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.

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. 61 Photo Viewer Screen Safety Instructions ● The screen contains a few small bright or dark spots. These are normal and do not mean that the screen is damaged in any way. ● ● ● ● To protect against short circuits, do not remove the outside case of the battery. Only use a dry, soft cloth to clean the screen. Do not use liquid or chemical cleansers. ● Do not handle the battery with wet hands or use it near water. If the screen is damaged, contact your dealer. If the liquid crystal solution gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If the liquid crystal solution gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately. ● Do not expose the battery to water or high humidity. ● Do not drop, puncture, disassemble, mutilate, or shortcircuit the battery. ● Do not place the battery near or into fire or water. ● Do not use a battery that is leaking or damaged in any way. The lamp in the photo viewer screen contains mercury. Dispose of it according to local, state, or federal laws. ● Do not charge the battery on devices except this product. ● Do not charge the battery near open flame or in very hot locations. ● Keep the battery away from heat sources. ● Do not leave the battery in a vehicle to prevent the battery from overheating. ● Do not insert objects into any openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short-circuit components. ● Prevent the battery from coming into contact with metal objects that could short-circuit it, such as coins or keys. ● Do not solder wires or terminals directly to the battery. ● Do not touch battery terminals. Battery Safety Instructions ● ● may damage the battery or other devices, or may cause an explosion. If battery acid gets into your eyes or on your skin, immediately rinse the affected area thoroughly with water and seek medical treatment. If a battery is swallowed, seek medical treatment immediately. Use only an Epson Li-ion battery model EU-112 for this printer according to the directions in the user documentation.

Box 93012, Long Beach, CA 90809-3012 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. Please follow the following refund procedure: 1) Print out the PictureMate Print Pack Satisfaction Guarantee Form, available at www.epson.com/ picturemateguarantee, or request this form to be mailed to you by calling (562) 276-1347 for U.S.A. or Puerto Rico or (905) 709-8676 for Canadian residents. 2) Send the following items to PictureMate Print Pack Satisfaction Guarantee P.O.
