Re: how to correct error 5100 in canon pixima ip 1800...
Hi You can Try If you still look at this web then have a go
Error Code 5100
Solution 1: Clean the timing strip.
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. All The Best: Pineworks

1- Please open the cover and inspect the inside of the printer carefully. There might be a little piece of paper or a tiny object jammed in there and is causing this error message. Also get some canned air and clean the inside of the printer.
2- Restart the printer.
Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in: - Carriage unit - Timing **** strip film - Logic board assembly - Carriage motor
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.
ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your ink cartridge carriage that disables it from moving. It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire. You may try cleaning also the encoder strip with a moist tissue paper. Furthermore, you may also try cleaning CAREFULLY the contact points of the cartridge holder and the cartridge itself (those shiny bronze pins) with a moist lint-free cloth.
5001 is not an error code but 5100 says that there is a paper scrap blocking the carriage, or grease on the encoder strip. The plastic strip behind the carriage assembly that runs all the way across the printer. Try first to clean the strip with a damp Q-tip just damp with water.
Shut the printer off. Than unplug it's power. Than unplug the USB/data cable. Wait about ten minutes. Allowing printer to reset it's self. Go to pg. 37 of your manual & follow instrctions for cleaning. Connect the power cable, the usb/data cable & turn on the printer. Test printer for error paper jam (light/display message).
