Error 5400 - Internal temperature error

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

I've replaced all ink cartridges but the printer is only printing color and no black please help

the black is plugged in the printhead. take it out, and to the sink. run hot water thru the head. rinse it thoroughly. even put the nozzles up to the sink nozzle and force water thru it. when it decided to unplug you will get a bunch of black ink for a second or two. then take the head and shake it out and if possible blow it out with compressed air. get it dry then take a pencil eraser to the contact points on the back of the printhead to clean them. reinstall your printer and let it cycle to charge the printhead. try to print. if not good results try one more clean and if still no black, go back to the sindk and try again. repeat this a couple of times, if it doesn't work, let it sit in really hot water for a while then try to flush it out again. make sure it is dry when you put it back into the printer. try to print again. do use good inks to do this. empty ones won't work.

Error code 5400

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

Cant get printer to print

I know this is going to sound odd, but did you install a new cartridge? My son worked on his for a while after putting in a new cartridge and couldn't get it to print. His friend, who is very good with computers and all helped, and to no avail they couldn't get it to work.
The printer at that time was very new, so we didn't think that could the problem...they were missing something. As it was, they were so intent on installing and setting it all up, they put the cartridges in without removing the tape that is placed over the end of the cartridge after being manufactured. Once they realized and removed both tapes, everything worked out fine.
It could be something that simple...if you were in a hurry. And, yes, I know it sounds impossible, but I KNOW THAT THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED so it could happen again. Good luck.

My print is Canon MX320. I just changed a new ink, but the error 5200 occured. Do you know what happened? Thanks.

Error 5200 indicates that the print head temperature has exceeded the specified value. Turn off the printer and then turn on, if error still persist replace ink cartridge or print head.

A printer error has occurred. turn off the printer, then press On button to turn on. see your documentation. ( i did that and the same thing comes up again)

Hi, I solved this issue when this happened to my Epson Stylus NX515. I had this issue, after I experienced a paper jam. Removed the paper, for sure, then I turned Off/On the printer, but didn't help. It didn't allow me to reset the settings, either. However, I manually moved the ink cartridge container from right to left, since that area is always hidden by the cartridge container. Bingo. I found a small object there, preventing the cartridge container to go back to the original location when the printer initializes when it turned on.
