Firstly, hi, any way check that ur ink cartriges are not low. if not you may have a software problem. Try uninstalling the software, taking the plug out of the back and try again. Install the software and turn the fax back on. It may work, if not u may have an hardwear issue, return it tp Canon with the warranty on the fax

Error 5100


Hi,5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.

Movement of the ink cartridge holder is blocked. There may be a scrap of paper, or staple, or paper clip binding the cartridge from moving. Check for foreign objects. Press and hold the on / off button to power down the fax. Unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 minutes. Plug it back in and power up. Also, check to make sure the cartridge is installed correctly by removing and reinstalling it. If the same error occurs, contact Canon service rep.
Reference page 62 in Users Guide.


I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100. Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

Thanks for using fixya...

ERROR MESSAGE SAYING CHECK 5100


Hi,
Check your cartridges are good, must be sat correctly.

check that the timing strip is in the center

1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor
It is located at the back of head carriage, use a contact cleaner.

check something is not blocking the carriage.( usual suspect )


To reset
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
Or, press reset( or resume) button 4 times then power.

Hope this helps
Regards
Richard.

I am using a fax machine Canon L80 and waiting to receive a fax ... it's blinking between and says "received in memory" and "check paper size" ... not sure what to do.


"Check paper size" means that the paper in the machine doesn't match the size selected in the setup.

To change the paper size:
1. Press the Function button.
2. Press the Data Registration button.
3. Press Set button.
4. Use up or down arrows until you see PRINTER SETTINGS.
5. Press Set button.
6. Use up or down arrows until you see PAPER SIZE.
7. Press Set button.
8. Use up or down arrows until you see type of paper in the paper tray (LTR, LGL, A4).
9. Press Set button.
10. Press Stop/Reset button.

Machine should now print out the fax that was received in memory.
