Question about Canon Pixma iP6000D InkJet Photo Printer
Here's a head scratcher for all you printer techie's. I've been servicing these printers for a while now and this is the first time I have received a message that says.."The appropriate printhead is not installed."
Now, I was basically in this machine to clean out the waste absorbers and the pump. Which I did. When I got it back together I put in the same printhead that came out of the machine. Yet, when attempting to do a print alignment I received the message above.
I also have no display showing anymore. Thought this was a contact issue, that I resolved, but still no display. Could the 2 be related?
I have taken the printhead carriage apart and all is connected and looks normal. I have checked all connections and everything seems to be fine.
Is there something I am missing here? Anyone have any information on this strange error?
At one point it did give me an error 5700. Here is the other strange thing...
The error above...The appropriate printhead not installed. Comes up on the computer screen, but guess what? No flashing, blinking lights to indicated that the print head needs replaced.
U scratchin yer head? cause I am. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Appropriate usually signifies that there's something amiss about the connection information either mechanically or electronically between the printer and the cartridge..I'd suggest you re load some drivers and see how that helps or does not?
