    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.

Canon MP560 Gets error code 5100


Hello and Welcome

Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer.
Actually the printer is not actually loading the cartridge and showing you the error 5100.

To solve these follow the following steps. I hope it works
  1. Turn off printer
  2. Remove both the cartridges from the printer
  3. Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches
  4. Return the cartridges
  5. Turn on the printer.
Error will be removed
If the problem exist then then go to Canon authorized service facility for repair. You can also get support by Canon by phone, at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666)

Showing error code 5100


5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.

torn paper in rollers etc

Also make sure all ink cartridges are seated correctly

I get ERROR 5100 message for my i350 printer...of course it will not print. How is this fixed? Please help.


I had the error code 5100 for my canon pixma ip6220d printer and all it was a pen in the track of the cartridges. I've been looking for that pen for awhile too. So I would say look for something in the way of the cartridges. Hope this helps everyone.
