Question about Dell P703w Printer

Open Question

The panel on the printer says the printhead is missing, not installed correctly, or has come loose. We changed the print cartridges last week (with Dell brand) and the printer worked that day, but is giving me an error message today. I have taken theh print cartridges out and back in half a dozen times, but can't get rid of the message. I did have to gently tug on the guide cable to get the print head to the center of the printer

Same problem I am having. Replaced 2x. Clean the contacts with alcohol, if that does not does trash the unit and get a HP where you can go anywhere for ink.I read all over that these are bad units.

Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.

Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.

Try these steps if this did not resolve try to clear the memory of the printer
and try to print ..

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

SOURCE: Dell 926 won't recognize new color cartridge

Try this...shut down the printer. Insert new cartridge, let the printer cycle out with new cartridge. then reboot the computer. This should solve the problem. The cache in the printer will not cycle out. It wants to see the printer as a new entity

Printhead Loose or missing. Install printhead or ink cartridges.


THE PRINT HEAD is the LASER that puts the image on the drum which puts the image on the transfer belt then paper or the drum puts on the paper. Missing the Print Head !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! did you get it second hand? Not something you can get at a store. Contact the company and see about it being repaired.

I have changed out my black ink cartridge and now it says Attention: Print head loose, missing or not installed correctly.


Had exactly the same issue - working fine until ink cartridge changed (kodak for kodak - not a copy). Then can only get 'print head error message'.
Multiple attempts to remove and re-install, power on/off etc. but can't shift the error message. New print head more expensive than a new printer!

Error message: Printhead missing, not installed correctly or has come loose


In regards to the error message with the printhead missing or come loose......I had that issue just shortly after I installed my printer. I was going crazy trying to fix it taking it out and reinstalling which was a pain, removing the cartridges and then the printhead to no avail. Finally I got smart and disconnected the power cord from the printer itself, not directly from the outlet. Once I did that and turned the printer back on the error was gone. It might have been a fluke, but it worked for me, so you might want to try it.
