    Working now!

    All I did was get a can of contact cleaner (CO Contact Cleaner)

    about 20 bucks a can and tilted the printer backwards and sprayed under the printhead where I thought the pins were and hey presto! fully functional printer again. Woo-Hoo

I am getting an error message that says 5C00


The 5C00 code is for purge cam sensor error meaning an error occurred in the purge unit. You can remove the purge assembly and clean out all the ink covering the moving parts. You can clean it with isopropyl alcohol or just water. If no luck, replace the purge unit, will be around $30. This is the part number, if you need to replace it: Purge unit (QM2-2925).

Error code says 5c00 on my canon pixma mp500 printer. cant find my manual to figure out what the code means


The error code 5c00 usually means that there is a paper jam or paper path restriction.
If the path is not restricted, the printer will need servicing.
If you want a downloadable user manual for your printer go to
