Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Horrible grinding noise


The problem sounds like a broken or stripped gear in the printer. If the unit is under warranty I would contact the authorized repair station for that printer in your local area.

Paper won't feed


You need to clean the rollers in the back panel of the printer and reset the cradle or carriage if you can. The cradle is what moves the cartridges back and forth inside the printer.

Unplug the printer while it is powered on and remove the back panel. Get a damp cloth (not too wet) and wipe off the rubber rollers in the printer as well as on the panel. Replace the panel and Open front panel where cartridges are and move them all the way to the left and back again to the right.

Make sure there is no paper or anything in the way blocking the printer from printing. Plug printer back in and it should come on by itself and initialize.Print a page from your computer. It should now only feed a single sheet at a time and the cradle
should move freely.

If not then the paper sensor isn't working correctly and you will need to replace the unit if that is the case. You should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted
price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.

Printing digital photo on 8x11


Right click on the photo to be printed and select edit. When the picture is displayed pull down file and select 'page set up'. Set to fit 1 to 1 pages. Leave the margins and center were they're at. Pull down file and select 'print preview'. If this fits covers most of the page , type c (this closes this window and returns you to the previous one).and pull down file and select 'print'. If not again type c, select file and 'page set up' again and select land scape. If this is better, print this

Can't print


It flashes orange for a few seconds, and then back to green, and then back to orange every few seconds. I can't shut it off unless I unplug it. It also makes a horrible racket.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
