Service Error 5100 on Canon MP150

:
I have tried reseating the cartritdge, and turning unit on/off, but problem persists.
I am using only the Black ink, the color cartridge is there but empty. 'Ink cartridge Setting' under the 'Maintenance' tab is set to Black only.
Problem started when I replaced the Black cartridge with a remanufactured one from OfficeMax. The printer worked fine then, but next time I turned it on the Error appeared.
Is it past the point of no return?

You can also uninstall and reinstall printer drivers if you have the cd or visit the manufactuarer's website and download those drivers.. be sure to reboot after uninstalling them too.. if you need additional assistance let me know...

also check to be sure the printer cartridge is all the way in too..
that's helped many others as well.. also try taking the cartridges out and shake them for a few minutes, reinsert them and reboot everything.. let me know what worked out for you..
good luck,

This problem happens a lot after the machine is out of it's 2 year warranty. There not built to last much longer then that, and it's a pain as I hardly ever used mine.

You will find suggestions everywhere for cleaning the ink bases and foil areas on the cartridges, make sure to clean even the smallest bit of dust off of gears and path of the ink, and make sure there is no paper jams, update the drivers, re-install it, switch usb ports.... then even try popping in a brand new ink cartridge.

Unfortunately, if none of that works, like it didn't for me either, you most likely have the machine blinking "ALARM", E - 2 - 2, or error 22 and you will get like code 5100 and 2,250,0 errors and such when trying to scan.

To put it into English, the machine is saying, "I am f*&^%$ up"

Sorry to have to say it, but there does not seem to be any fix for this problem. Your only choices are to have it repaired, or throw it away and purchase a new printer/scanner.

Canon pixma MP150 has error that flashes up on the laptop screen as Error 5100. How do I fix this?


Turn off printer.
Remove both the cartridges from the printer. Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches.
Return the cartridges and turn on the printer.

Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer.

Hope it helps!

Canon mp 150 printer service error 5100


Hello


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.

Canon PIXMA MP450 "Servic Error 5100"


Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work
