Try the following:

  1. Reseat the ink cartridges.
  2. Reset the ink absorber.
If this doesn't work then the printer may need repair.

This might have something to do with canon's absurd print cartridge limitation agreement.... where the print cartridge will only print for a certain limit and then locks

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP830 error 5100

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.

SOURCE: The printer flashes orange light five times, and green once

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

This also applies to the i550, i560, i950, i960

12 times is listed an AP position error:

Carefully slide and top covers off to reveal the print head. There is a device that slides back n forth and acts like a window cleaner squeegie on the printhead. This mechanism is probably stuck at its full extention rather than being back at home base. Every time you turn it on and off you should see it try to move but it will seem to be stuck. Give it a little assistance and that should release it. It can get glued up with drying ink. The mechanism that drives the sliding squeegee relies on a spring for it to return and the spring isn't strong, so the whole thing jams up...

which is probably what the code means - jammed mechanism.

My canon MP560 series has an error. it says an error has ocurred .Turn off the printer then back on again.If problem persists see the manual.I have done what has been asked me to do but it is not working....


Your computer will be showing an error code, probably 4 digits. Also the green and orange lamps will be flashing in a set sequence, ie green flashes 4 times and orange 5 times. the sequence of flashing lights is more accurate than the error code.Please come back and tell us what they are.

Cannon Pixma ip90 printer mechanical failure code 5100. Printer works for about 2 inches then stops with failure code 5100


The error 5100 actually means nothing. You need to look at the printers green and orange lights. they will be flashing in a certain sequence. Count the way the lamps flash ie.Green are mechanical faults and orange are operator correctable faults. When you have the info repost and i will help you further.

I have a canon MP550 which has thrown up the error 6C10. I have tried the solutions suggested at FixYa, but to no avail. My printer's only 6 months old. Any suggestions? Regards Jan


It is my pleasure to guide you.


I have done some extensive research on your 'error 6C10'.


I have looked at the following:


QUOTE

PIXMA MP500 Printer
Canon Pixma MP500 Service Manual
http://www.printermanualguide.com/canon-printer/canon-pixma-mp500-service-manual.html

2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (ON/OFF button), or Alarm LED Lit in Orange)

Cycles of blinking in orange (Alarm LED) and green (ON/OFF button) 16 times

Error [Error code] Valve sensor error [6C00]

Conditions An error occurred in the valve sensor during cleaning.

Solution(Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y (QM2-3078)
UNQUOTE


I realize that the '6C00' error is not exactly your but the manual does not have the 6C10. You can download that at the above link.


I also look at the http://www.retrevo.com/support/Canon-MP500-Multifunction-Printers-manual/id/259bh640/t/2/ Canon Pixma MP500 Users Guide Manual. There are several codes but not the 6C10. You can download this above as well.
Good luck and please post back that you are successful, giving thumbs up, or if I can be more helpful.

What is error code 6500?


This is an error indicating a problem with the Logic Board Assembly. It's probably not worth fixing, with printer prices being fairly low.\

According to the MP800 Service Manual:

2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (COPY button), or
Alarm LED Lit in Orange)

Service call errors are indicated by the number of cycles the Alarm LED and COPY button blink, and the corresponding error
code is displayed on the LCD.

*Cycles of blinking in orange (Alarm LED) and green (COPY button) - 20 times

*Other hardware error - Error

*Error Code - [6500]

*Conditions - The PCI bus error is detected by the ASIC.

*Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y

    Green and orange light is blinking continuous.. and the cartridge head is not moving. ip1980.. please help..


    check the status of the printer in its driver. the error will be shown there. error 5100 is the most common. error 5100 means the carriage is experiencing difficulty in moving itself.

    3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

    4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

    5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)
