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.

SOURCE: 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.

Had the same problem, i just replaced the black ink cartridge which was finishing at that time and resetted the counters. No problems after that. Not sure whether this will help though.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP830 error 5100

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

Cancel printing, turn off the machine. Then clear the jammed paper or protective material that is preventing the FINE cartridge holder from moving, and turn the machine on again. If not remedied, turn off machine, unplug the power cord of the machine from power supply. Plug machine back in and turn power back on. If problem is not resolved, please contact service center.

How do you fix error message 5100 on my canon mx320 printer. I just went and bought new ink cartridges for it and put them in and now it doesn't work and this error message shows on my laptop


error 5100 means that the printer cartridge carrier can not move freely.

see inside the printer and find the one causing the cartridge carrier to stop. It could be a piece of paper or a dried ink on top of the absorber pads.

Canon pixma mx328 error 5100


This error is one of the most common issues with Canon printer. Let me share my experience and how I used to fix this error.



First, turn off the printer, unplug the usb cable and power cord. Now, also turn off the computer (it needs to be restarted since the error is showing on the computer and will never go until you restart the system).



I hope you are not using longer usb cable other than the one that came with the printer. Sometimes long and defective cable causes this problem.



When you turn on the machine, open the lid (front panel door) and help move the cartridge carriage with your hand so that it'll move sideways. Sometimes when the carriage stuck, this happens.



If the above tips don't help, you need to call Canon and ask them your problem. If you are in the U.S. use this number to call Canon "1-800-OKCANON" or you can write using this form (Click here)



Good luck.



Thanks for using FixYa.
