Always ensure that the devices are operated correctly. • The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to instruct you in the safe and correct operation of the devices to prevent injuries or damage to yourself and other persons. • “Devices” refers to the “printer” or “compact power adapter” throughout this guide. WARNINGS Do not play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not support data CD-ROMs. Playing the CD-ROM(s) in an audio CD player (music player) could damage the speakers. It is also possible to suffer from hearing loss from listening with headphones to the loud sounds of a CD-ROM played on a music CD player. Devices If the devices emit smoke or a burning odor, or show other signs of significant malfunction, immediately unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Continued operation under these conditions poses risk of fire or electric shock. Be sure that smoke or burning odor subsides, and then contact your dealer or the nearest Canon Customer Support help desk. If the devices are dropped or the casing becomes damaged, unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Continued operation poses risk of fire or electric shock. Contact your dealer or the nearest canon Customer Support help desk. Never rest small metallic objects or liquid containers on top of the devices. If liquid splashes onto the devices, wipe the devices dry using a soft absorbent cloth. If liquid spills into the devices or an object falls into the devices, immediately unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Continued operation poses risk of fire or electric shock. Contact your dealer or the nearest Canon Customer Support help desk. Do not use flammable solvents such as alcohol, benzene, or paint thinner to clean the devices. Use of such solvents poses a fire risk. Do not drop or insert metallic or combustible objects into the devices. Entry of foreign objects into the devices may result in fire, electric shock, or equipment failure. Store the devices out of the reach of children. Do not disassemble or modify the devices. The devices contain high-voltage components, and there is risk of electric shock. If your devices need internal adjustments or repair, contact your dealer or a Canon Customer Support help desk. Do not touch metal parts of the devices or the power plug during thunderstorms. Lightning strikes may produce lethal voltages within the devices. Keep clear of the devices while thunderstorms are in progress. 13 Power Do not exceed the cable and power outlet ratings when operating this product. Do not operate this product outside of the specified voltage rating. Connecting too many devices to the same outlet may result in fire. Check that the voltage of the outlet is compatible with the devices before plugging them in. If the power cord becomes damaged (if internal wiring is exposed, etc.), immediately unplug it from the power outlet. Continued use poses risk of fire or electric shock. Do not plug in or unplug the power cord while your hands are wet, as this may result in electric shock. When unplugging the power cord, hold it firmly at the plug area. Do not pull directly on the cord, as this may damage or expose the cord’s internal wiring, resulting in risk of fire or electric shock. Be sure that the power cord is plugged all the way in. A loose connection may result in heat buildup, fire, or electric shock. Do not damage, modify, or rest heavy objects on the power cord. Damage to the cord may result in the exposure of live wires, fire, or electric shock. Keep the power cord free of dust. The presence of dust or metallic debris on the plug poses risk of fire or electric shock. If the plug area is not clean, unplug the power cord and then wipe the plug area clean using a dry cloth. Check the plug periodically to make sure it is clean. Usage Location Do not place the devices on an unstable or tilted table or desk, as there is risk that the devices may fall and cause injury. 14 CAUTIONS Devices Do not block the air vents on the printer. Blocking the vents may cause the inside of the printer to overheat, resulting in damage to internal components and risk of equipment failure or fire. Use the devices in a well-ventilated area. Do not rest heavy objects on the devices. Objects may fall off the devices and cause injury. Weight placed on the devices may deform the casing, resulting in damage to internal parts and posing risk of fire. Unplug the devices when you are not using them. If the devices remain plugged in, there is risk that accidental contact with the device’s internal parts may cause electric shock. Leaving the devices plugged in during prolonged periods of non-use poses risk of fire. Do not remove the paper cassette from the printer while printing is in progress. Paper moves back and forth in the cassette four times during printing. Placing your hand in the way of moving paper may result in injury. Wait for printing to finish completely before removing the cassette. Never place your hand into the paper cassette slot. Do not reach into internal parts of the devices except as specified in the operating instructions. Reaching into inappropriate parts of the devices may cause your hand to become caught or injured. Power Do not move the devices while they are plugged in. Doing so may damage the power cord. Continued use of a damaged power cord poses risk of fire or electric shock. Do not excessively bend or twist the power cord. Doing so may damage the cord. Continued use of a damaged cable poses risk of fire or equipment failure. Leave about 15 cm (6 in.) of clearance at the front and back of the devices and 10 cm (4 in.) of clearance on both sides to ensure adequate ventilation. Do not pull on the power