Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Canon MP530 auto-redial cancel

The Canon MP530 is generally an excellent MP machine, but there seems to be one area which the embedded software does not cover.

Can a fax on auto redial be cancelled (possibly when a wrong number has been entered). The 530 cannot be simply switched off- the software prevents this. It is possible to cancel the sending if you wait for a redial attempt by holding down the cancel button for 3-5 secs, but there seems to be no way of cancelling the redial before the repeat attempt.

    I wasn't trying to be funny, what I really meant was if you unplug the unit, that cuts the power therefore cancelling the outgoing fax. Doesn't it have a stop button? I thought it did have one, however

    I could be wrong.

    This should work. It does for me. In FAX mode (FAX, OK), go to the Menu button, use the right and left arrow keys and arrow to the right to Memory Reference, select OK. Then arrow over to delete document, select OK. It will give you one more time to hit OK by showing you a RX/TX No screen. Hit OK. Then it will ask you if you are sure. Hit OK. You're in business. The next screen will say delete document, but it won't have any document reference unless you had more than one document in the queue. When you're done, Just reset

When trying to fax it says auto-redial, what does that mean?

It means the machine will re-dial the number you have fed in, if it is busy, automatically. For that you have to set the machine to do so. Please go through the manual/user guide provided with the machine and set it up.

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.

Scanning from Canon MP530 to Mac Powerbook

If you;ve installed the MP Navigator software from the CD, then you should be able to press the scan button on the printer with your Mac connected and the MP navigator will open automatically on your Mac ready to scan. You can also try going into Preview (the Mac app) and from the file menu select Import... and it should open a scan window.  Hope this helps!

Connecting two Canon MP printers at the same time

Have you tried installing the new software to a different directory? If you stay with the default installation it will over write anything previously put in there. If you go to a custom install you can choose where to put the files. choose something other than what is listed. After you install the new software then plug in the printer. Or plug it in when it asks you to.

Can't use the fax on my Canon MP 530

There are 2 ports on the rear, 1 for the incomming phone line, and one to plug in a telephone handset (passthrough) if the telephone line is plugged into the wrong port, the fax machine is unable to dial properly, So try plugging into the other port on the back, it's just next to the other port hope this helps
