5C00 error on Canon iP90 printer

I read the other posts re the 5C00 error, and want to add a twist: when I power up the printer, it kicks out two sheets of paper before it goes into its blink mode. When it blinks, it alternates 4X between orange and grenn, and then pauses on green for about 2-3 seconds, before alternating again. Pls help, thanks.

The alternate flashing of orange and green indicates a service call error, something that needs to be taken into a canon authorized service facility for repair. 4 alternate blinking of these lights indicates a problem with the purge unit, most likely requiring replacement.

I have a canon ip90, I have an error code of 5C00. How do I fix this?


Hello thanks for using Fixya
5C00 is a purge unit error
This error code tells that the purge unit did not complete a good power on cycle and the cam is not in the correct position.In typical words that means the purge unit is stuck extended due to accumulation of a lot of dried up ink.
To solve it follow this
  • Open the cover and when the head comes to the center, pull the power cord.
  • Once that power is off you can now move the carriage to the far left so it is out of the way.
  • Now use a paper towel and gently blot all the excess ink off of the ink Pads and press them down. If the Wiper blade is extended, clean it and it should snap back in position.
  • If it is still stuck, try spraying the area with Windex but don't get any on anything except the pads.
If you have any fear to do this then best option is to take it back where you purchased it or contact Canon service center about the error code. They will surely solve it.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

I am getting an error message for my Pixma iP90 Printer and it is 5C00 can you help


5C00 is a purge unit error, the purge is the unit that cleans the printhead on the right hand side. If the printhead will come out of the right side, you will need to check for paper scraps caught in there, If stuck on the right you will need a shop to check it out for you so you don't break anything. You need to remove covers and printhead and check under the printhead in the purge unit.

Canon iP90 error 5C00


5C00 is a purge unit error, thats the cleaning unit on the right where the printhead parks. Look inside with a flashlight, if nothing is blocking it's operation, you willl need a new print engine, qm2-2020-000 around $150.00

Canon IP90 Service error 5C00


BCI - 15 is not the same as the BCI -16. The look and feel the same, but the ink is handled differently by the printer - so while, in theory you could use them interchangable, the output would be terrible... Canon set it so that you can only use a BCI 16 in an IP90.

Buy a BCI - 16 cart and try that.

Canon pixma ip90 printer


if your printer is flashing 4 orange and then back to green repeatedly - i found a solution to it for my ip90v - i opened the printer and checked the right hand side cogs - carefully turn them and you may see that some stray paper jam debris is blocking the cleaning unit from returning to its home in the bottom front of the printer - carefully remove it and replace the casing - turn on and with any luck you will have a dully functioning ip90 like i did.

Hope it helps some others out

Error 5C00 on Canon iP90


i took out both printer cartriges then put them back in. there was a window that asks if you replaced the cartriges; click yes then click on the black and color boxes indicating you replaced (re-inserted) both cartriges. for me the light stopped blinking (previously, it was blinking orange 4 times). next i tried to print but only yellow and black appeared. i then cleaned the head 2 times.

to clean:
-go to control panel
-click on printers
-click on printers and faxes
-find your printer, right click on it
-click properties
-find the maintenance tab
-click cleaning
(clean a couple of times if needed)

hopefully it works...
