completely.
An IC tag is attached to the printing surface protection
sheet. Be careful not to damage the IC tag or give it a
shock.
Notes
• When handling the film sheets, do not touch the
printing surface of the film sheet. Dust, finger
prints, or sweat are likely to cause unsatisfactory
printing.
• Load the film sheets so that they lay flat in the
film tray. If the film sheets are curled, they will
overflow the film tray and the printing position
may shift. Also, it may cause film sheet jamming.
• If the film sheets are mistakenly placed in the film
tray with the printing surface facing up and the
reverse sides are printed on, we recommend that

Loading Film Sheets
Note
If the seal is caught by the cover of the film tray,
or is left curled in the film tray, this may cause
film sheet jamming. Be sure to remove the seal
completely from the film tray.
If the cover of the film tray comes off
Remove the film tray and re-attach the cover.
Insert film tray.
When placing the unit vertically
Pay attentions to the following points when you load
film sheets with the unit placed vertically.
• Do not give a shock to the film tray. Doing so may
cause the film sheets to move inside the film tray. This
may result in the film jamming.
• When removing or inserting the film tray, hold it while
pushing the cover down with both hands. If you hit the
film tray, the cover of the film tray will open and the
sheets of film may pop out from the film tray.

completed, the PRINT indicator goes off, and the
unit returns to READY status.
Operation
Notes
• During printing, do not open the covers.
• To prevent film jamming, do not allow more than
30 printouts to remain on the film output slot
when placing the unit horizontally, and more than
15 printouts to remain when placing the unit
vertically. The message “REMOVE PRINTS”
may appear even if fewer than 30 (or 15) printouts
have accumulated, depending on the conditions
under which the unit is used. Also, ejected
printouts may drop from the film output slot.
• Do not put a printout which has been removed
from the film output slot back inside the film
output slot. This may cause film jamming.
If the unit does not print
When an error message is displayed on the LCD, the
unit does not print. Take remedies according to the
information given in “Messages” (on page 35).
Notes on storing your printouts
• Do not leave the printouts in direct sunlight or bright
room light. Store in a cool, low-humidity place (under
25 °C (77 °F)). We recommend storing the printouts in
a polypropylene pouch in a cabinet.
• Do not allow any volatile organic solvent such as
benzine or alcohol to come in contact with the
printouts. This can cause fading of the printout. If the
printouts come in contact with such liquid, wipe them
off quickly.
• Adhesives from cellophane tape or PVC will cause
fading of the printout. Be careful when storing
printouts.
• Do not stack the printouts on or under a freshly
developed diazo copy sheet as this could cause the
film sheets to fade or stick to each other.

Also, if the film is used in this state, spots are likely to
appear on the printout.
• To store a half-used package of film, replace the film
in its original packing and reseal the package. If
possible, before using sealed film, place it, in its
sealed package, in a warm room for several hours.
Doing so prevents condensation from forming when
the film is removed from its package.
Safety
Miscellaneous
• Operate the unit using the power source specified in
“Specifications” (on page 33).
• Be careful not to damage the AC power cord by
placing or dropping heavy objects on it; it is dangerous
to use the unit with a damaged AC power cord.
• If you do not intend to use the unit for a long time,
disconnect the AC power cord.
• Unplug the AC power cord by grasping the plug, not

• Do not disassemble the unit.
• Do not remove the cabinet. There is a danger of
electric shock from the internal parts.
• Be careful not to spill water or other liquids on the
unit, or to allow combustible or metallic material to
enter the cabinet. If used with foreign matter in the
cabinet, the unit is liable to fail, or present a risk of fire
or electric shock.
• If the unit malfunctions or if a foreign body falls into
the cabinet, disconnect the power immediately and
consult your Sony dealer.
Installation
Avoid placing the unit in a location subject to:
mechanical vibration
– high humidity
– excessive dust
– direct or excessive sunlight
– extremely high or low temperatures
– Ventilation holes are provided to prevent the unit
from overheating. Be careful not to obstruct them
with other units or by covering the unit with a cloth
etc.
Condensation
• If the unit is subjected to wide and sudden changes in
temperature, such as when it is moved from a cold
room to a warm room or when it is left in a room with
a heater that tends to produce large amounts of
moisture, condensation may form inside the printer. 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 forms, turn off the power and
allow the printer to stand for at least one hour.
• If the film is subjected to wide and sudden changes in
temperature, condensation may form on the film in the
