Technical Support

Frequently asked questions

1) Q: Can I use touch-enabled technology for my Digital Picture Frame?

A: The LCD screen does not support touch-enabled technology. Please use the buttons or remote control to control the Digital Picture Frame.

2) Q: If I keep showing the same photo for a long time, will it damage the LCD screen?

A: No. The Digital Picture Frame can display the same photo continuously for a long time. But it is recommended not to show the same picture continuously for more than 1 month.

3) Q: How do I store music files?

A: First, use a personal computer and popular audio editing software to convert your music to MP3 format. The Digital Picture Frame will only play

MP3 files so all Windows Media Player™ and/or iTunes™ files will have to be converted first. You can use a card reader or your digital camera to transfer those files to your memory card.

4) Q: Does the Digital Picture Frame have built-in memory?

A: Yes.

5) Q: What is the maximum picture size?

A: The Digital Picture Frame is able to display pictures up to 12 Mega Pixels.

6) Q: What is the best picture resolution displayed on the screen?

A: The frame’s best resolution is 1024x768.

7) Q: How come the Digital Picture Frame does not show some of my photos?

A: The Digital Picture Frame is designed to show photos following the same camera industry standards format as digital cameras. This format is a JPEG format. Images, such as web images, scanned images, or photos in RAW format, are not stored according to camera industry standards and therefore cannot be displayed correctly on the Digital Picture Frame. Please use your

PC applications to convert such images into standard JPEG format before viewing them on the Digital Picture Frame.

Maintenance and Precaution

• The Digital Picture Frame is for indoor use only.

• To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock; do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture.

• Do not block the ventilation holes on the back of the Digital Picture

Frame at any time.

• Keep your Digital Picture Frames out of sunlight. Direct sunlight may cause damage.

• Do not open the case of the Digital Picture Frame. There is a risk of electric shock, and there are no user serviceable parts inside.

Opening the case will void your warranty.

• Do not use the Digital Picture Frame if conditions could allow condensation to occur, or damage may result.

• Your Digital Picture Frame is a complicated electronic device and cannot withstand shock from drops.

Cleaning the LCD screen

• Treat the screen gently. The screen on the Digital Picture Frame is made of glass and can be scratched or broken.

• If fingerprints or dust make the LCD screen dirty, we recommend using a soft, non-abrasive cloth such as a camera lens cloth to

• clean the LCD screen.

If you use an LCD Cleaning Kit sold on the market, apply the cleaning liquid to the cloth. Do not apply the liquid directly to your

LCD screen.
