Canon BJC5500 in Win98SE: "Check Printer" Fails To Resolve

This Canon Multifunction Printer has been a jewel for over 10 years. Yesterday, 12 JUN 07, when I went to print a Office - Word 2000 - document, with 1 "ClipArt" image, I received the error: "Printhead Cooling", then the !!STOP!! [ALARM] light started a never-ending flashing. I have unplugged this unit; unplugged the bi-directional Printer Cable; cleaned the contacts on the Printer cartridge, as well as the contact on the BJC5500 itself; lubricated the "rails" that the printer cartridge uses, with Radio Shack's "Multi-Purpose Lube Gel"; Installed the latest printer driver(s); Insured that the BIOS settings for this printer matched those in the Windows 98SE Program Manager "Properities"; unplugged the printer, for ten (10) minutes, as well as disconnected the printer's data cable for ten (10) minutes as well. Short of "buying, online" the Printer's Service Manual, I have tried everything I know possible, including "completely uninstalling" the printer, both in the Win98SE enviroment, as well as in the Registry.

My printer ESP5210 is showing error codes 3501,3606,3507. What can i do to fix this

To resolve this error, close the printer access door. The printer will not operate while the door/cover is open.

  1. Turn off the power (press the On/Off button on the printer).
  2. Unplug the printer power cord from the back of the printer.
  3. Wait approximately 30 seconds.
  4. Plug the printer power cord into the back of the printer.
  5. Turn on the power to the printer.
