Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
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 pulled the power cord.
inverted the printer, depressed the two click to release tabs that let the plastic power box slide forward.
i then unplugged the two plug in groups of wires and re-plugged them.
inserted the power cord again..... And it worked
took 1 minute to do

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.

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!!!

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.
