Question about Canon S520 InkJet Photo Printer
Hello, I have replaced my cartridges and have the following error-message "Cartridge not Installed!"
I have cleaned the printerhead. When I swich my prnter on, it stops after 10 secs with only the GREEN light on (so no blinking orange light).
Buy a new printer! Honestly. What likley happened
it that the brown ribbon connector on the back of the frame that
holds all the ink wells has become ripped off or torn from
the green circuit board. This means that there electrical connection is gone, and the printer can't sense the frame
is in place.
This likely happened when you were cleaning it!
It's impossible to repair yourself, you need a new
black frame. And....you can't buy one separately.
You practically need to buy a whole new printer.

1. First of all Confirm that the printer is powered on.
2. Open the card slot cover and then the front cover. The cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.
3. Remove the cartridges.
Note: Handle the cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.
4. Insert the cartridge into the cartridge holder.
Note: Push up the cartridge until it clicks into place.
6. Close the front cover. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Now check the printer again. If you still get this error message then it means the Cartridge you installed is not exactly proper, or if you think that u got this cartridge from the reliable source and it is proper and exactly fine cartridge then the problem is in the Print Head. You need to check it again.
I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.
Don't hesitate to let me know if you have some confusion.
