Re: printing problem

You may have a faulty Thermal element, sounds like a cold spot in the middle of the print head is messing up your photo. If this is in warranty or is new get them to replace it

Need driver for sony dpp-fp55 thermal photo printer for mac

I have a terrific Sony dpp fp55 dye sublimation printer that worked great until Sony decided not to update the drivers for Windows 7. This is the second time I have had a Sony product, the last was a laptop Vaio, and Sony stopped keeping up with drivers for new operating systems.

I did make a work around. First I hammered the VAIO until it was flat and the disk drive could not be used to gather any information. With the sony dpp fp55, I did better. I used my desktop computer with Windows 7 professional to pass all the photos that I wanted to print to a memory card on my Toshiba laptop. That was easy. Then I moved the card to my sony dpp fp55 printer and printed my photos from the memory card. Works fine. Not a big convenience. I also decided to take that hammer to my thumb if I ever bought another Sony product with their Sony Corporation plan of obsolescence, by not keeping up with drivers for their products. I know they have the ability but when you call, they just offer you a new printer. No way, baby. I don't like their business philosophy or their hand in my pocket.

My sony dpp-fp55 leave 2/3 of the paper white while printing

They are thinking the cartridges are dirty or the heads. I am thinking it is a setting for the printer or an actual glitch in the printing program. If you have successfully printed on this printer before, then very carefully go through the settings, looking for print margins settings specifically. This sounds simple but you might want to make sure your paper trays are adjusted correctly.

Cannot find the driver for mac for sony DPP-FP60

Export your photo from iphoto to a usb stick. Then stick that into the printer´s usb port. Use the menu of the printer to make any last corrections (size, brightness, borders etc). Works with both RAW and JPEG. Good luck. /Anders

Sony Printer DPP-fp90

You may use your memory stick option to print. I means you shall copy your pictures to a memory stick card. Insert in into the printer. And print directly without your MAC. I use Sony DPP-FP70. It works.

These are following cases for this symptom.

If the access indicator flashes in green:

The data size of the image is large and it takes longer to process it for printing. Printing will start as soon as the data processing finishes.

If the paper error indicator flashes on the LCD:

The paper is jammed. Turn off the printer and turn it on again, take out the paper tray, and then remove the jammed paper from the paper outlet. If you cannot remove the jammed paper, consult with your Sony dealer or service facility.

If no indicator is lit or flashing:

The thermal head may be overheated. Leave the printer until the head cools down and the printer resumes printing.
