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.

Canon PIXMA iP90v Service error 5100 makes clicking noise then gives service error


Error 5100 is mostly because of some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip.
There is the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) which 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).

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Regarding service error 5100 in canon ip1880 printer


1. Try to reset the ink counter by iptool software (sometimes it help)
2. Unplug the usb cable and then turn off and on your printer for a few times.
service error 5100 seems like indicating of mecanism exhausted or out of buffer ram in the printer. You should reduce the amount of pages to print at one time.
Good luck.

5100 error with canon i255 printer


5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width) 
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.

Service error 5100. Cancel printing and Press OK button. If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail.


Had a same problem, here is what i ve received from canon support:
"Dear Customer,
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.
Please be advised that error 5100 indicates a carriage error and the machine will require service."

However I managed to solve it by myself by perform few paper path tests as there was a paper jam inside.
