Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
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.Reset the printer
1. hold RESUME then press & hold POWER
2. release RESUME, then press it twice, the light should go amber then green again.
3. you're now in service mode (you can release POWER now)
I think waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once.
