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

1 Answer

How come the colours end so easily

Hey there, i'm the owner of a Canon MP530 & a Canon PixmaIP 4300. The colours end pretty soon at both. You may not believe me when i'm saying that even though i only printed black & white, i'm out of red, blue & yellow too...

How can this be possible.

I've never seen anything like that before

What should i do ? Can i do something to avoid this ?

    SOLUTION 2:



    ----------------------------------------



    Black is not black, the Canon printers use the other inks to
    create shades of black and grey.








    So in short it is completely normal and there is little you can
    do with it.

It's using the color cart to print black.

      • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.



    1. Click on the Main tab.


    2. Select 'Plain Paper' as the Media Type. If any other paper type is selected, color ink will be used to create black.



      Note: The pigment black ink will only be used when printing on plain paper.


    3. Select the box for 'Grayscale Printing'. If the document to be printed is in black only, then this step may be skipped.



      Note: If either 'Borderless Printing' or 'Duplex Printing' are enabled from the Page Setup tab, grayscale will be created using a combination of the color (dye) inks to prevent smearing.


    4. Click 'OK' to save the changes.

    The printer will now only use the pigment black ink tank.

Canon pixma mp530 not printing colour. The cartridges are new, when I print an alignment, no colour prints, only the black and white. I've performed a clean, deep clean, print head alignment, nozzle...


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Canon mp530 - colors print dull and faded


The ink tanks may be full but sometimes the pins that connect the cartridges to the printer may have dried up ink on them preventing the ink from flowing. You can try to swab these with a bit of rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and letting it dry for moment or two. I would strongly suggest doing a couple of deep cleanings first and try test printing of the individual colours separately in a program such as paint to see which colour is affected.

I don't know how to get my scanner to work with my computer. Its an hp Pavilion computer and a Canon MP530.


When you boot up your computer the operating system is displayed as a huge colourful Icon. It may be Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or even Windows 98 or Windows Me. That is the OS or operating system you are running. we know you are using a Canon MP530 scanner so we just need to know what OS you are using so we can download the soltware you need to install it. hp Pavilion

I just received a fax on my mp530 and it said received in memory. How do I print it out?


I have a Canon MP but not your model. Try this.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/Communications/Fax/Fax Console

Then click Inbox, double click the fax and print it if you wish. There are options to print as soon as the fax is received, or you can send faxes to Desktop, or both options.

Chip/no chip issue for Canon Pixma MP530


the printer NEEDS ink cartridge WITH the chip
BUT, you can move the chip from the old to the new cartridge, you just lose the ability to monitor ink level....you have to visually check it from time to time
been doing it for months now... works fine, just keep a close eye on the ink when it starts to get low, can hose the printhead for that color if empty
printheads run around $55 or so - so actually, savings in ink will easily pay for a new printhead every now and then, if you screw up  :)

How do I change ink cartridge?


You have a lid on your computer?

Just kidding....when you open the printer, make sure you have the power ON, that should slide the print cart(s) out and you should be able to figure it out pretty easily from there.
