Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

#5 black ink cartridge skips through the middle occasionally

My MP830 #5 ink cartridge does not print through the middle of the print test. I prints the top 7 lines, doesn't print a line or two and then prints the bottom 7 or 8 lines. When printing words, it inconsistently does not print 2/3 of a line. I've cleaned and deep cleaned and switched ink cartridges to no avail.

Replacing the print head
The print head may need replacing if, after all print head and ink tank troubleshooting has been performed:

  • The nozzle test appears broken or to have horizontal white streaks.
  • One or more of the colors is missing from the Nozzle Test.
  • The colors are incorrect on the Nozzle Test.
  • A print head error is indicated on the unit.
  • The printer powers off when the print head is installed.
I hope it helps!!!

Black ink will not print


Have you tried setting the color to black cartridge only. You may be printing the black with a combination of colored inks. I occasionally have a similar problem. Sometimes I can get the black to work by taking a paper towel dampened with distilled water and holding it against the cartridge print head until I see black ink coming out. Replace the cartridge and try printing again. If this doesn't work try a new cartridge and run through your Printer Settings, making sure they are all set properly.

cartridge automatically.

3. Then, attach the print head to a tissue paper. If there is a tissue paper used in ink (black cartridges, black block lines, and color cartridges, three color red yellow blue lines), means the flow of ink to the print head is normal. If the
tissue paper no trace of ink, attach back into the water, repeat the above process.
4. After process is complete no.3, clean the cartridges with a tissue paper (careful, do not touch the element cartridges or print head by hand, because it will damage the cartridge). After cartridge clear of the water, insert the cartridges into printer.

My printer will print black ink, but when I try to print something with color, nothing appears. I have tried re-installing the color cartridge and restarting the printer. The test page says all ink levels...


I had the same problem. Unfortunately, it may not be fixable. The tiny pipes that carry the ink are REALLY small; about the thickness of a hair. As a result, they can clog. If you only occasionally print in color, the ink in the pipes dries out. You can't do the repair. I was told by the technician that I should print the test pattern occasionally, if I'm not printing in color often.

Black ink problem with printout on hp7780


Always try replacing the ink cartridges first.

It sounds like the print heads in the 7780 are bad. Don't confuse the ink cartridges with print heads. The cartridges fit inside the print heads. You will need to change the heads. Here is a link to HP's how-to.

Could have the same problem with the Dell.

I tried to use a generic brand ink cartridge in my Canon MP520, which I couldn't get to work. I then gave up on it and installed a genuine canon cartridge, and while the printers says that the ink is full...


you do not say if your printer has it's own print heads or if they are on the cartridge.. if your printer has the print heads then the generic cartridge has probably blocked the heads nosils (cheap ink is NOT the same as the real thing and is usually sub-standard) use your maintenance section on either the printer or it's software on the computer and run head cleaning routine several times and do the occasional test print to see if it improves... hopefully you have not damaged the print head
