Sorry, during the setup on the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app, did you see the option Select Conn. method (or printer connection method), or something similar? Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
Sorry, so on the Canon app on the iPad, you go to Connection method, then select option Direct Connection right? Then what does it show next? Please let me know; I'll go through steps with you. Thank you.
Do you mean Start cableless setup on the printer?
On printer's screen, press Menu button, then use arrow buttons to select option Wireless LAN Setup (or WLAN Setup), then press OK button
, then if prompted to press the WPS button, then press the red Stop/Reset button
, then select option Other setup, then let me know what you see. Thank you.
Sorry, it looks like this printer does not have the cableless option. Can you set up the Bluetooth BU-30 device? Thank you.
Can you insert the Bluetooth BU-30 device to USB port of the printer? Thank you.
After inserting the BU-30 device into the printer, does it show anything different on the printer's screen? Thank you.
On the iPad, open Settings icon, then select Bluetooth option, then make sure to turn on Bluetooth, then does it see your Canon printer? Thank you.
On printer, go to Setup (wrench/tool icon), then option Device settings, then Bluetooth settings, then what do you see? Thank you.
Can you go to option Access refusal setting and make sure it is set to OFF and OK, and check? Thank you.
Sorry, it is strange. Turn off Bluetooth on iPad
, then turn off printer, then disconnect power cord from the printer for a couple of minutes
, make sure the BU-30 bluetooth device is connected securely / pushed all way into the printer's USB port
, re-connect power cord to printer, then turn on printer
, wait a couple of minutes or so, then turn on Bluetooth on iPad
, and make sure iPad is near printer, then see if it detects the printer or not in Bluetooth.
I'm really sorry; it's strange; maybe the Bluetooth BU-30 device does not work. How much did you buy for it? Maybe you can return it, and buy a router instead (a cheap router can is even cheaper than the bluetooth BU-30 device)? Then the printer will work with the iPad through the router. Thank you.
You're welcome. The router should work fine, but if there is any trouble, you can always get back to me any time. Do you need anything else for now? Thank you.
You're welcome. OK. Please get back to me any time as needed. Also, can you please take a moment to rate my service today at the top, then click on Submit when it shows up. Happy New Year! Thank you very much for your patience,
