    I cleaned the printer head contacts with a piece of paper and used a q tip to clean the bottom of the printer head with water from the faucet. I also cleaned the printer pins with a q-tip and I still get the same message install printer head. Is there anything else I can do.

    I liked this printer because it was easy to fill the cartridges with a refill kit. Is there another type of printer you would recommend that would be easy for me to refill the cartridges with out damaging the cartridge.

In this printer the head is separate from the cartridges and in a single block. The cartridges go in it and the block goes in the print head carrier. Because of that in time the connections between the head block and the carrier gets dirty and the heads can no longer communicate and be recognized by the mainboard of the printer.
To clean those contacts remove the cartridges and lift the grey lever that holds the print head block secure in the carrier - the lever goes up from the front and to the rear. Now just tilt the bloc forward and lift it up. With a rough piece of paper wash and clean the contacts at the rear of the block; then take a q-tip and clean the contact pins from the carrier. At the end put all back together and try again.
If the heads are still not recognized then the dirt has corroded the contacts. This is unfixable and because there are no replacement parts it means that the printer is dead. Time for a new one.

    Just one thing left : make sure that the white ribbon cable that connects the carrier to the mainboard is intact and firmly plugged in. If it is then the printer is indeed dead, nothing more can be done to save it.

Ip4850 flashes 5 times


According to the Official Canon knowledge base, it means that either print head is not installed at all, not installed correctly or the print head is defective. Install or reinstall the print head or if that doesn't help, replace the print head with a new one...

Also your print head nozzles can be clogged with dry ink, so before changing the print head with a new one, try to clean the print head with some warm water so the dry ink can come out of it... If that is of no help, as I said above - buy a new print head and install it or buy a new printer, if buying a new p. head is too expensive compared to a price of a brand new printer...

False ink empty


Are you sure its exclamation mark?..
This warning message related to print head. (warn out). When you are replacing ink tube assembly use dummy print heads to do the priming (new ink tubes are empty & they have to fill with ink)..
Action: Remove all cartridges and print heads, switch on the printer follow the screen message.(Insert cartridges first next dummy print heads).once its recognizes cartridges then it switch over to print heads,insert dummy print heads. Once printer recognized the dummy print heads, printer will perform priming, during priming dummy print heads will filled with respective inks.(follow the display message)Remove dummy print heads & insert normal print heads. Wait till printer recognizes print heads, load the paper & wait till performs the calibration, once calibration is successfully done issue closed.
If calibration not successfully done, check align print out for which print head is not printed properly, replace it..
Pl ensure that minimum 50% ink levels required in cartridges before performing the priming. Best of luck..

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Will not print and error message come up.


The print head has failed, or the logic board is faulty. The print head is cheaper. Try replacing that.

Hello i have a service light on saying print head tempreture,would i need a new print head ,please help thanks


hi,
this service message just warns you that the print head temperature is not normal. just give it some time to get to room temperature and then continue printing. if the problem persists, try troubleshooting the printer or test print to check the condition of the printer.

cheers
