About the SELPHY CP800 Printer User Guide
Due to different firmware versions, there are two types (two versions) of the user guide
for the SELPHY CP800. Please check the serial number on the bottom of the printer
and click the right version for your printer.
1. How to tell which version you need based on the serial number
Sixth digit from the right
Bottom of printer

1) The sixth digit from the right is 0 or 1

2) The sixth digit from the right is 2 or greater 
First version
Second version
There are also cases where the printer's firmware may have been updated to the second
C
version if the printer has been brought in for repairs. In such cases, a comment about
the update to the second version of the firmware appears on the repair order, and the
user guide for the second version (or an excerpt of the things that have changed) is
included with the repaired product.
2. The differences in the firmware versions
1) First version:
The settings for the printing layout (for printing multiple images on a single sheet, see
page 19 in the user guide) are saved even when the printer's power is turned off. This
can be convenient you intend to print with the same layout the next time the printer is
used, but if that is not the case, it can result in prints in an unexpected layout.
2) Second version:
The settings for the printing layout are reset to the 1-up setting (for printing one image
on a full sheet) when the printer's power is turned off. To save the settings for the
printing layout even after the printer's power has been turned off, you can change the
settings to be the same as they are in the first version using the operation buttons (see
page 19 of the user guide for the second version of the firmware).

Getting Started
Preparations for printing images. A Postcard size Color Ink Cassette/Paper Set (sold separately) (p. 2) will be
used as an example, however Color Ink Cassette/Paper Sets other than Postcard size may also be used in
the same way to prepare for printing.
Preparing the Ink Cassette
Check the 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.
 If you overwind the ink sheet, it may not be possible to
use all the paper for printing and the ink sheet may tear.

ES series printers cannot be used.
 Never do the following, as it may result in failure or cause the printer to malfunction:
- reverse the paper (the shiny side is the print side)
- bend or separate the paper at the perforations before printing
- use label sheets that have begun to peel or label sheets with portions peeled back
- write on a sheet before printing
- print on already printed paper
- reuse a spent 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.

 To prevent discoloration, do not store prints in places subject to
temperatures of over 40 °C (104 °F), humid or dusty places, or in direct
sunlight.
 Avoid the following actions as they may result in color change, color
fading or color bleeding: 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, or leaving the print surface 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.
Color may change over time or depending on storage conditions. Canon assumes no liability for color
changes.

P
O
After you finish printing, follow the steps below to clean up and store SELPHY.
 Turn off SELPHY (p. 11), then remove the memory card or USB flash memory.
 Lower the screen (LCD monitor) completely for storage.
 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 paper cassette and close the paper cassette compartment cover. Keep the remaining paper
C
inside the cassette and store the cassette in a dark place free from dust.
 Keep the ink cassette inside SELPHY.
 Store SELPHY horizontally, in a dark place free from dust.
 When not using SELPHY, make sure to store the printer with the screen (LCD monitor) completely
lowered.
 If dust enters SELPHY and sticks to the paper or color ink, print quality will deteriorate.
 When you have more than one ink cassette, keep one inside SELPHY, and put the other inside the
original packaging or a bag to protect it from dust, and store it in a dark place.
 When storing new paper and ink cassettes, leave them in unopened packages, and keep them in a dark
place.

