the plug area clean using a dry cloth. Check the plug periodically to make sure it is clean .
II
• Usage Location
Do not place the devices on an unstable or tilted table or desk, as there is risk that the
devices may fal! and cause injury.
11
~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 falloff 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.

Continued use of a damaged cable poses risk of fire or equipment failure. Leave about 10 cm
(4 in.) of clearance around the devices to ensure adequate ventilation.
---------
Do not pull on the AC cable. Doing so may damage the cable. Continued use of a damaged
cable poses risk of fire or electric shock. Always hold the cable by the plug area when
unplugging it.
12
• 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.
II
13
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 10 cm (4 in.) of clearance around the printer. 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.
• 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.
When the printer is not in use, please remove the battery pack (CP-300 only).
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.
o 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 are blocked or if ventilation is inadequate.
o 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 vinyl 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.
14
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.
II Proper Handling of Ink Cassettes
Please use only the ink cassettes specified for use by Canon.
D~-not open the i~k cass;tte cover while printing is in-p~ro-g-r-e-ss-,-a-n-d-d-o--n-o-t-p-u-II-t-he
ink cassette out. These actions may damage the printer.
------- -
--------
II
--------~-----
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.
II 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.
-------------
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.
15
• 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, and do not scratch on the paper
surface with a hard object. Keep the paper surface away from dust, water droplets, etc.
Do not write on the paper before printing. Writing on paper before printing on it may result
in malfunction.
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 back of 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.
16
• 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 its original package, and
store the package horizontally.
-Others
II
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.
The battery pack can be charged while installed on the printer (CP-300 only), using the
printer.
• Charge the battery pack using the compact power adapter supplied with the printer.
• The battery pack can also be charged using the separately sold the Battery/Charge
Adapter Kit.
When using the battery pack (Included with the CP-300 in some regions or sold
separately), if the battery status is low, the finished print may not be ejected into the
print output receptacle completely. If this happens, please pull out the paper.

adapter.
Remove the battery cover and install the battery pack.
• Refer to step 2 and 3 of the Charging the Battery Pack in the Printer section.
~ p. 29
31
• When the battery pack is used to power the printer, the printer will automatically
turn off if it is idle for 5 minutes or more.
• This is a lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to completely use or
discharge it before recharging. It can be charged at any charge state.
• It takes approximately 150 minutes to bring a fully discharged battery pack to a full
charge state (based on standard Canon testing criteria).
• Charge it within a temperature range of 5 to 40°C (41 to 104°F).
• The charge adapter may emit noises while charging. This is not a malfunction.
• Do not charge the battery pack for more than 24 continuous hours to avoid
performance loss.
• When the printer is not in use, remove the battery pack, replace its terminal cover
and store it in a cool place (30°C/86°F or less).Charge it before using it again.
• Even charged battery packs,continue to discharge naturally. You are advised to
charge the battery on the day of use, or one day before, to ensure a full charge.
• Since storing a fully charged battery pack for long periods of time (about 1 year)
can shorten its lifecycle or affect performance, you are recommended to discharge
the battery pack fully in the printer before storing it in a cool place (30°C/86°F or
less). If you do not use the battery pack for long periods of time, charge it fully and
discharge it fully in the printer at least once a year before returning it to storage.
• The printer consumes the battery charge when the power is on even when a
function is not being used. To conserve the battery charge, be particularly attentive
in turning the power off.
• Although the battery pack's maximum operating range is 5 to 40°C (41 to 104°F),
the optimal range is 10 to 30°C (50 to 86°F). At cold temperatures, such as those
experienced on ski hills, performance will temporarily decline, reducing the usable
time.
• If the usable time of a battery pack diminishes substantially even when fully
charged, it should be replaced.
• Remove the battery pack when the printer is not in use. The battery pack
continues to discharge a small amount when left in the printer or charge adapter
even with the power turned off. This shortens the battery life.

