I continue to get a (check printer error 5110) alert. I have turned off he printer and then back on but a yellow alarm light keeps coming on can you please help me get rid of this error! karen...

Error 5110 means Carriage lift mechanism error. This is a Canon-specific error code for its printers. Aside from this error, usually there's a sequence of alternate blinking in orange and green of the LED light(alternating cycle of green and orange lights x 11)
Its one of the Service Call Errors which means a part of the printer is missing or broken, and needs to replaced or repaired by a Canon Authorized technician.
Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty):
- PR lift shaft
- Sheet feed unit
- Logic board
- Carriage lift sensor unit
Disclaimer:Things you can do if you know how to work with printers(Advanced), if this printer is under warranty and/or this will be the first time that you're gonna work/ troubleshoot this printer and/or you definitely have a hard time understanding these terms I've mentioned better call an Authorized Canon printer technician
  • If you know a lot about printers you can take the printer apart and see whether you can cycle/roll the wheels at the purge unit and the greater wheel which lifts the carriage unit freely. These wheels are behind the main board at the right side, so you have to dismount all the cables and the main board with its cage at the bottom screws.

Hope this info helps!

Canon ip4300 color ink empty but I only want black

No, Canon does not have this facility. Also mostly greyscale is not light black but rather a mixcture of the 3 primary colours. You should have a reset/resume button on the printer - hold this in for a slow 5 seconds to de-activate ink warnings per cartridge that is giving alarms. Proceed carefully and only print text that is black so that the colour printheads do not burn out.

Hi there,

A possible paper jam has happen on the unit. Did you have an paper jam error before you have this problem?

You must clear any paper jam on the unit, check the unit for any stuck paper or object or check if there was misaligned parts inside.

Let me know for any clarifications.

I get an error code 6A00 and both lights are flashing on my Canon Pixma ip4300 printer

6A00 means the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is stuck or jammed. Look to the right with a flashlight when the printhead is out of the way and look for paper scraps, or anything that doesn't belong.

This iP4300 Canon printer has never worked even once and I bought it in 2007. Canon just sent me a replacement yellow ink cartridge as the light has been off. When I go to try and print the test page, I...

Probably a shop repair... There's a small switch on that door that goes bad, I've had to replace several. The switch is hidden on the right hand side and can barely be seen thru an opening in the front. You have to remove the top cover to replace it. A cheap part, but still a nuissance.

There's a small white light below the power light that's flashin.

In this case you may have to clear the memory of the printer or set the printer to default.
