A605s (Printhead cannot move). And I have not found any obstructions. The printhead is over to the left and I cannot get it out.


The error could be due to an outdated firmware. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

1. From the printer control panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Replace Printhead, or for touchscreen panels, touch Ink Levels > More Options > Replace Printhead.

2. Open the printer cover. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Press the tab, and lift the latch. Pull up to remove the printhead. Close the printer cover then turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source.

4. Turn the printer back on. It will ask you to "Open Cover to Install the Printhead". Press the Cancel (Red X) button or the Home icon for the touchscreen panels. It should take you back to the "Copy" menu.

5. Proceed with the firmware update. Just go to Lexmark S600 Series Firmware Update.

6. Once the firmware update is successful, firmly re-insert the printhead.



If the error continues to display on the screen, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

How do I remove the print head on a Cannon Pixma iP90V Thank you for any help you can provide.


You turn the machine on. Open the top cover an allow the printhead to slide to the center position. At this point turn off the machine..By hand move the printhead to the right slightly....you can be a little forceful. There is a green tab on the frame or retainer of the printhead that you push to allow it to lift and the entire printhead should come out!....If ink is still in the print head carriage it will come out with the printhead.

Brother MFC-410CN


When you lift the scan assembly you will see 2 covers that run to the back of the machine, you lift those covers and unplug the cables from the circuit board and take this scanner assembly off. After that there are 7 screws to lift the center cover. You will then see the printhead with 4 ink tubes attached. Cleaning usually doesn't help this printhead, only a new printhead, around $100.00

How to remove printer head ? According to the manual, since the printer has 7 orange flashes, the printhead (per manual) needs to be removed and reinstalled.Not sure how to do that.


Just like changing the ink, open the cover so that the carriage comes to the center, remove the inks, and then lift the handle on the side and lift out the printhead. Use either alcohol to wipe the contacts on the back of the printhead and the contacts on the carriage, or an eraser to clean then brush away any crumbs.

How do i remove the print head to replace with a new one


You have to turn on the machine and lift the cover to bring the carriage to the center just like changing ink. You remove the inks and lift the gray handle to release the printhead. The top of the printhead tilts forward and you lift out. The new one goes in bottom first and then tilt back and lower the gray handle to lock in. Install inks and you're done...

How do i replace the printhead


The Print head is sitting in a cradle. So do not confuse the cradle with actual print head. The cradle is the one that slides left and right on the metallic rod. Do NOT try to remove the cradle.

Make sure to use genuine Canon ink cartidges.

1) Unplug the power to the printer. Remove the USB printer cable.
2) Lift open the top cover by depressing the round button on the right side of the printer; exposing the printer ink cartridges.
3)Lift the grey lever on top of the cartridges. This dis-engages the printhead electrical connections. Remove all the 4 ink cartridges from the printhead. From the cradle hold the printhead from the top and lift the printhead by tilting it toward you. Make sure not to touch the electrical contacts in the back printhead.
4) Take a small plastic bowl and fill it with 1/4 inch or less with Rubbing Alcohol(70% Isopropyl Alcohol). Dip the bottom of the printhead in the alcohol. Soak printhead in the alcohol and shake it lightly so the dried ink clogging the printhead can come loose. Us paper towels to soak excess alcohol from the bottom of the printhead. Make sure not to damage the printheads.
5) Pour some alcohol from the top of the each inlet of the ink cartridge seat and again soak up any excess alcohol with paper towel. Let the print head dry up little.
6) Put the printhead back in the cradle and insert back the ink cartridges in their right seat. Lower the grey lever back into its position so the electrical contacts are made on the printhead.
7) Plug the power and USB port.
8) Print a picture or diagram with color in draft mode. You might have to do this couple of times, so that the inks starts flowing from the ink cartridge through the print head. Then print the same in high quality. If the heads are unclogged your printer should work as new.

Just one bit of advice: you may wonder if you've got the position right because the grey lever may not seem to be able to engage - it will, but needs a fairly strong push to click into position again.

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...

  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.

Unsticking the C2424 Printhead


You need to remove the scanner and document feeder.
to do that you disconnect the molex connector from the right side of the printer next to the power cord.
Then remove the 2 screws on the upper part of the back of the machine, one each on the 2 side covers. That is all that holds the covers on. Now, step to the side at about the middle of the machine, lift up and out on the one of the side covers, Now be ready because the front cover will "pop" off also, that front cover holds both side covers on in front.
Now you need to go to the back again, there is a small white cover on the upper back about 10 inches long and 2-3 inches on top and down the back, remove it and the metal cover underneth it.
Last you have to remove the ink holder, where the solid ink stick are placed. There are no bolts holding it in, just a couple of plastic tabs on the sides, You need to release them with a small screw driver and lift it out, There are 2 connectors on that plug in on the side of the machine. Once you get the ink loader ( holder) off you have accessed the print head area. It really is pretty easy to get to. Just sounds like a lot, In actuality, it takes about 10 minutes. Make sure you have either some magnetic Torx drivers or a 5.5 MM nut driver to remove the screwws.

Have a cannon mp730 multipass screen shows wrong cartridge cartridges are ok ?


MPC730
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.--- By pressing Menu-Copy-# 2) Select TEST MODE [set]. 3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE 4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR]. 5) Select 0. [INK COUNT]. 6) Press the [OK] key. 7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.


If the printheads are badly clogged and the printer driver cleaning cycles aren't fixing it, you may try the 
following:
First effort: put a few drops of cleaning solution onto the park pad "sponge". This is that sponge-looking thing 
(actually a hard plastic foam) where the head sits when not printing. Just do whatever it takes on that printer to 
unpark the heads as if you were going to change cartridges, then close it up and let it sit for a day before you 
run a cleaning cycle and nozzle check again.
Extremely Thorough Cleaning: Take the head out, remove the cartridges. If you've saved the orange seals, tape them 
onto the cartridges, if not then wrap black electrical tape around so it covers the ink outlet and the little air 
inlet on top. Only pull it snug across the ink outlet, not tight, and fairly loose on the cartridge body to prevent 
tape creep.
I then just stick the head under a stream of hot tap water. I use a soft plastic eyedropper to squirt the above 
cleaning fluid into the ink inlet meshes on the head and to flush ink off the bottom of the head. Careful not to 
touch the nozzles!
As you squirt cleaning fluid into the screen, a lot will rush back out, that is fine as it is flushing ink and gunk 
back out rather than forcing it through the nozzles, which are far finer than a human hair.
When you see little or no more color in the water or cleaning solution, force some of the straight 
filtered/distilled water into the screens. Rinse the outside of the print head with straight isopropyl alcohol (99% 
is better than 50% for this) and pat dry with a clean cotton towel (-not- paper towels) and again, DO NOT TOUCH THE 
NOZZLES.
Patience is a virtue. I've bought a lot of Canon printers in thrift stores with full cartridges because the heads 
clogged, they bought new cartridges, that didn't fix it so they tossed it at Goodwill. I clean them up and for 
$12.95 I get $45 worth of brand new cartridges and a backup printer. I only had two heads be unsaveable, those 
would print on all nozzles but had sprung internal leaks between two colors, cyan and yellow. The symptom was 
yellow nozzle checks print green, and the ink inside the yellow cartridge slowly turns green.
