Re: unable to duplex

Make sure that duplex printing is enabled in the drivers when you print. It should work. You might have to manually tick that option and it might not be enabled by default.

My Canon MP830 prints only colors, not blacks?

have you checked the ink levels? sometimes the black runs out before other colors because it is used more commonly.
it could be that the device is unable to detect that it has no black ink and therefore will not notify you that it has run out.
i suggest trying a replacement ink and seeing if that solves the problem, if not, then there is a problem with the hardware of the printer.

Ink appearing on the back side of pages prints

This is called duplex printing or two sided printing. If you want to disable it, you can go to

Start>Devices and Printers>Right Click on your default printer>Select printer properties>Click on the box where the check mark appears in the box "duplex printing." This will remove the check mark. Click ok.

Canon mp830 printing pinkish instead of blue


You have stick residue in the print head. Just run the print nozzle for 2-3 times to get the correct color.

Also, be sure that all ink cartridges are full because if one of the color is empty, you cannot achieve the correct color when one ink color is missing.

Please let me know if you need more help

Canon mp830 not printing in color

It is possible that your print head may be clogged. Even though you have ink, if the print head is clogged it would not print anything of certain colors. I believe this device has separate print heads so you should consider either replacing them or cleaning them according to the manufacturers suggestions. There are detailed instructions in Chapter 10 - Page 148 of the manual. If you don't have the manual, it is available online at

Download the "User's guide" towards the bottom of the page.

Hope this helps - Flub
