Error 5100 means cartridge error. The printer detected no cartridge installed in the printer.

The most common solution is to inspect the surface contact of the cartridge. make sure the plastic strips that protects the contact is already remove. Or if there is dirt and or corrosion in the surface contact remove it with cotton moistened with alcohol.

For some units printer reset will fix the problem.

Tell me the model of your printer so I can give you the exact reset procedure.

Please rate this solution.
Thanks

Hello thanks for using FixYa

Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer. Actually the printer is not actually loading the cartridge and showing you the error 5100.

To solve these follow the following steps. I hope it works
  • Turn off printer
  • Remove both the cartridges from the printer
  • Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches
  • Return the cartridges
  • Turn on the printer.
Error will be removed

Service Error 5100


Somtimes in order to get the printer to reset properly you must turn it off, unplug the usb (or other data cable), unplug the power cord and wait a bit. (Canon says 10mins.!).
Then reconnect cables and turn it on.
This should reset an alternate orange/green light condition.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Service error 5100. Cancel printing and Press OK button. If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail.


Had a same problem, here is what i ve received from canon support:
"Dear Customer,
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.
Please be advised that error 5100 indicates a carriage error and the machine will require service."

However I managed to solve it by myself by perform few paper path tests as there was a paper jam inside.
