My HP Laserject 5100 Printer has the Paper Jam Problem. After that, I check printer. But i haven't seen any paper jam. When i print out, nothing show on paper and show the paper jam.. How to fix?


Hi,

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

MY CANON MP830 WILL DISPLAY A "ERROR 5100" USUALLY BEFORE OR AFTER PRINTING. IF I RESTART IT WILL PRINT ONCE, THEN DISPLAY "ERROR 5100." I CAN'T FIND ANY PAPER JAM IN PRINTER. HOPE YOU CAN HELP. RAY...


Other than:
1) checking that no paper is jammed in the printer (don't forget to check the rear access door for paper jammed internally)

2) holding the <On/Off> button until the display goes blank, then waiting ten seconds before pressing <On/Off> button again (to reset the unit) and

3) checking that the ink cartridges are properly installed,

if the problem persists, your Canon MP830 may require repair.

Hello, my Canon PIXMA IP1600 is suddenly not working and has a code 5100 erorr. What to do?


Error 5100 is always a carriage error.
first thing to do is check is check the timing strip(plastic strip wide around 1/4 inches and usually located behind the print head)
Make sure there is nothing around it like piece of paper or staple or pen/pencil etc.
Make sure the strip is moving freely and hasnt come out of the roller.

Check VERY thoroughly for any obstruction at all, a very small piece of paper can cause the problem.

Printing error 5100; came in midst of printing multiple pages


Hi You can Try 2 things.

There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
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.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
