Welcome!
PictureMate® Deluxe Viewer Edition is your easy-touse, personal photo lab. Just insert a digital camera
memory card and you’re ready to print brilliant, longlasting photos. Because PictureMate is light and
portable, you can print whenever and wherever you
take pictures. Plus, your PictureMate photos are
archival; generations from now your PictureMate prints
will be as vibrant as they are today.
A Quick Introduction to the Digital
Photography Process
With film cameras, the process was
simple; buy film, take pictures, leave
the film at the photo lab, and come
back later for your photos and
negatives. Since you had negatives,
you could take them back later if you
wanted reprints.
The digital process is simple too, and it gives you
complete control. Just follow the basic steps shown on
the right.
2
1. Review and Delete
After you finish taking your photos, review
them on your digital camera’s screen.
Delete the photos you don’t want.
2. Print
Insert your camera’s memory card in
PictureMate, choose your photos, and
print.
3. Save
To preserve your digital photo files
(just like film negatives), save them to
a CD, flash drive, or your computer.
Then you can reprint them any time.
4. Clear the Memory Card
After you save your photo files, use your camera to
delete them from your memory card so you have
space for more photos.
Special Features
Printing with your PictureMate becomes even easier
with these special features:
From the PictureMate photo
selection menu, you can print all
your photos by simply pressing
the Print button. Or you can
select just the ones you want.
Photo selection menu (See page 10.)
You can crop photos right from
PictureMate—no computer required.
(See page 17.)
Crop
DPOF
If your camera supports DPOF (Digital
Print Order Format), you can pre-select
which photos to print while the memory
card is still in your camera. Then, when
you insert the card into PictureMate, it
knows which photos you chose; just
press OK, and then Print. (See page 16.)
You can add Disney® character frames to
your photos and see them on the
PictureMate screen before you print.
(See page 14.)
If you have a PictBridge®- or USB DP
(USB Direct Print)-enabled camera, you
can connect the camera to PictureMate and control
printing right from your camera. (See page 31.)
If you have a Bluetooth®-enabled PDA, cell
phone, or computer, you can send photos
wirelessly to PictureMate for printing. You
just need the optional Epson® Bluetooth Photo Print
Adapter. (See page 32.)
If you want to print outdoors or in other
places without convenient electrical outlets,
you can buy the optional PictureMate battery.
(See page 40.)
Note: PictureMate also supports P.I.M. (PRINT Image
MatchingTM) and Exif Print image enhancement standards that
are built into many cameras. To see if your camera is P.I.M.enabled, check www.printimagematching.com or see your
camera manual.

section tells where to buy one and how to replace the
used photo cartridge.
When PictureMate needs a new photo cartridge, you
see a message on the photo viewer screen.
Tip: If you see a message while printing, you can still replace the
photo cartridge and continue the current print job. Just replace it
without turning off and unplugging PictureMate.
Note: Use your PictureMate Photo Cartridge within six months
of installing it and before the expiration date on the package. For
photo storage and handling tips, see page 16.
Caution: Do not attempt to refill the photo cartridge. This could
result in damage to PictureMate from ink spills.
34
Buying a PictureMate Print Pack
The PictureMate Print Pack has everything
you need to print in one box: PictureMate
Photo Paper and a new PictureMate Photo
Cartridge. You can buy a Print Pack
wherever PictureMate is sold or from
retailers that sell printer supplies.
Note: If you are out of PictureMate Photo Paper, but do not see
the Replace cartridge message, you can still print. Use Epson
Premium photo paper, borderless 4 × 6 inches for optimal print
quality and prints that resist water, smudging, and fading. For
more information, see “How many photos will I get from a
PictureMate Print Pack?” on page 65.
You can buy the Print Pack from your local retailer or
from the Epson Store at www.epsonstore.com (U.S.

