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

1 Answer

In copy or scan mode, the page is almost all solid black

I have a Canon PIXMA MP830. It prints fine. Put when I try to make a copy or do a scan (either through the ADF or directly from the platen glass), the page is 50 - 90% solid black. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your post. Yes, please let me know the part number and a price. How hard would it be for me to change out the scan assembly?

    The scan assembly is # QK1-2222-000 the price will be around $150.00. There are cables to remove, and you have to transfer the display unit and a couple of hardware pieces. Not a real difficult job though.

My MP830 leaves white horizontal bands when printing black & white documents. Color printing seems fine. Pattern 'F' is missing on the print alignment page.

You need to continually clean and deep clean and realign the black until the results are acceptable. Try manual alignment if the auto does not work. Also clean around the exit hole of the black ink cartidge with a cotton bud and isoproyl alcohol.

Leaking Ink Cartridge

You need a shop to clean the extra ink that's coming up on the rollers and install a mylar strip to prevent that in the future. It's the waste ink being forced up thru the exit rollers and getting on the prints.

MP830 prints lightly about every 2 cm down a page from computer.

Sounds like it's in draft mode...

On the MP830 locate the "settings" button (top right of the cursor circle and left of the 1 key).

Press "settings"
This should give you the "Print Quality" settings page on the LED
Locate the 3rd field down which probably says "Fast", change this to "Standard"
Press the "settings" button again to register the change.

Also possible that your contrast is causing problems... Check to see where the red bar is in the gradient (white to black line) under the "Copies" field on the LED in copy mode. If it's way over to the left that would also explain some of the problem.

Pressing the right arrow key on the circle controller will increase contrast although I'm not sure if it will retain this setting.

Hope that helps.

Printer will not print document coming from PC

On your WINDOWS desktop, left click the START button. LEFT click on CONTROL PANEL, then left click on PRINTERS. On the PRINTERS screen, check for an icon of your Canon printer. If it is there, right click on it, and from the drop-down menu, left click PROPERTIES. On the PROPERTIES page, check if SET AS DEFAULT is checked. If it is your default printer, left click on the PRINT TEST PAGE button and see if it prints. If not, try following the onscreen instructions to correct the problem. If your Canon printers icon does NOT qppear on the PRINTERS page, the driver is not there, Go to ,and left click on the DOWNLOADS tab. Follow the onscreen instructions and download and install the driver. You may have to do this on both computers, or set up one computer to SHARE the Canon with the other. Follow the INSTALL WIZARD'S instrictions, and you should then be able to print again.

Canon Pixma 750, works great, except that it will no longer copy.


You need to be more specific. Does nothing happen when you press the Copy button? Does it give you a blank page, a solid inked page, or no page for the copy? Do you get the same results for Color Copy or Black and White Copy?

Printing color copies

check to see which cartridge you put in, photo magenta cartridges DO NOT work in the MP830. sounds silly but we see it all the time.

check to see if the short vertical black bar next to the magenta pattern looks ok, not brown or gray or streaky. if it is you may need a professional head flush, take the whole printer in for service.