cord. Doing so may damage the power cord. Continued use of a damaged cord poses risk of fire or electric shock. Always hold the cord by the plug area when unplugging it. 15 Usage Location Do not use the devices in locations that are smoky, humid, dusty, or subject to strong vibration. Entry of water or dust into the devices, or internal damage caused by strong vibration, may pose risk of fire or electric shock. Have the devices checked approximately once a year (contact your dealer), preferably before the onset of your area’s humid season. Do not leave the devices exposed to high temperatures. Do not leave in direct sunlight, or close to heating equipment, or in a car with windows closed on a hot day. High temperatures may cause deformation of the devices and pose risk of fire. Do not use the devices near an open flame. Sheets ejected from the printer (onto the top of the paper cassette) may fall into the flame, resulting in fire. Do not use the devices close to TV sets or AM radios. Devices’ operation may adversely affect TV and radio reception. 16 Proper Usage and Handling Usage Location Do not use near strong magnets or near devices that produce strong electromagnetic fields. Electromagnetic radiation from devices such as TVs and game machines, and strong magnetic fields from devices such as speakers and large motors, may cause distortion in printed images. Use in a well-ventilated, level area. Leave about 15 cm (6 in.) of clearance at the front and back of the devices and 10 cm (4 in.) of clearance on both sides. Be sure to leave clearance around the paper-handling slot (at the rear) so that paper has sufficient room to jut out from the slot during printing. Place the printer so that the air vents on the back will not be blocked. If the air vents blocked, the printer interior could heat up, causing the printer to temporarily stop. Handling Precautions Please avoid turning the printer’s power on and off needlessly as the printer initialization consumes ink: There may not be enough ink left for the allotted sheets in the set. Unplug the printer when you are not using it. But please note that you should plug in and run the printer at least once every six months to ensure that it remains functional. Before transporting the printer, remove the paper and ink cassettes and close the paper cassette cover and the ink cassette cover. If dirt or foreign objects enter the printer, print quality may deteriorate. Pack the printer into an appropriate case for transport. If a case is not available, wrap it with cloth or other protective material to protect against scratches. Never use volatile compounds or insecticides on the printer, and do not allow rubber or vinyl material to remain in prolonged contact with the printer. These materials may cause deformation of the printer’s casing. Overheating If the printer overheats, it will temporarily stop operating. This does not mean that the printer has malfunctioned. The printer will resume normal printing as soon as it cools down. Temporary stoppages are most likely to occur in the following cases: • When printing continuously. • If the room is unusually warm. • If the air vents on the back of the printer are blocked or if ventilation is inadequate. 17 To Prevent Damage from Condensation Condensation may form in the printer if you suddenly move it from a cold location to a warm location. To prevent damage that might be caused by condensation, place the printer in a sealed plastic bag prior to moving it, and allow it to reach room temperature before using it. Stop using the printer immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may damage the equipment. Wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use. Cleaning the Printer Never use benzene, paint thinner, or other volatile solvents to clean the printer. Volatile solvents may cause deformation or peeling of the printer’s casing. To clean the printer, wipe it with a soft dry cloth. If stronger cleaning is required, wipe first with a cloth moistened with a dilute neutral solvent, then wipe again with a soft dry cloth. If you use a chemical cleaning cloth, read the instructions that come with it and observe all indicated precautions. Keep the air vents clean and free of dust. Clean the vents as necessary. Dust that enters the printer through the vents may land on the ink sheet, resulting in poor print quality and possibly leading to printer breakdown. If the ink sheet becomes dusty, remove the ink cassette and replace it with a new one. Proper Handling of Ink Cassettes Please use only the ink cassettes specified for use by Canon. Do not open the ink cassette cover while printing is in progress, and do not pull the ink cassette out. These actions may damage the printer. Do not touch or pull on the ink sheet. Do not handle the ink cassettes with wet or sweaty hands. Allow ink cassettes to reach room temperature before installing and using them. Condensation may form if you suddenly move ink cassettes from a cold location to a warm location. If there is risk of condensation, leave the cassette in its packaging until it reaches room temperature, and wipe away any moisture before loading it. If you are not planning to use the printer for a while, remove and store the ink cassette. 