Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have A Canon Pixma MP-530 Printer,Fax,Copy Machine that's a couple of years old. It recently started making some weird loud grinding noises although it's still functioning okay. Would anyone know what that is and if it can be fixed or should I just wait 'til the machine implodes and get a new one.

On the Canon Pixma MP-530 printer, there are rubber rollers controlled by sprockets and belts.

If you hear loud grinding noises coming from it, consider yourself lucky that it hasn't come to a 'grinding' halt.

I think you should have it fixed by an authorized service center for Canon, if you have the extended warranty. Otherwise, it is probably not cost effective to have it repaired.

I would do the latter, wait for the machine to implode and get a new one, unless it has sentimental value to you.

Cheers.

Best bet would be to wait till it blows up or even purchase another now so when it does go out you dont have to wait long but maintenance on a machine of that age is always gonna be more costly than finding a new one

hope this helps

My canon pixma mp530 makes a loud noise most times when it powers up and when i print a document. It works OK otherwise.


My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.

Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Can't use the fax on my Canon MP 530


There are 2 ports on the rear, 1 for the incomming phone line, and one to plug in a telephone handset (passthrough) if the telephone line is plugged into the wrong port, the fax machine is unable to dial properly, So try plugging into the other port on the back, it's just next to the other port hope this helps