• Battery Status
If battery status is running down while the printer is connected to the camera, the
camera's LCD monitor may display the following message.
Error Message

Solution
The battery pack's power is too low to operate the
printer.
Switch the battery pack for a fully charged one or

* The above data may vary according to the printing environment and the image to be printed.
* At low temperatures, the battery pack performance may diminish and the low battery icon
may appear very rapidly. In these circumstances, the performance can be improved by
warming the battery pack in a pocket before use.

Since the CP-300/CP-200 printers support the PictBridge* standard, you can
connect PictBridge compliant non-Canon digital cameras to easily print high
image quality photos.
* PictBridge: PictBridge is an industry standard for direct printing that allows you to print
images without using a computer by directly connecting a digital camera or digital camcorder
(hereafter "camera") to a printer, regardless of their brands and models.
• 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.
II
• 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. 26) and insert the other end in the camera's
terminal. (For details, refer to the camera's user guide)
• The printer's indicator blinks green several times once the printer and camera are correctly
connected. The indicator lights steadily green once it is ready to print.
• If a problem occurs during a connection or during printing, the printer's indicator 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.
o Functions Available with Non-Canon Cameras
• Printing different selected images on an 8-label sheet. *
* You can use this function if it is supported by your camera.
o Functions Not Available with Non-Canon Cameras
• Printing images showing the date.
• Printing images with DPOF print settings.
• 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 38 is a printing speed obtained
when printing with a Canon camera.)

U.S.A., Inc. and Canon Canada Inc. will be referred to collectively herein as "Canon."
The Product, when delivered to you in new condition in its original container, is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one (1)
year from the date of original purchase. Defective parts or a defective Product returned to Canon, or an Authorized Service Center, and proven to be defective upon inspection, will be repaired
with new or comparable rebuilt parts or exchanged for a refurbished Product as determined by Canon or the Authorized Service Center. Warranty replacement shall not extend the original
warranty period. This warranty does not cover any accessories, nor does it cover any consumables, such as paper or ink cartridges, as to which there shall be no warranty or replacement.
This limited warranty shall only apply if the Product is used in conjunction with compatible computers, peripheral equipment and software, as to which items Canon shall have no responsibility.
Non-Canon brand equipment and software that may be distributed with the Product are sold "as is" and without warranty of any kind by Canon, including any implied warranty or
condition regarding merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and all such warranties and conditions are disclaimed. The sole warranty, if any, with respect to such nonCanon brand items is given by the manufacturer or producer thereof.
This limited warranty covers all defects encountered in normal use of the Product and does not apply in the following cases:
(a) Loss of or damage to the Product due to abuse, neglect, mishandling, improper packaging by you, alteration, accident, electrical current fluctuations, improper use, failure to following
operating maintenance or environmental conditions prescribed in Canon's user's manual or other documentation, or services performed by someone other than Canon or its Authorized
Service Center. Without limiting the foregoing, water damage, sand/corrosion damage, battery leakage, dropping the printer, scratches, and abrasions will be presumed to have resulted
from misuse, abuse or failure to operate the Product as set forth in the operating instructions.
(b) Use of parts or supplies (other than those sold by Canon) that cause damage to the Product or cause abnormally frequent service calls or service problems.
(c) Use of supplies or parts (other than those distributed by Canon).

AFTER THE APPLICABLE PERIOD OF THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY STATED ABOVE, AND NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY, GUARANTY OR CONDITION, EXCEPT AS
MENTIONED ABOVE, GIVEN BY ANY PERSON OR ENTITY WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT SHALL BIND CANON, OR ITS AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER. (SOME STATES AND
PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.) CANON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE
FOR LOSS OF REVENUES OR PROFITS, INCONVENIENCE, EXPENSE FOR SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT OR SERVICE, STORAGE CHARGES, LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA, OR
ANY OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE USE, MISUSE, OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL
THEORY ON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED, AND EVEN IF CANON, OR ITS AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOR
SHALL RECOVERY OF ANY KIND AGAINST CANON, OR ITS AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER, BE GREATER IN AMOUNT THAN THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT
CAUSING THE ALLEGED DAMAGE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK AND LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY TO YOU AND YOUR
PROPERTY AND TO OTHERS AND THEIR PROPERTY ARISING OUT OF THE POSSESSION, USE, MISUSE, OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT SOLD BY CANON NOT CAUSED

LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.) THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL NOT

32
Connecting the Printer to Your
Computer
■ Notes about connection
• Using the USB cable, be sure to connect the printer directly to your computer. If
you connect it via a USB hub, the printer may not function properly.
• Do not use the printer together with other USB devices (except a USB mouse or
keyboard); otherwise the printer may not function properly. If this happens,
disconnect the other USB devices from your computer and then reconnect the
printer.
• Do not connect two or more direct print compatible printers (all CP series
printers) to the same computer; otherwise the printers may not function properly.
• When connecting the printer to your computer, we recommend that you connect
it to the same USB port used when you installed the printer driver. If you connect
the printer to a different USB port, Windows may create a copy of the printer
driver. This depends on your Windows version and the printer driver, and does
not affect the operation of the printer.
To delete a copy of the printer driver, proceed as follows:
1. Disconnect the USB cable from your computer.
2. Delete the copy of the printer driver as follows. (Do not use the uninstaller.)
(1) For Windows 98/Me/2000, click the [Start] button and select [Settings],
and [Printers].
For Windows XP, click the [Start] button and select [Control Panel],
[Printers and Other Hardware], and [Printers and Faxes].
(2) Right-click the copy of the printer driver and then select [Delete] on the
shortcut menu.
3. Restart your computer. Connect the printer to the USB port used when you
installed the printer driver.
Do not put your computer into the standby mode while the printer is
connected to a USB port.
If you accidentally do so, do not disconnect the USB cable from your
computer while it is in the standby mode; instead, leaving the USB cable
connected, first return your computer to its normal mode. If you remove the
USB cable while your computer is in the standby mode, your computer may
not be able to return to its normal mode. For details on your computer’s
standby mode, refer to the documentation provided with your computer.
33
1
Connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the printer,
and the other end to a USB port on your computer.
• There is no need to turn off the printer or your computer.
• When connecting the printer to your computer, make sure the connectors on
the ends of the USB cable match the terminals on the printer and your
computer.
• For the location and direction of your computer’s USB port, refer to the
documentation provided with your computer.

Printing
This section describes how to use PhotoRecord to print images displayed in
ZoomBrowser EX. ZoomBrowser EX and PhotoRecord are applications
included on the Canon CP Printer Solution Disk. These applications make it
easy to print.
• Screen shots from Windows XP are used for illustration, but the procedure is the
same with Windows 98/Me/2000.
• The screens in this example appear when the CP-300 is connected, but the same
operations are applicable to the CP-200.
Before printing, verify that the printer is on (the indicator on the printer is green),
and that the printer is properly connected to your computer with a USB cable.
• Printers and computer displays use different color reproduction methods,
and lighting conditions and display settings affect the appearance of
colors on your computer’s display. Therefore, the colors in prints may
differ from what you see on the screen. This is not a printer problem.
• Do not change the spool settings. The status monitor may not function
correctly.
For information on how to install ZoomBrowser EX and PhotoRecord, see
Installing the Software from the CP Printer Solution Disk (➡ p.8).

Printing
This section describes how to use ImageBrowser to print images with the
printer.
ImageBrowser is an application included on the Canon CP Printer Solution
Disk. This application makes it easy to print.
Before printing, verify that the printer is on (the indicator on the printer is green),
and that the printer is properly connected to your computer with a USB cable.
Printers and computer displays use different color reproduction methods,
and lighting conditions and display settings affect the appearance of colors
on your computer’s display. Therefore, the colors in prints may differ from
what you see on the screen. This is not a printer malfunction.
For information on how to install ImageBrowser, see Installing the Software
from the CP Printer Solution Disk (➡ p.8).
The screen examples and descriptions given in this section are for
the CP-300. Operate the CP-200 in the same way.
