My canon mp 730 has an alarm lit and says wrong cartridge. I tried removing print head and cleaning with alcohol...no luck...put in a different cartridge...no luck. What else can I do


On Canon that error means the printhead is bad, nothing to do with the inks. The translation from Japanese to English made the error confusing. You need to buy a new printhead, the part number is on the side of the printhead and starts with QY6-

Canon mp 730 prints colours BUT NO BLACK


Sounds like you need a printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00. The only other thing that could do that is the purge assembly if it's not cleaning the black part of the printhead properly.

MP 730 Printer alert flashing "wrong cartridge"


I had the same problem. I removed the cartridges and then the printerhead. I cleaned the printerhead with a piece of cloth and then replaced it and then the cartridges. This seems to have fixed the "wrong cartridge" problem for now. I was told by a friend that if the problem persits, replacing the printerhead may be a more permanent solution, but no guarantee.

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!
