Turning Your Printer On and Off
To turn your printer on or off, press the POWER button.
POWER button
• The POWER lamp will flash green when warming
up or when a print job is being sent to the printer.
• The POWER lamp will glow a steady (non-flashing)
green when the printer is ready for use or when
the print job is complete.
• If the POWER lamp flashes orange, see “Handling
Error Messages” on page 69.
What Is a Printer Driver?
Most computers require special software to link the programs you use to create
documents or images with the printer. This special software, called a printer
driver, converts the information from the software application into a format that
the printer can understand, and provides other handy features, such as
monitoring the levels of ink in the printer.
Selecting the S530D Photo Printer for Use
If the S530D is the only printer connected to your computer, it will be used
automatically every time you print. However, if your computer has access to
multiple printers, you can set the S530D as the default (main) printer.
To set the S530D as the default printer in Windows®:
1. Click Start, then:
• Windows XP: Select Control Panel, then Printers and Other Hardware, then
Printers and Faxes.
• Other Windows versions: Select Settings, then Printers.
2. Right-click the Canon S530D printer icon, then click Set as Default Printer.
The Canon S530D printer icon will now display with a checkmark that
indicates it is the default printer.

To select the S530D from within a Windows application:
If another printer is set as the default printer, you can still select the Canon
S530D for a specific print job from within most applications.
Menus vary from application to application. Consult your
application’s user documentation if the Print option is not listed.
1. From the File menu, click Print.
2. Windows XP: Select Canon S530D from the list, then click Apply.
Other Windows versions: Click OK.
To select the S530D in Mac® OS:
1. Click Apple, then Chooser.
2. Click the S530D printer icon. Close the Chooser. The S530D will remain the
default printer until another is selected.

Caring for Your Photographs
The Canon S530D Photo Printer will generate spectacular results for printing
photographs, especially when used with Canon specialty media. All images are
susceptible to fading over time, but proper care of prints made from your S530D
Photo Printer will ensure that print quality lasts long into the future.
Many environmental factors can impact how long a printout will last before
noticeable image fading occurs. Exposure to sunlight or other light sources,
humidity, temperature, exposure to cigarette smoke and ozone are just some of
the factors that can impact image permanence. While many of these variables
cannot be controlled, there are basic measures that you can take to prolong
image quality:
• Use Canon Photo Paper Pro and genuine Canon inks. Try Canon Photo
Paper Pro or Canon Photo Paper Pro for Borderless Printing (4" x 6").
Both papers are specifically designed to work with genuine Canon inks.
• Mount images under glass to reduce exposure to ozone, cigarette smoke and
other environmental factors that can degrade images.
• Keep printed images out of direct sunlight or other intense light sources.

Chapter 5: Using Your
Photo Applications
Several photo applications come with your Canon S530D that make it easy to
organize, view, manipulate and print color photographs.
• Easy-PhotoPrint for Windows, which supports Exif 2.2, the new worldwide
•
•
•
standard for digital images, can be used to select, trim and lay out your
photos before printing. Easy-PhotoPrint can be used as a stand-alone
application, or with ZoomBrowser EX version 3.3 or later.
A browser (ZoomBrowser EX for Windows and ImageBrowser for Mac OS)
provides easy viewing of photos and other images stored on your computer.
PhotoRecord for Windows can be used to compile digital photos or images
into “album” layouts, or place multiple images on a single sheet for printing.
From PhotoRecord, you can also make high-quality color prints on Canon
specialty paper.
PhotoStitch helps you to “stitch” together different parts of a single photo or
combine multiple related photos into a panoramic or fully assembled view.
This chapter provides a brief overview of the basic features available with these
applications, as well as procedures for printing on Canon Photo Paper Pro for
Borderless Printing 4" x 6" paper.
What is Exif Print?
The Canon S530D Photo Printer supports Exif 2.2, the new worldwide standard for
digital images.
When taking a photograph using an Exif 2.2 (Exchangeable Image File Format)compatible camera, additional information, including the camera exposure and
color settings, is automatically recorded in the photograph’s digital file. When
you print these Exif Print-enhanced digital images on your Canon S530D Photo
Printer using the Easy-PhotoPrint software, they are optimized with more colors,
resulting in vibrant, true-to-life photographs.

