5110 is carriage lift mechanism error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Cannon mp800 will not print. Shows error 5110

I had the same problem but fixed myself.

What I had to do was open the lid and turn the printer on. While the printer is going through its startup GENTLY push the print head and cartgridge tray to the right.
What I think happened with mine, was it was turned off while the lid was open and an ink cartridge was out. When turned on it could not test or clean, hence the problem. So gently pushing to the right it was able to shift everything back into place for startup test. Hope this helps some of you.

Error 5110

It's a carriage error, open your printer cover and look for obstructions. If you don't see anything, remove and reinstall your cartridges, both color and black.

Test the printer.

Hope this helps. Have a nice day!

Mp500 says no paper

You may not be aware that there's two paper trays in your MP500... One is in the bottom and requires extending to be able to fill it with paper while the other is at the back/top which is a lot easier to spot.

Because of these two trays there's a paper selection switch on the printer which has a little outline of the printer and two LED light indicators to show which is currently selected.

You might want to try pressing this switch to select the other paper tray and then pressing OK to see if that then prints anything in the queue.

I'd recommend checking the user manual for more information on the paper trays and pay particular attention to the printing preferences > Paper Source option when you print to ensure you select the correct tray.

Hope that helps

Error code 5110 on MP500 Pixma printer

This could be the problem - Take out your catridges and slide the cart over towards the left a bit. You will need a little mirror for this. Look through the rectangular cutouts at the bottom of the carriage, and find what looks like 2 very tiny black sensors. I think these pick up the lights from the LEDs in the cartridge, and I spilt ink on these while refilling my carts. Take a cotton bud and clean these off. As soon as I did this the error went away and printer is 100% OK again. (This was an MP530 - but should be similar) Cheers.
