Precautions
ª Before, During, and After Printing
To ensure high quality, precise printing, always observe
the following points. Failure to observe these points can
not only result in poor quality prints, but also paper jams,
malfunctions and breakdowns of the Digital Photo Printer.
≥Do not write on the paper before printing on it.
≥Do not forcibly pull out the Ink Cassette or paper, shake
the printer, or add more paper while printing is in
progress.
≥Removing the Paper Cassette while printing is in
progress could result in a paper jam in which the
jammed paper cannot be pulled out. The jammed paper
can only be removed when the Paper Cassette is
inserted.
≥While printing is in progress, no other buttons besides
the Display/Cancel button used to cancel multiple prints
will work.
≥The printer will make a little noise when printing, but this
is not malfunction.
≥Printing 2 or more pages, or printing in cold or hot
temperatures may take a little more time.
≥If ink or paper runs out while printing is in progress, it is
unnecessary to press the print button again after you
replace the ink or paper.
≥If you print a dark image with this Digital Photo Printer, it
may become a lighter print by the AGC (Auto Gain
Control).
≥When paper is bent or wrinkled, it may fall out of the
paper exit tray (located above the Paper Cassette).
≥Do not allow more than 10 sheets of printed paper in the
paper exit tray, as doing so may lead to a paper jam.
ª Ink Cassette/Paper Set Notes
≥Use Ink Cassette/Paper Sets that bear the
mark.
≥Use the Ink Cassette with the paper provided in the
same box. One Ink Cassette is designed to provide
enough Ink Film to print the number of sheets provided
in that Ink Cassette/Paper Set.
≥Do not store the Ink Cassettes or paper under high
temperatures, high humidity, or direct sunlight. Doing so
could result in a deterioration of printing quality. They
may also become unusable.
≥Do not forcibly pull the Ink Film or paper. Do not allow finger
prints or dust to get attached, and do not get water on them.
≥Do not reuse printed paper or Ink Cassettes that have
already been used up.
≥Do not open the Ink Cassette/Paper Set package
immediately, to become familiar with the surrounding
temperature before using it. If the Ink Cassette/Paper
Set has been stored at a low temperature, condensation
could form when brought into a warmer room.
≥If the Ink Cassette/Paper Set is defective due to a
manufacturing error on the part of Panasonic, we will
replace the Ink Cassette/Paper Set with an equivalent
Ink Cassette/Paper Set. Panasonic shall not bear any
responsibility beyond replacing the product.
ª Ink Cassette Notes
≥Do not remove the label from the Ink Cassette.
≥Before inserting an Ink Cassette, take up any slack in
the Ink Film. Take up slack by pressing your finger in the
hole with the arrow on it, and turning the spool in the
direction of the arrow.
≥Make sure that the Ink Cassette is oriented properly,
and insert it all the way in.
≥If you change the Ink Cassette type after selecting
pictures in Card Input, you must reselect the pictures.
≥If you change the Ink Cassette type after storing pictures
in Video Input, the Input screen may return. To display a
stored still picture, press the Display button.
≥When the power is turned on while a used up Ink
Cassette is inserted, it will take some time when the
start screen displays. Shutting the power off when the
start screen displays may not immediately turn off the
printer. (When the start screen appears and the display
disappears, then the power can be turned off)
ª Notes on Using 10 × 15 cm printing
paper
≥When printing borderless prints, select [With trim]. A
blank border can be created around the top, bottom, left
and right sides of a picture when selecting [Without trim].
≥When printing with borderless paper, the top, bottom,
left and right sides of the picture will be cut off.
Cutting Borderless Paper After Printing
1 Fold in both directions along the perforation
lines.
2 Tear along the perforation lines.
≥There are perforation lines on both ends of the
borderless paper. Be sure to tear off both sides.
1
ª Paper/Paper Cassette Notes
≥Do not fold or bend the paper. Lay it flat, smooth it out,
and insert it into the Paper Cassette with the print side
(the glossy side of the paper with no markings on it) up.
