    this has nothing to do with the driver or ink cartridges as it involves inserting the print head....

    The carriage and print head seem difficult to align

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Error 5100 displayed. what is problem? how do I fix it?


According to the Canon website there are three possible reasons for this error:

Issue: ERROR LCD: Error Code 5100

1. Press ON switch to reset the multifunction device 2. Remove packing material MP980 (I think this is referring to the packing materinal when you first open the printer) 3. The MP980 may require repair

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

It doesn't print in black but prints in color


Hi, To ensure this is only an issue with the black, I recommend printing off a nozzle check. This will show you if this problem is effecting any of the other colours.
To print a nozzle please refer to chapter 12 page 115 of the manual,
If colours are missing I recommend cleaning the print head. You have two options for cleaning the print head a normal clean and a deep clean, start by doing a normal clean if required try doing a deep clean.

I think i inserted the print head wrong in my canon pixma mp980 printer, how do i remove it?


I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it.

Seems that you can position the print head in the device a couple of ways and the way I did it was wrong. When looking at the print head I could see a white piece of plastic at the bottom of the print head. This piece of plastic was what was jammed and preventing the print head from being removed. I used a small screw driver blade to free it by inserting the screw driver on the right side of the white piece of plastic and twisting it. The head popped out and then I was able to re-insert it.

Poor design by Canon - should not be able to get the head stuck like that...
