One would think this would be an easy question to search for on the internet, but no luck. My sister in-law doesn't know how to get the printhead in an area where she can replace it. She said it sits way in the corner f the rail. How do you change the printhead on this unit?

I checked the cannon web site for solutions to this and found I would need more information... like what is you operation system. Essentially though the site is very helpful and easy to navigate. A tip... in the search window at the top of their site... type in MG5400.
1. The inkhead is dirty. 2. You are almost out of ink.
Here's what I can suggest.
Run a printhead clean up via the printer's control panel or clean the inkhead with a clean wet cloth. You should use a warm water to wet the cloth. Make sure that the inkhead is dry before putting it back or using it again in your printer.
By the way, I know a software that works great with any operating system. It's a technician software. What it does is it automates your computer's maintenance mechanism. If you are interested, then look up RADARSYNC in google and install it. I'm actually using it as well.
Thanks for the additional information... I know what you mean about this feature and you're not alone... Quite a few people have complained that it makes life very difficult.
One solution it to apply a registry "fix" and this is detailed here: http://wizardev.ca/web-words/fix-for-ie7s-shrink-to-fit-printing-option
However that may not work for Vista so as a workaround for now I'd try a couple of things.
1. Try running windows update and make sure you have all the latest security updates installed as it looks like one of these may have solved part of the issue.
Because I don't use Vista myself I can't confirm if registry change would be allowed (because of all the security in Vista) but you could try running this code from the command window. [code] reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min" /v iexplore.exe /t
REG_DWORD /d 100 /f [/code]
More likely is that you'll need to use this work-around instead..
Before you Print Preview option (click the down arrow to the right of the print icon on your IE7 toolbar) and change the "Shrink to Fit" option to 100% or a comfortable proportion.
Hope that helps and just as a thought... Internet Explorer 8 is now out and "might" resolve this but I'd hold off on installing it for a couple of months until any bugs have been ironed out.
when was the last time you changed the cartridge/inkhead could be ink buildup and causing it to snag Inkjets are horrible about drying and clogging. if inkhead is removeable you may take it off and clean the area that comes in contact or proximity to the paper, I would also check the bottom part of the roller and housing for anything that could be jammed in there or stuck.
