Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100
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.

I have Error 5100 in my All in one printer Canon MP180


Error 5100 is a carriage error. There is a plastic strip that goes through the carriage, if that strip is dirty, damaged, or has come loose, that will cause the problem.

Power off, check the strip, use a barely damp qtip to very gently clean it, and try power on again.

If you still have the error, it is probably mechanical, and could be any number of things, none of which are easy (or clean) to fix.

I had this problem. Removed both ink cartridges and carefully wiped the contacts and print nozzles with a tissue. Re-inserted cartridges and printer now works perfectly.

Good Luck.
