Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Your printhead solution

I've taken the printhead out of the MP830 and am looking at the back of it right now. I see a couple of dozen metal pads on it where it interfaces in the printer. But I don't see any pins. Can you tell me what you're looking at?

When you take the printhead out, you only see the contacts (metal pads) which make contact with the printhead cradle found fixed on the printer shaft. The pins will be seen on this part and not on the printhead.

On my canon mp830 i have full ink however its printing nothing but very faint


You will need a shop to replace the purge assembly if it's not cleaning and priming the printhead properly, also you can replace the printhead yourself as they do wear out or plug when not used at least a couple times each week.

Canon mp830 all-in-one printer will not power on


When the printhead goes bad it can keep it from turning on. If the carriage is not locked on the right, remove the inks and printhead and try power again. If it comes on you need a new printhead, QY6-0061-000, don't put the old one back in again as it could ruin the main logic pcb.

HOW DO I TAKE OUT THE PRINT HEAD FROM A MP830?


With power on, you open the top cover just like you are changing inks. You remove all the inks and set aside. Now lift the gray handle on the left side of the carriage. The printhead can now be taken out by tipping the top side out first.

6A00 means the purge assembly is stuck, on the right where the printhead rests when turned off. impossible to clean without disassembly. Best to replace #qm2-3032-000, about $19.95

On my MP 830 Canon Error on my computer 5C10 Error on printer screen 6A00 Print head moved top the far right and appears to be jammed Had removed and cleaned printhead, reinstalled printhead and inkwells...


Hi
This happens a lot
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

CANON MP830 all in one is sayin" the type of printhead is incorrectn Install the correct Printhead."


Hi follow the instructions as above...
ie Remove inks and print head...

But instead...
Whilst Canon print head is out...

Use cotton wool and alcohol and clean electrical contacts on back of print head and where they make contact inside printer.

Then install print head and inks and test.

If it does not work you may need to replace print head.
