Re: led Alarm turn on message: change the Cartridge
I'm not sure which spring you mean. From what you are saying, it could be one of the springs that keeps the drum cover closed on the cartridge itself. In this case it's probably that you are using a cheap re-filled cartridge that hasn't been assembled correctly. The cover is designed with a piece that actuates the sensor which tells the machine that a cartridge is present. My suspicions are that this sensor has become misaligned and needs to be replaced. Keep looking and you will find it. Any drawings Canon provide won't show clearly enough to work with.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You can diagnose most problems by checking the control panel LED's for ink out, paper-out or copier problem. If a problem occurs while you're printing, you'll see an error message in the progress window on your computer. It may also be helpful to try running a printer nozzle check.
See the following message problems and solutions:

What you see moving is the print carriage. The carriage moves the cartridge, adjacent to the printhead, back and forth.
Although the carriage is moving, the ink cartridge can not dispense ink because an obstruction is
blocking the path of the ink.
Remove the ink cartridges, inspect the cartridges as well as the cartridge holders for any foreign debris and reinstall.
If the alarm message continues, I suggest changing the ink cartridges.
remove the cartridge and see if has some band or some sticker on which should get off (see on the box of the cartridge it must write if something like that should be removed) , or just remove the cartridge and putt it carefully and it might be not set good. Please rate the post if is it helpful for i to know do i should post some more information
Remove all the paper from the recording paper tray and then turn off (count to 10 ) and on the machine. Then reload ALL the recording paper together. Also, before doing this open the printer cover and remove the cartridge to make sure there is no pieces of paper stuck inside the machine - then carry out the above procedure.
You've most likely got a dirty corona wire and/or drum. The wire should be cleaned each time you change the toner as well as if/when the print quality starts to degrage. Remove the toner cartridge, give the corona wire several swipes with the tab and make sure the tab is put back securely in place. If cleaning the wire doesn't fix your problem, go ahead and clean the drum. Either one of these or both should solve your issue. Only other thing that could cause your error would be the toner cartridge is not securely in place. (shouild click in securely). Best of luck.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by
holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the
paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling
out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do
this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any
obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or
ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the
printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.
a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume
button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the
printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
