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

1 Answer


HELP: I have a brand new MP530 with airport base station wireless connection to my brand new MACBOOK PRO laptop. Without realizing I did not have enough paper in the automatic paper feeder, I requested a large print job and the paper ran out before the print job completed. Part of the print job completed but when the paper ran out from the automatic feeder, the entire printing session halted even when I added more paper to the automatic paper feeder. The directions said, "load paper" so I loaded the automatic feeder with more paper. Now the Canon MP 530 says "printing" but nothing is operating. (There is no paper in the paper cassette since I do not and did not intend to use the cassette paper tray). So, now I have an unfinished print job with the MP530 saying "printing" but there is no printing going on and the green light;FEED SWITCH LIGHT is now on. What shall I do now? I've tried MENU repeatedly but nothing happens. I've tried the < and the > but nothing happens. I've pressed STOP/RESET but nothing happens. Actually nothing is happening at all although the MP530 says "printing." HELP!!! I am reachable by telephone at (415) 441-2691 or e-mail Please help me as soon as possible..I know tomorrow is Sunday and its already Saturday night but PLEASE HELP ME!

I would assume that your neighbor is running a b or g network without password.

To eliminate the signal issue, do the trouble shooting have the phone at least 6-7 feet away from the Airport. Try to have the phone connected without the network password first to check if it detects it. You can either reposition the airport or change the channels to resolve this.

Check with the airport if it is running on N or 802.11n, have it set to b or g or if it is running on all of them, then it should be fine since the phone does not support wireless N. If the issue is with the security, try first to connect without any network password. Once you have the phone connected, try out the different encryption one at a time. The phone supports WEP, WPA and WPA 2. Encryption may be tricky as this stage as different manufacturers may prefer specific encryptions.

Wireless and multi function printers

I'm sorry to say that the answer to your question is no.  You can print wirelessly with most printers using either an Airport Extreme Base station or an Airport Express, but for scanning, you will need to be physically connected to the scanner.

If you wanted to, you might be able to set up that old desktop to be permanently (and physically) connected to the scanner, and then you could either connect to that PC over your home network to access the scanned files, or you could potentially email them to yourself from the PC.  That might be your best bet.

Hope this helps!

Networking a Printer on a wireless network

Deanna, if the mfc is not that old, take it back to the dealer and ask for changing it to a wireless printer (extension: CW). Do you really need the fax function? If not, try this printer: DCP 750CW. If yes, get the MFC 845 CW. The CN printer have to be connected directly to router or pc/laptop.
