So i've got a selphy CP1200, it has been in storage for the last couple years in a special padded case in a temperature controlled room. It worked perfect the last time I used it, which I had used for a couple months at that time. I think i've only printed about 150 photos with it.
Got it out this weekend because I wanted to use it again. When you turn it on, it gets to the Canon logo and won't go any further. I've been trying for days to get it to work. ONE TIME tonight it actually started up and I got to the menus. But since that one time, back to nothing again.
Tried connecting via USB, and my laptop shows the printer under "Other Devices" with no driver, and the driver install program doesnt find the printer.
What can I do to get it working?
well, first of all, there is nothing in the knowledgebase about the printer getting stuck at the canon logo. I had already looked before posting.
Second, why would I pay for a repair to a printer that worked one day, and hangs the next time i turn it on? It has been stored properly, and maybe only printed 100 pictures or so. Seems poor quality hardware, but it is long out of warranty.
The "support" I have received and the "quality" of this product are making me look for different brands of printers now, even though I have purchased only canon printers since the late 1990s.
