I had the same problem. I went through all the troubleshooting of cleaning the printhead several times. The Nozzle check (found under Printing Preferences/Maintenance tab) kept coming out without the PGBK section (Black) printed on it. All the colors printed. If your see any of the colors missing, it is probably the same problem---it needs the Print Head replaced.
Part # QY6-0061-010. I was able to find it at Canyon Computer Supplies in Phoenix, but you can also order them via the internet from multiple outlets. Mine cost $59.57 with tax...much cheaper than a new printer. The replacement is very easy...Canon has info on how to do it at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804#SupportDetailAct ...if the link doesn't get you right there, search MP830, Support & Service, then search print head & you should find it. Once you remove all the print cartriges (printer ON), the gray lever on the left side lifts up and releases the print head...which is the unit that houses all the print cartridges. I just put the new print head in, replaced all the ink cartridges, did a nozzle check...and it worked!! I love fixing things myself.

You need to continually clean and deep clean and realign the black until the results are acceptable. Try manual alignment if the auto does not work. Also clean around the exit hole of the black ink cartidge with a cotton bud and isoproyl alcohol.

your black ink cartridge got bad sprayer nozzles now you gotta replace it
and why the other color one is not bad yet cus printer as will known will depend on black ink far more so the black cartridge is heated up more times

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks !!!!"
SOURCE: Installed new ink on ip4200.
The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.
Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (A), it is properly removed. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (B), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (A). Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.
