Question about Canon PIXMA™ iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I am trying to print multiple pages. It is stopping midway on the second page. Then I get a error 5100. I've tried turning off the printer and that hasn't worked. I replaced the ink and that didn't work. I replaced the paper and that didn't work.

That is a "general" error.
Please note that the power LED is flashing you a message (blinking green and / or orange).
Like green 3 times.... or green/orange
Please comment what the light is doing...
Or go to canon and view the possibilities:

    The error 5100 and 3-orange flashes means that there is a paper jam or the cover is not fully closed.



    If you are sure that this has been corrected already, then reset the printer:

    Power OFF and unplug from electrical power for ten minutes. The unit will be re-set.



    Also, check Canon's website for more info on error 5100/3-blinking orange lights:

Does the printer display any errors on the printer screen? You could try performing a print cleaning, check this manual for more directions how to do that.

5100 is a carriage error, usually caused by grease on the clear encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. You can clean the strip with a damp Q-tip just damp with plain water.

While trying to copy a letter on a kodak 5100 easyshare the page prints out with a yellow strip about 2 inches wide down the entire right side length of the page . Why is it doing this?


Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after.

Printing error 5100; came in midst of printing multiple pages


Hi You can Try 2 things.

There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
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.


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.

Regarding service error 5100 in canon ip1880 printer


1. Try to reset the ink counter by iptool software (sometimes it help)
2. Unplug the usb cable and then turn off and on your printer for a few times.
service error 5100 seems like indicating of mecanism exhausted or out of buffer ram in the printer. You should reduce the amount of pages to print at one time.
Good luck.
