Every time you print a page, there is a waste ink that needs to be cleaned. Canon printers have a feature that helps the printer to remove excess ink used in cleaning and printing operations. You should print pages in your printer until the waste ink absorber is complete. After that, you can begin to make an error that the waste ink absorber is complete. You will get a 5b00 Canon printer error. The error may be that there are ink drops on your printer, or that the ink absorber is full, or that the waste ink counter has become full. To solve your problem with how to repair canon printer error 5b00, you will need to continue reading this guide.
According to the state-of-the-art continuous ink systems built in the new printers, error 5b00 is very popular. Take the following steps to fix this issue.
Step 1: Disconnect your device. To start fixing the issue, begin removing the printer from your system as well as the main source of power.
Step 2: Press and hold down the printer power button and insert the power cord into the wall socket.
Step 3: Keep the power button until the printer starts to reset itself. When all the lights are on, and the printer starts making the sound, press the power button.
Step 4: Wait until the green light in the printer is turned off. When this happens, push and release the power button twice quickly. Then the green light will blink for 2-3 seconds and then stabilize. You can see that “Stable” is written on the printer.
Now, you’ve successfully reset the waste ink counter. It will resolve the problem most of the time, as you still have printing power even though the waste ink counter indicates that it’s complete. If the issue is still not fixed, you will need to clean the waste ink foam manually. To do this, you must follow the steps given below.
Step 1: Open the printer lid to reveal the cartridges inside. There’s a row of white rollers behind the cartridge.
Step 2: Clean your foam pad. You’ll find a small square below the roller that looks like a foam pad. Take a soft piece of paper towel and rub the foam to release the ink. Keep this foam clean before all the ink is cleared.
Step 3: Assemble the printer. Place all the cartridges back in their place and close the lid of the printer. When that is completed, the printer has to be restarted. Just turn off the printer and turn it on again.
Doing the above two things will fix Canon printer error 5b00. If you don’t, you’ll need to contact customer service who will direct you through the steps you need to take. Specify the error you are experiencing along with the steps you have taken to ensure that you are adequately assisted.
