Canon MP530 Scanning

Q: Canon MP530 Scanning

Can anyone help with the following problem?
When I use the scanning function, the image (text) I get is almost unreadable in the preview pane. Transferring it to email, it still remains the same.
Some time ago I checked with Canon support and they advised me to adjust the MAPI settings in the email program. Got no idea what they are talking about. I don't think it is an email problem as the scan is not successful before sending it to Outlook.
I have adjusted various settings, but the scan is the same - unreadable.
Has anyone else had this problem, and, any suggestions?
Thanks

help...
i have a Canon MP530, and it worked great for about a month and now it makes this awful grinding noise when it's warming up etc. the tech at canon said to take all the ink cartridges out and lift up the bar that holds the cartridge case down, then remove it, and put it back together again. well, it didn't help, so he said i'd have to take it in, or mail it in. i never have time to do that, and it doesn't affect the printing, it's just loud and annoying. anyone got any ideas?

There is a firmware upgrade from Nov 08 that might be applicable since it specifically is for FAX problems. There is a list of serial numbers that need the firmware upgrade – be sure to read the instructions as firmware can be tricky. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/c...tegoryid=2613&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct

The latest driver is 1.10 from 2006 that is probably already what you are using.

Probably your best approach for resetting everything to default is to just uninstall the software and reinstall it. If that doesn’t work you would want to check “Printers and Faxes” & “Cameras and Scanners” to make sure they are removed and also look in Program Files to remove any residual folder left by the software. Usually an uninstall and reinstall works fine.

I take it you read the manual and set the machine to FAX/TEL Auto SW.

I take it you have a “land” line for your phone – a LAN is a local network. If it is a DSL line you usually don’t want the regular phone filter on the modem connection. The hookup varies according to the type of DSL – Canon recommends contacting the DSL provider.

If it is just a regular phone connection you could have a poor line connection. I had some modem problems many years ago and also had a little noise on the phone. The phone company traced the problem and I had no more modem problems. The firmware is supposed to help with tha... Read more

Has anyone been able to get a Canon USB printer (MP530) to work if their system drive is anything other then C:\

Doing a complete re-format for a printer seems asinine.

I see the "USB port" file created in what would be the C:\ drive (C:\USB port), but the registry has no knowledge of it as that I would just move it to the system drive and edit the registry to point to it.

Any ideas other then the obvious of reformat/re-install?
 

A:Canon MP530 & system drive other then C:\

You'll find many programs demand there be a C drive, there's no way to re-assign the that drive letter without nasty registry hacks and they don't usually work anyway and sometimes end up corrupting the system and rendering it unbootable.

The trick to avoiding this is to disconnect any and all removable media drives from the computer prior to installing Windows.

I have two laptops and a desktop to which the laptops are wirelessly connected. All are running Vista 64 except the one laptop which is running Vista 32. The MP530 is USB connected to the desktop. I can print from the desktop just fine and, until a couple of days ago, I could print from both laptops. One laptop seems to trigger a failure of the driver to work on both the laptop and the desktop. If I restart the desktop the printer works fine until I try to print from the laptop. I have reinstalled the printer on the laptop and it prints a test page but nothing else. Any idea on how to cure this?

Hi. I'm new here..wonder if someone can answer this. My Canon MP 530 all in one printer has a feed switch problem. When I flip the switch to the cassette so the paper prints out the bottom (instead of the top feed) even though the switch and light indicates it's in the proper position the paper will only print out from the top. I like to keep regular paper in the bottom and my shipping labels up top. Does anyone know what the problem could be or how to fix this. It was fine yesterday and just started oing this today. Thank you very much.

I recently bought the supposedly excellent Canon MP530 multi-function printer,etc. and went to install it on my WinXP pro machine and . . . nothing. I've spent some time with Canon tech support (some helpful, some not so helpful) but I still can't get the freakin' things to communicate with each other. The consistent result of my installations is "no driver is installed" or "cannot find driver" - even though the driver itself seems to install. Also, when I turn the printer on, I get the New Hardware Wizard, which, I think, means my computer is detecting the printer. It's as if the driver is just not recognized by my computer.
I've installed (and uninstalled) the drivers from both the disc that came with the printer and from the Canon website. I've used two different USB cables. I've tried many combinations of plugging/unplugging, starting/restarting, turning on/off - all to no avail.
I've logged on as the Administrator. I've done my best to shut down any programs or processes- though I think this is tricky, as I don't necessarily know what each thing in my Startup or Services is.

