Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have tried to reset unit by pressing the start button 10 times and then holding button in for 10 seconds then plugging printer back into the power source. I obtain the same results 1 quick beep and the screen illuminates for a very short time the printer immediately shuts down. This has been a great printer so far!
Either a power supply fault or there is a fault in the main circuit board. You may find a replacement power unit (they are held in by two clips ) at an electronics recycler or auction site like e-bay, but the main board is not an available part.
