There's a problem with the printhead


Try this approach to fix the printhead problem:1. Open the printer cover > remove the ink tanks > open the printhead latch > remove the printhead > close the printhead latch.2. Visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro700 Series Firmware Update.3. After the update is successful, open the printer cover > open the printhead latch > re-install the printhead > close the printer cover > if no error appears, continue with normal installation steps for cartridges. If error still appears, try to remove and re-insert the printhead firmly.
4. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.
Should the error persist, it could be that the printhead itself is faulty. If that's the case, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.

Well, I don't think FixYa sent you the new replacement, but it was supposed to be sent by Kodak I guess. Anyway, here's the instructions on how to remove/install or in other words, how to replace the printhead.
  1. Verify that the printer is turned on and there are no error conditions.
  2. Open the printer access door and allow the printhead carriage to move to the center position.
  3. Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
  4. Disconnect the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage, then remove the printhead.nonontech_386.jpg
  5. Insert the printhead into the carriage.
  6. Place your thumb over the target label and push in firmly with your right thumb until you hear a loud snap.
  7. Check that the latch captures the printhead.nonontech_387.jpg
  8. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead.
  9. Press down on the color ink cartridge until you hear it click into position.
  10. Repeat Steps 8-9 for the black ink cartridge.
  11. Close the printhead access door.
*Follow upto step 5 to remove the printhead, I just included the remaining steps for your information.

Unable to align cartridges on Canon Pixma MP600 all-in-one printer. When trying to print many black streaks obscure printed area.


This sounds like a printhead problem.
The first thing I would try is to clean the printhead. Remove the cartridges and store them (stretch a piece of plastic electrical tape over the ink cartridge hole to keep the ink from drying out).
Remove the printhead and set it in warm distilled water and let the printhead sit overnight.
Remove the printhead from the water and blot the water with a clean lint free dry cloth (do not rub the printhead and contacts, or damage could occur. Set the printhead aside to air dry.
Once the printhead is dry, reinsert the printhead, remove the tape from the ink cartridges, reinsert the ink cartridges. Test print. This should clear the problem.
We can try a more aggressive cleaning solution of the distilled water doesn't clear the problem.
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

Printhead problem (black/yellow) on HP L7780


When you removed the paper it's possible your damaged it and that's why the message is not going away. Did you try to put the cartridge back in to make sure it had not come out of position and just remove the power cord for a minute then plugging it back it.

Here are the steps to make sure you properly change the cartridges and the heads...

Install the ink cartridges and printheads Step one: Install the ink cartridges All four ink cartridges must be correctly installed for the HP All-in-One to work. Follow the steps below to Install cartridges:
  1. Open the ink cartridge cover.
  2. Remove each ink cartridge from its package.
  3. Align each ink cartridge with its color-coded slot and then insert the ink cartridge into the slot. To ensure proper contact, press down firmly on the cartridges until they snap into place.
  4. Close the ink cartridge cover.

Need instructions for putting in a new printhead


Hello ahieser,

To remove the old printhead, you need to remove the ink cartridges first. And then remove the printhead by pushing the button at the top of the printhead while disengaging it from the carrier.
