Why do my prints sometimes show small scratches on the output?

Thin surface line scratches on your prints are usually caused by dirt or dust on the printhead. Turn off the printer and allow the print head to cool for a few minutes. Then open the front cover. The print head is the orange and black strip on the back of the printer cover. Use an anti-static lint free cloth with a drop of alcohol on it to clean off any debris that may be present on the printer's thermal head.

What is "DPOF" and how does it work?

DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Form. It is a format for digital printing using removable media. The format specifies which frames are to be printed, the number of prints, print size, index print, date and time, title and text entered, trimming, rotation and user information. DPOF creates a file, independent from the image files, named Autprint.mrk on a memory medium. DPOF compatible home printers and photo finishing print systems would automatically print the digital images based on the DPOF file information on the media.

The P-440 is compatible with DPOF specifications. Image selection, quantity, trimming, and date/time imprint can be designated. When an xD-Picture Card or PC card is inserted into the printer, DPOF information is read from the media and image selection is performed automatically. You also have an option to cancel DPOF information.
