Question about Sony UP DR100 Thermal Photo Printer
Problem: The Printer does not detect the home position of the cutter during initialization.
Either there is a scrap piece of paper obstructing the path of the carriage that houses the cutter blade or there has been an impact on the lower side of the printer causing a bend in the metal that holds the home switch. This switch will trigger a sensor telling the printer that the cutter has reached the home position(right side)
Solution:Remove the paper scrap or Remove the door panel and check for damage on the right side of the cutter blade path and bend the metal piece to realign the switch so that the plastic carriage makes contact when reaching the right side.

This may well be a failure of the cutter switch sensor to reset. This worked for me.
Turn Off the Printer.
Remove both side panels and the plastic panel on the INSIDE of the DOOR on the right hand side. Then close the door and remove the plastic panel UNDER the door. This is held in place by two screws.
You will see a white gear on the bottom right hand side of the door. It is on the underside of the door. Turn this gear untill you can see the cutter move smoothly across the bottm of the door and return to the right side of the door. Listen for a click. This is the switch resetting. Close the door and power up the printer if you still get an error code 0008 or 0007 repeat the resetting process by turning the gear. BE SURE TO TURN OFF THE PRINTER!!
