Question about Canon PIXMA MP520 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

NO I have the same problem as listed here "the canon pixma MP520. It says there's a paper jam but I can't clear it and the paper wonlt go through. I've got a horrible feeling something fell in and got wedged deep inside. I've used a torch but can't seee any problem at either end. I've turned it upside down but can't hear anything loose. How can I get a look inside to clear this?" but I have done all I can. I can see the paper jamming but I can not see why. I have turned it up on one end and have cleaned the rollers and have reset it several times but nothing works.

You can try putting and index card or something stiff like that back thru the paper path to push back whatever is stuck. Look real close with your torch thru the spaces in the white guides that are over the long gray platen roller. Also the gray roller could have scratch marks in the area where the object is jammed. Be careful not to push back the sensor lever that is on the right side behind the white guides.

Hi,

The error 5700 is as follows:
This error takes place when feeding paper

Make sure that there is no paper jammed in the printer and nothing is blocking the paper path.

Can I use 67 lb paper with my canon pixma mp520 printer


There should be a setting for thick cardstock or envelope that you may have to change to in yoour "prefenrences" settings. I have used heavy paper in my Canon ip3500 with no problems.

It says "Check printer" error message "6A00".


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.

Canon MP520 can print but not scan


I had the same problem. The all-in-one driver download doesn't include the stuff you need for the scanner. Go to this link (canon), click "OSX" on the dropdown list for what os you're using, then click "mp520sosxsd1391ej7.dmg" under "MP520 series Scanner Driver Ver. 13.9.1 (Mac OS X 10.2/10.3/10.4/10.5/10.6)." It doesn't take long to download and completely fixes the problem.

The only way to get inside it, is to strip it down (there's screws on the bottom). However, I wouldn't recommend doing this yourself unless you are absolutely sure you can put it back together again. Instead, if possible, lift the access flap (where you normally put the printer cartridges), and see if you can see anything in there (you should be able to roll the print roller yourself from there aswell).

Two-sided printing


On a PC...
- Ctrl + p to print
- Choose the Canon MP530 if it's not already selected
- Click Properties button
- Page Setup tab
- Select Duplex Printing

My paper always gets jammed, so I always uncheck the Automatic checkbox. Hopefully you won't have to do that.

Good luck.
