I'm not sure how this happened but all I know is that my printer was barely new. First I tried to turn it off and on again but that didn't work. I tried it on other pc's and the error was there again. Thank you

Here are a list of error codes that you may come across on a Canon printer. If a part is faulty and you are unable to repair yourself, then contact the provider or local service centre. Error B200 View information. Error 306 View solution. Error 5011Get the printer repaired by the provider or manufacturer. Error 5100An error occurred in the carriage encoder signal.
Check for any obstructions of the carriage's movement.
Error 5200 The print head is overheating. Turn the printer off to allow it to cool down and turn it on again but seek repair if the problem persists. Error 5400 The internal temperature is not what it should be. Error 5700 The sheet feeder needs to be replaced. It can be that the gears in the printer and/or sensor have become faulty. Error 6000 An error occurred in the LF encoder signal. Can be the result of a deep paper jam with pins, paper or other miscellaneous objects stuck in there. Error 6A00 The cartridge mechanisim is jammed. Error 6A80 View solution. Error 6C10 Reset the ink absorber.
This error related to the internal temperature being out of normal range. If the printer has been used for high volume printing recently then simply unplug it and let it cool down.
If this does not help then replacing the printer is much cheaper than a repair job!.
I hope this helps
5400 is a temperature error that points to a new logic pcb, but the other day I had one that was caused by a bad printhead. If you can get it out, try powering up without the printhead installed, if it's bad, the error will change to no printhead and you can just pick up a new one.
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 
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. [See Section 3-3. Adjustment / Settings, (6) Service mode, for details.]
