Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

Cannot get rid of error message "Set print cartridge" on printe

A friend gave me a refurbished Canon MP530 multifunction printer. When I turn it on, it gets as far at the aforementioned error message. I have replaced ALL of the cartridges, reset and set them back in numerous times, all the while turning off the printer and then turning it back on again. I read that if they are all installed properly and locked in, a little red light comes on at the front of each one. They are all locked in, and none of the ilghts are on, at all...not even a hint of one.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated...I am ready to toss it.. ;(

Sounds to me like you have tried nearly everything.

Did you manipulate anything via your printer program??? Control panel/ printer - select your printer and browse the tabs.

Is everything cool according to the Windows device manager? (right click my computer - find device manager and open it. Look for any funny markings (yellow or red)

Im sorry you are having this trouble.

Remove all ink tanks (printer is on), remove printer ink cartridge carrier head. clean head with alcohol wipes thoroughly, not contacts. Push in gently print cartridge pistons on cartridge carrier. Reseat print cartridge and ink tanks, replace any very low ink one's. turn off printer, unplug electrical, remove usb on printer and computer. plug all back in, turn on. Alarm and message should disappear. Clean and realign with software.

Service error 5c10


This error is a message indicating print head/ink failure on the printer.
I would try the following 2 things:
1. replace the ink cartridges/print heads. test to see if the problem is fixed.
2. If this does not solve the issue, you may need to either send it to the manufacturer for repairs (if under warranty), send it to a local repair person to service- or look for a new printer to buy (which may actually save you money).

MP530 - Check Printer - 6A00 error


Hi
Hope it will work for you
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
