    Does anyone have a solution to this? I'm also running into the same
    problem while installing the brand new printer. All I've done so far is
    plug in the line cable into the L slot, plug the power cord and pressed
    the ON/OFF button. The power button and the alarm lamp lights up one
    after the other and the message "Check Printer" and 5100 are displayed
    on the LCD.

    I hope someone can give some tips. Thanks in advance!

Check for a small clear rectangular hard plastic bit that you may have left inside the printer when you removed the orange protective tape from the inside the printer, on the right (Step 3, Easy Setup Instructions). This solved the same problem for me.

Error Message: Check Ink U051

This message appears when the cartridge not installed, not properly installed, or non supported cartridge is installed.
As a result the printer cannot recognized the installed cartridge.

Remedial action:

* Replace the cartridge

Printed 47 pages, paper for page 48 started to feed incorrectly & was yanked out. However, LCD keeps saying paper jam even though entire paper was retrieved. Turning machine off, on, examined for any...


More likely especially if the paper was pulled out backwards, that the paper sensor just before the platen roller is bent or broken. When you pull paper back up thru the feeder it gets caught on this sensor tab and it gets bent, holding it up just like a paper scrap would. If it's broken or you can't locate it to bend it straight, you will need a shop to repair your printer.

Alram light


Did you replace the Black ink cartridge or the Color cartridge, or did you replace both?

Facing the front of the Canon Pixma MX310, did you install the Black ink cartridge to the left side, and the Color cartridge to the right side?

Do Not reverse how the ink cartridges go. Do Not install a Black ink cartridge, in the Color cartridge holder.

If the Alarm light came on, check to see if you have an error message in the LCD. (Not trying to insult your intelligence. The LCD is the little rectangular Liquid Crystal Display on your Pixma MX310 Operation Panel, to the left of the numeric buttons)

Do you have the Pixma MX310 On-screen manual?
Start>Hover on All Programs>Canon>Pixma MX310>On-screen manual

Click on the Troubleshooting heading.
If you have an error message code, click on the heading ->
An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD.

Also suggest you click on the heading -> Problems Sending Faxes.

See if the information provided has a solution to your problem.