Problem
Printing is slow
Possible Cause
Try This
Incorrect printer driver
settings
Altering driver settings may improve print speed. For example,
draft mode is faster than normal mode, but the quality of the print
is lower. See “Setting Driver Options” on page 8 on for selecting
the optimum print mode for a print job.
Computer resources
are low or not enough
memory
You may not have enough memory (RAM) on your computer. Close
any open applications that are not needed for printing.
Computer resources
are low or not enough
disk space
When a print job is sent to the printer, it first goes to a temporary
print spool. If the file is large and you have limited disk space
available, this can slow or stop printing.
If the problem persists, consider adding more memory to
your computer.
WINDOWS
Delete all temporary files (.tmp).
If you have Windows 98 or later, you can also run the Disk
Cleanup utility.
WINDOWS XP
1. Click Start, then My Computer, then right click the
C: drive icon.
2. Click Properties from the drop-down menu.
3. Click the Disk Clean-up button.
4. Ensure that Temporary files is selected.
5. Click OK.
MAC OS
If you run out of disk space on your computer, copy any
unused files to a Zip disk or other removable media, then
delete the files from your hard disk by dragging them into
the trash.
For OS 8.6 – 9.x users: Allocate more memory to the
application.

printer, never attempt to use the printer in any way other than the methods
described in this guide.
Choosing a Location
Never place the printer near flammable solvents such as alcohol,
thinner, etc. To help avoid the hazards of fire or electric shock,
keep all flammable liquids away from the printer.
• Never set the printer on a surface that is unstable or subject to excessive
vibration. The printer could tip or fall and cause injury.
• Never use the printer in a location that is subject to high humidity, dust, high
temperatures, or direct sunlight.
• Set up and use the printer in a location where ambient temperature is within
41˚F–95˚F (5˚C–35˚C) and 10%–90% humidity with no condensation.
Never place the printer on a thick carpet or rug. Fibers or dust
entering the printer could cause a fire.
Keep the power outlet for the printer free of all obstacles so you
can unplug the power cord at any time. Such obstacles could
prevent you from unplugging the printer when a printer fault
occurs and cause a fire or electric shock. The socket-outlet shall
be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible.
• Always carry the printer with both hands holding both ends of the printer. To
avoid dropping the printer and causing injury, always carry it carefully when
moving it to another location.
79
S530D QSG.book Page 80 Tuesday, May 7, 2002 4:14 PM
Appendix
Power Supply
Never attempt to plug the power cord into a power outlet when
your hands are wet. To avoid electric shock, make sure that your
hands are dry.
• Always push the plug completely into the power outlet. A loose or poorly
connected plug could cause a fire or electric shock.
Never cut, modify, stretch, bend, or twist the power cord, or never
place heavy objects on the power cord. A power leak from a
damaged power cord could cause a fire or electric shock.
Never plug the printer power cord into a power outlet (power
board, double adapter, etc.) that is shared by other devices or
office equipment. To help prevent the hazards of fire or electric
shock, avoid overloading power points.
• Never use the printer if the power cord is bundled or knotted. To help prevent
the hazards of fire or electric shock, make sure the power cord is straight.
If you detect smoke, unusual odors, or strange noises around the
printer, immediately press the POWER button to turn off the
printer and disconnect the power plug. To reduce the risk of fire
or electric shock, never use the printer under these conditions.
Call the Canon Customer Care Center.
• Always grasp the plug when you unplug the power cord. Pulling on the power
cord could damage the cord and cause a fire or electric shock.
Never use an extension cord. To help avoid a fire or electric
shock, always plug the power cord directly into the power outlet.
Never use a power supply voltage other than that supplied in the
country where you purchased the printer. Using incorrect voltage
could cause a fire or electric shock. The correct power supply
voltage for this printer is AC 120V, 60 Hz.
80
S530D QSG.book Page 81 Tuesday, May 7, 2002 4:14 PM
Appendix
Cleaning and Maintaining the Printer
• Use only a slightly damp cloth to clean the printer. Never use flammable
solvents like alcohol, benzene, thinner, etc. If a flammable solvent contacts
an electrical component inside the printer, a fire or electric shock could result.
• Always unplug the printer power cord before you clean the printer. If you
mistakenly turn on the printer while cleaning it, you could touch moving
components inside the printer and suffer injury.
• Never attempt to disassemble or modify the printer. The printer contains high
voltage components which could cause a fire or serious electric shock.
Working Around the Printer
Never use flammable sprays near the printer. Gases in the spray
could cause a fire or electric shock if they come in contact with
electrical components inside the printer.
Never insert your fingers or hands inside the printer while it is
printing. The printer contains moving parts which could cause injury.
Never place anything on top of the printer, especially metal
objects (paper clips, staples, etc.), or containers with flammable
solvents (alcohol, thinners, etc.) Objects falling into the printer
could cause a fire or electric shock.
If any foreign object, especially a piece of metal or liquid, falls
into the printer, immediately press the POWER button to turn off
the printer, unplug the power cord, then call the Customer Care
Center. Continuing to use the printer after a foreign object has
fallen into it could cause a fire or electric shock.
81
S530D QSG.book Page 82 Tuesday, May 7, 2002 4:14 PM
Appendix
Print Head and Ink Tanks
For safety, always store print head and ink tanks out of the reach
of small children. If a child accidentally licks or ingests any ink,
consult a physician immediately.
Never subject a print head or ink tank to shocks or excessive
vibration. Shaking could cause ink to leak and stain clothing and
nearby surfaces.
Never touch the print head or electrical contacts on a print head
immediately after removing it from the printer. These metal parts
become very hot during printing and could cause minor burns.
Turning Off the Printer
To avoid printer malfunction always use the POWER button to turn the printer on
and off. Never remove the power cord from the power outlet until you have turned
off the printer by pressing the POWER button. After the POWER lamp goes out, you
can unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Using the Printer Near Appliances and Fluorescent Lamps
Allow at least 6 inches clearance between the printer and another appliance or a
fluorescent lamp. Electrical noise generated by a fluorescent lamp placed too
close to the printer could cause the printer to malfunction.

