CANON PIXMA MP520 NOT PRINTING BLUE


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I cannot scan because display is a black screen. I can print though.


The flex cable for that display breaks internally and leaves you a blank display. Canon has a replacement cable for around $10.00. Easily repaired in a shop.

Mp520 will not scan, document is on glass platen, press the black and white scan button but nothing happens. please hel. thanks


Did it come with any software? My printer wouldn't print when I tried using the scan button. If it came with software you could try scanning using that. If you dont have it it's probably available for download on canon's website

Printer screen is lit but blank


This worked for me:
1. Close the display lid as far as possible so you are just able to reach the power button.
2. Power off and back on.

Canon MP520 can print but not scan


I had the same problem. The all-in-one driver download doesn't include the stuff you need for the scanner. Go to this link (canon), click "OSX" on the dropdown list for what os you're using, then click "mp520sosxsd1391ej7.dmg" under "MP520 series Scanner Driver Ver. 13.9.1 (Mac OS X 10.2/10.3/10.4/10.5/10.6)." It doesn't take long to download and completely fixes the problem.

Blank LCD display screen


You need to check firstly that the LCD connections are still connected correctly inside the printer and then you can enter service mode on the printer and run an LCD test. To open printer and run test you will need a service manual:

Pixma mp520 scanner won't scan


I emailed Canon Tech Support (after searching their MP FAQ) and received this response. It worked for me:

Please follow these steps to set the push button event for the MP520
scanner:
1. Click on the Windows button and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click 'Scanners and Cameras'. For Vista users, if 'Scanners and Cameras' is not listed, click 'Switch to Classic View' on the left and then try again.
3. Double-click on the MP520.
4. Next, click on the Events tab.
5. For the 'Send to this application' option, select ScanGear driver, MP Navigator, or imaging application you would like to use for the scan button event in the list.
6. Click Apply or OK to save your settings.

Scanner problems


You need to have the full photosmart software loaded on the computer and to use this to scan to computer rather than using the buttons on the printer. This is a workaround rather than a fix but it should work

Lexmark 1270 only prints green!


Sounds like you're missing blue. Using the Lexmark software (maintanance section) that's on the PC, Clean the print heads. You should see all 3 colors (blue, red, yellow) and black. If not, buy a new cartridge as the head on the blue ink are clogged.

Hope that helps...
