Question about Canon Printers & Copiers

Canon printer MP830 won't print. Error report: "The type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head." Turning off and disconnecting the printer did not fix the problem. I do not know what the "print head" is.

If this works before without problem then try by reinstalling again the driver of your printer and see the result.

That is either a defective printhead (more likely), or a bad ink carrage connection cable, or a fault on the main board (unfrequent).

First the ribbon cable to the print head should be tested, then the printhead replaced.

A fault on the mainboard is unfrequent , but always possible, in that case it will be beyond repair.

Go to www.canontechsupport.comand follow the thread to get to the support for your mutifunctionmachine and error message. Removing all the tanks and reseating theprinthead worked for me, although it appears it didn't work for others.
I carefully wiped some of the ink from the edges of the printheadassembly, but don't know if this really did anything. My 830 is about18 months old and I have been using both Cartridge World and Canon inktank replacements.

I used calidad compatible ink cartridges, but a sign came up saying "the type of print head is incorrect install correct print head". So I went to more expense and replaced these new ink...


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

sounds like the print head contacts are getting loose or are dirty, try cleaning the contact pads, re-seat the unit and try again, to do this gently rub the contacts with a white eraser works good for this job. if this helps you, please provide some thumbs up. cheers.

REPLACED PRINT CARTRIDGE NOW STATES THE TYPE OF PRINT HEAD IS INCORRECT.


Canon support suggests that perhaps your print head needs to be reseated. This would be too complicated to explain, plus the documentation at Canon support has pictures to help you perform this task.

You must be willing to use the "Search" feature in order to view this solution. Type in the question:

Hi
I think you need to check if the inkjet (print head/ Cartouch) is installed ok on the printer.
& Make sure it is the type supported by your printer.
I hope this was your problem.

CANON MP830 all in one is sayin" the type of printhead is incorrectn Install the correct Printhead."


Hi follow the instructions as above...
ie Remove inks and print head...

But instead...
Whilst Canon print head is out...

Use cotton wool and alcohol and clean electrical contacts on back of print head and where they make contact inside printer.

Then install print head and inks and test.

If it does not work you may need to replace print head.
