Error: print head is installed not correctly & yellow light is blinking 5 times(Error E5). Normal print head is installed from other same printer but the error is still on. How to reset it?

This cannot be reset, tricked, or buffaloed .

The print heads have a built in device that makes sure you cannot swap out the part from another printer and install it other than he printer it originally it was installed in.

Blue is missing, after diep cleaning it will work for about 5 print and stops again. Black pink and yellow only. Changed cardwridge same problem. Gave up.

Your printhead is going bad. The contacts aren't making proper contact to read the cartridge. If you are refilling, you could have gotten a drop of ink on the contacts. Clean the contacts with a cotton swab moistened (not dripping) with alcohol.Also, NEVER touch the contacts on the printer OR the ink cartridge.

How do I change the printer only to print in black ink? The page set up does not show me how to print in black only.

You will need to go to the Printers Property page and then select Printing Preferences. In there you can select Greyscale.

Hope this helps, best of luck..

Bought a canon super g3 laser printer approx 8 months ago which prints in black and white. can i put a colour cartridge into this printer?? thank you

Super G3 is not the model. It is Canon's fax technology. It is classified as a laser fax/printer. This is a monochrome printer which means you can print only one colour at a time. You can print all black or all yellow, all red or whatever colour cartridge is available.It has no capability to mix colours. Not any colour (including black) toner will work as the composition is different to suit the printer model. Hope this helps.

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown

the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.
