Canon Printer Pixam iP6400 Error Code 53

Hi Folks,

I have replaced the old Cartridges now I am getting this: Support Code : 53 Printing cannot be started because no print head is installed in the printer. Install the print head. Then perform the print head alignment and print again.

Please HELP!!

Needs to be asked. Obvious question (sorry) have you taken the print head out and then put it back in again?

Hi lotvic,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Yes. I have taken the Cartridges out, taken the Printhead out and cleaned it in flush. I noticed the Printhead had a lot of Black Ink on it. Allowed it to dry and put it back. I can't do a Clean or Deep Clean from the computer or the Printer because it won't allow it as it it says its at Standby mode. I have also switched it on and off. The little Yellow Light below the Green keeps Flashing. I have pressed that for a few seconds. No luck.

So has the message changed now to 'Standby mode'? If so try pressing the OK button or one of the COPY buttons (or both one after the other)

I'm using an old canon that I rescued from the loft when other one went kaput completely and it errors on start up and have found by pressing a combination of buttons I can get it working again. For instance I have to hold down the COPY button then switch the wall socket on and press three more buttons before it works ok, (for some strange reason mine is powered on with no regard to the on/off button) sorry for rambling, that doesn't solve your problem.
