  2. Reset using Service tool / Resetter software.
  3. Restart Printer.

You need to enter the Printer to Service Mode to reset the printer using the Service Tool. In this guide, we will use the Canon Service Tool V3400 that supports many types of Canon Printer.
  1. Download Canon Service Tool  V3400.
  2. Run the Service Tool V3400.exe program.
  3. Select the connected USB port number from the USB PORT. 
  4. In the Ink Absorber Counter section of the Service Tool, select MAIN from the Absorber pull-down menu. 
  5. From the Counter Value (%) pull-down menu, select the value (in 10% increments) which is the closest to the actual counter value confirmed before set the counter to the main-board and click SET. 
  6. Print EEPROM information status to confirm that the value is properly set to the EEPROM. 
The printer now can be operating normally, so you can use this guide if the 5B00 error message appears on your printer again.

On our MG 200 printer, the 5B00 error cannot be fixed, because the function buttons don't stay permanently on, so I cannot follow your instructions. Please help. Thanks.
