Wrong cartridge means that the printhead is bad. Don't take it apart yet, you need a printhead.

Take the printhead out and clean it with alcohol, just make sure you dont get the electronic board wet. put it back in and should work, did this to mine and works fine now, the head just gets plugged

My canon mp 730 has an alarm lit and says wrong cartridge. I tried removing print head and cleaning with alcohol...no luck...put in a different cartridge...no luck. What else can I do


On Canon that error means the printhead is bad, nothing to do with the inks. The translation from Japanese to English made the error confusing. You need to buy a new printhead, the part number is on the side of the printhead and starts with QY6-

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Canon mp-730 print head does not move


it seems you open or unscrew the printer.
this may happen if the mother board has no nigative pole.
you have to reset the mother borad.
cannot do that from the available options
the reseting procedure is to take the motherboard out and you have to shortcut the battary for 10 seconds.
re install it , and try it
