Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.
