Hi

LPT1 (line print terminal, set to IRQ5 on stand alone) , this is parallell cable. This means your printer cable was connected to your computer using this type of cable.
It is not recomended or advised to turn off the printer while in print stage . Try using a USB cable to connect your printer to the computer. You may also have to reinstall the printer drivers , as the registry may be now be corrupted.

Is your printer connected with a serial cable, if so, you may have to install the printer and software again, but if you are connected via usb and this is the given error then there is a connection fault as, you may already know that LPT1 is not a usb connection but serial cable.

Error 5200 shows when trying to print. Not listed in the user manual.

I found a few answers http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/canon/bj/s400.htm

error 5200 indicates print head overheating. You might try printing 1/3 of document, pausing for cooling then print second 1/3, pausing for cooling then print final 1/3 as a work around.

Looks like thr repair cost is more than a brand new Multifunction printer/scanner

I have a Canon iP1800 color printer. I recently

Look around thoroughly in the Printers > Properties tabs. While in the shop, they have no doubt tested your computer (without your printer hooked up). Try letting your computer boot up without the printer, then with printer power on, plug in the USB cable.

Perhaps your printer is "offline." If so, right click on your printer's name in control panel. Choose "Use printer online".

Canon pixma ip 3000 will not exit the error mode. every time i try to rest it it retunrs, any ideas?

Try turning it off at the mains, it should re set the printer.

Also you can if you have any print jobs in the printer que delete them, you can find that by going to your system tray, normaly if there are items waiting to be printed your printer should be residing there, right click it & choose your printer, from within the screens that are open you should see print jobs in que, select them & delete them

Soon after initiating printing, Canon s400 printer stops with a loud clunk. This produces Error 5100. Turning off and on again does not help.

Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 This happens lots in caon
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

How do I replace the waste ink pad on my Canon S400 printer?

before you "mess" with the ink pad, try cleaning the print head rail. This is the chrome rod that the print head rides on. Use a little alcohol on a soft rag. After cleaning it, wipe a thin layer of oil (3in1 or sewing machine oil) When you power back up it should go through the rutine of cleaning the head etc.
