Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon pixma mp470service error 5100


Hi ahareas,

This error 5100 that you are getting could be as simple as a loose cartridge. Take the cartridges out and put them back in making sure they snap in. There's also a possibility that there's something inside that is obstructing your print cartridge. To take a look on this, took the back off with three screws, then the side panel. You have to take the trim off, there's one screw. Look for the little arrows that show where the tabs are that slide into the side of the printer itself. Use a screwdriver to unsnap them. Tip your printer side ways and check if there's any obstruction in there. Remove it and put your printer back together.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Error code5100


HI:
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.

This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

Error 5100 canon mp470 my screen is showing error code 5100. i cant find the manual to my machine can you help? what exactly does the error mean?


Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 Seen this many times
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.

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.
