I'm getting a message for the first time "wrong cartridge". Does it mean I need a new print head so it will print? Do I have to take it into a place where they can fix it for me?

I am getting a "wrong print head" error message.


Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the power-cord from the wall-outlet.
Reconnect the power.
Turn the printer on.
If you still get the same message, it's time to responsibly recycle the printer,
and buy a replacement -- maybe you can buy a new PIXMA that takes the same ink-cartridges???

"WRONG CARTRIDGE" continues to flash on the screen.


I have experienced the "Wrong Cartridge" error about 4 times in four years. I have never bought a replacement print head. I do occasional printing each week. Typically the problem occurs after a color cartridge goes empty and the ink dried to the print head. The solution for me has been to remove the cartridges, remove the print head, place the print head in hot water in the kitchen sink (softens water based ink that has hardened)and then use a Q-Tip or tissue paper to clean the print head until it is nice and shiny. Reinstall the print head, insert ink cartridges that are not empty, let the printer cycle through a self-test, use the set button to accept vertical and horizontal print patterns and you'll be good to go!
If that doesn't fix it, you'll need to replace the printhead ($49-69 depending on where you buy it.

Wrong cartridge message


It appears that the problem is not in the ink cartridges at all but rather the print head assembly. Upon disassembly of the print head it can be discovered that the thing appearing to be a logic chip, is probably responsible for several standard commands including cartridge status. One should replace the printhead and then followed the instructions on aligning the printhead. This solves the problem. It can be  bought from Canon for about $45.00 including shipping. Hopes this helps. Thank you, Have a nice day...!

Empty incoming faxes


Hi,
Check to make sure the ink is coming out of the cartridge as this often takes some coaxing with a new one. Take the cartridge out of the printer and dab the print head on a piece of paper and check to see if the print head leaves a mark on the paper. If you see 2 stripes on your paper it means the cartridge is okay. On the other hand, if there is no ink mark left on the paper it means that the ink is not flowing freely from the print head. In this case, fill a saucer or old coffee mug with hot water and place the cartridge in the water so that only the print head is submerged. Leave it for a few minutes and then dab it on the paper again to see if the ink is flowing.
Please let me know if this is not what's causing the problem.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Alarm says "wrong cartridge"


That happens when the print head sensor does not detect the cartridge.

To start unplug printer power cord for two minutes, and see if this can reset the error.

The wrong cartridge error may be caused also by a bad cartridge, therefore ,as first step you need to est a different cartridge, possibly a new original one.

Check also if the cartridge metal sensor inside the ink carriage is dirty and must be clean, in this case use isopropyl alcohol and cotton to clean metal contacts inside the carriage.

If that cannot fix the problem, then there is a lose connection on the wires connected to the ink carriage / print head assembly. TWhen that happens, the wires connected at the back of the ink carriage must be tested and eventually replaced.

Canon MP F50 "wrong cartridge" error


remove all cartridges leaving printhead intact.
close cover, turn off
turn on, let power up, error message should be gone.
open cover, reinstall cartridges
if you cleaned your print head like I did you'll probly
eventually end up getting a new one anyway, due to the color variations
but I can at least print text.

Wrong cartridge


I have the multipass mp700 and have just experienced the same message ..... wrong cartridge. After reading the manual, from the disc, it means that there's something wrong with the print head, most likely needs cleaning, but it won't clean because the printer is sending a malfunction message. I will be trying to clean the head and if that doesn't fix it then I'll buy a new print head. Good luck with the problem.
