Hi


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.


Thanks

Rylee

How do I clear a 5100 error code? The part of the printer with the ink cartridges is lodged way back in the machine. There is no paper jammed in it


You do not say which model printer you have.
However error code 5100 usually comes up after paper jam.
The error indicates 2 possibilities, either their is something stuck or a sensor detecting the paper jam issues is faulty.

1. turn off the unit....unplug the power cable
2. Remove the cartridge...manually slide the carriage assembly\ printhead back and forth.

3. Clean the rail against which the assembly slides with a tissue ensuring that there is no ink residue on it.

4. Clean the gold contacts of the cartridges and the printhead with a cotton swab dipped in little alcohol.

5. Check the paper feed tray, roller assembly area and the area where the carriage moved for any stuck obstruction like paper, paper clips, pins etc and if found remove it.

6. Turn the unit back on and check

7. If error 5100 continues, then an electric sensor that detects paper jams is faulty.

Sensors can be costly to repair/replace and it is often more cost effective to opt in for a new unit.

I have an error code 5100. It started grabbing the paper wrong and a piece got jammed. I removed it and then it says error 5100. I have turned it off and on a few times and it is still there.


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.

What does error code 5100


For error 5100 try the following, I know it works on some Canon printers:
Unplug printer, press and hold "resume" button, press "power" button and hold down, release "resume", press "resume", release and press again. Release both buttons and now press "resume" 4 times. Power off. Re-start.
Hope this helps

Solution 1:

Solution 2:

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.
