Error 5B00 refers to the waste ink absorption pads.

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates error 5B00.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

This error indicates that an internal error has occurred which may be resolved by resetting the printer. Please follow these steps for isolating and resetting the printer:
1. Open the printer's front cover, and then open and close the print head lock lever (do not remove the print head).
2. Make sure all ink tanks are seated properly.
3. Make sure all packing materials have been removed.
4. Make sure no paper is jammed in the printer.
5. Disconnect the printer cable from the printer.
6. Close the front cover and turn the printer off.
7. Unplug the printer from the power source, and then plug it back in after five minutes.
8. Power on the printer.
If the error returns, the printer will require service options.

Chose my answer as "Helpful" if you fix the problem. Thanks!

Check the print head. Get a cloth and clean out the print head area.

Had this same problem and just fixed it. You need to actually change the button settings in Navigator. Open MP navigator and choose One-Click, then click Button Settings. You can choose a new save destination from here. Even though you are using the software instead of the button on the device, it works.

The ink absorber is full.

After you open the cover and the carriage comes to the center for new ink, you press the resume button for a few seconds and the carriage will go to the printhead changing position. You don't want to ever force the printhead to move. Hope you didn't break something already. Sorry for the stupid help.

The cartridges for the IP3600 printer have a chip on them that needs to be reset before the printer will accept the newly refilled cartridge. if you don't have the resetting device then unfortunately refilling these cartridges won't help you at all.

on Mac go to
download driver for Mac
download on mac install on mac .
apple should find the printer if MAC is connected to same IP network once the driver is installed .

don't download from a windows p.c !
must be a MAC to get correct file system for Mac .

might also need scanner software

this is a photo organiser for MAC

I have actually installed networked printer on an Apple System and as long as MAC and printer are on same ip network it should detect the printer once the driver is installed on the MAC

This might work
Error Code 6502 appears generally after chaging a cartridge.

  1. Unplug the printer.
  2. Remove the faulty Cartridge
  3. Plug in the printer and press and hold power button
  4. Keep it held down. Press Resume twice, and this should reset the fault.
