  • Press down and hold the "On/Off" button, which is located on the printer's operator panel, for one second. Wait 15 seconds and then tap the button again. Attempt to print or scan a document.

  • Check the paper feed tray on the front end of the Canon to see if there is any paper visibly stuck inside the printer. Open the printer cover by gripping the front edge of the printer and lifting upwards.

  • Grab the edge of the jammed paper and gently pull towards you to remove the paper from the paper feeder. Unplug the Canon's power cable and USB cable, and then turn the printer around.

  • Pull off the rear plastic cover tab and check if there is any visible paper jam. Grab the edge of the paper and gently pull toward you until the paper is removed.

  • Push the rear plastic cover tab back into place, and reconnect the power cable and USB cable. Attempt to print or scan another document to see if the error is resolved.

  • Lift open the printer's cover again and wait for the ink carriage to slide into view. Press the "Push" button on the front of the first ink tank. Pull the tank out and then push it back into place to ensure it is properly seated

  • Repeat the process with the other three ink tanks, and then close the printer's cover. Power the printer off and then back on again

    Receiving error code 5100. what to do?


    Hi You can Try 2 things.

    ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

    First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

    If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



    Next try.

    It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
    Solution 1:
    Clean the timing strip.

    Solution 2:
    The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

    Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.


    Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

    Error code 5100


    Error code 5100 /this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is
    something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that
    you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or
    in my case popcorn. Check VERY thoroughly.
