Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon MP160 - Nozzle problem...

So.. my printer has been doing all sorts of strange things...

Firstly, it started coming up with SERVICE ERROR 5100. I came on here, followed the advice and that has not come up since.

Then, paper started getting jammed - each sheet would get stuck.

I have quite new FINE cartridges in it (probably about 3 weeks).

I have taken the cartridges out and replaced them, and the paper seems to have stopped jamming.

The problem now is that the printed pages have white horizontal lines on the sheet- not every line can be seen.

Can anyone help!? I have looked in the manual and online and everywhere seems to say to check the nozzle - the problem is that I dont have any guide regarding the buttons on the actual printer, and the info for MP160s online talks about buttons that i dont have!

Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 Lots of this error on canon
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.

I have a canon mp160. please advice what service error 5100 is and how to corect it. thanks.


5100 means the carriage is not moving all the way right and left. On some you need to remove the right cover by taking out 2 screws in the back and 1 in the front and greasing the slide on the white plastic capping device.

Pixma MP160 has service error 5100


5100 says the carriage is not free to move all the way left and right, or there is ink or grease on the encoder strip, the plastic strip behind the carriage assembly. You can clean the strip with a Q-tip just damp with water.

Says service error 5100 on my canon mp160 printer. it said cancel printing, turn off then back on. didnt work. what do i do?


5100 is a carriage error, make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left, and then clean the encoder strip, behind the carriage, carefully with a damp Q-tip. Usually grease gets on the strip and gives you that error.

Don't quote me on this but I think any error code over E 200 means servicing required.
