Notes
• Do not touch the printing surface (the side where nothing is
printed).
• Do not place the print paper in a dusty location. Fingerprints
or dust on the printing surface may result in imperfect
printing.
• Use the print paper recommended for this printer only. If you
use a different type of paper, it may cause problems and the
printer may not print properly.
• To prevent paper from jamming, do not insert another sheet
of print paper before you take out the printout.
• Do not hand-write or type an address or other characters or
drawings in the reverse side of the print paper before
printing. This may cause paper jamming, or failure in
printing.
• You cannot type on the printing surface; use an oil pen to
write greetings or other characters or drawings on the
printing surface.
Printing
Printing an image recorded by Sony Digital
Still Camera DSC-F1
You can directly print the image recorded by the Sony Digital Still Camera DSC-F1.
Preparation
Point the printer’s infrared port to the camera’s infrared
port face to face. Controllable area is about 4 - 12 inches
(10 - 30 cm) in terms of straight line distance and an angle
of 15 degrees right or left.
Notes
• Position the infrared ports of both equipment within the
controllable area. Do not place them outside the area nor place
them too close, which may interrupt transferring or results in
noises.
• Do not cover the infrared port with your hand or any other
objects.
• Infrared rays cannot pass through a wall, opaque glass, etc. If
they pass through glass, etc., the controllable distance
becomes short.
• Keep other infrared devices such as infrared cordless
headphones away during printing.
• Very bright lighting may cause malfunction.
Within 4 - 12 inches
• Use the camera on the AC power adaptor.
(10 - 30 cm)
Infrared port
Printing
As you must operate the camera to print, refer to the
camera’s manual for the procedure.
When the printer receives the first data from the camera,
it sounds a short beep.
When the printer receives all data successfully, it sounds
a long beep and starts printing.
Printing takes about 70 seconds per sheet.
Notes
• Do not move the printer and the camera during printing.
• You may move the printer and the camera after you hear a
long beep, except when making several prints.
• The printer will sound intermittent beeps when it cannot
receive data properly. If this happens, reposition the camera
and the printer as described above.
• To use other functions of the printer, open and read
”Readme” file in the supplied CD-ROM. The file contains
up-to-date information on the printer.

Precautions
On safety
On cleaning
• Operate the printer on 120 V AC, 60 Hz only.
• Be careful not to put or drop any heavy objects on the
power cord, or to damage the 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.
• To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug. Never
pull the 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.
• Never disassemble the printer.
• Do not handle the printer roughly.
• To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always unplug
the printer from electrical outlet before cleaning and
servicing the printer.
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 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 electronic equipment near the printer. The
printer will not work properly in electromagnetic
fields.
• The printer is designed to operate horizontally. Never
attempt to incline the printer.
• 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.
• Do not cover the printer with cloth or other materials.
On moisture condensation
If the printer is brought directly from a cold location to
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.
