Re: Error Message is saying "Type of print head in incorrect. Install correct print head

[ Edited ]

Wow, where on earth did you find one for $400?  Isn't that more than the printer cost originally?  I found mine on ebay for $30.

 

Unfortunately, it may be that the communication between the control panel and the printhead may be compromised.  It may be time to look for a new printer.

After trying several times to reinstall print head, my printer is still showing the same message. Can you suggest additional help.

Thank you!

Go back through this thread. You may have to replace the printhead. Or there could be a problem with the control panel communication and you are out of luck. I replaced mine and it worked for a short while, but I had further problems. I'm thinking it was a problem in the control panel. I bought a new printer.

Check previous posts regarding this. You can try to replace the printhead, but I think these errors just mean that the control panel is failing to communicate properly with the printer and it is on its way out. I bought a new printer after problems kept arising after replacing the printhead.

I have a MG5750. After clearing a paper jam (which was quite tricky) I got this message although I hadn't changed the print head. It was working perfectly well a couple of minutes before. The suggestion of removing the ink tanks and releasing the grey catch didn't make much sense since neither side appeared to have such a thing (other than a sort of plastic bracket). I'm stuck!