I've received a few error messages, but only when attempting the full installation from the disc. The messages are: "AddPrinterDriverEx Error:2", "AddPrinter Error:1797&... Read more

I have a Dell XPS 8300, WinXP, SP2 (it's 4 years old). The MP530 was installed 6/23/07 and since that day I've been unable to run antispyware/malware scans of my system.

I am using Canon brand cartridges because I don't want to void the warranty so I am NOT playing the chip game (yet). I am getting the message that I have two Magenta cartridges in the printer (I do NOT have two Magenta cartridges in there). This message just started appearing and the light blinks fast on the cartridge. I try taking it out and putting it back in. Also have tried shutting the printer completely off for a minute and turning it back on. Sometimes the message says that it can't recognize the magenta cartridge but then it again tells me that there are two magenta cartridges. I've tried printing in just greyscale but it still won't print. I'm getting quite frustrated with this printer after having it less than 5 months.

Hi, I'm new here. I joined after searching for my problem and finding that some others had had the same problem but that it was either solved or retired.

I'm on a MacBook running the latest version of Snow Leopard, and I can't print to my four-year-old Canon printer (an MP530) because it says I have a paper jam. The error code it gives is 1300. I've searched everywhere in the printer and opened every door I can possibly find, and I haven't found any paper jammed anywhere - or anything else, either. I'm about ready to dump the printer, but perhaps someone here can help me fix this mystery jam.

When I go to print something, the paper feeds in crooked on the left side, and then I get the jam error. I've felt around in the bottom of the paper feed and I can't find any problem or jammed paper there either. I'm using the paper loader on the back of the printer, not the sheet feeder or anything, and I'm using regular cheap office printer paper.

I read on fixyourownprinter.com about checking the purge unit. Is that something I should try?

Thank you for any help you can give me!

Let me start off by saying I did this to myself, I did not pay attention.

I rebuilt my system this week and this morning needed to scan something. So I pluged in my MP530 and downloaded the new driver for windows 7x64. I also grabbed the firmware "update" off their website. Here is the link.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/c...oadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13371

So installed the drivers scanned the documents and printed out a few copies. Everything works fine. Then I remembered oh yeah that firmware update. I did read that if it was a specific model it would not be necessary, but I did not know the firmware version I was running figured it would say "Oh wait sorry but you don't need this." like most other firmware updates. So extraced the files and on I went ran the executable and set the install. Went out to lunch and forgot about it.

When I came back it had errored out, I looked in the to right corner only to then realize I was trying to upgrade from 1.10 to 1.08 and it was not compatible apparently. I figured old firmware is better than no firmware so I tried it again and of course failed again. At this point my printer is not responding at all and so I figured I'd have to call Canon to get the appropriate firmware. They proceed to tell me that they can not give it out. It's a private company firmware that they (Tech Support) can not access and yes it was a supervisors supervisor hat said this.

So what can I do ... Read more

I have a Canon MP530 printer. It's about 2 years old. I don't print pictures with it often, but recently have noticed that printed photos come out with white horizontal lines all down the page, about 1/4 inch apart. I've tried 3 different papers, and the problem is the same with all of them. Any suggestions? I run Windows XP.

Hi All,

My Canon MP530 printer has 2 paper sources; a flat 'cassette' in the base and a near-vertical sheet feeder at the back. There is a button on the front of the printer which allows you to specify where you'd like the printer to take paper from.

When I put 6"x4" photo paper in the cassette, and press the button to specify the cassette, it jumps to the sheet feeder and prints on A4 from there instead. Removing the A4 from the sheet feeder in an attempt to force the printer to use whatever is in the cassette has no effect - it tells me the sheet feeder is out of paper. If I put A4 in the cassette it detects it and prints just fine.

I have been to the printer driver and made sure that the cassette is selected under 'paper source', but this has not helped.

I am using the "Easy Photoprint" software and this allows you to specify your paper size, type etc. I am guessing that this is not a paper pick-up issue (the printer has seen too little use to have coated the pickup wheels, and it picks up A4 ok). I think it is having difficulty detecting the smaller paper size although it used to print 6x4 before without problems.

Anybody know how to fix this? What is the mechanism by which paper is detected, and how might it have failed?

Any assistance gratefully rceived.

About three hours ago I tried printing from Word to my Canon MP530, which has been working just fine since I switched from XP to Win7 in mid-December. I got an error saying that there were no drivers installed.

I tried the Windows Update method to reinstall them - that failed. I went to Canon's site and got the current x64 version of the driver. That supposedly installed, but when I try to print anything including the test page I see 'printer not responding' in the print queue window.

