Will not turn on MP830

I have a 3 month old Canon MP830. All of a sudden. It will not turn back on. Checked the outlet connections, even put on another cord to plug in..... Still won't turn on. Any suggestions?

Re: Will not turn on MP830

I just had the same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm here on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume that it 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 3 weeks old, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me as well.

When the printhead goes bad sometimes the printer will not power up, if you can get to it you have to remove the inks and printhead and see if it powers up, if it does, don't put the printhead back in as you could damage the main logic board. Power supplies on these machines are very robust and seldom fail.

If it is only 3 months old, I recommend using the manufacturers warranty. The integrated Power Supply might be damaged.

The ink cartridge that was in my Canon Pixma iP1800 printer suddenly got an error message saying it was not properly installed. It had been in place for months. I ordered a new cartridge. It didn't work...

I will try a printer reset.
Remove both cartridges and close cover.
Unplug printer from electrical outlet and wait at least 10 minutes.
The wait time will let the printer to fully cleared memory and
also to cool down if printer was overheating.
Plug printer back in and turn on printer.
Wait for printer to stop.
Install both cartridges.

Our i560 suddenly will no longer turn on

Sure it is, try removing the inks and then the printhead. If it will power up with them out, you need a new printhead. Don't put the old one back in as you could fry the logic pcb. The printhead part number is stamped on the side.

Printer went off. Lost power and won't turn back on.

Try "reinitializing" the device (printer):

  1. Shut down the computer system the printer is connected to.
  2. Unplug the printer power cord from both the printer and its power outlet.
  3. Wait at least 5-10 minutes, then re-plug both ends back in.
  4. Switch on the power button to the printer (if no indicator light is on).
  5. Restart (reboot) system.
Also, you can also rule out it being a failed power outlet by trying a different one to plug the printer into.

Good luck, and please post back to let me know how things work out, or if you have any further questions.

Printer doesn't turn's on

Per Canon:

Solution: Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source

Secure all Power Connections
  • Disconnect the AC Power Adapter or power cord from both the device and the electrical source.
  • Then reconnect it.
  • If you are still unable to obtain power to the device, try another power outlet.
  • If possible, try connecting power directly to a wall outlet (as opposed to using a surge protector or power strip...just as a troubleshooting measure).
If this does not work, have you tried a different outlet to ensure that the outlet isn't the issue? Also, when you press the POWER button, does the printer respond at all, or is it basically dead?

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Canon i560s Power

Hi Dave,

It surely sounds like a strange issue as everything was working fine when you packed your printer.
In this kind of a scenario i will give you few steps and you can try them out.

- Unplugg the power cord and the data cord from the printer. ( I mean it should not be connected to the power and to the computer )
- Press and hold the power button on the printer for 20 seconds. ( You wont feel anything happening, its a way to drain out static charges from the printer )

- Plug in the power cord from both ends and make sure that its fitted properly.
- Try a different power outlet
- You may not have another power cord, if you have one try that as well.

Hope that this resolves your issue or you may have to take it back to the manufacturer.

PGI5BK Ink tank not recognized on MP600

You say the "original" is 3 months old? You are out of ink. Replace the cartridge. Even when there is still a little ink in the "tank" it reports back to the printer as empty. And yes it will go through all its checks and still show empty. They don't last forever even if you don't use the printer. The ink evaporates out over time.

Go on an elimination hunt. Try connecting to a new power outlet altogether. If no go, try turning off and removing all cords, usb etc, reconnect. Then try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if this corrects it. Post agian if no good.
