5100 error:
Many people have reported this error as being caused from a jam somewhere inside the printer, or a part not cleaned.
After you have inspected, reset the printer with the following steps:
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..

It is one of two things.

a bad ink cartridge (the chip located on the gold part of it)
or
bad USB cable.

IF you have a spare cable simply change them out.

If you are refilling your cartridges, it is time to replace them.

There seem to be a number of involved suggested fixes for the 5C10 error code.

Please go to this web page, and click the "Service and Support" link.
This will display a "Please enter your question" field. Type "5C10" into the field and click the Search button.
The first entry displayed will be a link to "ERROR LCD: Error Code 5C10" -- click the link
Three new links will eventually display:
  • Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
  • Removing paper jams MP800R / MP830 / MP530
  • The MP830 may require repair

Click each link to see if the solution provided is appropriate to your situation.

Received a service error 5C10, what do I need to do?


No 5C10 code to refer. I assume your error is 5010. If yes, that's mean your scanner unit is not functioning well. Need to replace it.

Service error 5c10, error code 6a00 wored


6A00 is the error when the purge assembly is broken or jammed. You need a shop to install a new one since the entire print engine has to come out to replace it.

Error message 5C10, won't print. Need locations


I think there was a broken pieces of hardware in the print carriage.
According to the Canon Center this one cannot be fixed. If your printer is under warranty, send it to them.
