First, make sure that a yellow tab was removed from cartridge when installing new ink. Usually that is the case. It is easy to remove printhead, see instructions in video:

This is an ink overuse error. It may read 5B00 and not 5800.
No real easy fix as far as I know but this video might help. Good luck!

Hi, Try this: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Then, unplug the USB from the back of the printer. After a minute, plug the power cord back in. Let the printer boot up for a minute. Then plug the USB in again. Let the USB get connected. If you don't see any errors and you setup your printer, then that should have reset the "other operation".
Thanks for using FixYa.

You need to buy the ink with the new chip installed, or buy a resetter. The only way to print now is with a new cartridge either Canon, or with a new chip.

i don't know. please open as much as possible to see if there is olde paper still in the machine. if clear, maybe a
flashlight would help search for something in feed tray.
if you haven't tried yet, shut off printer. unplug all printer wires. reconnect power cord then load a few sheets. push the 'Stop' button a few times. push and hold stop button down for 15 seconds. try to copy something. if it works, reconnect to computer and try printing off something from notepad as a test. if still not OK. Canon may be able to test machine over the internet. also, there may be updates to
install for your neighbour.

First, get a flashlight and check inside printer for anything in the way of the ink carriage unit.
If nothing is there, then try removing the ink cartridges and see if the problem goes away, If it does, one of the cartridges needs replacement.
