Unplug it from power and plug it back in. 
if that doesnt work try unplugging it and GENTLY try moving the ink carrage to make sure it isnt in some odd position that the porinter cannot detect. 
IF the carrage is properly seated on the one side of the printer it is normal for it to be locked and seated on pads that keep the ink from drying out.

Fifteen Flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized.
Possible causes are as follows:
- The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
- The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment.

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.

Printer isn't functioning


While using my printer, it appeared to shut itself down. The power button did not work. I called Canon and the service rep instructed me to disconnect the power cord from both ends (from the printer and the outlet (for 5 to 10 minutes). When I reconnected the printer, the printer worked fine. The rep stated the machine will do this rather than become damaged from a power surge. Hope this helps.

Printer Sharing


Hi jammin dave,

There are certainly known issues with sharing a printer installed on an XP machine to a Vista machine. First question is whether you have Windows Live OneCare installed. This in itself causes known sharing problems.
