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

1 Answer

I have a canon Pixma MP530 and I'm having problems with the print quality. Especially on photographs, the black bleeds. On some text it looks like someone has scribbled (faintly) over the words. Canon say it's not the printer but the software, so I've reloaded the software and it's made no difference. Any solutions???? Thanks

Hi there I have the original canon cartridges in the printer and they all have lots of ink in them, but suddenly when printing the 'black' parts of a photograph looks purple. But when I print text in...


When you are printing a photograph, the back is resultant of combination of RGB but when you print a latter of document it usages only the black ink. So since the black is properly printed when it's combining RGB that means any of the color is low on ink. Replacing the color cartridge will solve the problem for you.

This Canon MP530 will print a nozzle check with no problems. It will color copy with no problem. No ink cartridge lights are on. It will not print a report or copy in black. What's wrong?


On your nozzle check, do you see the grid at the top (indicated by red arrow in picture below)? If you don't see this, your pigment black nozzles aren't working. The black bar at the bottom is from the dye black nozzles (small black tank). You may have either plugged nozzles or a bad print head.

After numerous cleaning cycles the nozzles on my Pixma MP970 still show streaked patterns when printing the nozzle check. This printer has always has had poor print quality mainly black text. We got it as...


It will need a new printhead, QY6-0062-000, around $80.00. Leaving it sit and not printing just makes the problem worse, as more nozzles on the printhead get plugged. You get 90 day warranty with refurbished units and if it started out crappy you should have had a shop look at it, that model can print super photos! A new printhead will bring it back to life.

Hi,
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.

Mac Problem printing Photos


Since I didn't hear back from you, I'm going to assume that like MOST Mac fans, you have Leopard... as does my son (and we have the same printer)...
There are software updates available from Canon (as recent as 2/17) that you'll need in order to have the functions you're missing. Here's the link:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct

You especially want the "EasyPhotoPrint EX" as it will give you the color management support.

Good Luck!
