    Hi I have a service error 5510, re-set and power led's flash alternately.

    I have switched the printer off and restarted it again but to no avail!



    This happened approx 2 hours after cleaning the internal wates filter.

    The printer worked fine for about 20 or so minutes after the service and callibration, only to return to the desk, finding this problem had come about.

Canon PIXMA iP1000 - Service Error 5100


It means that the waste ink absorbers are filled and you will need to replace them and take the machine to a service center.. Well thats what Canon says,, then when you get there they say buy a new one..

Any way forget them try this..
1.) unplug machine (power cable from back of printer.
2.) hold the power button down and plug cable back in.the printer light will stay on ,,
3.) still holding power,, press the paper feed button.. light will change to orange
4.) press paper feed button again.. It will turn to green
5.) release power button and enjoy..

Depend on the the firmware skip step 4...

That will bypass canons firmware and reset the counters.. Print as you will now..

Service error 5100


Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that 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.

Error message


The manual for the BJ-30 can be found here: http://downloadlibrary.usa.canon.com/cpr/pdf/Manuals/BJ30_user_manual.pdf On page 97 (105 of 183) it indicates your error message. Unfortunately, it does not give a way to resolve the issue other than bringing the device in for repair. I then came across this page which is a bit more descriptive with the error codes. http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/canon/bj/bj30.htm F12 is aPrintHead Temperature Error. It suggests trying to install a NEW print head. if the problem continues, the printer will require service.
