The canon website is screwed and won't tell me anything about error codes. The codes disappears but comes back again after using the machine a few times again. I have a Pixma IP4200 suddenly getting error code 300, saying "The Printer Does Not Respond.
The machine takes about 2/3 min to restart and is becoming annoying. Make Sure the Printer is Plugged In, Powered On and Connected to Computer." Printer can't Open Printer Connection. Also, is it best to leave printer on all the time rather than turning on and off? I had this issue, ERROR CODE 300, and the problem turned out to be simple.
Can I use Metholated spirits to clean the heads..?? The only other issue has been that i want the printer to use the black ink used for general printing & not the one used for color in fotos, but it seems to prefer the "color" ink.
Install the correct print head.") I have pulled the print head out according to the setup sheet & put it back in & installed the correct inks again, it comes up with the same message still. Have I done something by putting in the 3rd party inks & their chip has caused damage to the print heads..??
The orange light blinking 5 times for the i P5000 indicates that there is a problem with the printhead, try pulling it out and putting it back in then restarting the printer.
Hi there I have a Canon Pixma MP830 that has worked great until today when I was scanning/copying invoices then an alarm light flashes and its boasting a 5010 error code.
Rinse it from both sides until no more color comes out.
Then take windex in a spray bottle and spray into both sides until no more color comes out.

I done this and it worked for about a month, then the same error. It worked for 3 days, Now I cant get it to work at all.
