Canon iP1600 Error 5100

I recently dropped my printer off a fairly short chair and since then its stopped working. When i turn it on the lights alternate in flashing and when i try to print i get error 5100, "Cancel printing and then turn the printer off and then back on, if this doesnt solve the problem consult the manual" Is my printer done for ? or has something inside just gotten loose... any common things happen when a printer is dropped? Thanks in advance

    I have the same symptoms as omarv, although I didn't drop the printer. The suggested solution - cleaning the 1/4" wide ribbon with isopropyl alcohol - did not work.

I am getting error message 5100....can't locate the manual...Any ideas? Thanks!


Error 5100 indicates "carriage jam". The carriage is the assembly that contains the print-head and ink cartridges. This error can be difficult to solve because various things can cause it.

Make sure the ink cartridges and print-head are installed properly. Remove them and re-seat them.

Check the gears as best you can for any obstructions.

If the carriage moves to a center position when you open the cover as if to change cartridges, try a reset to clear the error message :

1. Turn off printer (use button, don't unplug)
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal

Sometimes you have to try this a couple of times, if you've never done it before. If this does not work, unplug, wait 3-4 minutes, then re-plug in.

Canon ip1600 error 5100


First, reseat your ink cartridges.
if reseating your printer cartridges doesn't work, keep looking for things that would cause the printing head carriage (the thing the print cartridges sit in) to not function properly.


5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
3. fix purge unit


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

5100 is a carriage travel error, either something is stopping the carriage or there is ink or grease on the encoder strip.
