Question about Canon BubbleJet i70 InkJet Photo Printer

Canon BubbleJet i70 clatters like a rattlesnake when turned on

Recently, I flew from Hawaii to Italy with my laptop and Canon i70, having removed the ink cartridges from the printer before the flight so they won't leak and make a mess during transit. Now when I turn it on, the plastic lip under the paper feed section clatters like a rattlesnake for a few seconds and then the printer's orange error light starts flashing. I get an error message on the laptop "error 5c00." Then the printer locks up. Can someone tell me if my printer had kicked the bucket, or could it be repaired? I stocked up on printer cartridges that I hate to waste them. I appreciate your advice.

Hi, didn't find anything in regards to the error code you mentioned. The flashing error light i did find something on though. The kind of error depends on how often the orange error light flashes (any # from 2 -10). You can read up on it in the user manual. Tom

Canon bubblejet printer i70...Cannot get the ink cartridge mechanism to come out into the open

There are probably flashing lights which tell you the problem, it flashes orange and green lights with a longer green flash and starts over again. There is probably a problem with the purge assembly which won't release the printhead lock. Sounds like a shop repair.
