Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
Problem EC 5010 appears and blocks every further step.
Tried kind of reset, removing power / PC connection / Ink catridges / printer head and vice versa.
It can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

Tips for a great answer:
"Issue: ERROR LCD: Error Code 5010
Solution: Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
Reset the device when it is not functioning properly.
If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.
1. On the operator panel, press and hold the <ON/OFF> button for one second. (The display will go blank.)
Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.
2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON/OFF> button again.
3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request."
