QC3-3927 seems to works also on MP550...
You are probably right. The MP550 and MP560 might be identical or very similar. I searched for a service manual and parts catalog for the MP550 and found this. It is a service manual and parts catalog for MP560 in one PDF file. But notice the file name that suggests that the manuals also apply to the MP550.

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?
I think that the ink stain on the right hand disk can cause the error 6000 as the sensor could skip some markings. This could bring the optical readings for the two disks out of sync. If rubbing the disk with pharmacist's cleaning solution on a piece of soft tissue paper doesn't work then try to add some extra ammonia to the solution or try a window cleaner with ammonia.

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

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.

Hello Artur5,
thank you for your replying . The stripe I do have is 36,8cm and the Dot on the Right side is 2,15(17)mm away from the last line. Best to you

According to Canon, Eror 6000 may be something other than a timing strip issue:


Examples of what may be causing your Error 6000, and potential fix:



From that last link:



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're right... I had just a ugge gear sound and after a couple of hours using it, it stopped that's the reason why I started to try to fix it and of course found a lot of details like the one I showed on the past post.
Thanks anyway for your help.

Hello Stratman,
I change the stripe band, and nothing changed 6000 is still here.
Do you think that the gear from a MP550 is similar than a MG5350?
I could mount it instead of...
What do you think?
Best regards

I do not know.

Besides inspection of both gears, if you had the part # for each gear you could determine if they are the same part. I do not have a parts catalog/manual for either printer.
