    After recently changing the print cartridge, the print head will no longer come to center when the door is opened and error code 5100 appears. Any means of bringing head back to center to examine cartridge placement or other problems?

This is usually an indication of a printhead problem. You can try to reseat the printhead by following the following instructions: http://alpha02.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?RQF=MAIN&RQS=WWUCA103&LA=1181004348845&SV=WWUCA104&TRF=MAIN If the does not repair it (which it usually will not) then replace the printhead. Part #QY6-0056-000 (est. $30 US) That should do it. Please rate this solution after you find out if it fixes it. If it does not, please let me know so I can investigate further. Thank you Ed

Error code 5100 i have turned off machine, unplugged at electrical source. After 30 min replugged in to electrical source, turned on printer. Pressed print button. Machine processes for a few minutes...


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

    Selphy DS 810. Shows error code 5100. I want to


    Hi You can Try

    Error Code 5100
    Solution 1:
    Clean the timing strip.

    Solution 2:
    The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

    Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

    Only gave it a go

    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


    1. check the user manual if you had one for that error code,
    2. and I suspect the ink level of your printer,
    3. and also check if there is any paper jam exist,
    4. disconnect the power source for 2 mins and turn on again.
    5. try to print again.
