You may have a defective print head.
When you lift up the lid does the head move to the center?
If so do the ink cartridges light up?
If it moves to the center and no lights you need a new head.

Testimonial: "Thanks Michael. The cartridges do light up and move to the centre but the error messages continue despite my every intervention."

SOURCE: CANON PIXMA MP 210

The MP210 does not support Win98, and Win2000 driver doesn't work with Win98... so it's impossible to use this printer with an OS older than Win2000.

SOURCE: canon pixma ip4600 black ink problem

The PGI-220 is the larger ink tank and is filled with standard black ink. The PGI-221 black cartridge is the photo black. There is no way to force the printer to use the photo black cartridge (skinny one) to print documents. The photo black cartridge is only used if you print a photo. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling shop and I can't refill these cartridges yet. There is no way to reset the ink level chip without a resetter and any replacement chips you find on the internet are technically violating patent law.

Mty printer is a PIXMA MP 470 it has an error code saying 'print head is not installed, install print head' It wont do anything or let me even go onto the menu??????


There are 2 ink cartridges that came with the printer (PG-40 and CL-31). These are the consumables that are also print head. You must install these in your printer.

Follow the setup guides/manuals that came with your printer. If you can't find them, they're downloadable from Canon's website.

you'll have to clean the printer head. It's possible that your driver can do it automatically. It happens after a long time whitout using the printer. The ink can become dry and solid.
