Hi there, service error 5100 is a carriage home position error.

Turn off and unplug the printer from the power supply.

Remove any paper.

Buy a can of compressed air from an electronics shop or computer store. Use the compressed air (Not a vacuum!!!) to blast out any dust bunnies, paper particles and debris. (Don't do this with the cartridges removed as you're likely to fill the printhead with air!!)

Use isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab (Qtip) to clean the plastic strip that runs the length of the guide rail (the metal rail that the cartridge carriage moves along), it may be contaminated with ink and debris.

Remove and reinsert the ink cartridges inside the cartridge carriage to ensure that they're connecting properly.

With the power off, carefully slide the print head (carriage) to the center of the guide rail. You should not have to force it! (There will be some light resistance but it should move quite easily by gently pushing on it with your finger.)

Close all the access doors, plug it back in, connect your USB cable and turn on the power.

As it runs through the initialization, the printer should sense that the carriage is out of position and automatically move it back to where it should be.

Hope this helps solve your problem, I've had other people do it and its worked for them.

How can i solve the problem error 5001 of ip 1800 canon


5001 is not an error code but 5100 says that there is a paper scrap blocking the carriage, or grease on the encoder strip. The plastic strip behind the carriage assembly that runs all the way across the printer. Try first to clean the strip with a damp Q-tip just damp with water.

How can i install the canon pixma ip 1800 without disk?


Go to this web page:

IP1800 Support

If the "Drivers & Downloads" tab is not selected, select it.

Enter your operating system in the drop-down menu.

Drivers and additional software links will be displayed. Click on the file name to download them.

Save the file to your computer. (Desktop is easiest if you are not familiar with placing the files in a folder.)

You can then install the driver/software from your computer.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How to correct error 5100 in canon pixima ip 1800 prnter


Hi You can Try
If you still look at this web then have a go
Error Code 5100
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.

My cannon printer pixma ip1800 cannot detect ink pls help me...


If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
“The following may have run out of color. The function for
detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”


Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
done one time.
A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
It may show empty.
If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
check” by follow the directions below:
Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
on “Maintenance”
Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.

See pictures for above process at Inktelligent ip 1800 topic

Also the refills refered to above are at the IP 1800 inkfilling page
