It just means that the printhead is defective, All of the Canon machines say that when the printhead goes out.

CANON MP830 all in one is sayin" the type of printhead is incorrectn Install the correct Printhead."


Hi follow the instructions as above...
ie Remove inks and print head...

But instead...
Whilst Canon print head is out...

Use cotton wool and alcohol and clean electrical contacts on back of print head and where they make contact inside printer.

Then install print head and inks and test.

If it does not work you may need to replace print head.

My Canon PIXMA MP830 all-in-one is saying "the type of printhead is incorrect, install the correct printhead."


The cartrige is what holds the ink, the printhead is the device that puts the ink onto the paper.

So if your out of ink, then you need a new cartridge, if you have a new cartridge and you are having issues printing good quality, then you may need a new printhead.

you can get the ink here: http://printerinkcartridgesearch.printcountry.com/canon-pixma-mp830-ink-cartridges.htm

printhead is about 49.95

Error: The type of Printhead is incorrect, Install the correct printhead.


Ok i know this is kinda old, but i found a solution.

First to those people to state I found a solution from hp, cannon etc etc and not give out the direct link, or instructions, then whats the point fing posting????

This error happens when you install an oem cartridge onto your system. Or havent used it in a while, so the machine is somehow misfigured.

This solution is for canon mp800, simply switch off printer. HOLD stop/reset and press and HOLD on/off button. release stop/reset. Now press stop.reset twice. then release on/off button, press stop/reset 4 times, wait 20 seconds, press on/off button twice.

switch machine back on and the printer should find the cartridges.

This method maybe the same for your mp*** if not google RESET CANON PRINTER MP*** and you'll find the correct buttons to press.

here's a printer on reseting a bunch of canon printers http://tricks-collections.com/reset-printer-canon-mp140-mp160-mp180-mp210-mp220-mp460-mp470-mp500-mp510-mp530-mp600-mp610-mp800-mp820-mp810-mp830-mp960-mp970/

good luck.. and FU canon for adding you scamming chips into cartridges.
