Question about Digital Cameras
I used the printer dock for the first time. Followed instructions exactly. Pushed the print button and it printed but sent the picture out the front where the loader dock is. I tried to get the pic out and then the dock retrieved the pic and pulled up another blank pic film. At this point, the printer jammed with the pic half way out. I tried to pull it out as instructed in the manual but this cannot be done. I don't want to ruin the printer so what do I do now? I have followed all the steps in the Touble shooting manual.
If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.
I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.
To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

You have two options for getting the date printed on your pictures. One is to set the appropriate option in whatever software you're using to print. The other is to have the camera put it there in the image itself. This means that if the date happens to cover something important, you won't be able to get it back.
To set the camera to put the date stamp on every picture, press Menu, use left/right to highlight Setup, then use up/down to access "Date Stamp".

Here is a blog about troubleshooting the printer:
Someone on another blog suggested checking your print settings, to make sure they match the paper size.
Couldn't find an exact "fix", just things to try, so hope this helps.
