Notes on LCD screen
• The displayed image on the screen is not
identical in picture quality and colors with the
printed image because phosphor methods or
profiles differ. Please regard the displayed
image as just a reference.
• Do not press against the LCD screen. The
screen may be discolored and that may cause a
malfunction.
• Exposing the LCD screen to direct sunlight for
long periods may cause malfunctions.
• The LCD screen is manufactured using
extremely high-precision technology so over
99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective
use. However, there may be some tiny black
points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or
green in color) that constantly appear on the
LCD screen. These points are normal in the
manufacturing process and do not affect the
recording in any way.
• Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a
cold location. This is not a malfunction.

Printing selected
images
This section explains how to display the
images of a memory card
or an external device on
the printer’s LCD screen
and print the selected
images.

Before you begin
You need preparations 1 through 5
(pages 10 to 16), and the following:
• “Inserting a memory card” (page 17) or
“Connecting a camera or other external

Picture Motion Browser, your PC must
meet the following system requirements:
OS: Microsoft Windows ® XP
Professional/Windows ® XP Home
Edition/Windows® 2000
Professional/Windows ® Millennium
Edition, pre-installed (IBM PC/AT

Edition, Windows 98 Second Edition,
Windows NT, other versions (ex.
Server) of Windows 2000 are not
supported.)
CPU: Pentium III 500MHz or faster
(Pentium III 800MHz or faster is
recommended.)
RAM: 128 MB or more (256 MB or more is

On the supplied CD-ROM
The supplied CD-ROM contains the
following software:
• Printer driver for DPP-FP55: The
software describes the printer’s
requirements and enables printing from
the computer.
• Picture Motion Browser: Sony’s
original software application that allows
you to handle photographs and moving
images—capturing, managing,
processing, and printing.
Installing the software
• Do not remove the USB cable from or connect
it to the printer during data communication
or printing. The printer may not work
properly.
• Do not allow the PC connected to the printer
to switch to standby mode or hibernation
mode during printing. If you do so, the
printer may not print properly.
• We cannot guarantee operations with all
personal computers, even though they may
meet or exceed the system requirements.
• Picture Motion Browser supports the DirectX
technology and the DirectX installation may
be required.
• If the Picture Motion Browser is installed on a
PC on which the Cyber-shot Viewer is
already installed, the Cyber-shot Viewer will
be overwritten and replaced by the Picture
Motion Browser. The browsing folders once
registered in the Cyber-shot Viewer will be
automatically registered in the Picture Motion
Browser. When using the Picture Motion
Browser, you can view the folders easier than
you can when using the Cyber-shot Viewer,
as the registered folders are displayed by
group when viewing folders. With its
improved red-eye reduction adjustment and
newly-added tone curve adjustment, the
Picture Motion Browser also offers more
powerful editorial features. You can also use
the software to write data into an external
memory card for taking it outside.+-

You can use a commercially-available
application software to print an image
from the DPP-FP55. Select “DPP-FP55” in
the print dialog box and select the print
paper size in the page setup dialog box.
For details in print settings, see steps 5 and

On “borderless” setting in the “Paper
size” section
When using an application other than the
Picture Motion Browser, an image might
be printed with borders even if you select
borderless print in the “Paper size” section
of the “Paper/Output” tab in the “Sony
DPP-FP55 Properties” dialog box.
When you select the borderless print
option, the printing rage information for
borderless print will be supplied to the
application. Some applications, however,
may arrange and print the image with
borders within the specified range.
If this occurs, do either of the following to
print an image without borders:
• When you can set print range with an
application, set an image to be printed
fully in the print range. For example,
select “Full page photo print” or a
similar option.
• Set a larger value in the “Enlarge/
Reduce” text box in the “Paper/Output”
tab of the “Sony DPP-FP55 Properties”
dialog box.
If borders remain on the right and
bottom sides of a printed image even
after you set a larger value, check
“Upper left reference”.
In either case, make sure to display and
check the preview image before printing.

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.

If the protective sheet sticks to the ink
ribbon, that may cause damage to the
printer. Check the following before
you start cleaning.
• The protective sheet has been
inserted with the no-imprint side
facing up.
• The protective sheet you are using is
the one designed for this printer.

• 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.

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.
82 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, AC adaptor,
the memory card, or an external device
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.

About the “Memory Stick”
What is “Memory Stick”?
“Memory Stick” is a compact-size IC
recording medium with a large capacity. It
has been designed not only for
exchanging/sharing digital data among
“Memory Stick” complaint products, but
also for serving as an insertable/
removable external storage medium that
can save data.
Types of “Memory Stick”
“Memory Stick” is available in the
following types to meet various functional
requirements:
Continued
83 GB
Additional information
• “Memory Stick” (Not compatible with
“MagicGate”): “Memory Stick” stores
any type of data except copyrightprotected data that requires the
“MagicGate” copyright protection
technology.
• “MagicGate Memory Stick” : Equipped
with the “MagicGate” copyright
protection technology.
• “Memory Stick” (Compatible with
“MagicGate”): Equipped with the
“MagicGate” copyright protection
technology and compatible with high
speed data transfer. This “Memory
Stick” can be used with the “Memory
Stick” compliant devices. (Data transfer
speed depends on the “Memory Stick”compatible device.)
• “Memory Stick PRO” : Equipped with
the “MagicGate” copyright protection
technology. The “Memory Stick PRO”
can be used only with “Memory Stick
PRO” compliant devices.
• “Memory Stick-ROM”: “Memory StickROM” stores pre-recorded, read-only
data. You cannot record on “Memory
Stick-ROM” or erase pre-recorded data.
x About “Memory Stick Duo” and
“Memory Stick PRO Duo”
“Memory Stick Duo” is smaller than the
standard-size “Memory Stick” media. By
attaching a Duo adaptor, it can become the
same size as the standard-size “Memory
Stick” so it can also be used in products
compatible with standard-size “Memory
Stick” media.
x About “Memory Stick Micro” (“M2”)
media
“Memory Stick Micro” (“M2”) media is
even smaller than the “Memory Stick Duo”
media. The M2 media comes with an
adaptor for the standard size and that for
the “Memory Stick Duo” size. By attaching
either of the adaptors, the “Memory Stick
Micro” media can also be used in products
compatible with standard-size “Memory
Stick PRO” or “Memory Stick PRO Duo”.

What is “MagicGate”?
“MagicGate” is the general name of a
copyright protection technology developed
by Sony. This technology provides
authentication and encryption; mutual
confirmation is performed between the
“Memory Stick” media and the
“MagicGate” compliant device that the
other can record and play the copyrightprotected data correctly. When the
authentication is established, the data
encryption is performed.
When the data is played, the
authentication is also performed. Only
when authentication is established, the
data is decrypted to the original status and
played. Copyright-protected data cannot
be played with a device other than
authenticated ones.
The printer is not equipped with the
“MagicGate” technology and cannot read
or write the data subject to the
“MagicGate” copyright protection.
