Hi affrench,

Your problem in all likelyhood is print head temperature. The temperature at your print heads has exceeding the allowable parameters set forth by your software and manufacturer. If your printer is under heavy use loads this could be why you are getting this error code. Take it easy on the old boy, after all its only a machine, lol. I hope this helped.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

Error 5200 pertains to a faulty printhead. This happens when the printhead is overheating. What you need to do is have it replaced on the Canon service center.

I have a canon MP550 which has thrown up the error 6C10. I have tried the solutions suggested at FixYa, but to no avail. My printer's only 6 months old. Any suggestions? Regards Jan


It is my pleasure to guide you.


I have done some extensive research on your 'error 6C10'.


I have looked at the following:

I realize that the '6C00' error is not exactly your but the manual does not have the 6C10. You can download that at the above link.


I also look at the http://www.retrevo.com/support/Canon-MP500-Multifunction-Printers-manual/id/259bh640/t/2/ Canon Pixma MP500 Users Guide Manual. There are several codes but not the 6C10. You can download this above as well.
Good luck and please post back that you are successful, giving thumbs up, or if I can be more helpful.

Canon pixma all in one mp500 error code 6A00


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.

Error code 5010


Canon only lists three 4-digit error codes for the MP500: 1700, 1851, and 1856. After much research and finding many other MP500 owners getting this same strange code, I have come to conclude that it's the code of DEATH. Sometimes you may get strange codes if using compatible ink cartridges. Unless you can get the printer to reset and clear, the only other thing to try is to go back to the Canon driver download page and reload the correct driver: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=11995

Issue: ERROR LCD: Error Code 5200
Solution: Press ON/OFF switch and wait a few minutes before powering back on the device

Reset the device when it is not functioning properly. If the device is not functioning properly or to clear an error, power off the printer and power it back on. Before powering back on the printer, wait five to ten minutes.
  1. On the operator panel, press the <ON/OFF> button. (The display will go blank.)

    Note: On rare occasions, it may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.

  2. Wait approximately five to ten minutes and then press the <ON/OFF> button again.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.
