Printer won't turn on

We have a Canon MP830 all-in-one. We've had it for a year now. It has wiorked fine. Now it will not power up. I've tested the outlet it is attached to and it is live. I've also disconnected it from both the power and the computer and reconnected them. Still the machine is dead.

Re: Printer won't turn on

Same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume my MP830 took a surge. HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge) then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button. I know the above post is an old one, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me.

Re: Printer won't turn on

Can you recall the rough time it stopped working, what happened at the time? Is your pc and printer routed through a safety board or just a wall plug?

In the last 2 weeks my Canon MP830 printer has been printing jiberish the first time a print job was sent to it, then when resent it printed properly. Today the printer won't turn on. What can I do ?

Unfortunately these are considered disposable printers.
If it won't power on at all even in a known good power outlet there isn't much you can do as the cost to repair it out of warranty would cost more than to simply replace it.

Other than checking the power outlet and the power cable nothing else to do.

Our Canon printer MP830 unexpectedly would not come on.

Sometimes when the printhead goes out it keeps the printer from powering on. If you can get to it, remove the printhead and see if it powers up. A new printhead runs around $80.00 now but cheaper than a new machine. If you can't get the printhead out of the corner, remove the right side cover and the smaller cover inside, and unplug the ttwo light gray ribbon cables, and try the power.
