I moved my printer which is a Canon G3200 Megatank printer and now it is giving me error message 5b00 and I tried looking online for help and just get info saying it needs to get fixed by Canon but umm the Canon here is closed due to being non essential and no idea how long it will be closed for but I need a printer so I am hoping to get some idea of what I can do as it can't get taken in to get fixed right now.

The 5B00 message would point to a hardware issue and it wold mean the printer would need service. The error points to the printer's waste ink absorber and it would need to be replaced. Since a replacement part is needed, this would not be something that could be performed at home.
