Question about Canon MP520 All-In-One InkJet Photo Printer
Cannon have come back with"check there are no objects inside printer" but how can there be if this is a new machine? The problem is because the machine cannot read the ink.But i have installed them as stated.
5700 is a ASF cam error most likely. Here the Canon proceedure for fixing it!
DESCRIPTION: 5 Alternating Blinks (SFP) / ##356 (MFP) - ASF Cam Sensor Error
SOLUTION(S): Adjust the Screws & Main Case Unit
Movement (i.e. from shipping) may cause the plastic guide to move away from the chassis. When this
occurs, the gears cannot rotate properly causing a grinding noise and 5 alternating blinks (SFP) or ##356
(MFP) - ASF Cam Sensor Error.
Step 1: Remove the Left and Right Covers and the Main Case Unit (main cover).
Step 2: Remove the 4 mounting screws from the Chassis.
Step 3: Remove the Main Unit from the Bottom Case.
Step 4: Turn the Main Unit over (upside down) and place on work surface.
Step 5: Inspect the ASF section of the Main Unit for a gap between the white plastic guide and the Chassis.
Note: The size of the gap varies. Even if the gap is not visible, complete the steps
Step 6: Disconnect the appropriate cables and remove the Logic Board from the Chassis.
Step 7: Loosen (do not remove) the 4 mounting screws (the mounting screws can be found behind the
logic board) on the Chassis.
Step 8: Re-seat the white plastic guide so it sits flush against the Chassis. The tip of the white plastic
guide should sit slightly inside the
mounting screw hole. When seated correctly, the gap will no longer be present.
Step 9: Tighten the 4 mounting screws without
causing the plastic guide to shift.
Step 10: Reassemble the printer and retest.
hope this helps

Chances are there is still some packaging strip or materials left inside your printer, nor any obstruction in the paper path, or the sensor device isnt tripped off
