Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
SOURCE: Scanning Photos using ADF
Under the MP Navigator software, go to Platen scanning, then under the Document Size box on the left side, click the "specify" button. Then switch document size from "auto-detect" to 4x6 portrait or 4x6 landscape. Select "ok" and that should do it. Make sure you line the photo up correctly on the platen.

I Solved the problem....
The problem is in the gear box on the document feeder......The (Poor Quality) tension spring against the gear harness becomes stressed to the point where it bends out of it's 90 degree angle from (FYI - below average) use . It fails to function properly causing mis-alignment of the gears during document loading.
In order to fix this you need to remove the drive motor, gear housing and some gears. Bend the tension spring back to the correct 90 degree angle. and reassemble it again. Not for the impatient person.

SOURCE: My ADF Scan does not
There is a small black lever toward the rear where you place the documents to scan. if it is broken or missing it can't see when you place a paper there to scan. If you can see a rectangular hole in that area with nothing in it, you will have to take apart to find and replace the sensor lever.

Canon Pixma MX330, ADF error, Code : 2,103,0
Here's what I found. There were no stuck gears or pieces of plastic caught anywhere.
The ****** can still feed paper, except for (consistently) the last page -->error/stuck.
1) In order to CLEAR THE ERROR you need to do two things
a) & b):
a) Press OK, WITH THE HOOD OPEN, with a piece of paper loaded in the ADF, being careful to grab the paper manually as it comes out of the bottom of the hood.
b) Windex the strip of glass surface which sits under the ADF next to the platen. This needs to be done with attention to minute detail, and a bright LED flashlight; since ink smudges off of documents and collects on the glass with alarming frequency. The machine may think these smudges are caught/jammed paper.
2) In order to SCAN a stack of paper, add one blank sheet to the bottom of your document. This page will be the one that
fails to clear the ADF, generates an error, and must be manually cleared before the next job.
The rest of your pages will have already scanned.
Repeat Every Time You Use it