≥Do not load too much paper in the Paper Cassette. No
more than 25 sheets of 9 × 12 cm printing paper, or 36
sheets of the other types of paper should be loaded.
≥Do not dirty the print side (white side) of the paper.
≥When printing on the back side of paper with another
printer, the ink may not easily dry depending on the type
of printer used.
≥Dust and humidity damage the paper. Remove all
remaining paper from the Paper Cassette, return them
to their original bag, and store them flat.

ª Notes on Handling Finished Prints
In order to preserve finished prints in the best condition,
always observe the following points. Failure to observe
these points could result in a deterioration of print quality
or injury.
≥Do not affix cellophane tape to the printed surface.
Particularly be careful not to let plastic desk pads,
business card cases, or plastic erasers come into
contact with the printed surface.
≥Do not touch the printed surface with your fingers.
≥Do not spill or apply volatile solvents such as alcohol to
the printed surface. Doing so could result in
discolouration or fading.
≥Do not leave printed surfaces in contact with one
another. Doing so could cause colour transfer between
the two images. Colour transfer could also occur if a
printed surface is left in contact with any other type of
paper under pressure for an extended period of time.
≥Do not store prints under conditions of high
temperatures or high humidity. Leaving prints under
such conditions for an extended period of time could
cause a deterioration in print quality. Do not leave prints
exposed to direct sunlight.
≥When prints are to be stored in an album, select an
album that has nylon pockets. Other materials could
cause colour transfer or discolouration. (Polypropylene
and cellophane are also acceptable materials.)
ª Notes on Automatic Printing
≥Auto Print may stop if the Photo Printer’s speed is
slowed down due to its cooling mechanisms. In this
case, perform the Auto Print through the Digital Video
Camera again.
≥If several photoshots were recorded consecutively,
some prints may be skipped during Auto Print.
≥If the ink or paper is replaced while Auto Print is in
progress, one image may be inadvertently printed twice.
≥The Auto Print function cannot be used to print multiple
copies of the same image in succession.
≥To stop Auto Print while it is in progress, press the stop
button on the Digital Video Camera. Pressing the
CANCEL button on the Photo Printer will not stop Auto
Printing.
≥A continuous photoshot pictures cannot be Auto Printed.
ª Notes on Cards
≥If a card’s image does not display properly, turn off the
power, remove the card, and reinsert it.
≥Titles combined with stamps and other such things
recorded to cards may not always display on the Digital
Video Camera.
ª Notes on the SD Memory Card WriteProtect Switch
LOCK
≥The SD Memory Card has a write-protect switch. Sliding
the switch to [LOCK] prevents the recording of data to
the card as well as the deletion of data from the card.
Sliding back the switch permits such operations.
26
ª Notes on Storing Settings to the Photo
Printer’s Memory
When the following settings are configured, they will
remain stored until they are altered again, even if the
power is turned off. (If the Photo Printer’s power is turned
off by disconnecting the Power Cable instead of pressing
the power button, all configurations will be lost.)
≥[Input], under [BASIC]
≥Creation dates in [Card], under [BASIC]
≥The screen division number in [Multi] and [Album] under
[FUNCTION]
≥[COLOUR] and [BRIGHT] in [LCD], under [OPTION]
≥[Trim], under [OPTION]
≥[Date], under [OPTION]
≥Colour settings in [Set colour], located under [Calendar]
in [FUNCTION]
ª Notes on the Screen Saver
When the same picture displays for an extended period of
time, an after-image may be burned into the LCD Monitor
depending on the picture. However, the monitor will not
be broken. If this occurs, turning off the power and leaving
it off for several hours will cause the after-image to
disappear. To prevent after-images from occurring, the
Photo Printer contains a setting that can cause a screen
saver to display if no operations are performed on the
printer within 30 minutes.
ª Notes on Handling the Digital Photo
Printer
≥When spraying or using insecticides or other volatile
solvents in the vicinity of the Photo Printer, be careful
not to allow any to come into contact with the printer. If
such solvents come into contact with the printer, they
can damage the outer case and cause the surface to
peel. Do not allow rubber or plastic products to be in
contact with the printer for extended periods of time
either.