Troubleshooting
If you think there is a problem with SELPHY, first check the following. If the items below do not solve your
problem, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed on the included customer support list.
Power
 Power will not turn on
• Make sure the plug is correctly connected (p. 10).
• Hold the q button pressed until the start-up image appears on the screen (p. 11).
• When using a battery (sold separately), use a fully charged battery (p. 29).
Printing Problems
 Cannot print
• Make sure SELPHY is turned on (p. 11).
• Make sure that the ink and paper cassettes are correctly inserted (p. 10).
• When the ink is spent, replace the ink cassette with a new one. When the paper is spent, refill the paper
cassette with new paper (p. 14).
• Make sure you are using the correct combination of paper, paper cassette and ink cassette (p. 8).
• Connect SELPHY to only one device at a time. If SELPHY is connected simultaneously to a digital
camera, computer and has a memory card inserted, you may not be able to print properly.
• Make sure there is no slack in the ink sheet (p. 8).
• Make sure that you are using dedicated paper (p. 9).
• Depending on the room temperature, SELPHY may overheat and temporarily stop operating. This is
not a malfunction. Wait until the temperature drops and printing 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
Y
P
O
Cannot display/print images from memory card or USB flash memory
• Make sure the memory card is inserted all the way into the correct slot with the label facing upward (pp. 12, 13).
• Make sure the USB flash memory is inserted all the way, in the correct direction (p. 14).
• Make sure you are using a supported image type (p. 12).
• Make sure that any memory card requiring an adapter is inserted into the adapter before being inserted
into the slot (p. 12).
Printing from digital cameras
• Make sure your digital camera supports PictBridge (p. 27).
• Make sure SELPHY and the digital camera are connected correctly (p. 27).
• Make sure the battery/batteries in your digital camera are not depleted. If there is insufficient charge,
replace the battery with a fully charged one, or new batteries.
Printing from computers
• Make sure you installed the software according to the correct procedure (p. 23).
• Make sure SELPHY is connected directly to a port on the computer with the USB cable (p. 24).
• Problems Exclusive to Windows: Make sure the printer is not set to offline.
If it is, right-click the printer icon and cancel the offline setting.
• Problems Exclusive to Macintosh: Make sure SELPHY is registered on the Printer List (p. 24).
 Cannot print the date
Printing from memory cards or USB flash memory
• Make sure the date imprint option is set (p. 28).
If you are using DPOF printing, the date imprint settings are configured on the digital camera used for the
DPOF settings.
31
Printing from mobile phones
• The date cannot be imprinted on images sent from a mobile phone (p. 30).
Printing from digital cameras
• Make sure the date setting in your digital camera is set to [On]. However, if the setting is [Default], the
date imprint settings of SELPHY will be used.
 Cannot make clean prints
• Make sure the ink sheet and paper are not dusty.
• Make sure there is no dust stuck on the inside surfaces of SELPHY (p. 34).
• Make sure no condensation has formed on the inside surfaces of SELPHY (p. 34).
• Make sure SELPHY is not placed near a device emitting electromagnetic waves or a strong magnetic
field (p. 5).
 Colors on the computer display and the print are different
• Color generation methods are different with computer screens and printers. 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.
 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
• Make sure the paper size matches the size of the paper cassette (p. 2).
Y
P
O
 Paper is not feeding properly/frequent paper jams
• Make sure the paper and paper cassette are correctly inserted (pp. 8, 10).
• Make sure there are less than 19 sheets in the cassette.
• Make sure 19 or more sheets have not collected on the outer lid of the paper cassette.
• Make sure that you are using dedicated paper (p. 9).
C
 Cannot print the specified number of prints/paper left over
• Canceling a print in progress or pulling on the ink sheet will consume ink. If paper runs out while printing
many images, do not remove the ink cassette, as this will consume ink. Instead, refill the paper without
removing the ink cassette.
 Paper is jammed
• If the paper is sticking out from the front or back (paper ejection slot) (p. 6) of SELPHY, gently tug on
the paper to remove it. However, if a gentle tug is not sufficient to remove the paper, do not attempt to
forcibly pull it out. Turn the printer off and on repeatedly until the paper is ejected.
Error Messages
If a problem occurs with SELPHY, a message appears on the screen. If a possible solution displays with the error
message, follow the on-screen instructions. If no solution displays, refer to “Troubleshooting” (p. 31).
If these items do not solve your problem, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed on the included
customer support list.

