First, power off your printer. Then, reseat (remove and reinsert) your printer cartridges. Then, remove any paper jam that is preventing the cartridges from moving. Power your printer on. Hope this helps.

Hi, I had a paper jam and all I'm getting on screen is ( error code 5100 ). I have missplaced my manual, the machine is a pixma460 all in one. Hope you can help, thanks,


Error code 5100 means that the movement of the fine cartidge holder is blocked. To resolve this, clear the paper jam or any foreign object that is preventing the fine cartridge holder from moving, cancel printing from your computer and then turn OFF the machine and turn it back ON again

Check printer 5100 error message.


error code 5100 means print head temperature rise error. In other word the print head is overheated. First,turn off your printer for some minutes (it recommended to take about 30 secs or more) and let it's cooled down. Turn on again. If the problem still persist,try to check whether the print head is good or not by comparing with another print head. Be carefully,sometimes this problem is caused by short circuitry inside the print head.

Error 5100 on canon mp 160


Hi You can Try

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.

Hope it do for you

Canon mx330 Error 5100 Error 5100 Printer error has occured. Turn printer off and then on again. If this doesnt clear the error, see the users guide for more detail.


Cancel printing, turn off the machine. Then clear the jammed paper or protective material that is preventing the FINE cartridge holder from moving, and turn the machine on again. If not remedied, turn off machine, unplug the power cord of the machine from power supply. Plug machine back in and turn power back on. If problem is not resolved, please contact service center.
