Maybe this is the ink waste absorbant?

Canon printer S200SPx error code 5600

The user manual does not talk about specific error codes. From other forum I belong to, it looks like it may be a bad printhead. If that is it, Canon says to call support. I suspect the cost of a new printhead would be more than the printer is worth.

Stopped printing and isn't recognized

  In Windows XP print jobs can get caught in the print spooler, this will cause pending print jobs not to print. It may also hinder the user from uninstalling the printer driver. Usually you can delete the print job by opening the print spooler in the System Tray but this may not work with this problem. NOTE: This fix below also solves the problem of "The Printer Queue Is Full" error message.
One solution is to restart the spooler in Windows XP to clear it. Follow the instructions below to do this:
Click Start, then Control Panel.
  1. For Category View:

    • Click Performance and Maintenance.

    • Click Administrative tools.

    • Double-click Services.

  2. For Classic view:

    • Double-click Administrative Tools.

    • Double-click Services.

  3. In either, locate the print spooler on the list-->right-click-->choose Restart.

  4. A progress message will appear and the spooler should be clear.
You should now be able to print or remove the printer driver as you choose.
