Dear it seems a simple printer driver problem. I suggest you that if you have printer driver cd-rom than uninstall printer driver from add & remove program in control panel and than restart the system and unplug the printer from the usb port. Than insert the printer cd-rom and follow the instruction. And when it ask to connect printer to usb port at that time connect the printer to usb port and power it on. and let it get installed properly as per the instruction ok. This might get resolve your problem. if not kindly revert it to me.

Fix error code:OxF1


According to this site:

Printer Manual reset

the error means that the print head can't travel across the paper. When you turn the printer on, it should try to move the head across the paper. If it can't, you get this error. Open the front, and check that nothing is blocking the printhead from moving. If nothing is, it may move just a bit. Unplug the printer while it's trying to move the head, and manually (gently) move the head. If it's stiff, you may need to lubricate the shaft (1 drop sewing machine oil).

Make sure that the head can move on the carriage bar as this indicates a head assembly lock or jam. Make sure all the paper paths are clear and there is no tiny piece of paper stuck. Power it back on. If this does not resolve then you will need a visit to the repair shop or buy a new printer which is probably cheaper!

The print head will not move


Be sure to leave the printer ON if you will change the Ink cartridge. If the printer is OFF the printer head will not move.

Cannon mx 310 error 5100 Says chck printr with alarm light flashi


heres the problem from service manual: error 5100, a error occured in your encoder signal, it list 4 things in the serice manual.
carriage unit. carriage motor, logic board, timing **** film.
ok my first thing i would look at is the film that runs directly behind the print head i would think it is dirty. just turn on printer and get print head to the middle and turn off machine, gentle move print head to one side and gentle clean the film strip with a cloth with a little metho on it, move print head to other side and clean other part of ****.
i reckon that will fix your problem its a common problem they tend to get a bit of grease on the timming ****.

Does not print red, print heads do not return to left parked area


The printhead not moving to the left I think I can solve. Open the top cover, the yellow light on the paper feed button wil come on solid, press and HOLD this button until you hear the print head assembly make some noises (about 10 to 20 seconds) then release the button and then the printheads will move and park on the left so you can remove the printhesd(s)

Help i cant print


Hi,

Error code 5100 refers to blockage along the print path. While this could be a number of things, simple remedies may include lubricating the slider rod where the print head moves along. This could be as simple as a drop of oil, cleaning and checking no paper bits or accumulated dust/ dirt or grime. Another area to check is the waste in pad. This would be the white receptacle below the print heads when in park position. On certain instances, the sponge may be dislocated and would simply require moving back in place. At other times, there could be obstruction blocking the print heads resting in the correct park position. This again could be dirt,grime, bits of paper, paperclips, staplers, or even gummed up or dried ink.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I don't know if this will help but your problem sounds like one I had with a C82 model. On the right side of the printer below where the print head rests is a small plastic suction tube. This tube can become disconnected and will prevent the printer from printing. Check to see if this is your problem. In the picture the red circle shows where the tube connects and the yellow shows the tube.

Printer head is immobile


Take a look at the belt closely,

1- there should be grooves,sometimes these belts start to fall apart, the grooves actually start to fall off  and don't grab the printhead.

If you look inside of the printer are there any black pieces? If so say goodbye, It is almost impossible to find replacement parts.

 

2- test by moving the printhead to a different location with it off then turn on to see if it moves.
