Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I've recenty gotten my hands on a Mp830 that was hit by lightning, and does not turn on.
I've taken it apart and by swapping power supplies (Canon AC Adapter K30263). i've gotten it to work. Called canon, and they do not sell that individual item.
So to the people who're having problems with their printer turning on, replace the power adapter if you can get your hands on one. Ebay has a printer on there right now that turns on, but has other problems.

Many thanks trubbanot. The unplugging the printer for ~20 minutes worked perfectly for me two. We actually have two Canon MP830 printers in the house. Both stopped working after a power outage today. The unplug/then plug trick worked for both.
Can't thank you enough!

Wow, the unplug and wait trick worked perfectly. I had to reinstall the power pack because I was sure it was bad. After reading this, I reinstalled the pack and plugged it back in, and WALA!!! it worked! Outstanding!

what if you change it to print from the other tray.
It sounds like one of the two springs are damaged underneath the machine causing it not to lift.
i would look underneath and inspect the springs
hope this helps

The 6500 error code is a logic board error code. Sounds like it needs new logic board assembly.

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

Unfortunately these are considered disposable printers.
If it won't power on at all even in a known good power outlet there isn't much you can do as the cost to repair it out of warranty would cost more than to simply replace it.
Other than checking the power outlet and the power cable nothing else to do.

If the inner cover is open when starting normal printing,close it before pressing [OK] on the machine.Do not open or close the inner cover when printing.This may damage the machine.
