I am getting the same message that print head is incorrect on a canon MP830 did you ever get a solution to this problem? - Vozza
Sadly I tried everything I could find on the internet and the ideas of others but without luck. I did have some success with another printer of the same brand MP780. It wasn't printing the black ink at all, but it wasn't giving the same message either. Anyway, I soaked in water over the weekend, rinsed it a million times and it is now running perfectly. Good Luck
