Printing issues with the device ¶

Paper cassette is empty ¶
Check that the cassette is inserted correctly. To connect the paper cassette to the printer, follow the instructions engraved on the paper cassette. Place paper in the cassette opening.
Ink cartridge is out of ink ¶
If a notification pops up stating the ink is low, replace the ink cartridge. Instructions to replace the ink cartridge are located at Canon Selphy CP910 Ink Cartridge Replacement.
Disconnected WiFi ¶
Once the device is on, select the following options: "Menu," "WiFi Settings," Connection Settings," "Via WiFi network," Connection Method," and "Search for an access point." Select an available WiFi network.
Memory card issues ¶
A memory card is inserted into the printer but it is not printing.
Printer isn't reading memory card ¶
Check to ensure the top of the memory card is facing up with the bevel (cut off corner) going into the printer. Select the picture you want to print. Make any desired edits then press the "Print" button.
Memory card doesn't match the SD card slot ¶
If the camera memory card is a Micro SD, insert it into a SD adapter before inserting it into the printer. This will allow the memory card to fit in the SD card slot.
Image format isn't recognized ¶
Check the file format of the image on a computer by inserting the memory card and opening the file. The format should be jpeg. If the picture is not in jpeg format, select "Save As" and choose "jpeg."
Camera issues ¶
The printer is connected to a camera but the image isn't printing.
Dead batteries ¶
Turn on the camera and check the battery indicator (usually located in the top right corner). If there is one bar or less, connect the camera to a charger. Proceed to print.
Disconnected camera and printer ¶
Make sure the camera and printer are connected to each other with a USB cord. The type of USB cord may vary depending on the type of camera being used. Ensure that the camera and printer are both connect to the end of a USB cord before proceeding to print.
PictBridge application ¶
PictBridge allows the image to be printed directly from a digital camera to the printer, without direct connection. Click here to check that the camera supports PictBridge.
Computer to printer issues ¶
The image won't print while using a computer.
Disconnected WiFi connection ¶
Ensure that both the printer and computer are connected to a WiFi connection by checking the internet access status on both devices.
Incorrect cord ¶
If connecting the devices with a cord, ensure that a double sided USB cord is being used.
Driver installation ¶
Insert the solution disk that came with the printer into the computer. Open the disc file location and select the folder labeled "Driver." Select which driver you want to install (either 32 bit or 64 bit). Open the "Setup" application. Follow the steps provided.
