GETTING READY FOR USE
Charge the SMILE
Before using the camera, connect it to the charger by plugging the micro USB cable into the designated micro USB charging port on the bottom and allow it to fully charge. Always use the original charger that was provided to ensure proper charging If the red indicator LED light is flashing, this means that the battery is low and you should plug the camera in for it to recharge. While the camera is charging, the indicator LED will be a solid red light. Once the process has been completed, the indicator LED will change to a solid green light.
Load the Paper
Load your ZINK® paper into the camera: Follow the steps below to quickly and easily get your new camera loaded with ZINK® sticky-back paper so you can start printing photos!
- Open the paper tray in the back by pressing down on the latch and pulling it toward you.
- Place the blue calibration sheet in the tray with the barcode facing down. Place the other plain sheets on top, with the glossy side facing you. Try to avoid touching the glossy side to prevent getting fingerprints on the paper.
- When you print your first photo after loading the ZINK® paper, the blue calibration sheet will be slowly ejected from the printing slot.

To turn the camera off, simply slide the panel back toward the center.
Insert a MicroSD™ Card
The camera has limited internal memory and can only store three photos at a time: a microSD™ card is necessary if you wish to edit and save more than three photos to print out later. The SMILE can perform without a microSD™ card, but using one is strongly recommended
