Question about Canon Pixma MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I get an error message 5100. What do I do to fix this problem?
Thanks for using FixYa. The error 5100 means it is a Carriage Position Error. The plastic strip that runs the carriage might get some particles of paper or rust and required to be cleaned with some alcohol and swab. If still the problem persists, then it may be due to some obstruction in the print path or gears or some ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. Lubricate the sliders with some white grease, including the purge cap, which is the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks on when it's not in use. Please make sure that it is not split on the small wipers or the black caps. The mechanism can now slide more freely. To access the purge mechanism you need to remove the right panel off of the printer. There are two screws on the behind of the printer and two in front for each side panel. You can locate the front screws behind the grey front panel of the printer. Now open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
