Tried solution to change to USB Cable. Replaced


This mostly occurs due to some paper quality.

* Try replacing some different Quality of papers
* Try cleaning the Heads of the printer through the maintainece software provided by canon.

Canon muti-pass MP360 INK TANK FULL

I believe what you are seeing is "WASTE INK TANK FULL"? This means that the tank that collects the waste ink from cleaning the head is full. You can read more than you ever want to know on this subject on the following link: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/38697#1 These are the steps to clear the message by reseting the counter: 1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset 2)Select Test mode which is like the last available selection 3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some other options this is where it gets a bit confusing cause now all it says is like 8-2 or 8-3 push the + or - button until it says 8-3 then hit the select button The menu will now say EEPROM Clear Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set Your done!

How to fix waste in full

Peel too many apples for a Thanksgiving pie, and the "waste" (the apple-peels) will fill your garbage-bin. So, you have to empty-out the garbage-bin, or replace the full garbage-bin with a brand-new _empty_ garbage bin.

Print too many pages, and the "waste" ink will fill the miniature waste-bin inside the printer. Take the printer to a qualified technician, and have him/her either empty the bin, or replace the sponge in the bin with a fresh sponge.

After cleaning the head on our MP500 there are still streaks

This is more than likely a ink cartridge failure. If you are using after market/or refilled ink cartridges, I would try an OEM cartridge to clear the problem. The non-OEM ink has probably clogged the nozzle.
Change the cartridges, run a deep cleaning on all colors, run alignment and the test page. The problem should clear up.
Sometimes non-OEM inks are not up to specifications and cause this problem.
Let me know if this clears the problem.
Please make sure to rate this solution. Thanks.

How to change the Print head

You take out all the cartridges, then raise the leaver on the left and side of the carrage that the ink cartridges sit in with one hand, and you will find that you can gently lift out the print head with the other hand. Quite easy really. Why do you need to get it out?

There is a white vertical streak on pages I print.

You can pull out each cartridge and shake it gently to redistribute the toner. Try a half page test to eliminate the various stages of the image formation. The timing on this is not easy but through trial and error it can be helpful.

MP530 Print Cartidge Problems

Hi shortiered,

Sounds like your orginal driver installation has become corrupted. Try this: completely remove unit and its software from your computer, not forgetting to unplug all cables. Go to the folling url(copy and paste in the address bar) for the latest software for your unit. It's easiet if you create a new folder on your desktop and name it mp530 drivers, save down load here. Install software first, reboot and plug your cables in, windows will reconize new hardware and install it for you or it may ask if you have installation disk or installation file, click yes and direct download to the folder you created for your new drivers. I hope this helped a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerly, cyyyd7
