I checked the entire manual from this camera, and what i found out is that it does not have a way to Reset to factory settings, it does not have a way to control the Brightness, basically you can only use it to take pictures with flash or without flash and record video , you can also manage the quality of the picture by changing the size of Megapixels, but that would not help. Also found out that this camera uses 2 AA batteries , and that by taking the batteries out would not help either .

My review:

  • No way to manage brigthness, therefore no way to fix camera internally and manually.
  • Only 5Mpixels, not really worthed paying anyone to mechanically fix it, might be too old too
  • Only way to fix pictures taken, using a program from your computer to change the brightness settings, then print it.
Hope this review helps you.

That is the way with this camera. You could use a program like Photoshop and lighten the pictures up a little by hand. How bright of conditions do you usually take a picture in (indoor lighting?, bright sun?) Try a brighter area and see if that helps since there isn't an adjustment on the camera.

Try resetting the camera to factory settings from camera settings menu, also remove the battery to hard reset the camera.

If that does not work there is an internal fault.

    If the problem is only on printing, you definitively need a program like Photoshop, as already stated, in order to fix the problem.
    Photoshop is quite expensive, if you do not need the software as a professional tool you can use one of the following :10 Free Web-based Alternatives to Photoshop.

    Correct the picture brightness, or try using color/ light auto settings using one of the software from the website above, download and install a couple of them and keep the best one after doing a test print.

Actually, your first approach should be to contact Canon to find out whether they can provide a manual for your Selphy CP900

All my pictures are either blurred or dark.the flash used to work but it doesnt work any more.i dont know if you can help?


Almost certainly the pictures are dark and blurred because the flash doesn't work. These cameras are not worth repairing, generally, so either just use it in daylight or get another one - and don't buy Sanyo. Canon, HP, Panasonic, Samsung are better.

Falsh Problem with Power Shot a640


I had the exact same problem. You'll need to send it back to Canon. It'll cost you $87-94, but they'll clean it up, get the flash working, and make it new again. It's a good camera worth getting fixed.

Data stamp


There won't be...you can only get the date on the pic when you use POSTCARD setting.

Another suggestion would be to buy a Selphy printer from canon, and then you can select to have the date on the print.
