    printer has been fine up until now. had a paper jam and the paper had straight line cuts in it when i took it out. this happened 3 times. Also the print when printing from the computer, is doubled. especially in the left side of the page (every line) but not the whole sentence. over towards the right side the print is blurred. I tried a regular copy from the copier and it came out fine.

    We have only had this since end of august and also have replaced the black ink already last month.

    Canon said we would have to take it to an authorized dealer.

Hi You can Try

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.

My print jobs keep coming out with smears in certain spots and now the entire print job is blurred. I've cleaned it several times. How do I correct that myself?


If the entire page is blurred, it is probably a dying wave amp board. Time to start shopping because the repair bill is more than a new 8560.

Canon IP4000 Error Code 5100


It is a carriage error.
Most times this is a serious error that requires a Canon tech to fix it.
Look at the carriage and see if there is something obstructing it's movement. If you recently had a paper jam, there may be some paper stuck in the path.
You should be able to move the carriage freely with the power off.
Let me know.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I get ERROR 5100 message for my i350 printer...of course it will not print. How is this fixed? Please help.


I had the error code 5100 for my canon pixma ip6220d printer and all it was a pen in the track of the cartridges. I've been looking for that pen for awhile too. So I would say look for something in the way of the cartridges. Hope this helps everyone.

Brother MFC-210c prints some lines blurred, letters stacked - alignment ok.


i have the same problem. repeated cleanings seem to help, when i print large fonts they come out pretty clear, but the smaller the font, the worse the blurring. 600 DPI prints mismatching patterns, but 1200 DPI prints perfectly fine. so i have found that printing on "fine" quality instead of "fast" or "normal" quality improves print quality ALOT. it uses more ink, but i am in business and need to be able to read very fine print!
