Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Purchased MP830 August; For 6 weeks now every time I switch power on the language choice panel comes up first, then' !Head alignment required. Load paper and press [OK]'; This takes time, wastes ink, and is very annoying!
It sounds like the printer is not keeping its internal memory. It either has corrupt internal flash memory, or it has an internal bios chip with an attached battery and the battery is dead. In any case, every time you turn it off it forgets everything. When you turn it back on, it acts like you're turning it on for the first time.
I have tried to find some specific information on this model to see if we can replace the memory and or battery. However, I haven't been able to find the specific information for it, so I contacted Canon. I hope to hear back from them within a day, and I will let you know what I learn.
Of course, you could just leave the printer on all the time and it wouldn't lose its memory, but I assume that's a less than ideal solution.
