Cancel printing, turn off the machine. Then clear the jammed paper or protective material that is preventing the FINE cartridge holder from moving, and turn the machine on again. If not remedied, turn off machine, unplug the power cord of the machine from power supply. Plug machine back in and turn power back on. If problem is not resolved, please contact service center. This info is from Advanced Guide Troubleshooting Section under An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD....error code 5100. This is a link to Canon to download Guides.

SOURCE: an error 5100 always occur in my pixma iP1980 whenever i print a

Hi,

This particular error has a lot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip.You can find the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display). Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corresponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on).



Thank you !!

Error - 5100 and 6A00 keep appearing. What should I do?


Error 5100 means an error occurred in the carriage encoder signal. Error 6A00 means an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. To fix these two errors you need to replace:
- Carriage unit (QM2-2922)

- Timing **** strip film (QC1-6394)

- Logic board ***'y (QM2-3078)

Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM

information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit (QY5-0146) when
replacing the logic board ***'y.

- Carriage motor (QK1-1500)

-Sheet feed unit (QM2-2916)
-Purge unit (QM2-2925)
