Run the maintenance utility for cleaning the color printhead; you are missing cyan at the moment so it is either exhausted or clogged.
If you still get no blue output, you may need to replace the printhead or cartridge. BTW, don't let it sit too long, the residual ink can really finish off the printhead.

My parents have the Canon MP830 printer. All the ink cartridges are in correctly but I cannot get it to print yellow & blue. I did a test print & cleaned the nozzle then did another test print...


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

I'm afraid I don't have a solution - I have the same exact problem with my Canon MX860. Did you ever get a solution?

Pixma MP830 is printing things green that should be red


when you change all new cartridges (make sure all cartridge ok, and the cartridge pins connection ok) still red color lost, it is the trouble at print head ink chanel some of that is too dry for longer time less using , most CANON printer head is separated from the ink cartridge, two way you may try:
1) take out the ink cartridge, drop down a little the special cleaner (best clean tools buy from dealer), to the head ink chanel hole, then set back the ink cartridge and waiting minutes
2) try put the print head bottom surface touch a little cleaner or water 1-2 hrs, if you can take out the print head unit. still not fixed for some case that should change the print head unit.

Trying to print onto cd-r


I got this model for Xmas & spent over 2 hours with the same problem. How can you close inner tray when you're only supposed to push the tray half way in for printing onto disc? It doesn't make sense, it's a contradiction and the manual doesn't give any explanation, An absolute piece of Junk! It's going to be 'dumped' back to the retailer tomorrow! I've never had such crap!
