    I own a canon printer MP470.it reads error code 5100 anytime i turn the printer on


    5100 is a carriage travel error, something keeping the carriage from moving freely from right to left. Sometimes it is also grease or ink on the plastic strip behind the carriage. You can clean the strip with a damp Q-tip, but very carefully.

    How do i fix error code 5100


    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 .
    And Also
    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.

    No drivers are available for the printer for Windows ME. It may be time to upgrade your computer if you want to make use of newer printers and hardware.
