The error code indicates an issue with the purge unit.
This usually requires a repair\service of the unit.

first of all please turn off the unit....unplug the power cable
now remove the cartridge...manually slide the carriage assembly\ printhead back and forth
also clean the rail against which the assembly slides with a tissue ensuring that there is no ink residue on it
clean the golden contacts of the cartridges and the printhead with a cotton swab dipped in little alcohol
once these steps have been done follow the below steps as well
manually move the printhead to far left
on the far right there is a little white plastic tab that is spring loaded
just check that if its not getting jammed
push the tab towards the front of the printer
once done just turn on and check the status

in case still the issue persists and you get the same error code, then it is an issue with the purge unit.. if the unit is within warranty cover please contact Canon and get the unit serviced...if not, you need to contact a repair tech for physical replacement of the part..however, my personal suggestion is that a repair will not be cost effective

SOURCE: MP600 / Error Code 5010

it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

SOURCE: waste ink pad saturated. EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R360

Replacing the pads is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. If you have little or no experience of stripping down printers it is best left to a proffessional. Contact Epson to find your nearest service centre, but remember to get a quote as it may be more economical to replace the printer. Sometimes the counter can "jump" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility. See these sites:
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
More information about this issue and the "official" Epson resetter is available from the Epson web site, please read this link:

Error Code 0xc1ab0001 What do I do?


Hi,

The "Oxc1ab" series errors can be removed by resetting the printer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer, remove the ink cartridges. When the "Insert ink cartridges" message appears unplug the power cord from the printer. Wait 1 minute (at least), then reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer if it didn't come on by itself. Reinsert the ink, close the unit and print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable to the printer. If this doesn't work, the unit needs service (or replacement if the service call will cost more than a new printer).

Thank you!!

Canon Pixma 210 series has an error code 6000, won't print or scan


Hope this helps
With thanks to a canon tech 
Ok Well again I will repeat this answer with a titch more detail.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel. 
Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

ERROR CODE 3802


This is how I fixed this problem may or may not work for you. I removed the ink!!! Then I removed the ink tray. This is fairly easy if you fell the top of the ink tray you will find a small square that is slightly raised push in on the square while pushing down on the tray this will release the print head. Very carefully clean with 92% alcohol and a q-tip! Don't apply pressure to the print head it will ruin it!!!!!!!
This allow to air dry for at least a 5min. Reinsert then recalibrate the printer! go to printer status and at the very top you will see a rench and hammer icon press it then follow directions!!!!!!
Good luck and god bless

Canon Pixma MP530 All-In-One


I had contacted Canon to resolve my problem.

Through the technician I am informed that the printer has to be sent back for service as one of the 4 pins on print-head print has dropped off leaving only 3pins that is why the error code U043 simply occur which is why replacing another new ink cartridge does not resolve the issue.

I have understand from him that:-
  1. Most of the time when error code flash up, usually are due to the unique feature that Canon has build on the ink cartridges not properly done which resulted to be faulty. Canon's purpose is to prevent the usage of 3rd party ink cartridges. Of course this causes inconvenient to users, but if users are not using 3rd party ink cartridges, once detected is Canon's ink cartridge issue, do contact Canon, they will provide house call for 1 to 1 exchange for the ink cartridge.
  2. Other times if by replacing new ink cartridge the problem for error code still occurs, it might be the pin on the print-head has lost the alighting, this will require for Canon to service to alight back the pin on print-head in order for the printer to operate smoothly again.
  3. If your problem is like mine, inputting the ink cartridge into the wrong slot, well I guess only have to contact Canon as the printer's components used seem to be highly sensitive, by input the wrong slot would have caused scatches on the pin, well it is better to have the ink cartridge remove by the expert than to DIY. (Maybe check with your own nearby technician if by any lucks they can help to rescue your printer, which I hope Canon does not have further enhancement on their printer with other Unique features to prevent users from using 3rd party technical support.)
I hope the above information will help all the troubled Canon printer users as I notice from previous search on this website, there are other users having problem like ink cartridge is only partial used, but error code appear to check ink cartridge, maybe trying to taking out and putting back, it works sometime and problem occurs again, by replace a new ink cartridge will help as the partial used one would be faulty already, and do call up Canon to report the issue and they will exchange a new ink cartridge for the faulty partial used cartridge.

mukuwa, here are a couple of suggestions: How do I clear a Machine Error 41? Description: * Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction of the FAX/DCP/MFC. * Unplug the unit from the power source and then plug it back in again. * If the error message continues to be displayed on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service. 1. Open the Scanner cover by pulling up on the edge of the scanner just above the LCD. 2. After 15 seconds, re-close the Scanner cover. 3. The LCD will then display Have you removed Blck? 1 Yes 2 No. The LCD will display this question for ALL 4 colours (not just the ones replaced). If 1 Yes is selected, the LCD will then display Change to new (colour)? 1 Yes 2 No. Note o "Change to new (colour)?" will only appear if 1 Yes is selected for "Have you removed (colour)?" If 2 NO is selected for the "removed" question, the LCD will then move on to the question for the next colour. o If "1 Yes" is NOT selected for the colour(s) that was replaced, the LCD will return to "Ink Empty". 4. After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning. Once the cleaning is complete, the LCD will return to date and time. If you still have the same problem, contact Brother Customer Service. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/gb/en/faq/faq_top.htm?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=mfc3820cn_eu Let me know what happens.
