PictBridge-compliant*
(page 17)
The printer supports the PictBridge
standard, so that you can print an image
easily from a PictBridge-compliant digital
camera.
Super Coat 2
The Super Coat 2 feature enables high
durability and moisture or fingerprint
resistance, keeping your prints in good
condition for an extended period of time.
* PictBridge is a standard that allows you to
connect a digital camera directly to a printer
without a PC, enabling direct printing on the
spot.
** Exif (Exchangeable image file format for
digital cameras) Print is a global standard for
digital photo printing. A digital camera
supporting Exif Print stores data relevant to
the shooting conditions 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.
Auto Fine Print 3
The Auto Fine Print 3 analyses the picture
information of an image, including the
Exif data, and corrects the resulting
picture to make an image look more
natural and beautiful.
Exif 2.21** (Exif Print)
support (page 29)
When you use the supplied Picture
Motion Browser software to print an
image from your PC, you can choose Exif
Print picture correction in addition to the
conventional OS picture correction. In
Exif Print correction, the supplied printer
driver uses the Exif data of an image and
the printer‘s color processing to adjust and
reproduce an image with supreme picture
quality.
Red-eye reduction and other
adjustments (PC mode only, page 29)
You can adjust an image to reduce the redeye phenomenon that may occur when the

Cause/Solutions
The printed
pictures are
inferior in
quality.
• Did you print preview
image data?
c When a digital camera saves an image, a
preview image may be saved along with
the primary images. 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.
• Did you allow dust to get
on the print cartridge?
c Wipe the plastic part of the print
cartridge and remove dust.
• Did you allow dust or
finger prints to get on the
printed surface?
c Do not touch the printing surface (the
shiny-side with no imprint). Fingerprints
on the printing surface may result in
imperfect printing.
• Did you use used print
paper?
c Do not print on used print paper.
Printing an image twice on the same
paper will not make the printed image
thicker. Doing so could result in
damages to the printer.
• Did you use an AdobeRGB- c An AdobeRGB image file that supports
compliant digital camera,
the DCF 2.0 will undergo color
not compatible with the
corrections, but an AdobeRGB image file
DCF 2.0, to shoot an image
that does not support the DCF 2.0 will be
in the AdobeRGB mode?
printed in vague colors without color
corrections.
What is an AdobeRGB?
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 extended with the DCF 2.0,
determines the color ranges widely used
in printing industry.
For whether or not a digital camera
supports the AdobeRGB, see the
operating instructions of the digital
camera.

Troubleshooting
The print paper
is not ejected.
If paper jams
If the print paper jams, the ERROR
indicator lights or flashes rapidly and
printing stops.
When the ERROR indicator lights,
remove the print paper and resume
printing.
When the ERROR indicator flashes
rapidly, turn off the power with the
paper tray and print cartridge loaded.
Then turn on the printer again. When
the printer’s initial loading process ends,
remove the paper tray from the printer.
Check if there is jammed paper in the
paper outlet or feeding slot of the printer
and remove the jammed paper, if any.
Take out the
paper tray to
remove the
jammed paper.
Cleaning the inside of
the printer
If white lines or periodical dots are
printed on the pictures, use the cleaning
cartridge supplied and the protective
sheet of the supplied printing pack to
clean inside the printer.
Tip
You can also use the protective sheet
supplied in the optional printing pack.
Make sure that the digital camera and
the computer are disconnected from the

Troubleshooting
Set the paper tray into the
printer and press the 1 (on/
standby) switch.
• Carry out cleaning only when there are
white lines or dots on the print.
• When you can obtain proper printing
performances, cleaning will not improve
the printed picture quality.
• The maximum cleaning times that you can
carry out is approximately 20. As the
number of cleaning times increases, the
cleaning loses its effect.
• Do not place the protective sheet on the
print paper and carry out cleaning, which
may cause paper jam or other troubles.
• If a cleaning does not improve printed
picture quality, please carry out cleaning a
couple of times.
The cleaning cartridge and
protective sheet will clean inside the
printer. The 1 (on/standby)
indicator flashes slowly in green.
After the cleaning is finished, the
protective sheet is automatically
ejected.

Precautions
On safety
• 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.
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.
44 GB
On the AC adaptor
• 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 print cartridge, paper tray or AC
adaptor, 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.
On restrictions on duplication
If duplicating documents with the printer,
pay special attention to the following:
• 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.

Glossary
Auto Fine Print 3
The function automatically corrects the
picture quality so that an image may be
printed in more vivid, clear and
beautiful pictures. It is especially
effective for a darker image with low
contrast. The pictures are corrected to
reproduce natural skin colors, vivid tree
leaf green, or clear sky blue.

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.
PictBridge
A standard specified by Camera &
Imaging Products Association that
allows you to connect PictBridgecomplaint digital camera directly to the
printer without a PC, enabling direct
printing on the spot.
