Selphy DS700: False paper jam message and poor print quality

My new DS700 started by having very poor print quality - stains across picture, blotchy ink dots if ink release is not controlled properly. The print head and cartridge were new and sealed (as uspplied in box) It then stopped working and gave a "paper jam" message when nothing was jammed. The paper seems to shoot too far out the back and is not pulled forward for printing. Canon say it could be a sensor so I looked but could see nothing. After this it worked about 10 times OK except for the totally rubbish print quality. After a total of about 20 prints all the ink has now gone. Furthermore, the "paper jam" problem has come back!

Poor prints and paper jams

Sounds like you probably need a new fuser. Smearing is a good indicator of the fuser not getting the toner to fuse to the paper, also, if it is jamming a lot near where the paper enters the fuser, there is a good chance there is some damage on the fuser unit itself.

I get paper jam notice, remove jam and restart. There is no paper jam,when I try to print only half of picture prints

Make sure there is plenty of room behind the printer, the paper is drawn in the front and sticks all the way out of the back before it starts printing, it will show a jam if it can't get all the way out of the back slot.

Will not turn off, will not print text, poor quality pictures

well..this is not a happy circumstance. I must report that when the paper is pulled through from the front, it can damage some innards, which I suspect is the case here.

sounds like it's a candidate for a factory service gig.
