SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: I get Service error 5C00 for my Cannon i80

Canon USA has a down loadable file for the manual.

Here is the link.

Here is what is being said of this error on the forums:

Fixing this error is much easier as it looks. Unplug the printer completely. Move the ink cartridge cradle gently to the left. Over to the right at it's usual resting place you will see a small pad about 1cm square. This pad and the area around should be covered with ink. Get a microfibre cloth and press down on this pad - it's not fixed so should come away with the cloth, otherwise use tweezers gently. Squeeze the pad several times between your thumb and forefinger while inside the microfibre cloth to remove ink build up. Then when not much ink comes out on the cloth, clean the area in the printer around the pad so that looks free from ink too. Then position the pad back in place, move the cradle back into position, plug in and switch on - should work fine now. But it's worth checking for any paper caught near the ink pad

SOURCE: Canon printer ip90V is showing Error 5C00

Hi,
A 5c00 error relates to the sensor in the purge unit, which is where the carriage stops on the right hand side of the printer. You may find that the ink has built up in the purge unit and it will need to be washed out in warm water. The sensor in the purge unit will need to be removed before washing the unit. Problem is getting the purge unit out is quite tricky.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My cannon BJC-2100 series gives me error 5C00 when trying to print


The error you are getting refers to the cartridge movement. You need to open the printer so you can see the cartrige and the track it rides on. Make sure that the cartriges can move freely with no obstructions. If the cartridges can move freely and there is nothing blocking the path this will require a pro. If nothing is stopping the movement than another component went out that controls the movement of the heads.

When I looked up the error online it says this is a cleanig error and just to Make sure no obstructions are blocking the cartridge movement, if not needs service.

Printer problem


I found a small plastic "clip" of the type that covers the print-head of a cartridge in the mechanism where the printhead/inkcartridge is mounted. I have no idea where it came from nor how long it had been in there but the printer works OK after I removed it.

Go to this link. Select Windows XP in the Select OS box. Download the driver and follow instructions to install the driver. Do not connect or turn on the printer until the installation program tells you to do so.
