Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The power went out and when I turned the printer on, The LCD display shows an unknown language. I can not find our manual. I would like to change it back to English. I have tried reseting the printer and it does not work. And I can't read the screen to even know whatever it will prompt me to do next, as I could before. Thanks,
Issue: How do I change the
language setting of the LCD?
Solution: Change the display language settings (MP170)
LCD Appears in Japanese (or other foreign language) Upon powering on the machine for the first time, the LCD will prompt to select a display language. If a language other than English is selected, the setting can be changed by following these steps.

I struggled because I couldn't read the language that my printer had changed to (though I could tell it wasn't any of the ones listed above), so I couldn't see the words "System Settings". But I was able to reset it "blind" with a modification of Sheba111's Solution #2. After turning on the power, press the Copy button, then press the Menu button 7 times, then right arrow 2 times, then OK, then right arrow 3 times, then OK.
At this point, the instructions in Solution 2 are not quite enough. The languages aren't numbered and aren't readable, and the language displayed is the current one, so how do you know which one to select? You have to press the left arrow key until it no longer displays. That gets you to the beginning of the list. Then press the right arrow key, counting each press, until you have pressed it the number of times required to select your language, the press OK. For example, to get it back to English, I had to press the left arrow key several times until it stopped displaying. That got me to Japanese. I then pressed the right arrow key once to move to English (though I couldn't read what was displayed), pressed OK, and it changed immediately to English display. Also note that there are more languages (at least for my MP170) than Sheba111 lists, though the first six are those listed, in the same order.
