Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My printer has been working fine, today when I went to print I get the following error, "The Type of Printhead is Incorrect, Install the correct Printhead"
I have not replaced anything, it is the factory original printhead, roughly 6-8 months old. Reset does not help.
I have a Canon PIXMA MP830 printer with the same problem have reinstalled the printhead but no Luck with printing receive the same message. Thanks
Ok i know this is kinda old, but i found a solution.
First to those people to state I found a solution from hp, cannon etc etc and not give out the direct link, or instructions, then whats the point fing posting????
This error happens when you install an oem cartridge onto your system. Or havent used it in a while, so the machine is somehow misfigured.
This solution is for canon mp800, simply switch off printer. HOLD stop/reset and press and HOLD on/off button. release stop/reset. Now press stop.reset twice. then release on/off button, press stop/reset 4 times, wait 20 seconds, press on/off button twice.
switch machine back on and the printer should find the cartridges.
This method maybe the same for your mp*** if not google RESET CANON PRINTER MP*** and you'll find the correct buttons to press.
here's a printer on reseting a bunch of canon printers http://tricks-collections.com/reset-printer-canon-mp140-mp160-mp180-mp210-mp220-mp460-mp470-mp500-mp510-mp530-mp600-mp610-mp800-mp820-mp810-mp830-mp960-mp970/
good luck.. and FU canon for adding you scamming chips into cartridges.

Don't know if this was what really fixed it, but I cleaned (with toilet paper) what is called the "ink supply ports" as well. I just brushed over them very lightly. The Canon support site says not to touch them, but since it would otherwise mean buying a new printer, I figured it was worth a shot.
Also, I removed and replaced the print head twice.

This error may come accompanied by error (U052), happens often and I think I can help with the solution, but you must follow the steps in the same way as presented below, remembering that if you have any other questions, just write a comment, I'll be here To help you.
in case the problem is with the cartridges
Error printhead type is incorrect install the correct printhead Canon...
You can look at the electrical manager, ie connect the printer to another location, often the little power that it can receive the printer, can cause these errors.
Clean the printer contacts, which connect to the print head, here something that can help you in this regard, it is not for your Canon printer, but show which is the important part to clean.

Go to www.canontechsupport.com and follow the thread to get to the support for your mutifunction machine and error message. Removing all the tanks and reseating the printhead worked for me, although it appears it didn't work for others.
I carefully wiped some of the ink from the edges of the printhead assembly, but don't know if this really did anything. My 830 is about 18 months old and I have been using both Cartridge World and Canon ink tank replacements.
