Your machine needs to be serviced as something like dust or any other object is blocking the gears in the paperfeeder tray to rotate frequently.
it will cost u near to $20 for geting it serviced.

You need to tell us in what is the sequence the orange and green lamps flash. This will tell us what error you are getting. its more accurate than any error code given by the pc.

My canon MP 530 indicates a paper jam, will not reset, I have checked and cleared both upper and lower feed area. What do I do next?

Try cancelling all documnents queueing to print, check the cover is on properly at the back of the printer if you have removed it, turn the printer off completely and leave overnight.
I did all this in desperation and it worked perfectly the next time I turned it on.

clean the printer head using the printer software tools, do these 3 to 4 times then print a page, if still work check your ink level, if you have a full ink cartridge and there no printer error aside from this have your printer head check by a qualified tech

Cannnon mp-530 shows 6a00

This is same as the wat full
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
