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

Canon pixma mp830

Hello, I have a new Canon Pixma mp830 printer. When I loaded the disk it asked what type of printer.The one I bought wasn't listed, but the computer recognized the printer, and asked if I had the disk. Then a message came up that I didn't have enough screen resolution. It said I only have 640 by 480 screen resolution but I needed a minimum of 800 x 600.It said to adjust the screen resolution and try again. In my control panel under display, it would not allow me to adjust it. The instructions said to unplug the printer from the port and to try the disk in the D: drive again. That did not work. I then went and bought a Compact FS 7600 monitor which has 1200 by 800 screen resolution and I still get the same message. Would it matter that the computer is older? It is a Compact Computer and it is loaded with Windows 98. What would cause this problem and what would you suggest I do? Can the computer only generate or put out the 640 by 480 screen resolution? Is that what could be happening? Please respond when you have any solutions!! Thanks so much!!!

Go to this link first, 6 down will give you the latest drivers for your model; uninstall everything you have installed and start again; http://alpha02.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 This link gives you all the various guides and manuals if you need them; http://alpha02.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?RQF=MENU&RQS=WWUCA910&LA=1173934829986&SV=WWUCA900&menu=MA&TRF=MAIN Page 181 of the manual discusses problems with driver installation. Once you have updated the drivers, if the problem still occurs then check again in control panel - if you still can't change the resolution, then the problem is possibly with windows or the graphics chip/card is too basic - use the display troubleshooter in windows to see if there is anything you can do. Some older computers were limited in the resolutions they could display - if you can let me have the model number of the computer i can hopefully check for you. Hope this helps :)

On Canon Pixma MP830 printer the alarm is blinking and the window read error 6500. I can't find that number of the manual. What do I have to do in order to print again. Thanks. ...

Hello,

The error 6500 refers to other hardware error. This error results from printer hardware failure and the only solution is replacing the malfunctioning hardware.

It is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you better ask for replacement.

I have just bought a new computer with Windows 7 as my o/s. I cannot get it to detect my Pixma MP830 printer.

How can the computer detect the printer if you have not loaded the software. Therefore insert the CD which came with the printer and load the software/driver.

My Canon PIXMA MP830 all-in-one is saying "the type of printhead is incorrect, install the correct printhead."

The cartrige is what holds the ink, the printhead is the device that puts the ink onto the paper.

So if your out of ink, then you need a new cartridge, if you have a new cartridge and you are having issues printing good quality, then you may need a new printhead.

you can get the ink here: http://printerinkcartridgesearch.printcountry.com/canon-pixma-mp830-ink-cartridges.htm

printhead is about 49.95
