    This is a " waste ink pad full error" that means that the printer needs maintenance service. Unfortunately you need a special key combination to access the on-screen service menu and reset the page counter, I haven´t found that combination yet.

1. Underneath the printer, look for the triangular arrow on the AC Adapter, which points to a detent. Fully depress the detent, remove the AC Adapter and unplug it. Align the cable so that it will pass through the hole in the case when you remove the printer assembly.
2. Open the front cover to the vertical position and tug it at the hinge points to remove it.
3. The black, card-slot cover has two holes marked by triangles. Remove the two Phillips head screws, being careful not to lose them in the printer mechanism. Coax up card slot cover with a dull knife or similar tool and remove it.
4. On the top left of the printer, notice the triangle point at a slot. Insert a screwdriver or similar tool into the slot and depress the detent. Ease the little cover over the USB cable connector towards the rear of the printer and remove it.
5. Remove the “Operation Panel and Window Display” (OPWD). Lift the window display to the horizontal position and remove the two Phillips head screws. Rotate the OPWD forward and out the two hinges at the bottom. Lower the tiny snap that holds the OPWD strap cable and remove the OPWD.
6. Note the slot marked with a triangle between the two OPWD hinge slots. This is one of the six slots, all marked with a triangle, which access the detents that hold the upper casing. Locate the other five. One is on the left-side front of the printer in the same relative position as the one hidden under the OPWD. The other four are in the rear of the printer. Depress these detents in turn, working around the printer, and coax up the upper casing. This requires fortitude, patience and one or more dull, thin instruments.
7. On the right side of the printer, remove the Phillips head screw that fastens the yellow wire to the chassis of the printer.
8. Disconnect the connector on the Digital Camera Connector (DCC) circuit board and ease the cable out of the printer casing as far as you can. (I feared damaging the connector and removed the circuit board and DCC cover instead.) This cable is hooked at the right hand rear corner of the printer casing.
9. Looking down on the printer mechanism, locate the two Philips head screws near the rear. These fasten the printer to the base. Remove them carefully.
10. Placing a hand under the paper feed barrel, lift the printer assembly up and rest it on the case while you fight the DCC cable off the hook at the right rear corner. Once you free it, remove the printer assembly and congratulate yourself.
11. Wearing disposable gloves, remove the five ink absorbent pads and rinse them under the facet in the laundry sink. Cold water is fine. Press the pads with your fingers until the water runs clear. Do not wring or otherwise torment the pads, as you want them to retain their shape. Press the pads between old newspapers to squeeze out most of the moisture. Expect to be surprised at the amount of liquid these felt pads can hold. I dried mine in the sun. Use a hair dryer, clothes dryer, microwave or oven at your own risk.
12. Reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly.
12.1. Insert the small absorbent pads first. The right side pad with the green facing goes on top. (I think.)
12.2. Caution: Before replacing the upper casing, note the small electrical gismo on the left side of the printer assembly. It has a slot that fits into the plastic wheel. When properly positioned, the gismo snaps into place. Make sure the gismo is correctly seated before replacing the upper casing.

No printer head

How do you install the canon i900d print head. Need to install print head.

Color not printing correctly on canon i900d

Take the cartridges and print head out. Pour about a centimeter of boiling water into a saucer or shallow bowl and set the print head in it for about 30 seconds. Place it on a folded up paper kitchen towel for a minute to dry and replace print head and cartridges in printer. Run two normal cleaning cycles and a nozzle check. If the test print is still poor or has not improved at all, the print head is probably dying and it is time to find a new machine. If the print has improved but not perfect, just repeat the process a couple of times.

Maybe you mistyped? Is it 'head or 'header'. I believe it is head you want to say. In that case your printer requires a new print-head to be installed.
Your printer has separate ink tanks and heads for printing. The head has a limited life although it works for along time.
The printer should indicated which color head needs to be installed. Try cleaning the head with the printer software first.
You can purchase the head of that color (or colors if more than one) and follow the install procedure in the printer manual.
If you also want head installation instructions, please take some time to post it as a separate question. I will try to give complete instructions.

Printer made machine gun noise. will not print.

The print head is stuck - something has jammed it and the noise you are hearing is the carriage for the print head. Open the top and try moving the head by head sideways to see what has jammed it.
