Dear bria13,
Code 5100 indicates carriage operation error. The printer performs initialization process (include carriage unit operation) at first time we turn it on. During this process carriage unit will move right and left reading film timing **** strip. If carriage unit can read film timing **** strip successfully then it will move to home position (originally on purge unit part). Otherwise error code 5100 shows.
Here are possibilities and corrective actions:

  1. Film timing **** strip become mist caused by grease or ink; wipe film timing **** strip with moistened cloth.
  2. Carriage unit faulty;replace carriage unit.

Cannon Pixma ip90 printer mechanical failure code 5100. Printer works for about 2 inches then stops with failure code 5100


The error 5100 actually means nothing. You need to look at the printers green and orange lights. they will be flashing in a certain sequence. Count the way the lamps flash ie.Green are mechanical faults and orange are operator correctable faults. When you have the info repost and i will help you further.

Printer light is flashing.


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.

Green and orange light is blinking continuous.. and the cartridge head is not moving. ip1980.. please help..


check the status of the printer in its driver. the error will be shown there. error 5100 is the most common. error 5100 means the carriage is experiencing difficulty in moving itself.

Error 5100


Don't quote me on this but I think any error code over E 200 means servicing required.
