Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My MP760 has


If your cartridges are not the problem, follow the instructions, but if you suspect your cartridges, please replace them. Clean both the Cartridges's Head and the Cartridges interface on the printer. Blow away all the dust and clean whatever you can. Reboot the printer, this will solve your problem.

The window of my Pixma MP760 shows: "The type of printer head is not correct. Install the correct print head." I used my printer recently.


Hi there
Just take all your inks out then you will see the head take out the head by lifting the gray leaver up, gave it a good clean and put back it worth a try.

Error reading " The type of print head is not correct...


You need to check that you were able to install the genuine Canon cartridge. If it is already genuine, try to do a printer maintenance by cleaning the print head, calibrating and align printhead. You can run this using the printer tools.
