Hello
This is the troubleshooting recommendation from the Canon support center about this error message:
"If the print head is already installed, remove the print head and reinstall it.
If this error still remains, print head replacement or machine repair may be needed
".
I would think the problem is the print head is defective, and this is the usual cause of the message, when it fails the print head is sensed as being incorrect rather than just defective. You can try one thing before you replace the print head, clean it throughly, accumulated ink may be causing a poor electrical circuit and triggering the message.

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???

Hi
I think you need to check if the inkjet (print head/ Cartouch) is installed ok on the printer.
& Make sure it is the type supported by your printer.
I hope this was your problem.
