On printer error cod 6A00 displayed, on computer screen icon says service error 5C10. Have cleaned ink wells and wiped off excess ink. After cleaning far right side a long skinny black piece came out,...


Hi


Error 5C10 means a paper jam or the printer has encountered an internal error. And error 6A00 is caused due a paper jam in the sheet feed unit or near the print head. You can also reset the printer to resolve this issue. On the printer press and hold the ON/OFF button or unplug the power cord. Wait for 10 seconds, press power button ON/OFF button again. If this doesn't resolve the error code then unplug the printer for 10 minutes. Also, inspect the back panel of the printer for any paper jams. To clear the paper jams---

Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable. Remove the jammed paper slowly using the following procedure. Open the rear cover to check if the paper is jammed. Pull out the cassette and check if the paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Stand the printer with the rear side down, holding the document cover. Press the tabs together and pull the green cover toward you. Check if the paper is jammed. (If you were not doing Duplex printing, you do not have to follow this procedure.) Close the green cover and place the printer back to a normal position. Reconnect the power cord and power on the printer. Confirm the Alarm light is off. Load paper back into the ASF or cassette. Press to clear the message and continue printing. If you are printing from application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Paper jammed


    This is how to clear paper jammed in canon inkjet printer.


    1. Protect yourself from shock. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the Canon Inkjet Printer. This is an important step when working inside ANY electronic device.

    2. Unhinge the back access panel of the printer. It seems repetitive to say this, but this door will be in the BACK of the printer.

    3. Look through the opened back panel and look for paper. Remove any and all paper you find jammed there.

    4. Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way that it did before you opened it.

    5. Find the front or top access panel. This is the panel you would lift to change ink cartridges. Open this access panel. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer, go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.

    6. Remove any paper you find jammed here. When pulling from the front there will be resistance from the paper feeder. Pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more stressful problem.

    7. Close the front access panel. Make sure that it falls or latches back in place. It should look the same way that it did before you opened it.

    8. Plug the printer's power cord into the wall outlet, and attempt to print again. If the printer prints the job, then you have successfully removed the paper jam

I have got error 5100 what does this mean


Hello

Error code 5100 describes a physical problem either with a paper jam or an incorrectly seated ink tank. Resolving the error is a quick process that only requires a few standard troubleshooting procedures.

Press down and hold the "On/Off" button, which is located on the printer's operator panel, for one second. Wait 15 seconds and then tap the button again. Attempt to print or scan a document.

Check the paper feed tray on the front end of the Canon printer to see if there is any paper visibly stuck inside the printer. Open the printer cover by gripping the front edge of the printer and lifting upwards.

Grab the edge of the jammed paper and gently pull towards you to remove the paper from the paper feeder. Unplug the Canon's power cable and USB cable, and then turn the printer around.

Pull off the rear plastic cover tab and check if there is any visible paper jam. Grab the edge of the paper and gently pull toward you until the paper is removed.

Push the rear plastic cover tab back into place, and reconnect the power cable and USB cable. Attempt to print or scan another document to see if the error is resolved.

Lift open the printer's cover again and wait for the ink carriage to slide into view. Press the "Push" button on the front of the first ink tank. Pull the tank out and then push it back into place to ensure it is properly seated.

Repeat the process with the other three ink tanks, and then close the printer's cover. Power the printer off and then back on again.



But in some other canon printers,Error code 5100 indicates that the waste ink absorber has reached maximum capacity. The Canon i860 printer uses the waste ink absorber to keep ink residue off the printer heads and internal printer components. To resolve this error code, the waste ink absorber must be cleaned out and the error code message needs to be reset.

Open the top of the printer.

Locate the waste ink absorber pad on the right side of the inside of the printer. Grasp the pad and pull up to remove.

Take the waste ink absorber pad to a sink. Run warm water over the pad and wring it out to clean it. Wring the excess water out when done cleaning.

Clean the waste ink absorber compartment with a tissue or cloth.

Set the waste ink absorber pad on a dry paper towel or clean cloth to dry.

When the pad is dry, place it back into it's compartment in the printer.

Close the top of the printer.

Press and hold the "Resume" button on the printer. Press and hold the "Power" button while holding down "Resume."

Release the "Resume" button. Press "Resume" twice. The indicator light will turn amber followed by green.

Release the "Power" button.

Press the "Resume" button four times

Press the "Power" button. The error code is now reset.

    The screen reads paper jam but there is not any paper jammed


    How did or when did this occur?
    Open all accesses to the printer as if you were changing out printer drums ink etc.
    then close things back.
    pull the power source plug and data line as if the printer came from a box.
    Wait 10 seconds and plug only the power source in and see if the problem exists...
