This is a common problem it might be that your computer has not recognized that there is something new to install

1. go to your control panel on your start menu
2.then go to add remove hardware on the program that you want to remove
4. uninstall it and follow the directions on the screen very carefully
5.then put your cd back in and let it run and then follow every thing exactly as it says

Hope that this helps!

Print head not installed

You may have a defective print head.
When you lift up the lid does the head move to the center?
If so do the ink cartridges light up?
If it moves to the center and no lights you need a new head.

In the printer window it says print head is not installed. Install the print head.

Hi. Gain access to the printer head compartment and make out you are re-installing, make sure you use firm pressure to relocate in the compartment.

Instal cartridge message when everything is installed

It's telling you that you need a new printhead, Canon confuses us with that error. It's not talking about inks, it says replace printhead.

Hi Fixya
Many thanks for your interest, Imanaged to solve my problem, It was the microchip on the ink tank which was not set properly so all I did was reset the chip and it worked .
So if anyone has a similar problem first try resetting the microchip.
Kind regards to all, Roy.

I'm trying to install canon pixma mp520 printer but no disk

From your brief description I'm guessing your operating system is Windows? if it is Vista there may be compatability problems. Anyhow log on to look for your home area then search the support pages for the relevant drivers.
Hope This Helps!
Good luck,

Canon carepak extended service plan for pixma mp520

if you live in the uk i can offer you a few contacts who will give you a price who will cover but it might be worth once it breaks just to buy a new one because then you will have a years new warrenty on the product. MP520 is not really worth extended service plan to be honest.

Hope this is ok
