SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MP480. Print head slams all the way

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp480#ServiceAndSupport

The above is a link where you can enter '5100' and it will return 3 possible solutions for the error code 5100.


Reset the device when it is not functioning properly. If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.

  1. On the operator panel, press the button. (The display will go blank.)

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON button does not shut off the printer.

  2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the button again.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord and retry if the above steps do not clear the error.
--- Secondly, it says that it could have 'packing' material in the printer when new, blocking the movement of the printhead, but I don't think that's the case since you say the carriage seems to move freely.

I suspect you had a paper jam and removed it from under the main cover. It sounds like you have got grease on the encoder strip (the long blackish plastic strip that runs the full width of the machine. The carriage looks at the encoder so it knows where it is. Clean the encoder with soapy water on a cotton bud. You may have even snapped the encoder which will mean you will need a new one.
Good luck

Canon MP210 printer: There's a 3/16" wide by 16"


Hello.

Yes. That is the encoder strip.

Gently connect the strip on either end behind the carriage rod. The strip has an "L" on one side and a dot on the other. Be sure you put the "L" side on the left. There is a small **** behind the printer head that you must slide the encoder strip through before attaching.

After connecting, if the strip needs cleaning, moisten a clean cloth or tissue with water, then gently grasp the strip between the thumb and forefinger, and carefully pull the moistened cloth along the entire length of the strip in a right-to-left direction. Repeat this step with a different portion of the cloth to ensure that all foreign matter is removed.

Allow the encoder strip to dry, or gently dry the encoder strip with a clean, dry cloth or tissue. Position the cradle near the center, and then plug the power cord in the printer. Close the top cover to allow the print cartridge cradle to move bac.

Hope this helps.

5100 means the carriage is not moving properly, or there is grease or ink on the encoder strip The encoder strip is the clear strip with black lines behind the carriage that runs all the way across the printer. You can clean the strip with a Q-tip just damp with water.

Encoder strip


I tried for hours to reattach my encoder strip, and finally figured out the way to do it after reading many web postings, and my own trial and error.
The key is to use a "dental mirror" that you can pick up at a pharmacy or hardware store for about $5. (Perhaps a small compact mirror may also work.) And you need to focus light back there. (I used a head lamp.)
The problem is you just can not see the small slot through which the encoder strip must be threaded from the front of the printer. It sits in back of the ink cartridges. This thin slot "tunnel" goes though a rectangular piece of plastic. You can feel the rectangular piece of plastic in back of the ink cartridges, and looking with the dental mirror you can see how small the slots are on the right and left side, through which the encoder strip must be threaded. After "seeing" these small slots using the dental mirror, you then can feel them with the tip of a fingernail, and know exactly what you are aiming for as you then feed the encoder strip through. (It doesn't make any difference of you feed the strip from the left or the right, but the down arrow end of the encoder stip must end up on the right when you later attach it to the wire tab.) I fed the strip "blind" after I had formed a strong mental image of exacly what I was trying to do, and now being able to feel the small slot I was aiming for with the tip of a fingernail. (It is tough working in the small space in back of the ink cartridges, and if you have really big hands and fingers it may be impossible. I did not want to use forceps or tweezers because of a fear of damaging the encoder strip.)
The encoder strip then must be attached with the down arrow end on the right attaching to a flimsy looking wire on the right side of the printer. The left end of the encoder strip must be attached to a metal tab on the left side of the printer. You will need to hold tension on the encoder strip, and manually push the sliding ink cartridge back and forth out of the way as you attatch both ends.
(It's probably a good idea to gently clean the encoder stip of all your fingerprints and any smudged ink with a tissue after you get it back in place. Also be sure to clean the metal bar the ink cartridges slide back and forth on, so you don't get error message 0502.)
Be prepared for this to be a very frustating experience!
You will be maddened by how many times it will take to thread the encoder strip though the slot, how difficult it will be to catch the end of the encoder strip on the wire and metal tabs, and how you will have to figure out how to hold tension on the encoder strip so one end won't fall off as you attach the other end.
But once you use the dental mirror to see where you have to thread the encoder strip, and once you see the wire and metal tabs to which the ends of the encoder strip must be attached, then YOU CAN DO IT! It just takes persistance.
