I printed several things just fine, then I get a message I have the incorrect print head and it should be replaced.  What does all this mean?  What do I do since all the instructions about shutting off the machine, deleting print list, etc. don't work.

 My machine is Canon Pixma 5220.  I even had the drivers checked and suppossedly reinstalled updated ones.

Hi pcollister,

 

Please try removing and reseating the ink tanks and print head in the printer by following the steps shown here, then turn off the printer, unplug the power cord and leave it out for at least 10 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it back on to see if the error is resolved.  Should the error continue, the printer may require servicing.  We ask that you please contact a Canon technical support representative here for further assistance. A representative will be happy to help you free of charge.
