[ Edited ]

Please help I keep getting an error code 5B00 and don’t know what it is or means  or how to fix it!! Help Please!!! My warranty ran out too.

So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know exactly what model printer you're using (it's usually on the top or front of the unit), and the Computer Operating System you're using (Windows Vista/7/8/10 or macOS 10.x), as well as the way you connect to your device (USB or WiFi).

Any other details you'd like to give will only help the Community better understand your issue!

I have this 5B00 error with my MG2522 canon printer/scaner 

please let me know the way to correct this, I dont have any ink leakage, but if you also let me know how to actually clean the tank I will do it for sure, my printer is working very good (I love canon printers and cameras) I will hate to yunk it just because of this creapy counter firmware bug, please let me know steps to reset that counter, I will really appreciate your help and support

Hi valdiocanon,


While you may be able to replace the ink absorber in your PIXMA MG2522, there is a software utility needed to reset the printer.  This utility is proprietary and not not available to the general public.


You are eligible for Canon's Upgrade Program. This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service, or for some reason are incompatible with a new or upgraded system. This option allows you a one-time opportunity to purchase a replacement product, discounted from the list price.

To help you get up and running quickly, we also offer free standard shipping (if the order is completed by 12:30PM ET). If you would like to take part in this option, please call our Sales Department at (866) 443-8002.  They're available weekdays and Saturdays after 9 AM ET (6 AM PT). Let them know you have been working with technical support and the Canon Upgrade Program was offered.
