Error 5100 on Canon Pixma iP8500. flashes orange 2 times. Sounds like the paper isn't being picked up. But I don't know how to fix it.

You know, I think this is the most common problem in all Canon Printers and yet Canon must do something about this. In my case I already have 3 Canon Printers The first 1 is Canon Pixma MP160 and the problem is "The Ink absorber is Full" then my 2nd is Canon Pixma MP145 still the same problem occurs my 3rd is MP145 also and I know sooner or later I will be facing the same problem.

Sometimes I think the Canon's Printer is Disposable it won't last for a long time. I just hope I can find the right solution to this problem, so that i can fix my printers. I have lost 2 already and maybe sooner the other one will follow.

Hi there
You can try to reset the cartages this may do it Please call back let us know if it worked for you, PLEASE.

But some time when you get the chance do clean the waste tank out.
 

  1. Start with printer off

  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click "Power" button. Green led should be on

  3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.

  4. Without releasing the Power Button, click "Resume" button for two times and release Both Buttons.

  5. Click "Resume" for four times then soon click "Power" button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).

  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

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.

Waste ink absorber is full


Hi there. I'm a certified Canon repair tech and what you will need to do is go to Canons website and get the 1-800 number for the nearest repair center. They will need to replace the waste ink absorber kit on the bottom of your printer. This will cost you anywhere from $50 and up depending on where you take it. It should only take the repair center an hour to replace it provided the yhave the kit there to put it in.

Hope this helps you out.
