Printer error 5C00 printer carriage not moving across pixma ip3300


Fixing this error is much easier as it looks.

1. Unplug the printer completely.

2. Move the ink cartridge cradle gently to the left.

3. Over to the right at it's usual resting place you will see a small pad about 1cm square. This pad and the area around should be covered with ink.

4. Get a microfibre cloth and press down on this pad - it's not fixed so should come away with the cloth, otherwise use tweezers gently.

5. Squeeze the pad several times between your thumb and forefinger while inside the microfiber cloth to remove ink build up.

6. Then when not much ink comes out on the cloth, clean the area in the printer around the pad so that looks free from ink too.

7. Then position the pad back in place, move the cradle back into position, plug in and switch on - should work fine now.

But it's worth checking for any paper caught near the ink pad as my error occurred after a paper jam. Good luck smile.png

5c00 error


Error 5C00 is Purge Cam Sensor error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need repairing.

Ink cartridges stuck after replacement


HP PSC 1350.

Very sensitive printer. Due to dust, the catrdges are getting stuck at right side. Please clean the steel roller where the catridges are rested. Clean it with nice cloth and if possible put 3-in-1 oil in that area only for the smooth flow of catridges in that steel stem or roller.

This might happen iif we are not installing the orignal and genuine catridges and there is a chance of ink gettng leaked onto the printer.

Kind advise is if the printer is old, please put an annual maintenace service contract with local authorized hp Printer Dealer which will solve your problem once for all.

have a nice and good working day.

Make sure to clean all the parts thoroughly.

Canon PIXMA MP830 All in One - A600 error


Here’s what I found.
There is a sponge to the right as stated but right next to that is a white plastic arm assembly with a spring attached to it.

It was the white plastic assembly arm that was stuck and not fully retracted. I tried to move it back and forth and then (pingk) it fully retracted. I powered on the printer leaving the ink caddy to the left and as it was cycling I could see the plastic arm was covered with dried ink. I powered it off and moved the ink caddie to the left again and powered it on again. As it cycled I pulled the power plug leaving the assembly fully exposed. Grabbed some paper towel and put some alcohol on it and cleaned the dried ink off as best I could. I left the caddie to the left as I powered it up to see the assembly work

The printer is working again

Mp600 error 6A00


I have the Canon Pixma iP4000R printer. I had an error code of 6A00 and my power light was blinking/flashing green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange (12 oranges).

I tried the “waste ink counter reset reset” procedure: Power on while holding the stop/reset button and pushing the service button twice, then pushing the stop/rest button 4 times to clear the error, but that didn’t work.

My ink cartridge carrier wasn't moving. I thought I had a paper jam.

I looked at a few blogs about my error on other Canon Pixma models and they kept talking about “sponges”.

The following is what I discovered that cleared my error and now my printer is back to printing!

The “sponges” are 2 hard pieces of absorbing plastic or something of the like. I was looking for a softer material like the long thin gray foam strip material in my printer. The 2 "sponges" on my Pixma iP4000R were next to each other-one was rectangular and one was square-like. Originally they were white but the ink made them black/navy.

The "sponges" are located on the right under where the ink cartridge carrier "rests".

I didn't see the sponges at first, as there was a white backwards “L” shaped plastic piece that had a spring attached to it. The “L” shaped piece was moved forward out of its place. I used my pen tip and pushed that piece back and found that the rectangular "sponge" had popped out of its place.

I used a pen tip popped both “sponges” out and rinsed them with water and voila they were once again white. I think the rectangular one had so much ink on it it popped itself out of place.

My error is gone and I can print again!

Hp psc 750 xi how to replace black ink cartridge


1) Pull out your old black ink cartridge, py pressing the button on top of the old cartridge and pulling it down.It will be released, then just get it out.
2) Look at the back of your new ink cartridge, there should be a small panel with some small squares and kinda orange panel, this is the side that should not face you, it should face the ink cartridge holder on the printer.
Just put it in like that. Tell me if you have any problems.