≥When not using the Photo Printer for extended periods
of time, turn off the power and disconnect the Power
Cable from the outlet to conserve energy. (0,04A of
electricity are still used when the power button alone is
turned off and the computer is on STAND BY.) Since
damage to the printer may be incurred, turn on the
power at least once every 6 months and use the Photo
Printer.
≥When transporting this printer, during a move for
example, pack the printer back into its original case. If
you no longer possess the case, wrap the printer in a
blanket or some other such cloth material to prevent any
damage. (Remove the Paper Cassette and the Ink
Cassette, and close the lid.)
ª Installation Notes
≥Install the Photo Printer away from other devices that
generate magnetic fields.
≥The magnetic fields generated by stereo speakers or
large motors will distort the pictures produced by the
Photo Printer. Electromagnetic waves produced in this
Photo Printer and in televisions, video games, and other
devices can cause mutual interference, disrupting both
the display on the television screen and the print picture.

ª Maintenance Notes
Q&A
≥Do not use Benzene, paint thinner, or other solvents to
clean the printer. Most of the printer surface is plastic.
Do not use solvents such as Benzene and paint thinner
to wipe the printer since they can damage the surface of
the printer and cause the surface to peel. To clean the
surface, wipe up any dust with a soft, dry cloth. If the
Photo Printer is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in
kitchen detergent (neutral) diluted with water and wring
out thoroughly. Then, wipe off the dust with the cloth and
wipe again with a dry cloth. When using a synthetic
cloth, follow the precautions in the cloth’s usage
instructions.
ª About Functions
1:
1:
2:
2:
ª Internal Temperature
≥Although it varies with the ambient temperature, if the
internal temperature of the Photo Printer rises above a
certain level while printing, the error message “The
temperature of the device is too high, please wait.” will
appear on the LCD Monitor. In this situation, the printing
operation will halt temporarily. This is not a malfunction.
After waiting for a few minutes for the temperature to
drop (four or five minutes at the most), the Photo Printer
will automatically resume printing. The printing operation
may be halted temporarily in any of the following cases,
which will result in a longer than normal printing time.
1 When printing images continuously
2 When the ambient temperature is high
3 When the internal temperature of the printer rises
quickly because the ventilation holes or other parts
are blocked
≥Note that if two or more of these conditions exist,
printing will take even longer. Therefore, make every
effort to find a well-ventilated location for installing this
printer.
3:
3:
Can the Photo Printer print images from HDTV
broadcasts?
No, because the video signals are different.
What should I do about poor colouring?
The colour and other parameters can be adjusted by
selecting [Picture], under [OPTION] on the MENU
screen.
5:
Is it possible to insert a title for each [Album]
Mode screen?
No, it is not possible in normal [Album] Mode. It is
possible in [Multi] Mode, but it is not possible to insert
a different title for each mini-frame.
5:
6:
6:
Why do pictures get cut off when I print them on
borderless paper?
Borderless paper designed for 10 × 15 cm printing
paper pictures have a length-width ratio of 1: 2 . The
length-width ratios of Digital Video Cameras are 3:4,
so the top and bottom portions of pictures will be cut
when printing on borderless paper.
ª About the Digital Photo Printer in
General
7:
7:
What is the “thermal sublimation transfer
printing system”?
This is a type of printing method offering excellent
image quality. Other methods exist, such as the
direct thermal printing method.
8:
8:
What does “256 colour gradations” mean?
It means that the Digital Photo Printer can express
256 gradations of colour between white and the
darkest colour formed by the 3 primary colours.
Because each of the 3 colours can be expressed in
256 gradations, the total numbers of colours is 256
× 256 × 256 (approximately 16.780.000 full
colours).
9:
9:
How do the Ink Cassettes and paper work?
The Ink Cassettes contain 3 colours in one unit:
cyan, magenta, and yellow. The printing paper has a
special coating that improves the adhesion of the ink.
