Error - 5100 and 6A00 keep appearing. What should I do?


Error 5100 means an error occurred in the carriage encoder signal. Error 6A00 means an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. To fix these two errors you need to replace:
- Carriage unit (QM2-2922)

- Timing **** strip film (QC1-6394)

- Logic board ***'y (QM2-3078)

Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM

information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit (QY5-0146) when
replacing the logic board ***'y.

- Carriage motor (QK1-1500)

-Sheet feed unit (QM2-2916)
-Purge unit (QM2-2925)

I am getting error message 5100....can't locate the manual...Any ideas? Thanks!


Error 5100 indicates "carriage jam". The carriage is the assembly that contains the print-head and ink cartridges. This error can be difficult to solve because various things can cause it.

Make sure the ink cartridges and print-head are installed properly. Remove them and re-seat them.

Check the gears as best you can for any obstructions.

If the carriage moves to a center position when you open the cover as if to change cartridges, try a reset to clear the error message :

1. Turn off printer (use button, don't unplug)
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

Sometimes you have to try this a couple of times, if you've never done it before. If this does not work, unplug, wait 3-4 minutes, then re-plug in.

Not printing with new ink cartridges print real faint


1) do you have original crg.?Try to performe deep cleaning of print head.
2) try to put in your old one and if its some ink in it try to print something out, if its ok buy another crg.
3) it may be purge unit error.How many print outs do you have ?
4) on Ink Cartridge you have little circle and tiny hole - blow into hole so that you get some ink drops.If then works its purge unit 100%
5) Check print head

Service error 5100 on canon pixma mp130


When this happened to me, I beat my head against the wall until I finally figured out that the waste ink absorber on the right side (spongy looking thing), was overflowing, and clogging the nozzles. I took a piece of paper towel and absorbed some of the ink. Make sure to wipe the colored ink absorber as well.
