    not working error code 5010

  • bigworld31 Aug 21, 2008

    Yes, same thing happens to me...Error code 5010...and flashing green and orange...alternating lights.

    I was trying to photocopy (in basic black, not colour). I had a few pages to copy. I got this 5010 Error code after EACH copy!

    I had to turn off the printer after each copy and then turn it back on for the next copy. That's not the worse of it.....once I turned the printer back on and hit copy again...the printer took a VERY long time to scan the item for the next copy. It took me a good 40 minutes to copy 15 pages.
    Sooooo irritating!!!!!

    Anyone know what to do?

    I've also had the paper jam on me tons of times. I am really disappointed with this product. I would not recommend this printer to anyone!

Error code 5010 green & orange lights flashing printer will not operate


Error 5010 is a scanner error, either not warming up properly, or lamp or sensor error. Either way, the scanner will need to be replaced. I can check for you and get a part number and price if you like.

I have a cannon MP 510. When I turn it on, the carriage slams right and left. Then the lights on the front flash Green (left) Orange (right), Green (left) and Orange (right), then stops flashing for a...


I suspect you had a paper jam and removed it from under the main cover. It sounds like you have got grease on the encoder strip (the long blackish plastic strip that runs the full width of the machine. The carriage looks at the encoder so it knows where it is. Clean the encoder with soapy water on a cotton bud. You may have even snapped the encoder which will mean you will need a new one.
Good luck

    Canon printer mp 510 error 5010


    That is a purge system error, either you need a new purge assembly or there is a paper scrap caught in there stopping it. The purge unit is on the right where the printhead parks at shutdown and where the printhead is cleaned.
