    Same problem w/ mac as well. It prints every page on only 25% of the sheet of paper. Scaling changes don't work.

I have cleaned and deep cleaned cartridges several times but when I print I'm still getting lines that aren't printing. BTW - when I run a "print pattern" check all is fine


The fact that the pattern test prints ok proves that the printer is not the problem. There seems to be a few posts lately referring to your problem. I presume you are printing photos with white horizontal lines on them. If so then the printer driver is not set up correctly. You have most probably set the print quality to normal and it should be at best. With it set to best you wont have any lines in the picture. Make sure that the paper you are using is also set (ie glossy, mat etc).

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

Check the default printing settings for the printer under printer properties. It sounds like the size is being sent from the macbook to the printer.

Canon mp530 all-in-one


have you tried cleaning the printhead. on the printer there is a button that's labled menu, go to maintance and selelect print head clean. after the printer has done this, in the same section "maintance" you can print a nozzel page and that will show if if there's a blockage in the print head. if the nozzel check is ok, and your getting the problem when you print from the computer, check the setting and make sure you haven't got it set on draft or lower. Good luck

Cannon Printer


Unplug usb .... Delete/unistall old driver .... download latest driver from www.canon.com .....install it .... insert usb when prompted

No free tec support, you could try ringing who ever you bought it from or local canon dealer and you may strike a friendly, but warranty is for printer malfuntion and you on the other hand seem to be having software/driver issue.

hope this helps you

Two-sided printing


On a PC...
- Ctrl + p to print
- Choose the Canon MP530 if it's not already selected
- Click Properties button
- Page Setup tab
- Select Duplex Printing

My paper always gets jammed, so I always uncheck the Automatic checkbox. Hopefully you won't have to do that.

Good luck.