*1 The “concentration gradation method” used by SELPHY allows 256 shades (max) of color to be represented per
dot. In comparison, printers using the area intensity method represent shades by the number of dots printed in
a unit of area, i.e. 256 dots (16 dots vertical x 16 dots horizontal) are needed to represent the same 256 shades
of color. SELPHY’s color representation is therefore equivalent to a 4800 x 4800 dpi resolution based on an area
intensity method.
• Gradation refers to the number of shades that can be represented on a print. For example, black and white
has two gradations, while 256 gradations include the shades of gray going from white to black that can be
represented.
• “dpi” refers to the number of dots that can be printed in 1 inch (“dots per inch”).

 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, or if the
air vents on the back of SELPHY are blocked and internal temperature is high.
 Avoid condensation on SELPHY when moving it from a cold to a warm place by putting it in an airtight,
sealable plastic bag and allowing for adjustment to temperature changes gradually before removing from
the bag. In the event that condensation does form within SELPHY, keep it at room temperature until the
water droplets evaporate naturally before use.
 When SELPHY becomes dirty, wipe the casing with a soft dry cloth.
 When dust or dirt has accumulated on the battery cover or vents (pp. 6, 29), be sure to remove the ink
cassette (p. 14) before cleaning. If dust gets in through the vents, 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.

temperatures of over 40 °C (104 °F), humid or dusty places, or in direct
sunlight.
 Avoid the following actions as they may result in color change, color
fading or color bleeding: 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, or leaving the print surface 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.
Color may change over time or depending on storage conditions. Canon assumes no liability for color
changes.

Troubleshooting
If you think there is a problem with SELPHY, first check the following. If the items below do not solve your
problem, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed on the included customer support list.
Power
 Power will not turn on
• Make sure the plug is correctly connected (p. 10).
• Hold the q button pressed until the start-up image appears on the screen (p. 11).
• When using a battery (sold separately), use a fully charged battery (p. 29).
Printing Problems
 Cannot print
• Make sure SELPHY is turned on (p. 11).
• Make sure that the ink and paper cassettes are correctly inserted (p. 10).
• When the ink is spent, replace the ink cassette with a new one. When the paper is spent, refill the paper
cassette with new paper (p. 14).
• Make sure you are using the correct combination of paper, paper cassette and ink cassette (p. 8).
• Connect SELPHY to only one device at a time. If SELPHY is connected simultaneously to a digital
camera, computer and has a memory card inserted, you may not be able to print properly.
• Make sure there is no slack in the ink sheet (p. 8).
• Make sure that you are using dedicated paper (p. 9).
• Depending on the room temperature, SELPHY may overheat and temporarily stop operating. This is
not a malfunction. Wait until the temperature drops and printing 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
Y
P
O
Cannot display/print images from memory card or USB flash memory
• Make sure the memory card is inserted all the way into the correct slot with the label facing upward (pp. 12, 13).
• Make sure the USB flash memory is inserted all the way, in the correct direction (p. 14).
• Make sure you are using a supported image type (p. 12).
• Make sure that any memory card requiring an adapter is inserted into the adapter before being inserted
into the slot (p. 12).
Printing from digital cameras
• Make sure your digital camera supports PictBridge (p. 27).
• Make sure SELPHY and the digital camera are connected correctly (p. 27).
• Make sure the battery/batteries in your digital camera are not depleted. If there is insufficient charge,
replace the battery with a fully charged one, or new batteries.
Printing from computers
• Make sure you installed the software according to the correct procedure (p. 23).
• Make sure SELPHY is connected directly to a port on the computer with the USB cable (p. 24).
• Problems Exclusive to Windows: Make sure the printer is not set to offline.
If it is, right-click the printer icon and cancel the offline setting.
• Problems Exclusive to Macintosh: Make sure SELPHY is registered on the Printer List (p. 24).
 Cannot print the date
Printing from memory cards or USB flash memory
• Make sure the date imprint option is set (p. 28).
If you are using DPOF printing, the date imprint settings are configured on the digital camera used for the
DPOF settings.
31
Printing from mobile phones
• The date cannot be imprinted on images sent from a mobile phone (p. 30).
Printing from digital cameras
• Make sure the date setting in your digital camera is set to [On]. However, if the setting is [Default], the
date imprint settings of SELPHY will be used.
 Cannot make clean prints
• Make sure the ink sheet and paper are not dusty.
• Make sure there is no dust stuck on the inside surfaces of SELPHY (p. 34).
• Make sure no condensation has formed on the inside surfaces of SELPHY (p. 34).
• Make sure SELPHY is not placed near a device emitting electromagnetic waves or a strong magnetic
field (p. 5).
 Colors on the computer display and the print are different
• Color generation methods are different with computer screens and printers. 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.
 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
• Make sure the paper size matches the size of the paper cassette (p. 2).
Y
P
O
 Paper is not feeding properly/frequent paper jams
• Make sure the paper and paper cassette are correctly inserted (pp. 8, 10).
• Make sure there are less than 19 sheets in the cassette.
• Make sure 19 or more sheets have not collected on the outer lid of the paper cassette.
• Make sure that you are using dedicated paper (p. 9).
C
 Cannot print the specified number of prints/paper left over
• Canceling a print in progress or pulling on the ink sheet will consume ink. If paper runs out while printing
many images, do not remove the ink cassette, as this will consume ink. Instead, refill the paper without
removing the ink cassette.
 Paper is jammed
• If the paper is sticking out from the front or back (paper ejection slot) (p. 6) of SELPHY, gently tug on
the paper to remove it. However, if a gentle tug is not sufficient to remove the paper, do not attempt to
forcibly pull it out. Turn the printer off and on repeatedly until the paper is ejected.
Error Messages
If a problem occurs with SELPHY, a message appears on the screen. If a possible solution displays with the error
message, follow the on-screen instructions. If no solution displays, refer to “Troubleshooting” (p. 31).
If these items do not solve your problem, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed on the included
customer support list.
If a problem occurs while SELPHY is connected to a digital camera, an error message may appear on

