    I was given a canon pixma mp450 and get the same error code 5100. I purchased the ink and put it in as shown on the diagram as I have no manual with this all in one. I did download the software for windows xp but believe there's a strong possibility that I need more than one driver...I have no clue what I'm reallly doing but this shouldnt be as difficult as it is turning out to be. What is the problem with this 5100 error? the ink is brand new and I dont believe there is any obstructions. I cannot press 'resume' because I do not have that on this printer. I have stop/reset and settings and menu only when I turn the darn thing on, it goes right to the error 5100. please help!!!!

My issue became the port on my laptop not working and not recognizing the printer. I switched the printer over to my old desktop and it all seems to work out fine now.

What is error message 5100 for this printer?


Code 5100 refers to a carriage that is not freely moving from side to side. Look to the far left and right for anything that would impede the carriage path.

Also, it is possible that the clear plastic encoder strip just behind the carriage path has become smudged with (most often) grease. You can clean the strip with a cotton swab dibbed in alcohol.

I hope this helps!

I have a PIXMA MP450 printer and error code 5100 displays on the LCD. What do I need to do?


error code 5100 means it cannot recognize the follwing UO51 cartridge. 
A lot of the time the cartridges need to be re-set. for this :-- 

Remove both cartridges, turn off the printer for a few seconds. Then, restart your printer and wait for it to warm-up. When it's finished warming up and you see the error code for missing ink cartridges, open the printer and insert both of them and close the printer. 

That might take care of it because the restarting of your printer, "fakes it out" every once in a while.

Hope this helps.
thanks for using FixYa

Canon PIXMA MP450 "Servic Error 5100"


Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work

Error 5100


Have you taken the printer apart? as the issue I had with our spare printer was that the home mechanics around here had taken ours apart for some reason and had not put the paper roller pin back in correctly. it was sticking out preventing the ink tank holder from moving.
