Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Ink Cartridges are full:
- Magenta tank shows light off - pressed properly/ light goes off
- Alarm light is on, Turn Power on & Off, Alarm light stays on - Printer doesn't print.
Any ideas how to fix it, before I buy ink cartridges?
I added my post today with the same problem, and thought I'd share what I since learned. Apparently this "Alarm light/U150" is common with several Canon models. The U150 indicates a faulty electronic chip (on the ink cartridge). Though I tried cleaning the sensor with isopropyl alcohol, and also tried removing all the cartridges, unplugging the printer for 45 seconds, then reconnecting,etc. as I had read might help, I still had the same frustrating problem. Contacting Canon was the solution that worked for me. First I emailed, but decided I didn't want to wait for their response. A call to Canon Tech Support (1-800-385-2155) was quick and painless. They will more than likely send you a new cartridge, but you'll need to have your serial # & date of purchase handy.

I have a Canon MP530 printer. Alarm light is on. Message on says" Paper Jam, Remove paper." There is no paper jammed. I've spent almost 1hr 30mins trying to find any paper jammed in the rollers, but there's nothing.
I'm so frustrated and am giving up. Please can you guide to a clear solution.

I just had the error message V130 - check ink cartridge. I held down the stop/reset button for about 5-10 seconds and the problem was solved!

I have had the same problem with my MP530. I called Canon technical support. I do not have my receipt for the printer and don't know the date of my purchase, but they waived the $9.99 technical support fee after I politely asked, "You are going to charge me $10 to help me fix something that's wrong with YOUR product???" I was having the problem with my cyan tank and repeatedly getting the U150 error reading. Apparently the sensor chip is faulty on some of the tanks we buy -- in my case two that I've bought from Staples. The technical support guy is going to have one sent to me from a Canon facility in SC, and says that one should work. But I'm thinking I also need to return the ones I purchased from Staples since they are obviously faulty. And hope that I don't continue to get faulty ones when I replace my ink in the future.
If the ink cartridge sent to me from Canon doesn't work, then I'll call Canon again and take it from there...
