Hi. It works but you have to be aware of the fact that all of your settings will be lost as soon as you going through those steps. So better scribble them down before doing it.

This will NOT work for an error 5100 or 5b00 which is a waste tank full error.

Buy 4 PC-21C color cartridges and get the 5th one FREE. The PC-21C color ink tank replaces the Canon BCI-21C color ink tank.

It's "much simpler" to do this:
While printer is on with the error code, hold down
MENU + STOP/RESET buttons
"(together at same time)"
Hold down for 5-10 seconds & Voila it's repaired !
I just did it and it works great :)
