I'm pretty sure I've already spoken with you about this, but this is a variant of your earlier question. Take the cartridge out of the printhead and reinstall it. It should be a little bit loose naturally, but not all that loose. What make / model printer are we talking about here.

    It definitely should not be sitting in there very loose, it sounds like the printhead may actually have to be replaced, without seeing it it's hard to say if it can be manually adjusted, but most of the times it can't. You will want to give Kodak a call at 1-800-235-6325, let me know what they tell you regarding this so I know for future reference.

    Thanks

The Error message usually relates to Printer Failure. However you can try few steps to fix it. ( Hopefully )

Turn off the Printer.

1. Open the Carriage access door.
2. Remove the Cartridges and Printhead ( Printhead is the part on which you install the cartridges )
3. Lift the latch to remove the Printhead.
4. Move the carriage from left to right 6 times and it should move freely
5. Clean the contacts on the printhead with lint free cloth. ( Golden dots at back of Printhead )
6. Turn on the printer and it should say " Printhead missing or not installed/Damaged "
7. Install the Printhead and Cartridges and close the latch and close the Carriage door
8. the printer should go through alignment process

If this step does not fix, You may try calling HP customer support to check for better options/solutions

Hp designjet 1050c check printhead path (1) but the carriage barely moves?


Either the belt pulley is broken, or installed incorrectly, or the belt was installed backwards.

My canon MP480 keeps poping up a 5100 error


That error is a Carriage error, which means that the printer carriage (the bit that holds the cartridges) is unable to move or similar.

Make sure you've installed the cartridges correctly and that the grey lever that holds down the printhead is in the down and locked position.

You may find that you've installed the printhead incorrectly so worth pulling out the cartridges, removing the printhead and then reseating it so the lever goes down to a horizontal position. Then reinsert the cartridges.

Kodak printer states printhead loose or missing, this error message came on when I replaced the introductory color cartridge, which occured 1 week after taking out of box.


To resolve this error:
  1. Open the printer access door.
    Disconnect the power cord
  2. Remove the color and black ink cartridges.
  3. Remove, then reinstall the printhead.
    • Unlatch the printhead:

      press the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.

    • Lift the printhead out of the carriage.
    • Place the printhead in the carriage.
    • Press firmly against the target label on the printhead until it clicks into place.
  4. Install the color and black ink cartridges.
  5. Close the printer access door.
  6. Connect the power cord.
  7. Then follow the instructions on the LCD screen

I get the message that printhead is missing, loose, or installed incorrectly. I re-installed both of them and clicked them like instructed and I still get the same message, even when I unplug it and plug...


The cartriges are not the printhead. Take them out, push the button on the top left and reinstall, pushing on the thumb picture. then install cartriges. if this doesnt work call 1.800.421.6699.

IDS failure, call HP message comes up


Hope this helps you. This error is caused by either a correct or incorrect detection of air in the manifold. The steps below will clear the error condition, which should solve the problem if it is caused by an incorrect detection of air. If there really is air in the manifold, however, this procedure will not solve the problem and the printer will have to be serviced. Step 1 - Remove all printheads CAUTION: Do not touch the printhead tower. Do not remove the printhead handle. Keep printheads out of the reach of children. Figure 1: HP 14 printhead c00042423.jpg 1 - Handle 2 - Tower
  1. Make sure the unit is plugged in and the power is turned on.
  2. Open the print carriage access door by lifting the handle until the door locks in place. The print carriage moves to the center.
  3. Wait two or three seconds, then unplug the power cord.
  4. Open the printhead latch. See the illustration below. Figure 2: Open the printhead latch c00042424.jpg
  5. Remove each problem printhead by lifting the printhead handle and pulling up. See the illustration below. Figure 3: Remove the printhead c00042425.jpg
Step 2 - Reset the internal error state NOTE: This step must be performed before the printheads are re-installed.
  1. Close the printhead chute.
  2. Close the access door.
  3. Plug the power cord back in.
  4. Turn on the power. The front panel should read No Printhead. Will damage Product. Insert [color name] [icon] printhead now . NOTE: The carriage may make a grinding noise when you turn the power on. This noise is normal.
  5. Open the print carriage access door by lifting the handle until the door locks in place. The print carriage moves to the center.
  6. Wait two or three seconds, then unplug the power cord.
  7. Open the printhead latch.
Before re-inserting the printheads, make sure all the electrical contacts have had at least five minutes to dry. Step 3 - Insert the printheads
  1. Place each printhead in its slot in the printhead carriage. The colored shape on the top of the printhead should match the colored shape on the proper slot on the printhead carriage.
  2. Press down firmly and evenly on both the front and back of the printhead, as shown in the illustration below. Proper seating is essential to making good electrical contact.
Figure 4: Seat the printhead c00042431.jpg Step 4 - Close and check the printer
  1. Close the printhead carriage latch and make sure the loops catch the hooks. See the illustration below. Figure 5: Loops catch hooks c00042432.jpg
  2. Snap the latch into place.
  3. Plug in the power cord.
  4. Close the print carriage access door.
  5. Turn on the power.
  6. If the error clears, a message to align the printheads may appear on the HP Officejet D and HP Officejet 7100. Press Enter to align. If the error persists contact HP. Printhead replacement will not resolve this problem - the printer will have to be serviced.

Error message: Printhead missing, not installed correctly or has come loose


In regards to the error message with the printhead missing or come loose......I had that issue just shortly after I installed my printer. I was going crazy trying to fix it taking it out and reinstalling which was a pain, removing the cartridges and then the printhead to no avail. Finally I got smart and disconnected the power cord from the printer itself, not directly from the outlet. Once I did that and turned the printer back on the error was gone. It might have been a fluke, but it worked for me, so you might want to try it.
