As far as I am aware a 5100 error is a carriage problem and shouldn't be affected by what the printer is connected to. Have you confirmed that the printer doesn't display the error when connected to a Windows based machine such as a laptop? If it does then check that nothing is obstructing the carriage from moving across the printer and that the timing **** (clear plastic) is not damaged.

There's an error code 6500 diplay on my MP 830. how can I fix it please??

Please press the power button to power off the printer. Unplug it from the wall socket. Wait for about 30 seconds before you turn it back on again.
If the error comes back after power-cycling the printer it means that there is an internal error caused by the hardware chip on the Logic Board of the device.
If your printer in under warranty then Canon will replace the same and that will fix the issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and rating.

0 answersI lost power. My canon MP 830 will not turn on now that power has been restored.

Yikes... This is common with electronics for some darned reason.

The power adapter that comes with the printer may need to be replaced. If this does not fix the issue.. then the power outage has shocked the device and it needs to be replaced.
