WinXP Canon MP530 driver problem

Q: WinXP Canon MP530 driver problem

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 even tried installing from SafeMode. I've tried using the New Hardware Wizard; I've tried ignoring the New Hardware Wizard. 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" and "AddPrinter Error:1722" and only occur during the part of the installation that concerns "Presto Page Manager", software that comes with the printer, so I don't know if that has anything to do with my problem.
I do have two hard drives, and Canon had me copy my "INF" file to both drives, but that didn't do anything. I didn't entirely understand what they meant, however, so maybe I did that wrong. The guy didn't seem to think it would work anyway.
I don't know what else to try, but I really need to use my printer. I'll call Canon back at some point, but I'd be willing to bet large sums of money that eventually they'll just say "Uh, it's your system. Good luck." Maybe it is my system, but I still need to print stuff.

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?

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?

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.

Can someone please help me????

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.

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.

I hope this is the correct place to ask my question--none of the choices seemed to really fit printing problems, but here goes.

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.

Thank you,

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?

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.

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.

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 about checking the purge unit. Is that something I should try?

Thank you for any help you can give me!

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. Virus scans are not affected, only spyware/malware scans. I have used several spyware scanning programs including AVG, McAfee, AdAware, etc., and all cause the computer to abruptly shut down with the following Stop Error screen:

I checked the Device Manager for problems and there are none. I downloaded and ran the Dell Driver Reset tool and no problems were found. I checked Canon's site for driver updates for this machine, and there are none. I consulted with Canon's techs and they are not aware of this problem.

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.

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.

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.

Please help me. I really need to get some work done today, and I really need my printer to be working.

I uninstalled my Canon iP3000 software, and then when I tried to reinstall it, it got to a stage in the setup process where it asks you to connect the printer to the PC. But where the PC would normally detect a new hardware device, it didn't. My guess is that the driver wasn't uninstalled, although when I look under drivers, I can't see anything under Canon. (I have Windows XP pro). The installation cannot proceed without this, and the computer doesn't detect the printer.

I had originally installed the printer software with Ashampoo, so I used that uninstaller to uninstall, but it seems even that didn't detect everything.

I have tried uninstalling the scanner (in Safe Mode) and then restarting the computer, but it doesn't change anything.

Now if you have CS6 (on Windows 7) it comes with two versions of Photoshop—one is in the Program Files folder (64-bit) and the other is in the Program Files (x84) folder (32-bit). I opened Windows Explorer and navigated to the PS plug-ins folder in Program Files (x86), then I restarted Photoshop. Voila! Problem solved!

Hi RWA, retested, same problem whether using USB parallel cable or networked printer (through my old PC!)Does this mean that you connected the printer to your new PC via its parallel port and had the same problem? If so that certainly ends any question that USB is involved.I would try a complete reinstall of the printer, with the first step including a manual search for /deletion of all Canon files and folders and the same of Canon keys/subkeys in the registry. What a hassle, but I can't think of any other way to be sure that some leftover/corrupt file or setting will not compromise the new installation. You are right, many if not most uninstall programs leave scraps behind.If that doesn't work then Canon has some explaining to do.

When we put the printer back on the Vista PC, and try to add the IP4300 again as a network printer it continues to say it can't find a driver.

All other network aspects, sharing files/folder between the 2 pc's, are working 100% okay.

Is this because win 7 it trying to load a Vista driver? Can we load the driver manually, if so, where can we find the driver?

Now that I've got the kids up and running on my old computer - they're in there now playing NFS - I doubt I'll see them for days - I'm back to tweeking my new box.

My printer will not respond. It was working just fine on the old box.

It has power, the little green ready light is flashing (should be solid)

When I try to print something it just says not ready, try again.

Hmmmm, I wonder if it's a driver issue I mused so I went off to and found a driver for BJC-4300 and WinXP. I believe I've installed it, but still no go.

The LPT1 port is showing as working properly. The printer is plugged into the LPT1 - only connection that would fit, and the new box has a cute little pic of a printer beside it. So I'm sure I'm in the right place.

If I've done everything right, then my next step will be to hike this printer down the hall and confirm that is is working. If not then I guess it's time.... I do not want to buy a new printer, I understand that the cartridges are vacuum sealed and cannot be refilled. That just plain bugs me.

I needed to Upgrade W98SE -> WinXP Home on my Eurocom (A.K.A. Sager, or, Clevo) laptop.

A clean install was not expedient, and I now have no way to make a W98 boot floppy.

I installed a WinXP Home Upgrade v.2002 CD, followed by SP2 (exe), followed by SP3 (exe).

The Eurocom 2700C dropped off my network the moment the Update was 1st installed & it thinks it has no NIC. My USB ports still work, thank goodness.

Eurocom 2700C; P-III 733, 512MB RAM

Hi sorry for probably another printer issue but this one is a little odd.

Problem is my dad is having the same problem with his newer canon pixma ip4500 except windows update isnt finding a driver for it.

The canon site only has this add on driver for some maintenance utillity but doesnt actually have the main driver ! so how can we get this newer model working ?

