Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer
Hi, my canon ip4200 is putting up an error box on my screen and telling me "error code 5100", and to turn the printer off and then on. Can someone help please?
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to
when it's not in use) sometimes is not lubricated well enough from the factory.
If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display)
Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on)
