It can have a lot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corresponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.


Also try:

Opening up the case so you can get to the side where the power pack is located and then disconnecting the small plug connecting it to the printer circuit boards, wait 10 seconds, reconnect the plugs again the printer and then re-connect the external power lead.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Error code P03. It won't print, it doesn't make any noise when I turn it on, and I don't see any traces of paper.



Error code PO3 is caused by Timing Disk dirty / damaged.
Please use this methods
1. Check the timing disk sensor located to the left of the printer

And start to print... thanks

MY CANON MP830 WILL DISPLAY A "ERROR 5100" USUALLY BEFORE OR AFTER PRINTING. IF I RESTART IT WILL PRINT ONCE, THEN DISPLAY "ERROR 5100." I CAN'T FIND ANY PAPER JAM IN PRINTER. HOPE YOU CAN HELP. RAY...


Other than:
1) checking that no paper is jammed in the printer (don't forget to check the rear access door for paper jammed internally)

2) holding the <On/Off> button until the display goes blank, then waiting ten seconds before pressing <On/Off> button again (to reset the unit) and

3) checking that the ink cartridges are properly installed,

if the problem persists, your Canon MP830 may require repair.
