Hello Dear,
The Print Head in your printer is physically damaged and so even though it is present and installed it will not be detected by the Printer, you need to purchase and install a new print head for your printer.
Warm Regards,

Hope it will work for you.

This machine uses ink tanks.
The ink tanks are installed into the print head.
Turn off the printer and open the lid.

it is very easy. Remove the print carts then on the left and right side of the ink holder is a small loop at the end of a wire. Move that to the side and pull it up. Do the same for the other side. Next pull out the print head that these two wires were holding in place.

Hi
IO have one of these printers as my daily workhorse. Thankfully I haven't had the problem you are having.
Did you remove the print-head from the printer and clean it with running warm water?
When I get a possible print-head problem I always do that, rinse it until the water runs clean. Then dry it on kitchen roll making sure that the contact on the back are completely dry before refitting it to the printer. Generally this has cleared any problems (I have several Canon printers - I'm not just referring to the 5200 now).
However If you still get the error it may be worth contacting your nearest Canon service centre. New print-heads are not exactly cheap but these printers are so good it's worth keeping it going. They will probably be able to diagnose the problem quickly and accurately and tell you if it is cost-effective to repair. I don't know what would be involved with the Eprom error. - probably a circuit board change inside the printer.

Unfortunately many of the All-In-One devices are like this. If the Cartridges are installed but empty the system is reading that fault code as the Cartridges not being installed. Even though you are not using the ink the printer is most likely doing a light head cleaning when it cycles. Replace teh cartridges and it should clear up.

Canon pixma ip4500 print head problem 5 lights flashing. Reinstalling print head does not solve problem.


Printhead can be washed under running hot tap to flush all the old ink away. I did mine and it didn't affect performance after drying it overnight in a warm area. Re-fitted it and away it went. Don't worry about getting connector board wet at the back.
