Hi
Check the printer connections to and from the PC.
Disconnect it completely and re-connect again.
Uninstall the printer and install it again.

    Then it may seem that something is obstructing the printing process.Check the inside of your printer on the gears under the lid for instance,remove any foreign material,stuck papers etc.Check on the rollers too for stuck papers.
    The error may also indicate problems with the carriage:check the timing strip[plastic strip about 1/4'' in width] for contamination.Make sure nothing's obstructing the unit.

Had the same problem, i just replaced the black ink cartridge which was finishing at that time and resetted the counters. No problems after that. Not sure whether this will help though.

Open up the hood, slide the ink cartridges to the far left, and check for a small silver piece that has dislodged from the far right side of the interior. You will probably need a flashlight to see. It is about the size of a folded paperclip. Even if it is still in place, remove it anyways because the printer identifies it as an obstruction. It serves no purpose so do not feel apprehensive about doing this, it will fix this problem.

SOURCE: CANON IP 1300 SERVICE ERROR 5100

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.

Erreur 5100


Error 5100 is a print head homing error.

Check to see that there is nothing blocking the carriage from moving fully - a torn piece of paper, scrap plastic from an ink cartridge etc...

Also confirm that the ink cartridges are completely and correctly seated.

It would also help to know which model printer you are referring to.
