I cant print. every time i hit the print buton, it should ask for ID and password, instead it ask to save that file..and then nothing happens..i try reinstalling the device but same things happen..

these is strange, how do you mean that it ask you to save the file? Is these copier stated above Canon ir 1600/2000?

Does your computer want to save file?

These is first time that I "see" something like these.

If you want you can contact me on for service manual.

We try to print something and the fax pops up wanting a fax address we have never used the fax I have a Canon MP530

the default is set to fax instead of printer. go to control panel. printers and faxes, then you will see "fax" and "printer", i think you will see a check on fac meaning it is the default printer.
Right click on printer, choose default and your problem should be solved.

if u have problems finding the above then you can find something to print, choose print from the file tab, a box will open and it has a drop down menu with the fax and the printer, click on the printer!
hope this helps!

When I try to print a page from IE, it gives me the canon menu but when I click print, it then keeps pulling up something about print to file and won't actually print a page. Its been very dependable for...

When you select "Print" from the File Menu and the print window opens up there is a small box on that window that says "Print to file" next to it.

Simply uncheck the box and you should be able to print.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Error message

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Error 5100 for canon mp530

I would do all of the following and see if yo can clear this code. It is not on any Canon list of possible codes, so I have no idea what it means., but let's do this:

Turn off the printer and unplug it.
Remove the print cartridges. Look at them, are they leak free? Look into the cartridge holders. Are they clean?. Dried ink or blobs should be cleaned off with a little alcohol and a qtip.

Are the little wire holders bent or broken? Do they look exactly the same?

Turn the printer back on reinstall the cartridges.Check in your printer preferences/services and clean your cartridges.

Now turn it off again and unplug it. Open the paper jam door and gently push the paper roller forward until it clicks. At the same time, look for even the tiniest scrap of anything in there.
Close the paper jam door and plug your printer back in. Restart your computer.

If the problem is not solved. You may need to reinstall the printer. Do You have your original disc? Be sure to do a clean install. ( Turn off all running programs in the lower right corner including your virus control. Also go to Toolbar>tools>internet options>general>and delete all you cookies and temporary internet files.) Turn off and unplug your printer.

Reinstall the software. When it is finished if it has not told you to plug your print back in do so now. Restart your computer and turn your printer on.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
