    the printer goes to print, takes the paper in then a high-pitched grinding noise starts and a window with the error code 5100 pops up.

    When you try to print anything, the printer starts printing and then stops saying error code 306A and that it has lost connection to the computer

Canon pixma mx432 printer error 5100

I have a Canon mx432 that was new, but gave me a 5100 message that I couldn't clear. I cleaned the transparent belt that guides the print cartridges, and now it works great. I spent hours on it until I cleaned that strip - - nothing else worked

I can't print my documents. My Printers model is Canon IP2700 and it says there that the error code is 5100. How can I fix the problem? we need the print immediately. Is there any solution we can fix it?

Usually, error code 5100 means some kind of obstruction in the print path, maybe something that had fallen inside the printer, the gears being jammed by something that got loose inside the printer, or ink on the clear plastic encoder/timing strip (a plastic strip about 1/4" in width that you can see running from side to side and connects to the print head).

Clean the plastic strip with alcohol , check if there is nothing blocking the head carriage set (sometimes kids play and hide toys, pens, coins, inside printers, VCRs or any other devices that have "doors"...).

Hope this info may help you!

Error message 5100 on Canon i560 printer

Hi You can Try
Same old errors
Error Code 5100
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.
