Re: Error message

If it really is a "logic board" problem, then it's time to responsibly recycle the printer, and to purchase a brand-new printer; hopefully, you can find one that uses the same ink-cartridges as your current printer.

A "pro" would charge you $50 to $100 to _look_ at it, with _no_ guarantee of being able to fix it; instead, invest that money in the new printer, which you _know_ will work.

Hi I recently had an error on my printer 5 blinks of the error light. I established from the internet that it was a print head failure. So I purchased a QY6-0075 to replace the original QY6-0067 print head...

Oh dear you have suffered what is probably the worst that can happen to this machine. When your original print head failed it took out the logic board with it. They should have been replaced as a pair at the same time. thats what we (canon engineers) do. Fortunately the logic board is not to expensive . The logic board part number is QM3-2738.

Good luck.

PS. I take no responsibilty if the logic board does not cure as although the print head works in another machine it may not in this one. Srri

Canon Pixma Mp258 Error Code and Possible Solution

P02 (Carriage error)
1.Make sure no foreign material stuck to the print head railway.
2.Clean and check the print head encoder strip cable (timing **** film or encoder strip is a white line on the back of the box set of ink lines may be missing or mess up the ink.P03 (Line feed error): an error in transmission line entering the line feed (LF) is a signal telling the printer to move to another line or a whole new line that would not otherwise have reached the end of the line.
1.Check wire print head position (timing **** disk film) on the side of the machine.
2.Check PCB logic board.
P05 (ASF sensor error) sensor for paper feed error.
1.Try to replace the following:
•ASF / PE sensor unit.
•Drive unit.
•PCB logic board.
P06 (Internal temperature error): caused by abnormal heat inside the printer.
P07 (Ink absorber full): the Ink Wastepad (sponge) inside the printer is full
1.Replace the wastepad inside the printer or install waste ink bin outside the printer
2.then Reset counter protection.
P08 (Print head temperature rise error): caused by thermal print head temperature exceeds a threshold.
1.Replace the new cartridge print head and / or change a new logic board.
P09 (EEPROM error): caused by corrupted or defective EEPROM chips of the printer.
1.Replace the logic board.
P15 (USB VBUS over current): caused by too much current, try removing the USB cable and then plugin again, if solve the error, try to replace with a new USB cable. If the error still exist replace the logic board.
P20 (Other hardware error): The failure of other hardware.
1.Try to replace the logic board.
P22 (Scanner error): a scanner malfunction.
1.try to change the scanner unit or change a the logic board.
E13 or E16: Ink has run out

1.Pressing the Stop / Reset button for 5 to 8 seconds until the led screen display number 1.

I received a message on my printer. it reads Ink systm has failed. unable to copy receive faxes or print. Error 0xc19a0035. What does it mean and how can i remedy it.

You likely have a few failed capacitors on your printer's logic board. I have a HP C6180 all in one printer that started displaying this exact message. Powering off then on again clears the error and you can operate as normal for a few minutes to hours until the error re-appears. I suspect your printer will eventually power off then on by iteslf every 15 seconds or so, making the printer unusable. Take the logic board cover off (on the C6180 is is on the right end of the printer), remove the logic board and look for failed capacitors (they will be puffed on the top (see image). If this is the case, you will have to have them replaced (easily done with a soldering pen). The replacementparts are inexpensive (less than $1.00.

I'm getting a message all of a sudden that "the type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head." I have not doen anything to the printer to change the print head that has been working...

It means the print head temperature is too high. The only was to resolve this error is either replace the print head or replace the logic board. The print head is available, part number QY6-0061 but you will struggle to find a logic board. The only other thing you can try is resetting the EEPROM on the logic board, this sometimes clears the error. A service manual will show you how to do this:

Want to know the meaning of service error 5200 on

turn off printer and unplug power cord and usb or parallel/usb cables .
wait for 15minutes and connect all cables back on then turn power on.
it should work if it does not work then seems you have problem with
head/logic board so that needs to be replaced.
if thats case better to see printer Tech.

thank you,

Canon Pixma ip3000 flashing amber 6 times

If the 6 flashes are accompanied by an on screen message #5400, this is a "Service Call Error" code.

This code indicates the following;
Internal temperature error [5400]
The solution to this is the following part replacementl
- Logic board ***'y (QM2-1548) *1

*1: Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or
more, also replace the bottom case unit (QM2-1205) or the ink absorbers (QC1-4222 / 4223 / 4224 / 4263 / 4264 / 4864 / 4221 / 4257) when replacing the
logic board ***'y.

I received an error message reading: SERVICE REQ. EROOO3. I can't print any more and need to finish a manuscript today.

The message indicates a controller or print engine error has been detected. It's the internal electronic/logic board failing.

If power cycling or turning it OFF/ON does notclear the error message, service is required as the logic board needsreplacement.

here's a link for certified service center for your product.

Printer keeps on jamming paper

Dear all,
I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
  • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
  • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
Corrective action:
  • Remove the material from paper path
  • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
  • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.
