SOURCE: canon pixma mp560 gives error

This error indicates that there's an obstruction with the Carriage which is hindering the movement of the carriage. It's possible that there's something obstructing the following components: print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. Open up the front access door and check the printhead position. If it parks where it should, try moving it manually towards the other side, do this while the printer is On. After that, restart the printer.
If this doesn't help, then try the following steps:

  1. Turn off printer
  2. Hold down "Resume" button and press "Power" button to power on the printer.
  3. Now hold down the "Power" button and release the "Resume" button.
  4. Again, press "Resume" button twice then release both the buttons
  5. You'll see green lights flashing and then it'll stop blinking and will remain static.
  6. At the time when green lights remain solid, press the "Resume" button (four) 4 times.
  7. Again, press the "Power" button and the printer should turn off, if it's still On, once again press the "Power" button.

If the problem persists, try reinstall the cartridges and the print head. Also clean all the (possible) components so that there shouldn't be no actual obstructions inside the printer.

If nothing seems helpful, you may likely need to service the printer.

Good luck

Thanks for using FixYa.

You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.

What is error B200 & how can I fix it? Canon MP560

Sorry but scrap it as the cost of the parts is more than the printer is worth. You need and new printhead and logic board and they MUST be fitted together at the same time.

I just install new CANON Pixma MX870 and got error 5011 message on display... I am able to print from computer, but copy and scan functions did not work. Turning power off and back on reset the alarm, but...

According to this forum post, it sounds like a hardware problem.

It is possible that the scanning mechanism is broken as copy and scanning both require the same technology.

Canon MX7600 error 5100, 5C20

Yes, 5100 means the carriage is not moving back and forth properly or there is grease on the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. Grease spots make it lose count and slam into the side and grind gears. You need to clean the strip with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, but very carefully, not too much pressure on the strip.
