You'll probably need to replace the whole printhead.  It's a bit of a job on that machine

SOURCE: How do I remove the printhead Canon Pixma MP780

OK lift the gray lever up and remove the cartridges, look just below the gray lever and you will see two rounded protrousions inside towards the rear of the black box, grasp these protrousions with your thumbs and forfingers and gently pull toward you, ther may be some resestance but pull smoothly do not ****, the print head will come out.  There are no wires to disconnect the circuits are touch circuits.

SOURCE: how to install QY6-0061-000 Printhead

You open the lid and wait for the carriage to come tothe center, remove all inks, lift the gray lever straight up and tilt the printhead forward from the top and lift straight out. The new one goes in bottom first and then you tilt back the top, lower the lever again and install the inks.

My canon mx452 keeps sending a message on screen saying printer not responding.I have run a diagnosis and it says no problem.


Make sure you are getting blank printouts when printing from the printers control panel, not just your computer. If it's printing blanks from both of these procedures, the focus would be on the "Printhead". Some Printheads are easy to remove, sits under the inks. Should be a grey latch you release to get access to the printhead. (remove inks first). Soak this printhead in a solution of windex, about a quarter inch deep, for about 20 minutes, wipe clean with isopropol alcohol and reinstall in your printer and do another alignment / cleaning procedure. If this does'nt fix the issue, you might try replacing the Printhead or retiring this printer.

My canon mp 730 has an alarm lit and says wrong cartridge. I tried removing print head and cleaning with alcohol...no luck...put in a different cartridge...no luck. What else can I do


On Canon that error means the printhead is bad, nothing to do with the inks. The translation from Japanese to English made the error confusing. You need to buy a new printhead, the part number is on the side of the printhead and starts with QY6-

How do i replace the printhead


The Print head is sitting in a cradle. So do not confuse the cradle with actual print head. The cradle is the one that slides left and right on the metallic rod. Do NOT try to remove the cradle.

Make sure to use genuine Canon ink cartidges.

1) Unplug the power to the printer. Remove the USB printer cable.
2) Lift open the top cover by depressing the round button on the right side of the printer; exposing the printer ink cartridges.
3)Lift the grey lever on top of the cartridges. This dis-engages the printhead electrical connections. Remove all the 4 ink cartridges from the printhead. From the cradle hold the printhead from the top and lift the printhead by tilting it toward you. Make sure not to touch the electrical contacts in the back printhead.
4) Take a small plastic bowl and fill it with 1/4 inch or less with Rubbing Alcohol(70% Isopropyl Alcohol). Dip the bottom of the printhead in the alcohol. Soak printhead in the alcohol and shake it lightly so the dried ink clogging the printhead can come loose. Us paper towels to soak excess alcohol from the bottom of the printhead. Make sure not to damage the printheads.
5) Pour some alcohol from the top of the each inlet of the ink cartridge seat and again soak up any excess alcohol with paper towel. Let the print head dry up little.
6) Put the printhead back in the cradle and insert back the ink cartridges in their right seat. Lower the grey lever back into its position so the electrical contacts are made on the printhead.
7) Plug the power and USB port.
8) Print a picture or diagram with color in draft mode. You might have to do this couple of times, so that the inks starts flowing from the ink cartridge through the print head. Then print the same in high quality. If the heads are unclogged your printer should work as new.

Just one bit of advice: you may wonder if you've got the position right because the grey lever may not seem to be able to engage - it will, but needs a fairly strong push to click into position again.

CANON MP830 all in one is sayin" the type of printhead is incorrectn Install the correct Printhead."


Hi follow the instructions as above...
ie Remove inks and print head...

But instead...
Whilst Canon print head is out...

Use cotton wool and alcohol and clean electrical contacts on back of print head and where they make contact inside printer.

Then install print head and inks and test.

If it does not work you may need to replace print head.
