Printing Photographs from a Wireless Communication Device

Printing via Infrared Communication

You can print photos stored your mobile phone via infrared communication. When printing through infrared communication, also refer to your mobile phone's instruction manual.

1. Prepare for printing.

  1. Turn on the machine
  2. Load paper.
  3. Make sure that the proper paper source is selected.

2. Set the Page Size, Media Type, and Layout.

3. Start Infrared Communication.

  1. Place the mobile phone so that its infrared port (A) comes face to face to that of the machine (B) at a distance of less than approximately 8 inches / 20 cm (C).

    Note: The effective angle of the IrDA Port of the machine is about 10° up, left, or right from the central axis (D). The effective range of communication with the machine depends on the mobile phone you are using. For details, refer to your mobile phone's instruction manual.

  2. Select the photo to print and send the data to the machine using the infrared communication function of the mobile phone. Printing will start after receiving all data.

    Note :

    • For the procedure to print from your mobile phone, refer to your mobile phone's instruction manual.
    • Do not place any obstacle between the infrared ports of the machine and mobile phone, as it will block data transmission.
    • During printing, be careful not to interrupt infrared communication with the machine. If it is interrupted, send the data from the mobile phone again.
    • Depending on your device, the fine print quality option may not be available due to the restriction on the infrared transfer capacity.
    • We recommend printing on sticker or credit card-sized paper when the print quality on other types of paper is not fine.

About transmittable data

  • Due to security settings on the mobile phone, downloaded content or photos downloaded from an URL attached to an E-mail cannot be printed.
  • Video files cannot be printed.
  • Depending on the size of a photo, it may take a while for this machine to start printing after starting infrared communication.
  • Depending on your device, data stored in a memory card may not be printed.
  • Printed quality and orientation (portrait or landscape) is determined automatically according to the shot photo size.
  • Depending on the photo size shot on the mobile phone, the edges of the image may be cut off when performing borderless printing; the margin size may change when printing with borders.
  • If the photo file is over 1.8 MB in size, it may not be possible to send the file.
