Some Do's And Don'ts On The Safe
Use Of Equipment
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards
but, like any electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and
safety is to be assured.
DO read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
DO ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and
interconnections between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with
the manufacturer's instructions. Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or
changing connections.
DO consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of
your equipment.
DO be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
DON'T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally,
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
or if it is damaged in any way — switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your
dealer.
remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it
is designed for unattended operation or has a standby mode. Switch off using the
switch on the equipment and make sure that your family knows how to do this. Special
arrangements may need to be made for infirm or handicapped people.
use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the
requirements of road safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your
hearing.
obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings.
Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws — to ensure complete
safety always fit the manufacturer's approved stand or legs with the fixings provided
according to the instructions.
allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL...
— NEVER let anyone especially children push anything into holes, slots or any other
opening in the case — this could result in a fatal electrical shock;
— NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind — it is better to be
safe than sorry!
CAUTIONS
Exercise caution when moving the printer. If you
drop the unit, do not attempt to use it. If during use
you notice that the cabinet is
damaged, shut the printer
down, unplug it and contact
your JVC dealer. Use of the
printer under these
conditions can lead to fire or
electric shock.
DO NOT place heavy objects on the printer’s
power cord, or leave the cord near any heatgenerating appliance, as this can damage the cord.
Avoid excessive pulling or twisting of the power
cord. If the power cord
becomes cut or otherwise
damaged, contact your JVC
dealer. When unplugging the
printer, DO NOT pull on the
cord. Hold the plug itself and
remove it from the AC outlet.
Use of the printer with a
damaged power cord can
lead to fire, electric shock
and unit malfunctions.
DO NOT remove the cover and attempt to repair or
modify the printer. There are high-voltage
components within the unit,
and the risk of electric shock
and unit malfunctions exists.
If a problem occurs, contact
your JVC dealer.
Illustrations of this video printer maydiffer
slightly from production models.

ABOUT THERMAL HEADS
• The thermal heads, necessary for printing, are located
within the unit. The heads can become extremely
warm. To prevent possible burns and injuries, do not
touch the thermal heads.
• When the printer is used for extended periods, the
thermal heads experience wear and tear just like VCR
heads. As the thermal heads become worn, print
quality will gradually decrease. When you notice a
decline in quality, it is possible that the heads may
need to be replaced. Consult your JVC dealer.
MOISTURE CONDENSATION
If condensation occurs inside the printer, it may adhere
to print paper during printing, causing poor quality
prints and paper jams. If you think condensation may
exist within the unit, let the unit sit for at least 2 hours
(with the power on) to dry sufficiently. If paper is stuck
within the unit, remove it before turning the power on.
Unused print paper subjected to moisture should not
be used for printing.
• Condensation may occur in the following situations:
1) In a room when the heater suddenly comes on;
2) In the direct path of cool air from an air
conditioner;
3) When the unit is moved from a cool place to a
warm place.
DUST
Due to dust or lint adhering to print paper, or to
extreme variations in temperature, a small degree of
colour smearing or lines may be visible in prints.
Failure to heed the following precautions may
result in damage to the printer.
1. DO NOT place the printer . . .
... in an environment prone to extreme temperatures
or humidity.
... in direct sunlight.
... in a dusty environment.
... in an environment where strong magnetic fields
are generated.
... on a surface that is unstable or subject to
vibration.
2. DO NOT block the printer’s ventilation openings.
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the printer.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of
the printer.
5. AVOID violent shocks to the printer during
transport.
CAUTION:
Changes or modifications not approved by JVC
could void user’s authority to operate the
equipment.

• Ink Cassette (50 Prints)
Print your favorite images, just like
snapshots.

PV-25UFAU
(Super Fine HG
type)
• Standard Print Paper (25 Sheets)
• Ink Cassette (25 Prints)
Suitable for storing Print paper.
(Sticker type)
USES
* This unit does not incorporate a function for splitting the screen into 16 pictures.
Printing on 16-picture multi-print sticker paper is impossible unless the digital still camera or the
application software has a 16-picture splitting function.
When multiple pictures are printed on a sheet, the print positions may vary from the intended
positions.
Before Printing
● Do not touch printing side of the paper.
● Do not use paper that is torn or curled, as
this can result in paper jamming.
● Do not use paper that is wet or damp.
Printing may not be possible and paper
jamming may occur.
● Do not touch or pull out the ink cassette’s
ink sheet.
● Keep young children away from the ink
cassette’s ink sheet.
● When the ink cassette is empty, replace it
with a new one. An empty ink cassette
cannot be used. Do not try to rewind and
re-use cassette.
● Do not expose the paper to high temperatures, high humidity and/or direct sunlight.
● You can write on one side of a PV-50SFAE
print sheet.
● If you want to write something or stick a
stamp on a PV-50SFAE sheet, wait until
printing is finished. If you write something
or stick something on before printing, the
printer may not work properly.
● Carefully read the precautions in the blank
paper sheet set box and on the back of the
blank sheet set before using.
After Printing
● If you touch a fresh print with wet hands,
the print image may be discolored.
● If a print absorbs organic cleaning solvents
(alcohol, ester, keton, etc.), the colours will
fade.
● If cellophane tape or soft PVC are affixed to
a print, the chemical reaction will cause
accelerated colour fading.
● When writing on a PV-50SFAE print sheet,
be sure to use a pencil or an oil-based
writing utensil. If you apply too much
pressure, you’ll leave imprints on the print
sheet.
Storage
● Avoid storing prints in areas subject to high
temperatures or humidity, or near a heater
or heat-generating device.
● Do not store prints in a soft plastic folder.
Accelerated colour fading may result due to
the chemical reaction, or the print(s) may
stick to the file.
● Do not store 2 prints with the printed sides
touching, as the sheets may stick together.
● Store print paper in its box, on a level
surface. Failure to do so may cause the print
paper to curl or bend, which can result in a
paper jam within the unit.
