Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer
First remove the flip up lid and the paper support tray then remove two small phillips screws one infront of the black ink cartridge the other on the far right. Then use two regular screwdrivers to pry off the cover start at the backside underneath you will see two tab slots walk the screwdrivers about 1" apart until the top is free (you will think that it is going to crack but the plastic is flexable and strong)
There are two metal tabs on both sides they are held in place by the tension from the plastic strip. Check strip ends make sure they are not broken and the strip is not frayed slide back in place adjust tension by bending tabs out slightly reassemble and print a test sheet. I had to run the test 2-3 times to reset the printer. If this does not work you need a new printer.
