    Worked with old microsoft, but will not print from any new microsoft programs, such as word, powerpoint and excel. Also will not print from adobe reader 8. Please help, I am a student who bought this pricey printer to replace my multipass when it died, in order to ensure that my research papers would print!

    Ditto...Can't even copy in

  • Maggie B May 11, 2010

    How "new" is the printer? Just out of the box today?? Have you tried printing directly from the unit by trying to make a copy of something? (Put some paper w/ words or pictures on in face-down on the glass, push the 'copy' button, push the BLACK button and see if it comes out black and white.)

    Let me know, ok?

My Canon MP830 prints only colors, not blacks?

have you checked the ink levels? sometimes the black runs out before other colors because it is used more commonly.
it could be that the device is unable to detect that it has no black ink and therefore will not notify you that it has run out.
i suggest trying a replacement ink and seeing if that solves the problem, if not, then there is a problem with the hardware of the printer.

Canon mp830 printing pinkish instead of blue


You have stick residue in the print head. Just run the print nozzle for 2-3 times to get the correct color.

Also, be sure that all ink cartridges are full because if one of the color is empty, you cannot achieve the correct color when one ink color is missing.

Please let me know if you need more help

Want to print black only mp830

When you do a print request and get the printer window. click on the properties button on the top right side of the window. This will open another window. Look for the color tab and select Print in gray scale. This will cause the printer to print in black only. This will change to black printer only for this print job. If you want to change to printing in grayscale or black only all the time, open your printers and faxes window, right click on the printer you want to change, on the general tab of the window that opens, click on printer preferences, look for the color tab and select print in grayscale.

I hope you have found this helpful.

While printing in grayscale mode it is using color cartridges. It should use onli main black 520.

Open the printer "print options" or "Print Settings" and select the "Black ink only". I am not very sure about your model, but when you carefully check, you'll see "print in color" "Print in greyscale" it should be somewhere below the "print in greyscale". Hope this helps. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

My mp830 will not print black only color

I had the same problem. I went through all the troubleshooting of cleaning the printhead several times. The Nozzle check (found under Printing Preferences/Maintenance tab) kept coming out without the PGBK section (Black) printed on it. All the colors printed. If your see any of the colors missing, it is probably the same problem---it needs the Print Head replaced.
Part # QY6-0061-010. I was able to find it at Canyon Computer Supplies in Phoenix, but you can also order them via the internet from multiple outlets. Mine cost $59.57 with tax...much cheaper than a new printer. The replacement is very easy...Canon has info on how to do it at ...if the link doesn't get you right there, search MP830, Support & Service, then search print head & you should find it. Once you remove all the print cartriges (printer ON), the gray lever on the left side lifts up and releases the print head...which is the unit that houses all the print cartridges. I just put the new print head in, replaced all the ink cartridges, did a nozzle check...and it worked!! I love fixing things myself.

Printing only in black

When you get the printer option page click on properties, in the main page there select gray scale printing. Click OK to get back to the print page and ok there to print.

Unable to duplex

Make sure that duplex printing is enabled in the drivers when you print. It should work. You might have to manually tick that option and it might not be enabled by default.
