remove the cartridge...turn off the unit....unplug the power cable...manually slide the carriage assembly\ printhead back and forthalso clean the rail against which the assembly slides with a tissue ensuring that there is no ink residue on itclean the golden contacts of the cartridges and the printhead with a cotton swab dipped in little alcoholonce these steps have been done turn on printer and checkif still the error repeats, the printhead may require service . i would suggest to call up canon at 1-800-OK-CANON if unit is within warranty else if out of warranty you may replace printhead yourself or through any local printer repair storelet me know if you have any questionsi hope you understand that in case of hardware fault or mechanical jam i can only suggest steps to rectify it but cannot make a bad part work again or clear an internal jamlet me know if you have any questionsI hope I've provided the information you were seeking.
