Question about Canon MP830 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Dead Printer Both of my Canon MP830 multifunction machines will not turn on. I have unplugged them, replugged them, attempted to seek a switch that would re-set them, all to no avail. We live in a rural area of Virginia wherein we can experience brown-outs, a few black-outs, etc. I doubt we have had a power surge inasmuch as all other electronic equipment is working well.

    Oh, this is awesome & hits the nail on the proverbial head. Thanks. It appears I am going to be purchasing new printers - both are over one year old.

    I had the same problem..and I read this blog. A person that describes himself as guest said to unplug machine for 20 minutes and try to turn on again. This worked perfectly...thank you so much!!!!

I had the same problem and found a solution: Unplug the printer for 20 miutes, then plug it back in and turn on. This worked for me after a recent power outage. Good Luck!

Hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. these machines are prone to power faluire due to power surges. this machine uses very low DC voltages so when you have even a small AC power surge the eletrictronics in this printer get over charged and they blow. most of the Canon machines that i have seen with no power have been the main logic board at fault not the power supply. if the machines are under 13 months old they are still covered under warrenty. you can call Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and they will locate a repair center near you. hope this helps.

Mp830


Canon might cover this machine as some times they will cover it as its only be 13 months depending what country you are in.

well the MP830 is a very good product and i would think about keeping it. I would maybe look at other new machines like mx850 and see if its worth buy a new one.

Where abouts are you in the world as can repair your machine if you are in the uk.

power surges will damage the machine depending how much damage it has done, it could off blown main board, psu, cartridges, printhead. So it could be worth buying a new machine.

If you are looking new machine look at the mx850.

Canon site if the link does not work just go to canon.com -> support-> select Multifinction --> Inkjet --> Pixma MP830

Then type in - error code 5000 - (Leave off the " - "
Select #3 - ERROR LCD: Error code (5xxx through 9xxx) appears on the display -

1. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
2. Press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF to reset the printer
3. Removing paper jams MP800R / MP830 / MP530

The links above detail each instruction. If they do not work here then got directly to the Canon Site.

Basically at one point there was a paper jam so clear it and then reset the machine.
Worked for me. Good luck to you :)
