Re: regarding service error 5100 in canon ip1880 printer
1. Try to reset the ink counter by iptool software (sometimes it help)
2. Unplug the usb cable and then turn off and on your printer for a few times.
service error 5100 seems like indicating of mecanism exhausted or out of buffer ram in the printer. You should reduce the amount of pages to print at one time.

please help me,i have problem in my printer,wifi on printer can't search .... I too was given the generic "5100" error message just tonight.
5100 means the carriage is not moving properly, or there is grease or ink on the encoder strip The encoder strip is the clear strip with black lines behind the carriage that runs all the way across the printer. You can clean the strip with a Q-tip just damp with water.
Shut the printer off. Than unplug it's power. Than unplug the USB/data cable. Wait about ten minutes. Allowing printer to reset it's self. Go to pg. 37 of your manual & follow instrctions for cleaning. Connect the power cable, the usb/data cable & turn on the printer. Test printer for error paper jam (light/display message). Canon's web site for drivers, updates, software & guides. PIXMA IP1880 is the iP1800 series.

Problem not corrected? Uninstall printer software. Re-start PC. Re-install software. Re-start PC & re-test.
Hopefully you will not need to uninstall & reinstall.
