Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't scan from Pixma MP830

To scan, I have to go to Picasa and import, then process from Picasa. If I use buttons on Pixma MP*30, machine does nothing. It lets me go so far as to say I want it scanned to say "email" and it asks where I am scanning from (ie platten or ADF), but will not scan when I hit button for black or color to start scan. It does nothing.

I have the same printer...there is a program in Canon Utilities called MP Navigator 2.2 (should have downloaded from the software). Open it from Start, All Programs, Canon Utilities, MP Navigator. (if you right click, you can create a shortcut on your Desktop which is convenient) Don't know how savvy you are, but I was able to figure it out and discovered that you can even scan documents, save them as a PDF file and send them through email.

Recently upgraded to 10.7.5 on my Mac. Now my Cannon Pixma 830 will not scan. It will still print from my computer, however.


Hi, Nona!
I'm sorry to hear that your Canon printer isn't scanning! This has actually happened many times for me in the past. Your printer is probably having issues and this occurred coincidentally afterwards. Canon printers seem to enjoy to have problems. Let's try to fix this.

1. Try restarting your printer. Press the power button and wait until it turns off. Then, unplug the printer for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in. If necessary, press the power button to turn it back on. Wait a few minutes, then try scanning. If this didn't work, keep reading.

2. Try scanning through your printer. Download the Canon printer program for your printer. Here is the link: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/printers/support-inkjet-printer/mp-series/pixma-mp830
Go to Drivers & Downloads and select "Software". Then choose "Easy-PhotoPrint EX Ver.4.5.0 (Windows)". Agree to the terms and select "Download".

CANON MP830 is giving me an error code 5010. What does this mean and how do you fix it?


This error refers to the following possible problems:

1) Unlock the scanning unit: Before turning on the power, open the scanner cover, slide the release button to the "unlock" position and close the cover. Turn off the power for approx. 5 seconds. Power back on.

2) Reset the device: Press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display on the machine goes blank. (If this is unsuccessful, unplug the power cord). Wait approx. 10 seconds and power back on. Wait until the printer completes its startup routine before trying another print job.

3) Your MP 830 requires repair service.

My multifunction Canon Pixma MP830 will not scan. I downloaded drivers again but scan button does nothing once "start is initiated"


Will it copy standalone?If it does.
Then it is a software problem or bad cable.
If so you need to uninstall the MP navigator and reinstall without an usb cable attached.Attach a good cable and let Windows install the correct drivers

When i scan the images are black and white not color


Reset the device when it is not functioning properly. If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.
  1. On the operator panel, press and hold the <ON/OFF> button for one second. (The display will go blank.)
    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.
  2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON/OFF> button again.
  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.

Selecting a Response to Commands from the Operation Panel
You can specify a response resulting from pressing the <Color Start> or <Black Start> button on the machine. Setting the response with MP Navigator allows you to scan documents easily.
Important:
With network connection, only MP Navigator can be launched. Configure the settings accordingly.
With USB connection, with Windows XP, the program selection dialog box will be displayed the first time you press the <Color Start> or <Black Start> button on the machine, as shown below. Select 'MP Navigator', select the 'Always use this program for this action' checkbox, and then click 'OK'. By specifying this setting, selecting any scan mode launches MP Navigator, and the selected action will be performed.

3. Right-click the scanner icon for the machine, then click 'Properties'.

4. On the 'Events' tab, in 'Actions', specify the setting to launch MP Navigator. Specify 'MP Navigator Ver2.1' for 'Select an event' and for all events. (Windows 98/Windows 2000: Select an event in 'Scanner events' and specify 'MP Navigator Ver2.1' for 'Send to this application'.) If the settings are already configured to launch MP Navigator, click 'Cancel' to exit.

Setting actions for the <Color Start> and <Black Start> buttons with MP Navigator

MP Navigator enables you to specify the response resulting from pressing the <Color Start> or <Black Start> button on the machine. You can specify the response individually for each event.

1. On the Windows desktop, double-click 'MP Navigator 2.1'. Alternatively, click '(All) Programs' from the <Start> button on the Windows taskbar, point to 'Canon Utilities', then 'MP Navigator 2.1'. Then click 'MP Navigator 2.1'.