Thanks for any advice

Download the Vista driver from Canon. You may have to install it in Compatability Mode.
If you are using Win 7 64bit get the Vista 64bit driver. Win 7 32bit get the Vista 32bit driver.

Here is the tutorial. Option One or Two.

I notice that there are a number of posting in regards 64-bit drivers for Canon printers but no other posting for the Canon LBP 5100. I purchased this printer around 12 months ago and simply love it, mainly due to the auto duplex that make printing out PDF such an easy task.

I intend building a new computer in the coming months and have more or less decided on installing Windows 7 Home Premium or Pro (Retail) 64-bit. The only major problem I can see with the 64-bit is with the Canon Printer LBP 5100, the canon website shows a 32-bit driver for Vista but no 64-bit versions. Contacting Canon NZ I received a reply stating that as far as they can ascertain there will be no 64-bit drivers for this printer unless Canon Japan decides different.

Questions please: I have been told that Windows 7 will come with a driver for the Canon LBP 5100 but can't find any information in regards this, so my question is does Windows 7 come with a driver for this printer?
If it does will the auto duplex still work?

Anyone knows how to contact Canon Japan (in English) about a 64-bit driver for this printer?

Had anyone that uses this printer come across a work around for a 64-bit driver for this printer.

A:Canon LBP 5100 64-bit Driver

Their is a similar post above yours for the lpb 5000. And from their question I can ascertain that windows 7 doesn't come with a driver for your printer since they can't be theirs to work. Even if W& did cone with a driver it would be a printer driver (just basic ) and most likely wouldn't include the applications needed for duplex. Sorry but after 7 is released on the 22 nd maybe with enough inquiries cannon will get with the program. But from their point of view i assume they would just rather sell you a newer model printer.

I've searched this online, but I haven't found a solution that works.

Basically, I have a Canoscan FB 320P Scanner, and no installation disk. I've downloaded the drivers from the Canon website, and a few other places. Anytime I try to scan anything, I get a common error message, that reads, "The parallel port may be used by another application 0x00060800"

I also have an HP Deskjet 695C connected with the scanner.

Then it tells me that it can't find the Twain source, to re-check the connection, and try again, but to no avail.

I want to get it so that at least the scanner shows up in the control panel under installed imaging devices. I tried going into the control panel, and adding a new imaging device. It always searches for an .inf file -- is that what I'm missing? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have a new Vista 64 Home Premium machine. Have a Canon i950 printer on my XP machine. Canon does not have a Vista driver for the printer. In these forums, found a post explaining there is a "driver add-on" that makes the i950 driver work in Vista.

Obtained the add-on. It requires that the "base driver" be installed (B3319MUX.EXE). When I run the driver's setup program, get "The Printer Driver Has Not Been Installed" message at the 60% completion point. Have tried the install in compatability mode and "run as administator" (Both XP and 2000), but get the same message. I am also logged in to an Administrator account.

You could try Vuescan from Hamrick if you don't find a suitable solution. The software allows you to use your scanner on a 64-bit OS through its program by providing its own 64-bit driver. It usually offers more options and tweaks over the standard software issued with the scanner. The downfall (if you want to call it that) is it will set you back $40.00 for the Standard edition or $80.00 for the Pro edition. There is a 30-day trial version as well.

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

It almost sounds like there's a permission problem with using the printer with the laptop. Try going to the printer properties on the machine that the printer's connected to. Go to the Security tab and make sure that your laptop login computer name is there and all of the permissions in the ACL list are checked. You could also try going to Network Neighborhood, go to the computer that has the printer connected and try to connect to the printer through there.

It's on the list of supported scanners for VueScan, which works without
requiring there be good Windows drivers installed.

It worked for me on Vista 64. You can try it free before paying for it. If you like it you can decide whether to buy the program or use the money for a new scanner. You don't need a driver for the Lide 30--this program does it all.

But I don't feel I should have to pay for a driver for the $80.00 scanner I just purchased a year ago (Yes, I got ripped off)

Hello, need help!

I have a Windows 7 64-bit PC. I have downloaded the S820 driver from Canon's site, but it keeps failing on me. The PC recognizes the printer, but as an USB device. It won't let me print to it. It only gives me 3 options when I right-click on the printer - Create Shortcut, Troubleshoot, Properties.

I was told the INFCache.1 file was causing issues with USB devices. I went and deleted that file, unplugged the USB plug, reinstalled the driver, plugged it back in. It recreated the INFCache.1 file and it tried to install the printer, but it failed.

I thought it was a compatibility issue, so I tried the XP driver, Vista driver, etc. and none of those worked.

I haven't worked with Windows 7 much, so Windows 7 gurus, please help out a n00b.

Gracias in advance.

After six working days of jumping through hoops, I have finally managed to install a brand new Canon LBP6650dn.

If anyone else is thinking of buying one in the UK, note that

(a) the supplied software disc is only compatible with Win 7 32bit

(b) Canon UK online and telephone support were basically no help and the drivers on the UK site do not work

(c) via a contact in Canon UK, I finally figured out the answer.

