Fixing Canon Printer MP495 P07 5B00 Error

(Bear with me for a moment.   I love technology, but I also love fixing things and reducing waste. )

Yesterday, my Canon wireless printer started showing a 5B00 Error.  After googling and finding no clear answer, I called the Canon support line.  They told me to go to repair center.

The lady at the repair center said it would be 50 dollars just for the technician to view my printer, and it would cost more depending on what they needed to do.

That's ridiculous, since my printer only costed 70 dollars on Amazon.

Being a staunch minimalist,  I had to fix this computer at all costs.  After scouring the seedy fix your own internet sites, and I found the right instructions and program to fix your Canon Printer MP 495 5B00 Error.
