SOURCE: Error message: Service error 5100 on my new Canon MP160 Printer

Error Code.........Description
5000 ...................Home position error
5100 ...................Carriage control error
5200 ...................Head temperature sensor error
5400 ...................Printer temperature sensor error
5600 ...................No cartridge error
5C00 ...................Purging operation error
5200 ...................Scanner cartridge error

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from 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) Hope this helps some of you out.
good luck (^_^)

SOURCE: Cannon mx 310 error 5100 Says chck printr with alarm light flashi

heres the problem from service manual: error 5100, a error occured in your encoder signal, it list 4 things in the serice manual.
carriage unit. carriage motor, logic board, timing **** film.
ok my first thing i would look at is the film that runs directly behind the print head i would think it is dirty. just turn on printer and get print head to the middle and turn off machine, gentle move print head to one side and gentle clean the film strip with a cloth with a little metho on it, move print head to other side and clean other part of ****.
i reckon that will fix your problem its a common problem they tend to get a bit of grease on the timming ****.

SOURCE: error message 5100

In this particular printer, this Error is described as Cartridge Home Position error. Try the steps that I am giving you:---- 1.Turn off and unplug the printer from the power supply.
2.Remove any paper.Buy a can of compressed air from an electronics shop or computer store. Use the compressed air (Not a vacuum!!!) to blast out any dust bunnies, paper particles and debris. (Don't do this with the cartridges removed as you're likely to fill the printhead with air!!)Use isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab (Qtip) to clean the plastic strip that runs the length of the guide rail (the metal rail that the cartridge carriage moves along), it may be contaminated with ink and debris.Remove and reinsert the ink cartridges inside the cartridge carriage to ensure that they're connecting properly.
3.With the power off, carefully slide the print head (carriage) to the center of the guide rail. You should not have to force it! (There will be some light resistance but it should move quite easily by gently pushing on it with your finger.)
4.Close all the access doors, plug it back in, connect your USB cable and turn on the power.As it runs through the initialization, the printer should sense that the carriage is out of position and automatically move it back to where it should be.

Thank you, Have a nice day.

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..

The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.

Error 5100 on my canon mx 310.


the 5100 is the carriage error and can be caused by 4 different sensors. First off the "Timing Strip" that passes through the back of the Carriage Assembly can be contaminated with ink spots and this needs to be cleaned. Open the cover and use your flashlight to examine the timing strip as much as you can see. You really don't have much access to this strip unless you remove the covers,..and doing that is considerable work. The other items that can cause this error are the sensor inside the carriage unit, the drive motor for the carriage asm, and of course the main logic card. However, 99.6% of the time it is the Timing strip which is easitly contaminated with splattered ink.
