Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
Raise the lock lever (at the top of the print head .. lift out the print head .. remove the covers from the new head and place where the old one came out .. it will be at a slight tilt .. then close the lock lever (pull down until it latches) .. replace the ink carts in the new head as soon as possible before they dry out .. do a print head cleaning .. then do a nozzle check ..
usually the old print head just has clogged nozzles .. there is a utility under "devies and printers" .. "ip4200" .. "adjust print options".. that will allow you to clean and test the heads ..
the new print head is about $58 .. so its expensive to do unless you are sure yours is bad .. the print heads usually stay healthy if you do the following
1. print something .. color and black at least every week or so ..
2. dont let ink run out completely
3. never unplug the printer without first turning it off .. wait until the heads are parked ..
4. in case of a power failure while the printer is being used .. then power it back up as soon as possible to park the heads (that seals them so they dont dry out)
a complete user manual is available from canon if you need one ..
