I would check to make sure that the contacts on the cartridgew sensors are not fouled with dried ink. A q-tip with rubbing alcohol should help to remove the dried ink if that is in fact the problem.

Canon pixma mp272 printer. replaced black cartridge for the first time and now it wont print. getting error p08 on the printer and error 5200 on my laptop screen

Hello Hellen,
the error P08 is error for abnormal temperature in print head. Aa possible cause the ink cartridge is faulty and needs to be replaced.The same error description is for 5200 on your PC.

I recommend that you try to replace ink cartrigde under warranty in store where you bought it. If after that you still have error, take the printer to the service center because they logic board ( pcb ) is faulty.

Hope that helps!

MP530 all in one printer - bought Staples magenta & blue inks but printer won't print those colors but did print older Canon inks not needing replacing; bought new Canon magenta & blue inks but...

What you can do is take the ink cartridges out of the print head and remove the printhead. Hold the print head over a trash can and take some 409 cleaner and spray the little pads inside the print head til you start noticing the colors dripping into the trash can. You will them want to dry off the print head as much as possible and litely wipe off the outside and the bottom of the print head with a paper towel. Then reseat the printhead back into the printer and the inks. You will then want to run a nozzle check from your printer software or from the printer properties. If the inks still are not showing up run one or two cleanings. If the issue still persists then you might have to replace the printhead. If this is the case you can look up part number: QY6-0059-000 online to replace the print head.

Ink is smearing

Ink may be flowing out of your tanks too fast, or your print head needs replaced (as a canon owner i know that canon printers are designed to ware the printer head) so do need replaced every now and then.
with epson printers you need to replace sponges, and canons need the heads replaced... and Lexmark printers need to be put in the trash!
But it might just be a ink tank flowing just to quick.
do about 3 or 4 print head cleans using your printer driver software and see if it helps.

"WRONG CARTRIDGE" continues to flash on the screen.

I have experienced the "Wrong Cartridge" error about 4 times in four years. I have never bought a replacement print head. I do occasional printing each week. Typically the problem occurs after a color cartridge goes empty and the ink dried to the print head. The solution for me has been to remove the cartridges, remove the print head, place the print head in hot water in the kitchen sink (softens water based ink that has hardened)and then use a Q-Tip or tissue paper to clean the print head until it is nice and shiny. Reinstall the print head, insert ink cartridges that are not empty, let the printer cycle through a self-test, use the set button to accept vertical and horizontal print patterns and you'll be good to go!
If that doesn't fix it, you'll need to replace the printhead ($49-69 depending on where you buy it.

Canon bjc-85 printer not printing


You most likely have a failed printhead and the head will need replacing. Alternatively your ink system assy is not pruging the head and thus faulty and may need replacing. If the unit is under canon warranty, take it to your local canon service centre with your proof or purchase. If not you can try to run a few cleans, but in my experience this will not help if the head or ink system is at all faulty.

I need to change the printer head in our canon iPF 700. I have the new print head but, it will not let me change the head becasue the ink level it too low. We replaced all 6 inks last wednesday and only...

you can solve this error code by removing the purge unit (take care of the ink).
Then you have to turn upside down the unit to check the gears. There is a white gear that moves in the ''air''. you have to re adjust the gear to transfer the move normally.
Then the problem dissapears.
Also you have to check if the motor is still moving.
