Hi is it possible to change the scanner lamp on a CANON MP830 ? TKS

Once you have the covers off its just a case of swopping the scanners over. there is no setup of the scanner. Its just works. Well hopefully...

The error message- Release the scanner lock- came on with the scanner UNLOCKED in the first place. I've troubleshooted and (flipped switch) unlocked scanner- several times- and turned MP830 off and...

I am not 100% sure on this but I do know that most printers and scanners when straight out of the box sometimes have tape or some foam that they use to keep the bits that move around from moving. I would check your manual from end to end and if you dont find anything in it then I would contact tech support for Canon as it may be that this is a bug of some sort that they may already have a fix for.

You need to check the operator's manual. For the messages it gives, there is usually a solution for it.

Canon site if the link does not work just go to canon.com -> support-> select Multifinction --> Inkjet --> Pixma MP830

Then type in - error code 5000 - (Leave off the " - "
Select #3 - ERROR LCD: Error code (5xxx through 9xxx) appears on the display -

1. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
2. Press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF to reset the printer
3. Removing paper jams MP800R / MP830 / MP530
4. The MP830 may require repair
5. Unlock the scanner lock switch (MP800R / MP830)

The links above detail each instruction. If they do not work here then got directly to the Canon Site.

Basically at one point there was a paper jam so clear it and then reset the machine.
Worked for me. Good luck to you :)

Instruction manual

Open the top cover to the scanner, the lock switch is on the left hand side of the glass. It is about 1 1/2 inches oblong and SLIDES back and forth. The switch is black with 3 lines across it. Are you able to see it now? And your answer is ????

Scanner lock is on

Do you not have a manual or 'get you started sheet?' It is the first thing you do when unpacking a scanner is to unlock the shipping lock. In all probability it is under the scanner base so if it is a lifting item[to access the printer] check there,or on the backplate of the scanner where all the sockets are. Failing that get onto the Tech support site at Canon.
