Tips to fix this error code on your Canon printer: ? Turn off your Canon printer for some time, wait for at least 10 minutes and then restart your printer by turning it on
? Check whether the paper tray is set correctly or not. If any foreign substance is obstructing the path of printing, you should remove that object
? Verify whether any tiny object or simply a torn piece of paper is present in your Canon printer. If so, remove it gently to experience smooth printing
? Try to clean other components of your printer machine which includes the print head or the encoder strip.

Something is in the way of the printer carriage unit. See video of another Canon printer that I had a problem with:

The print spooler service is not running iam using MP830 printer

There are a few different causes for this. All of them leading to the "spooler" service to stop running.

The most common remedy is to just reboot the computer. If this fails, there may be a corrupted document in the spool queue that is crashing the service repeatedly here are the steps to clear it out:

For Windows XP (your computer says "start" in the bottom left)
1. Go to the "Start" menu and click "run"
2. in the window that comes up enter "net start spooler"
3. Try printing again.
4. If the problem continues then:
5. Click "start" and "Run" again.
6. enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and click ok and delete any items in there.
7. Close that window.
8. Restart the computer.
You should now be able to print.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:
1. Click the blue "Start" orb
2. In the search box enter "command"
3. The computer will return with several items
4. Right click on the black item that says "command prompt"
5. click "run as administrator"
6. in the black window type "net start spooler" and press enter
7. try printing again, if it fails continue to step 8
8. open the blue start orb
9. in the search box enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS"
9.5. If you get a permissions message click continue
10. delete all items from there.
11. back in the black command prompt box, type "net start spooler" again
12. You should be able to print.

If you still cannot print, you may have one or more corrupted print drivers. In this case you will need to delete and re-install your printers from the computer using instructions from the manufacturer.

There seem to be a number of involved suggested fixes for the 5C10 error code.

Please go to this web page, and click the "Service and Support" link.
This will display a "Please enter your question" field. Type "5C10" into the field and click the Search button.

Three new links will eventually display:

  • Removing paper jams MP800R / MP830 / MP530
  • The MP830 may require repair

Click each link to see if the solution provided is appropriate to your situation.

Got a new replacement mp830 under a service contract. Will print in all applications but one--a desktop program called Publisher Pro. I have the correct default printer selected and no error message comes...

If it's a replacement MP830, you need to go into control panel, printers and make sure you delete your old printer. Windows will install your new one and call it copy 1. Your program could be trying to print to your old printer.

I have a canon mp830. I had the 6A00 error code.

Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

MP830 5100 Error

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
