Hi, To fix this error, take out the ink cartridges and also the print-head unit... clean the print-head (not with water) just with cotton balls or something like that. Replace all parts back into printer. Turn it off. Wait 10 seconds. Turn it on. Your error should be gone. As was mine.... Or Error 5c00 error relates to the sensor in the purge unit, which is where the carriage stops on the right hand side of the printer. You may find that the ink has built up in the purge unit and it will need to be washed out in warm water. The sensor in the purge unit will need to be removed before washing the unit. Problem is getting the purge unit out is quite tricky.

When i turn the printer on it tells me error code 5c00


Hi andrew_webb0,

The error code 5C00 means the purge unit is broken. To fix this, you have to bring the printer to a Canon service center and need to replace it with new one.

Hope this helps.

Error code 5C00 on Mp 500 please help with fix


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.

Error Code 5c00 for Canon ix4000


5C00 is a purge assembly error, it happens when paper is caught stopping the cleaning blades from working properly, or when the purge unit is just worn out.

Cannnon mp-530 shows 6a00


Hi
This is same as the wat full
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Error code problem


Unplug printer. Press and hold power button for about 15 seconds. 5C00 is a hardware service code. Meaning there is an EEPROM error on the printer systemboard. Which may need to be replacing by a certified techinican.
