My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.

Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.

After switching the printer on it gets ready to print and I hear the usual sounds, I persume the ink cartridge carrier moving but recently it has started making a loud chattering sound for a few seconds...


First of all, check to see if you also hookup the phone cable to jack too? If yes, temporary unplug it to see if noise goes off.
Also, open the lid to check on the drive belt. It may be loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is the gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on left side of the of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight might be broken. Check that to see if it is the case. If it is that is why it makes loud noise when printing. And if it is not fixed, eventually you will receive an error message and printer will not work.
Check that and let me know.
Thanks

Canon MP530 grinding noise. Tried 2 solutions in this forum - didn't work. Noise happens when printer is idle, after printing. Print head (carriage?) tries to 'park' when noise happens.


Someone, somewhere, suggested removing the cartridges and then the printer head, putting them back, and unplugging and then rebooting the printer. I do believe this has solved my problem. I had been living with the horrid grinding sound for many months, and now it is gone. I am crossing my fingers that this will last, because otherwise it's been a great all-in-one.

My CANON PIXMA MP530 is showing the alarm, "Document in ADF."


Open the top cover of the ADF and look for a rectangular hole with a lever stuck down. That lever should only go down when a paper is placed in the feeder, and sometimes they get stuck in the down position. A bent paper clip might help you lift it gently...

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Canon Pixma MP530 clicking


it is nothing to do with a phone jack, trust me this sounds like internal crunching and munching... but as reported by the others, no jams, no printing errors, just loud clicking and clunking!
