Canon Pixma MP450 - I am getting error code 5100 and printer will not print. How do I fix this?


Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that 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 a PIXMA MP450 printer and error code 5100 displays on the LCD. What do I need to do?


error code 5100 means it cannot recognize the follwing UO51 cartridge. 
A lot of the time the cartridges need to be re-set. for this :-- 

Remove both cartridges, turn off the printer for a few seconds. Then, restart your printer and wait for it to warm-up. When it's finished warming up and you see the error code for missing ink cartridges, open the printer and insert both of them and close the printer. 

That might take care of it because the restarting of your printer, "fakes it out" every once in a while.

Hope this helps.
thanks for using FixYa

Canon PIXMA MP450 "Servic Error 5100"


Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work