In the Devices & Printers window it tells me I need to troubleshoot it. Running the troubleshooter tells me there's nothing wrong with it.

I tried removing and reinstalling the printer with the same results, also trying the new drivers.

I just got the firmware upgrade from Canon and have installed that; that didn't help either. It still wants me to troubleshoot it, and that has the same results.

We have a Canon imageRunner 1025N multifunction printer/copier/scanner in our office. Up until today, it was directly connected to one of our office computers through a USB cable. Now it's been networked. One of the functions of this printer is that it could scan in documents to the computer. But now that it's networked, the scanner feature seems to no longer be an option. As far as I could tell with the manual, the scanner will not work if it's networked. My question is that if this is true, can a printer be connected to a networked AND connected to a computer through the USB cable at the same time (without any functionality issues) so that we can scan our documents again? Any help would be much appreciated, thank you. (And if there is no one with an answer, any help directing me to where I could find an answer would be appreciated as well since I cannot find how to get help through Canon's website.)
 

A:Canon imageRunner 1025N Scanning Issue

You may just need to reinstall the Canon software from the CD and configure the scanner as being Network connect rather then USB. Also the brochure suggests the unit support Scan to Email and Scan to FTP, you can configure that if its network connected, that's generally how most Xerox units are setup at the sites I visit. The Canon website seems to very lacking, you may have better manuals on the installation CD.

But there should be no reason it can't be connected both ways, however the scan to email or a network drive would be better.

My MP530 printer (Canon color inkjet) has just developed a problem with mono-printing (color printing is fine). For black-and-white pages, it produces BLANK bands across the page, interspersed with normal black printing. The alternating bands of print and blank are about 1/4" each, with the bands running across the page. Printing in HIGH QUALITY works just fine (but takes a much longer time to print a page!) When I run a nozzle check, everything looks great *except* for the PGBK section. For that section, the bottom half of the image look great, and the top half is blank (and it's about 1/2" in width, so is consistent with the banding I'm seeing on print jobs.)

I have tried both Regular and Deep cleaning, several times, and it does not fix the problem.

Any ideas?

I have a Canon i850 printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four+ years. For one thing, I've never had even one paper-jam during that time.

My understanding always has been that it is best to have separate components, so that's why I've always owned a dedicated printer. However, it appears that the present-day trend is more toward all-in-one units. Actually, I'm in the market only for a printer, but if the Canon MP600 all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i850, then I would strongly considering buying one.

The MP600 has a scanner (which I don't need, although it would provide me with a back-up) and it has several modern features of convenience which my i850 doesn't have. What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP600 produces appreciably better results with both text and photos than my i850. Also, would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP600? While quality of results is more important than anything else, speed, economy, and convenience also enter into the equation.

(I was also considering the Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer, but from what I've read so far it appears that the MP600 all-in-one is more highly-regarded.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter. Thank you very much.

Hi
I bought quite a number of refill inks for my Canon S100SP printer. However it stopped working last week. Fixing it will be too dear, and getting a new printer will waste my refills. Do you know any Canon printers which can use the same refill inks as this printer? Perhaps a printer which is faster than this one and uses the same ink?

Thanks
 

A:Canon printers similar to Canon S100SP

Use a Google search with the cartridge models for the ink cartridges you have.

That should turn up compatable models, otherwise we need to reverse the procedure (search to determine the cartridge model, then find what else it fits).

Recently I have found that when I try to import CR2 RAW files on to my hard drive Windows Explorer opens recognises the drive containing my CF card but then tells me it cannot import the files because they have been corrupted. I replace the CF card into
my Camera and it tells me that it does not recognise the card and the images will not show on my Camera. I reformat the CF card in the camera shoot images, see that they can be viewed on the camera but when put the CF card into the reader on the computer I
get told the images are corrupted and cannot be read.
I am therefore unable to now download RAW images to the computer, I have downloaded FastPictureViewer Codec Pack to no avail.

Any steps that I need to take to recover the situation and allow me to import my raw images to this computer.

Hi,
I have an HP Deskjet F4140 all in one, and recently it stopped scanning through Photomart Essential. (Problem for about a month)

Everything else works. I can print, copy, & scan (using the scan button from the printer, so I know the actual scanner is working, but its to light to see the image).

If I load Photomart Essential to do a preview scan, and adjust because the scanner currently scans WAY to light, so you can't see the images, it will do the preview scan, then I adjust it, and click accept...nothing. It just freezes at the "preparing to scan" bar. If I try to exit, I end up getting the not responding error.

