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.

Service error 5C00? what's that?


Service error 5C00 is a purge unit error. The purge unit like a spitoon to the printhead where is stops. There is a sensor in the purge unit; when it is blocked (usually by ink build up), that error is given. The error indicates that the purge unit may be full or at least gunked up. It may be possible to clean the purge unit and sensor to make the error go away. I base this on information learned with experience on another Canon product (Model i560). Hope this helps...

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.
