Flip up LCD Screen Pixma MP810 has distorted display

The flip up  LCD screen on my Canon Pixma MP810 display becomes distorted in the up position.  No words, just vertical bars.  If I move it down slightly screen displays properly.   I took it apart partially and noticed that the LCD screen is connected to an internal circuit board through a ribbon cable.   I would guess that one end of that cable is moving slightly out of positiion when the screen is in the full up position.  And connects properly when I move the screen slight downward.   I'm intent on fixing the problem myself.  What I need to know is, is there a source where I can purchase parts if I need to replace the ribbon cable or even the LCD screen? My email address is   Thanks for any help

    I found a company in New Hampshire that makes flat ribbon cable. Their web address is

    They had a 40 circuit wide flat ribbon cable in stock that I ordered for $10 and I cut it down to 30 circuits wide.   I installed the modified cable in my Canon Pixma MP810 printer and it works perfectly.
    Hope this helps anyone who has problems.

    Thats a fairly new printer - can't you get it repaired under warranty?

    If not, then try to replace just the ribbon. I don't know where you could get a repalcement from however, unless you could buy another broken one perhaps and get enough parts to make one working printer?

SOURCE: Hi :) I'm trying to print on my Canon PIxma- mp480 to no avail

This can be due to a feeder wrong setting on the printer or on your PC: your printer tries to take paper from the back feeder, whereas your paper is on the front feeder....
try to check these settings in your PC and on your printer, and retry to print, hoping this helps

SOURCE: MP760 - how to disassemble? (waste ink absorber almost full)

You really don't have to disassemble it. What would be helpful tho is some sort of long needle-nose forceps. Tho I bet you could get by with a pointy chop-stick in a pinch. There are two waste-ink absorbers on the right, and one spongy thing on the left. With the 'hood' open, allowing you access to the cartridges, you should be able to see the pads. Get a Petzl light on your forehead, you'll need a lot of light! The sponge on the left is covered by a small clear plastic trough that channels the ink into the sponge below. With enough poking and prodding you should be able to get all these out, rinse with water, dry with a hair dryer, blot out the pad areas with a kleenex, and pop them back in. Good Luck!

SOURCE: printer canon mp810 displaying 5020 error

This maybe a small bit of paper in the rollers somewhere you need to find it or it is need of a good clean.

You can also try this.

Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

The view screen on my Canon MP810 has lines across it when fully raised & can't be viewed. If the screen is only partly raised it is OK. Any ideas?

Mp810 printer

That error code refers to the AP position during the purge operation., basically is means there is an error in the purge unit of the printer, either the purge unit is out of position or there was a power issue while the printer was shutting down. So it could be as simple as removing any foreign object in purge unit or it could be the sheet feed unit, the logic board or the purge unit.
I hope this helps you to understand what the printer needs. Good Luck with it.

Cannon MP810 when turn on display error A600. There is also no light displaying on the printing cartridge.

A600 or 6A00. If 6A00 then the fault code is for the AP motor position error. Error lies with the sheet feed unit, Purge unit or Logic board.

This is a complete service manual
