    Yeah, I have the exact same problem. Anyone have any solutions?

    MP520, blank screen when I open it completely, will work when 1/4 way up but once I open completely it goes blank

  • Sueno Apr 08, 2009

    As with the other two reports. My MP520 this morning displays a blank screen when open more than 70 degrees and the machine will not operate. At less than this angle the display is mostly OK but exhibits occasional break up but the printer operates. My guess is that there is a fatigue problem with the display (flat strand multi-way?) cable. There is probably also a feedback to the startup checks that is required to operate the printer. It looks like a return to canon problem! My machine is under two years old.

    Not good Canon........

    open the lid cover by lift it and push it forward, lift the black attachment where the ribbon cable ends, and re attached the

    cable, for the back lid cover, near the intersection of front lid, lift it and push it backward, the green cable attachment can be lift

    it also, good luck, mine already worn out the cable .. so it cant be done by this fix

But probably you might have got solution before doing this.
Check supply block if you can (grey, on rear left back, after returning printer) May be necessary to buy repair manual on ebay ($2.95)

The LED screen on my mp520 is often blank. I believe the ribbon cable may be damaged. Where is the ribbon cable on the printer?

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.

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:
