SOURCE: problem with my Canon Pixma MP500

Try a hard reset first: Unplug the printer from power source and PC, wait about 5 minutes and replug. Should the issue recur, then the cover sensor is probably faulty. That is the reason you are getting this error repeatedly. The only solution is to send the printer in for servicing and get the sensor repaired/replaced.

In any case, here are the steps to close the inner cover:

1. Press the Open Button (1) to open the Paper Output Tray (2).

2. Raise the Scanning Unit until it stops.

3. Close the Inner Cover

4. Now close the Scanning Unit.

You can also try reinstalling the printer software along with any patches, updates, etc from the Canon website. Make sure you uninstall the existing software first though..

If neither works, then its time to take the printer in for servicing. You could try to contact them by phone first:

  • Toll-free live technical support** Monday through Friday 10:00 AM ET to 10:00 PM ET (excluding holidays) at 1-800-828-4040
  • The location of the ASF nearest you for carry-in service at 1-800-828-4040
  • Toll-free TDD Support Line for the Hearing Impaired Monday - Saturday (excluding holidays) at 1-866-251-3752
  • Technical Support for Customers in Canada at 1-800-OK-CANON
Hope that helps!

I had the exact same problem with my brand new MP610, and I finally just turned it off and back on. That appears to have worked.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma ip3000 flashing amber 6 times

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 [5400]
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.]

Good luck!!!

How do I fix error code 1403 mg5420?


Try removing cartridge, turning printer off/on and installing the cartridge back in. Try this couple of times and if it doesn't work, replace the cartridge.1403 indicates 'not recognised' cartridge and there is no way to reset this condition.

You may have accidentally installed updated firmware in your printer, so it doesn't recognize the carts anymore. You may have to "reset" the chips on your carts.
If resetting the carts doesn't help, I'd suggest contacting the place you got the refillable carts.

I have a Canon Pixma MG5420. I would like to print index cards using the upper cassette but I can only get the printer to print from that cassette using photo printing software. Otherwise I can't access...


Try opening control panel>devices&printers. Set the paper feed to the upper feed as permanent. Then on printer itself make sure that paper type, size and feed is where you want it.

I have a canon mg5420 with a paper jam code 1311 but no paper in any the locations I check?


If all else fails try this:
(at your own risk)
1. Turn on the printer
2. Open the rear cover and remove the paper feeder there
3. Insert a sheet of paper from the rear (in the slot at where the paper feeder just was.
4. turn off the printer
The printers rolls will spin as it shuts down and it will pull in the paper, hopefully clearing the paper sensor.

This worked for my MG5420
