Hi Yes you can try clean.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

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.

Error 5100 appears on lcd when turning it on. How do I fix?


Try removing and reseating the ink cartridges. If that does not work try replacing the cartridges with genuine Canon ink cartridges. This should alleviate your issue as error 5100 is due to cartridge failure of some sort.

HI I HAVE A CANON MX 320 MULTIFUCTION MACHINE, THE INK CARTRIDGES HAVE BEEN REPLACED BUT THE SCREEN KEEPS SAYING PRINTER ERROR HAS OCCURED 5100, HAT DO I DO TO FIX


5100 error means a Carriage Home Position Error.

Just make sure you remove the plastic strip covering the print head and the contact copper of the ink cartridge before you insert it to the cartridge holder.

Other possible solutions is that the cartridge is not properly seated on the carriage or cartridge holder. Once it is not properly seated the cover of the cartridge holder usually hit when it moves.

You may also clean the contact copper of the ink cartridge using an soft cloth or cotton moistened with alcohol to clean the surface. Please avoid touching the surface by your fingers.

Canon Pixma MP110 - Error 5100, cartridge jammed, press OK. But this doesnt fix the problem, any ideas? Many thanks. Happens every time I dont use printer for a while & usually replacing the ink...


Hi You can Try
seen lots of this errors
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.

I had this problem. Removed both ink cartridges and carefully wiped the contacts and print nozzles with a tissue. Re-inserted cartridges and printer now works perfectly.

Good Luck.

Are you using official Cannon cartridges or "ink refill" cartridges? Did you reset your ink levels in the software?
