Canon MP830 power outage while printing

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 have a similar problem. My MP830 was turned off during a thunderstorm, but the phone line for the fax was plugged in. The printer will no longer turn on, no power whatsoever. Is there a reset button somewhere?

    Power outage during a Thunderstorm caused my printer to go dead. Unplugging for 20 Minutes fixed it (as suggested on this web site).

    It Works!
    Had uneven power in house; UPS kicked in but ran out of juice; MP830 would not respond. believe it or not, it worked. waited about 20 minutes.

    Thanks all of you, This actually just worked for me also! I was fearing having to buy another,(and afert getting all new inks for it. By the way, my outage had nothing to do with a power loss,( Go Figure). Thanks again

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.

    My MP830 would not switch on after a power outage, even though it was plugged into a surge protector and all the other stuff plugged in there was fine. I thought it was fried, but I took the advice here, unplugged it for 20 minutes and then plugged it back in and VOILA! It is fine. I'll admit I was skeptical but am thrilled that the simple fix worked. June 2010

    Thank you and thanks to fixya. I was not home when we had a power failure. the only clue was an assortment of flashing 12:00 on a few electronic devices. In a house full of electronic devices, nothing was affected. So I thought. I went to my office to print a document. It been months since I'd used the printer. As ofthers describe--no dice. But 20 minutes disconnection and my MP830 is ready for action. Spectacular and silly. Thank you so much. Eli In Cleveland.

    Thank you so much for posting this!! I have had my mp830 for a long long time now and I just bought a whole bunch of ink for it...then the power failure. Tried everything that everyone else did,e ven tot he point of taking it apart. Then I read the above comment on just unplugging it for 20 mintues. Worked like a charm!! I I really didn't want to have to get a new printer since none of the ones that are out now use the kind of ink I just bough! thank you thank you thank you!!

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

Canon MP830 will not print Error code 5C10, And 5100 donaldbetty@juno.com


5C10 seems to indicate a paper jam. 5100 indicates either a paper jam or ink tanks not seated properly.

A) Paper jam: There is a rear cover on this model. Many paper jams cannot be seen from the outside. Sometimes even a scrap of paper from a previous jam will disrupt the paper path.

B) Follow your manual for installation of the ink tanks. Remove and replace the ink tanks carefully following the instructions.

C) Should these remedies not fix the problem, you can try resetting the device:

1) Press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display on the machine goes blank. (If this is unsuccessful, unplug the power cord).

2) Wait approx. 10 seconds and power back on. Wait until the printer completes its startup routine before trying another print job.

3) If solution fails, your MP 830 may require repair

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.

CANON MP830 is giving me an error code 5010. What does this mean and how do you fix it?


This error refers to the following possible problems:

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.

3) Your MP 830 requires repair service.

My MP830 will not print. It shows error code 5C10 and makes a loud, quick repeating clanking noise. Any suggestions?


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:

1) 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 cord.

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.

No power


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)

Won't power up


I fixed it! Instead of 20 minutes I unplugged it for about 4 hours and everything is working fine. It's a moody ol' girl.
