try cleaning the plastic strip that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated.
Use alcohol and a swab.

5100 is a carriage error, usually caused by grease on the clear encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. You can clean the strip with a damp Q-tip just damp with plain water.

Error code 5100 is being displayed on the screen


Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in:
- Carriage unit
- Timing **** strip film
- Logic board assembly
- Carriage motor
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Canon iP6700D error 6A00


6A00 is a purge assembly error, thats the cleaning unit on the right where the printhead parks. Look on the right with a flashlight and see if there's paper, or anything that doesn't belong. If the wipers are jammed into the pad assembly, you will need a new purge unit, best changed by a shop.

Error code 6A00 comes up on the Canon Pixma iP6700D. We have moved the carriage manually, it doesn't move when the printer starts. Thank you. Kilian Kuntz


That error code tells you that the purge assembly is stuck. If the carriage is locked on the right you will need a shop to open it up and release it. If it's not a paper scrap or something stopping it, you will need a new purge assembly. Around $30.00 to replace.

Error code 5100 on the canon ip6700D printer. stops printing part way through. Have tried all the cleaning options.


5100 says the carriage is not moving properly or there is ink or grease on the encoder. One time I found a camera card inside stopping it, but usually it's just grease on the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly.also if the purge assembly on the right is stuck in the up position you'll get that error.
