The printhead it is attached at each cartridge, so, there are two options: a) cartridge damageds or b) bad read cartridge contacts.
Do this, take out the cartridges, check if the contacts are clean and dry, then be sure to fix well again in the printer, if an error message appears, push the cancel button by 6 seconds, this deactivate the ink level sensor.If the error stay, 6 seconds 1 more time, if not works, I think that one or both cartridges are damaged, try with a new pair.

It seems that the cartridge is not recognized by the printer. There are two possibilities: the cartridge is faulty or the carriage unit is faulty. Carriage unit is cartridge housing where you used to install the cartridge inside printer.
Please try this first,clean contact area of the cartridge and carriage unit with dry clothe. Sometimes,bad contact cause such problem.

I have installed a new pg 30 print cartrige in my Canon MP 470 printer and I get a U051 Error print Head is not installed error. How do I reset printer to fix this error?


Hi there !

The ink cartridge is not properly fitted or installed or does not detect the ink catridge, remove again and fitted it correctly.
.
Also, clean with alcohol the gold chips of the ink cartridge and maybe there is sticky residue when you remove the sticker. Turnoff your printer and plug it on again to refresh the memory.

I hope it helps you.
