Hi You can Try 2 things.
This may do for you the trick
There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
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.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have Error 5100 in my All in one printer Canon MP180


Error 5100 is a carriage error. There is a plastic strip that goes through the carriage, if that strip is dirty, damaged, or has come loose, that will cause the problem.

Power off, check the strip, use a barely damp qtip to very gently clean it, and try power on again.

If you still have the error, it is probably mechanical, and could be any number of things, none of which are easy (or clean) to fix.
