Question about Canon Selphy CP510 Thermal Photo Printer
Having problem with paper feeding into the printer. The 4x6 inch cassette fits properly, but no paper is fed after clicking "print". The printer reacts to the common, but not the paper (with 3 or even 15 sheets in the cassette). A red light came out inidcating that there is a problem.
I doubt very much that you need to reset the printer, or, even if you did, that this would make much difference. It sounds as if there is a menu item which you should be able to bring up on the display which then allows you to release and extract the cartridge. I have scoured the web for information on this one and Canon, naturally, only supply the software, not the manual. If you have a manual can you look up and quote the relevant bit in it which deals with changing the cartridge? If there is nothing there which says that you have to go to a menu item to release it then it sounds like a mechanical problem - as in 'needs a bit of a yank'. I'll keep looking.

Open the top as if you were going to change ink cartridges. Find all rollers yuou can and wipe them with a t-shirt type material dry. Do not use any liquids unless you can get some rubbing alcohol. Turn the wheels and claen them as best as is posible. Open the paper jam door and do the same to all rollers in site. Any way you can get to the rollers, use it. This should solve your problem. Also try fanning your paper before loading it. Thanks, Dana

This is sort of scenario is usually caused by dust inside the printer. Dust has a way of preventing the sensors from detecting paper. Also it prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). If you have a blower you may also use it to blow well into the interior of the printer (If you do not have a blower the brushing will still do if you do it well.) This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

Testimonial: "That was exactly the information I needed. It still needs a little push on the paper once in a while, but I'm back to printing. THX"
