Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon MP 530

My computer suddenly doesn't recognize the printer - I've uninstalled and re-installed the driver but I can't get the PC to recognize it - listing it as an unknown device on my USB port. I've noticed that the cable appears to be loose where it connects to the printer..could this be the problem?

Possibilities:
1) One of your USB devices have faulted, or is causing a resource conflict (or similar)
-- Remove all USB devices, and reboot.
2) Your USB chip/ports have been damaged.
-- Find a spare HardDisk or bacjup your data and re-install Windows and see how that goes.
3) Your Power Supply Unit (PSU) isnt supplying enough power to your PC (usually caused by a Video card upgrade). Try a more powerful PSU ... 400watts should do the trick
4) Bad memory (RAM) can cause wierd problems. run memtest for an hour to make sure your memory is ok





It seems that many people are still getting the 'USB Device not Recognized' problem from time to time. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.
Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.
In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.
Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;
HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Usb
Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.
A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying .
Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.
Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;
1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)
2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.
3. USB Root Hub(s)
4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)
Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.
Hopefully some of this may be of help, let us know how you get on.

I have installed a canon Scanner but i can not open the MP navigator. The popup says that the scanner driver supported by this software is not installed.Install it then retry. Is this something I have to...


You can download the drivers from Canon's website (http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support) and select the right category and model for your printer. if you have a problem with the MP navigator, uninstall everything for the Canon MP , turn off the printer, UNPLUG the cable that connects the printer to your computer. Now re-install both the software and the drivers. Once that is completed, turn the machine back on and plug in the cord that connects the printer to your computer (this is when it automatically downloads the driver needed for the software to work- MP navigator- and the scanner).
Hope you will find this helpful.

Although I can print, my Canon MP 530 is not recognized by my computer runnig Windoes XP in its scan mode. I removed and re-installed the driver but the problem continues. Any ideas on how to fix this...


The most frequent reasons for this problem is a lack of bi-directional communication between the all-in-one and the computer. (I will assume you installed the drivers/software in the correct order - before attaching the USB cable between the computer and the all-in-one.)

Try a new cable and plugging into a different USB port on the computer. If you are using a print server or USB hub, connect directly to the computer.

I hope these ideas help.

Canon MP 460 suddenly stopped communicating with my Dell E520


OK, what has happened is the driver has become corrupted. You need to reinstall from your DVD. But FIRST, go to Device manager, Find USB, and remove ALL items, right click, each one and Uninstall and delete drivers. Now Unplug Printer. Reboot. At next desktop, using the DVD for the printer, install the software, follow instructions, plug in the printer when asked, this should get you back.
IF you do NOT have your drivers etc. Go to website below and download it and install.While there get a manual too, for troubleshooting.

I have a cannon 160 printer but when I click on it, the screen to ask about scanning or print doesn't show.


I have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP160 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.
