Canon MP530 printer's in use/memory light blinks and clicks

On my canon MP530 printer, the ''in use/memory'' light blinks and clicks. My computer doesn't recognize it.

History: Printer was working fine, then my computer got hit with a virus and I had to reformat my drive and reinstall everything. I go thru the printer install process from my CD and when i am suppose to turn it on and plug in the usb port, the computer doesn't see it attached.

I just noticed that I had the telephone cable connected to the "Telephone" port on the back of the Fax/Printer. When I switched it to the "Line" port, suddenly the clicking stopped and the Memory/In Use light went off. Now we will see if I can Fax something. Hope this works for you too!

Canon Pixma MP530 multifunction printer comes up as a fax

This is absolutely the right solution. I used this for my Canon MP780 printer under Vista, as well. I want to include all of the keywords here. It is important to note that the DPR-1260 shipped with Firmware Version 1.12 cannot be seen by Visa until it is upgraded with the Version 1.21 firmware, but after downgrading back to the Version 1.12 firmware, the DPR-1260 is still visible and it now recognizes my Canon MP780 multifunction printer as a printer and not as a fax machine. I plan to post this same solution to other sites, so that hopefully others can get their DPRs working again. Whew!
