Operation
• Stand the paper roll up vertically. If you place the
paper roll horizontally, the paper roll may roll around
and fall. This may cause an injury.
Loading the Paper Roll
and Ink Ribbon
Recommended printing pack
The following printing pack is made especially for
the UP-GR700.
Be sure to use the ink ribbon and the paper roll in the
carton as a set.
Note
When you make only 203 × 254 mm size (8 × 10 inch
size) printouts, one set of the ink ribbon and paper roll
allows you to print about 170 printouts. However, if you
make printouts of 203 × 305 mm size (8 × 12 inch size)
too, using the same roll of ink ribbon, the total number
of printouts will decrease. Also, some portion of the ink
ribbon may be left over. Do not use this left-over ink
ribbon. Replace both the paper roll and ink ribbon at the
same time.
Notes on handling the paper roll and ink
ribbon
• One set of the ink ribbon and paper roll allows you to
print about 170 printouts of 203 × 254 mm size (8 × 10
inch size). Do not replace the printing pack if it has
only been partially used. The number of printouts that
can be printed may not be guaranteed if you replace
the ink ribbon and paper before they have run out.
• We recommend that you put on gloves when handling
the paper roll.
Operation

Notes on storing your printouts
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, or conditions of
high temperature and high humidity, which could
cause the colors to fade.

On condensation
Precautions
Safety
Miscellaneous
• Operate the printer using the power source specified in
“Specifications” (page 22)
• Be careful not to damage the power cord by placing or
dropping heavy objects on it; it is dangerous to use the
unit with a damaged power cord.
• If you do not intend to use the unit for a long time,
disconnect the power cord.
• Unplug the power cord by grasping the plug, not the
cable itself.
• Do not disassemble the unit. 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 service facility or your Sony dealer.
• If the printer 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 quantities of moisture,
condensation may form inside the printer. In such
cases the printer may not work properly, and may even
develop a fault if you persist in using it. If moisture
condensation forms, turn off the power and leave the
printer standing for at least one hour.
• If the printing pack is subjected to wide and sudden
changes in temperature, condensation may form on
the ink ribbon or paper. This will cause the printer to
malfunction. Also if the printing pack is used in this
state, spots are likely to appear on the printout.
• To store a half-used printing pack, replace it in its
original packing and reseal the package. If possible,
keep the sealed printing pack in a cool, dark location.
To subsequently use the printing pack, place it, in its
sealed package, in a warm room for several hours.
Doing so prevents condensation from forming when
the printing pack is removed from its package.
On Transporting the Printer
Do not transport the printer with the supplied
accessories attached. Doing so may cause malfunction.
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
objects or by covering the unit with a cloth etc.

Remove the feet, if attached.
2
Open the front door.
3

Remove the paper roll from the paper core shaft.
Precautions
19
It is recommended that you store the ink ribbon and
paper roll in the package they came in after you
remove them.
5
Attach the tape next to the left side of the ink ribbon
base as illustrated.
Tape
Cleaning the thermal head and paper
feeding section
When a vertical white stripe appears on the printout or
the color distribution becomes uneven, clean the thermal
head and the paper feeding section, such as guide rollers,
bottom section and paper tray section.
Also, it is recommended that you clean the thermal
head and paper feeding section whenever you replace
the ink ribbon and paper roll.
To clean the thermal head
Note
Since the thermal head is still very hot just after printing
is finished, be careful not to touch the thermal head
when cleaning it. Touching the thermal head may burn
you and may cause damage to the thermal head.
Miscellaneous
6
Put the large cushion back in place in the front door.
Clean the thermal head with a soft cloth moistened with
ethyl alcohol.
Note
Do not use a fuzzy cloth.
To clean the paper feeding section
7
Put the paper core shaft, without a paper roll, inside
the printer.
8
Close the front door.

Bottom section
Cleaning
When the cabinet becomes dirty
Clean the cabinet 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, or a chemical cloth, which may damage the
finish.
20
Precautions
Clean the guide rollers gently with a soft cloth
moistened with water while turning them.
Clean the bottom section and paper tray section gently
with a soft cloth moistened with water.
4
Remove dust from the groove on the printer.
If it is difficult to remove dust such as the dust
from the ink ribbon
Clean the dirty parts with a soft cloth moistened with
ethyl alcohol.
Cleaning the filter
Ventilation holes are provided on the both sides of the
printer. Clean the filter on the side panel of the printer.
It is recommended that you clean the filter every month.
Or if the STATUS indicator blinks in blue frequently
(this indicates that the head is in the cooling state), clean
the filter. If the filter is dirty, the time required for
cooling the thermal head is lengthened and this causes
the printing time to become longer.
Remove the air filter cover.
2
Remove the air filter, and then shake the air filter
gently to remove dust.
5
Reset the filter and the filter cover on the printer as
they were.
