Error 5100


5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
or you might try
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 a foreign object . check there is nothing even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.
hope this helps

What does 5100 mean in canon mx310 series printer


There are several possibilities.

Have you changed out a ink cartridge lately? You can try and do a power reset by holding the power button for about 1 second until the machine powers down. You can also remove the power plug. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the printer back on. Then wait for the printer to fully cycle before trying to print.

There are other possibilities. Let me know what has happened just before you saw this error code and I can give you more information.

There are a error massage check printers 5100


Error 5100 on Canon's usually means there is an obstruction in the printing path stopping the paper feeding properly, or the clear film sensor the cartridges use may be dirty.

Check inside your printer for any foreign objects and also see if the clear film sensor is dirty. Clean with methylated spirits very gently if you have to.

Hope this helps.

Error code 5100 check print need to know how to check print


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.
