There is a button that looks like a triangle inside a circle. Hold this down for 5 seconds.
Hope this helps.

NO. This would void the warranty, return the unit for exchange. Do not try to service this unit as they will charge you the warranty cost. Besides, you get a brand new unit for one that is 6 months old. We call that free updating.

Canon printer Pixma MP170 Alarm light flashing with code 5B00 Can not locate manual, what is the problem?


5b00 means the ink absorber is full. It needs to be replaced and the counter reset thru service mode.
QY5-0149-000 is the part number around $15.00 for the set. Difficult to change as the absorbers cover the whole bottom of the printer.

Hi guys, Error code 5B00 indicates absorber full error. To fix this problem you need to reset waste absorber counter and replace waste ink absorber. Unfortunately you don't write the printer model so I cannot write reset procedure here.
