Canon Pixma MP810 will not power on at all. Is there a fuse? No info in manual. Unit is about 3 years old.

Follow these steps: start off removing the ink tank holder (held in place by the grey lever) and cleaning it with an alcohol solution and paper towel. When the ink tanks are not in use they slide to the right side and rest on a pad that collects excess ink. Mine was loaded up and gel like so I cleaned it as well.
With the ink tank removed  place your MP600 upside down on the table with a towel underneath to protect the lid, then gave it a few good hits on either side of the lower paper tray.

Duplex printing is only related if the imaged page was not allowed to dry before being re-inserted into the tray.

Was the document blurred? It it was, then ink could have transferred to the rollers.

Since you have cleaned the rollers, then you either have worn rollers or or a worn "Pick" magnet. The tray spring that pushes the tray forward could also be worn.

Oddly enough since you raise the media issue, if you are using "Long Grain" paper as opposed to "Short Grain" paper that could be a source of the problem Short Grain paper allows the page to be more flexible when bending. Long grain paper is stiffer and is tougher to bend.

Its rare that this is a problem but it could happen. Also, make sure you are using paper that is meant for an ink jet printer.

In an ink jet printer, the ink is absorbed into the page, while a laser use heat and pressure to fuse the image onto the top of the page.

Please let me know if this helped you or if you need additional assistance.

You need to change the orientation in the printers screen.
Start>Control Panel>Printers
Select your printer
Properties>General>Printer Preferences>Page Setup
Click on Portrait>OK
Your printout should now be in Portrait mode.

From FixYa:

It's possible that a replacement power board would fix the printer. Open the printer and get to the power board. Check the fuse on the board. If it's OK, then you need to change the board.

Hope this helps.

Keep looking through the menus, until you see a list of languages, including 'english' as one of the choices. Select it.

This is cased by a dirty paper feed path or paper feed sensor so it will need cleaning and blowing out. Make sure that all the internal paper guides and separators are free of obstruction. Make sure that the sensors are all clean that the internal paper guides are all in place and operate freely. Also clean it with a vacuum with a soft haired brush tool to avoid any damage. Also fan the paper before using it and do not overload the print paper tray. Also check that the pick up rollers are not worn or contaminated with dirt / debris etc. Also make sure that the print tray is not overloaded and make sure that the paper is not to tightly held by the tray side guide.

Also check the paper pick up for wear as this will cause additional pages to be collected and fed through the printer. Make sure that you fan the paper before use ant it is of suitable quality and weight.

6A00 means the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is jammed and cannot move. If nothing is caught in it you will need to have it replaced. The part is around $30.00

System error code 6010 means "The directory has been disabled for encryption." This error code may also display as "ERROR_DIR_EFS_DISALLOWED" or as the value 0x177A.
But without knowing the make.model of your printer hard to say more

It means the carriage is not lifting and and the paper feed can not run. Sounds like either a paper jam inside or something fell in that doesn't belong. A flashlight and small mirror will help you look inside.

May be MP Navigator not compatible with Kaspersky 2009.

If you use KIS or KAS to protect your computer,disable KIS/KAS protection and try again.

I have same problem with my MP150 and after disable protection of my KIS2009, MP Navigator work perfectly.

Sorry for my bad English. I'm Vietnamese.

I found this on another site. It is for error code 5100 but since nobody seems to find the exact answer for 5110, maybe you should give it a try. If this helps, email a "thank you note" to the person who wrote this, his email address is at the end of this message.

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have a lot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100. Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.
