We keep getting an error message "the type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head." since this is the print head that came with the printer obviously this is incorrect.We have tried removing the print head and cartridges and re-installing, running the cleaning on the printer but nothing works. should we replace the print head?

SOURCE: I am getting the error

Hi,

This is a very common problem with this model. I encounter exact same problem. What I did was took out the print head and clean the print head with Q tips with alcohol. To locate and remove print head, follow the instruction at Canon's PIXMA MP830 website and choose the tab "Support & Service" type "rseating the Print Head"

You will be seeing :-

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804#SupportDetailAct

Basically, printer head is inner carton where ink cartridge sit.
Above link shows precisely how to remove the ink cartridge.

Above link's instruction says, Caution: do not touch print head nozzles

But, I just went ahead and clean the print head nozzles with rubbing alcohol soaked Q tips.
After completely cleaned and dried, I reinstalled print head, reinstalled ink cartridges,
closed all the cover. It went back working perfectly.


Sometimes a bad positioned printhead may cause this error.

If no luck, unfortunately this is a PCI bus error and is a Service Error Code. Typically this is an internal error on one of the ASIC chips on the logic board and can only be repaired by replacing the logic board at a Canon Service Center.

Note - On most occasions, replacement is a better option than repair.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: cannon MP510 printer has Error, - The type of print head

I solved this on mine by removing and reinstalling the print head.
1. Remove and set aside the ink cartidges (don't make a mess)
2. lift the gray print head lock lever that is to the left of where the ink cartridges go.
3. Lift out the print head out without touching the ink ports inside, the contacts on the back, or the print nozzles on the bottom. The print head is the grey thing with circular ink ports that seat the ink cartridges. there are good pictures in the PDF of the Easy Setup Instructions available on the Canon Printer website. Look under the printer, then support, then downloads: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900002776/mp510_esi_us_v2.pdf .
4. Put the print head back in, lock the lever, reinstall the cartridges in the roper positions. And voila!
If this doesn't work you may actually need a new print head.

I received a suggestion from one of your techs to clean the gold contacts with distilled water using a cotton swab. It worked. Thank you.

sounds like the print head contacts are getting loose or are dirty, try cleaning the contact pads, re-seat the unit and try again, to do this gently rub the contacts with a white eraser works good for this job. if this helps you, please provide some thumbs up. cheers.
