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

1 Answer

Canon MP530 Purchased the printer 9/06; Worked fine. It is plugged into a power surge bar. Yesterday there was an instant loss of power(the printer was turned on at that time). Everything else came back on that was electrically connected with the exception of the printer. There is no response from the printer's on/off switch. What happened to the printer?

It may need to be reset or the worse the power surge blew out its memmory chips inside the printer. printers come with an amount of memmory about 4 to 8 megs so that it can remember print jobs try a test page after you leave unpluged for half hour
the printer should be able reset itself

Tip

No Power? Do this.


My PIXMA MP530 seemed unable to get power. I checked all the connections and couldn't get it going. A call to Canon was to result in them sending me a new printer until after a second call I got a technician who suggested the following and it worked!

Unplug the printer and wait at least an hour. After an hour plug it directly into a working socket.

Apparently there is a transformer that has to have the unplugged time to be able to reset (or something).

Anyway it worked and saved me a whole lot of hassle.

Wont power on


In the shop we would take out the printhead and see if it powers up. If it does, the printhead is bad. If it's stuck on the right the only way to remove is to take apart the printer.

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.
