When I went to reload paper on my printer I heard the head move and then heard a loud noise abd the alarm light went on advising me to "check Printer press resume key" When I did this the same loud noise appeared. When I opened up the cover to look at the print head, the head did not move. Is there a band or some device that my be broken? If so any ideas on how to repair or is it not repairable.

To fix this you first need to remove the ink and the print head. Wash the 4 ink pads in luke warm water. Keep running the water over the bottom of the print head until the water shows no sign of ink colouration. Make sure all of the print head is completely dry before replacing it into your printer. After restarting your printer you will probably see the alarm light still flashing. Now hold your finger on the resume button for up to 2 minutes or until you hear a clunking sound. Hold your finger on this button and the printer will fix itself and the alarm light will stop.
Hi,I would suggest you to first trying unplugging/ switching off your device for 5 minutes. This restores and refreshes the device. Go for it Let me know if this works, if it doesn’t then I’ll provide some other alternative solution. Thanks
I FOUND A SOLUTION that worked for me for the CANON F50:
1. Enter Service Mode - by pressing "menu then copy then #"
2. Select TEST MODE
3. Select (8) PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE
4. Select 3 (EEPROM CLEAR)
5. Select 0 (INK COUNT)
6. Press Stop/Reset key
7. Press On/Off Key
The covers are pretty easy to remove and access print catridges once you know how. Unscrew screws as they become available, 4 on back then two on each side then 4 on top. the balck plastic front bezels pop off as do the grey side panles. Try pulling out and up from the top. This can be a little tricky but I have not had to be too brazen and have not broken any panels. I am pretty sure that clicking sounds indicates broken parts and a trip to the repair shop. Basically the lock to keep the heads covered is not disengaging.
