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

1 Answer

I have a MP530 printer and a vista os. I downloaded the drivers recomended and I suppose they loaded when I unzipped the folder. When I print on my photo paper i get vertical lines through out the photo and a dark print. Looks horrible. How can I adjust my machine or settings to get a great print. My last canon did a great job with my xp os.

If you downloaded the right driver for the right OS, and you were able to print then there is no correlation between your printer and the driver the problem is with your printer itself. i believed the printhead of your color printer is either dirty or have some smudges on it, ensure this first and foremost pls

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

After installing Windows 7, my Lexmark x4530 will not print. I have downloaded the updated drivers from Lexmark, but still wont' print.


I just solved this for myself. Download the vista drivers from the website. dont run the install when it downloads. First unzip the files to a folder on your desktop. Then right-click on the setup exe. Go to properties. select compatibility. Choose vista service pack 2. check the "run as admin" box near the bottom. THEN run the exe. good luck!

I LOST THE CD TO DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE INTO MY COMPUTER. HOW DO I DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE IN ORDER FOR ME TO USE THE PRINTER.


can u locate the download made?
if no then go to drive C and locate a folder called "downloads" it would be there.
if the download u made has a setup.exe hurry.double click it to lunch and follow the instruction to complete setup,make sure you select the option make printer default.
note some printer require u to cornet it to the computer before running setup.exe others do not but require it during the installation process. so read the instruction well.
But if the driver only unzips then you have unzip and follow this process.
go to printers and devices ,(with XP you will find it on the start menu, vista and win 7 it wold be in the control panel) .Click on add printer and follow the instructions.select the option that lets you install from a selected/advance location by you.depending on the OS you are using you have to browse for the advance location or click next for that step.to locate the unzipped driver,click the browse button and locate drive C the driver will be listed select the folder and click next to install the driver.

The same scan error too.


Hello,

You have to make sure that the scanner/printer driver is installed on the Vista system. Otherwise, it will not be detected. You can obtain the driver from Canon's download page and choose the one for Windows Vista.

No printing


It sounds like you upgraded from XP or another OS. If so you will have to uninstall the printer driver and software (do this from control panel/ Add-Remove programs or look under the Canon folder in Programs for an uninstall program) and then load the printer drivers/software for VISTA. Check Canon's website for the downloads, they should be free if they have a driver for VISTA.

I HAVE A NEW PC AND AM RUNNING WINDOWS VISTA HOW DO i INSTALL MY PHOTOSMART 2610 PRINTER? i HAVE A CD FOR WINDOWS XP sorry Didn't know caps lock was on.


Well first off, you're going to have to download the Vista drivers for the 2610 from the HP site.

Once you download them, unzip the file (just doulbe click it to unzip) and make note of where it unzipped to (it will say something like C:\drivers\xxxx

The go to your printer window.
Click the "Add printer" and local install. When it asks about drivers (what kind of printer you have) click "Have Disk" and point it at the folder the download unzipped to.

That's about it.

You don't need the install disk.

***Note***
In some cases, the download file will be a complete install routine. In that case, once you unzip it, sometimes it will go right into the install, in other instances, you have to look at the folder it unzipped to, and look for a setup.exe file
