PIXMA TS8220 Error Code 5B00


I have an error code 5B00 on my Pixma TS8220 printer. It says take it to a service center. 

Can I fix this myself?? 

Canon doesn't list any service centers, or at least I can't find it.

This error appears when the waste ink counter inside the printer needs to be reset. There is not a way to do this yourself and the printer would require service. You can take the printer to any local electronic repair shops in your area that can service printers. 

If the printer is in it's 1 year warranty, I recommend reaching out to Canon support for your warranty options. You will need to register your Canon gear HERE to access additional support options.

If the printer is out of warranty, you would qualify for the Canon Upgrade program. This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service or are incompatible with a new or upgraded system. This program allows you the opportunity to purchase a replacement product discounted from the list price. Free ground shipping is included with your purchase.
