I have an error on my canon pixma mp500... it says The type of printhead is incorrect. Install the correct print head. I bought some ink that says that it is compatible for my printer and when I tried it...


i would like to suggest that u should not use any alternate cartridges, plizz buy the originally manufactured ones, else ur printer could get damaged! the reason being that the ink head of some compatible cartridges short circuited very easily compared to the genuine ones, and a fake cartridge could damage ur printer in an instance! so, be careful!

I have an printhead error for no reason. Please advise. The message says "The type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head.


There is always a reson. Try checking that the cartridge you installed is the correct one for your printer. Some refurbished also cause this problem as they have been recycled too many times.

Canon Pixma MP500 error


ok I figured out what to do. Open the over take out all your ink cartriages. Then flip the print head level on the left hand side up and squeeze the top of the print head (where all your ink sits on) and lift it up. You may want to blow off any dust that may be in there and put the peint head back and replace al your ink put the level down and you should be good to go if not you may have to replace the head.

Error: The type of Printhead is incorrect, Install the correct printhead.


Ok i know this is kinda old, but i found a solution.

First to those people to state I found a solution from hp, cannon etc etc and not give out the direct link, or instructions, then whats the point fing posting????

This error happens when you install an oem cartridge onto your system. Or havent used it in a while, so the machine is somehow misfigured.

This solution is for canon mp800, simply switch off printer. HOLD stop/reset and press and HOLD on/off button. release stop/reset. Now press stop.reset twice. then release on/off button, press stop/reset 4 times, wait 20 seconds, press on/off button twice.

switch machine back on and the printer should find the cartridges.

This method maybe the same for your mp*** if not google RESET CANON PRINTER MP*** and you'll find the correct buttons to press.

here's a printer on reseting a bunch of canon printers http://tricks-collections.com/reset-printer-canon-mp140-mp160-mp180-mp210-mp220-mp460-mp470-mp500-mp510-mp530-mp600-mp610-mp800-mp820-mp810-mp830-mp960-mp970/

good luck.. and FU canon for adding you scamming chips into cartridges.