What you do is go to Canon U.S.A. : Consumer & Home Office : imageCLASS LBP6650dn
and follow the instructions.

This will install the printer as an "unspecified USB device".

Right click on that, run Windows troubleshooter, and when it tells you that the driver is missing, click on "Fix this problem".

Everything will then be sweetness and light - at least until you try to override the printer defaulting to single-sheet feed. But that's another story (which as yet has no end) ...

Which driver do/did you use? There are 3 there and they all have this note...

Before starting the driver installation, connect only the LAN cable first, do not connect the USB cable at this time.
This is necessary for your printer to acquire IP address automatically before you start the driver installation and enable driver installer function.

I have an English Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 DVD. I have installed it, and after that I installed my own language (danish), and that went fine. I have allso learned how to make the start- and shut down screen in danish.

For my printer (Canon MG6150) I can only find a multilanguage driver, and allthough Canon support danish languane, I can only get it to show printer properties and maintenance in English. Anybody knowing a trick to make the driver install the driver so it will be in danish?

When I attempt to scan a document, the canon dr-2010c pulls it in half way then stops. It freezes and nothing else can be done. If I cancel and try again, an error message tells me the driver is busy. I have also gotten an error that the device cannot be locked and another program may be trying to use it. I do not have any other scanning software on the computer. Could this be a port problem? maybe the scanner is sharing a port with something else?? I have a HP deskjet and an Okidata printer installed, but they always work fine. I dont know what is causing this conflict. any ideas???

Thank you

Hi folks,

Her indoors is not happy!!

I have converted her Lenovo laptop into a dual boot (XP/7 32-bit) - the intention being to get everything she uses onto 7 and "convert her" to 7 too

In XP she has been happily using her wireless connected Canon MG6150 and was comfortable with its scanner driver (Scangear).

In 7 I located the printer on the network and Win 7 got the driver for it. The "printer side" of the driver is fine but the "scanner side" is very minimal (it's a WIA rather than TWAIN) and she's not a happy bunny.

Should I remove this printer and start over, using Canon's own software? Bearing in mind that this printer is already wirelessly connected, what's the best procedure - install the software first from Canon's site and then connect the printer? If so, how do I stop it from searching Windows Update for a driver?

Just to let you know, I removed the printer, downloaded the Canon software and driver, re-installed and I have a happy wife now

Just after some help with the MP780 on 7 x64.

The printer is plugged in via USB to another machine on the network. On the 7 machine I am running through the add printer wizard, which finds the printer and looks for drivers.

The first problem is that it can't find the MP780 drivers on Windows Update, which I think it should.

After it fails there, it asks to find the inf manually. I have downloaded the drivers from the Canon Australia website but that's just an installer. I have also downloaded drivers from other random driver sites but it just gives me fax and scan infs, nothing else.

Any ideas for me?


A:Canon MP780 Driver Issue

OK if you can install this it might work - make sure the driver package is unzippped to a folder - or just select the setup.exe file and do the following if it wont unzip - this resolves an OS mismatch when the driver wont install on w7

To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Driver page v6.20 - to download firstly click on the file, go to nxt page then - under disclaimer is download - select "i have read the instructions etc" then select download -in "red" and then click save

If that doesnt work try installing it thru device manager and pointing to the folder the driver is unzipped to.

I bought this printer for a buck at a garage sale. They claimed it worked, but had no ink. I paid around twelve dollars for the ink cartridges on ebay, but forgot to check first to see if Canon had a driver for xp. They don't. However, when I go to microsoft's printer support page, I find that printer listed as one that there are drivers for in xp.

The question is--should I assume Microsoft is correct, or assume that my printer won't work and just get rid of it?


A:Question on driver for Canon printer (BJC-620)

I would go with the Win98 drivers they have listed on Canon's website. If microsoft has drivers for XP, try them first. The worst that can happen is that it won't work.

I am having MASSIVE trouble installing a "Canon Inkjet i865" printer on my Windows 7 x64 PC. The printer is a few years old but suddenly stopped working. There is lots of ink in it. The green light on the printer is steady.

I have tried uninstalling the driver and but the reinstalling seems to go wrong.

My Windows can see the printer... i.e. Under "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers" when I connect the printer to the USB (2.0) port, the printer appears under "Unspecified" and is called simply "i865".

When I right click on "i865" and click "Troubleshoot", Windows tries to install the latest driver, but it comes back with "i865 doesn't have a driver. Not fixed"

Under "Troubleshooting Report" I get:
"Problem with PnP devices Detected
There are problems with some PnP devices."

I am also getting the message:

"Printer driver was not installed. Unable to find a core driver package that is required by the printer driver package."

I also tried installing "a0mwin110ea23" from the Canon website. This ran OK but doesn't seem to have helped. I have turned my anti-viral off (AVG) before doing all of this.

This printer has always worked fine in the past, on a plug and play basis.
I am trying to work out if there is a fault in my PC's drivers or whether I ma just going to be forced to buy a whole new printer. I hope not because ... Read more
