Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

A loud banging noise from inside - as it adjusts post printing

Canon Pixma MP500 - As the printer makes its adjustments after printing in particular, there is a repeated and loud banging noise from inside and towards the back of the printer (near the paper feeder). It's like something is catching or is spinning and not able to grab on to the right bit and so it bangs repeatedly.

    It's still doing it - the banging is more like a rapid and very noisy vibration. Thanks for your suggestion though.

I'd check that there's nothing that's fallen into the rear paper feed that is now causing the rollers to jam and release with the bang you mention.

If you're feeling brave I'd try holding the printer upside down (get a friend to help you and watch out for the scanner sliding out!) and give it a bit of a shake to see if anything drops out.

Ok I have Canon Pixma MP500 All in One and Vertical black line shows up over and over but only if Im printing from top feeder not main one. I have followed handbook. Cleaned feeder, fixing unit, etc.

Your problem could be a simple as a blot or spot stuck on the scanner, carefully clean the scanner glass and particularly the small bar itself with a disposable alcohol swab, you may be surprised what kind of gunk you remove and it may well solve your problem.

A 22 cm long piece of foam has come out with my print job on my MP500 Canon Pixma Printer. It continues to operate Ok. Can I replace it myself or will I have to spend a lot getting a service. Any self help...

No need for manuals and such, the foam goes in the track under where the carriage travels. It is only there to catch any overspray when you make a borderless print. Your printer will work fine without it, but you can just lay it back in the track, it's not glued or fastened. You should look inside to make sure the other end pieces aren't sticking up to catch on the printhead.

My printer makes a loud banging noise when trying to print.

We solved the problem by buying a new printer. We figured for the cost of service, it was more economical to replace our older printer. Sad that these printers go to waste. Thanks
