Error 5B00 refers to the waste ink absorption pads.

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates error 5B00.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

no number but you might need to replace all the inks otherwise in windows set the print for grey scale (black and white only) and not color and see if it prints then

A repeating 5 orange flash is supposed to mean a foreign object inside the machine interfering with the print head. Check at both ends or the carriage track for a crumpled up wedge of paper. If nothing is there, check down the back paper feed path. If still nothing, it is possible the print head is overheating and is about to die.

Man you did some awesome troubleshooting! I don't know, but it sounds like something is physically wrong with internal electronics. I'd call in the big dogs at Canon themselves.

hi i am a Canon certified tech for this machine.the orignal problem you had most likely was not your printhead but since you washed it most likely it is ruined. the problem most likely is the purge unit. the purge unit is the unit to the far right of the machine. this unit cleans and purges ink from the ink tanks to the printhead. to do this it uses 2 pads one for black and one for color. these pads can be flushed with water to soften up any ink. i would also replace the printhead which can be ordered by calling 1-800-OK-CANON or by going to their website. one other tip, refilled ink cartridges cause more clogging of printheads and purge unit then OEM ink. this is because the ink is thicker then the OEM ink. hope this helps to clairify.
