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??


Hi,
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.

Cannon MP830 Printer cartridge jam


So you cant get the ink tanks in place properly?

Have you tried this method to ensure they're properly seated? Is the printer on or off when you try to seat the tanks?

Refer to the following steps to verify the ink tanks are seated correctly:
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the Open button. (The paper output tray will open.)

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

  3. Open the inner cover.

    CAUTION:
    a. Do not try to manually move or stop the Print Head Holder.
    b. Do not touch any metal parts.


  4. Press down on the ink tank until a click is heard, thereby making sure the ink tank is seated properly.

    Note:
    Make sure that the ink tank is inserted in the slot that corresponds to the ink tank's color.



  5. Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.

    Note:
    Ink Tank Lamp
    You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
    • - On: The printer is ready to print.
    • - Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
    • - Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
    • - Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
  6. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).

    Note:
    1. When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.
    2. When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.

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.
