    • To adjust the settings displayed, press Menu button and change the settings on the [Print settings] screen.

    • While printing, paper passes in and out of the back of SELPHY several times. Do not touch the paper until printing is finished and the print is ejected onto the paper cassette.

    • Do not allow 19 or more prints to collect in the ejection area on the paper cassette.

 Never pull out the paper cassette, open the ink cassette compartment cover, or remove a memory card while printing or when you hear printer operation sounds immediately after it has been turned on. This may damage the printer.

 To cancel printing in progress, always press <Back button>. Printing cannot be canceled by pressing <Power button>, and unplugging the printer may damage it.

On the image selection screen, you can view images by date and crop the selected image.
