Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
After initialization, the indicator light flashes from green to orange alternately and continously. The status monitor indicates that service error 6800 occurred. Turning it on and off did not work and cant enter to maintenance mode. Thanks in advance, i believe in you guys!
things to check.
1. check for any paper that may have jam inside the printer.
2. check for open covers, back, top covers and close them properly.
4. check your power adapter if its giving correct voltage to the printer.
3. Try to move the ink cartridge to the left gently and return back to the right most part.
please let us know if this works.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP830 error 5100
As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.
