Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Try checking the seating of each of the cartridges. If you have inserted new cartridges, make sure that you have removed the tape covering the electronic chip and the breather at the top of the cartridges. Reseat the print head according to the troubleshooting instructions in the user manual. If you need a manual you can download it from
Hope this helps.

IO have one of these printers as my daily workhorse. Thankfully I haven't had the problem you are having.
Did you remove the print-head from the printer and clean it with running warm water?
When I get a possible print-head problem I always do that, rinse it until the water runs clean. Then dry it on kitchen roll making sure that the contact on the back are completely dry before refitting it to the printer. Generally this has cleared any problems (I have several Canon printers - I'm not just referring to the 5200 now).
However If you still get the error it may be worth contacting your nearest Canon service centre. New print-heads are not exactly cheap but these printers are so good it's worth keeping it going. They will probably be able to diagnose the problem quickly and accurately and tell you if it is cost-effective to repair. I don't know what would be involved with the Eprom error. - probably a circuit board change inside the printer.
