Hi,

To my knowledge, only two (2) possible corrective actions:

  • clean the gold contacts of both the cartridge and the cartridge holder in the printhead; or
  • replace the printhead assembly, specifically the logic chip and sensor. Canon is aware of these issues and sells the entire assembly for less than 50USD.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

  1. First try this

  2. On the operator panel, press and hold the <ON/OFF> button for one second. (The display will go blank.)

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.

  3. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON/OFF> button again.

  4. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.if it fails

Remove and reset the print head even this fails then you must replace print head unit on the printer


Good luck...

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-

It is probably one of the cartridges. Usually, when the message "wrong cartridge" appears, the cartridge is faulty.

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!
