thumbnail list to be displayed.
•When the width or height of an image is smaller than 480 dots, the
image is displayed in a small size. You can print the image but the
printing quality is rough due to its small image size.
•When you view the printer’s images on a large-screen television, the pictures may be
distorted. To view them in better picture quality, display the preview image.
•When using your printer in low ambient temperatures, the black lines may be
displayed on the LCD display, which is not of a printer’s malfunction. You can print
an image without problem.

Precautions
On safety
• Operate the printer on 120 V AC, 60
Hz (for the 110 to 120V area) or 220
to 240 V AC, 50/60 Hz (for the
models for other areas) only.
• Be careful not to set or drop any
heavy objects on the power cord, or
to damage the power cord in any
way. Never operate this printer with
a damaged power cord.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the printer
and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any
further.
• Never disassemble the printer.
• To disconnect the power cord, pull it
out by the plug. Never pull the
power cord itself.
• When the printer is not going to be
used for an extended period of time,
disconnect the power cord from the
wall outlet.
• Do not handle the printer roughly.
• To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
always unplug the printer from the
electrical outlet before cleaning and
servicing the printer.
• Take care not to scratch or damage
your printer’s LCD screen. Always
use the supplied stylus or a plastictipped pointer to tap on the screen.
Do not use a real pen, pencil, or
other sharp object on the screen.
• Your printer’s screen is made of
glass. Do not drop or submit your
printer to external shock.
82 GB
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.
• The printer is designed to operate
horizontally. Never attempt to
operate the printer in a tilted
position.
• 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.
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, turn off the power and do not
use the printer for at least one hour.
On transport
On restrictions on duplication
When you transport the printer, remove
the print cartridge, paper tray, the
“Memory Stick” or PC card 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.
If duplicating documents with the
printer, pay special attention to the
following:
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.
On cleaning of the LCD display, please
see page 11.
• Duplication of banknotes, coins, or
securities is against the law.
• Duplication of blank certificates,
licenses, passports, private securities,
or unused postal stamps is also
against the law.
• TV program, films, video tapes,
others’ portraits or other materials
may be copyrighted. Unauthorized
video printing of such materials may
infringe the provisions of the
copyright law.

media used with a digital still camera,
video camera, or PC. You can easily
display, save or delete images using this
medium.
There are two types of “Memory Stick”:
an ordinary “Memory Stick” and
“MagicGate Memory Stick.” The
“MagicGate Memory Stick” is equipped
with the MagicGate copyright protection
technology that uses encryption
technology. You can use both types of
“Memory Stick” with your printer.
However, because the printer does not
support the MagicGate standards, data
recorded with the printer is not subject
to MagicGate copyright protection.
To protect “Memory Stick”
images
To prevent accidental erasure of
important image data, use the write
protect switch on the “Memory Stick.”
Slide the switch to the write protect or
write enable position:
xWrite enable position
Slide the switch left to the write
enable position. You can read, write
and delete data on the “Memory
Stick.” Formatting the “Memory
Stick” is also enabled. When storing
images on the “Memory Stick,” set
the switch to the write enable
position.
xWrite protect position
Slide the switch right to the write
protect position. It is now
impossible to write or delete the data
on the “Memory Stick.” We suggest
you set the switch to the write
protect position while just viewing
“Memory Stick” images.

Cannot print.
m Insert the correct set of print
cartridge and print paper.
m Check that the paper tray has paper.
m The thermal head may be
overheated. Leave the printer until
the head cools down and the printer
resumes printing.
m Remove the jammed paper, if any.
An image in thumbnail list is not
properly displayed or printed.
m If the image is displayed but can not
be printed, the file used for printing
is damaged.
m If the mark shown on
the right is displayed
in the thumbnail list,
the image is a JPEG
file created with your
computer, or the
thumbnail data of the
image is damaged.
Select the mark and press PICTURE.
If a preview image is displayed, you
can print the image. If the same
mark is displayed again as a
preview, the image is stored in an
incompatible file format that the
DPP-SV77 does not support or the
image itself is damaged.
m An image which is damaged or has
some kind of problem will not
appear in the image list. A file error
message appears on the display. If
there are no images stored in the
“Memory Stick” or PC card, the no
file message appears on the display.
m If an image is not compatible with
DCF (Design rule for Camera File
system), it may not be printed using
the printer even if it is displayed on
the PC monitor.
m The printer can handle and display
up to 999 image files. If there are
more than 999 images stored in the
“Memory Stick” or PC card, use the
computer to display and handle the
remaining images.
m Depending on the type of digital
still camera used, the aspect ratio of
the recorded image differs, so the
image may not be printed covering
the entire printable area.
m Some types of PC card adaptor that
are not compatible with PCMCIA
ATA cannot be used with this
printer.
The beeps sound.
m Check that you are following the
correct procedures.
Cannot remove the print cartridge.
m Turn the printer off then on. After
the motor sound stops, try to
remove the cartridge.
The
or
indicator is lit or an
error message is displayed.
m Follow the instructions on the
screen.
Additional information
m Depending on the type of digital
still camera used, preview images
may be displayed along with the
primary images in the thumbnail
list. The printed quality of the
preview images will not be as good
as the primary images. Note that if
you delete the preview images, the
data for the primary images may be
damaged.
m Depending on the type of digital
still camera used, the image may be
stretched vertically if it has been
rotated or processed using your
digital still camera. This is not
because of trouble with the printer,
but because the image was rewritten
using your digital still camera.
