I want to relace my cartridge with new one but it cant open the cartridge. the cartridge holder didnt move to the center. what should i do?? please help

Make sure the power to the printer is turned "on" ; when you lift the cover to the printer cartridge housing, the cartridge carrier will move to the center of the housing making it accessible to remove the old cartridges- then insert the new ink cartridges after properly removing all the packing tape from them..

Hello, First of all, let's start with some simple questions. 1 Was the cartridge ever refilled or is it in the original state? 2 How exactly did this occured? I'm asking this because most printers have a limited space inside them for the cartridge to move around when printing. If they don't fit exactly as they should, they will most likely hit something in their movement when printing. If your cartridge was refilled maybe the person who did that didn't attached the cartridge top part properly and now it moved out of position and hits the inner top of the cartridge housing. Please provide me first with these informations so I can better assist you.

Cartridge housing will not certre to change cartridge

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

What ink cartridges does a canon mp520 take? currently using 5 PGBK black, have been told I can use 8 black, but don't know how to install it

Your printer uses 4 cartridges: PGI-5 Black and CLI-8 (Cyan/Magenta/Yellow). Unless you have a slot for a fifth cartridge, CLI-8BK cannot be used in your printer.

As for installing new cartridges:
  1. Turn your printer on.Open the printer's lid. The printer will automatically move the ink cartridges to the center of the opening.
  2. Unplug the printer's power supply cord from the electrical outlet to avoid the risk of an electrical shock.
  3. Remove the printer cartridges by first pressing down on the top of each cartridge housing. Pressing down on the cartridge housings will cause the top of each housing to automatically lift up, thereby exposing the cartridges. Lift the cartridges out of each cartridge housing to remove them.
  4. Install the replacement ink cartridges by first removing the orange safety tape located on either the top or the bottom of each cartridge, depending on the particular type of cartridge. The safety tape ensures that the cartridges do not leak ink before being installed. To remove the tape, simply pull the orange tab on the end of each piece of tape away from each cartridge. Position each cartridge into its cartridge housing so that the printed words on top of the each cartridge faces towards the front of the printer, then close the tops of the cartridge housings.
  5. Plug the printer's power cord into an electrical outlet, then close the access panel by pressing down on the panel.
  6. Turn the printer on and allow the printer a few minutes to recognize the new cartridges, then insert at least three pieces of paper into the paper tray, which the printer will require to align the cartridges.
  7. Align the new cartridges by selecting either the "Clean and Align" or the "Cartridge Alignment" option, depending on the particular printer model. Some Canon models require the user to align the cartridges through the printer's software program. Select the "Print Properties" option in the printer's program, then select the "Clean and Align" option. The printer will produce several printed pages to confirm that the cartridges have been aligned. Other Canon models allow the user to align the cartridges directly from the printer. These printers features a display screen on the printer. Press the "Menu" button on the display, then use the arrow keys to select "Settings." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Maintenance." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Manual Head Align." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Yes." Press the "OK" button one final time, then allow the printer to produce the printed pages confirming that the cartridges have been aligned.

Instaling ink cartridge

Open the printer below the scanner bed. Lift up immediately above the keyboard area. This opening is immediately below the opening for the scanner bed. If you have the printer on, the cartridges will move to the center. There is a legend in front that shows you which is black and which is color after you open the printer. To take out a cartridge, push the aqua latch immediately in front of a cartridge. A top cover to the cartridge on springs pops up. You can gently pull a cartridge out of its housing. If you are replacing a cartridge, remove any orange pieces from the new cartridge as needed, remove any tape covering the copper sensors, then put the new cartridge where the old one was and push down on the cartridge spring-loaded housing cover. Repeat for the other cartridge as needed. When finished and the housing covers are closed, close the printer and the printer will move the cartridges where they need to be. Use the printer's software to align cartridges as needed. You should be good to go!

Problem Powering On

Open the cover and look for a strip of plastic that the cartridges move along. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DISCONNECT THIS PIECE. If you can access it use a damp cloth to wipe any ink/dirt from this - DO NOT use chemicals as there are markings on this strip that are used for positioning. The slamming is caused because the printer cannot read the cartridge position.

Cartridge Jam

The only thing you can do with this is make sure that there are no foreign objects that could be blocking the movement of the cartridge head. And when you insert the cartridge back, make sure you hear a clicking sound on both the cartridge and the cartridge cover when you insert it. Power down then power back up... make sure all covers are closed when you power back up. If it gives the same message, the printers sensors may be bad and it will require service or replacement. So, check with your manufacturer for warranty options.
