A 5c00 error relates to the sensor in the purge unit, which is where the carriage stops on the right hand side of the printer. You may find that the ink has built up in the purge unit and it will need to be washed out in warm water. The sensor in the purge unit will need to be removed before washing the unit. Problem is getting the purge unit out is quite tricky.

When i turn the printer on it tells me error code 5c00


Hi andrew_webb0,

The error code 5C00 means the purge unit is broken. To fix this, you have to bring the printer to a Canon service center and need to replace it with new one.

Hope this helps.

Service error 5C00? what's that?


Service error 5C00 is a purge unit error. The purge unit like a spitoon to the printhead where is stops. There is a sensor in the purge unit; when it is blocked (usually by ink build up), that error is given. The error indicates that the purge unit may be full or at least gunked up. It may be possible to clean the purge unit and sensor to make the error go away. I base this on information learned with experience on another Canon product (Model i560). Hope this helps...

Error code problem


Unplug printer. Press and hold power button for about 15 seconds. 5C00 is a hardware service code. Meaning there is an EEPROM error on the printer systemboard. Which may need to be replacing by a certified techinican.
