Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
Hi I havent used my printer for a while and hooked it up yesterday and installed a new drive onto the laptop. I am trying to print a black and white and full color doc to test the machine and it is saying that it is both low on ink and service error 5100-what is this and how do I fix it? Ive never had problems before when the printer is dormant
Hi! The printer may be low on ink. But try this, Remove the Printer from power source and press hold the power button for 30secs. Plug the printer again and turn it on, it should reset the printer's system and you can get rid of the error code. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

Tips for a great answer:
5100 is service error. just follow this steps to fix this,
1. Hold RESUME then press & hold POWER
2. Release RESUME, then press it twice, the light should go amber then green again.
3. you're now in service mode (you can release POWER now)
for reset waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once.
