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

PIXMA MP830 no power problem

Thanks for an easy and smart fix, Nostalgia! I was just getting ready to take the printer apart and look for a fuse when I was lucky enough to stumble on your solution. Had the same lightning issue....and was plugged into a surge protector....but my MP830 was totally evidence of power. I unplugged it for twenty minutes as you recommended....and now it's working like a charm. Thanks!

Hey, I'm glad to have helped. And thanks for letting me know.

One more thing that I found that helps me a lot...if you unplug the printers usb cable from your computer before you boot up or reboot the computer, your boot up time will (most likely) decrease substantially! Depending on your settings, the computer tries to read the memory card slots on the printer in an attempt to boot from them (just like booting from a cd or floppy) which adds major lag time to a boot up. Just plug the cable back in after the boot.

Let me know if this works for you as well!

I have a Pixma MP830. The printer was working without problems, one day simply doesn't turn on. It was settled in a room with some humidity can it be the problem? I want to know how to take it apart. In...

If you have no indication that there is any power, no lights, no movement, it is very likely that you need a logic board. The part costs more than the unit is worth. It wont do you any good to take it apart.

I am having problems with my PIXMA MP830 printer. The printer head does not move automatically like it used to. It is showing Error Code 6A00. How do I correct this problem? Thanks, Florencia Ortega

hello, sorry about failure, the problem is the purge unit, the pump section has come apart and jams, sometimes locking carrige in place, but i have also seen the wiping section jamming against the actual piece that makes contact with the printhead. if that is the issue. problem though is the carraige is locked on right side, that is hard, the covers will have to be removed. i found a way to repair the actual purge unit without replacing, it fairly easy, requires thin piece of metal and super glue to lock in place

You might try removing the printhead and turning on power, if you can't get it out you need a shop to take apart. The main logic board could be bad as well.

Canon PIXMA ip4500 will not turn on

Sounds like the power outage was a power surge and destroyed your printer, especially if your printer was not plugged into a power surge protector strip. Check with others in your apartment to see if they experienced the same. If so, your landlord may be responsible and can put in a claim. If your printer is still under warranty, contact Canon. Also, check to see if this item is covered by tenant insurance, if you have coverage. Hope this helps.

Canon MP830 power outage while printing

My MP830 did the same thing today. I thought it was toast. However through a Google search I found the following suggestion.

Unplug the MP830 for 20 minutes or more. Plug the MP830 back in and hit the power button.

To might great relief my MP830 powered up and is working just fine.