Appendix
Limited Warranty—U.S. Only
The limited warranty set forth below is given by Canon U.S.A., Inc. (“Canon”) with respect to the Canon brand
computer peripheral product (the “product”) that you have purchased, when purchased and used in the United
States. The product that you have purchased is the only product to which this warranty card and the limited
warranty provided by Canon and stated on the card apply.
Your product, when delivered to you in new condition in its original container, is warranted against defects in
materials or workmanship as follows: for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase, defective
parts or a defective product returned to a Canon repair facility or a Canon Authorized Service Facility (“ASF”) for
such product, as applicable, and proven to be defective upon inspection, will be exchanged for new or
comparable rebuilt parts, or a refurbished product, as determined by the Canon repair facility or the ASF.
Warranty repair or replacement shall not extend the original warranty period of the defective product. This
limited warranty does not cover any supplies or accessories, including without limitation, ink cartridges and ink
tanks, as to which there shall be no warranty or replacement.
This limited warranty shall only apply if the product is used in conjunction with compatible computer
equipment and compatible software, as to which items Canon shall have no responsibility.
Non-Canon brand equipment and software that may be distributed with the product are sold “as is,” without
warranty of any kind by Canon, including any implied warranty regarding merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose, and all such warranties are disclaimed. The sole warranty, if any, with respect to such nonCanon brand items is given by the manufacturer or producer thereof.
This limited warranty covers all defects encountered in normal use of the product, and does not apply in the
following cases:
(a) Loss of or damage to the product due to abuse, mishandling, improper packaging by you, alteration,
accident, electrical current fluctuations, failure to follow operating, maintenance or environmental
instructions prescribed in Canon’s instruction manual, or service performed by other than a Canon repair
facility or an ASF.
(b) Use of parts or supplies (other than those sold by Canon) that cause damage to the product or cause
abnormally frequent service calls or service problems.
(c) If the product has had its serial number or dating altered or removed.
NO IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, APPLIES TO THE PRODUCT AFTER THE APPLICABLE PERIOD OF THE EXPRESS LIMITED
WARRANTY STATED ABOVE, AND NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY OR GUARANTY, EXCEPT AS MENTIONED ABOVE,
GIVEN BY ANY PERSON OR ENTITY WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT SHALL BIND CANON. (SOME STATES DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU.) CANON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF REVENUES OR PROFITS, INCONVENIENCE, EXPENSE FOR
SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT OR SERVICE, STORAGE CHARGES, LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA, OR ANY OTHER
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE USE OR MISUSE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE
THE PRODUCT, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY ON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED, AND EVEN IF CANON HAS
BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL RECOVERY OF ANY KIND AGAINST
CANON BE GREATER IN AMOUNT THAN THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT SOLD BY CANON WHICH CAUSED
THE ALLEGED DAMAGE.
WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK AND LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY TO
YOU AND YOUR PROPERTY AND TO OTHERS AND THEIR PROPERTY ARISING OUT OF USE OR MISUSE OF, OR
INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT NOT CAUSED DIRECTLY BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF CANON. (SOME STATES DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.) THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANYONE
OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF THE PRODUCT, OR THE PERSON FOR WHOM IT WAS PURCHASED AS A
GIFT, AND STATES YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.

