My MP830 completely lost power while printing. I tried plugging and unplugging the power cord ( into both the power strip and wall ) with no avail. Tried unplugging and plugging back in USB cable, still nothing. Both power strip and wall work ( as I have phone and computer plugged in ). Any ideas?
I followed the recommendations for the Pixma MP830. We had a bad storm 2 nights ago. The printer wouldn't power up, we thought it was fried. We removed the power supply from the back and googled the power supply part number. This website popped up and I read there were other folks with the same problem. Unplugging it for 20 minutes solved the "no power" problem. I cant believe it worked, this saved us at least 200.00 bucks. I love the net...Thanks

You can first try reseting your printer by unplugging all the cords for 30min. and then plug it back. Please do a deep cleaning, align the print head, and also do a nozzle check.If you still have the problem then replace the print head.
This error refers to the following possible problems:
1) Unlock the scanning unit: Before turning on the power, open the scanner cover, slide the release button to the "unlock" position and close the cover. Turn off the power for approx. 5 seconds. Power back on.
2) Reset the device: Press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display on the machine goes blank. (If this is unsuccessful, unplug the power cord). Wait approx. 10 seconds and power back on. Wait until the printer completes its startup routine before trying another print job.
When the printer is not functioning properly it may need to be reset.
Make sure that this code is not being generated from a paper jam.
Consult your manual for all the ways to check for paper jammed in the
printer. (You may not be able to see the paper jam).
Then try a reset as follows:
On the printer panel, press and hold the <On/Off> button for one
second (the display will go blank). If it does not, unplug the power
2) Wait approx. ten seconds. If unplugged, plug it back in. Otherwise, press the <On/Off> button again.
3) Wait for the machine to cycle through its startup routine before trying a print job.
I have two of these where I work and have seen this problem occur after power outages. I've been able to resolve it by unplugging the power and usb cable and letting it sit for 10-15 minutes . Plug everything back up and it works again (until the next power outage)
