Question about Canon PIXMA MX860 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Canon MX860 had an error code of C002 after a grinding noise occurred when I left the top up for a few minutes after removing an ink cartridge. Then after turning power on and off a few times, an error code of C000 appeared. Then after turning power on and off while top was up the grinding noise occurred again when the print cartridge moved to the left and error code 5100 appeared.

OK. It sounds like there's something on the carriage bar restricting the movement of the ink carrier. Perhaps some ink got on the bar.
Try taking a clean lintfree rag dampened with rubbing alcohol and clean the bar. This may have to be repeated a number of times to get the foreign matter off the bar and the ink carriage.
Let me know if this helps. iF it does not we can try something else.
Thanks.

5100 is a Carriage Home Position Error.
try cleaning the plastic strip that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated.

Yes, 5100 means the carriage is not moving back and forth properly or there is grease on the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. Grease spots make it lose count and slam into the side and grind gears. You need to clean the strip with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, but very carefully, not too much pressure on the strip.

Canon MX 892 = Printer error has occurred. Turn off power than turn back on. If problem persists see the manual.


The grinding noise would be a clue that something needs to be put right before the reset would work!

Open the cover and check the paper has not jammed or cartridge has not been placed correctly.......remove cartridge and replace! Then turn off power and back on again!

Canon mp250 series can i print only in black and white i ran out of color ink.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Cant ge the print cartridges out of my Canon MP830


[6A00] or Light blinking 12 times = AP position error. It's mean there is an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You may need to replace Sheet feed unit, logic board or purge unit. And also please use original Canon cartridges to solve your problem too. Thank you

My Canon printer MX860 will get half low on ink and freeze up with error U163 telling you to replace the ink cartridge. Is there a way to override this error so you can use the remaing ink?


This just happened with my MX860. I pushed the "Stop" button on the far right of the control panel and held until it beeped. Appears to do some kind of a reset. After that, the U163 error was cleared and it printed again. Don't know how long it will go before that happens again but it is working for now. Hope this helps.

Receive message 345 and alarm which prevents operation.


Other Canon models "may" be repaired with these instructions also, for example MP370, MP390, etc. Try with your own risk.


Symptoms:
-Grinding noise (very loud)
-Flashes error code ##345

Error code ##345 = "BJ cartridge head cleaning error" -reasons for this are:
-Foreign material or dried ink in head cleaning unit (also known as "purge unit") , or waste ink pump jammed up. Make sure waste ink pump rotates freely, after cleaning. Clean the waste pump-hose too! Waste ink pump is located under head cleaning system.

Short solution:
1.Take apart and wash the ink clogged mechanical parts. Use hot water.
2. Reset waste ink counter

purge unit: HM1-0723-000

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.