Canon offers a full range of customer technical support* options:
• For e-mail technical support, the latest driver downloads and answers to frequently asked questions
(www.canontechsupport.com)
• 24-hour, 7-day-a-week, automated support for troubleshooting issues on most current products
(1-800-423-2366)
• 24-hour, Fax-On-Demand System for product specifications and technical information
(1-800-526-4345)
• Free technical support Monday—Saturday (excluding holidays) for products still under warranty**
(1-757-413-2848)
• Technical support 7 days a week (excluding holidays) for products no longer under warranty, at $9.99 per
incident (1-757-413-2848)
If the problem can’t be corrected by using one of the above technical support options, you will be asked to
follow the applicable procedures for warranty service. Note that a dated proof of purchase (bill of sale) is
required to verify eligibility at the time of service. This requirement will be satisfied by providing a copy of your
dated bill of sale. You will also need to supply the product serial number.
Carry-In/Mail-In
Carry-In/Mail-In is a service program by which your defective product is repaired by an ASF. The name and
telephone number of the ASF(s) nearest to your location may be obtained from our Web site at:
www.canontechsupport.com, or by calling the Canon Customer Care Center at 1-800-423-2366. If shipping is
involved, it is your responsibility to properly package and send your defective product, together with your dated
proof of purchase, a complete explanation of the problem and a return address, to the ASF at your expense. Do
not include any other items with your product. The repair(s) covered by this limited warranty will be made and
the product will be returned to you without charge by the ASF. Repairs not covered under this limited warranty
will be charged to you at such costs as each ASF may generally establish from time to time.
InstantExchange†
InstantExchange is a warranty program that expedites, usually by the next business day,†† the exchange of a
defective product with a refurbished product. The refurbished product you receive will be covered by the balance
of the period remaining on your original limited warranty. Note that by using this service you will keep the
replacement product that is sent to you, and your originally purchased product shall become the property of
Canon. InstantExchange warranty program service is available only during the express limited-warranty period
for your product and only in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii during such period.
If the Canon Customer Care Center representative cannot correct the problem with your product over the
telephone, and you elect InstantExchange warranty program service, the representative will issue you a
reference number upon verification of warranty eligibility. You will be asked for information pertaining to your
defective product and for a ship-to location for the replacement product (street address only). You must also
provide a major credit card number that will be pre-authorized by Canon in an amount up to the cost of a new
product at the time you elect InstantExchange warranty program service. Your credit card number will be charged
in an amount up to the cost of a new product (i) if you do not return your defective product to a Canon repair
facility by the date specified by Canon and in the manner described below; (ii) if the defect(s) in the product is/
are not covered by this limited warranty; or (iii) if the warranty period on the product has expired or has not been
sufficiently established by your supplying the appropriate documentation.

The Canon repair facility will ship out the replacement product via overnight courier, prepaid by Canon. After
receipt of the replacement product (with instructions and a pre-paid return waybill), follow the instructions to
ship the defective product to a Canon repair facility. You must return the defective product in the shipping carton
in which the replacement product was packed (be sure to retain your ink cartridges and tanks), and you must
include the reference number, a copy of your dated proof of purchase (bill of sale) and a complete explanation of
the problem. Do not include any other items in the return shipping container.
This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state
to state.
* Support program specifics are subject to change without notice.
** Refer to the individual product information for warranty details.

InstantExchange warranty service for Alaska and Hawaii). Canon does not guarantee next-business-day service in the event of
factors beyond Canon’s reasonable control.
