I've got printer canon PIXMA MP170, it has error 5100. The green light and orange light flashing 2 times flowing each other.

I am assuming this is a new printer install. You have to go thru the entire printer and remove ALL the shipping tapes. This one was worse than my HP all in one, which had 12 pieces.

Cannon Pixma ip90 printer mechanical failure code 5100. Printer works for about 2 inches then stops with failure code 5100


The error 5100 actually means nothing. You need to look at the printers green and orange lights. they will be flashing in a certain sequence. Count the way the lamps flash ie.Green are mechanical faults and orange are operator correctable faults. When you have the info repost and i will help you further.

    Green and orange light is blinking continuous.. and the cartridge head is not moving. ip1980.. please help..


    check the status of the printer in its driver. the error will be shown there. error 5100 is the most common. error 5100 means the carriage is experiencing difficulty in moving itself.
