What is the Color Video Printer? 


The CVP-MS is a color video printer which stores the pictures played back on a video 
equipment or those broadcast on TV, and then prints the stored images. Basic 
operation is very simple. You can make a basic full-size printout using only the four 
buttons on the unit or the remote commander. Going beyond the basics, you can make 
a variety of printouts by changing the way to store the pictures (MEMORY MODE 
Setting) and the way to print the stored images (PRINT MODE Setting) according to the 
menus on the screen.

Introduction 





On safety Operate the printer on 120 V AC, 60 Hz only. 
Be careful not to set or drop any heavy objects on the power cord, or to damage the cord in any 
way. Never operate this printer with a damaged power cord. 
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the printer and have it checked by 
qualified personnel before operating it any further. 
Never disassemble the printer. 
To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself. 
When the printer is not going to be used for an extended period, disconnect the power cord from 
the wall outlet. 
Do not handie the printer roughly. 
¢ To reduce the risk of electric shock, always unplug the printer from electrical outlet before 
cleaning and servicing the printer. 


| On moisture 

i e If the printer is brought directly from a cold location to warm place or placed in an extremely warm or 
| condensation humid room, moisture may condense inside the unit. In such cases the printer will probably not work 
: properly and may even develop a fault if you persist in using it. If moisture condensation forms, turn 
| off the power and do not use the printer for at least one hour. 


_ Oncleaning 
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft dry cloth, or a soft cloth lightly moistened with a 
mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of solvent, such as alcohol or benzine, which may 
damage the finish. 
On installation 


Avoid placing the unit in a location subject to: 
—vibration 
—high humidity 
—excessive dust 
—direct sunlight 
—extremely high or low temperatures 
Do not use electronic equipment near the unit. The unit will not work properly in electromagnetic 
fields. 
The unit is designed to operate horizontally. Never attempt to operate the printer in a tilted 
position. 
If the unit was placed on its side or with its top panel facing down, make sure to remove the paper 
tray and check that print paper is placed properly before starting operation. 
e Do not place heavy objects on the printer. 
Leave enough room around the printer so that the ventilation holes are not blocked. 
Blocking these holes may cause internal heat build-up. 


Ventilation holes 








Connect the video source 
(camcorder, VCR, or MDP, etc.) 
and the video display (TV or 
monitor) to the printer. Use the 
devices equipped with VIDEO 
input/output connectors. 

(You cannot use the devices 
which have only aerial 
connectors.) 

Connect the necessary devices 
to the printer according to the 
following procedures. 


Notes 

e Turn off the power of the other 
equipment you will connect the 
printer to before making the 
connection. 

¢ Do not connect the AC power 
cord of the printer to the wall 
outlet until all of the other 
connections are completed. 

e For connection, also refer to 
the operating instructions of 
the other equipment you will 
connect the printer to. 

e When using the twin-lead 
cable (flat) to connect the 
video equipment to the aerial, 
noise may be heard if you 
install the video device near 
the printer. Keep it away from 
the printer. 


Connect the printer to the

and the wall outlet. 


S VIDEO connectors and 
VIDEO connectors 

The printer has both S VIDEO 
connectors for separate 
luminance (Y) and 
chrominance (C) signals and 
VIDEO connectors for 
composite NTSC video 
signals. When the video and 
television units that the printer 
will be connected to have both 
types of connectors, connect 
to the S VIDEO connectors, 
using the S video connecting 
cable YC-15V (not supplied). 
You can enjoy printouts with 
higher quality picture. 

lf you connect the S VIDEO 
OUTPUT connector of the 
printer to the VIDEO input 
connector of the video device, 
the printer will output video 
output signals automatically. If 
you connect the VIDEO INPUT 
connector of the printer to the 
S VIDEO output connector of 
the video device, the printer 
will input video input signals 
automatically. 

if you use both the S VIDEO 
and VIDEO INPUT 
connectors of the printer 
simultaneously, the input 
circuit will select the S 
VIDEO input signals 
automatically. 


Even if you have no video 
equipment 

You can print TV broadcast 
pictures if your TV has S 
VIDEO or VIDEO input/output 
connectors. For details, refer 
to “Printing TV Broadcast 
Pictures” on page 19. 


Watching video and TV after 
connecting to the printer 


As long as you leave the supplied AC power cord connected to the 
AC In jack of the printer and the wall outlet, you can enjoy watching 
video and TV as usual, even if the printer itself has been turned off.

Setting Up 





Function of the 
buttons on the 
remote 
commander 


The supplied remote commander 
has the same basic operation 
buttons as the main unit. It also 
has some buttons to control the 
tape transport of Sony video 
equipment, which can be 
selected by the COMMAND 
MODE switch at the rear of the 
commander. For details, refer to 
“Location and Function of Parts 
and Controls” on page 47. 


A lithium battery is already 
installed. If the operating range of 
the commander becomes 
noticeably short, replace the 
battery with a Sony CR2025 
lithium battery. 














Point the head of the remote commander toward 
the remote sensor on the printer. You can 
operate the printer with the remote commander

Notes 

e Keep the remote sensor of the printer away 
from direct sunlight or the strong light of 
lighting equipment. 

e Be careful that there is no obstacle between 
the printer and the remote commander. 


How long is the battery life ? 

In normal operation, the lithium battery will last 
for about one year. 

(Its life span depends on how offen the remote 
commander is used.) 

if the operating range of the commander 
becomes noticeably short, replace the battery 
with a Sony CR2025 lithium battery. Use of 
batteries other than CR2025 may create a risk of 
fire or explosion. 








































Caution on lithium battery 

e Keep the lithium battery and the remote 
commander out of the reach of children. 

e Should the battery be swallowed, consult a 
doctor immediately. 

e Wipe the battery with a dry cloth to assure a 
good contact. 

e Do not hold the battery with metallic tweezers 

as doing so may cause a short circuit. 


WARNING 


Battery may explode if mistreated. 
Do not recharge, disassemble or dispose of in

Confirming and error beeps 
When you press a button on 
the main unit or remote 
commander, a beep sounds to 
show that you have done an 
expected step of the operation. 
If you have done an 
unacceptable step, repeated 
beeps sound to show that the 
printer rejected your operation. 
Repeat the operation carefully, 
referring to the steps shown in 
this manual.

the FIELD/FRAME button to select 
the FIELD A or FIELD B mode. (If 
the stored image is not blurred, 
proceed to step 4.) 

























To change the image stored 
in memory 
Press the SOURCE button. 





Each time you press the FIELD/FRAME button, 
the indication on the screen changes in the order 
of FRAME — FIELD A > FIELD B > FRAME. 

Select the FRAME/FIELD mode, checking which 
mode eliminates the blur most.

The stored image disappears 
and the playback picture 
returns to the screen. When 
the image you want to print 
appears, press the CAPTURE 
button again to store a new 
image. The previous image in 
memory is replaced with the 
new one. 











What blurs the stored image ? 
The stored image is blurred because the motion 
of the image is so fast that the image changes 
while the printer is storing the image in the 
FRAME mode. If you print this image, the picture 
on the printout will also be blurred. To eliminate 
the blur, press the FIELD/FRAME button to 
select the FIELD A or FIELD B mode, checking 
which mode eliminates the blur more. The 
picture quality, however, may become coarse 
when printed in the FIELD mode. When the 
Stored image is not blurred, we recommend you 
to print in the FRAME mode. For details, refer to