I've uninstalled & reinstalled the printer from CD. I've gone to HP and looked for updates, including downloading the latest Photomart Essential 3.5. No luck.

Is there anything else I can do? Or should I just suck it up and buy a new scanner/printer? Since everything else it working it feels like such a shame to buy a new one.

Thank you for any help you can give me

hi,
I ve got an average, run of the mill scanner
it gives great results, but Ive noticed
sometimes the skin tones come out a bit redder than
I would like.

Maybe the paper has something to do with this
eg magazine or newspaper.

Anyway, Im wondering, is there better equipment out
there, maybe more professional.

I want top quality scans, or as good as possible,
If you re going to the trouble of scanning pics it s silly to accept second best.

Looking at my scanner , its so basic, I can t even
see a name on it

The controls via scanner and camera wizard are very
basic too with just colour and brightness to adjust

on slideing scales.

Surely there must be something better out there

It would be interesting to get an opinion or

top results

Hello,
 
I have run every "anti-anything" to try to solve this. I have a laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate and for a while, about 5-10 minutes after booting a scan begins. I can see the HD running non-stop. During this, the laptop is unusable.
 
Today, it started freezing with no HD light. It took almost an hour of rebooting to get it running. During the day, the scanning has happened 4 times. It is driving me crazy and I have checked everything I can think of. I have no scheduled scans of any kind set up in my anti-virus and anti-malware software.
 
As an example of a symptom, if I'm watching a YouTube video, it starts with the video and sound going out of sync. The HD starts running constantly. If I close Firefox, it will take a while to close but the sound from the video keeps playing for several minutes. If I pull up task manager, it will show Firefox as still running but there is no window. I end the task and again it takes several minutes to drop from the task manager window.
 
Any suggestions as where to start to solve this before I check into a mental health facility?

If you asking if you can scan an exe program, then yes, if your antivirus allows it you can use the right click to do an on-demand scan of an individual file, whether the file is a .txt, .pdf, .avi, .jpeg as long as the file exists, seeing as avs can scan corrupted files it will be able to scan it, and if you have an av like comodo or avast, or norton you can run it in a virtualized environment called "sandboxing"

Should one be scanning for viruses and malware in SafeMode always? I have Norton 360 which run while my computer is on but, it does not block malware. I got infected with AV Security Suite and with instruction from Bleeping Computer to remove it but, the malware kept coming back. I finally went into SafeMode and did a complete scan with Malwarebytes and Spybot and was able to remove the malware. Should I also make it a habit to scan weekly?

A:Scanning

Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode designed to start Windows with minimal drivers and running processes to diagnose problems with your computer. This means some of the programs that normally run when Windows starts will not run. Why use safe mode? The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Malware writers create programs that can insert itself and hide in these protected areas when the files are being used. Using safe mode reduces the number of modules requesting files to only essentials which make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files when performing scans with anti-virus and anti-malware tools. In most cases, performing your scans in safe mode speeds up the scanning process. Why not use safe mode? Some security tools like anti-rootkit scanners (ARKs) and programs with anti-rootkit technology use special drivers which are required for the scanning and removal process. These tools are designed to work in normal mode because the drivers will not load in safe mode which lessens the scan's effectiveness. Other security tools are optimized to run from normal mode where they are most effective. For example, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is designed to be at full power when malware is running so safe mode is not necessary when using it. In fact, MBAM loses some effectiveness for detection and removal when used in safe m... Read more

And why so slow. It used to scan fast

Does that mean my hard drive is slowing down. I have ran i defrag last 30 days.

A:scanning

The scanning speed is usually associated with system performance. If you have multiple applications open at the same time as the scan, it will slow down significantly. The newer versions of Mcafee eventually require more resources than the previous iterations. I suggest thus that you close any unnecessary applications and try scanning again.

I have some garden equipment manuals that I need to scan but when I scan them, details on the black and white photos do not come through clearly.

Most are so black or blurred that details such as the location of a nut or bolt are not visible. The text scans just fine.

I am scanning at 600 dpi in the "line art" on a Microtek i800 scanner but my HP 6100 scanner does the same thing. This is the mode they recommend for best black and white scanning.

Is there some way to get more details to show?

Thanks

What do you want to know about it Rich, I have it installed and it does a good job. I have the free version but it keeps track of what you have installed and will tell you if any are out of date and give you the solution to fix the problem.

