Usually an error 5100 code is saying that the ink carriage has problems. Usually something currently is or recently hammed the cartridge carriage. With the machine turned off and the power cord unplugged, open the machine and inspect the inside do you see any stray pieces of paper along the paper's usually route?

There is a way to reset the machine to clear out the error. I would need to know the exact model of your Canon.

Error 5100 appears on lcd when turning it on. How do I fix?


Try removing and reseating the ink cartridges. If that does not work try replacing the cartridges with genuine Canon ink cartridges. This should alleviate your issue as error 5100 is due to cartridge failure of some sort.

Try cleaning the contacts on the printer and the cartridge with rubbing alcohol. Then unplug the printer for 10 mins. If that does not work contact the cartridge manufacturer and they should send a replacment.

I have a PIXMA MP450 printer and error code 5100 displays on the LCD. What do I need to do?


error code 5100 means it cannot recognize the follwing UO51 cartridge. 
A lot of the time the cartridges need to be re-set. for this :-- 

Remove both cartridges, turn off the printer for a few seconds. Then, restart your printer and wait for it to warm-up. When it's finished warming up and you see the error code for missing ink cartridges, open the printer and insert both of them and close the printer. 

That might take care of it because the restarting of your printer, "fakes it out" every once in a while.

Hope this helps.
thanks for using FixYa

U150 canon pixma MP830 "the following inktank can not be recognized" magenta. Please help, Thanks, Ted


I have had this problem repeatedly lately. To try the Stop/Reset solution already mentioned, I turned on my infrequently used Canon Pixma MP830. Most of the time at a fresh startup it gives an alarm message "the following ink tank cannot be recognized" OR "there are two of the following ink tanks installed" ??! for the single black 8 cartridge !, a Canon original. Of course, tonight it started just fine, but the methods I have used when it does not work because of these alarms are the following:

I open the top, wait for the cartridge carrier to center, unsnap the black 8 cartridge, then snap it back in and close the top. This sometimes works if repeated until the machine recognizes it. Sometimes I unsnap all the cartridges and resnap them. If this doesn't work, I remove the black 8 entirely and use a clean cloth to wipe the electrical contacts of the cartridge in the direction of their length and reinstall. It sometimes takes a repeated combination of these steps and sometimes the two different alarm messages will appear alternately. There does not appear to be any logic to it. Once the machine does recognize it, it works just fine.

However, if the machine is turned off, many times when it is turned back on later I have to go through all this frustrating rigamarole again. I hope it is a glitch with this particular cartridge (fairly new) and not the machine. Next time I get the alarm messages I will definitely first try the Stop/Reset button solution suggestion, but I thought I'd add my two cents solution, which so far has eventually caused the machine to recognize the cartridge.

Error code: U150 The following ink tank cannon be recognized (Cyan)


U150 ink error fixed!

I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

This works!
