Question about Canon FAX-JX200
Check 5100 how to remove this problem
Error 5100 refers to the encoder strip not being read correctly.
Open the main cover so you can see the carriage (The print head, where the ink cartridges are). While it is moving you must pull out the power lead so it stops mid-travel .with no power you can move the carriage easily. Slid it to the left. You can now see the encoder strip. Its a thin translucent strip running the full width of the machine. I had black lines in it. I suspect it is dirty and wants cleaning with a cotton bud soaked in water. Run the bud along as much of it as you can. If dirty the bud will come out in dark blue. Now dry the strip with a dry bud. BE CAREFULL. do not apply any amount of pressure on it as it can break very easily. It is spring loaded. Move the carriage back to the right side. When it was on the left there may have been a wheel also of the same material up against it. Clean the round strip in the same way. Hopefully that will get it going again.
