SOURCE: Error 5100 - what does this mean?

Hi Luza, A 5100 error is a carriage problem. That means it could be the code strip, carriage assembly or logic board. First make sure nothing is keeping the print head from moving all the way across the printer. If the smallest thing blocks the head from going all the way across it will generate this error. You'll want to look hard for ANY obstructions anywhere. Throughly check the gears and rollers for obstructions too. Second the code strip (or timing strip) is the 1/4 inch plastic strip that runs across the printer and through the head carriage. It's got supports on both sides. If becomes dislodged it will generate this error. (it's got a tesnsion spring on one end) I have a feeling that is your problem. That somehow when you replaced the cartridges you may have dislodged the code strip. That might account for not being able to correctly align the print head too. Make sure it's straight, level and secure. Also make sure it's not dirty. Grease or dirt on the code strip can generate a 5100 error. You can clean it with a damp cloth (water) but be careful if your going to remove it from it's anchors. You can try cleaning the steele bar that the carriage runs across as well, but you'll have to lube it back up with a cloth dampened with some 3 in 1 oil or a light machine oil. If none of that works and your ABSOLUTLY SURE there is nothing in there blocking the printer then it must be either the carriage assembly or logic board. If either is the problem you're going to need service on the unit or a new printer. I hope this helps. Please let me know how you make out, Dude

SOURCE: Alignment of printhead on Canon Pixma iP4600

This is simply a case of the ink tanks not being pressed in hard enough. They do click in, as the manual instructs but, unless they are fully pressed in top and bottom, this problem occurs. It's a shame that the Canon manuals and even the support centre do not mention this simple solution.

SOURCE: I keep getting this message

The print head is the carriage that holds the ink cartridges and has tiny nozzles on the bottom that spray the ink on your paper. The nozzles have to be aimed (aligned) either automatically, or in WinXP with the following manual process:

1 Left click on the start button
2 Open "Printers and faxes" on the Start menu.
3 Find your printer on the printer list and right click on it once.
4 Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
5 Click on the "Maintenance" tab at the top of the new window.

A selection page for all sorts of upkeep items is then shown. Manual alignment of the print head is one of the choices.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

How do I get a user Manual for Canon MX922


For some reason the list of MX printers is cut short in the 800's. Go instead to this web page: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx922#BrochuresAndManuals
. If this link doesn't work, I got to it by locating the Canon support page and searching for PIXMA MX922 (Search Canon is at the upper right). However you get to the MX922 page, scroll down to "Recommended Downloads" and choose either MAC or Windows Manual in PDF Format. Good luck.

Try switching printer off then unplugging the power for 15 or so minutes. If that doesn't work and same error pops up when you turn printer back on, contact Canon.

How do I get a paper conformation for faxes on a cannon mx922


From page 98 of the fax users manual:
"This report is printed after each fax reception.
• At the time of purchase, the machine is set so that RX REPORT is not printed at all.
You can set the machine to print RX REPORT each time it receives a document, or only when an error occurs by selecting RX report in Auto print settings under FAX settings."

You should have the manual on the cd that came with the printer. If not try the link listed.

I am trying to set up my samsung galaxy s3 to my pixma mx922 for printing but it will not connect to the printer. When I plug my phone directly into the printer it says my divice is not supported. H


Hey have you tried Google cloud print? I have looked into your printers functions and it supports it. Also is it connected to the internet? and are you sure it is? there should be a way to navigate to the wifi option on the printer and if you can, then see if there is and IP address. If so then you are connected. And connecting the phone by cable is for actual cannon cameras not phones. Try that and lets see where we are.
