If only... But the majority of us are stuck in the land of the terminally failed Canon printer with no responsible manufacturer in sight to help us... Glad it worked for you though!

Last night I received the dreaded message on my Mx700. This is awful. It was in the middle of an important print job. I am extremely surprised that Cannon have not addressed this issue. I have also cleaned the print head. I am going to try one more time and then purchase another brand(not Cannon).

Having moved on from my Canon MP610 which was great while it worked, I put it aside for a free HP printer. I held on to the Canon in the hope of a miracle cure but decided yesterday that it was not likely. However just to satisfy my curiousity I decided to dismember it to see what there was in the print head area. No finess in dismantling, just ripping off panels until I had the print head parts seperated. There were no electrical sensors or like in the ink pads but the print head carrier had a PC board with a lot of interesting components. I suspect that the "printhead error" code refers to the actual carrier and electronics that needs replacing, not the easy accessable printhead. Whatever Canon has designed into these printers is in the difficult to remove carrier and would be expensive to replace. So I kept the carrier etc and dumped the rest into the bin. I can post a photo of the dismembered carrier if someone can suggest a suitable host; ...Youtube?