Hi everyone,
 
I was just wondering how would one go about protecting themselves from autorun viruses coming from a passport/usb/what have you? Since I've read Grinler's list of trustworthy software and have been trying to secure myself from malware since my previous virus troubles Now I've recovered, malwarebytes found a trojan in one of my passports and succesfully deleted the file, my antivirus says all clear too.
 
What's a good way to protect myself from any possible autoruns; is bitdefender usb good? And are normal scanners good for cleaning portables too?
Thanks in advanced. ^^

A:USB protection and scanning

I can recommend you MCShield for protection from malware that spread via removable drives. Unlike Bitdefender or Panda USB Vaccine that only block autorun.inf , MCShield has various tehniques (desktop.ini , lnk exploit , conficker method and so on) to find and remove malware. It is very light on resources an can work with any other security software.

I am scanning a series of color pictures on my Astraslim scanner.
I found on the accessories of my winXP a feature called Scanner and Camera Wizard which enables efficient scanning, but it allows to scan only one item at a time. After scanning and saving a picture I must go back and load the Wizard again in order to scan another picture.
I couldn?t find any instructions at Microsoft support or Windows Help
Is it possible to scan a series of pictures continuously from the scan screen of the Wizard, and if so, how to configure it?
Please advise
Thanks

I'm looking around to purchase a scanner with the thought in mind that if I purchase one that will except slides, I can scan a ot of old black and white negs I have. I was thinking that in Paint Shop Pro I then could reverse it into a positive and then touch it up. Has anyone tried this? To me it seems like a new idea but maybe it's old. Input? Samples? Suggested reading?
Thanx!

Hi all. I have a problem with scanning for viruses. i previously had problems on windows xp, now i have windows 7. and still having the same problem. When i start my virus scanner, eset nod 32, it just stops and the computer freezes. as i mentioned before, i had the same problem with windows xp, thats why i upgraded to windows 7. previous antiviruses had done that too, malware bytes and microsoft security essentials. any reason why it does that? i have windows 7 ultimate, intel core 2 duo clocked at 1.8ghz, 1gb of ram and intel X3100 gpu.

Hello, Hope i can clearly explain. I'm running Win XP. I recently had a virus problem ( folks were getting ads from my email address)
I normally have Avast as my anti virus, but when my computer started slowing down I bought/down loaded:
Spybot, Malwarebyte's anti malware, CC Cleaner, Advanced system care, Wise registry cleaner, Reg cure, and possible one more I forget . Running these programs seems to have solved most of my problems, except that my computer has begun to run scans, not sure what is running, every four-five minutes. I disabled most of the programs I named, rather set them to run manually..rather than automatically. Still, I can't figure what it is that is running. As I write this I can hear drive whirring as it begins another scan. Would running the prog Hijackthis possible point out what is going on with my computer? Sorry for long-windedness, would appreciate any suggestions. thanks

A:Non-stop scanning

You have way too many tools running and reg cleaners that are doing more harm then good. Do not install HJT or anything else please. Do not uninstall anything yet eitherTry shutting down thw machine and see if they stop. Did you scan with Malwarebyte's and get a log that you can post?The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Before spring file cleaning, I have downloaded and run Avira Free Antivirus v.13 to check my almost full 2 TB of files. I have armed myself with patience, as I wasn't expecting a full system scan to complete in less than 5 hours, and here I am, 6 hours and 38 minutes later at 81% of the task. As (6x60+38)/81 x 19 equals an 1.5 hours left, I have decided to use this time to investigate a rather mysterious issue: how come during this scan is my hdd idling around 10 MBps (3%) while my cpu is also comfortably at rest at 30% with 0 peaks. Where is the bottleneck that causes such abysmal performance? Maybe someone could give me an answer. Isn't 10 MBps a little low? I have a Q6600/2.4GHz CPU, 8GB DDR2/1066, 2 X 1TB hdds in raid 0, able to read between 100 and 300 MBps. And this is my first post.  Hi everybody!Edit: Moved topic from All Other Applications to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:What is my antivirus doing when scanning if cpu below 30% and hdd below 5%?

I can't speak for the actual data rate from your equipment.  One factor is file size.  You can scan a few large files way quicker than a load of small files.  When I do my backups, the data rate can fall to 1/10 of the max.  Certain folders have lots of small files.  I'm sure it takes a lot longer to scan zip and cab files too.  No doubt there are other files in that category.  If you have set your scan to skip large files or certain file types that will affect overall time.
 
You can throw in file fragmentation too.  If one section of files is highly fragmented it will take longer.
