Hey Donald hows it going, sounds like the printer is frozen up or theres a file still waiting to print thats jammed so what we are going to do is the following

press cancel on the printer itself and see if the printer will clear the printer if not,
disconnect the printer from the computer itself turn the printer off and unplug it from the wall wait a few minutes and plug it back into the wall and dont plug it into the computer just yet make sure that its fuctioning by printing out a test page from the printer itself if this works then we know its not the printer but the computer. this ushally means there is a full que or something that hasnt been printed or paused which happens here and there best thing for that would just be simply shutting down your computer waiting a minute and turn it back on and then attach the printer while its on. and see if you get the same results as you did before only this time do a test page through wordpad or notepad just put a line or two of text for testing purposes.

See what happens did we get it?

if not please let me know and I will or others will try to help the best we can in getting this issue sorted out for you.

Can you do macs? how do i print duplex with this printer, duplex is suported by my mac


The Canon-supplied MP530 driver doesn't have duplex printing as a print option. Mac OS 10.5 has Gutenprint drivers built-in for a number of popular printers, including the Canon MP500 which is a near match for the MP530 and includes the two-sided option for printing.

With the MP530 plugged into your Mac (or, presumably, available over the network) go to the Add Printer wizard ( System Preferences > Print & Fax > + ). Pick MP530, name the printer something like "MP530 Gutenprint" and under "Print Using:" choose "Select a driver to use...", select "Canon PIXMA MP500 - Gutenprint v5.1.3" and then Add the printer.

The MP500 Gutenprint driver isn't a perfect substitute for the MP530 one, however, so you should do this in addition to installing the proper MP530 driver from the Canon website and adding the printer using that driver with a name like just "MP530" or "MP530 Canon". In a year or two of using the Gutenprint driver I've only once had a print job that wouldn't render correctly (some missing lines on the printout), and for that one time I had to switch to the Canon-supplied driver to get it to work. All the other times I find it very convenient to have two-sided printing available as an option.

The two sided printing isn't particularly fast, but it's a whole lot more convenient than manually printing the odd pages and then the even pages.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Error message


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Use scaled printing (Mac OS X) Instructions to use scaled printing. You can manually select the scaling ratio you wish to use to print images and documents. scaling_sample.jpg Note: The Scaled Printing function is not available when Borderless Printing is selected (OS X.version 10.2.1 or higher).
  1. Open the Page Setup dialog box.

  2. Specify the Scaled Printing settings.

    Note: For a reduced scale printing, enter a value smaller than 100 %. For an enlarged scale printing, enter a value greater than 100 %.

  3. Click 'OK'.
