I just tried several times to reseat the print head, which has never given me problems, nor have I ever done anything to it to cause this.
I'm still getting the red-outlined warning that the Type of print head is incorrect (really? same one as it's always been)
After being a loyal Canon customer for over 25 years, this is it.
About to go on Amazon to buy a new printer and it will NOT be Canon.

MX922 to the list! Error 1403 "The type of print head is incorect. Install the correct print head" happened when I was printing!
I took other head from different mx922 (because I have seven of them!) and printer works just fine, it means the old head is dead. Just replace it - and your printer will work again! No problem at all, right Canon? Oh wait... whole new printer costs $70 on amazon, and just one printhead - $75. Hey, Canon where I can buy new printhead for $10? What?
PS I bought that printer 15 months ago
Never Canon Again!

Same here on My 922...I may have printed 100 pages max (no exaggeration) since buying it new in 2015 and the printer head is bad? I have reseated and cleaned the head sevaral times and set inks several times and code 1403 wont go away.

I too fell vitim to this code. I went through all the steps mentioned a gazillion times on dozens of threads. When that didn't work I ordered a new printhead (QY6-0082) and still have the 1403 error code. This is an issue that has been going on for over 4 years. Canon has settled on class action law suite in 2015, but has done NOTHING to fix the problem. People are still dealing with it 3 years later. I've started writing letters to the company, consumer groups, and the state consumer protection agency.
This is the last Canon I will ever buy.

Same thing has happened to my MG7520. Pulling the ink cartridges and printer head and then turning off the power before reinstalling had no effect. Shame on Canon for not solving this issue with so many of their printers.

I have a MG7550 which was working perfectly until suddenly this 1403 message came up so I couldn't do anything with the machine. Couldn't use the scanner or copier. Tried all the usual stuff removing cartridges, cleaning the electrics on the cartridges, turning on and off blah blah. Nothing. Then I tried turning the machine on but before it finished going into printing mode with all the whirring and clicking that involves, I got to the start up screen and chose set up, maintenance, clean or adjust device, then auto print head alignment. The display was indicating the levels of the ink on all the cartridges so I figured out that that it had decided it did recognise them after all!
Anyway after it had done the print head alignment I did some normal printing and it worked fine.
No more error message.

It does not allow us to get to maintenance on the MX922 ... or settings while warming up ... just does it's thing, goes to code ... and you're stuck.

jcship99, thanks! I tried to do that with my broken mx922 - and it works!!! Here is a summary what you need to try if you got Error 1403 on Canon MX922:
0) Put few pages of paper
1) Connect power cord, turn the printer on
2) Start to click continuously on "Menu" button (while printer is booting)
3) When printer turned on - you will be in that Menu, than go to Maintenance -> Auto Head Alignment
4) It will take 5-10 min and you Done!
I hope it will help you!
Now my mx922 is working fine! Thanks!
UPDATE: After ~400 pages I got the same error again. I repeated the same steps - and printer works again
