SOURCE: Orange light blinking

The solution above does not work. It only lights up when you remove the ink tank completely and re-click it down. But the moment you close the lid the head slides to the side and that is when something bad happens and the ink tank is no longer lit up. I can push very hard on the PUSH and it does not light up again. I am about to return my printer as well for the same exact problem. Unfortunately, I mail ordered mine so I guess I'm out the shipping and handling charges.

First take a smooth cloth or cotton
take a cleaning liquid like spirit, thinner etc., (note - not cleaners)
clean the golden chip with out giving much presser
in the same way clean the other side of the printer also
now test it

90% Problem will solve

Take care

I have similar problem. I found this solution that may help you. My problem insists tho.

>>> 5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

Have a Canon MP830. in the middle of printing, it came up with error code 6A00, and now all it does is flash the alarm light and copy light. how to fix?


http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp830#BrochuresAndManuals

I would download the manual for windows 7 and see if the 'alarm and copy light flash' error is listed. I could not find it referred to in the support area of the canonusa.com website. Also, you could call 1-800-OK CANON and talk to a rep. about this problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer not working..Alarm light & copy light is on...but it doesn't do anything else.


this is an inkjet printe. most inkjet printers hace counters. it must have reached its limit. this is given that the inks are still ok. if it has reached its limit, you will need to have your printer reset with canon.

You need to clean your waste ink i think. For troubleshooting purposes, please perform the following:
1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.
2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.
3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank
properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as
they are not currently installed in the printer.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.
5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are
installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if
you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink
tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of
the issue is the last ink tank.

That error says the purge unit is broken. You will need to have the purge assembly replaced.
It's # QM2-3032-000 but a shop should replace it for you.

Hi there,
Error No. 300 :

Cause 1: The machine is not ready.

If the lamp on the Operation Panel is off, turn the machine on.
While [COPY] is flashing, the machine is initializing. Wait until [COPY] stops flashing and stays lit.
When the Alarm Lamp lights orange, an error may occur in the machine.

Cause 2 : Machine is not proper connected.
Action : Ensure that the printer cable is securely connected to the computer/
* If using a switching hub or other devices, disconnect the machine and reconnect it directly to the computer and try printing again. If successful, the problem may have been with the device.
* There could also be a problem with the cable(s). Replace the cable and try printing again.

Cause 3 : The name of the machine being used is not selected in the [Printer] pull down menu of the [Print]dialog box.
Action : Select [MP830] from the [Printer] pop-up menu in the [Print] dialog box of the printer driver.
If the [MP830] is not displayed in the printer list, follow the procedure below to confirm the settings.
1) Select [ Print abd Fax Preferences] from the [Printer] pop-up menu.
2) Check that [MP830] is displayed in the screen that is displayed and select the [InMenu] checkbox.
3) If [MP830] is not displyed, click [+] to add a printer.
If [MP830] is not displayed, install the MP Drivers again referring to the Easy Setup Instructions for the operations.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.

MP830 LCD not lit


That happens when the cpu on the main pcb does not boot, if all the plugs and cables are in, then you will need a new logic PCB. Could get expensive.

Feed switch & alrm light on


The MP 830 usually will give you an error code in the display. If these lights just come on and you don't hear anything moving inside and no error codes, the main logic board could be bad. A rather expensive repair. Have you tried unplugging the printer and plugging in again?
