Also i just got one from a thrift store and found that there is a spring catch that holds the carriage up in the rest position and the spring had sprung and was not holding the carriage up and the ink jets got messed up and spewed ink all over the place lol took me 3 hours to clean the gunk to then find the spring problem..... to check this open the cover where the ink is. After the cartridges go to the change out spot on the left then carefully reach in with needle noise pliers and push in and lift up on the purge it should raise then when you ease it back it should lock into place and then there is a spring lever as your looking into the printer closest to you in front of the purge if you pull back gently and the purge does not move downwards then that is your problem its a pain in the @#$ to reset, the bottom of the lodges in front of the lower arm assembly of the catch, the top of the spring it goes forward towards the purge and is wedged underneath a small platform with a small notch about 1/16"x 1/32" but after i did this no more error 5100 now i just need new ink cartridges : D

I Have a a Canon PIXMA MP810, suddenly showing error code 5100 How can I fix this? Gene Deitch genedeitch@yahoo.com


Hi

Error 5100 on canon is a Carriage Home Position Error. Try reseating the printer cartridges. If that doesn't help make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left. Try cleaning the plastic strip (encoder strip, behind the carriage) that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated. Use alcohol and a swab (Q-tip) to clean. Before cleaning unplug it from the power supply. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Getting a 5100 error message on our MP620. We reboot the machine and it functions fine for multiple print jobs then errors again.


5100 says the carriage is not moving freely across the page or there is ink or grease on the encoder strip. Look inside for any paper scraps, and clean the strip that runs across behind the carriage assembly with a Q-tip damp with alcohol. It's fragile, so don't press too hard.
