Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After I print or copy and the machine sits for a time it seems to cycle internally. Sometimes when it does so it makes rapid popping sounds like gears aren't meshing or something. It does not happen every time but when it does it is very noticeable. Please help. Thank you.

Take it back for a full replacement, it sound like it has a few faults, why be stuck with it, you have the right to fair trading, which states your product must do wahta it should for a reasonable amount of time. Just out of box and faulting already is not reasonable!!! Hope you hace receipt.

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.

SOURCE: Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away
I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.
Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.
