Question about Canon Pixma MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Whenever I turn my printer on, I get a "service error code 5100" on my printer's LCD screen. This happens after about 1-2 minutes after the printer is powered on, everytime. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks in advance.
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
