Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have a Canon MP530 that won't power on.

I have a Canon MP530. After cleaning the printer head and replacing it... the printer wont power on. I tried the printer head in another MP530 and the same thing happened... no power. I unplugged for an hour or so and when I plug in again, I hear a very quiet electrical pop and still no power. It acts like there is a short but can,t figure out where it would be. Same thing on both printers now. I leave them unplugged then plug back in and hear the same pop sound and no power.

i then unplugged the two plug in groups of wires and re-plugged them.

inserted the power cord again..... And it worked

SOURCE: Clean printer head for iPF700 instead of replacing

If you have blocked nozzles unfortunatelly you have to replace the print head.
What about the nozzle check pattern?

Turn the printer upside down right underneath where the cartridge station is you will find a small white gear...sometime it may be covered with a blue rubber cover.
when you turn the gear ..the barrier in front of the cartridge will go down.
Then do a rest on the printer and then install it.

SOURCE: Canon iPF700 printer used only occasionally - print head dried up

I recommend shutting it off when you dont use it.

Also if you use it on a regular day like say Wed, then print just a bit with it during the week on say Monday or Friday (or both)to keep it from drying up.

I hope this helps!!!

SOURCE: Canon MP530 print head malfunction

I had the same problem with my printer. There is a switch that tells the printer that the cover is open or closed. Unplug the printer. Open up the printer cover and look on the inside right side edge. About half way back, you'll see a 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch hole where this switch resides. If you put your finger into it, you may be able to push on a lever and it will go down. It should spring back up when you pull your finger out. If you can feel the lever but it just sits at the bottom then there either this lever is broken or the spring fell off.

The problem with my printer was the spring had popped out. To access the switch, you'll need to remove the right side cover. Do this by removing the two screws in the back on the right side. Open the printer cover and find the third screw. It is located on the right hand side, near the front of the printer, on the top. Remove this screw and pop out the cover and see if you can find the spring that is attached to the lever. Make sure you do this in an area that if a small piece fell out you could find it.

Look at the switch and lever. If there is no spring attached to the lever then it is most likely the problem, otherwise the switch may be bad or the electronics inside the printer. There is a hook on the lever and one on the printer. Reconnect the spring and it should fix the problem. I found my spring had completely fallen out and fell on the floor when the cover was opened. It is possible that this spring if fallen out can fall back inside the printer so you may have to shake the printer to find this little spring. It is about 1/2 inch long. Hope this helps.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

What you can do is take the ink cartridges out of the print head and remove the printhead. Hold the print head over a trash can and take some 409 cleaner and spray the little pads inside the print head til you start noticing the colors dripping into the trash can. You will them want to dry off the print head as much as possible and litely wipe off the outside and the bottom of the print head with a paper towel. Then reseat the printhead back into the printer and the inks. You will then want to run a nozzle check from your printer software or from the printer properties. If the inks still are not showing up run one or two cleanings. If the issue still persists then you might have to replace the printhead. If this is the case you can look up part number: QY6-0059-000 online to replace the print head.

Canon PIXMA MP530 Error Code 5100


OK. It sounds like there's something on the carriage bar restricting the movement of the ink carrier. Perhaps some ink got on the bar.
Try taking a clean lintfree rag dampened with rubbing alcohol and clean the bar. This may have to be repeated a number of times to get the foreign matter off the bar and the ink carriage.
Let me know if this helps. iF it does not we can try something else.
Thanks.

Installed all new ink cartridges and now poor printing results


Dear louis,
You have done right thing by cleaning the print head. If the print head still clogged after repeatedly cleaning, It seems that the print head need to be replace with new one. Make it sure by printing nozzle check pattern. Is it good or not?.

Canon mp530 all-in-one


have you tried cleaning the printhead. on the printer there is a button that's labled menu, go to maintance and selelect print head clean. after the printer has done this, in the same section "maintance" you can print a nozzel page and that will show if if there's a blockage in the print head. if the nozzel check is ok, and your getting the problem when you print from the computer, check the setting and make sure you haven't got it set on draft or lower. Good luck