18 Proper Handling of Paper Cassettes Do not apply excessive force to the paper cassette. Force or impact on the cassette may result in paper jams or equipment damage. Do not bend or deform the spring located at the rear of the middle cover of the paper cassette. Spring Do not place any foreign objects in the print output receptacle (on the top of the paper cassette). This area is for paper only. If you are not planning to use the printer for a while, remove the paper cassette, close the paper cassette’s top cover and store the paper cassette. Also remove the paper from the paper cassette and store it horizontally. Proper Handling of Paper Please use only the paper types specified for use by Canon. Paper must be printed on the glossy side (the side without any printed markings). Always load paper into the cassette with the glossy side up. Loading the paper the wrong way may result in poor print quality, and in some cases may cause damage to the printer. Do not tear or bend the paper’s perforated edges before printing. Tearing the paper’s perforated edges will cause the ink sheet to wind up automatically and waste one print’s worth of ink. If this happens, there will not be enough ink left to print all the paper sheets included in the kit. Do not use label sheets on which labels are partially peeled off. Do not touch the print side of the paper with your fingers. Always hold the paper along the edges (outside the perforated border). WRONG RIGHT Be sure that hands are dry before touching the paper. Sharp objects will scratch the paper surface. Keep the paper surface free from fingerprints, dust, water droplets, etc. Do not write on the paper before printing. Writing on paper before printing on it may result in malfunction. 19 Do not touch paper while it is being printed. During printing, the sheet repeatedly moves back and forth along the top of the paper cassette and in and out through the paper-handling slot. Please do not touch the sheet during this process. Do not allow too many prints to accumulate in the print output receptacle. Do not allow more than 9 sheets to accumulate in the print output receptacle. You may write on the paper with an oil-based pen, but to avoid smudging please allow ink time to dry before touching it. Allow the paper to reach room temperature before installing and using it. Condensation may form if you suddenly move the paper from a cold location to a warm location. If there is risk of condensation, leave the paper in its packaging until it reaches room temperature, and wipe away any moisture before loading it. Please avoid the following actions as they may result in color change, color fading or color bleeding. • Sticking any type of adhesive tape onto the print surface. • Allowing print surfaces to come into contact with vinyl materials. • Applying alcohol or other volatile solvents to the print surface. • Leaving print surfaces tightly pressed against any other surfaces or objects for prolonged periods. Paper Storage If you wish to mount prints into an album, select an album with nylon-based sleeves, or with propylene or cellophane sleeves. Other types of sleeves may cause color loss or color bleeding. Color change may occur over time in accordance with conditions of storage. Canon assumes no liability for color changes. To avoid print quality deterioration, do not store your prints in the following types of locations. • Locations that reach temperatures above 40 °C (104 °F) • Humid or dusty locations • Locations exposed to direct sunlight. Remove unused paper from the paper cassette, return it to the bag and then into its original package. Store the package horizontally. Others When opening a color ink/paper set (full-sized label set, label set), check the contents. If something seems to be missing or appears to be damaged, contact the dealer for assistance. 20 Components Guide Compact Photo Printer SELPHY CP400 Front View Display Window* Indicates the printer’s status.

Before Using the Printer Please read carefully the user guide that came with your camera and make sure that: • The camera is PictBridge compliant. • You are using the USB cable for the camera/computer connection to connect the printer to the camera. (This cable may be included with the camera) • You set the print settings with the camera. For details, refer to the camera’s user guide. Connecting the Camera Insert one end of the USB cable used for the camera/computer connection in the printer’s direct print port (see p. 29) and insert the other end in the camera’s terminal. (For details, refer to the camera’s user guide) • The printer’s display window blinks blue several times once the printer and camera are correctly connected. The display window lights steadily blue once it is ready to print. • If a problem occurs during a connection or during printing, the printer’s display window lights or blinks red. If this happens, the error message that appears on the camera’s LCD monitor may differ according to your camera model. Printing Functions When printing with non-Canon cameras, the following items differ from Canoncamera printing operations. Functions Available with Non-Canon Cameras • This option allows you to print the specified number of multiple images on a single sheet of paper. • This option allows you to fix images at a size smaller than the paper they will be printed on, allowing you to write in the resulting blank area. • Printing different selected images on an 8-label sheet. • If you connect a camera which has an automatic image enhancement function to the printer, the image is automatically adjusted for even more beautiful prints. (With Canon Cameras, the image is adjusted without using this function.) You can use these options if they are supported by your camera. 57 Functions Not Available with Non-Canon Cameras • Printing indexes with the file name. • Printing speed may differ according to your camera model and the image’s number of recorded pixels. (The value written on page 37 is a printing speed obtained when printing with a Canon camera.) 58 Disclaimer • While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this guide is accurate and complete, no liability can be accepted for any errors or omissions.
