Your 'waste ink tank' is supposedly getting full.
Note that it may actually be getting full, if it is, and you keep printing, it can get messy. very very messy. ;>
I'd use a piece of folded newspaper about the size of the printer underneath the printer just to be safe. If you do this waste tank counter reset a few times, you WILL leak ink.

Power off the printer. Hold down Resume button, keep holding.
Hold down power button, wait for beep, release resume button while still holding power button down.
Press Resume twice, and release all buttons. Wait for indicator light to settle (stop changing). Press resume either 3 or 4 times, the indicator light will turn orange when you have pressed it enough times. Do not hold, just press.
When the light is orange, press power.

If you still get the error, you may have enough ink to actually physically block a sensor in the tank. When that happens, not only are you close to ink stains, you have to disassemble the printer and clean the pads and 'tank' out. This is even messier than an ink leak. ;>

My printer canon pixma IX4000, have service error 5C00. please help the solution. Thanks a lot before..


It is carriage error, purge unit error or main board problem.

Take it to Cannon or service center to fix the problem.

If it is too expensive to repair, just buy another unit.

Sometimes it is better.

If still under warranty, then claim your warranty.

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.
