I have a Pixma MP510 with error code 5C00. When I lift (Open) the printer the ink tanks do not return to centre for inspection. It has occured for first time to day. Switched the printer on and off and...

That's a jammed purge unit issue (search for 5C00 or purge in that link.) That is, the degunker got gunky!

"purge sensor error which means that something is jammed or broken in the purge unit. Most of the time all it is are the wiper blades that clean the bottom of the printhead get stuck in the extended forward position. Gently press on them and see it they will release. Press down on the two ink pads and they should move down at least 1/4" with very little force.

Other than this, you may have to take the printer apart and examine the purge gear very close. It could also be just a jammed piece of paper. I have had people find all kind of things dropped in there, such as paper clips, staples, cigarette butts, etc."

Error message 5C00 on screen, machine wont print or copy after cartridge fill, its a pixma mp 550 in spain looks like the 640.

Error 5c00 is classified as a purge unit error. The purge unit is a device in the printer that refreshes and cleans the ink cartridges. This error message occurs when the printer's purge unit is not able to complete its cycle fully.

Several issues can prevent the purge unit from cycling completely. Paper or debris may be caught in the purge unit or it may have become stuck out of place.

How to fix it:
1) Turn the printer on and open the cover.
2) When the carriage has moved to the center of the printer, disconnect the power by removing the power plug from the back.
3) You should now be able to slide the carriage gently to the left, which will give you access to the purge unit located on the right side of the printer.
4) Inspect the unit for any jammed debris or stuck pieces. Using a paper towel, gently move any jammed pieces back into place.

It says "Check printer" error message "6A00".

paper path jam.
Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.
Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Error code says 5c00 on my canon pixma mp500 printer. cant find my manual to figure out what the code means

The error code 5c00 usually means that there is a paper jam or paper path restriction.
If the path is not restricted, the printer will need servicing.

5c00 error

Error 5C00 is Purge Cam Sensor error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need repairing.

Error code 5C00, Canon Selphy DS810

It means that the purge assembly, thats the cleaning unit where the printhead parks when off on the right, is jammed and cannot move.Look for paper or foreign material stopping it from moving. Sometimes the squeegee unit needs to be pushed back if the pads get stuck under it...

Cannon PIXMA MP520 Problem: Error code

I had this problem with the ink carriage jammed at the left hand side of the printer. I operated the lever in a hole on the top left hand side and eased the carriage along to the middle and pushed it back onto it's runners. All OK now.
