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.

Canon ip1600 error 5100


First, reseat your ink cartridges.
if reseating your printer cartridges doesn't work, keep looking for things that would cause the printing head carriage (the thing the print cartridges sit in) to not function properly.


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.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
3. fix purge unit


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

5100 is a carriage travel error, either something is stopping the carriage or there is ink or grease on the encoder strip.
