5 ●Handling Precautions When moisture has condensed in the printer The formation of water droplets inside the printer is referred to as condensation. Condensation occurs in the following situations. • When the room in which the printer is located is heated rapidly • When cold air (from an air-conditioner, etc.) blows directly onto the printer • When the printer is moved from a location of low humidity to a location of high humidity When moisture has condensed in the printer, moisture will adhere to the paper, deteriorating print quality or causing paper jams. When moisture has condensed or is likely to condense, leave the printer on and wait until there is no possibility for condensation to occur. Do not use solvents such as paint thinner or benzene when cleaning Spraying the printer with insecticide or wiping with paint thinner or benzene may deteriorate or discolor the printer cabinet. When the printer cabinet has become dirty, wipe with a soft cloth. When soiling is particularly heavy, dampen a soft cloth with water or neutral detergent diluted with water, and wipe off the dirt after wringing the cloth out firmly. Do not allow the printer cabinet to be in contact with rubber or vinyl products for an extended period of time. This can cause discoloration or peeling of the coating Extended contact with rubber, vinyl or plastic products can cause discoloring or peeling of the coating. Operate the printer at least once every six months Not operating the printer for a long period of time can impair printer function. Operate the printer at least once every six months. Transporting when Moving, etc. When transporting the printer, place the printer in the packaging materials and container in which it was packaged. When these are no longer available, package the printer with sufficient cushioning materials so that it is able to withstand shocks and impacts during transport. Remove the paper cassette and ink cassette from the printer before transporting. For Safe Use

36 3 Click on “Apply” or “OK”. • Color Adjustment using the “ICM” Setting Enables printing at a color that most closely resembles the color on your computer monitor. Selection is possible among 4 types of renderings that are normally supported under Windows 2000/XP. Picture: Most appropriate for photographs. Graphics: Most appropriate for bar and pie graphs. Match: For higher quality printing. Proof: Most appropriate for logos. Precautions Regarding the Printer Driver 1) In the case of printing in A4 size, a minimum of 50 MB of available memory is required in the hard disk (excluding regions using the OS and applications) in order to prepare printing data. 2) When installing the printer driver, be sure to follow the installation procedure described in this manual to ensure proper installation. 3) If you remove the USB cable after the printer driver was installed, wait more than 5 seconds before connecting it again. Otherwise, the printer may not operate properly. When you turn off and on the printer or change the input selection, wait similarly. 4) Depending on the specifications or setting of the OS or PC, if processing has been interrupted while printing is in progress, the PRINTING lamp on the printer may continue flashing. At this time, temporarily turn off the printer power and then turn it back on again. 5) If the printer is turned off or the power cable is removed while printing is in progress, print data may remain in the print spooler. At this time, delete the remaining print data and then execute the next print job. 6) While “Please Wait” is displayed on the LCD panel of the printer, printing is not being performed. When the message disappears, printing will resumed automatically. Tips • The same picture is printed out twice for postcards. • During background printing, mouse and key operation may not be smooth or printing may take some time.

37 7) While data is transferred or printing is performed, be sure not to remove the USB cable, not to change the printer input selection, or not to turn off the printer power until printing is completed. Otherwise, abnormal printing may be caused. 8) If processing has been interrupted while printing is in progress (while the PRINTING lamp on the printer flashes or lights), temporarily turn off the printer power and then turn it back on again. 9) Do not delete print jobs in the spooler while transferring data. If you delete them inadvertently, temporarily turn off the printer power and then turn it back on. 10) Pure white portions of the image (R = 255, G = 255, B = 255), are not adjusted. These portions of the image will always print white. 11) If you select “ICM” for color adjustment on Windows 98/Me, the matching method is limited to “Photo”. 12) Set the bi-directional communication function to ON in the printer properties dialog. Use the following procedure to check that the bi-directional communication function is set to ON. (1) Select “Start” - “Settings” and then “Printers”. (2) Click on “OLYMPUS P-440” to select this printer, right-click to open a pop-up menu, and then click on “Properties”. (3) Click on “Spool Settings” in the “Details” tab. (4) Check that “Enable bi-directional support for this printer” is checked. 13) Depending on the version of Photoshop, item “Printer color control” is displayed in the print dialog. When printing with this setting ON after storing multiple pieces of image data in the printer spooler, normal colors may not be printed. When printing with “Printer color control” ON, do not store multiple pieces of image data in the spooler. 14) In some applications, the number of copies that have been set in the printer driver may not function. Set the number of copies in the print dialog box of the application.