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your PictureMate, read the following safety
instructions to make sure you use it safely and effectively:
●
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on
the printer.
●
If you use the printer in places where the use of printers is
restricted, such as in airplanes or hospitals, follow all
instructions in those places.
●
Do not insert objects through the slots in the printer.
●
Take care not to spill liquid on the printer and the AC
adapter.
●
Do not put your hand inside the printer or touch the photo
cartridge during printing.
●
Always turn the printer off using the
On button. Do not
unplug the printer or turn off the power to the outlet until
the power light goes out.
●
Before transporting the printer, make sure that the photo
cartridge is installed.
●
Leave the photo cartridge installed. Removing the cartridge
can dehydrate the print head and may prevent the printer
from printing or cause ink to leak out.
●
Do not remove the memory card or turn off the printer
while the computer and the memory card are
communicating (when the memory card light is flashing).
●
The methods for using memory cards vary according to
card type. Be sure to refer to the documentation packaged
with your memory card for details.
●
Use only memory cards compatible with the printer.
●
Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends
beyond the base of the printer in all directions. The printer
will not operate properly if it is tilted at an angle. If you
place the printer by the wall, leave more than 4 inches
(10 cm) between the back of the printer and the wall.
●
When storing or transporting the printer, do not tilt it, stand
it on its side, or turn it upside down. Otherwise, ink may
leak from the cartridge.
●
Leave enough space in front of the printer for the paper to
be fully ejected.
●
Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and
humidity. Also, keep the printer and the AC adapter away
from direct sunlight, strong light, water, or heat sources.
●
Do not leave the printer in places subject to
high temperature, such as your car.
Otherwise the printer may be damaged or
ink may leak.
59
●
Avoid places subject to dust, shock, or vibration.
●
●
Leave enough room around the printer to allow for
sufficient ventilation.
Avoid using electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or
automatic timers.
●
●
Place the AC adapter near a wall outlet where the plug can
be easily unplugged.
Keep the entire computer system away from potential
sources of electromagnetic interference, such as
loudspeakers or the base units of cordless telephones.
●
Do not place or store the printer, the AC adapter, or the
optional battery outdoors.
●
Do not use a damaged or frayed power cord, AC adapter,
and the optional battery.
●
Do not block or cover the vents and openings in the
printer.
●
●
Power supply cords should be placed to avoid abrasions,
cuts, fraying, crimping, and kinking. Do not place objects on
top of power-supply cords and do not allow the AC adapter
or power-supply cords to be stepped on or run over. Be
particularly careful to keep all power-supply cords straight
at the ends and the points where they enter and leave the
AC adapter.
If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure
that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the
extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating.
Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all devices
plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall
outlet’s ampere rating.
●
Never disassemble, modify, or attempt to repair the AC
adapter, power cord, printer, and options by yourself
except as specifically explained in the printer’s guides.
●
Unplug the printer and the AC adapter, remove the
optional battery from the printer, and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
●
Use only the power-supply cord that comes with this
product. Use of another cord may result in fire or electrical
shock, or injury.
●
The AC adapter model A361H is designed for use with the
printer with which it was included. Do not attempt to use it
with other electronic devices unless specified.
●
Use only the type of power source indicated on the AC
adapter’s label, and always supply power directly from a
standard domestic electrical outlet with the AC power cord
that meets the relevant local safety standards.
●
Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as photocopiers or
air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
60
The power cord or plug is damaged; liquid has entered
the printer, the AC adapter, or the optional battery; the
printer, the AC adapter or the optional battery has been
dropped or the casing damaged; the printer, the AC
adapter or the optional battery does not operate normally
or exhibits a distinct change in performance. (Do not
adjust controls that are not covered by the operating
instructions.)
●
Do not use with wet hands.
WARNING: The cords included with this product contain
chemicals, including lead, known to the State of California to
cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands
after handling. (Provided in accordance with Proposition 65
in Cal. Health & Safety Code §25249.5 et seq.)
Photo Cartridge Safety Instructions
●
Do not use a photo cartridge beyond the date printed on
the cartridge carton; otherwise, it may result in reduced
print quality. For best results, use up the photo cartridge
within six months of installing it.
●
After bringing a photo cartridge inside from a cold storage
site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for at least
three hours before using it.
●
Store photo cartridges in a cool, dark place.
●
Keep photo cartridges out of the reach of children and do
not drink the ink.
●
Store each photo cartridge so that the bottom of its
packaging faces down.
●
Do not shake the photo cartridge after removing it from the
bag; this can cause leakage.
●
●
Be careful when you handle used photo cartridges, as
there may be some ink remaining around the ink supply
ports. If ink gets onto your skin, wash the area thoroughly
with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems
continue after a thorough flushing, see a doctor
immediately.
Do not touch the green IC chip on the bottom of the
cartridge. Doing so may prevent normal operation and
printing.
●
The IC chip on the photo cartridge retains a variety of
cartridge-related information, such as the amount of ink
remaining, so that the cartridge may be removed and
reinstalled freely. However, each time the cartridge is
inserted, some ink is consumed because the printer
automatically performs a reliability check.
●
If you remove the photo cartridge for later use, protect the
ink supply ports from dirt and dust and store it in the same
environment as the printer. A valve in the ink supply ports
makes covers or plugs unnecessary, but the ink may stain
items that come into contact with this area of the cartridge.
Do not touch the ink supply ports or the surrounding area.
●
Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; this can
cause leakage.
●
Do not dismantle photo cartridges or try to refill them. This
could damage the print head.
●
Install the photo cartridge immediately after you remove it
from its package. If you leave a cartridge unpacked for a
long time before using it, normal printing may not be
possible.

or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a
doctor immediately.

How many photos will I get from a PictureMate
Print Pack?
Epson has conveniently packaged the PictureMate Photo
Cartridge with PictureMate Photo Paper, so that purchasing
supplies for PictureMate is simple and saves time. The
PictureMate Print Pack provides both supplies together, so
replacing both the PictureMate Photo Cartridge and paper
with a new PictureMate Print Pack is convenient and
affordable.
Actual yields will vary based on types of photos printed,
images and frequency of use. For example, printing many
copies of the same photo, or printing many black and white
or sepia photos, may result in fewer prints than the number
of sheets of paper included in your PictureMate Print Pack.
Also, the PictureMate Photo Cartridge once installed should
be replaced with a new one within 6 months of installation.
You may be able to print more than the number of sheets of
paper included in your PictureMate Print Pack. In this case the
cartridge monitor indicates the cartridge can still be used. You
can continue printing with paper from another PictureMate
Print Pack or Epson Premium photo paper which is available
from many resellers or Epsonstore.com. There are other
photo papers available but most are not formulated to be
fully compatible with the PictureMate Photo Cartridge. Using
other papers may result in poor color reproduction, print
quality problems or more fading.
PictureMate Print Pack Satisfaction Guarantee:
If you are dissatisfied because you receive fewer prints than
the number of sheets of paper included in your PictureMate
Print Pack, you can return the remaining sheets of
PictureMate Photo Paper with the dated sales receipt and
UPC code from the PictureMate Print Pack packaging within
one year of purchase and Epson will refund a maximum of 29
cents per sheet returned, plus a maximum $1.10 for postage.
The Satisfaction Guarantee is a prorated refund that covers
only end user claims in the US and Canada. It does not cover
use of any non-Epson ink or paper, commercial use of the
printer or paper consumed by proofs or printing errors.
