Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

1 Answer

I am getting a service error 5100.

Both the power lamp and the alarm lamp flash alternately. The books says to disconnect the pwer and the printer cable for a while. I've done that but when I plug everything back in, the unit turns on but when the ink cartridges move to the right, they make a grinding sound and stay on the right hand side of the unit.

There is something blocking the carriage from seating home. 5100 generally means there is either something in the paper path or an obstruction in the ink carriage path. Open the clamshell to look at the carriage path and make sure the cable connecting the carriage is not restricted.

Have a canon mp 240 keeps flasing P and 3 and the alarm light and on button are also flashing......what the it wont scan it wont print does any one know what this means


When the Power and Alarm lamps flash alternately, and P and number (error code) are alternately displayed on the LED, an error requiring servicing might have occurred.

Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. Plug the power cord of the machine back in, and then turn on the machine. If the problem is not resolved, contact your Canon service representative.

Alarm light wont stop flashing


How old is your printer? Maybe a part in your printer has reached its service life and has to be replaced. Please indicate error messages if there are any.
