Can I fit new purge unit to my canon ip90 or does it need to go into the shop? The printer is coming up with a 5C00 errror and I have tried cleaning the pad at the right hand side, changing the cartridges for new Canon ones, checking for bits of paper etc etc and it is still not working!I am a complete novice but willing to have a go!

Re: Can I fit new purge unit to my canon ip90 or does
Canon doesnt sell that purge unit alone because it's too hard to change even for a shop tech. The only option is to replace the entire print engine. QM2-2020-000, and the cost is near the cost of a new printer...

This means that you have a purge unit error. That's the cleaning station on the right where the printhead parks.The error you are getting is telling you that the purge unit is not giving the correct timing signal as it rotates inside 360 degrees. Therefore, something is either broken or jammed inside. If you had a paper jam and tried to forcefully pull it out, you could have pulled the internal gears out of alignment.
You will need to do some maneuvers to try to release the cartridge from its parking position. Please do not force anything. Just take it to a shop if it's hard to move.
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.
With this model there are several possibilities, There's a firmware update that a Canon shop has to install that helps Black cleaning, when the purge assembly goes out you have to replace the entire print engine, about $180.00. You may just need a new printhead which will run around $60.00 The printhead is QY6-0052-000
That's a purge unit error, for some reason the purge unit is not cycling properly. That's the cleaning station on the right where the printhead parks. Check for any paper scraps in that area, if the printhead is stuck on the right and doesn't come out, you shouldn't force it, just take it to a shop before you cause more damage.
4 blinks is a purge unit error, that's the device that the printhead parks on on the right. Could be just a paper scrap inside, or the gears are worn out. The replacement includes the entire print engine and costs more than a new printer to replace.
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
it could be a problem with your print head in the printer or the purge unit. printer head problem u can fix your self by ordering a new print head from your canon printer supplier. as for the purged unit u need to have the printer looked at by a canon service agent
