Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My linear encoder went bad so I purchased a new one and had directions set on how to install and reset up the linear encoder. The installation was a success but when do the setup trying to get into Service Mode it's a disaster. I've done just as the directions said "unload media then, turn on the sub power while pressing left arrow, down arrow, and right arrow all at the same time." My printer then tells me, "Printer in protected mode." What does this mean and how can I get it into service mode?? Help! Because I'm still using my printer. It prints like new again but it will shoot up service code errors like it did before installing the new encoder. I need help someone please. Thanks all!

SOURCE: service error 5100
may be the driver are not installed correctly ... just try reinstalling the drivers ... and make a check that you have inserted the ink cartilage or not ...
if not insert it and then give try ... it may work ..
if problem persists then call the service rep ...

Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error massages like 6502 or other types of error message to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.
When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is extinguished.
First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both are held down at same time
When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button go.
Then press resume button four times, power button should be released before doing this.
Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15 seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.
Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been disabled, the low ink warnings are showing again and they will have to be disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be useful if you need some warranty work done on your
printer after the chips had been disabled.

Problem for Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet
The waste ink is in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out,
It may be all screwed down so you need to open all up or get a shop to do it for you.
It not an easy job but maybe you are handy with a screwdriver, it can be messy job.
But after this, you will have to reset the waist ink counter or it will still not work,
But but but but you can always try this to reset it first and clean it out again some time.
Canon Reset waste ink counter

2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
