Connecting two Canon MP printers at the same time

I have a Canon MPF30 and a just got a MP530. The setup tells me to remove any older versions of MP software. Since one is a photo printer and the other is not I would like to be able to run both of them on the same computer/network. Canon says I can't. I just don't beleive that,can anypne help? Thanks Ray

Re: Connecting two Canon MP printers at the same time

Have you tried installing the new software to a different directory? If you stay with the default installation it will over write anything previously put in there. If you go to a custom install you can choose where to put the files. choose something other than what is listed. After you install the new software then plug in the printer. Or plug it in when it asks you to.

Getting service error problem 5C10 on my Canon MP 530 printer.


You can send the printer to Canon to get the bad hardware replaced, if you dont want to buy a new printer.

But I would suggest to go for a new one.

My canon MP 530 indicates a paper jam, will not reset, I have checked and cleared both upper and lower feed area. What do I do next?

Try cancelling all documnents queueing to print, check the cover is on properly at the back of the printer if you have removed it, turn the printer off completely and leave overnight.
I did all this in desperation and it worked perfectly the next time I turned it on.

It is registering a empty ink cartridge. If you had the cartridge refilled instea of replacing the cartridge that is what happened. The chip on the cartridge wont register the refilled ink and tells the printer it is empty.

Scanning from Canon MP530 to Mac Powerbook

If you;ve installed the MP Navigator software from the CD, then you should be able to press the scan button on the printer with your Mac connected and the MP navigator will open automatically on your Mac ready to scan. You can also try going into Preview (the Mac app) and from the file menu select Import... and it should open a scan window.  Hope this helps!
