SOURCE: How to remove printhead from canon i860

The gray-colored arm (it's not that small) is to the right of the cyan cartridge. It is the arm or extension of the gray-colored hinged cover. Remove all ink cartridges, lift the gray-colored arm up, and pull the print head out. Clean the print head with a cotton ball soaked with water or rubbing alcohol. Dry and re-install the print head.

SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printer head error

Hello,

Print heads for nearly all printers are rated at 2 years. You may also need to clean the tube from the resevoir at the ink supply to the cartridge and clean the working resevoir on the cartridge as well. If you are up to this challenge there is a how-to at your manufacturer's web site or you can have a tech do it. Most people, when they realize how inky you will be getting choose to have a tech do this.

It is best to use 100% denatured alcohol, from your hardware store, to clean these parts and tubing. But, you must take precautions.

DO NOT USE DENATURED ALCOHOL UNLESS YOU READ AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BACK OF THE CAN.

I'm not kidding about the precautions. I do all this stuff outside when there is a breeze in the air and then I stay up wind of my work.

If you have any questions whatsoever just feel free to comment back to me.

Regards,
Worldvet

SOURCE: Figuring how to install new print head in my Canon iP90 printer

The important point is moving the head to the left, or sliding it left or right, so you can actually SEE the LEVER. It is hidden otherwise and what appears to be the obvious lever on the top is the wrong lever. If you have pressed the correct lever the unit removes very easily. If it is hard and you cannot make progress chances are you have not found the correct LEVER!

you wont like what you find. lol .
apparently if you call cannon support they going to tell you its a U052 is a temperature sensor error. and not the print head error. someone musta did some bad programming. lol
try returning the cartridge if its not a canon specific cartridge - and get replacement - try that - but i doubt its going to work - i would call about a new one (print head that is - they will also apparently send you a new print head.) as i have read up on
hope this helped x404x

My Canon Printer MG 6250 wont turn on can you please help.


Disconnect the printer from your power source. Open the lid as if to change an ink cartridge. See if the print head cartridge moves freely. If it does not move, you will need to partially disassemble the printer to remove the print head. If the print head moves, remove the cartridges. Lift the locking lever and remove the print head. Then lower the locking lever again. close the printer. Connect it to the power source and see if it will now turns on. If it does,it will give an error message (as there is no print head installed). If it does not power up up without the print head, it is not worth repairing. If it powers up, there is a possibility that a new print head will fix things. But that is just a chance as what damaged the print head may have damaged the logic board. It is simply a gamble. These failures can occur without warning and without apparent reason. Sometimes, it is not a bad idea to just buy another printer. It is up to you whether to gamble or not.

Blurry colorwashed photos from canon pixma pro9000. What can I do to fix this?


Hi there, I located this video about removing the print head and cleaning it. I've had to clean my print head from time to time, so take a look at this video and see if it can give some help. Your printer might not look exactly the same, but you should be able to remove the print head. If cleaning the print head doesn't clean up the color issue, try contacting Cannon support: Canon Contact Us. I wish you best of luck!

Canon MP600 printer, error msg. U052 Cleaning the printer head doesn't help. Replacing with new (full) cartridges doesn't help. The only one thing, that helps now, is to disconnect the printer from power...


Description

Reseat the Print Head to resolve the U051 / U052 error.

Solution

Errors displayed on the printer's LCD screen:

  • U051 Print head is not installed. Install the print head.
  • U052 The type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head.
Reseat the Print Head:
  1. Make sure that the power is turned on, and open the Paper Output Tray gently
  2. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover), then hold it open with the Scanning Unit Support (A). (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
  3. Remove all the Ink Tanks in the following manner.
    1. Push the tab (B) and lift the ink tank to remove.
    2. Do not touch the Print Head Lock Lever (C) while removing the ink tanks.
  4. Once the ink tanks have been removed, raise the print head lock lever.
  5. Tilt the print head slightly towards the front of the machine and lift out gently.




    Caution: Do not touch the print head nozzles <1> , electrical contacts <2>, or ink supply ports <3>. Doing so may cause printing problems.



    *Before proceeding to next step, check the carriage area for packing material, torn paper, etc. and remove if found
  6. Tilt the Print Head and set it in place. Lower the Print Head Lock Lever (E) completely.
  7. Insert ink tanks into the print head.
    1. Insert the front end of ink tank into the Print Head at a slant. Make sure that the position of the ink tank matches the label.
    2. Press the mark (Push) on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
      Make sure that the ink lamp lights up red.
  8. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover) slightly to set the Scanning Unit Support back to its original position, and gently close the Scanning Unit (Cover).

    Caution: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.

    Note: When the next printing begins, the print head cleaning will begin automatically.
If you have reseated the ink tanks and print head and the error still appears, our industry-leading support team is available to help you Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 10PM EST. You can contact our technical support experts by phone or email:

I960 resume light flashes yellow 5 times 1 green


Five yellow flashes indicate that the printer doesn't recognize the print head, or thinks that the wrong print head is installed. You can try to remedy this by opening the cover, removing the ink tanks, then removing the print head (lift the locking lever). Check that the copper contacts on the back of the print head are clean, then reinsert the print head, lock it in, and reinstall the ink tanks. If you still have the error indication, the print head may be bad and need replacing. Contact Canon for your options on this.

When printing pictures, there are faint white vertical lines on


Cleaning usually doesn't help that printhead much. A new one QY6-0049-000 is around $40.00. You remove by lifting the gray handle on the left after removing all the inks.
