Hello people from the community,
I'm looking for information concerning the stripe band from my MG5350. A part is damaged as I said to PeterBJ and I have a several questions concerning it:
- May it be possible to use a stripe band from another Canon Pixma model like MP610, 620... or is it specifical for each models?
Is it a stupid question?
- I cleaned it with the "Pharmacist solution" without any succes.
- As I set it back I got "6000" error msg, the roller paper are turning 1/4 round and I get that msg "please turn your printer off"
Any idea?
Best regards and thanks in advance for your tips

Maybe a timing strip from one of the similar MG5250 or the MG5150 models is usable?

The same print head is used in the MG5250 and MG5350 so if you can find a cheap or free MG5250 with a defective print head but else OK you could consider transferring the OK print head to that printer. This is not recommended though as a defective print head can damage the logic board and a damaged logic board can damage a new print head. This is a gamble.

As you said in the other thread, Error 6000 is for the disk film. Changing the strip film probably wouldn’t help. Also it’s unlikely that the disk is damaged, although it may be dirty, so there’s a chance that cleaning it would fix the problem, but it seems far more likely your suggestion of the purge unit.

Anyway, concerning the ‘possibly damaged’ strip film, @zapat should tell us the Reference of that part. It’s printed on the right end, The picture he/she posted it’s too small to see anything.
Part number is: QCX-XXXX where X can be any number from 0 to 9.
I have four spares from ‘deceased’ Canon printers, all different :
QC1-6526 - QC1-4284 - QC3-3935 - QC1-8293
The last one is for the A3+ wide Pro9000, too long for a MG5350 of course, but the other three are for A4 printers and none of them has the same length. I’m afraid then that only the exact reference will be of use.

Maybe searching Ebay or other places it can be found.
For instance, I entered QC1-4284 or QC1-6526 and found vendors on Ebay, although prices are very expensive, quite preposterous when we include shipping costs ( 40-60 euro total ), At this point probably it would be better to buy a new printer.

None of my former Canons were multifunction printers and there’s only a very small chance that any of my spare strip films would fit a MG5350 but if it were so, I’d send it to him/her for free of course,
Regards and bonne chance.

Dear Artur5, many thanks for your reply. At the right side of the printer is written "Standard Encoder CRV 000"
It seems to be complicated...
Best regards and one more time 1000 merci for your reply

Thanks PeterBj for your reply,

I will build down and up again ;-) Best way to learn anyway.
I keep you posted anyway.
Best regards

I checked the parts number for the MG5250 timing strip. It is QC3-3927 and this timing strip is used for more printers including the MG5350, so now you have a parts number for a Google search. The same strip is also used in the MP560. I looked for a Canon MP650 on Google but found none. Instead there were lots of links to the MP560. So if your MP650 is instead an MP560 you already have a spare timing strip.

Thank you for replying PeterBJ,
I'm gonna look around. I have a MP610 and a MP550 I will compare if it's compatible.
By the way, I found some stain on the wheel (see picture) but I can't get it away with the "Pharmacist Solution".
What do you think about?

QC3-3927 seems to works also on MP550...

There’re Ebay vendors from USA selling QC-3927 spares, either new or used. Prices, as I said before, are absurd (35-45 Euro) if we consider the manufacturing cost of this strip of film, probably less than 1 Euro/USD.

If you measure accurately the length of your strip, there’s a remote possibility that one of my spares would fit your printer. The key question seems to be the length of the stripped part and the position of those black dots at both ends. See in the pictures what they look like and the length of each.

I got "6000" error msg, the roller paper are turning 1/4 round and I get that msg "please turn your printer off"
According to Canon, Eror 6000 may be something other than a timing strip issue:

https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART137916
Examples of what may be causing your Error 6000, and potential fix:

https://medium.com/@bennymarker01/how-to-troubleshoot-canon-printer-error-code-6000-8a224835356f
http://resources.lasertekservices.com/tag/error-code-6000/
From that last link:

The defective components will include one or more from these: LF / EJ slit film, LF / EJ timing sensor unit, Paper feed roller unit, Logic board and Paper feed motor.
That's a lot of things that might be part of the problem, including dust and paper pieces jamming things up. Good you are starting with the easily accomplished potential fixes, like cleaning.

Maybe a replacement timing strip fixes all. Maybe not.

You might consider a new printer instead of spending 45 Euros and not being sure if it will work.
