    I received a C000 error on my Cannon MG6200 printe/scanner which may be caused by an improperly seated ink tank. When I turn on the printer it just gives the error message but doesn't move the carriage into position so I can refill the ink tanks. Is there some way to do this manually? I've reloaded the drivers, turned everything on and off several times, but nothing helps. Thanks for any advice.

    It could vary by model, but it's usually recommended to not manually move the carriage. It's possible there is more than one error/issue as the carriage should auto center when the access door is open.

    Thanks for your very prompt reply. Since I noticed that a recently filled ink tank suddenly registered as empty when this first began, after hours of trying, starting and restarting, and searching online (this older model no longer offers telephone tech support) I became desperate. I carefully moved the carriage manually and reseated the offending color. I got lucky, because it's fixed! I appreciate your cautionary advice and was very fortunate that there weren't other issues. Thanks again!
