I haven't printed from my Canon SELPHY CP900 in like a year.

Customer Question

I haven't printed from my Canon SELPHY CP900 in like a year. I can't find the power adapter thing. Can I use the one from my regular laptop computer? This cord seems to allow the Selphy to turn on, but when I try to print, it tells me the battery is low and I need to attach to power adapter OR recharge battery?
thanks for any information you can give me,

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

No, your existing laptop charger would not work. At best, ***** *****'t fit at all, at worst it may fit and cause permanent damage. You should disconnect it immediately before it does cause damage as it won't be the proper voltage/amperage.

You can order a replacement of the proper adapter here:
