There are 2 ink cartridges that came with the printer (PG-40 and CL-31). These are the consumables that are also print head. You must install these in your printer.

Follow the setup guides/manuals that came with your printer. If you can't find them, they're downloadable from Canon's website.

I have installed a new pg 30 print cartrige in my Canon MP 470 printer and I get a U051 Error print Head is not installed error. How do I reset printer to fix this error?


Hi there !

The ink cartridge is not properly fitted or installed or does not detect the ink catridge, remove again and fitted it correctly.
.
Also, clean with alcohol the gold chips of the ink cartridge and maybe there is sticky residue when you remove the sticker. Turnoff your printer and plug it on again to refresh the memory.

I hope it helps you.
