Whenever I try and print something, I get the error message "More then one ink tank of the following color is installed. Black [5] "

I know for sure I obviously don't have 2 different ones installed.

The printer is a Canon Pixma M530, any help is appreciated.

Is that the correct model number, because the Cannon site has no record of that model.

What was done, prior to getting this error?
Does the Alarm/Power light flash orange, and if so, how many times?

Is it still under warranty?
If so, I'd call technical support.
Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight ET, Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (excluding holidays) at 1-800-828-4040

Have you tried to reset the printer?
By resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur.
Follow these steps to reset the printer:

1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for a few seconds, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).
4. Turn the printer back on.

Have you tried uninstalling, then reinstalling the printer?
