Getting Started
Preparations for printing images. The Postcard size Color Ink Cassette/Paper Set (separately sold)
(p. 4) will be used as an example.
Preparing the color ink cassette
Check the color ink cassette
 Check that the paper size and the size shown on
the color ink cassette (Card Size, Postcard Size
etc.) match.
 Check that the ink sheet is taut with no slack. If
the ink sheet is slack, push and turn the sprocket
as shown in the illustration.
Ink sheet
Y
P
O
Do not touch or pull on the ink sheet. Do not touch the color ink cassette with wet or sweaty hands.
You may not be able to print if the ink sheet is damaged, dirty or wet.
Preparing the Paper Cassette
1
2
Check the paper size.
C
 Check that the prepared color ink cassette and
the size shown on the paper cassette (Card
Size, Postcard Size etc.) match.
Open the lid.
 There are two steps to open the lid. Open the
outer lid À first, then open the inner lid Á.
 For Wide size paper cassette (sold separately),
open the outer lid first, then slide the inner lid in
the direction of the
arrow to open it.
Set the paper.
3
ShinShiny side
 Set the paper into the paper cassette that you
prepared in Step 1.
 You can place up to 18 sheets in the paper
cassette (up to 12 for Wide size). Inserting 19
or more sheets (13 or more for Wide size) may
damage the printer or cause malfunction.
 Hold the paper stack as shown in the illustration,
with the shiny side facing up. Do not touch the
print side (shiny side) of the paper with your
fingers. Doing so may prevent you from making
clean prints.
 When a protective sheet is present, remove it
and only set the paper stack into the cassette.
Y
P
O
 When making postcard size prints that have a
section for pasting a stamp, insert the paper so
that the stamp section is facing the inner lid (as
shown in the illustration).
4
C
Close the lid.
 Close the inner lid until it clicks into place.
Leave the outer lid open during printing.
 For Wide size paper cassette (sold separately),
close the inner lid first, then slide the inner lid
until it clicks to the opposite direction of the
arrow.
 Always use the paper specific to SELPHY CP series printers included in the genuine Canon
brand Color Ink Cassette/Paper Sets. Use only dedicated paper. Regular printing paper, regular
postcards, or paper specified for use in SELPHY ES series printers cannot be used.
 Never do the following, as it may lead to failure or cause the printer to malfunction:
- mistakenly reversing the paper (the shiny side is the print side)
- bending or separating the paper at the perforations
- using label sheets that have begun to peel or label sheets with portions peeled back
- writing on a sheet before printing
- printing on already printed paper
- reusing a spent color ink cassette
 Do not touch the springs of the paper cassette.
If the springs are bent or deformed, paper will not feed correctly into SELPHY.
 Do not touch the print surface (shiny side), scratch it or touch
the paper with wet hands. Prints will not be desirable if the print
surface becomes dirty or wet.

Cleaning Up After Printing
After you finish printing, follow the steps below for cleaning and storing SELPHY.

 Unplug the power cord from the power outlet and disconnect the adapter plug from SELPHY.
 If the compact power adapter is hot, wait until it has cooled down before you store it.
 Remove the memory card and paper cassette and close the paper cassette compartment cover.
Keep the remaining paper inside the cassette and store the paper cassette so that it is protected
from dust and light. Also, do not unpack paper before it is used, and keep it in a dark place.
 Keep the color ink cassette inside SELPHY. If you store the color ink cassette outside SELPHY, put
it in a bag so that dust does not stick to the sheet.
 Store SELPHY flat so that dust does not enter.
If dust enters SELPHY and sticks to the paper or color ink, print quality deteriorates.
Y
P
O
Storing the Printed Photos
 When both sides of a print have perforations, you can remove the edges by bending them.
 Use an oil-based pen to write on prints.
 Avoid storing photos in places with high temperatures (40°C/104°F or higher), places with high
humidity or dust, or places subject to direct sunlight.
 Avoid actions that may result in color change, color fading or color bleeding, such as the following:
Sticking any type of adhesive tape on a print surface, allowing print surfaces to come into contact
with vinyl or plastic, applying alcohol or other volatile solvents to a print surface, leaving print
surfaces tightly pressed against other surfaces or objects for prolonged periods.
 If you wish to mount prints in an album, select an album with photo covers made of nylon,
polypropylene or cellophane.
C
Color may change over time or depending on storage conditions. Canon assumes no liability for
color changes.

