5100 says the carriage is not free to move all the way left and right, or there is ink or grease on the encoder strip, the plastic strip behind the carriage assembly. You can clean the strip with a Q-tip just damp with water.

Says service error 5100 on my canon mp160 printer. it said cancel printing, turn off then back on. didnt work. what do i do?


5100 is a carriage error, make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left, and then clean the encoder strip, behind the carriage, carefully with a damp Q-tip. Usually grease gets on the strip and gives you that error.

Error 5100 in Canon MP160


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.
