision is found to be unenforceable, this finding does not affect the enforceability of the
remaining provisions, terms, or conditions of this agreement. This agreement is binding on successors and assigns. Dell
agrees and you agree to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right to a jury trial with respect to the
Software or this agreement. Because this waiver may not be effective in some jurisdictions, this waiver may not apply to

you. You acknowledge that you have read this agreement, that you understand it, that you agree to be bound by its
terms, and that this is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between you and Dell regarding the
Software.
