To get rid of the error message.Turn the printer Off.Hold down the paper source button & the online button at the same time & hit the power button once.Continue to hold down the paper source and online buttons until you see the printer name " Canon W6200" on the printers LCD display and then release the two buttons.The printer will intialize & enter service mode. At this time I unplugged the printer for five seconds & then plug it back in. I then opened the front cover & removed the old Print head & closed all head latches and the front cover. Hit the power button to turn your printer on & the printhead carriage will move to the right & install print head will be shown on the LCD screen.Open the front cover and install the new printhead,close all latches & the front cover. The printhead carriage should move to the right & begin to prime the lines and the new head with ink.This may take several minutes.You printer should work after the priming is done!

Canon ImagePrograf 750 Error: Execute printhead cleaning. If this message is still displayed, replace the printhead. Printing stopped.

It sounds like you have already tried a few steps to address the issue. Here are a few more things you can try:
  1. Turn off the printer, unplug it from the power source, wait a few minutes, and then plug it back in and turn it on.
  2. Check to make sure the printer is not in an error state. If it is, clear the error and try printing again.
  3. Try cleaning the print head manually. To do this, remove the print head and use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean it. You can also use a cleaning solution designed specifically for print heads.
  4. Check the ink cartridges to make sure they are installed correctly and have enough ink. If they are low or empty, replace them.
If none of these steps work, it may be best to contact Canon support for further assistance. They may be able to provide additional troubleshooting steps or offer a repair service for your printer.

What is error 5101

When the message "5100 / 5101 Printer error has occurred. Turn off power then back on again. If problem persists, see the manual." is displayed, the behavior of the print head holder is interrupted.

I have changed out my black ink cartridge and now it says Attention: Print head loose, missing or not installed correctly.

Had exactly the same issue - working fine until ink cartridge changed (kodak for kodak - not a copy). Then can only get 'print head error message'.
Multiple attempts to remove and re-install, power on/off etc. but can't shift the error message. New print head more expensive than a new printer!

Printer don't print documents. Status "PHD Life

Dear Diogo,

This error message occurs when the print head life is over. Every print head is designed with a specific life time (it is purely a mechanical device). Once the life time is over you will get this error message.

I recommend you to calibrate the print head, if you have that option in the software or front panel display(if any). Also, you can try using a new set of cartridges (if you printer is ink jet)

Thanks and regards,
Dr Tony.

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???

CoaI have just added new ink and the colors do not print correctly and there is no black ink printing. What is the problem with my printer

Black printer ink in Kodak Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

HP Photosmart C5380 All-in-One. Ink system Failure. Oxc19a0023 My computer has Windows XP and IS is Internet Explorer.

The first step is to try resetting the printer. Turn the unit off, unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds before reconnecting the power. Turn on the printer. If you still have the error message, you may need to clean the print head. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3560275&docname=c01458034 has the details.
Remove all of the cartridges, lift the handle on the carriage until it stops. Lift the print head straight up. Once the print head is out, you need several lint-free cloths and distilled or bottled water. With a damp cloth, wipe the electrical contacts from bottom to top (do not go past the edge). Then wipe the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts - wipe away from the nozzles. Wipe the ramps on either side. Dry all three areas.

With a new damp cloth, wipe the contacts inside the printer from top to bottom until no ink remains on the contacts. Dry this area.

Reinstall the print head and lower the latch carefully. Reinstall the ink cartridges making sure that they snap into place.

Check if the error message repeats. If it does, try resetting the printer (power cord unplugging cycle). If you still get the error, the print head may need to be replaced. If a new print head is in and the error occurs, talk to HP support if the printer is under warranty. You'll have to decide if these last two steps are worthwhile if the printer is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.
