Question about Canon MP830 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

My Canon MP830 suddenly refuses to print black. The tanks are apparently full or nearly so, and I have used deep cleaning utility several times to no avail. It refuses to print at all. This happened all at once.

Drivers...can really get corrupted for no reason, or a good reason(power glitches)..so..reload the drivers/print management software, remove the printer from the panel, unplug it from the computer, then reverse that. Should 'see' it, and you may be back in business soon.

Got backup?

My Pixma mp830 will not print black text. What do I do?


Hy, your printhead has dry ink inside. Try to put the print head in ditiled water ( NOT tap water) and live it over night. If that dosent help try in warm distiled water and live it over night. Be careful not to put the print head in the printer when is wet...let it dry for 2-3 hours. If still dosent work you need to replace the printhead.

Printer not printing black


First of all the print head is clogged just because you have tried to print repeatedly while some of the cartridges are empty. This results ink burn in the nozzle and clog. My recipe: Heat some drinking water in the kettle (70-80 C). Put the head in it and shake gently several times until ink is completely clean (10 minutes). Change the water do the same again. Change the water again (70-80 C) this time put a spoon full of apple vinegar (becomes a natural acidic solution very dilute) shake again, clean with cotton stick. I did it and started to love my mp800 again as much as I just bought it, all colours come back and started to print superior photos again......

We have a MP830 Canon - Faxes/copies are printing with text missing; appears to be missing every three lines or so. I have cleaned the printer head; auto aligned it but still printing with missing text. ...


I service this unit a lot for print quality issues, and most of them come from using non-Canon brand ink. There is a solvent quality to the Canon ink that helps keep the printhead from clogging.
If you are not using it, I recommend it, especially for the big #5 ink tank.
Alignment has nothing to do with the missing print.
Use the cleaning utility in the maintenance area of the printer driver utilities to clean the printhead.
Run the nozzle check, and you should see improvement with each cleaning. Do not run the cleaning more than maybe 5 times, and never use the deep cleaning, you are just wasting a lot of ink.
If you don't see any improvement, stop cleaning and take the unit in for service - we have sonic washers and other effective methods for cleaning and flushing the printheads without damage.
You can replace the printhead yourself, but it will cost less to have it cleaned.

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.

All of a sudden my Canon MP830 is printing only very light, unclear very light black lines on the chapter of my dissertation I am trying to print. All the ink tanks are full & I've done 2 deep...


Doesn't matter if the ink tanks are full. They may also have dry ink on headers. You could try to draw a black rectangle in MS Paintor any other software and try to print it at the best quality. You also could try to remove the black cartridge and see if it leave a ink stain on a absorbant paper (like a napkin). If does not leave a ink stain it means that the ink is dry.

If this is the case you may try to boil some water. When the water is boiled take it away from the fire and sink the cartridge into the boiled water and keep it there until the water cool down.
