As best I can tell from the User's Guide (available here if you don't have it), page 146, 5100 is a Service Error indicating that the print head is blocked/can't move. Remove power from the machine, open the top and check carefully inside to see if there are any pieces of paper or other items which may be blocking the print head from moving back and forth.

If you still have the same error after reapplying power, the unit probably needs to be serviced. You can use this link to find an authorized service facility near you. Give them a call and see if they can give you an estimate for repair.

Semper Fi Devildog, and good luck.

Can't receive fax. MP530is set on DRPD. Phone


DR is for distinctive ring, do you actually have distinctive ring from your phone company? Have you set the matching pattern into the Canon? It will only answer when it is sent the proper ring, unless you turn off distinctive ring.

First try one step. The line which you have connected with the Fax, unplug any other phone from that line.
Call that number and see whether it rings or you get a fax tone.

I just received a fax on my mp530 and it said received in memory. How do I print it out?


I have a Canon MP but not your model. Try this.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/Communications/Fax/Fax Console

Then click Inbox, double click the fax and print it if you wish. There are options to print as soon as the fax is received, or you can send faxes to Desktop, or both options.

Pixma MP530 Fax Problems


I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!
