How to change ink cartiridges

  • 1

    Turn on the Canon iP2000 if the device is not on. Allow it to power up for about 30 seconds.

  • 2

    Gently lift the cover of the unit with your hands. Lift only the top cover of the printer.

  • 3

    Wait until the print head moves to the center of the unit. It automatically moves to this position, allowing you access to all the cartridges. Do not try to move the print head manually, or remove a cartridge before this part stops and the light turns green.

  • 4

    Remove the section of orange film on the side of the new ink cartridge. Twist off the small plastic guard on the bottom of the ink cartridge.

  • 5

    Remove the old ink cartridge from the ink cartridge holder with your fingers. Press the tab on the cartridge forward and then pull it up and out of the holder. Slide the new cartridge into its place. Push down on the top of the cartridge to snap it into the unit. Close the cover when finished.

How do i change my ink cartridges in my kexmark x3650

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
In a few seconds, the print-head will slide to a position from where you can "unlock" and then remove an ink-cartridge.

Changing cartridges

1) With the power on, open the front cover. The print head should move to the center.
2) Prepare the new cartridge for installation by removing the tape(s). Do not touch the area of the ink cartridge that was protected by the tapes.

Put in cartridge error

Hi celcono,

Many times this happens because the Print Head needs reseated.

Here are the instructions from Canon on reseating the print head.

Reseat the Print head Reseating the print head is seldomly required to do.
  1. Make sure the machine is powered on.

  2. Lift the Scan Unit until it locks into place (1). The Print Head Holder moves to the center.

  3. Open the Paper Output Tray (2).


  4. Open the Inner Cover (2). The print head holder (3) should be centered.


  5. Lift up the lock lever and take out the print head. The print head can be removed with the ink tanks installed.


  6. Reinsert the print head back in position and press down the lock lever.


  7. Close the Inner Cover (1) and the Scan Unit (2).


    CAUTION: Press the center of the Inner Cover until the cover locks into place.

  8. After the Scan Unit is return to its original position, the LCD displays a message asking if you replaced an ink tank.


  9. Press [+] and select [NO] to exit.

Canon Pixma iP2000

try cleaning the print head as follows, otherwise a new print head.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

Confirm that the ink tanks are installed properly When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head.
  1. Check that the printer is powered on and open the front cover.

  2. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Check if the ink tanks are installed properly.


    Ink tanks installed correctly


    Ink tanks installed incorrectly

  4. When installing the ink tanks, push the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

    Note: If the ink tanks are not installed properly, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be ejected.


  5. Close the front cover.
