Most printers will have the print head come to center when you open the cover (has to be on). Than it is just a matter of either opening the top of the print head and then pulling out the cartridge, or just grabbing the cartridge and pulling it out if there isn't a lid. If the printer is not printing than maybe you have to reseat the cartridge. If this is correct I can see why it is telling you to remove the print head.

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

How can i set up the printer to this computer?


depending on it's age, it could be a Parallel, a Serial, or a USB printer....

You will also need the drivers for it...Note: it is sometimes known as a Zebra printer. HOW you connect it to your PC depends on the connection. WHEN you install the drivers also depends on what connection type it is (USB: do not connect printer until the driver software tells you to, the others are OK to connect first...but NOT while the PC is ON....especially for a serial printer.)

UPS used to use those (they may still,) and might have drivers you can use....they wern't for USB when I used them, but they may have now...

When i started to print it always gets errors ..always appears "cancel printing"..


Possible that there are errors in the software and so needs a reset. So remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

Cannon pxima MP 357 no printing & search for e 5200 error to the manual user guide


error 5200 means the printer is unable to detect ink cartridge.

I do suggest you remove the ink cartridges from your printer. Examine the surface contact to where the terminals inside the printer touches. Clean this surface with clothe moistened with alcohol.
After that reinstall the printer and see if the printers successfully detect the cartridges..

Press the stop / reset or the cancel / resume button (the button with inverted triangle enclosed in a circle) hold it for about 5 seconds until the printer self restart.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.


Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep

Printer Drive Problem


Since the printer is working the drivers are installed correctly. The drivers help the computer recognize and operate your printer. The error that you are recieving is from the program called MFL Pro Suite. If you still have the CD you can reinstall the software and this error should go away. If you found solution this helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101