ª Notes on the LCD Monitor
≥If the printer becomes extremely cold as may occur in
cold environments, the LCD Monitor may display images
darker than usual when the power is turned on. Normal
brightness will return once the internal temperature
rises.
≥The LCD Monitor is made of high-precision technology.
It contains over 99,99% quality pixels. However, a
minuscule amount of pixels (less than 0,01%) may
contain defects or may constantly emit a certain colour
(red, blue, or green). This is not a malfunction of the
monitor, and will have no effect on prints.
What kind of Video Cameras can be connected to
the Digital Photo Printer?
Any type of Video Camera that is equipped with an
S-VIDEO OUT Socket or a VIDEO OUT Socket can
be used.
4:
4:
ª Condensation
≥When a bottle is taken out from a refrigerator in summer
and left standing for a while for instance, droplets of
water will form on it. This phenomenon is known as
condensation. Condensation will form if the printer or Ink
Cassette/Paper Set is moved to a location with a
considerable difference in temperature or humidity, such
as:
1 A high-humidity location, such as one filled with steam
2 When suddenly moved from an air-conditioned
environment to one with high temperatures and high
humidity
3 A room that has just been heated
If condensation occurs, turn the power on and wait for 2
hours. If the paper or rollers are damp with condensation,
the printed surface that is produced may be dirty.
When printing, what is the difference between
“Photo Shot” and normal video images?
When an image is shot using the “Photo Shot”
function of a Digital Video Camera, the result will be
a high-quality image with little noise or distortion.
Therefore, a print of this image will be of higher
quality than a print of a normal video image.

10: What is the maximum number of picture files that
the Photo Printer can handle?
10: The Photo Printer can handle up to 65.536 files.
11: Regarding cards, how many pixels can the Photo
Printer handle in an image?
11: The Photo Printer can deal with up to approximately
25 million (6.144 × 4.096) pixel images.
12: How should I store my prints?
12: We recommend keeping them in an album. When
doing so, make sure that the pockets are made of
nylon, polypropylene, or cellophane. Using other
materials may result in colour transfer or
discoloration.
ª About Paper and Ink Cassettes
13: How should I store the Ink Cassettes and paper
after having opened them?
13: Do not leave the Ink Cassettes or paper in a location
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a location subjected
to high temperature or high humidity. Place the
cassette or paper back in its original bag, and then
store them flat. These supplies should be used as
soon as possible after they are opened.
14: What kind of paper can the Digital Photo Printer
print on?
14: The Digital Photo Printer can print on 9 × 12 cm
printing paper, 16 Pre-Cut adhesive paper, and 10 ×
15 cm printing paper. Do not use other types of
paper, since doing so could cause paper jams or
other malfunctions. Use the special Ink Cassette/
Paper Set when printing.
15: Can the Digital Photo Printer print images
continuously?
15: If [Number] is selected under [OPTION] on the
MENU screen, up to 10 sheets can be printed
continuously. Do not allow more than 10 sheets of
printed paper collect in the paper exit tray, as doing
so may lead to a paper jam.
16: How many sheets can be printed with a single Ink
Cassette?
16: An Ink Cassette can print the number of sheets that
are included in the same Ink Cassette/Paper Set. For
example, the Ink Cassette/Paper Set VW-APA50E is
intended for 50 sheets, so the Ink Cassette can print
50 sheets. Ink Cassettes cannot be rewound and
used again.
17: What kinds of Ink Cassettes and printing paper
can I use with the Digital Photo Printer?
17: Use Ink Cassette/Paper Sets that bear the
mark.
28
ª About Unclean Thermal Heads
If a line appears across a printed picture and pictures
cannot be printed clearly, Thermal head (the 1 portion on
the below picture), located in the insertion portion of the
Ink Cassette, may be dirty. In that case, insert a cotton
swab (about 15cm in length) all the way into the Ink
Cassette and clean thermal head.
≥Be sure to disconnect the Power Cable from the outlet
before cleaning thermal head.
≥Do not insert your finger into the Ink Cassette Insert
Location, as an injury may result.
