Printing Precautions
This section explains the precautions that should be observed
when printing.
These precautions are applicable to all of the printing methods,
including “Printing from Memory Cards,” “Printing from Cameras,”
“Printing from Computers” and “Wireless Printing.”
• Do not pull out the paper cassette or open the ink cassette cover just after
turning on the printer or while printing. This will lead to malfunctions.
• During printing, the paper will pass in and out four times. Do not touch or
pull on the paper during this process. It may lead to injuries or
malfunctions.
• Placing 19 or more sheets in the paper cassette (13 or more Wide Size
sheets) will lead to mis-feeds or paper jams. Moreover, do not let 10 or
more sheets of printed paper collect on top of the paper cassette.
• Printing temporarily ceases if the printer interior rises past a certain
temperature. Since printing will automatically resume when the
temperature lowers, please wait a moment. (This may occur when the
ambient temperature is high or numerous prints have been produced
continuously.)
• Do not print on printed paper.

camera, regardless of the manufacturer or model, to print images directly to
a printer without using a computer.
USB Connector
for Camera
• When connecting a camera to the printer to print, you are recommended
to power the camera from a power outlet to avoid having the camera
cancel the print partway for lack of battery charge. If you are using a
battery, ensure that it is fully charged or new.
• To have the retractable USB cable recoil, pull it lightly forward, then while
holding the cable let it retract into the printer.
• The cable can be extended approximately 30 cm (12 in.). Be careful not to
over-extend it, which may lead to malfunctions.
Connecting the Camera
Connect the camera to the printer with the following procedures.
Before you connect the camera to the printer, ensure there are no memory
cards in the printer or that the printer is not connected to a computer.

Battery Handling
To protect the battery and prevent a decline in performance, do not charge
it continuously for more than 24 hours.
• This is a lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to completely use
or discharge it before recharging.
3 Attach the battery cover onto the printer.
• It can be charged at any charge state.
Push the battery cover in the direction indicated by the arrow until
it clicks into place.
• You are advised to charge the battery on the day of use, or one day
before, to ensure a full charge.
• Even charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally.
• The battery life should be considered over when the usable time is
severely limited even after the prescribed charging time.
• Replace it with a new battery.
Battery Storage
• After you finish using the battery, attach the battery pack terminal
cover and store it at a cool temperature (0°-30°C/32°-86°F).
Storing the battery fully charged for long periods of time (about 1 year)
shortens the battery life and causes its performance to decline. When you do
not use it for long period of time, fully charge it once a year and store after
fully discharging it in the printer.
Remaining Battery Charge
The printer indicator will begin to blink orange when the battery charge
is low. In addition, a message may appear on a connected camera’s LCD
monitor or the printer’s LCD monitor. Recharge the battery or exchange

Handling Precautions
Printing
Appendices
• Do not touch the print side (shiny side) of the paper with your fingers.
Always hold the paper along the edges (outside the perforated border).
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.
This section explains the precautions that you should take in
handling the equipment.
• Use a non-soluble ink pen to write on the paper sheets.
• Please avoid the following actions as they may result in color change,
color fading or color bleeding.
Equipment
•
•
•
•
• 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 switch the power on/off repeatedly when you do not intend
to print.
The printer initialization process consumes ink and the equivalent of several
pages could be wasted.
Sticking any type of adhesive tape onto the print surface.
Allowing print surfaces to come into contact with vinyl or plastic.
Applying alcohol or other volatile solvents to the print surface.
Leaving print surfaces tightly pressed against any other surfaces or objects
for prolonged periods.
Battery (SELPHY CP750 Only)
• 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.
• Keep the battery terminals clean at all times.
Dirty terminals result in a poor connection. Before recharging or using the
battery, polish the terminals with a slender, soft tipped cotton swab.
These materials may cause deformation of the printer’s casing.
• Do not handle the ink cassettes with wet or sweaty hands.
• Do not touch the springs of the paper cassette. If the springs are bent
or deformed, paper will not feed correctly into the printer.
• Do not carry or store the battery pack with metal objects with sharp
edges, such as paper clips and pins. Always put the terminal cover on
the battery pack’s terminal when carrying it or before storing it.
• 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).
Battery performance will temporarily drop in cold environments, such as ski
hills.
Spring
• If the battery status is low, the finished print may not be ejected into
the print output receptacle completely.
If that occurs, replace the battery with a fully charged one or use the compact
power adaptor.
• Do not place any foreign objects in the print output receptacle (on the
top of the paper cassette).
