Selphy CP 510 Quit Printing

I have had my Canon Selphy CP510 for about 2 years. It's worked great until recently. I can't print from my computer anymore. I can still print directly from my camera though, so I know the printer still works. I have reinstalled the drivers, cleaned my Registry about 100 times, and yes, it has paper and ink.

I recently installed some new anti-virus software (System Suite 8) and a new external hard drive. It was about that time the problems started (although I don't know if that is the issue or not).

Help!! I love my little printer and I want it back!

SOURCE: ip4200 - printing issues!

Hi, Perhaps you can try: remove the USB connection of the printer; uninstall and remove all drivers of the Canon IP4200; reboot your PC; plug in your usb to the PC from the printer; power on your printer; let windows auto detect "New Hardware found"; let windows auto install drivers; test print. If after plugging in your usb and powering your printer Windows did not auto detect "New Hardware found", it's possible that your printer's usb cable is defective. If Windows auto detected the Canon IP4200 and auto installed all the necessary drivers but failed in the test print, repeat above steps but instead of auto install, use the original CD driver and not the new drivers (Let me choose which drivers I want". RESET - User manual is available from the Canon site. There are 2 versions, 1 is a Quick Start Guide in pdf and the other is a User's Manual (On-Screen). Both does not say anything about reset, however you may want to google "fix your own printer" and variations of resetting all sorts of printers are available. Some works, others are ... well you can always give it a try. Or in the On-Screen Manual,you can also try the Troubleshooting/Printing Does Not Start. Another thing that you can try is installing the printer in another PC using the old CD drivers and see if it works. If it does, then it is a driver issue with the new PC. If it does not, you're back to reset . Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

Hi,

I have a similar problem saying that the cartridge was not installed. Try winding the film on until you can just see the yellow film and try printing again. This normally fixes my problem for that print run, but the problem seems to regularly re-occur. Hope this helps.

Selphy 510 won't print from computer, print ok from camera ...


Did you download and install the proper Vista driver from Canon's website? If not, I would suggest that. If you have, then try opening the device manager and look for the printer. Reinstall the driver and just direct it to look in the proper folder for it.
