Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I cancell the printing and turn off the printer. I let it stay off for a while and turn it back on. Five pages later I get the error code again. I also just change the ink. All were low except the small back was half full. Now the small black is showing low after five pages.
By your description, you probably have read that the 5100 error means that the movement of the print head holder is blocked. I get this error occasionally and handle it by turning the printer off and then on. The last time it happened, I heard something like a belt snap. Try opening the printer top and seeing if you can gently move the holder. Are you hearing sounds from the printer that are new?
