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

1 Answer

My Canon MP530 leaves an ink strip on the back of the paper I print. I have followed the instructions for cleaning without success. After about 4 pages the strip disappears until you stop printing for a while then it reappears.

    You said one expert proposed a solution to my prolem.
    You said I will provide a solution for $10.

    After I paid $10 you said you will find a solution and email it to me. You did not have one expert that proposed a solution you wanted the $10 to look for a solution. Very misleading, I am still waiting for the one expert that proposed the solution!!!

    After I paid the $10 you said

Well this stain of the ink on the back of the paper may be because of this reason there is a waste tank that eventually gets full after all the printhead tests it does after each print job and on each startup.
So to solve it you might have to take it out and empty it and then dry it off

I myself have solved this problem with my HP printer in an unususall way cause i ealier tried to clean it with paper towel, which actually did not helped

I lifted the printer off the 2nd paper tray and saw a huge puddle of ink on top of the 2nd paper tray which supported my suspicion of a full waste ink tank.
I carefully took the printer in the bath keeping it level to avoid dripping ink. In the bath I tilted it on the side where it was leaving ink stains and a large quantity of ink poured out.
I then ran the shower so water streamed under the printer to clean the bottom of it until the water at the other side started to be clear.
I then put the printer on paper towels and back on the 2nd paper tray. I left all lids open for several hours for it to dry.
I then plugged it back in and no more endless stains on the prints!
So there is a waste tank that eventually gets full after all the printhead tests it does after each print job and on each startup. I would have thought the ink would evaporate out of the waste tank or that HP would have had something to prevent this issue, after all 200 000 prints in 3 years is quite a bit less than the recommended use for this printer

Well i have a mp530 and the magna color will not work carttridge is full and being recognized by the computer as being their but it wont come out on paper.


Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- the "jet" part of the printer stucks (omit the 't' -- FIXYA would "*****" the word without the 't') ink from the ink-cartridge, and when *NOT* "clogged", should spray the ink onto the paper. Being "clogged", it needs to be "unclogged".

MP530 all in one printer - bought Staples magenta & blue inks but printer won't print those colors but did print older Canon inks not needing replacing; bought new Canon magenta & blue inks but...


What you can do is take the ink cartridges out of the print head and remove the printhead. Hold the print head over a trash can and take some 409 cleaner and spray the little pads inside the print head til you start noticing the colors dripping into the trash can. You will them want to dry off the print head as much as possible and litely wipe off the outside and the bottom of the print head with a paper towel. Then reseat the printhead back into the printer and the inks. You will then want to run a nozzle check from your printer software or from the printer properties. If the inks still are not showing up run one or two cleanings. If the issue still persists then you might have to replace the printhead. If this is the case you can look up part number: QY6-0059-000 online to replace the print head.

My Canon MP530 printer has error code of 6A00. Can you help?


Hi there

This answers with a titch more detail.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.
As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.
Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit.
The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model.

And it’s always a paper path error or purge unit.

The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.


That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Also clean the purge unit out make sure all is clean.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Ink leak?


It's not the cartridges, the waste ink is coming up thru the bottom to the exit rollers. The only fix is to have a shop open it up, clean up the ink mess and install a shield that stops the ink from coming back up when it should go to the absorbers. The new machines all have this shield and the ink tube cut back to make the ink go where it should.

The PGBK cartridge seems to be leaking and leaves a smear of ink all the way down the paper on the opposite side of the print.


That's ink from the cleaning station backing up thru the exit rollers. You need a shop to clean up the extra ink and install a shield that will prevent that in the future.

Band of ink on back of printed page


The exit rollers need to be cleaned, but whats happening is ink is coming from the bottom onto the rollers. It needs to come apart and be cleaned and a mylar strip put in to keep the ink from coming up. A shop repair usually.

Canon PIXMA MP530 Error Code 5100


OK. It sounds like there's something on the carriage bar restricting the movement of the ink carrier. Perhaps some ink got on the bar.
Try taking a clean lintfree rag dampened with rubbing alcohol and clean the bar. This may have to be repeated a number of times to get the foreign matter off the bar and the ink carriage.
Let me know if this helps. iF it does not we can try something else.
Thanks.

Canon mp530 prints black 1/4" line on back


But some time when you get the chance do clean the waste tank out.
 
  1. Start with printer off

  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click "Power" button. Green led should be on

  3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.

  4. Without releasing the Power Button, click "Resume" button for two times and release Both Buttons.

  5. Click "Resume" for four times then soon click "Power" button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).

  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Wide black streak on back of printed paper


Hi,

it is not directly coming from the head. Probably you are printing your photos without borders. This means that the printer prints slightly beyond he paper. As a consequence is sprays ink on the mechanics and after a while it starts to smear on the back of the paper.

This phenomenon is even mentioned in the printer manual (kind of caution when selecting borderless printing).

There is a menu item in the printer utilities that lets you clean the printer mechanics with a folded paper. I tried this, but it helps only little.

I have the same effect on a pixma IP 4500 , and I live with it.

Cheers

Canon MP530 error code "5C10" ?


I had a similar problem. I replaced all the ink cartridges and cleaned the printer.  I checked the nozzles to be sure that they were clean and cleaned the area where the cartridges set.  It took a little while but my printer is working again.  Mine makes a clicking sound after you push the copy button but still pulls the paper through.  Does yours pull the paper through at all?
