Notes on LCD screen
• The displayed image on the screen is not
identical in picture quality and colors with the
printed image because phosphor methods or
profiles differ. Please regard the displayed
image as just a reference.
• Do not press against the LCD screen. The
screen may be discolored and that may cause a
malfunction.
• Exposing the LCD screen to direct sunlight for
long periods may cause malfunctions.
• The LCD screen is manufactured using
extremely high-precision technology so over
99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective
use. However, there may be some tiny black
points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or
green in color) that constantly appear on the
LCD screen. These points are normal in the
manufacturing process and do not affect the
printing in any way.
• Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a
cold location. This is not a malfunction.

An AdobeRGB is a color space that the
Adobe Systems Incorporated employs
and uses as the default setting for
image processing software including
the Adobe Photoshop. The
AdobeRGB, an optional color space

Precautions
On safety
On installation
• Avoid placing the printer in a location
subject to:
– vibration
– high humidity
– excessive dust
– direct sunlight
– extremely high or low temperatures
• Do not use electrical equipment near the
printer. The printer will not work
properly in electromagnetic fields.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
printer.
• Leave enough room around the printer
so that the ventilation holes are not
blocked. Blocking these holes may cause
internal heat build-up.
• Be sure to use the AC adaptor supplied
with the printer. Do not use other AC
adaptors, as this may cause a
malfunction.
• Do not use the supplied AC adaptor to
other devices.
• Do not use an electrical transformer
(travel converter), as this may cause
overheat or a malfunction.
• In case the cord of the AC adaptor is
damaged, never use it any longer, as this
may cause danger.
On moisture condensation
If the printer is brought directly from a
cold location to a warm location or placed
in an extremely warm or humid room,
moisture may condense inside the unit. In
such cases the printer will probably not
work properly and may even develop a
fault if you persist in using it. If moisture
condensation occurs, unplug the AC
power cord of the printer and do not use
the printer for at least one hour.
On transport
When you transport the printer, remove
the ink ribbon, paper tray, AC adaptor, the
memory card, or an external device from
the printer and put the printer and its
peripherals in the original box with the
protective packaging.
If you no longer have the original box and
packing parts, use similar packing material
so that the printer will not be damaged
while being transported.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with
a soft dry cloth, or a soft cloth lightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of solvent, such as
alcohol or benzine, which may damage the
finish.

Notes on use
On Ink ribbon
• Do not touch the ink ribbon or place the
ink ribbon in a dusty location.
Fingerprints or dust on the ink ribbon
may result in imperfect printing.
• Do not rewind the ink ribbon and use
the rewound ink ribbon for printing.
Otherwise, proper printing result will
not be obtained, or even a malfunction
may occur.
If the ink ribbon does not click into
place, remove it and then re-insert it.
Only when the ink ribbon is too slack to
be loaded, wind the spool of the ink
ribbon in the direction of the arrow to
remove the slack.
64 GB
• Never disassemble the ink ribbon.
• Do not pull out the ribbon from the ink
ribbon.
• Do not remove the ink ribbon while
printing.
On print paper
• The side without the imprinting is the
printing surface. Inferior print quality
may result if the printing surface is
contaminated with dust or fingerprints.
Be careful to avoid touching the printing
surface.
• Do not bend the paper or tear it off at the
perforations before printing.
• To avoid paper jam or malfunctions of
the printer, make sure the following
before printing:
– Do not write or type on the print
paper. Use the oil ink pen to write on
the paper after printing. You cannot
type on the print paper using an inkjet printer, etc.
– Do not attach sticker or stamps on the
print paper.
– Do not fold or bend the print paper.
– Total number of print paper does not
exceed 20 sheets.
– Do not print on the used print paper.
Printing an image twice on the same
paper will not make the printed image
thicker.
– Use the print paper for this printer
only.
– Do not use the print paper ejected
without printed.
• Do not print on used sheets of print
paper or attempt to rewind the ribbon
inside the ink ribbon. Doing so could
result in damages to the printer.
• Do not remove the paper tray while
printing.

DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)
This camera conforms with the DCF
(Design rule for Camera File system)
standard established by JEITA (Japan
Electronics and Information Technology
Industries Association) to maintain file
exchangeability and compatibility
between digital cameras and related
products. Complete exchangeability and
compatibility, however, are not
guaranteed.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
The format used to record the
information necessary for automatically
printing images shot by a digital camera
at a printing shop or with a home-use
printer. The printer supports DPOF
printing and can automatically print the
preset number of copies of the DPOF
preset images.
Exif 2.21 (Exif Print)
Exif (Exchangeable image file format for
digital cameras) Print is a global
standard for digital photo printing. A
digital camera supporting Exif Print
stores the data relevant to the conditions
of shooting as each shot is taken. The
printer utilises the Exif Print data stored
in each image file to ensure the printed
result matches the original shot as
closely as possible*1.
*1 When the “Auto Fine Print 3” is enabled
and an image (JPEG file) is shot by an Exif
Print (Exif 2.21)-compliant digital camera,
the image is automatically adjusted to its
optimum picture quality and printed.
