With the Canon, check that the ink cartridges are fitted properly. They have to go under the lip op plastic, before being pushed into place.

Yep, I had one ink cartridge that had popped up and the printer was unable to go through it's startup routine.

Firmly pressed all the ink cartridges down until I heard one click.

Then it started.

Try switching printer off then unplugging the power for 15 or so minutes. If that doesn't work and same error pops up when you turn printer back on, contact Canon.

good luck

Hello there,
The C000 error is cause by the ink cartridge not being seated properly. Here are some instructions from Canon on how to resolve it. If this doesnt work, try to replace your ink cartridge. If still you are having issues, it might be that the ink cartridge cradle in the printer is faulty. I hope this helps! Thumbs up are much appreciated.

I found a solution if you get an error code. I just bought a canon mp620 tonight from Best buy. I followed it to the letter as far as putting the ink in. Closed the lid and it made some God awful noise. The code was C000. You need to COMPLETELY push the ink tanks down underneath their respected sticker letters. Goto look under support. Type in your model number and look under FAQ'S. I also had the error 5100 code. It explains with pictures and instructions what to do. Hope it helps anyone with trouble with the error code c000 and 5100
