    How did you clean that? I see that the ink is actually spilled a bit, where the cartriges are, but basic leaning doesn't help. I'm getting the error again.

I had a similar problem. I replaced all the ink cartridges and cleaned the printer.  I checked the nozzles to be sure that they were clean and cleaned the area where the cartridges set.  It took a little while but my printer is working again.  Mine makes a clicking sound after you push the copy button but still pulls the paper through.  Does yours pull the paper through at all?

Service error 5c10

This error is a message indicating print head/ink failure on the printer.
I would try the following 2 things:
1. replace the ink cartridges/print heads. test to see if the problem is fixed.
2. If this does not solve the issue, you may need to either send it to the manufacturer for repairs (if under warranty), send it to a local repair person to service- or look for a new printer to buy (which may actually save you money).

Error message : service error 5c10 on a canon

You can try and clear the error by holding down the power button and waiting for it to turn off then wait 30 seconds and turn it back on. {you might need to unplug it to get it to turn off}


Hold down the stop/reset and then push the power button while the printer is on. The printer should shut off then wait 30 seconds and then hold the stop/reset again and push the power button and the printer should turn on with the error cleared.
