Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Have you tried cleaning the adf passage and other passages?
Before you start with the instructions below, remove all the cartridges, turn off the machine, remove papers, unplug the power cord and the usb cable (if any).
First of all, lift up the (auto document feeder) adf towards outside (as shown below):
Check for any foreign particles like broken pieces of paper, etc.. If possible, clean the gears and other components.
Also, open lift-up the scanning unit, clean the passage as shown below:
Also pull out the Feeder (not the Auto Document Feeder/ADF) and clean everything properly.
Now reconnect or reinstall all the remove components, push in a paper (thicker paper like chart paper or photo paper) through the feeder passages, both ADF and front. Do this forcefully and now power on the Machine.
If there's no internal mechanism faulty or damaged components, this will definitely help you fix your issue.
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.

This error appears when a paper is jammed in the ADF or due to paper bits stuck behind/near the rollers. Remove the two screws at the back of the rollers. The side plastic/top pieces rotate up and can be removed. Four screws hold the ADF device in the lift-up top. I removed these 4 screws. With the power disconnected, I unplugged a wire assembly and unscrewed an electrical wire. This allowed me to remove the entire ADF assembly from the lid. At the end with the rollers, there is a metal plate with 6 screws, remove them. Beneath this metal plate are two springs, three rollers and a metal bar set in place into slots. You can look directly into the space hidden behind the rollers. Reconnect back everything in the same way.
After doing this if issue is not resolved then you’ll need to check for a broken gear/part. The rear of the ADF has a silver-grey plastic piece which covers the feed motor and gears. You gain access by removing the one Phillips screw, opening the lid, and carefully prying the retaining lip at the right end of the silver-grey piece until it lifts up. The piece is then removed by sliding the retaining "leg" free at the right end of the piece.
Inside, you will see some white plastic gears. One gear is mounted on a floating idler arm. This gear controls feed and reject (I think). The feeder fails when this idler does not flip freely from one position to the other. Carefully place a SMALL amount of very light (low viscosity) oil on the idler arm and verify that if easily moves back and forth. Test the unit before replacing the silver gray cover piece. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
