SOURCE: Canon Pixma MX300, error code 5100---won't print

For me cleaning the encoder strip fixed it. Needed to clean every little bit of it, even the area back where the printhead parks on the far right.

    Paper won't feed in my Pixma MP 530, and I get a flashing alarm.

    You need to tell us in what is the sequence the orange and green lamps flash. This will tell us what error you are getting. its more accurate than any error code given by the pc.

    I just replaced both ink cartridges and the alarm light is now on. The LCD screen reads check ink, U053, BLK COL. I can't get the printer to work or perform any functions.

    On the canon MX300, holding the "reset" button down for about 10 seconds will extinguish the alarm light & should normalize all functions. The ink level will still indicate "low" , just ignore it.
