Tip & How-To about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer

No Power? Do this.

My PIXMA MP530 seemed unable to get power. I checked all the connections and couldn't get it going. A call to Canon was to result in them sending me a new printer until after a second call I got a technician who suggested the following and it worked!

Unplug the printer and wait at least an hour. After an hour plug it directly into a working socket.

Apparently there is a transformer that has to have the unplugged time to be able to reset (or something).

Anyway it worked and saved me a whole lot of hassle.

mp530 printer, no power , no lights or beeps

This just happened to our Canon MP530, which was about 10 months old. I called Canon support and they said they'd send a new power cord to us. Then, if that didn't work, they said they'd replace the unit. Well, turns out we found a replacement power cord ourselves and tried it - amazingly, the printer now works. So if this happens to your unit, try replacing the power cord. It may just fix the problem.
