Did you delete all printers before instaling drivers so that you would have a clean printer install .

delete all printers first from control panel via printers and other hardware. then reload printer drivers for this printer.

Error Code UO43

the wire strip that connects to the printing cartrige is probably brole or just comming out of its plug
try to push the wire strip back in and see if that does any good , if not then there is a problem inside of the printer
the wire strip is broke or comming unpugged or the detection circut that sees the cartriges has failed and needs repair
hope that helps!

Canon mp530 getting error message 6a00

HI Guys 6A00 error usually cant't be fixed according to the service centre, I was lucky and actually bought an extended warranty, the service centre said that the MP530 are a good printer and worth fixing as they don't see many at all compared to other models and other brands. There was a broken piece of hardware that something to do with the print carriage. cheers vailey

Cyan cartridge

My IP4200 started doing this about a week ago it tells me I have two Cyan cartridges. I don't, cartridges are canon cartridges and were changed four months ago worked fine until now. Pressing the middle button the resume button is working eventually, so far, but I don't know for how long. Seems like a hardware problem as I deleted and reinstalled the software no difference and everything worked fine for the first four months.
