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

1 Answer

Fresh ink appears on back of paper

I've had this printer for 8 months and it just recently started having issues with ink appearing on the back of a printed sheet of paper. The ink is showing up in varying degrees of heaviness. It is fresh ink.. As if the ink cartridge is spilling it out. It is not streaky, as if the interior is dirty. It appears to be a line made from a series of spots all in a row (on the same part of the page each time). Sometimes it will be a very heavy spot that will take a lot of time to dry. This only just began recently and isn't happening everytime I print. I've tried taking out the ink and putting a new cartridge in but that only stops the splotching temporarily... Any input or ideas would really help me. Thanks!

    The printer is at work.. I work with a small business. I will have to check to see if they have a warranty on it.. Thanks for your help.

    Is the drum the same as the print head? I found a replacement print head for $50.. Would that perhaps take care of the problem?

    I wrote to Canon and they will send a replacement.. Turns out if the printer was bought within the past year it automatically comes with a warranty! The folks there have been really helpful so far. Thanks for your help too!

I have an x6150 and it had been working fine. I ran out of ink and replaced the cartridge not too long ago. I printed a few items (not much) and all of a sudden when I hit print, it acts like it is...


Print quality issues could be due to clogged or dirty print cartridge nozzles. Try the steps below to improve print quality on your Lexmark X6150 printer:
  1. Load paper in the All-In-One.
  2. On the printer operator panel, press Copy.
  3. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
  4. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display.
  5. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
  6. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
You may also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's not a cartridge issue.

Dell 924 all in one will not print magenta


run a nozzle clean, perform the following steps:
  1. Verify the All-In-One Printer 924 is powered on and connected to a computer.
  2. Verify that the paper support (input tray) has clean, plain white paper loaded.
  3. Press the Menu button.
  4. Press the Down button until Mode: Maintenance appears on the LCD screen.
  5. Press the Menu button.
    The Dell 924 Maintenance Menu appears on the LCD screen.
  6. Press the Down button until Clean Cartridges appears on the LCD screen.
  7. Press the Start button.
    The AIO 924 prints the cleaning page. This process cleans the ink cartridges and resolves many print quality issues.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

WHITE LINES APPEARING IN TEXT AND GRAPHIC, ALTHOUGH ALL TEST PRINTS ARE O.K.


If its a canon, try this.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

It sounds like the nozzles may be blocked, if it has been left for 10 months will no ink - It will have dried up. It is probably worth you running a head cleaning procedure which can be done using the Epson software. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks Daniel
