20 Most Recent Canon MX7600 Office All-In-One Printer Questions & Answers

Yes, 5100 means the carriage is not moving back and forth properly or there is grease on the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. Grease spots make it lose count and slam into the side and grind gears. You need to clean the strip with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, but very carefully, not too much pressure on the strip.

After doing a little research I have found that this is a common problem with this printer and the printer will need to be replaced. This printer was discontinued because of this problem. I have read some reviews that says Canon will replace the printer so its worth a shot to give them a call.

Solution 1: Look inside for a tiny object like a piece of paper, a staple...
Solution 2: The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough . Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.
Solution 3: Clean the timing strip: there is a thin plastic strip running across the width in front of and below the drive belt: there are fine black vertical lines on this strip. If the strip gets a piece of crud on it, you get an error during the start-up sequence.Gently clean this strip with a damp lint-free tissue.

Please remove all cartridges and print head. Using a moist cloth clean the golden contacts on Print head as well as printer. DO NOT touch nozzle of cartridge. Dont insert the cartridge yet.

Please do this :
1. Remove the power cable from printer. Remove the USB cable that connects printer to computer (remove it from printer as well as computer's usb port)
2. Press the printer power button and keep pressed for 3 minutes then release
3. Now plug in the power cable and usb cable (connect printer to computer) and power on the printer.

Clear the printer memory by resetting it:
  1. 1) Press and hold the button for one second. (The display will go blank.) If pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer, unplug the power cable. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the ON/OFF button again. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.

2) If this doesn't work - find the STOP button (symbolized by circle with little triangle inside), press and hold for 5 seconds until the error signal disappears.

    There are manuals available if you need additional information:http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx7600#BrochuresAndManuals

    Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
    Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
    Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

    VH leak error at starting up, cleaning, and print starting.cause ;VH leak is detected at starting up, cleaning, and print starting. Fix it by rebooting.

    Remove the Printhead(s), clean the contacts,and replace in printer . Run nozzle check and try to print.
    If you are able to print a few pages then get the same error, the Printhead will need to be replaced.This may work.
