Error 5b00


Hello, your error is about the ink absorber.

"Ink absorber full Japan:
[5B00]
Others:
[5B01]
P07 The ink absorber
becomes full.
Replace the ink absorber (ink absorber kit), and
reset the ink absorber counter."

This is the way to enter service mode:
"Start the printer in the service mode.
i. With the machine power turned off, while pressing the Stop/Reset button, press and hold
the ON button. (DO NOT release the buttons).
ii. When the Power LED lights in green, while holding the ON button, release the Stop/Reset
button. (DO NOT release the ON button.)
iii. While holding the ON button, press the Stop/Reset button 5 times, and then release both
the ON and Stop/Reset buttons. (Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the Alarm
and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm
LED.)
iv. When the Power LED lights in green, the machine is ready for the service mode operation
and "0" is displayed on the 7-segment LCD.
2) Start the Service Tool on the connected computer.
i. When a button is clicked in the Service Tool dialog box, that function is performed. During
operation of the selected function, all the Service Tool buttons are dimmed and inactive.
ii When the operation is completed, "A function was finished." is displayed, and another
function can be selected.
iii If a non-supported function is selected, "Error!" is displayed. Click OK in the error message
dialog box to exit the error."

You can use the service tool to reset this error after you have enter service mode.

Error 5b00 how do i fix it


You will have to give the machine to a canon agent as the main ink absorber if full. the machine has to be taken apart for new absorbers to be fitted. It a very messy job and will take a canon trained engineer about an hour to disassemble it. Also the platen ink absorber should be changed too. then finally the software ink absorbers counters will need resetting.

My Canon MP180 printer/scanner/copier is notifying me that the ink absorber is almost full. What is an ink absorber and what should I do to replace it? I live in Ireland. Err 5B00


The ink absorber is a small tank that holds the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans its nozzles. Eventually that bottle will fill with ink and if not replaced will result in a terrible, sticky mess all inside your printer and the desk on which it sits.

I suggest contacting a local authorized repair facility for Canon or Customer Service for Canon and see if you can purchase a new absorber bottle without having to take the printer into the shop.

Waste tank absorber is almost full ~ message


I've taken this from my manual.
This error message indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used
during FINE Cartridge cleaning, for example.
You can continue printing by selecting Continue*1
on the display on your camera.
However, because printing is disabled once
the ink absorber becomes completely full
and until the ink absorber is replaced, you
are recommended to contact a Canon
service representative as early as possible.
*1 To resume printing, you can press
[OK] (MP180) / [Black] or [Color] (MP160) on
the machine instead of selecting [Continue].
