Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Flashing orange light

Hi! I usually can fix my own problems with this printer. This time I am stumped, because I cannot find my manual since I just moved into a new home. The error is referring me to my manual, it is telling me that it is a service error Service error 6A00.
Cancel printing and turn the printer off and then back on.
If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail.
I did all this but, don't have them manual handy. Can you help?

It may be that your printer is due a service. depending how often you use it, i had a similar problem with an epson, every so often the printer needs to be serviced to empty the residue ink tank, this is a small tank that collects all the odd drops of ink, when overprinting, head cleaning etc. it could be just that. thats all i can think of, hope it helps

See printer status monitor. Replace the appropriate cartridge. Flashing 5 times means colour cartridge not recognized , 7 times is black cartridge.

Canon iP 5200 orange light flashing 5 times


Hi
IO have one of these printers as my daily workhorse. Thankfully I haven't had the problem you are having.
Did you remove the print-head from the printer and clean it with running warm water?
When I get a possible print-head problem I always do that, rinse it until the water runs clean. Then dry it on kitchen roll making sure that the contact on the back are completely dry before refitting it to the printer. Generally this has cleared any problems (I have several Canon printers - I'm not just referring to the 5200 now).
However If you still get the error it may be worth contacting your nearest Canon service centre. New print-heads are not exactly cheap but these printers are so good it's worth keeping it going. They will probably be able to diagnose the problem quickly and accurately and tell you if it is cost-effective to repair. I don't know what would be involved with the Eprom error. - probably a circuit board change inside the printer.

Printer is flashing orange in equal increments. When printing, I get the error message 6A00. It tells me to turn the printer off then on again. I turn it off an on again, but this does not fix the problem....


Hi
Error 6A00
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.

Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing


Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J
