Service error 5100

I just installed my new canon ip1300, and while trying to print it is giving me a message which says "service error 5100". restart the printer and try again, else refer to the manual.
Also the power lamp and the alarmm lamp are flashing alternately. According to the manual, after restarting the printer if this problem persists, contact the canon service rep.
Do I really need to call those guys?? Or can this problem be resolved?

May be the driver are not installed correctly ... just try reinstalling the drivers ... and make a check that you have inserted the ink cartilage or not ...
if not insert it and then give try ... it may work ..

if problem persists then call the service rep ...

Error message 5100 is displayed


Two questions.

Are you reporting the correct printer model? I cannot find the iP1300 on the Canon website.

Are you reporting the correct Error No? I cannot find an Error No 5100 on the Canon web site.

CANON IP 1300 SERVICE ERROR 5100


ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your ink cartridge carriage that disables it from moving. It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire. You may try cleaning also the encoder strip with a moist tissue paper. Furthermore, you may also try cleaning CAREFULLY the contact points of the cartridge holder and the cartridge itself (those shiny bronze pins) with a moist lint-free cloth.

I am also with the same problem of Canon IP1300, need to know how I can solve this problem of the error 5100, as soon as I bought the product and not used yet, for this mistake, I wonder if this problem is also frequent in the canon machines? !

Service error 5100


Error 5100 is either a logic board, or
the code strip (if that is the problem) is another matter -
It is the plastic strip that runs across the printer and through the head
carriage, it is supported at each end (one end under spring tension).
If it has become dislodged it will give this error, also if it has any ink,
grease or other foreign matter on it, it will give errors.
You can clean it with a cloth dampened with water but you need to exercise
great care to avoid pulling it off its anchors.
The other thing to do is clean the stainless steel bar that the carriage sli
des
on and lubricate it with a cloth moistened with 3-in-1 or light machine oil.
If neither of these works then I guess it is repair shop or replacement time
