Re: MP830 printhead error message

I installed new cartridges, removed the printer head, cleaned it, put everyting back together, turned the printer off, unplugged it and turned it on again. The printer head error remains.

ebsonic - try powering down your computer, then printer. unplug printer for a few minutes. repower printer and then restart computer. Worked for me. Might be the sequence. Good Luck.

Re: MP830 printhead error message

I can't use the device at all because of the printer head error! Every button beep, beep,beep Totally unacceptable! I want the scanning function but can't use that because of the printer head error. How dumb isn't that. Canon get together your **bleep**. How is it even possible to lock down the whole device just because the printer head is an error on. You should give us a new printerhead for free! 

 

And by the way i can't get my device to get rid of the error on the printer head. Have read this thred as good as i can. But please is there any reset command so I can get by the error? Or a way to fix the error without buying a new printer hed?

To anyone else who stumples upon this post looking for a solution this is what worked for me:

 

1) lift cover

2) Remove ink cartridges

3) lift printerhead relase tab and remove printer head

4) clean back of printerhead metal contracts with alcohol wipe

5) clean ink from bottom of printerhead (optional)

6) clean metal contacts on printer

7) reinsert printerhead and ink cartridges

8) close cover 

 

Error gone; happy printing. Hope this works for anyone else having this problem!

NOTHING HAPPENS !!!!! Is this some sort of "Oh noooo you need to buy a new onee sorry"-**bleep** fron canon? They can **bleep** themselves. sorry it just pisses me off that nothing works and the only advice is to turn the machine off?? sorry but this is 2014 not 1914......... hope your printer start working soon!!!!!

Agree with you fully. Same problem with my printer. Only beep when pushing buttons. Why no ignore error button on the device. I want to use the scanner and don't give a **bleep** about the printer function. But I can't switch on the function buttons from printer mode to scanner mode. Only BEEP, BEEP, BEEP!!! What a joke// Angry Swedish guy

Re: MP830 printhead error message

Follow up.  After previously reporting that I was able to correct the problem, the demon returned and I was not able to correct regardless of what I tried.  Apparently Canon would like us to buy a new printer, which I did. However it was not a Canon brand and I am not likely to buy Canon again after this experience.

Re: MP830 printhead error message

I had posted some time ago that I had corrected my problem by sequentally powering down and then repowering my printer and computer.  As it turned out the fix was temporary and the error message came back.  I finally corrected the problem by throwing the printer out and replacing it with a HP laser printer.  Not likely I will go back to Canon in the forseeable future.
