Refresh mode

Due to one of the characteristics of the device, images stored for a long time or read many times may be subject to data error.

The photo frame refreshes the internal memory automatically to prevent these errors, depending on the status of the internal memory.

The confirmation screen for refreshing the internal memory is displayed automatically when the refresh is needed.

The refresh starts automatically when you select [Yes] or when no operation is attempted for 30 seconds. If you select [No], the confirmation screen for refreshing is displayed again when the refresh is needed.

Do not turn off the photo frame while the internal memory is being refreshed. It may cause a malfunction.

It may take approximately 5 minutes to refresh the internal memory.

Notes

• We recommend that you perform a backup of your data periodically to avoid losing it.

• Avoid running a slideshow continuously with fewer than 10 images with the interval set to 3 sec. Doing so could corrupt image data in internal memory.

Importing images to the internal memory

You can use the photo frame as a digital album by saving important images in the internal memory.

Tips

• When saving images to the internal memory, you can use [Image import size] in the menu to preset whether to resize images to the optimum size or save them as they are without compressing them

(page 40).

Troubleshooting

If trouble occurs

Before submitting the photo frame for repair, try using the following guidance to solve the problem.

If the problem persists, consult with your Sony dealer or Sony service facilities.

Power supply

Symptom

The power is not turned on.

Check item

• Is the AC power plug inserted correctly?

• Is the built-in battery pack out of charge?

Cause/Solutions

c Connect the AC adaptor properly.

Displaying images

If the power is turned on but images are not displayed or the settings of the operation screen cannot be configured, confirm the following check items.

Symptom

No images are displayed on the screen.

Images are not played back in the order of shooting date.

Check item

• Is a memory card inserted or an external device connected properly?

• Does the memory card contain images saved with a digital camera or other device?

• Are images stored on the external device?

• Is the file format compatible with DCF?

• Were these images saved from a computer?

• Were these images edited on a computer?

Cause/Solutions

c Insert a memory card (page 12) or connect

an external device (page 41) properly.

c Insert a memory card containing images or connect an external device containing images.

c Check the file formats that can be displayed. (See Operating Instructions –

“Specifications”) c A file that is not compatible with DCF may not be able to be displayed with the photo frame, even if it can be displayed with a computer.

c If you edit or save an image file on a computer, the date of the file was modified. Images are thus displayed in order of the modified date instead of the shooting date.

c A file that is not compatible with DCF may not be able to be displayed with the photo frame, even if it can be displayed with a computer.

c If the mark shown on the left is displayed, the image file may not be supported by the photo frame because, for example, it is a

JPEG file that was created with your computer. Also, the image file may be supported, but may not contain thumbnail data.

Without a “Memory Stick Duo” adaptor, you can use both a standard-size “Memory Stick” and the compact-size “Memory Stick Duo”.

*3

When using a “Memory Stick Micro” with the photo frame, always insert it into an M2 adaptor.

*4 “M2” is an abbreviation for “Memory Stick

Micro”. In this section, “M2” is used to describe a

“Memory Stick Micro”.

*5 Data reading/recording that requires “MagicGate” copyright protection cannot be performed.

“MagicGate” is the general name of a copyright protection technology developed by Sony using authentication and encryption.

*6 The photo frame does not support 8 bit parallel data transfer.

Notes on use

• For the latest information on the “Memory

Stick” types that the photo frame supports, see the “Memory Stick” compatibility information on the Sony web site: http://www.memorystick.com/en/support/ support.html

(Select the area where you use your photo frame, and then select “Digital Photo Frame” from each area page.)

• Do not insert more than one “Memory Stick” at the same time, or this may cause trouble with the photo frame.

• If you use a “Memory Stick Micro” with the photo frame, the “Memory Stick Micro” needs to be inserted into an “M2” adaptor.

• If you insert a “Memory Stick Micro” into the photo frame without an “M2” adaptor, you may be unable to remove the “Memory

Stick Micro”.

• If you insert a “Memory Stick Micro” into an

“M2” adaptor, and insert the “M2” adaptor into a “Memory Stick Duo” adaptor, the photo frame may not operate properly.

• When you initialize a “Memory Stick”, use the initialization function of your digital camera. If you initialize it with your computer, images may not be displayed properly.

• When you perform initialization, all the protected images are erased. To avoid erasing important data by accident, make sure to check the contents of the “Memory

Stick” before initialization.

• You cannot record, edit, or delete data if you slide the write-protect switch to LOCK.

• Do not attach any other material than the supplied label on the labelling position.

When you attach the supplied label, be sure to attach it to the labelling position. Be careful that the label does not stick out.