Printing Problems
Y
P
O
 Cannot Print
• Make sure that the color ink cassette and paper cassettes are correctly inserted. (p. 11)
• When the ink is spent replace the color ink cassette with a new one. When the paper is spent, refill
the paper cassette with new paper. (p. 15)
• Are you using the correct combination of paper, paper cassette and color ink cassette? (p. 9)
• Is SELPHY connected to more than one device at once? Do not connect simultaneously to a
camera, memory card or computer.
• Is the ink sheet slack? (p. 9)
• Make sure that you are using the dedicated paper. (p. 10)
• Depending on the room temperature SELPHY may overheat and temporarily stop operating.
This is not a malfunction. Wait until the temperature drops and SELPHY resumes. If SELPHY is
connected to a computer, a message will appear on the computer screen. Do not cancel the print.
Wait until printing resumes.
C
Cannot print from memory card, image does not display
• Is the memory card inserted all the way into the slot with the label facing upward? (pp. 13, 14)
• Make sure you are using a supported image type. (p. 13)
• Have you inserted the memory card directly into the card slot without first inserting it into an
adapter? (p. 13)
Printing from Cameras
• Is SELPHY connected to the camera correctly? (p. 26)
• Confirm that your camera supports PictBridge. (p. 26)
Printing from Computers
• Did you install the printer driver according to the correct procedures? (p. 22)
• Is SELPHY connected directly to a port on the computer with the USB cable?

DPOF settings.
31
Printing from mobile phones
• When using Bluetooth, the date will not be printed.
Printing from Cameras
• Confirm that the date setting in your camera is set to [On]. However, if the setting is [Default], the
date imprint settings of SELPHY will be used.
 Cannot Make Clean Prints
• Is the ink sheet or paper dusty?
• Is dust lodged within SELPHY? (p. 33)
• Has condensation formed within SELPHY? (p. 33)
• Is SELPHY placed near a device with a strong electromagnetic or magnetic field? (p. 8)
 Colors on the Computer Display and the Print are Different
• Color generation methods are different with computer screens and prints. Moreover, the variance
may be attributable to the environment in which the screen is viewed (color and strength of the
light), or to the screen’s color adjustment settings.
Y
P
O
 After using the computer to cancel a print in progress, an image that had already been
printed was printed again when printing resumed.
• When you restart printing on a Macintosh computer after canceling, an already printed image may
print again when printing resumes.
Paper Problems
 Paper Will Not Fit into Cassette
• Does the paper size match the size of the paper cassette? (p. 4)
C
 Paper is Not Feeding Properly
• Check the paper and paper cassette are correctly inserted. (p. 11)
 Frequent Paper Jams
• Has too much paper been placed in the paper cassette?
Do not place 19 or more sheets in the cassette (13 or more for Wide size).
• Have 19 or more sheets (13 or more for Wide size) collected on top of the paper cassette?
• Make sure that you are using the dedicated paper. (p. 10)
 Cannot Print the Specified Number of Prints. Paper Left Over
• Actions like the following will consume ink sheet capacity: repeatedly turning SELPHY on and off
without printing, canceling print in progress, pulling on the ink sheet and taking out the ink cassette
when the paper runs out while printing multiple copies. Do not remove the ink cassette when you
remove and refill the paper cassette.
Error Messages
If a problem occurs with SELPHY, a message and a possible solution appear on the screen. In this
section you can find solutions for problems when no solution is provided with the message. If a

Handling Precautions
C
 Do not apply excessive force to the printer. Force or impact on the printer may result in paper jams
or equipment damage.
 Do not turn the power on and off repeatedly when you do not intend to print.
The initialization process consumes ink and the equivalent of several pages could be wasted.
 Be careful not to spray the equipment with insecticides or volatile substances. In addition, do not
store the equipment in contact with rubber or vinyl products for long periods of time. This may cause
alteration of the casing.
 Depending on the room temperature, SELPHY may overheat and temporarily stop operating. This
is not a malfunction. SELPHY will resume normal printing as soon as it cools down. Temporary
stoppages increase printing time and are most likely to occur when printing continuously, if a room
is unusually warm, if the air vents on the back of SELPHY are blocked and internal temperature is
high.
 Avoid condensation on the equipment when moving it from a cold to a hot place, by putting it in
an airtight, sealable plastic bag and allow for adjustment to temperature changes gradually before
removing from the bag. In the event that condensation does form within the equipment, keep it at
room temperature until the water droplets evaporate naturally before use.
 When SELPHY gets dirty, wipe the casing with a soft dry cloth.
 When dust or dirt has accumulated on the battery cover or vent (pp. 6, 29), be sure to remove the
color ink cassette (p. 15) before cleaning. If dust gets in through the vent, the printer may not print
cleanly.
Never wipe using volatile solvents such as benzine, paint thinner, or diluted neutral solvent. They
may cause deformation or peeling of the casing.
