According to the Canon troubleshooting website here are the steps to follow for the PIXMA MX310 and Error Code 5100:
-Remove the cartridges
-Inspect the cartridges to ensure all packaging is removed
-Reinstall the cartridges
-Press the ON/OFF button for 2 seconds
-Unplug the printer and wait 10 seconds
-Check the printer for any obstructions including packaging materials
-Remove the scanner cover
-Open the lid - check for paper that is stuck; these can be very small pieces, so look carefully
-Plug the printer back in and power it on.
If that does not solve the problem you will have to contact a service repair centre. Good luck.. thanks

How do i clear an error 5100 from my canon pixma mp250?


Try this technique. Turn off printer. Hold down Stop/Reset button with one hand and turn printer on with other hand. After green light comes on for the ON button, press the Stop/Reset button two times and you should see the green light blink off and the orange alarm light blink "on" with the first press and then the green light comes back on for the power button and the orange light goes off with the second press (if you did it correctly). Now, you need to hold down the ON button about five seconds, then let go to shut OFF the printer. When you turn it back on, the printer should be back to the factory original condition. Make sure you set all your printer properties the way you want them again from your printer properties dialog boxes because some of the settings may have been stored in the printer's EEPROM, which you just reset to get rid of the offending alarm code.

Error#5100 comes on my printer and printer stopes


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[hitting resume button with power for me]

Reset the printers

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..

Error code 5100 on off blinks twice alarm blinks once E2 in window


Errror code E2 indicates a paper-out situation. Fill the paper. If it's full, fill the paper out and reinsert it. If that doesn't work, try this...

1. Power off the printer
2. Unplug the printer's power cord, wait 5 seconds then replug the power cord in.
3. Hold the Power button for 6 Beeps
4. Release the Power Button
This will reset the printer and should resolve incorrect detection problems

Cannon MP830 Printer purchased in July, 2007. Was working fine until yesterday. suddenly when printing from PC get "Service Error 5C10 and printer alarm light begins blinking". When trying copy -...


It is one of two things.

a bad ink cartridge (the chip located on the gold part of it)
or
bad USB cable.

IF you have a spare cable simply change them out.

If you are refilling your cartridges, it is time to replace them.

Service error 5100?


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. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

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.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
Also, try this reset procedure:

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Error 5100 in Canon MP160


Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100
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.
