Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
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 come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I had a paper Jam and know printer error 5100 mesage is coming up, I turned off the printer for 5 min but when I turn it back on it make a turn nois and then a screeching noise then stop.


Sometimes when you get a paper-jam and remove the sheet, there can be little pieces of paper still stuck in the machine. This will cause your printer to do exactly what you are describing. Also remember that when removing a paper jam, use caution and care when removing the paper. To much force can damage the rollers and small gears inside your machine.
I hope this assists you,
Regards,
Nico

Canon MX7600 error 5100, 5C20


Yes, 5100 means the carriage is not moving back and forth properly or there is grease on the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. Grease spots make it lose count and slam into the side and grind gears. You need to clean the strip with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, but very carefully, not too much pressure on the strip.

Error 5100 Just replaced the bigger black cartridge and it went back into the side of lthe lprinter and then started a screeching noise and a window came up to say it was error 5100.Turned printer off and...


You've got a carriage control error.

Try taking the cartridges out completely, look for ANY debris, no matter how small, and clean it out. Reset the cartridges back into place carefully and try again.

Error 5100


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5100 on canon is a Carriage Home Position Error. Try reseating the printer cartridges. If that doesn't help make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left. Try cleaning the plastic strip(encoder strip, behind the carriage) that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated. Use alcohol and a swab (Q-tip) to clean. Before cleaning unplug it from the power supply.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

My HP Laserjet 1200 is screeching constantly


Probably the laser-mirror motor. It will screech until the load gives a error and the printer shows error/ is dead.
However, the motor can be lubed. Remove sides, remove screws found, remove top cover. Remove and open the black box containing laser. Remove motor board and lube the motor, dont get the mirror dirty. Asseble. Total time 15min...

Dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.


The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.

Error code 5100 /this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is
something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that
you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or
in my case popcorn. Check VERY thoroughly.
