9 ENGLISH Preparation Printing For Your Reference Introduction Care and storage Moisture condensation is water vapor in the air that becomes liquid, and collects on the printer surface. This phenomenon occurs under the following conditions. The room in which the printer is placed is rapidly heated or cooled. The printer is directly subjected to cool air, such as from an air conditioner. The printer is moved from a cold place to a warm place. Moisture in the air condenses on the paper, deteriorating print quality or causing paper jams. Under conditions where condensation has occurred or may occur, do not operate the printer until it is dry or until there is no possibility that condensation will occur. Spraying an insecticide near the printer, or wiping it with thinner or benzene for example, may damage or discolor the printer cabinet. Use a soft cloth to clean the outside of the printer cabinet. For difficult to remove stains, dampen a soft cloth with water or a mild detergent diluted with water, and wring out the cloth to remove as much of the moisture as possible before wiping the outside of the cabinet. Deterioration and discoloration may occur if the printer is in contact with rubber or plastic products for an extended period of time. If the printer is not used for an extended period of time, it may malfunction. Operate the printer at least once every six months. When lifting or carrying the printer, use both hands. When transporting the printer, place it in the original box with the original packing material. If you don’t have the original packaging, pack the printer with enough cushioning material to absorb any impacts during transportation. Protect against moisture condensation Do not spray on or allow volatile solvents to come in contact with the printer Do not allow the printer to be in contact with rubber or plastic products for an extended period of time Operate the printer at least once every six months Carry the printer with both hands Transport the printer carefully p11_e_000_bookfile.book Page 9 Monday, July 25, 2005 10:47 AM

10 ENGLISH Preparation Printing For Your Reference Introduction What this printer can do Direct Print The printer supports the PictBridge standard for communication between a digital camera and printer. If you connect a PictBridge compatible digital camera to the printer using the USB cable supplied with the digital camera, you can print pictures directly from the digital camera. Variety of prints The printer supports multi prints where multiple copies of the same picture are printed on one sheet, index prints where multiple different pictures are printed on one sheet, date prints where the date and time are included, and edged (bordered)/not edged (borderless) prints. Note Some functions may be limited depending on the digital camera connected. Printing from a computer If you connect a computer to the printer using a commercially available USB cable, you can print pictures stored on the computer. We recommend using OLYMPUS Master or OLYMPUS Master Plus for easy printing and management of your digital pictures. High-quality overcoat printing High-quality overcoat printing ensures long lasting and durable prints. This is especially useful for printing important pictures you wish to treasure for years to come. Printing 50 sheets continuously The supplied paper tray can continuously supply up to 50 sheets of paper to the printer. A single sheet takes about 30 seconds to print (for 3.5" × 5" paper, this excludes the data transmission time from the digital camera or computer). p11_e_000_bookfile.book Page 10 Monday, July 25, 2005 10:47 AM

If printing does not start up again after you and more paper, remove the ribbon cartridge once and then insert it again. Printing will resume automatically. If the print setting [Not Edged] (borderless) is selected, the edges of pictures will be cut off during printing because the width and height ratio with which pictures are taken by the camera is usually 4:3. When taking pictures, make sure the composition sufficiently compensate for this. If the print setting [Edged] (bordered) is selected, the picture size will be smaller but the whole picture will be printed. p11_e_000_bookfile.book Page 25 Monday, July 25, 2005 10:47 AM

32 Troubleshooting Preparation Printing For Your Reference Introduction ENGLISH If paper jams in the printer, the ACCESS indicator and PAPER indicator both blink, and printing stops. Follow the steps below to clear a paper jam in the printer. 1 Turn the printer off. 2 After removing the paper tray, make sure no print paper is bent or curled and that paper is properly placed in the tray. 3 With the paper tray removed, turn the printer on again to automatically eject the paper from the printer. If paper is automatically ejected, go to Step 8. If paper is not automatically ejected, turn the printer off and go to Step 4. 4 Look through the paper tray door opening to see if there is any jammed paper visible at the back. If jammed paper is visible, go to Step 5. If jammed paper is not visible, contact your nearest Olympus service center for repairs. 5 Set the printer on its rear so that the front of the printer is facing up. Insert your finger in the paper dispenser slot located on the bottom and slide the jammed paper towards the paper tray door. If you cannot move the paper with your finger, use tweezers or the like.

39 ENGLISH Preparation Printing For Your Reference Introduction Definition of terms DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) Recording format for automatic printing of digital camera data. Prints can easily be created from a media card at DPOF compatible photo shops or on printers by specifying the desired images, and number of copies. PictBridge A common standard used to connect a digital camera directly to a printer to print images. If the devices are PictBridge compatible, prints can be made using simple digital camera controls regardless of the device manufacturers. Various print options are available, such as automatic printing of DPOF specified images, index print, and image trimming. RGB The three colors comprising light: red (R), green (G) and blue (B). Colors are displayed on televisions and computer monitors using these three colors. YMC The three primary colors: cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y). Colors are printed using these three colors. The range of colors that can be displayed using YMC differs from the range of colors available using RGB. Therefore, some colors for images that are displayed on a monitor cannot be reproduced exactly using a printer and are replaced with similar colors. p11_e_000_bookfile.book Page 39 Monday, July 25, 2005 10:47 AM
