Question about Canon PIXMA MP540 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I need to extract the printhead from a Canon MP540 printer in order to install a new one. I have just received an incomplete answer from FIXYA. When I turn on the printer and raise the cover, the printhead does not center but remains in the far right position, making it impossible to raise the lever to release the printhead. Can the printhead be centered manually?

The print head is not designed to be moved manually and damage may occur if you try to do so forcefully.
To center the print head to replace ink tanks and to replace/remove print head you should do the following:
1. Make sure power is turned on and open the Paper Output Tray gently. 2. Lift the scanning unit (cover) until it stops. Lift with document cover closed. The print head holder should move to the replacement position (center).
Do not force print head holder to move nor touch it while it's moving. These parts are very delicate and generally are made mostly of plastic.
IMPORTANT If the Scanning Unit (Cover) is left open for more than 10 minutes, the Print Head Holder moves to the right. In this case, close and reopen the Scanning Unit (Cover).

Canon pixma mp540 manual


Hi,

This error is an issue with the printers electronics. The only thing you can try to fix this is by removing the printhead from the printer. Wipe down the printhead as best you can cleaning any ink that may be on the base or back of it. If you have contact cleaner you can also spray contact cleaner on the contacts on the back of the printhead and inside the printer. Dry it off as best you can reinstall the printhead and hopefully you will be up and running.

Unfortunatley it is one of those errors that can pop up out of nowhere and kill a printer. I work for rihac and through the installation and service of printers using our inklink product we have found that this is the only solution to bypass the error.

My MP540 is printing solid colour as stripes (cyan and magenta are low but not out) - has never done this before when inks are low


You probably have a nozzle that is not working. Try to do the alignment of the printhead, and do a cleaning!

How to clean a printhead for canon pixma MP540 . i have used the deep clean but no help


Deep clean should clean the printhead, but it's an expensive way to do it, since a lot of ink is used.

Do you have lines of non printable areas? Maybe replacing the printhead will help.

May be out of ink in certain nozzles on the printhead.

I called a few days ago about my printer problem. I had an error message 6202. I have received the printer that you sent me to replace mine. This printer has a problem, too. My reference no is #6823342...


Would you mind if I ask you to please clarify? Did you call FixYa or did you call the Printer Manufacturer support? If you reference number and the order number is FixYa's, I'll help you forward it to the FixYa support so that they can verify the order and it's status.

Since you didn't mention the Printer's model and Brand, I can't give you any tip, it'd be much appreciated if you can let me know about your printer so that I can help you fix the problem.

Thanks and Awaiting.

I have new printhead.


Hello,

First, go to Canon i9900 Support

If the Support & Service tab is not selected, click on it.

In the search box type reseating printhead and click Search.

One of the results will be "How do I reseat/remove the printhead?"

Click it. A step by step (with animation) will be shown. Just install the new printhead when it calls to reseat the printhead.

Make sure you do the printhead alignment after installing. if you are unsure about how to do this, go back to the support page above and search for align printhead. There will be step by step instructions for this too.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi there , my canon MP630 has all of a sudden 6c10 error ?


That error says that either something is jammed in the purge assembly, the unit on the right that cleans the printhead, or the purge assembly is stuck or broken. If you unplug the printer with the carriage in the center you can use a flashlight to inspect the area on the far right where the printhead parks.
