    Neither procedure worked. Does it need a new lamp?

Hello

Follow the below steps in order to clear the error:

1.With printer OFF press and hold resume
2.while holding it down push and hold Power button
3.Release resume whilst still holding down power, the light should be green (not flashing)
4.Push resume once (orange) twice (Green)and a third time (orange)
5.release power button.
6.Then power it off and on again after it's finished making any noises and settled down.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then you can reset the printer by following the below steps:


1, Power off the printer
2, Unplug the printer's power cord, wait 5 seconds then replug
the power cord in.
3, Hold the Power button for 6 Beeps
4, Release the Power Button

This will reset the printer and should resolve error problem.

Good luck.

    Hello, sorry to be dim, but can't see a labeled 'resume' button to hold down. Do you mean the 'OK' button in the middle of the circle please?

  • jeannie lindley May 21, 2013

    Also, tried the 2nd solution too. Unplugged, replugged and held the ON/OFF button down. No beeps, so is the ON/OFF not the POWER button?

Just out of the blue? Did it work recently and just stopped for no reason? You are certain it was working? Does it attempt to scan? Do you hear the parts moving inside when you scan? Do you try to scan with the buttons on the printer, or from software inside of windows? If software, what software is it?

Thanks

Tim

SOURCE: I have a canon mp830 error code 6a00.

That error means the purge assembly is jammed. Check for paper caught in the right side where the printhead parks, if all clear you will need a new purge assembly. A shop repair for sure....

The scanner lock switch may be in the locked position. Lift the cover and check the slide switch located on the top front left. If this is not the problem, you will have to have a service center look at the problem.

SOURCE: Canon MP830 Error Code 6AOO

The error seems to indicate a failed sheet feed, check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper, however I have heard that this can also be caused by a flaky sensor in the paper path.....

apparently the best way to deal with this is to turn it upside down and give it a shake.

hope this helps

Canon mp-830 error code 5010


That code is a scanner error. The scanner unit can not detect the home position or the scanner unit warming up is not done properly at power on. Most of the time the Scanner unit needs to be replaced.

Canon site if the link does not work just go to canon.com -> support-> select Multifinction --> Inkjet --> Pixma MP830

Then type in - error code 5000 - (Leave off the " - "
Select #3 - ERROR LCD: Error code (5xxx through 9xxx) appears on the display -

1. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
2. Press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF to reset the printer
3. Removing paper jams MP800R / MP830 / MP530
4. The MP830 may require repair
5. Unlock the scanner lock switch (MP800R / MP830)

The links above detail each instruction. If they do not work here then got directly to the Canon Site.

Basically at one point there was a paper jam so clear it and then reset the machine.
Worked for me. Good luck to you :)
