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

4 Answers

Canon Pixma mx300. "U163 col," won't scan.

I have a canon Pixma mx300 all in one printer/scanner/copier/fax. I keep getting a message "U163 col". I understand this means I need to change my color cartridge.

Problem: ALL I'M TRYING TO DO IS SCAN, AND NO BUTTON WILL GET ME OUT OF THE ERROR MESSAGE!

A SPECIAL NOTE: The reset button is actually the RED "STOP" button. Sooooooo no one mentioned this little oddity during the usability testing Canon!?

How can i get the instuctions to work my scanner on my canon mx300 ? i need to set my labtop up to my canon mx300 i figure out the printing but cant figure out the scanning set up .


First the drivers need to be installed, then the program you use to scan may need to be told that's the scanner to use.
Your program should then work fine

Usually you get a CD with it that does all that and supplies program for all functions.

How do you get the Canon MX300 printer to scan? I do not know what all you need for a printer to scan but when I press the scan button it just beeps and nothing happens.


Hİ,
First You must install "MP Navigator EX" program to your Pc..and then you can control every feature of the scanner from your computer..(not from scanner...)
This program normally comes with the MX300 as CD ,if not you can download from Canon support page....Good luck..Regards

Ive replaced black ink cart but it doesnt work,still the message check ink u163 on th LCD.thank you


Either the new ink is a generic cartridge and not reset properly, or one of the other inks is empty. Your display should tell you which ink is empty. U163 just says that one of the inks is empty.

Here's a link to Canon's On-Screen Owner's Manual. Scroll down and click on MX300 series On-screen Manual for Windows. Look through the Fax section for guidance...
