Issue: ERROR: Service error 5100 appears while printing from the computer
1. Allow print head to cool down
2. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to ensure a secure connection
3. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
4. Reseat ink cartridge (MP160 / MP180 / MP460)
5. The MP160 may require repair
Try the above... and you also can see this on the canonusa web site....
try to remove the cartridge from the printer and then try to print some docx,,, without the cartridge....
an error should say that the installed cartridge is not recognized...
just try to print thrice or more then put back the cartridge...
this should solve the problem....
Make sure the tape covering the hole on the bottom of the black cartridge is removed. and then go into the printers folder and right click on your printer icon and go into the properties of that printer and there should be something in there to tell it that you changed cartridges and you can also print a test page as well.
