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

1 Answer

My Pixma MP830 was working fine until a few

My Canon Pixma MP830 was working fine until a few minutes ago. When a document didn't print just now, I noticed that all lights were off and the printer is completely dead. I checked all connections and plugged it in to various alternate outlets, but nothing gets it to turn back on. The printer has been well looked after, is clean and has never been misused. There was no power surge or outage here. All other equipment in my office is working fine.
What I should do? I called Best Buy where I bought it 2 years ago and they immediately said that I should just buy a new printer as it will cost more to fix. What??? It was fine just a minute ago.

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.

Canon MP830 power outage while printing


My MP830 did the same thing today. I thought it was toast. However through a Google search I found the following suggestion.

Unplug the MP830 for 20 minutes or more. Plug the MP830 back in and hit the power button.

To might great relief my MP830 powered up and is working just fine.

Print head


I encounter exact same problem. What I did was took out the print head and clean the print head with Qtips with alcohol. To locate and remove print head, follow the instruction at Canon's PIXMA MP830 website and choose the tab "Support & Service" type "rseating the Print Head"
You'll be seeing
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804#SupportDetailAct

Basically, printer head is inner carton where ink cartridges sit.
Above link shows pricicely how to remove the ink cartridge.

Above link's instruction says, Caution: do not touch print head nozzles<1>

But, I just went ahead and clean the print head nozzles with rubbing alcohol soaked Qtips.
After completely cleaned and dried, I reinstalled print head, reinstalled ink cartridges,
closed all the cover. It went back working perfectly.

MAC OS X Canon MP830


Gazzards, First, what application are you printing from? Some applications (TextEdit for example) modify the size of the print job (scaling) to fit the size if the window on the screen. So, if I open TextEdit and type "THIS IS MY TEXT" and print it, it's fair. If I resize the window to full screen by clicking the green circle and reprint (with no other changes) the text comes out minute. If you've only tested one application printing, try another. Another bit of printing information in Mac OS X: You can manage printers in a different way using your browser and pointing to this URL: http://localhost:631/printers/ I use this to print a test page for printers, and it's a good test for your situation because it does not involve the print dialog settings. Just find the printer you use and click the "Print Test Page" button next to it. Does it come out the correct size? Please let me know if this helps.
