See this --As a technician, 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 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) 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.

hi raheel, hope i could help you. I think you got a problem with the sensor strip inside your printer. Try to look at it maybe it got messy and the reason a printer head cannot run properly and you got that error.

I can't show you the exact image because my camera was at our store. But hope you could understand this:

  • Turn off the printer
  • Open the cover

Look at the image, you can see a "TRANSPARENT" horizontal strip object which controls the movement of the printer head slots. Try to wipe that with CLEAN tissue paper with a little amount of water.

Here's another one. Try to follow this instruction.
1. Remove the plug of the printer
2. Press and Hold the Power button(don't release).
3. Plug the Printer
4. Release the power button
5. Switch on printer.

Hope this help you. : )

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.

Canon is a greedy company. It may be selling cheap printers, but the company is so obsessed is exploiting the consumers by selling its ink cartridges that is unusually high. Please boycott Canon printers and let this greedy Japanese company fall into pieces.

It shows service error 5100 & doesn;t print


Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in:
- Carriage unit
- Timing **** strip film
- Logic board assembly
- Carriage motor
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Error message 5100 is displayed


Two questions.

Are you reporting the correct printer model? I cannot find the iP1300 on the Canon website.

Are you reporting the correct Error No? I cannot find an Error No 5100 on the Canon web site.

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.
