When the carriage is stuck on the right there's not much you can do, When the printhead goes bad it keeps your printer from powering up. You need to either remove the printhead, or unplug the light color ribbon cables from the circuit board on the right side of the machine inorder to power up, and then change the printhead. QY6-0061-000 around $60.00

sounds like the print head contacts are getting loose or are dirty, try cleaning the contact pads, re-seat the unit and try again, to do this gently rub the contacts with a white eraser works good for this job. if this helps you, please provide some thumbs up. cheers.

Canon MP830 Error Code 6AOO


The error seems to indicate a failed sheet feed, check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper, however I have heard that this can also be caused by a flaky sensor in the paper path.....

apparently the best way to deal with this is to turn it upside down and give it a shake.

hope this helps

Returning an error 5200 on my canon MP830 printer


Hi
I have an MP830 on my desk I use all the time. Whenever I use generic cartridges I get the 5200 error and the A600 error. This seems to be caused because the generic cartridges ooze a little ink. The ink falls down into the excess ink pad (as it should) but it also provides a minute amount of resistance when the print head first starts to move which generates the errors. What I do once a week is take out all the print cartridges and clean off their bases. Then I take out the print cartridge holder and clean that. Then I move the print mechanism to the left side. I take a folder piece of paper towel that I put a little glass cleaner on and I run that over the excess print well on the right side of the print head travel or where the print head normally sits. Of course I do this with the printer off. So far it's worked every time. When I first bought the printer and I got the error message I called Canon and this is what they told me also. Since I've been troubleshooting electronics for 40 years I wasn't pleased with that response so I began some troubleshooting on my own. his is what I came up with. I hope this helps. Good luck

My canon mp830


Error code 5200 means the print head temperature is too high. The only was to resolve this error is either replace the print head or replace the logic board. The print head is available, part number QY6-0061 but you will struggle to find a logic board. The only other thing you can try is resetting the EEPROM on the logic board, this sometimes clears the error. A service manual will show you how to do this: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4546483-canon-pixma-mp830-printer-service-manual
