Printing by Connecting Your Camera
If your Canon digital camera has a
(Print/Share) button, you can
connect the camera to the printer for easy printing.
Pull the cable out of the printer and attach it to the camera’s DIGITAL
Extends up to 30 cm (12 in.)

then while holding the
cable let it retract into
the printer.
Confirm that all memory
cards have been removed
from the printer.
DIGITAL Terminal
Press and hold the printer’s power button until the start-up image
displays on the LCD monitor.
Select an image on the camera’s LCD monitor and press the
(Print/Share) button.
Non-Canon brand cameras that are
compliant with PictBridge can also be
used. If the connector on the cable does
not fit your camera’s terminal, use the
USB cable supplied with your camera.
Refer to your camera’s operation
manual for further details.
Printing from Mobile Phones
The CP750 can print without a cable connection from a mobile phone
that supports infrared data transmission (IrDA, IrSimple). If you use a
mobile phone that supports the Bluetooth protocol, you can print
wirelessly with the separately sold Bluetooth Unit BU-20.
Up to approximately
20 cm (7.9 in.)
The distance over which infrared
data signals can be transmitted
varies according to the mobile
phone model and transmission
The signal transmission distance for
Bluetooth is about 10 m (32.8 ft.).
Hold the mobile phone within 10
degrees of the sensor in any direction.

Solutions for when you cannot print as expected, or think the printer is not
operating properly.
Power will not turn on…
Did you press and hold the power button until the start-up image displayed?
Check the compact power adapter, the main printer unit and the power cord to
ensure that they are correctly connected.
Cannot print…
Have you run out of ink sheets? SELPHY series printers cannot print any
more than the number of prints indicated on the color ink/paper
cassette packages. The starter ink cassette can be used to print 5 sheets.
Check that you are using the correct paper, paper cassette, and ink
cassette combination.
I have extra paper but the ink ran out…
Some ink may be consumed even if you don’t print if you tug on the ink sheets
or needlessly turn the power on/off repeatedly. Also, the ink can be wasted if
you take out the ink cassette when the paper sheets run out during a multiple
print run. Remove the paper cassette and replenish the paper without removing
the ink cassette.
Cannot print cleanly…
Did you set paper specific to SELPHY CP series printers in the
cassette with the shiny side upward as required? If the ink
sheet becomes dusty, blow it clean with a blower brush or
similar device. If narrow stripes appear, remove the ink
cassette and slide the supplied cleaner in and out two or
three times to clean the interior of the printer.
Images will not appear even with a memory card
Confirm that the memory card is inserted all the way into the correct slot. Also
confirm that the images conform to the Design rule for Camera File system.
Cannot set the mode, print layout, date imprint and print
number as expected…
Some categories cannot be selected or are disabled with certain combinations
of print mode, print layout, date imprint and print numbers.
Experiencing numerous paper jams…
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.
