"Printer died after 1 1/2 years, error code 5700." on May 1, 2009 by danmc7777 (2 reviews)

Pros: This is a pretty decent product as far as ink jets go.
Nice to be able to use the feeder to scan multi-page documents and even cover two sides by running two passes and then the software interleaves the pages to make a seamless pdf file.

Cons: Ink jet technology. It worked very nicely for a year and then a few jets plugged up and wouldn't clear out even with cleaning.
Today the unit is dead, reporting error code 5700 and refusing to do anything after a paper jam.
Cartridges with chips.

Summary: I was pretty happy with this printer until one day it decided to grab about 30 sheets of paper at one time from the top feeder. This created a pretty major jam, and it reported the error code 5700. This jam must have stripped something in the gearing since now all it will do is report this error even after power cycling. Web search reveals that this is a serious fault that requires it to be sent in for repair. Yea, right. This unit is designed to be never disassembled since everything snaps together and opening it up is a major puzzle.

This is only reader review which i found in the web. this may tell you what is the error is all about..

Ive got a canon MX700 with an error code 5700 can you help.

Generally, the 5700 error idicates a faulty paper sensor. But this error can crop up if the paper feeding mechanism is faulty/obstructed as well.

Ensure that there is no obstruction in the paper feeding mechanism. Look for bits of paper or debris between the rollers.
Or you can try a hard reset: Unplug adapter from printer, hold down the power button and replug.
Should that not work, you may want to consider getting it serviced.

Error code 5700.. already checked for jams, none, unpluging won't do it... none of the buttons respond... what else ??

Error 5700 is ASF sensor error.Check first the sheet feeder.If not have a jams the problem is in purge station.You can't fix it by yourself and your printer need repair.

5700 is a sheet feeder error, if there is not something caught inside like a ink pen, paper clip, or kids toy, you might need a new feed assembly. Not too expensive, but a shop repair only.

Suspect the printer's program is scrambled (didn't "boot" right)

Could there have been any power fluxuations/lightning? Even if it wasn't on, if it was plugged in the wall then there could have been damage. Are you using a universal power device or a current protector?

Unplug the unit from the wall, wait 20 to 30 seconds for the power capacitors to disipate their energy and then plug it back in. This will do a HARD reset.
