The other possibility is that the grease on the Carriage is too viscous.... had the same problem with two separate printers... there is a service bulletin which suggests that the grease needs to be replaced at a service center. When I read about the problem I slid the carraige back and forth along its track several times and the error lite dissapeared and printer is working well, so far (3 days)

I had the same problem with my canon printer. i had just taken it out of the box and turned it on to see if it is working. i was happy to see that it turned on but to my disappointment, it reads an error 5110 (. i took it to a local canon service center, told the technician about the problem. sure enough 10 minutes later he fixed the problem. he said it's a common problem caused by some wires that gets tangled inside the right side housing of the printer. make sure to check if the printer head moves to the center or cartridge-loading position... if this doesn't happen, turn off your printer and proceed to the next steps... this is what he did... unscrewed all the screws to remove the housing or cover on the rightside of the printer (make sure the printer is facing you)... uncoil or untangle the wires... after you did that make sure to set or rest the wires to where it can't be tangled or spooled again. you can use tie straps to secure the wires away. screw the housing side back on the printer. turn your printer on...lift the front cover... if the cartridge dock moves to the center... YOUR FREAKIN PRINTER IS FIXED!!! IF NOT... TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL CANON FIXER-UPPER... REMEMBER TO TELL THEM THAT YOU RECENTLY BOUGHT YOUR PRINTER AND IT'S STILL UNDER WARRANTY SO YOU WON'T PAY A DAMN THING. I HOPE THIS HELPS.

P350 canon printer is showing a code of 5110- check the printer- I am unable to get the cartridgte to move once i open the top of the printer


Error 5110 The carriage will not move up or down properly.

This is probably the lift mechanism which has developed a fault. You will have to take the printer apart and see whether you can cycle the wheels at the purge unit and the greater wheel which lifts the carriage unit freely. These wheels are behind the main board at the right side, so you have to dismount all the cables and the main board with its cage at the bottom screws.
Look for the gear at the end of the carriage bar, it should have a washer on it. (a little plastic washer) it needs to be there so the gear doesn't walk itself off.

I had the same exact issue with my 5110cn printer. It turned out that the 5100 fuser is wrong for this printer and will not work. The 5110 has a circuit board on the inside and the 5100 fuser does not. Dell item number KX491 with a BCN # of 652423 works perfectly.

Hope this helps!
