    I have the same problem, however, my printer is older than three months. I use the printer sparingly, what a disappointment now that I need it for college. I have tried to change ink, but there is no response when lifting the cover for access.

    Same problem, no power, no lights, nothing. Checked power connections, seems like everything is ok. My MP530 printer was purchased in January of 2007.

    Same problem...bought it within the past year and now power cord is acting inconsistantly...must have been a bad batch of cords they bought. I poked and twisted the cord and tried it again, this time, Voila! It works.



    Am asking them to send another cord.

    I had similar problem today. Based on comments here - took off power cord a couple times and put it back on. Second time it worked. Thanks!

This just happened to our Canon MP530, which was about 10 months old. I called Canon support and they said they'd send a new power cord to us. Then, if that didn't work, they said they'd replace the unit. Well, turns out we found a replacement power cord ourselves and tried it - amazingly, the printer now works. So if this happens to your unit, try replacing the power cord. It may just fix the problem.

Error code U052. I know this has to do with the chip in the ink cartridge. I changed all cartridges and still the same code. I cannot use any function on this MP530 with this error code.


Please remove all cartridges. Using a moist cloth clean the golden contacts on cartridge as well as printer. DO NOT touch nozzle of cartridge. Dont insert the cartridge yet.

Please do this :
1. Remove the power cable from printer. Remove the USB cable that connects printer to computer (remove it from printer as well as computer's usb port)
2. Press the printer power button and keep pressed for 3 minutes then release
3. Now plug in the power cable and usb cable (connect printer to computer) and power on the printer.

Now insert cartridges and see if error goes away.

We are moving and need the MP530 to operate wireless and wish to buy the interface through the router; does a (say) five year old MP530 support a wireless interface?


This model printer has only an USB printer connection.
To connect this printer to a wireless network, you need additional equipment, a print server with an USB pirnter connection and then connect this printer server to a wireless router using a LAN cable.
It may be easier to purchase a new printer with wireless connectivity.

My computer screen displays "service error 5C10". Switching on and off does not help.


Its may be due to Incorrect cartridge detection. please try following.
its worth trying this aswell:

1, Power off the printer

2, Unplug the printer's power cord, wait 5 seconds then replug the power cord in.

3, Hold the Power button for 6 Beeps

4, Release the Power Button

This will reset the printer and should resolve incorrect cartridge detection problems

I have an MP530 printer - error message 5C10 is


You could try resetting the printer:

1) On the panel, press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display goes blank (approx. 1 second). If the display does not go blank, unplug the power cord.

2) Wait approx. 10 seconds, plug in the power cord (if removed in previous step), press the <On/Off> button to power on the unit.

3) Wait for the printer to cycle through its startup routine before trying another print job.

I hope this helps!

Paper jam message but no jam seen. Have unplugged from computer and wall. Shut off x 20 minutes. Alarm light shuts off momentarily and then reappears with first printed page.


Paper can be jammed internally.

1) Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable.
2) Open the rear cover. Look for a jam or even little scraps of paper from a previous jam that may be obstructing the paper path.
3) On the front, remove the tray and look into this area. Make sure it is free of any obstructions.
4) Replace tray.
5) Reconnect the USB cable. Power ON.

I hope this helps!

Will not print because paper always jams


Perhaps there is paper still jammed inside the printer that you cannot see (or little bits from a previous jam)

1) Turn off the power
2) Disconnect the power cord and USB cable
3) Open the rear cover and see if paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Gently remove any paper and make sure no little bits of paper are left inside
4) Open the scanning unit (printer cover) and check that no paper is stuck internally. Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.
5) Reattach the power cord and USB cable
6) Power On and retry your print job
