Hi You can Try 2 things.

There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
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.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Usually an error 5100 code is saying that the ink carriage has problems. Usually something currently is or recently hammed the cartridge carriage. With the machine turned off and the power cord unplugged, open the machine and inspect the inside do you see any stray pieces of paper along the paper's usually route?

There is a way to reset the machine to clear out the error. I would need to know the exact model of your Canon.

I had a paper Jam and know printer error 5100 mesage is coming up, I turned off the printer for 5 min but when I turn it back on it make a turn nois and then a screeching noise then stop.


Sometimes when you get a paper-jam and remove the sheet, there can be little pieces of paper still stuck in the machine. This will cause your printer to do exactly what you are describing. Also remember that when removing a paper jam, use caution and care when removing the paper. To much force can damage the rollers and small gears inside your machine.
I hope this assists you,
Regards,
Nico

Erreur 5100


Error 5100 is a print head homing error.

Check to see that there is nothing blocking the carriage from moving fully - a torn piece of paper, scrap plastic from an ink cartridge etc...

Also confirm that the ink cartridges are completely and correctly seated.

It would also help to know which model printer you are referring to.

I have an error code 5100. It started grabbing the paper wrong and a piece got jammed. I removed it and then it says error 5100. I have turned it off and on a few times and it is still there.


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Kyocera KM-3035 - Paper Jam 00 error. Paper removed, still not working.


Check to make sure that their is no paper that is jammed in the paper draw. Also open the main panel where you would change the toner and pull out the little draw underneath the toner, I believe it is marked A2. Make sure that there is no paper there as well. Another place that paper will sometimes hide is in the left panel by the duplex system. Sometimes a little piece of paper gets left behind and this can cause the system to think there is still paper jammed in the machine. If all else fails try restarting the system. If you are still experiencing a problem than I would recommend you call your servicing dealer.

Hopes this helps.

Error Code 5100


For error 5100 try the following, I know it works on some Canon printers:
Unplug printer, press and hold "resume" button, press "power" button and hold down, release "resume", press "resume", release and press again. Release both buttons and now press "resume" 4 times. Power off. Re-start.
Hope this helps.
