SOURCE: Canon MP530 error code "5C10" ?

I had a similar problem. I replaced all the ink cartridges and cleaned the printer.  I checked the nozzles to be sure that they were clean and cleaned the area where the cartridges set.  It took a little while but my printer is working again.  Mine makes a clicking sound after you push the copy button but still pulls the paper through.  Does yours pull the paper through at all?

SOURCE: canon MP600 printer

sounds like the inner cover is not seating properly. so, perhaps there is something amiss inside, making that cover not latch cleanly? do a visual inspection(got one of those dental type mirrors?).

SOURCE: error is inner cover is open.

I have had this error message and no matter what I do, the message won't clear and the printer will not operate. I have closed the "inner door", powered down, even unplugged it from the computer to reset. The message will clear when I restart, but as soon as I try to copy or print, it looks like it will work, but then I hear a slight click and the message comes back. The door isn't open, but something is communicating that it is. Anyone else have this problem?

SOURCE: Canon Pixma ip3000 flashing amber 6 times

If the 6 flashes are accompanied by an on screen message #5400, this is a "Service Call Error" code.

This code indicates the following;
Internal temperature error [5400]
The solution to this is the following part replacementl
- Logic board ***'y (QM2-1548) *1

*1: Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or
more, also replace the bottom case unit (QM2-1205) or the ink absorbers (QC1-4222 / 4223 / 4224 / 4263 / 4264 / 4864 / 4221 / 4257) when replacing the
logic board ***'y.
[See Section 3-3. Adjustment / Settings, (6) Service mode, for details.]

Good luck!!!

SOURCE: getting "inner cover is open" message

The inner cover is a flap on the inside in front of the carriage when it is at rest when the cover us open. You had to flip the inner cover down to access the ink cartridges.
Open the cover. The inner cover is in the center and need to be flipped up.
Good luck.

My printer won't print because it says the inner cover is open. How do I close it.


The inner cover is the flap that you drop down to replace inks, there's a small switch on the right inside that goes bad, you can try opening and closing a few times, but you may need a shop to replace the switch.

If I want to print it doesnt work, info comes "inner cover is open" what can I do?


Hi Sir, This Inner Cover is actually the plastic door which is usually opened to install or remove the ink cartridges. This door or cover must be open or not properly inserted. Try Re-inserting it and set it Firmly.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Error is inner cover is open.


The "inner cover" can be seen if you open the paper output door, which you have to do to open the "printer cover" to get inside the machine and install the ink cartridges. The inner cover is a black bar right inside here. Push it up firmly enough , and it will snap up.

Regards,
Sai.
