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.

please rate your response.
Thanks, SF

I have an error 5100 on my Canon mx320 printer what do i do?


5100 says the carriage is not moving freely from side to side, or there is grease on the clear plastic encoder strip behind the carriage. You can clean the grease with a Q-tip and alcohol, but also look inside on the far right and left sides for anything like paper scraps that can stop the carriage.
