Hello, thank you for using Fixya
5C00 is a purge unit error
This error code tells that the purge unit did not complete a good power on cycle and the cam is not in the correct position.In typical words that means the purge unit is stuck extended due to accumulation of a lot of dried up ink.
To solve it follow this

  • Open the cover and when the head comes to the center, pull the power cord.
  • Once that power is off you can now move the carriage to the far left so it is out of the way.
  • Now use a paper towel and gently blot all the excess ink off of the ink Pads and press them down. If the Wiper blade is extended, clean it and it should snap back in position.
  • If it is still stuck, try spraying the area with Windex but don't get any on anything except the pads.
If you have any fear to do this then best option is to take it back where you purchased it or contact Canon service center about the error code. They will surely solve it.

For further assistance, I am here to help.
Your token of appreciation by Rating my solution will be esteemed
Thanks and Keep Visiting FixYa

Canon IP90 Service error 5C00


BCI - 15 is not the same as the BCI -16. The look and feel the same, but the ink is handled differently by the printer - so while, in theory you could use them interchangable, the output would be terrible... Canon set it so that you can only use a BCI 16 in an IP90.

Buy a BCI - 16 cart and try that.
