Error code 5100

You sent me a response to this question, but now I can't locate it. Anyways... I've owned the printer about 3 months. Soon as I popped in the new ink tank, that error code came on. Printer won't operate at all now. I've only gone through a couple of ink tanks the whole time. Never owned a printer before, which may explain my ignorance. The reason I speculate the problem might be the waste ink absorber is because early on I wasn't aware of the icon that comes on when an ink tank's low. Started getting screwed up prints and didn't know the reason. Manual says to use the clean up option to correct this. So I probably filled up the ink absorber. But it's only now that the printer has decided to quit functioning. The manual also says that if it IS that ink absorber that's full, then machine won't operate and I have to have it serviced and can't fix it myself.

Being that it is only 3 months old i would have it serviced under the manufacturer warranty. 1-800-OK-CANON call that number and you can locate the nearest authorized service center and the service will be covered. If you still need assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my original solution as I strive to provide fast and accurate service.
Thanks,

I own a canon printer MP470.it reads error code 5100 anytime i turn the printer on


5100 is a carriage travel error, something keeping the carriage from moving freely from right to left. Sometimes it is also grease or ink on the plastic strip behind the carriage. You can clean the strip with a damp Q-tip, but very carefully.

Soon after initiating printing, Canon s400 printer stops with a loud clunk. This produces Error 5100. Turning off and on again does not help.


Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 This happens lots in caon
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.

Error 5100


Dear Scub,

Did you hear a loud crunching sound from the printer before the error code 5100 was displayed?

1. You may need to send in the unit for service. Some Cannon Service offer temporary replacement unit while working on yours.

Checking and do-it-yourself inkjet printer repair is messy.

2. You can try check if the print head assembly (carriage) moves freely from left to right. Lubricate/clean if necessary (If your printer has one) check also the **** strip at the back of the carriage. This is a plastic film with multiple dark notch like mark. Clean with cotton swab and light solvent or isoprophyl alcohol.

If these does not solve your problem, guess your back to # 1.