*1 The “concentration gradation method” used by SELPHY allows 256 shades (max) of color to be represented per
dot. In comparison, printers using the area intensity method represent shades by the number of dots printed in
a unit of area, i.e. 256 dots (16 dots vertical x 16 dots horizontal) are needed to represent the same 256 shades
of color. SELPHY’s color representation is therefore equivalent to a 4800 x 4800 dpi resolution based on an area
intensity method.
• Gradation refers to the number of shades that can be represented on a print. For example, black and white
has two gradations, while 256 gradations include the shades of gray going from white to black that can be
represented.
• “dpi” refers to the number of dots that can be printed in 1 inch (“dots per inch”).

Handling Precautions
Y
P
O
 Do not subject the printer to excessive force. Force or impact on the printer may result in paper jams or
equipment damage.
 Be careful not to spray the equipment with insecticides or other volatile substances. In addition, do not
store the equipment in contact with rubber or vinyl products for long periods of time. This may cause
deterioration 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, or if the
air vents on the back of SELPHY are blocked and internal temperature is high.
 Avoid condensation on SELPHY when moving it from a cold to a warm place by putting it in an airtight,
sealable plastic bag and allowing for adjustment to temperature changes gradually before removing from
the bag. In the event that condensation does form within SELPHY, keep it at room temperature until the
water droplets evaporate naturally before use.
 When SELPHY becomes dirty, wipe the casing with a soft dry cloth.
 When dust or dirt has accumulated on the battery cover or vents (pp. 6, 29), be sure to remove the ink
cassette (p. 14) before cleaning. If dust gets in through the vents, the printer may not print cleanly.
C
Never wipe using volatile solvents such as benzine, paint thinner, or diluted neutral solvent. They may cause
deformation or peeling of the casing.
