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. The message “REMOVE PRINTS” may appear even if the number of printouts less than 30 has accumulated, depending on the usage environmental condition.

• Do not put the 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 in the LCD, the unit

does not print. Take remedies according to “Messages”

(on page 25).

Notes on storing your printouts

• Do not leave the printouts in direct sunlight or bright room light. Store in a cool and low humid place (under

77 °F (25 °C)). We recommend storing the printouts in a polypropylene pouch in a cabinet.

• Do not allow any volatile organic solvent such as water 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.

The image data is stored in the unit memory.

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 film tray. This will cause the printer to malfunction.

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.

Transporting the Unit

Before transporting the unit, remove the supplied accessories and then put them back into their original packing. Transporting the unit with the supplied accessories still installed may cause malfunctions.

Note

It is dangerous to move the unit with the casters used to stand it vertically. Do not use the caster to move the unit.

Cleaning the Cabinet

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.

Note

Be sure to set the ON/STANDBY switch on the front panel to STANDBY before cleaning the cabinet.

Maintenance

Perform the following maintenance regularly after every

500 printings.

• Replacing the cleaning roller

• Cleaning the thermal head and separation rubbers

• Cleaning the fan filter

In addition to the above maintenance, regular maintenance is required after every 5,000 printings.

However, you should ask your nearest Sony dealer to perform this maintenance.

You can check the total number of prints using the

TOTAL PRINTS item of the INFORMATION menu.

For details, see “To confirm the total number of prints made since you started the unit” (on page 15).

Note

Before starting the following maintenance, be sure to set the ON/STANDBY switch on the front panel to

STANDBY, and then the main POWER switch on the rear panel to OFF.
