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

1 Answer

Printer problem Hey Jeap.... I have a Canon MP830 and when I print from the ADF, I get a line going down the page. No line when I print from the glass though. All print cartridges are full. Can't find anything in the manual for such an animal. Any ideas? thanks Rose

    When faxing or copying on the MP830 through the ADF a line appears all the way through the document.

    The solution was to clean the small glass pane on the left hand side. All good, thanks for your solution....

    I had the same problem, with 2 vertical lines. You could barely see the smudge on the left narrow window. Cleaning it did the trick. I would have never seen that! Thanks!

    we have just set up our brand new mp 830 and both the scanner and the photocopier print out a full page of lines SOLID nothing but lines ready to take it back. It prints from the computer fine.

During a normal scan, the light source moves across the large glass pane reading the entire area. When using the ADF, the light source remains stationary below the small small glass pane to the left. Check for smudges or specs on this glass area. We had the same problem, and cleaning the small glass pane worked.

    Wow; it worked perfectly! Thanks a lot! I had been scanning from the glass for over a month and thought this would have been a big repair or possibly a replacement issue.

How come my canon mp830 printer prints a black line on left side when using ADF?

there are many possibilities that you will have to check out for: 1)either there is any dust got collected in the ADF assembly.so that dust is also coming in the prints. 2) of there is any thin object like hair got stuck up in the inner side of the ADF assembly.so whenever the print comes this copy of hair comes in every print out. 3) also there can be a slight crack in the ADF glass assembly.so this slight crack is giving the line in prints. 4) also the other reason can be that the black cartridge is low on ink.in this case it needs replacement of cartridge or the cartridge refilling. ----- so the first step you can follow is that you take a cleaning brush and clean all the dust on the upper ADF glass assembly where you place the paper.then take a moist tissue and clean the glass of the ADF assembly. then check out.if still the same problem then take a air blower and blow the air in the inner as well as outer area of ADF assembly and check out.if still the same problem then check out if any crack on the ADF assembly glass.if no crack then its the fault in the inner side of glass.for this the assembly and printer both needs to be disassembled.but this will require proper tools.its advisable to get it done by local printer/copier repair technician familiar with this brand/model. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Canon MP830 Scanning from ADF..paper stops halfway, hangs...

I had been moving some furniture and I think I inadvertently knocked a usb cable loose. I also had it going to a hub that was possibly not working. when I made sure everything was hooked up correctly and directly, it was working fine again. I hope this helps someone.

In copy or scan mode, the page is almost all solid black

The scan assembly has gone out. Parts are not available except the entire scan assembly, I can get you a part number and price if you like.

Black lines

Here you go.
1. Put a paper on the glass don't use the ADF see if you printed copy has a black line on it.

If you do not have a black line on it, do the following.

Lift up the ADF tray go in to additional functions #6 Adjust/Clean and then #2 clean the ADF feeder.

The roller is in the top of the ADF feeder at the right and is white in color. When you press the (set) button you will see it spin.

Also clean the glass you have some whiteout on it. (Look at the glass real good when cleaning it).
