Customer Question

I keep getting error 6000 on my Canon Pixma MG 5520. I've unplugged and turned it off multiple times. I don't see any little pieces of paper. Before I got that error it would not grab the paper and print.

Thanks for posting your question on, a global paid independent support site.My Name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. This seems to be a hardware problem, please open the printer cover and let me know if the cartridges can move to the center, automatically or not ?

It won't do anything with the error message lit up but when I have turned it off and manually moved it to center it does return to the left side automatically.

  • Verify that the paper tray is correctly set.
  • If any object is placed in front of the machine, remove it.

Solution 2:

  • Search for any small pieces of paper in the printer, or a tiny object.

Solution 3:

  • Power off the printer
  • Wait 5 minute
  • Power on.

Solution 4:

  • Clean the encoder strip with a soft cloth, let me know if you need any help following this step.
