Question about Canon PIXMA MP170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Code error 5800 has come up and printer will no longer work

I have never come across this with any other printer previously owned, why should this rend this printer inoperative? And how can this be solved quickly without having to have a Canon technician look at it?
Thanks in anticipation.

Error 5B00 tells you that the ink absorber is full and needs changing. Canon makes this shut down printing so that ink doesn't leak on your furniture and blame them. You can change the absorbers but you need access to diagnostic functions to reset the count and clear the error code.

This is an ink overuse error. It may read 5B00 and not 5800.

Hi there I would like my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone to ring longer before it goes to voicemail. How do I change it? Thanks in advance


I also have Nokia 5800 XM. From my own experience, the time from the beginning of incoming call until voice mail is provider setting so we can't change it manually. I think you can just increase your ringing tones so you can notice every incoming call faster.

If this helpful, RATE please !

I am getting an 5800 error


Ink Absorber Replacement OptionsThis printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible. Press the <OK> button to release the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk
