Canon MP530 won't copy

I have installed a refilled Pgi5 cartridge and have got it to print from my computer but it won't copy! I pressed and held the reset button and it accepted the cartridge. Why can't I do a straight copy? Thanks. John.

I'm trying to use refilled ink cartridges in my Canon MP530, but I get a V (or U) 130 error message. Any thoughts?


An ink tank that was once empty is installed.
Replace the ink tank.
Printing under the situation may damage the Print Head.
Canon shall not be liable for any machine malfunction or damage caused
by refilled ink tanks.
If you want to continue printing with the refilled ink tank installed, press
and hold the [Stop/Reset] for at least 5 seconds, and then release it. Using
refilled ink tanks are memorized.
* This operation will release the function for detecting the remaining ink

i am not sure but is working on 520
1. print mono or print color for color
  1. Switch the printer OFF
  2. Press buttons 1 + 2 + 3 and 4 (simultaneously using four fingers)
  3. Keep pressing this four buttons for 10 seconds
  4. Release the On/Off button (number 4) (Keeping pressing the others)
  5. After a few seconds (when the printer go ON) you can release buttons 1, 2, 3
  1. Maybe step "c)" is not needed
  2. This procedure was used when I refilled the Black cartridge - try using the ColorCopy button instead of BlackCopy button (number 1) if you refill Color cartridge.
  3. Maybe there is no need for all the four buttons - you can try 1 + 4, 2 + 4 or 3 + 4. (or 1+2+4, 1+3+4, 2+3+4)

I can't afford new ink for my Canon MP530 just yet, but want to still use the scanner? Is this possible?

yes it is possible, you have 2 solutions for your problem.
1. Refill the cartridge and use it refilled.
2. Dont refill the cartridge and use it like that. BUT when the erro E 1 6 appears you will find on the printers control board you have a buton that is called Resume/Cancel, it is the buton near the copy black and copy color butons. You can recognize it by the red triangle in a red circle.
Press this buton for at least 10 seconds, if the error is not gone from the first time press and hold the buton for at least 10 seconds for the second time.
Now the printer will have the ink level counter disabled but do not worrie it will worj just as well.

Won't scan. alarm light is on say's out of ink but has been refilled all buttons when pushed dubble beep.

Your refilled cartridge didn't get the ink level chip reset. Your printer will refuse to print, scan, copy, etc.. until you replace the cartridge that's "empty." I would return the cartridge to the refiller you purchased it from and buy a refill from Cartridge World. These simple problems do not happen with Cartridge World refills.

This printer prints black and white and color. The PGI5 is the black cartridge and the CLI8s are the color cartridges.

Cartridge jammed

So here it goes: Open the cover as if you would change the cartridge. Then press the little black button I highlighted in the picture. Keep it pressed, push “copy” on the left and then the (print) black button on the right of the lcd. The printer will somehow work and work. Wait until it rests again. Then close the cover and press the black button again. Now it should copy… and print, and so on.
